Hello and Happy Holidays!

Well hello to my family and friends! I am sitting at school waiting for the Christmas show to start so I decided that I should write a quick blog. I hope this finds you all well, healthy and surviving the season so far! Looking back on 2008, it has been such an extraordinary year. When I say extraordinary...I literally mean extra ordinary. It has had its ups, downs and in betweens, but as always, the Lord has been faithful, and has blessed me with more than I deserve. I am going to make a list of things that I have experienced this year. I encourage you to make your own list and thank God that He blessed you with those experiences (whether good or bad). I will try to go in some what of an order...maybe.

I rang in 2008 with Kendon and Leah at the top of the tallest building in Osaka, Japan!

I went to see Bon Jovi in Tokyo with Leah.

I gave a speech in Japanese at Graduation.

I got to talk to my Grandpa one last time.

My parents came over to visit me for 10 days!

I took a scooter road trip up the East coast of Japan with Matt.

I went to Daigo with Kendon, Matt and Kendon's parents.

I went strawberry picking on an organic strawberry farm.

I traveled to Thailand for summer holiday with Matt and Kendon

I survived Thailand. ha ha!

I climbed Mt. Fuji with Matt and Leah.

I went to the National Sumo Tournament with Leah and Catera.

I went to 2 undokai's...not as a newcomer!

I experienced Nikko in the fall with Matt and Catera...beautiful!

Matt Thomas and Lindsy Graham came over to visit.

Thanksgiving feast at church.

Well, I think that about sums it up. Yes, there were many more things in between these things, but that is what my blogs are for! ha ha! I'm sure I will finish this and go...Oh shoot! I forgot that and that and that! However, this for now is the list. I would like to say a quick I love you and miss you to my family especially. You have stood by me in my experience here and I thank you for that. I thank you for your prayers and love and support. I can't express how much it means to me to have you as my family. I can't wait to see you all when I return home!

Love to all! Happy Holidays!

Sayonara for now!
