Winter fun

Oh, what fun it is to play in a winter wonderland. Especially when you don't have to play in the snow. I'll have to take a picture of a fort Emily and I made. So far it has kept out the snow on the finished sides.

Falling. The leaves are falling.
Reminding me of the tears on my face.

Wilting. The flowers are wilting.
As sometimes I wilt when I think of hard times to come.

Leaving. The birds are all leaving.
Just I am left to think of what I've lost.

Needed. Gone are the things I thought I needed.
And I find I have all I need.

Never. Jesus will never leave me.
Though things get hard He is always with me.

Forever. He has promised me forever.
I will have Him for all eternity.

Growing. Through Jesus I am growing.
Being molded into who He wants me to be.

Always. I have always.
Always I can care. Always I can share.

Jesus. He fills my empty spaces.
It's Him I love, for Him I live. It's Jesus.

Well, now I've done it

Two years ago I posted frequently, and when I read blogs of people who didn't post often I thought that they needed to hurry up and post something fun so I could read about it. Now I'm those other people, posting only occasionally. So, here is a picture of a sombrero Jason made.

Bible Bee

Well, for me this year's Bible Bee is over. On Friday we went down to the cities and Saturday was was the local competition day. For the written test I got almost three-quarters of the questions correct, and in the oral round I knew almost one-third of the passages I was asked to recite. Considering I had memorized less then one-quarter of the verses I got lucky in the ones they asked for. I did not place in the local Bee, but last night we found out it was only by sixteen points. If I did the math correctly I am in the top third for my age group across the nation. Two people I know get to go to nationals! Congratulations!

Orchestra camp!

I got back yesterday morning from orchestra camp. It was a lot of fun again this year. I'm really surprised that I didn't get sore from playing three to five hours a day. In the morning and early afternoon we (my group) usually would practice and be bored. At four we started the beginning orchestra, at five had a half hour break, and then practice for the advanced orchestra would begin. We finished practice at seven thirty and would then go back to the cabin to eat supper. That was a very late supper as compared to what I'm used to. :) On Wednesday night there was a potluck for the orchestra players. Thursday night was game night at the Big cabin. Some of us played Crainum and it was fun but I didn't know a lot of the things. The ones I did know I amazed everybody with though. Well, this is all coming out in random order unlike the way I did this last year. :) In the first orchestra I got to do a solo. I played it so beautifully on Thursday night. :) I started flat at the concert. :( I was able to fix it right away, but I wish I had played it as well as the night before.
I don't want to start school tomorrow. That week was really fun without having any responsibilities.

Here is the post!

Let me think, what have I been doing since my last post.
On the 25 of June I took the examiner's test. It didn't take me long to finish. As the examiner was correcting the tests I saw one that was 100%. I was in agony after that, not knowing if it was my test or not. It turned out that it was my test so I was really excited about that.
After we were dismissed my Mom took me to meet some friends and we went to a family camp.
That next Monday Emily went off to camp. We didn't miss her. (Well maybe a little)
We went to the pool nearly every night. (All summer not just while Emily was at camp)
For the 4th of July my Grandpa and Grandma and a friend of my Mom's came up.
On the 5th I went to swim in the morning, and later I went down to Brainerd with my grandparents.
Tuesday another one of my Mom's friends went to Brainerd and I went to the cities for the week with her. That was a story in itself. I got home on Sunday.
For the next two weeks I went to Wow to swim Monday through Thursday.
The 14th was Jason's birthday.
On the 15th Jason had an ortho appointment so I went to Roseau and got my permit that day.
I'm going to skip up to yesterday now.
My behind the wheel training was scheduled for this week and next week. I did better today then yesterday. Although I made a bit to tight of a right turn today. :)
Well that was not detailed but that is some of what I've been doing.
Now I'm going off to do other stuff.

So I suppose I should do a post sometime to let everyone know what I've been up to...but that will have to wait. Maybe I'll get it done sometime.

With the exception of the examiner's test on Friday, I am finished with the classroom education part of drivers ed. I didn't get 100%, but came close. Out of fifty questions I only got one wrong!

All right, I'm finished bragging.

Busy Busy Busy

As you can guess from the title I have been very busy this week. My days have consisted of Drivers Ed. in the morning then helping at the library for a bit then coming home and working on Bible Bee. That takes care of my day up to about two o'clock. (That last sentence is probably not grammatically correct, but I'm not going to fix it.) Also we have in the evenings been going to the pool.

Next week is going to be at LEAST as busy. After Drivers Ed, instead of going to the library I am going to go help at a VBS.

I do wonder if nobody has common sense. One of the questions on a practice quiz we had yesterday was; the sign, "Right lane ends" the question, True or False "I must merge to the right" There were actually several questions like that!!!!

Melissa thinks I need to go help her shoot the bow. I think there are going to be to many mosquitoes out there though.

Yesterday it was so warm Jason decided to get the slip-n-slide out. Actually though he needed quite a bit of help setting it up. All of us kids played in the water except for Aaron. (Whimp!) David even played with the hose.

Jason's snowman

Well, I had several pictures of a snowman Jason built, but I can't find them. The snowman was tall though, at least 5'7." The middle ball was pretty hard to get up. :)

I Don't know it anyone cares, but I just thought Big Ben looked cool.
