Snow Day #2 So, I’ve really been trying to not post until I was going to write about spring break (so that everything could be in order)…but I don’t have access to Cabo pictures yet so I’ll have to come back and do it later. I woke up this morning to Mary jumping in my bed squealing “April snow day! Yay!” What the heck…a snow day in April? A few...
St. Patty’s Day Okay, so scratch the whole Sammy Adams thing. Our school canceled him because his lyrics don’t align with our Benedictine values, but they already paid him $30,000 that we won’t get back. I don’t want to say that’s dumb because I’m sure they did it with good intentions…but I can’t say I agree with their decisions. Actually, it...
Little sibs weekend was fun. Thomas, Joey, and Katya came up Saturday morning. We hung out at Rainbow for a bit and then went climbing. It was really crowded so we didn’t stay long. We went to a potluck at Idzerda that night and then just hung out at home with Nate and his little sister. A lot of people ended up coming over throughout the night so it kind of turned in to...
Sammy Adams. I just found out that Sammy Adams is performing here at the end of April! Thomas and Joey are going to come. It will be fun. I don’t have a whole lot to write but I felt like it had been awhile since the last update. I’ve been pretty busy lately. The triathlon is coming up and I’m one of the co-co’s so that has been taking up some time. I think it...
I have to give an evangelization talk in Youth Ministry on Monday. Basically I have to come up with a main message, tell a personal story that relates to that message, and then tell a story about Jesus that also relates. The point is to foster conversion to Christianity among youth. This will be interesting. I literally have no background in this sort of thing…religion or...
It's Time for Safrica
I’m going to South Africa next spring! So are Nick, Cole, and Maddie. I can’t wait!
So, I think it’s really cool when you’re able to learn things about yourself in a class that doesn’t seem to be related to the matter. Obviously, biology has to do with me in the sense that it is basically the study of organisms, but that’s not the point. I talked about my bio professor a bit before, but here’s a little more. At the beginning of the semester, Mani...
Happy List Mina made a happy list and said that everyone should have one. So here’s mine. This is what makes me happy (note: they are in no particular order): Thunderstorms Australian accents Cuddling My dog Bubble shoot One Tree Hill Football in the snow/mud Eskimo kisses Looking at pictures Warm blankets when it’s cold out Sunsets Squishing sand between my toes ...
College Quick post before I go to bed and am without a computer for a week. The internet is being dumb and won’t let me upload pictures right now. I was going to put up a picture of Kayla, Paige, and I because I will miss them very very much. I was also going to put up a picture of my extremely messy room. I moved back to school on Thursday and haven’t had much time to...
Blah I am taking a break from studying and packing to write this. I have my EMT practical tomorrow and the written test the next day. I have no idea how either of them are going to go. I feel like I have the stuff down for the practical pretty well, it’s just a matter of whether I freeze up and forget everything or not. The written test on the other hand I don’t feel prepared...
Oh Boy… Ok, so I don’t usually do two posts this close together but I need some me time, or something. I made the girls pizza for dinner. Lucia has apparently developed an “allergy” to pizza and Talia says that her mommy can makes a better pizza than I do (a few days ago they loved pizza). Earlier today they were whining because they wanted to walk/bike to the park....
Weather and Travels So, last weekend was Father’s day. Always an interesting day for the fam. Mom usually wants to do something special, and Joey would rather ignore the day. I think Thomas and I are somewhere in between. We ended up spending the day cleaning the garage and doing things around the house. Dad always liked a clean garage, so maybe that was out celebration. I spent...
This is it, finally
Well, here I am finally starting a blog. I’ve been thinking of starting one for awhile now, my inspiration being the lovely Beth Leipholtz. My blog won’t be nearly as extensive as hers. I am also going to warn you: I am far from an english or journalism major. Writing is definitely not my strong point, so you’ll just have to bear with me through the gramatical errors, I will...
