About Me

My photo
I am 19 years old now. It seems like time is going fast, and I am not always sure how to handle it! I started college August 2014. I am studying psychology at North Central University, meeting new people, and drawing closer to God with each step I take. Life is not a destination, it is a long journey. I am excited to see what God has in store for my life, and I hope you will join me as I find out!

We helped out at our churches VBS this year. The theme was The Incredible Race. I was a crew leader and took kids from place to place. There was the lesson, games, crafts, snack, puppets and song time. This picture was taken by Pastor during one of the games. I was sitting down and he came up with the camera. I hid my face and came up and down really fast until I burst out laughing. Then he snapped the picture. It was fun and I hope we can do it next year. VBS was from July 26-29.

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that we were able to get free brand new and brand name backpacks, pencils, pens, and highlighters at Staples.

I am thankful that Mom was able to get me some glittery notebooks and a Bible cover on clearance at Wal-Mart, too.

Feeding the Ducks

We took FigNewTon to feed the ducks last Wednesday.
When we gave the ducks the bread, they all refused it.
Even the mom and her babies wouldn't take it.

I guess they were just being "ungrateful retches." :D

So... we moved on to the geese.
They were really hungry!

I think this one needs to work on his ostrich impression!

FigNewTon showed us the duck walk
that she had to do to get her mail at camp.

Then I did it, too.

We had tons of fun!

Bubble Fun

I figured out how to make "the biggest bubbles ever"
one day while doing dishes. The thing in our hands is the
top of a two liter soda bottle that we use as a funnel. We now make bubbles every time we wash it.

My bubble is bigger than FigNewTons!

At least...

... I think it is!

Happy Fourth!!!!

OK, so, as my title says, HAPPY FOURTH everybody! I could do a really boring, long, hard to understand post like my mom did on our homeschool blog or I could be short, sweet, and to the point.


I think I will go with the latter.
