What A Mush-Fest!!

Last weekend, my sister and I made breakfast in bed for my mom. No real reason why ... and we started to go through her hope chest at the end of the bed. 50% towels, by the way.

We found her wedding album! Aw! Cute! My dad looked six with his buzz cut. LOL

Then I found a box with a piece of masking tape on it. "Frankie's 16th Birthday" Hmmm. I'll check into that later ;)

Then we found a small wooden box with four envelopes, two IDs, a pictue of my dad with a goofy hat on, and several strings with flip-flops on them from their honeymoon in Jamaca.

Three of the four envelopes were to my mom from my dad in Somalia about a month after they met. Let me say first, AWWWWWWWWW! Daaaaaaddy, that's sooooo sweeeeet! Ahem, okay. On the first one he drew himself with sunburn. :0 Where do my drawing skills come from??

Peace, Love, Save The Whales!!

As August comes to a close, a quick recap.

So, school is back and, actually, it feels good to have a schedule to follow again. I am enjoying German (Wie heiss du?). I didn't think I would. And I got a new name for seventh period, Sabine. Pretty name, I think. I'm going to use it sometime.

Just read The Hunger Games. Wow. Ho-ly crapstock that was so great! I have got to get Catching Fire soon! Mom's gonna try and read it in a day. I'm waiting for it to get bigger than Twilight. C'mon, c'mon ...

I Will Save Her and Days (which I might get around to telling about later) are going well, too. Plots are coming together, characters are developing easily, and I find that I want to just dive into the worlds I have created and live there forever.

So, all in all, I think August went really went for me. I can't wait for September!

PS - just watched The Blind Side from Netflix last night. I lost it in the middle. Go. Watch. It.
