I've been tagged!

7 things about me...

1. I'm left-handed except I use scissors with my right hand.

2. In kindergarten I wanted to be a firefighter (no clue why).

3. I had three ear piercings but the third piercings closed up.

4. I've never dyed or highlighted my hair, its just the sun.

5. I've never been out of the US, but I've always had a dream to travel to Asia or Europe.

6. I love tea parties still and so do my old homeschool friends. We try to get together and have them every once in a while. They used to be American Girl doll parties but we have more grown up ones now!

7. I'm sort of a pack rat, not as bad as some people are. I just keep things I don't really need but think I will later on.

Ashland Visit

location: Ashland University

emotion: thoughtful

I spent Friday in a bit of a whirlwind. Mom and I went to Ashland, which was a two hour drive. When we got in the town of Ashland we missed the street (mom was driving and I was the one reading the directions) so we called the admissions office to ask how to get there. We found it and got there just a little behind time.

We were given a tour by one of the students, after meeting one of the admission representatives. We had to cross the street to the other side of the campus, when an Amish buggy passed by. Mom and I looked at each other and laughed. We didn't think to see that there!

Next was lunch, which was amazing! Their cafeteria has been awarded as one of the best in the nation. It was really hard to chose. We ended up getting a calzone, potato skins, and finishing it off with a piece of cheesecake! We were really full. Then I had to rush back to sit in on an art class. I think it was an art history class. It was really different being in a college classroom. Everyone had their cell phones out on the table and water bottles, which are two things we aren't allowed to have in our high school class rooms. From there I talked to the cross country coach. I'm not sure if I want to continue to run competitively in college, I'm just exploring my options.

One of my friends goes to Ashland and I was able to meet up with her. We meet up in the bookstore. She showed me her dorm room. It was a short visit because I had to get back to my school for senior night. All the seniors that are in either a fall sport or band got introduced. We also picked up my brother's bunny. I'm sure you will hear all about it at church!

Happy Fall to everyone. Enjoy the pretty colors! Go outside and take a few pictures. ~Lauren

Homecoming Pictures

location: outside enjoying the fallish outdoors
emotion: excited
Alright I know Meli has had her pictures up a while ago. Life for me has been extremely busy! This is the last week of cc. Drama has started so some nights I have both activities to balance. When I find some time to write I will. I miss you all and I will try to get around to reading your blogs.
