Finally, after a few agonizing weeks of stress and frustration, I have gotten the kinks worked out of my registration at the University of Houston. I transfered from "the Lonestar college system" better known as Tomball college, after working on my degree in Human Services. I transfered to U of H to pursue a bachelor's in human development and family studies with a specialization and certification. It shouldn't be so difficult, the only issue is that I am receiving my MGIBill and still taking classes at Tomball. That makes things a little bit tougher! I got everything (I think) worked out, and feel less stressed!
I am also happy I updated the dry-erase calendar on the fridge- and now I can fit the first day of school on it!!!!! YEAH! Not that I don't like hanging out with the kids all day, but when we are all in school and what not, it feels like time is moving. Also, I REALLY love the fall and winter months! The holidays will be here before we know it...that is what really makes me excited! Austin says he's ready to go back to school anyways. Good for him. Other than that time is just passing by!

Okay, so I've been doing this new study called "The Truth Project"...it really gets you thinking! Of course, like every kid in America, I was taught that evolution really happened, there are no holes in the theory... Christians are just crazy!! I, before doing this study, have wondered if it were possible for both to be true: God created the world and set the formation of humans in motion...which is where we got the idea of evolution. I still don't have a definite answer...but I do have lots of questions. The biggest question I have is: After seeing the complexity of the JUST a blood clot...the many functions that occur just to stop the bleeding of a simple paper cut- how did a blood clot evolve without the cell dying first? I also remember being taught that the fossil record was watertight...why weren't we taught the specifics? Is it because there is no SOLID proof...no connection between fossils and the evolution of species...just a theory, simple speculation?? Once one gets down to the cellular level and sees the process of DNA replication and such, how can you deny that their is intellegent design??? We just happened to pop out of magical goo I guess, and why did we "evolve" male and female? If we all evolved... how come humans haven't evloved really for a few thousand years? When I try to form a mental picture of evolution, it just doesn't make sense! And if you think about before evolution...the cosmos, where did they come from? Two possibilities: 1) There was nothing and then there was something or 2)the cosmos have always been -These options leave me with more questions....If there was nothing and then something...I guess it went a little like this...nothing...nothing...nothing...POP, EVERYTHING! Or If it always was, where did it come from? The more I learn about science and all of the "theories", the more it points to intellegent design. After all of this I am left with Jesus is the way, the truth, the light and none can come to Father but through him...

So, I started this new fancy blog page to keep everyone updated on what's going on- and I never sent it out to anyone! So, here goes...Nothing new is really going on! We took our trip to Disney World at the beginning of June (7-14) and had a great time. It was a little hot for my liking, but welcome to the south. I started my third summer class today and am already ready to be done! Mark has been selling his little heart out at work, yeah! Austin and Abi have been hanging out with me, but we haven't done too much. While at Disney, we watched a nifty video about the benefits of recycling...so, since we have been home, we have been recycling. Wouldn't you know it...we live in Houston, Texas- 4th largest city in the US and there is only ONE recycling center!!! HOW EMBARRASSING!!!! The kids also spent a week with Grammy and Papa, where they spent almost the entire time swimming! I didn't know what to do with my self, I think I mostly caught up on sleep. Mark and I also went on a date every night! I'm anxious for the school year to start again, by then I should have all the kinks in my school stuff worked out. That's pretty much all that has been going on with us.
