Where have the past 2 weeks gone?
I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while.
Things have seemed to be so busy!
As I'm finishing up 11th grade,
I can hardly find time to do anything else
but schoolwork (and music)!
My Calculus, especially,
is taking up a LOT of time and studying!
Oh well, I plan to be done by next month
and then hope to get back to posting a little more.
The above is pretty much what's been going on...
Lots and lots of schoolwork.
I was excited this past week when I got to talk
to Dr. Jay Wile twice over the phone. ;o)
(For those who don't know, Dr. Wile is the author
of the Apologia cirriculum... the science I use.)
I was struggling on an Advanced Chemistry equation
and decided to call, as he says you can do in the book.
Dr. Wile is as funny on the phone as he is in his books!
And he also indirectly helped me with my calculus ;)
I LOVE Chemistry, but anytime I try to explain
things to the people I know they're like "HUH?"
So it was REALLY neat to be able to speak
"Chemistry language" with someone else!
I am also very thankful that the Lord
provided a specific graphing calculator for me.
I needed it for my calculus but they cost over $100!
The local base high school was kind enough to lend me
their TI-84 graphing calculator until I was finished with Calculus.
Praise the Lord!
Today was our homeschool group park day.
It felt so good, being mid 40s!
While I waited for my friend to show up,
I read some books I borrowed from the liabrary:
"Mathematical Preparation for Laboratory Technicians"
and an SAT Chemistry subject test preparation book.
I'm not planning on taking the SAT or anything
but I wanted to quiz myself on the questions for fun ;)
(Dr.Wile said that after I've completed my Advanced Chemistry,
that it's equivalent to a 1st year college course Chemistry,
so I wanted to see how much I knew :)
When my friend arrived, we took pictures of everyone:
The little girls were burying their toy horses...
The older ones were playing tag, I think...
My friend and I were having fun with the camera...
The moms also were enjoying their time together...
(My favorite one is marked with an arrow!)
Hee hee, I LOVE YOU, MOM!
My friend and I loved watching the dozens of robins.
We tried feeding some with molded bread (kind of us, huh?)...
but red-winged blackbirds came and scared them off.
Then we ventured home and my friend and I
practiced a song we'll be singing soon for church.
Then all of my violin 'students' gathered
into my room for the lesson...
About an hour ago, my dear 5 yo sister, Beth,
came upstairs and said, "I want to play my violin wits you!"
So I got out my violin, tuned hers,
and gave her her first lesson...
She learned E and A string.
We played counting 4 Es, then 4 As.
It was so cute watching her getting use to
holding it and playing it...
Oh how I thank the Lord for my family!
My siblings are so sweet and my parents are so wonderful!
He has given me so much!
I hope you all have a great weekend!
By the way, the picture in my last post
was a CROCHETED HAT that I turned inside out. :)
"I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies,
and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant..."
