My School Life and The Last Few Months

I'm a bit of nerd too!
     Since this is my first blog post, I thought I would share a little about me.  First, and most importantly, I am a Christian. After years of growing up in the church and trying to do the right thing, I finally gave my whole life to God, trusting Him with it. I want to tell you that the feeling of the Holy Spirit coming into you is absolutely amazing; I'll never forget it. Secondly, I'm a homeschooler. I like to say that "once a homeschooler, always a homeschooler." ;) Because of the experiences I have had in schooling, I'll probable mention it a lot. I have plenty ideas and opinions that I'll share on the topic of education in America. For now, I'll give you the rundown of my school life as well as why I'm still in the middle of tenth grade when it's halfway through summer.
     K-3 I was homeschooled. Then, in fourth grade I started going to Holly Academy (a great place). For high school, I began in a public school, but halfway through tenth grade I began to miss the life of homeschooling. It took a while to convince my parents, and I probable could have approached it differently, but we eventually made the switch back to homeschooling right smack dab in the middle of December, just before Christmas break! This led to the purchasing of books to be delayed, and therefore, I didn't get my books ordered until halfway through January. By March all my books were in and I really began homeschooling. Of course, then April came, and with 1 week of distracting kids, 1 week of vacation, and 1 week of housecleaning and preparing for that vacation, time slipped from my fingers and I got further and further behind. May was a successful, hardworking month, but coming into June, I knew I wasn't going to be done anytime soon. June was a busy month; between planning for a birthday party and a missions trip, two more weeks were chopped out of my school time. July brought another week of vacation where I mostly relaxed from the busy June. The rest of my summer is free, but after summer vacation, it took a while to get back on track. Okay, it took a week. :( So here I am in the fourth week of July, still trying to get back to a 100% normal schedule. I'm halfway through tenth grade, which is okay considering I've only been able to work on it 3 1/2 months (that is after you take out the weeks I couldn't work on it). 
Fav nail polsh color, my sketch book,
and my art journal.
     This fall I'm hoping to be done with tenth grade so I can order my junior yr of books soon (yes, I'm homeschooling again next year). I'll also be attending a skill center for a Viscom class. It will have art, graphic designs, photography, and something with movies. I'm really excited!
      Alright, I suppose that's enough for my first blog post. Two big things about me (three if you picked up on the class I'm taking) and the last few months of my life. :) I'll make sure to post something about all my hobbies, and I'm sure everyone will find something they connect with. I'm practically interested in everything! Ciao for now!
