Today I found a sign of the end of summer. The black flip-flops from Old Navy that I have worn almost every day - almost meaning maybe I skipped one or two - have had a heart-attack. The left has a hole in it and the right is so thin that if I wore them again tomorrow it would have a hole too! They have been such a great pair of flip-flops thought. Only costing $2.50, available in tons of different colors and lasting an entire summer of use - I highly recommend them!

Thursday the 18th was our first worldview class of the year. We watched a bunch of Schaeffer movies and looked at art. It was fun, though most of it was review and I'm more looking forward to the rest of the year. We have to read the Divine Comedy: Hell this week, and the Divine Comedy: Purgatory the week after, so we'll have a rather fast pace.
August 22, which is tomorrow - my Spanish 2 class starts. I guess I just gotta say it. I'm not looking forward to this class. I did well last year, but it was hard because we didn't have much of a schedule or syllabus, so it was constantly spontaneous. This year we have two teachers, one for the spoken part and one for the written part. I would appreciate prayers!
Overall, I'm going to be busy this school year, but I'm excited to get it started because then it will be over sooner and I'll be closer to graduating!
