My 4th Missouri Apartment & the Campus

Here's a tour of the house: Front Door

Living Room


Dining Room


Study Corner & Bathroom

Here's one of the lake--it was frozen solid for over a week!

This is my childcare room where I work

The wash house for doing laundry

The fourplex my apartment is in

It was COLD when I got here! 0* Fahrenheit the first morning!

Mexico to Missouri

This is the Rio Grande. Despite driving to Mexico a few times, this is the first time I saw it.

I got to see my brother when I was in Louisiana. He's living there now because he's finished with the Navy.

I was able to get a new-to-me car when I got back to NC. I love it, and the drive to Missouri was great!

There was a lot of snow my first day driving. I drove from NC to Missouri during the "Coldest Week in 25 Years".

This is the beautiful view in front of the Baers' house. I was able to catch up with them for a few days, and due to weather got some extra time in!

My car was ready for the drive--we didn't want to have to clean it (or de-ice it!) early the next morning.

Day 2 of driving had some challenges, because of the salted roads & frozen wiper fluid. But the up side was that I got Taco Bell for the first time in over a year!

And I reached Missouri safely--here is the St. Louis Arch.

Home Again

I made it safely into Missouri this evening. Thanks for all your prayers--I sure needed them! I'm getting moved into my new apartment, and will put up new pictures & road trip pictures after I've slept a little! :-)

Road Trip #...?

Over the next few days I'll be traveling to Missouri. I appreciate your prayers as I'll be driving. I'll post pictures and better updates when I get to Missouri! :-)
