New School Year//Starting 11th Grade!

Standard
New School Year//Starting 11th Grade!

Hey everyone!

This week, we started a new school year! Everyone moved up a grade, and we all got new books and planners, which my mom made.

I’d been finished with 10th grade for a few weeks, so I was more than ready to get started with school again! I always love starting a new school year. New school books, planners, notebooks, supplies, and new motivation… love it!

This year, I decided to share with you all what my 11th grade is like! I hope you guys enjoy!!

This year I have 9 different subjects/books. I’m going to list them all here, and then go into each one in a bit more detail.

~Intro to Anatomy

~For You They Signed

~ Jensen’s Punctuation

~Great Christian Classics

~Beyond the Book Report

~Creative Writing

~Bible

~Creative Thinking

~Math

First, here is my planner! Mom made it, and I designed the cover. I really like how it turned out!! Inside is a weekly chart, where I can check off the books as I do them each day.

Intro to Anatomy

This book was published my MasterBooks. There are are 4 textbooks with different topics, and I will be going through them one my one, and doing the worksheets in the teacher’s guide. πŸ™‚ Anatomy isn’t my favorite subject for sure, but it is quite interesting!

For You They Signed – The Spiritual Heritage of those who Shaped our Nation

This was written by Marilyn Boyer, and also sold by MasterBooks I believe. πŸ˜€ This goes through each of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, one by one in detail. πŸ™‚

Jensen’s Punctuation

Again, by MasterBooks!!! (If you can’t tell, we rather like them…)πŸ˜‚ Last year I did Jensen’s Grammar, which I really did not like, but Jensen’s Punctuation has bene better so far. (So far!!) 😜 😁

Great Christian Classics

Put together by Kevin Swanson, and published by Generations. This is definitely the hardest out of everything! However, I am rather enjoying it. (And a different kind of way…🀣) Right now I’m reading through Augustine’s Confessions, which is difficult, but it’s a good challenge! The hardest part is actually probably answering the Questions about it though. But it’s good!! And after I finish Augustine’s Confessions, I will go through Patrick’s Confessions, The autobiography of John Patton, and more. πŸ™‚

Beyond the Book Report

By Demme Learning, the same people who do Math-U-See I believe. (Which I have never done, and am fine with leaving it that way… haha!) XD This one is a bit slower paced, so I’m not completely sure how I feel about it yet. Basically, it’s about writing good book reports. So exciting. (I’d rather read the book without the report.) 😏 πŸ˜‰ LOL! XD

Creative Writing

Another writing book, but this one is a lot of fun! It’s definitely written for a younger audience, but hey. πŸ˜‚ Written by Jennifer Yoder, and sold by Christian Light Education. It has lots of fun writing prompts and assignments, so yeah. It’s fun. πŸ˜‰

Bible

Speaking of Christian Light Education (CLE), I’m also doing their Bible course. CLE uses Light Units, which are just thin little booklets, and you have about 10 of them that you work though throughout the year. πŸ™‚

Creative Thinking

Published by Critical Thinking. This one’s been pretty fun so far! πŸ™‚ There are puzzles, and brain bending stuff, etc. XD 😁

Math

And last and definitely least, we have math! LOL. I’m not a huge fan of math, but it’s not really bad, when I understand it! (23% of the time maybe) XD

Currently I’m doing math online, and I’m using CTC Math. (And I have no clue what that stands for. Chastising The Children maybe. Or Chipmunks Talk Carelessly. I doubt that one, but you never know! )

If this screenshot doesn’t scare you, then nothing will! (Or is it just me?) 🀣

And here’s everything! All my books fit perfectly in this tote, which I keep them in. πŸ˜ƒ (That’s NOT an iPad in there by the way! Just an iPad box, which I conveniently keep my pen and pencils in. )😁

And there are all my subjects for 11th grade! Now I want to show some of the school supplies I got! Usually I don’t buy special things specifically for starting school, but this time I decided I wanted to. I only have 2 grades left after all! (Wow, that still shocks me!) XD

I got the two super pretty notebooks at Walmart! The plain blue one is for History and Anatomy, and the second one is mainly for math. πŸ˜„

I got these rainbow pencils, also at Walmart. I know they are certainly not the best quality (like 2 dollars folks), but they’re sooo pretty, and that’s what matter to me in this case. 😁 πŸ˜‹ 🌈

(Oh and I can’t forget this random pretty pencil my friend Kyra gave me! Lol!)

These little magnetic bookmarks (I got at WALMART) have been the perfect fun (and useful!) edition to my 11th grade! And the sticky notes were given to my by my friend, Emily, and I love them!

And last, most most certainly NOT least, in fact it’s my favorite things ever… This awesome set of colorful pens!!!! (I definitely did NOT get them at Walmart. Ok I did. I love that place. It’s a good thing I don’t get to go there very often… LOL!)

Anyway, I’ve had and LOVED these pens (in black) for quite a while, and they’ve been my absolute favorite pens I’ve ever used like EVER. So it’s so much fun to get them in colors! They’re a bit expensive though. Well, for me. $12.00. Maybe that’s not that expensive for most people…. πŸ˜‚ πŸ€‘

But it was totally worth it. I’m not using these only for school (that would be hard), but it’s certainly fun and motivating to be able to write my notes in all the pretty colors. 😍 😁

There’s everything, in all it’s beauty!!!

