Sending you to 4HS

God has used some recent CLEP tests to refine and shape me. I encourage you to hop over to our homeschool blog and read my recent post. :)
Hopefully this blog will be updated within a week!

field trip

Wednesday my family took a day trip and drove a couple hours to take pictures in the Texas bluebonnets, tour the Blue Bell factory and visit the Rose Emporium. Here are some pictures I took (unless otherwise noted)...

Luke and I decided to have some fun with the cameras :)

Tagged again!

Thanks to Lindsay for tagging me! Now I shall attempt to answer the following questions...

What do you enjoy most? Talking, laughing, photography, being with close friends and family, teaching piano

What are some lessons you have taken? Gymnastics, swimming, ballet, tap, tennis

Your favorite authors? Hmmm… Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin, Pastor Voddie Baucham

What do you like to sing in the shower? Haha! Well, when I sing in the shower (which actually isn’t too often) it’s just whatever random song is stuck in my head

Have you ever broken any bones? Yes

What languages do you want to learn? Sign language

What Jane Austen movie is your favorite? I’ve only seen three…Pride and Prejudice maybe?

What are your favorite books of the Bible? Such hard questions! Two of my favorites include Deuteronomy and James.

Your favorite singers? Chris Tomlin, Paul Baloche, Phillips, Craig and Dean, my mom (she doesn’t have CDs though…)

Your favorite types of music? Specific. I’m very picky! Certain praise and worship songs, certain hymns, classical.

Your favorite animals? Rabbits

Your favorite things about nature? The beauty that displays God’s handiwork!

If you were suddenly dropped into a movie, which movie would you like to be in? No clue!

If you could go back to any time period, where would you go? Colonial America probably

What are your favorite writing projects you have done/are doing? Narrative/short stories, some of my worldview writing

Your favorite fictional characters? Never thought about that! Perhaps Millie Keith.... I’m not sure who else.

What phrases do you say/write most often? lol, we need to clean up (my middle brother informed me that I say this often)

How tall are you? 5’4” I think

Your favorite piece of jewelry? I don’t have an absolute favorite!

I know my answers are pretty pathetic. I either try to think too much on tags thus making the question way more complicated than it was meant to be, can’t choose an answer or simply don’t know! Oh well. Perhaps you learned a tad more about me through this!

I will not tag whoever reads this and would like to participate! If you have a blog and decide to do this, leave a comment, and if you don’t, do it in the comment section! :)

Abundance of pancakes!

One of the ladies in our church is due with child #9 any day now, so Katie and I mixed up a whole bunch of pancakes and I flipped 108 pancakes for them. Most we've ever made at once, although I was hoping to get about 130-140 out of the batter. We stuck them in the freezer so they'll be able to pull however many pancakes out when they'd like to eat them.

We had a lot of fun, and made a game out of "how many pancakes we could fit on one plate". ;)
