Graves: renovated.

Allison and I explored the newly renovated Graves Hall! It is gorgeous, and there's an awesome prayer chapel in the basement. Unfortunately, the circle whisper bench outside is gone.

Allison, Beth and I spent waaaay too long putting this shelf up in the shower. It was so exciting when we finally got it!

Shiny new floor

Today Dave came and put the new floor in "my" room. Soon it will be Katie's, but for now I get to sleep in there a couple days.

My baby sister is a senior!

Today I began to take Katie's senior pictures. The lighting wasn't ideal, so I didn't get many great ones, but we got a good start!

Cornfields are creepy.

We had a bonfire at my house, and ended up playing with my camera and doing many long exposures. We had to do this with our backs to the cornfield, which was very spooky. At one point a bat flew out and we all screamed quite a bit.

(Also: the thing on the far right is supposed to be an anchor.)

Back to basics (oh, and zombies)

Today Dad and I went shopping. I bought lots of clothes, but not in a lot of colors. Lots of basics. I also purchased several books, including "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."

An abundance of cake.

(Also happy birthday to Lizzy!)

Wandering cow.

Kaitlin provided me with this lovely picture to fill in one of the days! It is an illustration of a story I told her about - one of my sister's friend's cows escaped and was found wandering about the golf course.

Double duty.

Knitting with an in-progress knitting project to keep me warm.

Moving out early.

Katie is moving into my bedroom so my stuff is in the den.

My family went to New York and all I got was...

My family went to New York without me, but at least they got me lovely presents! Scarves and a cute little journal to record books that I read.
