I woke up fresh and ready to go this morning which was amazing because I only got 5 hours of sleep, actually less than that, but I was ready to take on the world! My entire morning went well, it was really nice, and I wish that every morning went that way! I read a really good verse in my devotions this morning, one that I had never noticed before: Isaiah 25:4, "For though hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall." What a comforting thought, how good it is to know that God is there for us in our hardest times. It made me think of this picture:

Christian Home was my first class for the day. A pastor from Maine brought 4 of his high school kids last night to check out the college, so they were in class with me, and also later in the day.
I spent my free period outside taking pictures of tulips and other flowers. With the early morning sun I got some gorgeous pictures, including an AMAZING picture of a daffodil, one of my best pictures ever!

*****Amazing Daffodil*****

Chapel was good, I guess. I really don't remember much about it, guess my mind was still outside!
In Christian Womanhood we had the 2 girls from Maine join us. For some reason the room that class is in is the HOTTEST classroom in the entire building, I'm not really sure why, but that is the way it is, but today it was FREEZING cold!! So cold, that Mrs. Donaghue had one of the girls that works in the kitchen run down there and make hot water and hot chocolate for the class!! BRRR!!! I got my test back that we took on Tuesday, I got a 92% which is a B+, I wasn't too disappointed with that cuz I thought I had missed more than I actually did! :)
Intro to Missions was just plain old interesting, I really don't wanna even go into it! UGH!
After that class I was going past the office on my way outside when the secretary's husband, who was standing at her window talking to her yelled, "Hannah stop! You have a package!" I remembered that last night Mom had told me on the phone to be watching for UPS today. I had seen the truck come during one of my classes, but had completely forgotten. I was expecting a box of food or something, special, but not unique. To my shock and amazement there was a box from Pro-Flowers for me! My parents had ordered me tulips!! How sweet is that?? I cried! I was SOOOO excited! They are soooooo pretty!

*****MY TULIPS!! not a very good picture, it was taken on my phone, I will get a better one tomorrow.*****

After Intro to Missions I once again went outside and took pictures of a friend of mine. They turned out really nice! :)
I came back to my room and got some homework done before I went on a walk with Mrs. Phillips soon after 1:00 this afternoon. We walked for about an hour before I started climbing what I think are cherry trees and taking pictures! Oh my word! It was soooo much fun!! Mrs. Phillips took a picture of me taking pictures! :) It was actually a pretty neat shot!

*****New buds!!*****

*****Mrs. Phillips pointing out some especially beautiful blossoms*****

*****Back to tulips....they had opened and were GORGEOUS*****

I got quite a bit of homework done and did a little bit of job hunting this afternoon. I found out that the grocery store that I had had to fill out an application for 2 times isn't hiring....frustrating!
Church was tonight. It went well. Nothing too exciting.....

The cherry blossoms look lovely! I really like the second picture of the yellow tulip, too, and the one from Yosemite.
