Farewell, parting is such sweet sorrow!

Well guys, I'm off to the conference. See you all in a few days!

"It's Gone. It's Done." "Yes Mr. Frodo, It's Over Now."

I know I'm being overly dramatic by the title you can guess it....I SURVIVED EIGHTH GRADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeppers folks, as of today, my brain will be allowed to recover for three months before being tortured again. School. is. done. And to celebrate, we got ice cream after music lessons today! Very tasty.

Amongst other things, I'm so happy this week finally came! Because on Thursday, I will be heading off to the homeschool conference my family goes to every year. And I am so excited!

The suitcase is sitting on the couch all packed and ready to go. My bag is packed. And like I said, I'm excited. Or, should I say, over-excited. No, crazy excited! Ahh! Who cares? I'm just really really really excited! Another reason I am so excited is because while there, I will finally get to see one of my good friends again. It's been awhile since we last met up and I have a book I need to get back to her.

I have everything planned out. First place I'm heading after getting settled is of course, THAT AWESOME PLACE WITH ALL THE BOOKS! The Book Fair! I came home with a stack of books last year, and I haven't even read them all yet. Who knows what will happen this year?

My sisters won't be with me the majority of the time, as the older one is volunteering the Children's Conference they are having, and the younger one is going. I was old enough to volunteer, but personally, I would rather spend all my time in the book fair.

I guess that's all I wanted to post about. Sorry it was so short.

Musical Mondays #2

At long last, I'm making a post again. And since it's Monday, do you know what time it is?

**Drum Roll**

That's right, it's time for Musical Monday! And don't worry, I'm not gonna drive you guys crazy with Disney yet.

I know last time I posted something Lord of the Rings related, but I'm also doing the same this week. There are just so many wonderfully composed pieces from that movie and believe me, I had a tough time deciding which one to post. After some debating and some careful thinking, I finally decided on this beautiful song:

In Dreams

When the cold of Winter comes
Starless night will cover day
In the veiling of the sun
We will walk in bitter rain

But in dreams
(But in dreams)
I can hear your name
And in dreams
(And in dreams)
We will meet again

When the seas and mountains fall
And we come to end of days
In the dark I hear a call
Calling me there
I will go there
And back again
[ Lyrics from:
