Spring Break

I'll just make a brief post now. There is possibly more following later.

The Grand Canyon was amazing. Tiring and stressful, but still good. I enjoyed that. I'd never quite realized how deep it was. Our schedule got changed because the first trail we went down was too dangerous so we had to turn back and do another. Because of that, we got to spend more time with my grandparents. I went shoping, of my own volition, surprise surprise! I really don't like shoping, but I wanted to that time. I liked the time with my grandma and Mom.

Spring Break went well. I'd been worring that it would be stressful, but it wasn't this year. The teachings were about wholeheartedness. Nothing specifically struck me, but all that Vinnie said seemed to back up things I'd recently been learning, and a couple things he said helped me clear up some things I'd been confused about. He's really good at teaching just basic truths in a way that anybody can understand, but also in a way that everybody benifits from hearing them and you don't feel like you've heard it before a thousand times.

Well, I gotta go to bed now, though I doubt I'll be asleep soon. Where I was in Mexico it was two hours behind us, so to me it feels like 6:48 instead of 8:48. . .Although I am slowly getting used to this time.

I hope you all have a blessed week!

Tonight, around 7 or 9, we (my family and I) leave for the Grand Canyon. All tonight and tomorrow we'll be driving there; it's a eighteen hour drive. On Sunday we'll hike down into the Grand Canyon with backpacks on. We'll spend four nights, five days there. On the fifth day, Thursday, we'll hike out and then drive a few hours over to where my grandparents are staying. We'll visit with them that evening, and the next Friday morning. Around noon, we'll drive to El Paso, Texas. About a nine hour drive.

Saturday morning Mom, Dad, Camila, and Daniel will all drive home. Peter and I will stay. We will be going on a mission trip to Juarez, Mexico. Just right over the border from El Paso. We'll be getting home from that late at night on Friday, the 21st.

Over all, I'm looking forward to these trips. I think I'll be ready to be home by the time they're over, (maybe not though, you never know!) but I think I'll be glad I went. Who knows what things God has in store. :)

One last thing.

Something I’ve been thinking about lately is how God created us for His glory, so shouldn’t we live our lives to glorify Him? As I don't really have time right now, I'll write more about the next time I post, which may be a long time from now.
