Staying Home from School

Hey, everybody! Guess what? Mom has kept me home from school to help her with school work for a deadline. She kept me home yesterday, today, and she's going to tomorrow. I won't talk about how I feel about that. :) I actually am a little sick (if you guys could pray for me that'd be great). Gotta go! May Jesus' blessings shower abundantly on each of you!! He loves you, and I do too!

Hey you guys! I'm actually watching Revenge of the Sith right now.
So we had Thanksgiving and I ate lots of food and extra lots of pumpkin pie, including the day after.
Then today we went to a wedding. It was these people we know. She used to go to our school (with my sister), and then she taught there. I got to see some people we don't get to see very often, and that was cool. Worship was really good, and the service was half in Spanish and half in English. A passage was also read in Hebrew - I was really excited about that.
Talk to you guys later!

Monarch of Pride and Prejudicy Thanksgiving

Hey, everybody!
It's been so long since I've posted. Thansgiving is just around the corner! We get Thursday and Friday off, and even the days we do have school is pretty low-key. Tuesday after lunch is all setting up the Harvest Party and then Wednesday is the Harvest Party.

So far, I've seen the new Pride and Prejudice twice. It is good. A lot of the characters are nicer: Jane isn't such an airhead, Darcy is gentler and you can see more of him sooner, Elizabeth's change in heart is well portrayed, Mr. Bennet is gentler, and Mary isn't as cold and you see more of Charlotte's reasoning in marrying Mr. Collins, and you feel kind of sorry for her (in the A&E/BBC one, she seems kind of cold-hearted and separated). It's more romantic, which I like, and don't fret if at the beginning of the movie, you're not sure about how Mr. Darcy looks, he'll grow on you (that's the way it was for my friend Stephanie. Much of this commentary was partly noticed by her.) They don't go into the Wickham situation quite as much, and Stephanie liked that. Wickham looks much like Orlando Bloom-just a warning. But Darcy is so sweet, and you do love him and you love watching him love Lizzie and love his sister.

And, I've really gotten into this show called Monarch of the Glen. Stephanie has a bunch of them recorded, and I have watched so much of it recently, it's crazy. It' skind of sad, though, because by the point I'm at watching it, the really important guy is gone (he was pretty cute, and the stuff his character did was interesting. He married the girl you wanted him to marry, and I really like watching him and his wife together. They're cute together). He's the laird of this estate in Scotland-everybody has accents, and, it's a fun show. And one of the actor's names is Hamish. and he always wears a kilt.

Anyhoo, here's a new post. Bless you guys! Love you!~

So much stuff!

Hello everyone. It feels like there's so much stuff to talk about. I don't know if I'll cover it all. Forgive me if I don't.

First of all, I'm in the middle of midterms. I have two more tests left, I think. Bible and History tomorrow. (Friday) If you have the chance, could you please pray for us(me and the rest of the school).

Okay, in the last post I told about how the White Sox were at the World Series! We swept it and won!! Yeah! We were excited. I was at my friend's house watching it. You missed some exciting stuff if you didn't watch it-can someone tell me whether or not the games were aired all around the country. Uribe facilitate two of the last three outs with some awesome playing. For one, he caught a foul ball by jumping into the stand. Next, for the last out needed for the World Series, he got a ball in motion on the ground and instantaneously threw it to first base with perfect aim. Amazing. Thanks you guyu for such awesome playing! Konerko, Podsednik, Uribe, Crede, Bobby Jenks!!!,Since we are who we are (or more I am who I am) I was also excited to find out that Podsednik is engaged! Coolio.

Last Saturday, I went to this forest preserve with my friends to celebrate my friend Rachel's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RACHEL! It was quite exciting while we explored. We climbed down into the dried up river-bed and found a baseball and a stick that could be a bat. I tried to pitch like a White Sox pitcher. Dunno how well it worked. :) As we walked along, we came upon this pool of dark stuff on the leaves and rocks, and my friend Amy commented that it looked like orc blood. A couple seconds later, as we walked along, she screamed and I pulled her away from whatever she was looking towards as she exclaimed that it looked like a cheetah. As we took a second look, it was a dead deer carcass! It's legs were gone and it was picked clean to the bone. We took some pictures of it, and noticed that some of the skin was bunched up by its head. The head was totally intact. As we walked on, there were more pools of blood. My dad says that these are the most likely occurrences:
1) It got hit by a car, wandered off, died, and the coyotes ate it
2) A hunter illegally shot it, it wandered too far off, and the coyotes ate it.
3) A pack of dogs attacked it, ate some, and the coyotes ate the rest
4) 1 in 10,000 chance that a cougar got it, ate some, and the coyotes ate the rest
We stayed around for a while, and walked around and ate on the dried up waterfall in the dark. (salomi and cheese sandwiches-I was so excited!)

And then yesterday we had a birthday tea for her(we have tea every Wednesday) and I gave her Star Wars III for a present. It was so hard because we had to study and do homework so we couldn't , like, watch the whole movie. We just watched some parts (Padme parts) and all day we've been quoting to each other "You're breaking my heart!" and "You're going down a path I can't follow!" We want to watch it so bad, though, and so whenever I would quote the heart line, the other ones would get upset. Anyway, tomorrow we're having a sleepover to watch the whole movie, Lord-willing.

So, I'm very excited about Star Wars, birthday celebrations, World Series wins, and whatever else comes along.

Love and blessings to you all!
