Lately... (10/15/15)

Goodness... so much has happened in the last month or so, I'm not quite sure where to begin!

I guess I'll start it off this way.

Monday, September 7 (morning): I got my braces off. After 3 1/2 years, it was really nice to know that it's over. Well, at least until I get my wisdom teeth out (which he predicted would happen next summer).
Anyhow, I'm really grateful that they're finally off and I don't have to brush in between the brackets anymore. :)
And that my teeth are straight, of course. ;)

Monday, September 7 (afternoon): We (Elijah and I) started public speech and debate class. It's pretty fun and meets on Mondays at 1:45. So far every paper I've written/speech I've given has been humorous. I probably need to get more serious next time. But this week, we didn't have a homework assignment, so huzzah! One less thing to worry about finishing. :)

Monday, September 7 (evening): We (Elijah, Allie, and I) started visiting Civil Air Patrol (CAP), a youth volunteer/cadet program for teens. So far it's been really cool and I've learned a lot, and so far my favorite night is Emergency Services (ES). I'm really grateful for the patience everyone is showing us as we try to learn everything quickly and correctly. I hope to join up soon! :D

Thursday, September ? (mornings): We (Allie and I) started babysitting at a church on Thursday mornings with a bunch of other girls (there are four rooms assigned to infants, toddlers, etc. and about four girls assigned to each room). I want to be the first to say that my kids are amazing (I'm in the Toddler room) and I have the greatest time playing with them for two hours every week... and getting PAID for it on top of that! Although I would definitely still do it even if I didn't get paid. My kids are the cutest. ;)

So that's what's been going on lately. How has your life been? What's one of the most interesting things that's happened lately in your life? I'd love to get comments from y'all!


  1. sounds like you're having a lot of fun! :)

    My life is incredibly busy. But I suppose the most interesting thing that's happened is a guy asked me out.... which is honestly weird to think about. haha

    Glad you're doing well! :)

    1. You're kidding! That's crazy (only because I can't imagine getting asked out, haha)!

    2. IT IS SO STRANGE TO THINK ABOUT. i actually wrote a letter to myself at the beginning of august to read in a year from now and i actually made fun of myself about how i wouldn't be asked out or have anything to do with guys. and then it happened. and i'm still shocked the guy asked me. mainly because it's the guy i like. o.o

    3. Wow! That's pretty crazy... like I said, I can't imagine a guy asking me out.
      What did your parents think? :)

    4. Yes it is.
      They were very surprised. But they won't let me go. :/

    5. Ah. Yeah, my parents wouldn't, either. :P
