Well today is Thanksgiving and this whole week I have been thinking about things that I am grateful for. Of course I am thankful for the huge blessings in my life such as an amazing family, wonderful friends, a warm house, food to eat and so many more things...

So I am sitting in Megan's bed after church and we have been stalking peoples blogs all day. This got me thinking... I haven't written on my blog for a year and I think it is time I start up again. So I posted some pictures of Chile below and I will try and fill you in on the past year. Nothing too crazy has happened, just the usual school, work, traveling, boys. I have met some great friends that I know I will be friends with forever. Here are some pictures that have great memories attached to them, mostly of this summer.
International Day. I love these boys more than they know.

That is all I have right now. But I will post more later on. My life is pretty boring but I am going to give this blogging thing a try.
So this summer I had the opportunity to go to vina del mar, Chile and study spanish. It was an amazing experience and such a beautiful place. I am so grateful I was able to live there for a short 6 weeks. Here are some pictures from my adventures...
