Nearly everyday I eat 2 of these light Babybel mini cheeses.  I have tried the red ones and I don't like them as well.  I always let them set out and soften before I eat them.

Day 256, Wednesday, September 13, 2017

As I was leaving Subway this afternoon, the fox walked right past me and into the field in front of me.  I watched him for a little while and he was probably looking for food.  He looks like he might be sickly.

Day 255, September 12, 2017

Our school participated in a crisis drill this morning.  Our local police did a great job of preparing us for a disaster.  I pray we will never need this knowledge.

Day 233, Monday, August 21, 2017

Our first day of school was today.  The solar eclipse was also around 1;00 pm.  All of the students got a pair of sunglasses, so they could view the eclipse safely.  It didn't get dark, but it was kind of a funny color outside and we could hear the crickets chirping because they thought it was dusk.

Day 232, Sunday, August 20, 2017

I gathered pictures of some of the cakes that my mother had made over the years.  I want to display them at the Celebration of Life next Sunday.

I went to Rob and Cyndi's to look through old pictures for Mother's Celebration of Life.  I found this photo of me in about the 4th grade.  My hair is pulled back into a pony tail.  I see Nate in the photo of me.
