So yesterday was my birthday and Joseph and I went to Disneyland. It was crowded of course but it was a lot of fun. We went on a couple of rides and we went to the Mission Tortilla Factory and got my free Birthday Tortillas and they were awesome! While there I had my Disneyland Birthday Pin on and tons of people wished me a happy birthday. That was fun! Later on that day a couple of our friends came and join our little group. For dinner my in-laws had my parents and Erin over and we had a little BBQ. Then today my parents had the big family BBQ at my grandpa's house. But overall it was a great birthday. I got a lot of new toys like a bluetooth speaker for my car since in California we have a new Hands Free law which means that people can no longer be holding the cell phones while driving which is pretty inconvient but it is definitely safer. My parents got my a Wii Fit which I love to play. Erin got me a hard case cover for my ipod touch so now when I drop it it will be safer. My sister-in-law, Kimberly gave me an audio version of Twilight which I now can listen to while driving and I am currently using it to spead the Twilight love to Erin and my other cousins. Hahaha I am totally addicted to it. And then everyone else gave me money which is always good. Sio that was my birthday weekend. The end.

So I got into Chapman University for Grad School. Of course they took their time accepting me but I was finally accepted the Friday before school started. So this week has been my first week at Chapman and I feel like a freshmen! This is a new campus for me and I have no clue where anything is! There was no orientation so I have had to figure out how to get everything like a student I.D. and a parking permit. It is a whole new experience. But I have survived my first week of Grad School! YAY! Oh in case you didn't know I am going to Grad school for my Mulitple-Subject teaching credential and for my Masters in Education with an emphasis in Reading Education. So hopefully when I am done with this I will be teaching and I can also be a Reading Specialist.

So I had this week off of work and I have been really bored. So I decided that I would read Twilight since I have been wanting to read it for a while. So I started it on Tuesday and I finished it that night. It was so captivating. I could not put it down! Then I moved on to the next book, New Moon. That night I went to bed sobing! Joseph got worried and thought I was hurt until I told him about the book. So since I was sobbing I definitely could not get to sleep so I went to keep reading until like 3am when I got to the part where Edward returned! The next two books I read really fast. This series is AWESOME! I love the love story in this book between Edward and Bella! When the movie comes out you can expect me seeing it at midnight and having a "TEAM EDWARD" shirt on. If you have read this series then we will definitely have to discuss it! I'm dieing right now just thinking about it. I can't wait to talk to my cowork (who have read all of them) about it. And now I think I am going to read Twilight again since that was my absolutely favor book out of the saga.

So this last weekend Jesse (Joseph's older brother) and his wife Heather came for the weekend from Provo. On Thursday they went to Disneyland for the day. Joseph and his dad went in the morning with them and then later Joseph and I met up with them again. By the time I got there they were about ready to leave so we just quickly went on Space Mountain before we left.
On Friday they went to the Getty Villa while I was at work. Then on Saturday they decided that they wanted to go and make s'mores at the beach. So Joseph and I assumed that we would go in the morning because everyone knows that if you want a beach pit on a Saturday during the summer you have to go at like 7am. But Jesse and Heather did not wanted to go early so we went in the late afternoon to try and get one (which we knew we wouldn't). Suprise surprise! we did not get one. So we stayed for two hours and then decided to make our own s'mores in the BBQ at home. And of course our s'mores rocked at home because we could make them outside and then go inside and eat them while watching the Olympics. You can't do that at the beach! HA!
The last picture is of two of the older Korean girls Seojin (on the left) and Cindy (on the right). These girls were so cute! Seojin asked for my email address and then the very next night she started emailing me. She is too adorable. In her email she asked if I remembered who she was and I was thinking, "Of course silly! You only left yesterday!" Her emails are so sweet and she talks about how much she misses me and my coworkers.
So this week is the last week of summer camp at Fairmont. It is quite sad because all my little Korean kids who have been here all summer long left last Friday to go back home to Korea. But although they are all going home I have some really fun pictures of them. Here are some from our field trips. I had a lot of fun lifeguarding and I also got a lot of fun pictures of the boys and girls swimming. This is the only picture of some of the older boys that I have. These boys were excellent dodgeball players. It was always fun playing against them at lunch time. They were always cracking me up. This next picture are of my two favorite little Korean girls, Heeju (on the left) and Jiwon (on the right). These two girls were so shy at the beginning of the summer but by the end they would come up to me and shout, "BOO!" and then run away and giggle. They were absolutely adorable.
I will definitely miss all my Korean kids from this summer and all the other kids who do not come for the school year.
