In the meantime, Beth has some exciting things going on at college. Her first formal banquet, the college Christmas Banquet, is a week from tomorrow night. She has a new dress that was given to her and altered by one of the girls on campus who sews. She found shoes on Black Friday that add a pop of color to her dress, but will go with other things she wears. They were $27 on Black Friday. She texted me and asked if she should buy those or a cheaper pair that she could only wear with her formal. I told her to get the more expensive ones, since she could wear them with other things. I assumed she bought them that day, but Monday night she sent a text that she had gone back to get them and they were marked down to $20! Sometimes it pays to wait.

Beth will be going to the banquet with her friends Megan and Lauren, pictured above. Megan has become her closest friend this year, as they met and worked together on Blue Crew (the work-study cleaning crew) over the summer. Lauren is Megan's friend, and all three girls have become close over the semester. Beth also has friends from our time in Vancouver at the college. In fact, her best friends from Vancouver - minus one - are there with her.

Beth works on campus in the office that handles WCBC's online programs. She's definitely learning new things, as she's learning to edit the videotaped class sessions before they go online. She's enjoying the job, and her office is just a couple doors down from Andrew's.

So . . . that's what's up with Beth. She's doing great and loving college. She especially loves her Christian Womanhood class, taught by Mrs. Rita Weaver, the dean of women. She tells me quite often of things she's learning in that class, and it makes me want to go and take the class with her! ;) She's involved in lots of music, too, singing in the church choir, college choir, and several ensembles. Every time I talk to her she has funny stories to tell from her classes and work, and how much she loves getting to sleep in till 6:45 some mornings! She's also learning to power nap just like her dad. College isn't all about book learning, is it?!
