Life (9/20/2015)


We started attending classes twice a week on September 8th, and things have been a bit of a whirlwind of classes, homework, puppies, choir, and Awana since then.
Some things never change, and although I may have switched from Algebra to Geometry this year, one of those things is that I am horrible at math. Another thing that will never change is that I love to read, and am enjoying my Great Books class immensely. (In spite of the fact that my sister and I got the homework mixed up and ended up thinking we had to do two weeks worth of honor reading in one week on top of our other homework and did just that.)
The puppies are growing like crazy and getting cuter by the minute! I wish they could just stay like this forever. They're great stress relievers. :) But they're already leaving in just 2-3 weeks! However, we get to keep one this time, so that's my consolation.
Awana also started up again, and there's something so much more beautiful about going into my second year doing it then my first. I get to see so many kids I already know, and there's nothing like hearing them say "Christine!" and run, grinning, up for a hug. (The other LIT in my group said I must know everyone there after watching me wave to about five kids in a row.)

Saturday was our school garage sale and car wash. My sister is sick, and my brother had a lot of schoolwork to do, so I was the sole representative of the Taft family. Our friends were gracious enough to give me a ride with them, and their awesome mom bought me a Pumpkin Spice Latte. After examining the various items of the large garage sale, Becca, Elizabeth, and I settled down on the curb with our hot drinks until it was time for the car wash to open. One guy brought in an RV and paid us 40 bucks to wash as high as we could reach with our brushes! It was a lot of fun...until I got home and again faced a large pile of homework.
Another highlight of the week was getting to talk to my friend, Elisabeth, on the phone. It was so nice to talk again! You made my day, just so you know, Lissie. :)
And now, so long farewell...for it's off to homework I must go.

I have been reading everyone's posts! I just haven't been able to comment much lately. I will try to get back into that. You are all so sweet about leaving comments for me!
