Hi! Wow, time sure flies! I feel like I say that a lot, but it really true. I think as I get older (16.....sooooo old;)) life goes by faster. My dad says it has to do with doing the same things over, and over, and over, and over, and over. Well, I've been keeping pretty busy lately, as have the rest of the clan. What with three-soon-to-be-five birthdays going by, school, learning to drive (!!!!!), and other random things, it's been pretty crazy. I also resurrected my camera after a couple months of rest (I brought it to camp but never took any pictures...something I very greatly regret).
On Sunday we were invited to a surprise anniversary party and we passed an amazing sunflower field!!! Dad stopped and let me take a couple pictures. Just 'cause sometimes, you've got to stop and smell (or take pictures) of sunflowers:)
So, now for birthdays. Amarisa turned 1 year old on September 6. She had a little trouble getting into her cupcake, but once we gave her a lick of the frosting, she dove right in!
Mercy turned either 7 or 8 (I honestly cannot remember at the moment) on September 8.
My amazing daddy had a birthday on September 25, but I won't say how old he is just because I'm his favorite daughter:)
Autumn turns 19 today!!!!!!! We sent her a whole bunch of gifts so she'll have a lot of things to open!! Charity turns 4 on the 19th and she's super excited. Timothy has the last birthday of the year in November, but that's a while away. Well, sort of.
Melody and I have been keeping busy with our on-line college classes. We're taking Fundamentals of Speech, which I do not like all that much, but I have to take, and Comp 1 which is awesome;). So far we've given two speeches and written two five-page papers. Such fun....
Also up in the amazing state of Wisconsin (and I can say that because I was born there;)) is the Cola Clash + !! We're taking a group up to Falls Baptist Church for the Cola Clash +. It's basically like an extended Cola Clash, but it costs money, and is more awesome.
Also, to whoever ate half the bowl of cookie dough that was in the freezer.....well, beware. :)
So anyway, that's pretty much all that's going on. Until next time!
God reached down in love and rescued Cassandra from her sin at the age of 21: changing her life, purpose, and focus forever.
