{last sunday in rexburg for four months}

(one of the zillions of reasons I am thankful I chose BYU-Idaho instead of BYU-Provo)

The last week of school in the 'Burg is always bittersweet.

But this semester has been the best one ever. Ever! And I do believe that that's going to make it all the more difficult to leave. I know I'm going to the right place. It's just hard when I have been given the best roommates ever, the best ward ever, the best classes and professors ever, the best job ever, and the best view from my bedroom window.

It's funny how much you notice things like that when you choose to. I've had some difficult semesters, but I feel like this one hasn't been as hard. I thought at the beginning that it would be really exhausting having early morning classes every day and a job and everything else in between.

Then I started having early-morning scripture study...

And everything changed!

I'm so grateful for this past semester and everything I've learned. I think I've become a better person because of it, and I know that it's all thanks to my Heavenly Father, who has given me so much to be thankful for.

I can't wait to be back here in 4 months!

...until then!

You kids...

So glad we get you home soon, even if for only a couple of weeks.

The Asian contingent is especially excited.

Have an amazing last week in the Burg.
