My hetic week, or two, or three

These past three weeks have been soooooo busy!! I've barely had time to breath, let alone post. We started school a couple weeks ago. We are using pretty much all Bob Jones University. We are also doing the videos with them. It's pretty interesting. It's a lot better if you can speed them up to 1.5 or even 2 times the speed. You can do that on some of our computers. Cyberlink is the program we use for that. You can still hear the sound and everything, but they just talk faster! :)
We are also shifting into high gear with forestry. Regional competition is next saturday, so we are trying to get ready for that. We're having practices three times a week. One of them this week we had another junior team come so that we could help them out a little bit. It lasted for 6 hours! Everybody is starting to get sort of burnt out with it. I get really stressed the last 3 or 4 weeks. Escpecially when we have trouble with something. We are having a TON of trouble with the compassing. We're ending up like 15 feet off the mark. There are four of us on the team this year. One of the guys has never done it before. The other girl and I have done it for awhile. The other guy went to regional with us last year, but didn't go to state. We got him to join really really late this year. He's not going to be able to come to any practice until the week before! I don't get stressed out during the competition though.
Later today, we have a sewing meeting. We are working on table toppers for a church. They are going to pay us for doing them, which is kind of exciting.
I think Elana is getting sick. I hope I don't get it. We are real bad about drinking out of the wrong glass, since they all look the same, and we all drink water.
So yeah, it's been pretty busy. I haven't done any sewing or anything in 2 or 3 weeks, I think I'm going into withdrawal. (I don't think that's spelled right, but work with me here! :))
Thanks for listening, or reading! :)
