Homework? Nahh...

While Cole has been a good boy for the past hour and a half reading some chapters from Acts for his New Testament class, I've been on National Geographic looking at their awesome photo collections. I got stuck on the animal one for a while, and thought you might enjoy some of the ones I came across. Some are pretty funny. Some are really cute. And others are just awesome!

I may or may not have been a bit of a distraction to Cole while I was browsing...

Isn't this so adorable?!
Who knew tigers could dive?


So majestic...

What are the chances of this happening?! So funny!

Crazy gecko eye!

Makes me reminisce about Swamp People.

I love how the one in the background is just hangin' out while this is goin on. Haha!

Black sheep?

This is one Cole's favorite. We got a pretty good kick out of it. Haha! :)

This one is my favorite!

This one is of a dragonfly holding on to a limb during a rainstorm - such a good quality photo!

Or maybe this one is my favorite... :)

I think these lions are beautiful.

Which one do you like the most?

I feel good about life right now.

So this semester I'm enrolled in 16 credits, and working 20 hours a week, but I'm not worried at all. Weird! It feels a little weird that I'm not stressing out about it, but I know that I'm doing what is right therefore I am receiving comfort - what a blessing. :)

A few things I'm really happy about right now:
1. I got to talk to two of my really good girlfriends today while I was on campus. Emily and Kaylie - you're both wonderful girls who I love and admire!

2. I am a TA for a public health class this semester and I'm super excited for what I am going to glean from this experience. The professor I'm working for is so great at what he does and I look forward to working with him and getting to know him on a more personal level.

3. I am in an International health class this semester, and even though I've only been once (today) I know that I am going to love the material that we are going to go over, and I hope that someday I am able to work around the globe helping people help themselves through health education. 

4. Once upon a time I was all about going to graduate school and getting my Master's in public health, but then I changed my mind. I think I may have changed my mind again! I'm going to miss learning more about the field of public health, so why not do another year or so about it and get another degree, right? I mean I learned in my International health class today that children who are born to an educated mother are more likely to live. That's some motivation! Obviously that was more in context of developing countries, but hey...I can say it applies to me as well!
