The summer heat is starting to take a tole on our little flower garden, but I've managed to save a few buds here and there by bringing them inside for my own enjoyment. The summer is flying by- I can't believe tomorrow is July (and Logan's birthday!). Working full time and taking a class really makes the weeks go quickly. 
My backpack for next year arrived in the mail yesterday! My friend Rachel, who's going abroad also, ordered one too so we are going to be backpackin' it up! It has a ton of storage space and will be easier to tote around than a rolling suitcase. Hopefully we can also get some hiking and camping in.

Today we went to the Kauffman Gardens with the family after church. I haven't been able to see Megan all week since she was off work so it was fun to get together and enjoy the lovely flowers. 

It's been a very busy last couple of weeks. I've been working full time, taking a class two nights a week, and working on my student visa. Plus for work I've been having to take extra classes for us to stay certified. Last week it was one four hour course of CPR/First Aid. Next week it's Head Trauma and the next week is SIDS. Not a lot of fun to learn about but it definitely makes me feel safer with the kiddos. 

Monday and Thursday nights my dad and I take a three-hour ground school course.

It would be fun to take a few actual lessons in a plane though. After 40 hours and a couple of tests, you can technically receive your private pilot's license. 

Needless to say, the last 6 weeks have really flown by. I can't believe I've already been home from school a month and a half. I actually miss UC quite a lot, not just because of my friends and Mikey, but because I just love taking classes and learning new things. Still, I'm so glad it's summer and I can have a break from sch
