Great day!

So today was just a GREAT day! :) First of all I got my hair cut! WOOHOO! It's not anything drastically different, but it's fun! I got a lot more layers put into it and I had bangs cut! My friend also cut her hair but it was a LOT more drastic... she cut probably about 2 feet off! WOOZAS! Also I got to "hang-out" with a REALLY nice guy tonight, and it was just fun! :) I LOVE GOOD DAYS!

I'm seriously at the point where I'm so tired that I'm having a very difficult time functioning. This semester has already proved to me that I'm pathetic! My classes aren't particularly difficult in any way, but they just take up SO much time! I was up until 2:30 this morning doing homework, and then I had to get up at 7 for my class this morning.
Not much esle is new... I'm trying really hard to have a social life, and so far it's working pretty good. Whenever I'm not in class or doing homework I'm usually out doing something with someone! So that's good! Keeping me semi sane at least! :) Any hints on time management between school, homework, church calling, and a social life let me know!!!!! :)

Sorry ya'll!

Hey! Sorry it's been a while since I've posted. My life is one crazy after another! I really feel like I should have a lot of down time, but it always seems to escape me somehow! I only have a week and a half left of this semester (WOOHOO), but then next semester might possibly kill me! Though I'm excited because betweent he two semesters I get to spend a week down in Arizona!!! Arizona will be nice, because although it's warm there (not was warm as it's going to be when I move down there in August mind you) anything would be great compared to the freak snowstorm we recieved on Sunday!
Not much esle is new here. I started donating plasma this past week and my arm is displaying a brilliant bruise to show it! But honsetly the little bit of money coming in from it is amazing! Well... off to watch devotional and then class! :)

Critters and Cute Things!

So as many of you know I'm teaching preschool this semester for one of my practicum classes! I'm not going to say that this class isn't hard, because it's SUPER hard... and takes a LOT of work! BUT... here's the up side... I get to make super cute props for my lessons. If I had a camera I would take pictures of them so that everyone could see, because honestly I'm super proud of my creations! But... I will tell you a little about some of them. This next week I'm doing a week on bugs. Well there are some REALLY cute things that you can make for a lesson on bugs when you're talking to 4 year olds! I'm currently working on ladybug finger puppets that the children can wear as we sing a song about ladybugs. They are really simple and may not sound cute, but they actually turned out really cute! You take red felt and cut out a circle with a little bump at the top for the head and then just take a balck permanant marker and color in the head and makes some dots. Than all I did was buy some little elastic from Wal-mart and hot glued it on the back in a loop that the kids can slip over their fingers! They are DANG CUTE! I really think their fun! I also make spiders out of pipe cleaners (and yes I know... spiders are arachnids NOT insects... Kiffer was kind enough to point that out to me... but I decided it's not going to ruin a 4 year olds life to think that a spider is an insect!) I also made a super cute butterfly puppet out of a glove and felt. Anyways... Just wanted to share! If anybody wants to teach 3-5 year olds about bugs I've got some fun ideas that I gathered up for my lessons! :)

The Glorious Cycle of Life!

This weekend I got to go to Utah to see my family! It was awesome because all 23 1/2 of us were there!!!! My sister Melani is a drama teacher at Lehi Junior High and they were putting on the show the Pirates of Penzance this weekend! I don't know if any of you have ever gone to a play put on by a middle school, but usually they are kinda cheesy and not done very well. But alas, when one of my sisters is put in charge of something (especially if it's theatrical or creative) it turns out to be AMAZING! So needless to say the show was great! The costumes were awesome, the set rocked, the chorography was really fun, and the singing was about a good as you're gonna get at a junior high!!! :)

After the show my whole family got together up on the stage and took family pictures. I was surprised that with 10 kids it was still fairly quick and painless! Good job kids, I'm not sure I would have been able to stand there for more than like a minute when I was younger!!!!

The rest of the weekend I spent with my friend Babetta (super fun!). I also got to meet up with my cousin Derek who I haven't seen in literally 4 or 5 years! It was great to see him! :)

Now here's for a good adventure story... which Michael didn't seem to happy about, but honestly, life's more fun with a little bit of mystery and adventure right?! So last night on the way home Michael asked me to drive. Great! I love driving... and I had a lot on my mind, and driving is a good time to just listen to great tunes and think! So I'm driving and thinking, and listening to AWESOME Indie music (I like lots of kinds of music, but yesterday was definitely and Indie day!), anyways, I'd been driving for a good hour and half or so and Michael wakes up. He's like "Dianna, where are we?" And I was like, "I don't know... on the I-15 on the way back to Rexburg..?" So he just sat there for a few minutes in confussion, and then he turned to me and was like "no, dianna, we're on Highway 86 on the way to Twin Falls!" OOPS!!!! hahaha... so we pulled off into this small little town called Snowville (it was right on the border so I don't know if it was ID or UT) and Michael went in and got directions to get back to the I-15 without having to go through Twin Falls (which would have added probably a good 2 hours!) So we start driving down this fun old country highway for like 30 minutes till we get back to the I-15. Honestly I thought it was super fun!!!!!! :) And we still made it home in 4 hours and 45 minutes. So I told Michael he wasn't allowed to complain about it! :)

Here's the sad thing that came from this weekend. My niece Emily had the flu or something on Thursday when I got there, and this morning I think I woke up with it. NO FUN! I always seem to pick up everything that's getting passed around! The hard part about it is that I'm supposed to teach preschool tomorrow morning for part of my grade, and if I have the flu I can't do it, and I'm really not sure how that's gonna work out. AH for school!

Ok... so updates from my last blog. Well only one update really... KIFFER IS HOME!!!! Woohoo!!! He got home from his mission in Texas on Thursday! I haven't talked to him on the phone yet, but I've talked to him a few times online, and he seems a little shell shocked still. But I guess what can you expect after living a totally different lifestyle for two years, and then coming home and having everything change! I'm glad he's back though! :)
