Hello, friends! Can you believe another month has gone by? 2014 is already a third of the way over, and I’m still not used to writing “2014” when I write the date. It’s crazy! This year is going by so quickly, and April was no exception. It’s been a good month. Here’s what I’ve been up to.

First of all, I saw a lot of movies in April, all in the same week. I saw Divergent on $5 movie day, which as fun. I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier when it premiered. Seeing it at 8:00 on a Thursday night wasn’t quite the same as a midnight premiere, but it was still a really good movie. Merge saw Noah together. And I went with groundZERO to see God’s Not Dead and wrote up a nice little review of what I thought about it. Overall, April was a good month for movies, and I saw a lot of them.

I celebrated Easter by dying eggs with Aiden, which he really enjoyed. He was upset when we ran out of eggs to dye. On Easter morning, I led children’s services at Ozark Free Will Baptist. It was a lot of fun. We had 30 kids in service, and they were all very good. We sang and talked about Jesus. I may or may not have given out a ton of candy. I just really love working with kids.

Last weekend was Arkansas Free Will Baptist State competition, and I was asked to judge Memorization. It was cool seeing all the kids use their talents for the Lord. I loved competing when I was kid, and it’s nice to still be a part of the whole process now. I was really proud of everyone involved.

Of course, I spent a lot of time with Aiden this month. This past Sunday, we celebrated his birthday by taking him to Chuck E. Cheese’s. He had a blast. We played every game in that place involving a ball, and he left with a huge new ball to play with. I’m really glad I got to be there to celebrate his second birthday. I can’t believe how old he’s getting!

I’m almost completely done with my thesis now. I submitted my final version and did a presentation on it this month. Now all that’s left to do is defend it next week, and then I’ll be finished with it forever.

Those are the big things that happened this month. It was a good one! May is going to be exciting with finals, graduation, and moving back home. I’ll be back in about to let you all know how it went. Thank you guys for reading and playing a part in this wonderful journey. I hope all is well with you, and I’ll talk to you soon!
