(Monday) This morning we had our individual oral exams. I had mine with Mrs. Crider. And. I. Rocked. It. But seriously, I did really great. I got to choose six questions out of an envelope & just tell her my answers only speaking in spanish. (my physical appearance & personality traits, my Spanish family, compare my Spanish house to my American house, my likes & dislikes…) I am...
Sunday was a wonderful day. We slept in & spent the whole afternoon with our sweet family. We met Sol’s mom, drove through the breathtaking mountainous countryside, and explored a little town. That evening we met up with our samford group & went to a bull fight. Honestly, in my little fantasy world full of glitter and mermaids, I thought that the bull was just going to chase the...
On Saturday our whole samford group went on an excursion. I drive people nuts on the bus rides begging for them to tell me stories. First we toured a giant part castle part monastery called El Escorial. We toured for two hours and only saw 3% of it. So gigantic. Our guide said in order to see the whole thing you would need an entire week. My favorite part was seeing the under ground royal burial...
Forced family fun
When i was in high school, Daddy Skip began a tradition that is infamously known as Forced Family Fun Night. Either friday or saturday night, no matter what else was going on in my silly teenaged world, our family would spend the evening together. I have absolutely loved that my spanish family does the same thing. This past Friday night was a special one. It was our last family movie night and I...
I’m not sure if the people who read this keep up with my Facebook but I would just like to clarify something. My pictures. We have toured around Spain like crazy the past week weeks. & Lucky for me four of my amazing girls all have big high-tech professional cameras with them. Plus, they edit their pictures like pros. I, on the other hand, have my trusty tiny cannon power shot. So the...

Siestas are still a very real thing in Spain. Most stores are closed & the metro is packed with people going home. Funny. The metro in the morning is completely quiet. No one talks at all. Kinda creepy. Spanish children live with their parents and are financially supported by them into their late 20s. (do you like how I snuck that in there dad?) I thank the Lord everyday for my wonderful...
No mas escuela
I can’t believe we are done with school. We all took our final exams yesterday morning. I studied so hard & worried about that test so much. So when I handed my final to our teacher I literally burst into tears. No, I did not shed a couple dainty tears of joy. I full on started crying like the emotionally dramatic diva that I am. And I think I scared my teacher. He was very confused. But...

The past two weeks have been a Spanish marathon. It’s been painful at times, but I kept pushing and learning more every day. Our final exam is tomorrow. I have a headache. But I know all the material & feel ready. I can’t believe we are almost done. Anyways, recap time. Yesterday, (Wednesday) after tutoring, Joerdan & I met up with the girls and we all headed to the fashion...
