We had a wonderful vacation at the cabin. Bob and Casey joined us on Saturday, and left on Monday. Dad came on Saturday too, but left on Tuesday. On Sunday we went to Peterson for pizza and at night enjoyed a fire built by Bill and Bob the greats with a little "advice" by my dad. Monday we all enjoyed some time in Petoskey. We played a round of miniature golf at Pirates Cove, and enjoyed B.C. Pizza's family favorite bread sticks. Bob and Casey had to head back for the hockey game in Kalamazoo, while Dad, Bill and I enjoyed "Cars" the movie. We returned to the cabin and enjoyed a beautiful sunset and rented a movie. Dad left on Tuesday and Bill and I continued our relaxing week. We ventured to Petoskey for the day, rented movies, played games and just enjoyed time together.

On Friday, July 7 Bill and I celebrated our 5 year dating anniversary. I can't believe that we have been together for so long. We went to the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean" part 2. We had a wonderful time. I went to an all day testing on Saturday for my Teacher Certification. I feel that I did well, but I just hope and pray that my results will reflect that. I should get my results sometime in August.

Tonight will be the last night of Vacation Bible School. I have really enjoyed working with the children and seeing them learn and get excited about God. I have enjoyed working in the bible story area, becasue I got the chance to talk to all of the children and see the differences between ages.

We finish packing tonight and we get to leave for vacation tomorrow morning. I can't wait to be back to Bill and my special place. The cabin has so many wonderful memories, and more new memories waiting to happen. I'm somewhat nervous about getting everything done. (I have to work tonight and have VBS too). I know that I will get through it all.

Bill has been verry busy this week. He worked late, and also had a trip to Chicago this week along with training new staff. I'm really looking forward to spending time just the two of us, but I'm also excited to spend time with our family too.

Yesterday Bill and I celebrated my 23rd birthday with dinner at Logans. We had a bunch of fun and enjoyed spending some much needed time together.
Today I was notified by field placement office at WMU that my fall internship was changed. I was originally in Kalamazoo Public Schools at Milwood Elementary in a kindergarten classroom. Now I will be at Green Meadows Elementary School in Comstock Public Schools in a second grade classroom. I'm excited, I've had experience in a second grade class before and look forward to being in the same grade again.
Saturday will mark one week until we leave for the cabin up north. I can't wait! I'm excited to get away but also to show my dad the place that I have fallen in love with. Unless you have been to the cabin, its hard to understand what I mean. All I can say is, you can see God. Just sitting on the beach watching the water, a sunset, or a bird fly by, it is so beautiful. I'm getting all dreamy just thinking about it....
