Mirror, Mirror

   What do you think when you see yourself in the mirror?  You and I both know that sometimes the thoughts are not to positive. What can we do to improve our self-images and change the way we think about ourselves?
   Kjerstin Gruys is not using a mirror for a year - even on her wedding day!  This brave lady knew she was spending to much time in front of the mirror, and she plans to focus more on her family, not thinking about how she can get rid of those extra few pounds.  Kudos to Kjerstin!  Check out her blog Mirror, Mirror... OFF The Wall.
   So, do you think you could do it?  How long could you go without using a mirror?  Other ideas for improving self-image and the way we think about ourselves?

Worth Dying For

You've gotta believe, He wants you to see, that you are someone worth dying for!
   This is an awesome song by a great band.  I love their name, it has a cool story behind it too.  Watch this video, listen to the words of this song, and take them to heart.

We've Started

   Now that the weekend has begun, I have time to tell you about my first two days of school as an eighth grader.  Overall they went really well. 
   I don't have a very long bus ride, which is really nice, and I have some time at school before the first bell.  I share a locker with one of my besties, which is where I go first to get my stuff together for my first class.  Then I mostly just hang out until school starts.
   We are on an eight block schedule at my school, with A days and B days.  On A days I have Reading, Science, Language Arts, and Choir.   B days include P.E., Algebra 1A, Health, and Social Studies.  I think Science is going to be fun, the teacher seems really good and I have friends in there.  We have the best Health teacher ever, I had him last year, so I know I will like that class.  I always enjoy Gym, and I'm looking forward to that.  Algebra will be the class I will have to work the hardest in, but the teacher is my next-door neighbor, and I really like her.  My S.S. teacher is my dad's defensive coordinator, so I we already know each other, and I will be seeing outside of the classroom - and at my house. 
   I plan on this year going really well, and I can't wait to see what's in store for me!

Yay! 302

  I'm not sure if I got them before school started, because I didn't have a chance to check yesterday, but I have them now!  My goal was to get 300 views before school started, and I have 302.  Yay!  Thank you to everyone for all your help!

This is one of my all-time favorite pics of me.  Elaina took it August 2010.

The Wall of Art

  We were running out of room on the refrigerator.  So my ingenious mother created... The Wall of Art!  There's some pretty cool stuff on there.  Everyone has some creations besides Titus and Jonathon.  Here it is!

This is my favorite by Morgan.  I love how he used all the colors he had.

This is my favorite that Quaid did.  It's a fire flower.

I made this one.

This is my very favoritest that I made.  I did it in Mrs. Meyers class last year.  I really like charcoal.

These really cool roses were done by Elaina.

  Guess what, everybody?  I officially have short hair!  I got my 10 inches cut off this morning, and it's ready to be sent in to Locks of Love.  I hope it makes a little girl out there very happy. :) P.S. Elaina took the pics.
