This time last year I was in Wisconsin at Mike and Sheena's rehersal dinner..crazy! This means that tomorrow is their one year and this my friends is exciting. So, since I wont be posting in this tomorrow...HAPPY ONE YEAR!

Well, winter break came and went faster then I would have liked. However, I think this break surpassed all the a landslide. I worked, saw Brando twice, had good bonding time with the fam, caught up on sleep and caught up with old friends. Oh, and pigged out on my moms homemade cookies. What could be better?

One week of the spring semester is dunzo...many more to go. It was a bit rough getting back into the swing of things but I will adjust and just take things one day at a time. Two of my classes are part of the education major and they are by far my favorite classes. One is teaching elementary physical education and the other is child lit. Both are going to take a lot of work and free time with projects and such but at least I will use this stuff in the future. I also love love love my sociology of the family prof. I think I could learn a lot from him..if not I can at least get a good laugh at 8am in the morning.

I spent most of today in the library reading..and I took a the library and as I was telling Brandon, I woke up with people looking at me. Is it a crime to sleep in a library? I don't think so..after all it is so quiet and peaceful, its hard not to sleep! (or maybe its just me)

Well, I should be hittin the hay now so I can fall out of my loft at quarter to 5, shower, and head to Menomonie with the crew for church! I am excited...its been like forever since I have attended a Sunday!

Until next time...keep warm!

Well look who it is!

Haha I know I have not written in this thing in quite sometime...I have neglected it and for that I am sorry.

Time just flys by when your having fun...or maybe its when your constantly doing school work..I forget which. :-) Actually I cannot complain..I pretty much love it here.

I must admit it definitely has taken some getting used to but now that I have my own room things are going much smoother.

So, school has been crazy..I have finals a week from Monday and then I go home for winter break! One semester under my belt and many more to go but now I am 16 semester hours closer to getting into the college of education sooo that's cool.

God has been always. Things were rough for awhile but he got me through everything and I am watching him work in my family's life and it is crazy and exciting.

I just got back from hanging out with Carrie and Sheena and it was a night much needed. We ended up going to Jeffersons to eat and the food was delicious. I had a taco salad that was the size of me or as Carrie would say the "size of Texas" and I dominated it. It hit the spot. I had a lot of fun and it was nice to just hang out with them..I think that is the first time we have just had a girls night out since I have been here. Crazy.

Anyway, I am off to bed so I can get up on time! (I have a problem with oversleeping lately) woops.

Good night!

<3 Caitlin

Quick update before I go to class.

Going to school here at Winona has truly been a blessing. I was talking with Mike about two weeks ago on the way to church and basically I think God put me here to bring me closer to him. God knew I needed to be surrounded by other Christians in order to continue growing and to maintain my focus on him. Everyday has been a learning experience and I'm the happiest I have ever been...Excluding the days when satans smacking me around. But even on those days God always shows me he is by my side and he provides me with the comfort and strength I need.

I always look forward to Thursdays because that means bible study..which I thoroughly enjoy because Ryan is funny and personable, I can always connect to what he is saying. And of course I get to see Carrie, Sheena and Miguel which is always great...I don't know where I would be without these people.

Classes are going pretty well...ignorning the few bumps in the road I encountered last week. College is taking a bit of time for me to get used to..some of the profs. are just a little out there and I don't agree with half the stuff they say but besides that it is all good. The roomie and I get along pretty well (just diff. sleeping scheds) but otherwise we are great.

Saturday is the first day of Fall and this excites me...fall is fab fab fabulous. But I will stop there because I could write a novel.

Alright it is about time for me to end this because I have math at 2.

Unitl next time,

go outside and enjoy the fallness.

Caitlin :)
