Midterm Data Dump

I know I haven't gotten the chance to post for a long time.  Life's been crazy these last few weeks, so I thought I would finally synthesize a bunch of pictures that I've taken or stolen from my mutually adopted little brother.

First off, the Legion of Mary has begun thriving this semester.  Thanks be to God and Our Lady, who have worked through me very thoroughly!  We've grown from a core of 8 remaining from last year's alumni departures, to 15 new members.  4 years ago, there were about 4 members, so I think we're making good progress.  The role of president is a tough one, but it's been much better than I'd originally expected it to be.  I know that all the progress we've made has not been me, but rather my surrendering myself as a tool to Our Mother's use.

At the beginning of October we enjoyed the annual Oktoberfest celebration!  This is always a fun evening, with wonderful food and much fun contra dancing afterwards.  SAC did a lovely job decorating this year, helped by the temperate, sunny day.

I must also congratulate myself on Gloria's stylish braids, since I managed to pin them such that they stayed up through an entire evening of dancing! For a girl with very little hair experience, this was a major accomplishment.[/caption]

Spirit Week leads up to homecoming weekend.  Spirit Week also includes Dress-A-Freshman.  :D

I'll post Homecoming and Parents' Weekend pictures soon.  For now I've just been trying to block out the worries of life by the abyss of the internet.  May God bless and keep you all!
