I recently realized that I’ve been neglecting my blog.  It wasn’t like I wasn’t on WordPress, it’s just that I never thought about posting or was able to come up with anything to post about. Then, I realized that most of you have no idea what’s been going on in my life, and my friend Bri seemed to think that you guys would like to hear about the Squid’s recent happenings. So… 

I started volunteering at my local library!  I’ve had two trainings and I could totally see myself working at a library for my entire life.  Shoutout to the Mid-County Library’s staff members for being so incredibly nice and welcoming and for showing me where the sticker station is and how to use it on the materials!

Also, I’m going to be teaching at our next B.R.I.G.H.T. (Being Radiant In Godliness, Holiness, and Testimony) Lights meeting on the Authenticity of Scripture!  For the whole of 2016, girls have volunteered to co-teach on a topic, and I finally am going to have the opportunity! πŸ˜€ 

I never actually posted about the two trips I took in the past 3 months, first to Little Galilee Christian Camp in IL back in July, and then to Ohio over Labor Day weekend for a family reunion:

“Hi, nice to meet you, I guess I’m related to you somehow. See you next year!  Maybe I’ll remember you that time…”

Both trips went really well and, hopefully, I’ll get individual posts on both.  Hopefully.  I also have a In A Nutshell St. George and the Dragon story to write… (I haven’t forgotten! 😊) 

For now, here’s my awesome family group members and me from camp. We were the Spicy Bois and had an anthem.  Basically, sing the words “Spicy Bois” over and over to the Jurassic Park theme. We would sporadically belt it out while walking to and from camp activities… to the complete confusion of the rest of the campers. The name itself had to with Fire Ants, not us, lol. 

Then, in Ohio, we spent the week with our crazy family members, but, due to the fact that I actually took those pictures off of my phone, I’m going to, instead, show you a picture of my new favorite Ohioan dog lovin’ up to me.  His name is Banjo and he’s super smart and quiet, barely barking at us at all when we first pulled up to his house.  Also, he herds chickens, so that’s pretty awesome. πŸ™‚

Both photo credits to my dad πŸ™‚

Also, I started school this past Monday, and I’m having a blast! #homeschooling

Looking forward to a whole other week of it! πŸ˜€

Friday morning was a field trip with our homeschool group to the Edison and Ford Winter Estates where I took pictures while singing Tobymac with friends. #bestdayever 

Anyway, that’s all for now. πŸ™‚ #askmewherethebooksare #homeschoolnerdlife #likemysocks #spicyboisforGod


You Might Be A Nerd If…

You are elated when given new school supplies.

You have to go down the pens isle every time you go to a store.

Your heart warms when someone says, “Wow, you’re so smart!”

You ADORE libraries.

Your books have to be over 300 pages. (Minus pictures)

You have perfected your evil laugh.

You reference books that most of your friends won’t read for years.


We have all witnessed things that assure us and/or our friends that we (or they) are hilariously nerdy, so please add more of these unmistakable signs in the comment section below.Β  I’ll update the post with your suggestions credited to you once I get at least five unique comments, but I won’t make the comments public so you won’t know where you fall in that quota. Mwahahahahahaha…… *cough* sputter* cough* *regains composure like nothing happened*


Handwriting Tag!

Allie nominated me for the Handwriting Tag!  Thankfully, my parents just upgraded my tech to an LG G4 so I am now able to take pictures of things in front of me, including my notebook.  Without this phone, you’d be waiting a lot longer for this post…

I was given things to write as follows:

1. My name.

2. My blog’s name (I included the address too…)

3. My favorite word and its definition.

4. Something nice.

5. The name of my favorite song right now.

6. What I was writing with.

7. A fun fact about myself.

8. To write and/or draw my favorite emoticon.

9. A silly message.

10. Who I’m tagging. (the scary part)

So, without further ado, my handwriting!

I’ll be en route to camp for the next couple of days and then at camp for the rest of the week.  Until then, tata!


P.S. I’ll start volunteering at my local library when I get back from camp! πŸ˜πŸ˜„ My application was accepted today. πŸ™‚
