I've been counting down the weeks till I am done with this biology class series. As much fun as it has been, I'm really looking forward to having my old, normal, 8-hour day schedule back.
This quarter I am taking botany, which really fascinates me, but it's like learning a new language with all the various terms and abbreviations in my textbook. I can see lots of flash cards in my future!
I am also really excited to start hiking again. I haven't been going skiing that much this season, which has really bummed me out, but I'm ok with it. I realize that I will have many more seasons of skiing in my life!
Since I haven't been able to go anywhere very much lately, I have been making jewelry and knitting hats, as you can see in the jewelry photos here. I have so many pairs of earrings that I have made and I'm trying really hard not to buy more beads, but its just so much fun!
I'm also excited to start going on hikes with my cousin Stephanie and my sis-in-law Angel and their kids and my mom. It will test my patience since I'm usually one to rush to the end and then hurry back and I know the kids will want to explore and look at everything and take it slow.
I'm hoping it will teach me to slow down and smell the wildflowers!
