A Bunch of Stuff


Today is the official start of Autumn!
I'm so happy! The weather here has already gotten a bit chilly, and I'm looking forward to
 spending more time outside.

I made dis. ;) No stealing! Give me credit if you use it.

In honor of this special occasion, I wrote this little poem:

Goodbye, Summer.
Goodbye to sunny days and the green grass.
Goodbye to sand between my fingers
 And waves lapping against my feet.
The clear sky and butterflies.
The summer sun beating high 
and carefree days with everyone.

Hello Autumn.
Hello to cloudy days and yellow grass.
Hello to raindrops falling against my window
And reading inside on my bed.
The crisp air and apple pie.
Fallen leaves flying high,
And long walks under the sky.

I hope you enjoyed. :) 

You'll never believe what I saw this morning.
In our backyard, my mom and I saw 2 beautiful cardinals swooping down and 
chasing each other. It looked like they where playing tag. :)

They looked almost exactly like this except it
wasn't snowing outside. ;)
I have some good news! In exactly a week's time my mother and I will be taking a
 trip to the beach. Isn't that wonderful? 
I have been looking forward to this for months. We are going with our home-school group, so all my friends will be there. :D We will be going from Tuesday to Saturday.
Believe it or not, the house we are renting is about a 15 min walk to the beach AND it has it's own hot tub and swimming pool! :D :D
I will be able to take a whole bunch of pics and do lots of blog posts because I will be taking those days off from school! (I will still have to do a small amount of math, :( but that's about it.)
The downside is that the house is several hours away from where we live, so I will be stuck in the car for quite a while. Not the nicest place to be. 
Anyways, I just wanted to let you people know in case I suddenly start talking about
 random stuff about our trip. :P

I feel like this post needs something. Hmmmmm.....How about another tag? I know I've 
done a lot lately, but I really love doing them so.....
