Here is my list that I made on my last Summer Hopes and Plans Post.
1. Teach Macy some new tricks
2. Connect with old friends
3. Loose 6 lbs.
4. Make a prayer Journal
5. Read the 4 books on my list
6. Visit Alabama
7. Go to a Charleston Battery soccer game
8. Have a 4th of July Party
9. Go to the beach
Good thing I made this a whole summer list instead of a weekly list because I'm not doing so well! I have worked on 2,4,5 and 8 so far and here are my results.
#2: Connect with old friends.
This is an ongoing process, but I am making some improvements on my communication skills! I found out that I can imessage my friends with iphones that live in different countries! Now I can text them rather than figure out Skype times through multiple time zones and schedules. This is helping tremendously! I made a list of people that I miss and want to contact. I am about 3/4 of the way done!
#4: Make a Prayer Journal
I did it and I love it! I got the idea from Alissa and I can't wait to start using it. Essentially it is a binder divided into sections based on things in your life that you want to pray for. I had 6 categories: Prayer Requests, Answered Prayers, Abby and Cole (Siblings), Dom, My Students, and India/Israel. Here are some pictures.
#8: Have a 4th of July Party
We did have a party but it ended up being a 5th of July party! Dom and I went with some friends up to the lake and cooked out, swam, and hung out on the pier. We didn't have the greatest weather and had a slightly scary experience with the house that was on the property, but we had a good time. Here are the deserts that I made for the party and below are some pictures our friends Hannah took of the lake and us girls (post lake time which is why we look exhausted and gross!).
