Update on School


So I was just reading over my blog and saw that my last update on school was that I had made a 72 on my lit test. So I wanted to give an update on my progress.

First, I wanted to share a poem we read yesterday:

The Red Wheelbarrow


so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens

That was in my literature book!! Oh my goodness I never imagined how higher education would stretch my mind and make me such a deep thinker LOL.

Seriously, when I took this class, I was a little nervous because I've said before, English is not my genre. And, everyone told me that the teacher was incredibly tough. If I have to be honest, aside from it taking up a whole lot of time, I've really enjoyed it. As for the teacher, I think she's actually very good (no I'm not brown nosing, she doesn't know anything about this blog) So anyway, I took another test, did a paper and a project and a presentation in class and made A's on all of them. My teacher is trying hard to talk me into becoming an English teacher. That's probably not going to happen since I have this intense fear of being up in front of people but it's nice to be wanted. History is going well too. I've also enjoyed it. My teacher in there really knows his stuff and someone asked who the president was in 1941 the other day and I was able to actually tell them that it was FDR.

Ok, now for the grandparents and Aunts, we'll go to someone much more interesting than myself. Emma is doing well. She has mastered the art of flattery. Every so often she will say, "momma, you're so pretty, you're wonderful". I'll say, "you're so pretty and wonderful" and we'll go back and forth with this for a while until she finally says, "ok, we're both so pretty and wonderful". It's really cute. I don't think I have to worry about this kid having a lack of self esteem at least at this point. She has started bringing up the grandparents every so often so I know she's starting to miss them (hint hint). Her momma is too!

I will try to get a picture today and add it to this post. I got up early to try to get some house work done so I better get to that. Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Love from Above,

Dana

That poem completely blew my mind. I don't get it. lol Well I'm happy school is going well. Oh and I also have to say I love FDR for some reason. Yea I like Eleanor a lot too. So now you know something new about me. And Emma is just too good. She knows exactly what to say. I wish I had learned that at her age. Anyway.. missed seeing you at church since I stayed home. =( I love you tons!
