Resting in Bakersfield before the big trip!

Sorry for not posting sooner. :( I am now in Bakersfield, CA, staying with my grandparents for almost three weeks, and then I will be returning to Papua New Guinea on July 13th. While I'm here, I need to fill out college applications, practice flute, buy a fancy dress, run, and spend time with my family. Please pray that I would be faithful to do everything and that I would do it well. I have already gone shopping since I've been here, as well as swimming at my aunt and uncle's house. This is supposed to be my summer vacation, but there are so many things to do that it's not really a vacation, just time off from school! The time my family spent in Irvine was more of a vacation, but we went out to eat every day with my parents' friends, and that got to be annoying. The house that we stayed in was beautiful, though. I especially loved the garden in the backyard. It was so pretty!

Anyways, here in Bakersfield, I love the walks that I go on with some or all of the family every night. I'm also enjoying the heat and the ever-present sunshine. So far, my stay has been great, and I hope the rest of it goes well. :)


  1. You are a runner?!? No wonder you have such a lovely figure!!! How do you run in the torturous heat of Bakersfield?!?

  2. Yes, but I haven't been in track since tenth grade. I'm going to be in track next year, though. I was hoping to run in the mornings before it gets too hot, but I haven't been waking up early enough. I'm going to try to get to bed earlier, but it's been hard lately, especially because it's summer and I like to stay up late during school breaks. :(
