My Best Friend the Missionary


Today Jenna entered the MTC. I am so proud of her, but I am going to miss her so much. It's just crazy to think that I have NO idea where I am going to be in 18 months when she finally comes back. Maybe I won't even be living in Utah? Maybe I will have a baby?!?! WHO KNOWS where life is going to take me... but I do find comfort knowing that no matter where I am or what I am doing, I will always have my Jenna. She is my "twin soul" and I've never known anyone to be so Christ like as Jenna. She is completely selfless, would never utter a rude word about ANYONE, has the strongest testimony, is completely dedicated to this gospel (like waking up two hours early just to read her scriptures and going to the temple MULTIPLE times a week). I have always had this joke that "I'm trying to be like Jenna" but it really is the truth. It is a great goal to strive for! She is going to be the most amazing missionary. She is so happy and so friendly and when she bears her testimony she brings everyone to tears! I am SO lucky to have her in my life, and it really is going to be so hard not being able to talk to her every day but hopefully these next 18 months will fly by :)

Best friends! This was before we had to say bye...



Good luck Sister Christensen!!!

So Dang Excited!

This weekend I found out that I am going to be a second grade teacher for the rest of the semester at Deerfield Elementary. I couldn't be happier! I think second grade is the perfect age because they are still so cute and innocent, but they also know how to read and write and you can do SO much with them! Eeeek! October 18th cannot come soon enough!


I really hope I can actually APPLY everything I have been learning at BYU and really be the teacher I dream of being......



HAHAHA! The big joke with the other girls in my class is that I'm Miss Honey from Matilda. I take that as a HUGE compliment :)

Wish me luck!

So I Had a Little Breakdown...

I don't know why I'm such a wimp... but Friday sorta put me over the edge! Here's how my day went:

5 am-Wake Up
5:20-Leave for bus
5:35-Bus leaves for Provo
6:40-Get to Provo
7:00-Work
9:00-Class
1:20-Class is FINALLY over
1:50-Work
7:00-Work FINALLY over
7:25-Bus leaves for Sandy
9:00 pm-FINALLY GET HOME!

So I had a 15 hour day of going NON-STOP, got home, and just started bawling. I don't know what my deal is, but I don't know how doctors have like 18 hour shifts and stuff. I could NOT handle it that's for sure.

The funny thing is, I realize that the problem of my long day wasn't the fact that I woke up so early, or worked so hard, but it was not seeing/talking to Landon ALL day that completely drained me. Because AS SOON as he saw I was crying he gave me a huge hug and kiss and suddenly I was all bright and happy.

It's crazy how much this kid cheers me right up and makes a long, hard, emotionally draining day suddenly PERFECT. I don't know what I'd do without him :)




P.S. Isn't he cute? :)
