A busy week

Yes, I have been a very bad blogger. School's wrapping up, I had two AP tests last week (English Language and Economics) and a Latin final this week, plus preparing for New Attitude...basically I'm swamped. So I haven't posted all week, and don't expect anything profound until after graduation on June 2. While you're waiting, however, read Deuteronomy. That's where I've been parked in my devotions, and it has been cutting me straight to the heart. Here is one of the passagesthat has really stuck out to me, enjoy:

"For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. It was not because you were more in number than any other people that the Lord set his love on you and chose you, for you were the fewest of all peoples, but it is because the Lord loves you and is keeping the oath that he swore to your fathers, that the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations." Deut. 7:6-9

Sam, Is there a way that I might be able to contact you via e-mail? I would like to contact you about possibly working with you.

Thanks,

What chapter are you on?
Is it 20?
Lucky you for getting so far.
At least I'm still aiming for a full credit...

yeah, we're on chapter 20, but me and Allie also memorized the vocab and declensions in 29 and 30. What are you planning on doing next year, since you've already had some of the basic Latin?

Sophie said...

Well, I don't know.
I want to try and finish it out if Mrs. Mays lets me. Even though Latin isn't my favorite I feel as if I need to finish it out...
What are you going to do since you have ALL of the basic Latin down?
Are you going to do second year Latin?
Whoa! the declensions? were they hard to understand since they are 9-10 chapters ahead of you?

Sophie said...

Did Brielle memorize the declensions with you guys?

Sorry, I didn't finish up my thought. Well, if Mrs. Mays won't let me continue then I will try some other language. Hopefully Spanish, because Mexico might be the first place I will try and start my dream.
