Lauren goes to school....

So, today was my first day of class! After nearly a year of working here at SEBTS and being mistaken for a student ("No, I just work there") I finally took the plunge and started classes.

Here I am on my way to class, complete with lunch, lunchbox and bag-o-goodies - packed lovingly for me by sweet Amanda.Did I mention today was my first day of GRAD SCHOOL?! How cheesy can I be? What's funny is that not only did Amanda make me a goody bag, but she drove me to school and dropped me off for my first day of classes. Thanks, "Mom!" I really do appreciate it; what a great friend!

You may now be wondering why I needed a ride to work/school....My car is in the shop, again. Hopefully, today is the last day for a looonngg while! I am getting the antifreeze/coolant leak fixed after it overheated a couple times recently. The good news? My warranty is going to cover it all. I'm glad it's coming in handy!

So, hurrah for starting a new chapter of life as a Master's student, hurrah for having a new goal of graduating, hurrah for goody bags, hurrah for funny professors, hurrah for learning from some (seemingly) intelligent men of God....Hurrah for God. Seriously. I am just amazed at what he's doing in my life!

Haha, wow I can't believe the goodie bag made it on the blog with a shout out to me. What's more funny about this is that at breakfast someone ...maybe Tyler was joking with me and called me "mom" and I said that you'd done the same thing about needing a ride to school and so I'd packed you a goodie bag of snacks. Then one of the guys that had come with Hannah started calling me mom to see if he could get a goodie bag. haha. I hope that you had a great first day of school!

Thanks to everyone for the comments :) Grad school has started out well, thanks to the goody bag, all the well-wishes, and God. I'll keep you all posted on new school supplies if I get some....
