Life Lately...

*looks at blog* Well, it's been a while. Hello! How are you all? If there are any readers left. :P Life has been busy of late, thus the month long silence. I was hoping to do better in keeping up on here, but that obviously didn't work so well. Of course, if you were to ask me what had been keeping me busy, I wouldn't know what to say. It's just that things pop up and take most of this day or part of that day, and so life was busy without you remembering why it was so busy.

As mentioned in a previous post, I graduated high school this summer, and therefore don't have any school this fall (Ah, freedom! :P). Because of no school, that gives me more time for Bible Bee studying. Here's a picture of my desk while I'm busy studying at it. Maybe after Bible Bee I'll get it all cleaned up. This is my last year to compete (sadness =() so, I'm trying to really focus on it and make it count.

Maybe when I have some inspiration and the time (...where does it all go?), I'll give you an actual blog post. This was more of like a drop-in-say-hi-leave post. :P

What has been going on in your life? 
Do you have those days where it's really busy, but when you look back you can't figure out why?

Craft : : Puzzle Hearts

(Sorry for the poor photo)
So here is a tutorial on how to make these cute puzzle hearts.
Materials *Puzzle with missing pieces *Hot glue gun *Heart template (For the heart template just draw a heart shape the size you want or trace around a heart)
Directions 1. Lay puzzle pieces around the outside edge of the heart template until they all lay nicely with no big gaps 2. Lay another layer of puzzle pieces on top and then glue those pieces on one by one 3. Lay two more layers on top and glue them on as before 4. Paint the heart the color that you want and glue a ribbon to the back...if you are giving it as a gift you can add a little gift tag
Helpful Hints Make sure before you start that nobody wants to put the puzzle together :D When you lay out the layers of puzzle pieces lay them on top of each brick style so that all the pieces are connected and it won't fall apart when you pick it up Have fun!! :D
Please comment and tell me if you try it out :D

2016 National Bible Bee // Pictures

National Bible Bee 2016 was so amazing, so of course I had to take lots of pictures of the week. Unfortunately, because of our internet, I am unable to upload them, I'm going to post a few on here and then give some links at the bottom of the post.

2016 National Bible Bee // Lesson #3

This will be the final lesson that I share from my journey in Bible Bee. While I've only shared three lessons, there were so many more that I learned.

So often I get caught up in the future - what will I be doing, where will I live, etc... In my thinking of the future, I miss the present. Life flies by so quickly, and if I spend time wishing for/dreaming about the future, I will lose the present. I'll "wake up" five years from now and regret the time that I threw away.

Every day there are so many little things that we can enjoy and give thanks for. Yet, I so easily lose sight of the present in dreaming about the future. While in Bible Bee, it was so easy to dream about Nationals that I lost study time and time with my family. Then Nationals would come, it'd be over, and I'd look back and think "why did I spend so much time dreaming about Nationals that I let myself lose study time?"

The present days are so precious. Be content with where you are. Do…
