A qick trip to Chicago!

My time in the States was great! My brothers, my mom and I flew in to Chicago on Wednesday and stayed at the JV house (the Geneva house) while we were in the U.S. Then, Thursday evening, we went to the JV vision night! It was so cool!!! My Dad and all the other people who came up front did a great job. If I weren't already a missionary kid, I'd totally want to come out here. God is working in powerful ways in Eastern Europe!

Friday, was our SHOPPING day! We went to Old Navy, TJ Max, JC Penney's etc. My favorite things I got that day is a really nice blue coat at Old Navy, some pink Converse shoes (Tyler's idea! Thanks Tyler!) and a pretty scarf. It's so much fun shopping in the States, there are so many stores to choose from! :)

Saturday, was our family day. We drove downtown Chicago to the Museum of Science and Industry and were there for a while. We got to see how a whole bunch of things work, we saw some of the first airplanes built, a mini fairy castle and beautiful Christmas decorations in the main hall! Our family really enjoyed each other's company since we hadn't been all together in 4 weeks!

Sunday, we went to Grace church and did more shopping, and then Monday, we left! So it was a VERY short trip! But I am SO glad that I could go, and I feel very blessed! Thanks God, I had a WONDERFUL trip!

Highlights of the fall, and things yet to come!

Here are some of the highlights of this fall so far, and some things yet to come.

-I had my birthday, which was really fun!

-This fall the leaves have been absolutely beautiful, the colors have just been brilliant!

-A rock band called Dizmas came to play music and do concerts for the Exit tour. They are leaving back for the States on Friday. We saw them quite often during these past eight weeks they have been here, so we really got to know them!

-School has been pretty hard in ninth grade, since this is our last year of primary school. If we want to get into a good high school, we have to get a good grade point average, so we have to work really hard!

Things that are coming up:

-We are flying to the States this Wednesday to see the JV Capital Campaign. We get to see my Dad talk about JV, and experience all the work he's put into this! I'm really excited!

-Thanksgiving JV conference happens late November. It'll be so fun to be with my JV family!
