Just a little update

I thought I was going to update this every week, not so much. This second semester has been busy with 16 credits of math and science plus the labs. I finished my first and second set of mid-terms, not sure why they are called midterms if there are three sets.
Last night we decided to celebrate the early coming of spring with a bonfire! We had done one last week but we started late, forgot blankets and had to do everything in the dark. This week we started before sunset, had blankets, brought marshmallows (!) and got the fire pit with a view of the downtown skyline. We were greeted by a very unfriendly snapping turtle who we named marco to replace the friend who didn't want to come to the fire. Once we were there, fog started rolling in. We decided to try to burn the fog off the lake with our fire. We had quite the flame going and the fog left for a while. Later that evening we were visited by a muskrat and a raccoon.The evening was a success.
   Today i decided to ride my bike to the grocery store after a failed attempt on Thursday. The first time I got confused because there were names that had dr and rd. I got some good deals and resupplied my fruit and dairy.
   Tomorrow I am going to a Maple Sugar Fest and volunteering. I was warned that I might have to wear pioneer clothing and cook pancakes over an open flame or scoop ice cream. Should be fun. Only one week until Spring Break, we will see what I can fit in those 7 days.

There Dad, I finally updated this :)
Love

The first post

Everyone was right, college is busy. I realized there is no way for me to email everyone who deserves an email, so I am starting a blog. I will try to update it weekly, but beware I may miss a few posts. Feel free to share this link with anyone who would enjoy it or if I forgot to invite them. Updates, stories, and pictures will be uploaded once I return to Badgerland :).

xoxo
