We leave tomorrow afternoon - I'm excited, though the last "tour" I went on wasn't that great, so I'm hoping this trip will exceed my expectations. I'll be missing three of my Spanish classes and one worldview, so I would appreciate prayers that I'd be able to get some school done while I'm on the trip. And then that when I come back I can just get right back into the school routine. You can also pray that Mom, Jessica and I will be a blessing to my Grandma. I love you all and I promise to take lots of pictures!!! :)

Here's several quotes I wanted to leave you with:

"Come, let's have one other gaudy night. Call to me. All my sad captains. Fill our bowlsonce more. Let's mock the midnight bell." -William Shakespeare

"The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time." -Abraham Lincoln

"My only fear is that I may live too long. This would be a subject of dread to me." -Thomas Jefferson

"He was a wise man who invented beer." -Plato

"Gain from your opponents without sacrificing your own strength." -Japanese Proverb

"It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it." -Eleanor Roosevelt
