So I haven't done any real "updating" blogging in a while so here goes:

Graduation things are coming together: we've got invitations coming in. They look like this ---------->

This Friday, Mrs. Axelson will be taking my senior pictures along with Kiana and Cassia, who are graduating this year.
Allyson is sitting next to me brainstorming ideas for the reception after the graduation and scrapbooking. She likes planning and she comes up with some creative ideas!

March madness has been very entertaining. I was rooting for both Memphis and Texas in the Sweet Sixteen, momentaily forgetting if they both won, they would have to play each other! Happily, they both won! Unfortunantly, I had to choose between the "home team" : Texas or my Dad's favorite and my Mom's alma mater: Memphis. Well Memphis won out quite easily, I've been a fan of theirs for several years and there are personal ties. So today I proudly wore my Memphis basketball jersey as Texas was soundly beat by the Memphis Tigers!

On another note, Allyson's favorite team(I admit, I had a soft spot for them too!) and Tournament Cinderella story, Davidson, narrowly lost to Kansas. It's been a great tournament and it contunially is a testament to the fact that NCAA basketball is much more exciting than NBA!

Chris has been cooking around here. He really into finding new things to cook and bake! Last month he made a Peanut Butter Cheesecake. It was fabulous! It tasted like something from The Cheesecake Factory! For the Superbowl he made a wonderful beef stew and a couple of weeks ago, baked some pork chops. He's become quite a chef! For dinner today he made roasted chicken, mint and onion peas, and roasted potatoe wedges. Ah, it was good! Great Job, Chris!

School and work are going well. English homework is kinda heavy, but all our smaller assignments will culminate in to a big portfolio/research paper at the end of the semester. Only 5 weeks 'til Finals!!! YAAY!

I'm loving my job. It's so wonderful to work with kids. Every work day brings some interesting happenings and its so rewarding to see kids learn! My co-worker are awesome and they make any rough days, smooth. I look forward to one day having kids of my own to teach!

Well there's always some kind of homework assignment due, so I better hop to it and go find out what's coming up for the week!

Christ is the Great Light of the World! He has opened our eyes and given us new life! Hallelujah!

Love, Adrienne Renea

Happy Easter!

Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God.
-Romans 6:8-10

Ah, Friday!

It's been a pretty slow week here. Chris and I are on Spring Break from the college. Nevertheless, there is plenty to do at home!
I have several assignments due in English next week, so I've been working on them. In the next few weeks I'll be getting mid-term grades, so I am anxiously awaiting those!
Graduation is coming up fast, so I've been looking at things pertaining to that. I've decided on invitations and I'm working towards starting a scrapbook. I'll be taking senior pictures in the next couple of weeks.
My graduation ceremony is May 17, I'll be graduating with a home school group. I'm not sure about the exact number of graduates, but it won't be more than 10-15. So it'll be nice and small and SHORT! I enjoy the smaller graduations, they are a lot more personal.

This weekend I'm going shopping, trying to find some things for graduation and maybe some summer clothes? It was HOT today!! The high was 80! That's pretty warm considering I was wearing a jacket and sweater last weekend.

I'm so glad its Friday, even if it does bring me close to the beginning of another week. I like school, but I'm particularly anxious for finals to come and graduation!
Tonight I went out to dinner with a bunch of friends. It was great catching up with people I haven't seen forever. I love those girls!
This year is so different, people I saw all the time last year, I never see! Instead I'm out of the house more and come in contact with so many different people. Mostly, very different from friends and adults I grew up around. I'm learning a lot. My relationship with God has grown, I have had to hold His Hand tighter. Being around non-Christians wasn't something I did much when I was younger. Now, I'm always seeking God's will on how I may be light to those who are walking this earth without the knowledge of Jesus Christ. I'm am continually reminded of the grace of God in my life! How precious the Cross is to me!

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride

See from his head, his hands, his feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown

O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near and bless
Your name

Love always,
Adrienne Renea

Worship Concert

On Saturday, Allyson, my friend Sarah and I went to see Phil Wickham in Concert at a church near my house. We're fans of his acoustic worship music and gospel-centered lyrics. The concert was less "concert" but more a time of worship. It was wonderful! Phil Wickham is a very gifted worship leader. We look forward to seeing him again, the next time he is in town!

New Gadget!

Graduation is a little over two months away, but I got a present a little earlier!

My parents bought me a Dell Inspiron 1525 for my graduation present! It's awesome!

The kiddos checkin' it out:

Its a very nice computer, I love all the fun, new functions of Windows Vista!

Thank you, Mom and Dad!