So yeah! That was SO MUCH fun, getting ready for, and starting 11th grade. The first day of school went well, with me going through it a bit slowly though, getting things figured out, as is expected. πŸ™‚

And my sister’s new kitten, Denver, was definitely not being a major distraction. (But honestly, he is WAY TO CUTE!)

And there you guys go! If you didn’t like the rest of my post, I’m sure those cat pictures made up for it at least. XD But I hope you enjoyed anyway! I’ve been doing 11th grade for a few days now, and it’s been a lot of fun. (And work, haha!)

I hope everyone’s having a great day!!

My 17th Birthday!

Standard

Hey everyone!

Today we celebrated my 17th birthday!!! Technically my birthday isn’t until tomorrow, but since tomorrow is Sunday and were busy all day, we decided to celebrate the day before. (You won’t catch me complaining!) πŸ˜‚ 😜

For my birthday meal, I had chicken nuggets, fried potatoes, salad and garlic bread.

Yum!

And for dessert….. We had homemade ice cream (which I made, by the way 😁) And guys. It tasted better than store bought ice cream! Like, seriously. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but it was amazing! πŸ˜‹ πŸ˜‚

We had a bunch of toppings on top, such as chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce and caramel sauce (which I also made), blueberries, pecans and sprinkles. AND. The only thing that had any sugar was the sprinkles. πŸ˜€

It was all really good. It’s been 4 and a half hours, and I’m still full…! πŸ˜‚

The whole family (except for me) at the table. πŸ˜€
This picture was taken at the same time as the picture above it, just from a different angle! πŸ˜‚
All of my siblings and I! ❀

Thanks to my family for an awesome birthday!!!!! It was a blast!

And um… It’s kind, really hard to believe I’m 17….! πŸ˜‚ (Well, as of tomorrow) πŸ˜‰ Like how am I thought old?! πŸ‘΅πŸ» I don’t feel that old… Maybe that’s because I haven’t had my actual birthday yet! 🀣 Maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow feeling different. XD Lol!!

Well, I’m signing off for now! Hope y’all are having a great day, aaaaand… happy birthday to me. 😜 πŸ˜‚ 😁 πŸ‘‹

Love,

Rosy

Trip Recap, Part Two: Arizona Family Camp

Standard

Hey guys! I’m finally here with part 2 about our trip! The reason I haven’t done this sooner is because we went on yet another trip… So I guess maybe I’ll tell y’all about that in part 3? We’ll see! XD

But as for right now…. Here are some pictures of our time at family camp with the amazing Heritage Baptist Church! (Get ready, cause I have A LOT of pictures here!) XD

We got there a couple of hours early, so we took a hike in the surrounding area.

After family camp, we went to my friend, Kyra’s, house.

Well, I hope that was enough pictures for you guys! XD It was hard to go through and pick which ones to post, because unfortunately I could post all 800 of them. πŸ˜‰ XD This entire trip was a BLAST, and I’m SO glad it was able to happen! ❀

P.S. Here is a video I made about family camp, where you can see tons for stuff we did! πŸ˜€ hope y’all enjoy!

Trip Recap, Part One: Kansas

Standard

Hey everyone! In September, our family went on a 3 week trip to Kansas, Colorado and Arizona. We had an amazing time! That’s also why I haven’t posted much at all for the last while… I hope to pick up on that, now that we’re home. πŸ˜€

Anyways, I want to share some of my favorite pictures from the trip! This post will have some pictures from Kansas, and the next post will have pictures from family camp in Arizona. πŸ˜€


On our first day, we drove all the way from Mexico to Kansas – almost 1,000 miles! It took us about 20 hours. XD We drove from 3:00 in the morning, to around 12:00 at night!

2018 vs. 2020! (One of my favorite pictures from the trip!) πŸ˜€

We spent an awesome 2 days with the Cook family in Kansas! (Thank you, Cooks, for your hospitality! It was a blast! )

Stay tuned for more pictures of the rest of the trip soon! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜„

A couple weeks ago, I really wanted something different with my hair…. So I decided to do something I’ve been wanting to do for a while – but have been kind of scared to. Cut my own bangs! Watch the video below, to see how it went! πŸ˜€

Happy New Year!

Standard

Wow. this year has flown by so crazy fast. But don’t we say that every year? To me, it seems a little bit cliche to say that, but it’s true, so I’m saying it anyway! Lol. XD

dreamstime_2020

2019 was one of the hardest years of my life. It was also one of the best. A lot of things happened to me this year – both good and bad. But through everything, I know God has been with us, helping us along through the trials, and I know He will continue to be with us in the year to come.

2020.

Remember when 2020 seemed so far away? I used to think I’d pretty much be an adult by then, lol!Β 

As for New Years Resolutions….. XD Here are some of my resolutions last year.

  1. Keep track of every single book I read.

I kinda quit counting in June… XD

2. Read at least 50 books.Β 

Ok, in June when I stopped counting, I had… 56. XD So, I read a lot more than that! πŸ˜€

3. Learn to be more content with where God has placed me.

I think the Lord has definitely been teaching me this!

4. Be more consistent with journaling.

For the first half of the year, yes. The second half… Not so much. XD

5. Try to get, and STAY more organized. πŸ˜‰

Sometimes…..? Lol!

Also, today marks the end of the DECADE! (Wow!) XD

Have an amazing year, everybody!! ❀
