I love my new lens but I haven't had a lot of time to play around with it yet. These are a few of the pictures from the past couple of days.

Some days I look at my schedule and have no idea how I'm going to fit everything in. For example, this is what my week looks like:
Today/Thursday: special needs lab 9:45-11:45, study for test, do homework, government class 4:30-6, adult/child interaction class 6:15-9:15, spend the night at Jen's and watch Grey's and Private Practice
Friday: watch Maren 7:30-5 and Lila 9:45-1, watch Elias and Gabe 6ish-?
Saturday: watch Lila 11-3, watch Luke 5:30-?
Sunday: church 9-10:30, chicago for the day with Debi
Monday: Maren 7:30-5 (maybe Lila too), class 6:15-9:15
Tuesday: infant room lab 7:30-9:30, infant/toddler dev class 11:30-2:45, government class 4:30-6, watch Lila 6:45-?
Wednesday: Maren 7:30-5, MRI at 8:15pm, out with friends at 9
Thursday: special needs lab 9:45-11:45, government 4:30-6, adult/child interaction 6:15-9:15, spend the night at Jens to watch Greys and Private Practice

repeat again the next week....and the next...and the next. only changing a few things here and there. it's busy! add in car troubles, hanging out with friends, getting hw done, etc and there is not much time left in the day!

lens cap from china

i ordered a lens cap off of ebay this weekend for 26 cents. i thought it was a good deal :) this is the email i got from the guy who was selling the lens cap:
hi jessica,
thanks for your shopping here, and i have dispatch
ed the item. i hope you will like the item you buy here.
i am a chinese student and have great fun to open an online store on ebay.and i have saw the movie "You've Got Mail" there is a book store called :the shop around the corner in the movie owned by Catherine .so i named it my store.
jessica is a great name ,and when i saw your name i think of tom hanks' another movie "sleepless in seattle" there is a girl also named JESSICA as you !
thank you for your shopping here and leave a positive feed back for me !
best wishes
sincerely yours

i also bought a 50mm lens that i am really excited to get. all of the photographers i know rave about it and the one i bought is practically brand new and half the price it would have been in the store.

Update on CK and kids

I had mentioned here that Cheri Kay and her kids were nearing the end of the adoption process and all they were waiting on is a visa. Well they have a visa appointment for THIS Thursday morning! Please join in praying that the visas are approved. This is the last step and CK can bring those kids home!!!
