Hola

Hey everybody! Just wanted to say hi and I’m home now! We got here on Monday night. Since then, we’ve been busy with our regular activities for church, school, and home. And I’ve been designing and setting up a blog for our homeschool group! So exciting. Here’s the link if you wanna check it out:

I wrote a speech for a public speaking class today. It’s about why I’m pro-life. It’s not due until mid-May though, so… yeah. I’m kind of an over-achiever. Anyway, my brother David and I are going to an open mic night later tonight! I’ve never been to one before, so I’m excited. It’s at a small Christian cafe in a town about 10 miles away from where I live. Maybe someday I’ll actually muster up the courage to get on stage and sing something. It’s hard enough with a choir singing with you! But God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. For our LEAH homeschool group, we’re memorizing parts of Narnia. This week, I’m the White Witch. Fun stuff!
I think that “In His Hands” is coming along… nicely. Adding more about Scarlett’s past and “in between” stuff. I’m also giving the characters more depth to their personalities. I’m writing a really fun part right now! 🙂 Also I’ve been rereading “Rose Marie”. I want to try finishing that one soon and I need ideas for it.

Kony 2012

This is horrible. Please take 30 minutes out of your day to watch this and maybe even do something about it. I will not be attending any of the events, but I’ll definitely be spreading the word and praying for the people whose lives have been affected by Joseph Kony’s heinous crimes.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

I’m sitting here with my brothers on a wavy beach of North Carolina. It is lovely here. Our hotels haven’t had very good internet connection. It they did, I would’ve been updating you almost daily! We were in Washington DC on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Toured around awhile and rode a subway for the first time in my life! It was fun… and kinda weird too. But liked it a lot! Now we’re near Cape Hatteras, NC. It is so beautiful here. I love the ocean. We’re staying in a hotel about 100 yards away from the water. The waves are fantastic. This area reminds me of a Nicholas Sparks book. 🙂 Going to an aquarium tomorrow.
I am so impatient for my brother to be born! We met a 1 year old baby boy yesterday. He was so stinking smiley! Can’t wait… just a few more months to go! 🙂
