In eighth grade, we had to keep a daily journal for our English class. I've kept some sort of journal/blog on and off since then, but once in a while end up pulling them out. I found them again as I was unpacking this week.

It was cold today! Really cold! We had English the 1st two hours because Miss Bouws went with her homeroom to the power plant. In gym we watched a short video about lacrosse and then played for about 15 minutes and I had a short sleeved shirt on. It was freezing out!! Everybody thought so! In math we used a spreadsheet to find some answers, and it was really neat! Band was boring but we got fitted for our uniforms. I think the scale is about 5 lbs off, or I gained 5 lbs in the last month I had piano tonight and it went OK. Also - there was an announcement today: "There will be no depantsing people."

No school today!! Mom was gone also. Nathan and I (or at least me) had a bunch of chores to do. In the end it wasn't that bad, though.
(The rest of the years managed to skip the 24th. But I notice that I had an exclamation point problem.)
