idea. I'm going to use it for wall art. =) And I probably will use them for other stuff too. They could be great for decoupage, and some of them would make amazing paper dolls...

Once again I am turribly busy. Or maybe I should say I still am. Mostly I've been doing school (Bold, underlined, and italic-ed!) Lol! Actually italic-ed isn't a word and neither is turribly, but yeah. You get the idea. :-/
One exciting thing, that I haven't mentioned yet ... I finally found a bed! I've been making do with one half of an old wooden bunk-bed, but I now own a full-size rusty metal bed frame! =) I have to sand it, or I guess scrub it (?) since I'll be using steel-wool, and then I'm going to spray paint it yellow! It's going to be fuuuun! =) Of course, my current wall color won't match the bed, but that's okay, because I never really wanted to keep that color anyway. So I'm hoping to paint the bedroom white, and make some yellow curtains. Also I want to make a quilt. And maybe a rug. And I would really like to get some framed stuff up on the wall. And maybe I'll spray paint some other stuff yellow while I'm at it. Lol! You're probably guessing by now that my future posts will be about spray-paint and redecorating. And you're probably right. But we'll both have to wait until I'm done with chemistry! :p Ugh-ishness.
But anyway, between now and then you can check out my two favorite internet addictions (besides Facebook) =) The first is an amazing site called Pinterest ^_^ I love it. It's sort of like an online bulletin board, and you can "pin" photographs and images from all your favorite websites and blogs. It's a great place to find ideas! (and waste time) You can find my boards and pins here. =)
My other favorite place is called Goodreads, and it's very useful to keep track of books you've read, are reading, and want to read. This is me, right here.
I'm now off to clean up my stuff, and maybe practice the piano! :-/ Hopefully I will be back very soon. See you around! =)

|Jason made his own Book Swap sign.|
|Food table :)|
|This is my little friend Lydia. It's special cuz we have the same name. ;)|
|Sam being Sam|
|My friend Hannah, and her uh... pet dragon, Scales. (!) :-)|
|Ben, Sam, Scales, and random little kids in the tree.|
Now that everyone has gone home, Mom and Dad went out to eat (one of their motorcycle dates hehehe) Lol! =) The boys and I had chicken nuggets, soft pretzels, layered jello and flat soda pop for supper. I think we're going to watch some Andy Griffith, and maybe I'll settle down to some new books! :-) Toodles!
I also got a new camera. Hurray! I really badly needed one. :p So anyway.... yeah. Lol. So far today I've gone to classes at ANC, read some of my Sonlight, and wasted time. Tonight we're having a family over for supper... they have six little kids. Tomorrow we're having an enormous homeschool book swap event, so we're getting ready for that too. I'm making layered jell-o for tomorrow, and I've got to get my room clean, and help Mom set the tables and make food for tongiht. So I should be going! More later... =)

I have been really busy lately. Really, really busy! Lol. And it makes me sad that I haven't kept up with my blog, so I will now try and give you a brief post on what we have been up to. :)
First of all, Sam and I have been taking some classes at ANC (the community college Dad works for.) And yes, we are just a wee bit younger than the average student, but we get to go for free (one of Dad's job perks) and it helps us a lot with getting all the science we need. We are taking Survey of Chemistry, and Composition I, both on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We also get to take piano lessons from Mr. Hay again, but this time we're taking individual lessons, rather than a group class. So anyhow, that's the main reason we're so busy. It should be less busy and stressful once we get used to it all.
Sam and I have also been able to go to youth group with our next-door neighbors, which gives us a chance to be around other kids, and has been working out pretty well. :)
This weekend we went up to Illinois for Labor Day weekend. We didn't get to spend much time with Grandma Wildermuth, but ALL of the Morris family was home, which was pretty awesome. All together we're eighteen people (I think!) Grandma and Grandpa, six uncles, two aunts, and two cousins, plus us! :) We got to see our two uncles who live in Colorado, and we got to see Aunt Carolyn, who has been in Zambia all summer. She had lots of stories, pictures, and a few presents! :) In fact, we got to hear Zambia stories from everybody, because my grandparents and six of the boys (including Dad) spent four years as missionaries there.
Carolyn brought the boys knives and slingshots, and little clay water buffaloes that a little Zambian boy had made specifically for her to give to her nephews. :) And I got a cool bag, and a chitengi, which is a piece of cloth that they wrap around and use for a skirt. I haven't quite perfected my chitengi-wrapping skills, so I'm not sure it's safe to actually wear mine yet. :p Lol!
|This is the chitengi pattern. I love it. :)|
And that's it! I think I'll do a post on my thrift store finds later (it will be a long one) =) But for now, TTFN! (ta-ta for now!)
