Tonight, we were invited over to the president's house for cookies, cake, and ice cream. It was a lot of fun to just hang out with Mrs. Habecker (the pres.'s wife), play with their Portuguese Water dog called Taylor, and listen to everyone play various instruments, including the piano, the guitar, and even African Drums. There was a lot of laughter, prayer, and good community. Every older student talks about the deep sense of community here at Taylor, and this FISP (Freshman Irish Studies Program) is forming a wonderful, caring community even after four days. I can't wait to see where God is taking this group!

Right now, we are all in the lobby/hang out room of the Swallow-Robin dorm, eating popcorn, listening to Irish music, and watching the Olympics. Today was my last day of class with Dr. Cosgrove, but our test is still due tomorrow. I'm done with that and should be done with homework until I get to Ireland! That's definitely a relieving feeling.
