I'm going crazy without a camera! I feel like I can't post anything because I don't have pictures to post. It shouldn't be that way, but I love posting pictures, and it's easy to do a short post if I have some pictures to go along with it. Oh well, I'll have to see if Jacob thinks we can get one before Christmas...I need to be able to take pictures at Christmas time for sure!

Oh, and I know you all are in shock that I've actually written twice in one month, but try to keep from falling out of your chair! :)

I was thinking this week would be easy, considering that it's Thanksgiving week, but I've chosen to make it my "get ahead week," so that I can have an easier time for the last two weeks of school. We'll see if that actually happens because, although I get a whole week off from history classes, I have a full week of required English Comp. stuff to do, which includes writing out an outline for my argument research essay. I've never written an outline before and from previous experiences from writing essays, I do better when I just sit down and write instead of trying to write an outline on something that I haven't written yet! I wrote out at least a start to my outline last night, but it probably needs a lot more work, but the goal is to have it hopefully finished by Thanksgiving! :)

Enough about school though, that can get boring! I will say though, that having the requirements of homework and classes have made me feel like I'm being more profitable with my time, and even when I'm not doing homework I feel more geared to doing things that need to be done rather than just wasting my time. Of course, I'm still looking forward to the end of the semester and being able to do whatever I want without worry about homework, but I'm sure I will fill up the time quickly with all the things I want to do! :)

I probably won't have time to get back on and post before Thanksgiving, so I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and gets to spend plenty of time with family!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, I'm Still Here, But....

I am officially failing the upkeep of my blog. There's been times where I could have written, but I chose to do something else with my time instead...don't hate me! :) We are all doing well around here, although, Jacob and Bethany did have a sick period about a week ago. Abigail and I somehow managed to stay well though, which was a relief since I wasn't sure I could handle taking care of multiple sick people, being sick myself and keeping up with schoolwork! The end of the semester is in sight though! Woohoo! :) I'm looking forward to the break and being done with English Comp. especially. Don't get me wrong, I'm actually enjoying it a lot, but it requires a huge amount of work every week so I definitely won't miss it! I hope I can get an "A" in the class would be nice to have A's in every class for this semester!

This is probably going to have to be all for now. People should be arriving soon for a bonfire and I need to get the rest of my school books put out of sight for awhile! :)
