March Recap

Standard

March was a long month… A lot of crazy stuff happened, as I’m sure you know! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It wasn’t a bad month though. A lot of good things happened too! And I haven’t been bored even the tiniest little bit either…ย  XD

when-you-find-out-your-nomal-daily-lifestyle-is-called-quarantine-meme

Yup. XDย 

But yeah, boredom isn’t a thing for me. Life has been mostly normal for me personally, except for church. (So sad!!!)

2020-04-06 (1)

Gracie and I have a goal to walk 100 miles this Spring! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

2020-04-06 (3)

My lil’ buddy โค โค โคย 

James can do more pushups than I can, lol XDย 

2020-04-06

Yes, there’s still TP at the store here, lol… XDย 

 

2020-04-06

Mom had her 40th birthday this month! ๐Ÿ˜€

I organized bookshelves a couple days ago… Whew, that was quite a job! Lol! ;Pย 

I have also been doing a lot of art lately, and started learning to draw people, which has been lots of fun! ๐Ÿ˜€

2020-04-06 (1)

I drew this picture of my friend, Kyra! ๐Ÿ˜€

I also painted my sketchbook cover, and even though it could be better, I love how it turned out! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€

Sketchbook

Another exciting thing that happened this month was our church’s 4th anniversary! Well, technically it was last month, but we celebrated it this month, right before the quarantine started. ๐Ÿ™‚ Here is our church picture (minus a couple families). ๐Ÿ˜‰

2020-04-06 (4)

So yeah. It’s been a pretty good month for me, despite all the crazy stuff that’s been going on. ๐Ÿ˜€

And, I shall end this post, with this very deep and thought-provoking meme. (JK) XD

2020-04-06 (7)

Have fun at home, ya’ll!! ๐Ÿ˜‰
