Wash, wash, wash your hands

The flu bug is here. At church today they gave a message about keeping people healthy. They put hand sanitizer, tissues as well as a nice flu awareness message out in the hallways. The drinking fountains have been disabled. Also, they ask families who have a member who has/had the flu or fever recently to stay home. Not just the one sick person but the whole entire family. Although, this seems extreme I am very glad that people are aware of the flu because germs do freak me out. I don't want to get sick.

Westview's homecoming dance was last night, though I didn't go to that dance I can just imagine what it was like. Sickness wise that is. Even if people are sick I am sure they still went to the dance. I bet the germs were having a party along with everyone else. I am slightly scared to go to school tomorrow because I don't have time to be sick. I can also tell that many students are not going to be at school because being sick. Facebook is filled with statuses of people having a fever and not feeling well.

So please wash your hands, and cough in your sleeves. As I learned at Kaiser: "Spread the love bug, not the flu bug."

Falling Leaves

I love fall. Not only does my birthday kick off the start of the season but there is just that certain happy feeling in the air. I love when the air is crisp and cool with still having the sun shine. All the colors seem to go all out for this season too. I am fortunate enough to see these colors in action every time I drive around the corner of my street. There are three huge trees that greet me in full festivity each time I come home.

These are some pictures I took last year of the trees.

Happy Fall.

Gone to the beach

I love to read blogs. So I was thinking it might be good to start to write one of my own. Especially since a lot of my friends are away at college, they should know what I am up to too! I will try to write often and make them funny. But no promises!

This past week I didn't have school on Friday due to the fact that schools don't have money anymore. Basically this was a day that no one was at school and teachers didn't get paid to save money. Even though it is not an ideal situation that schools don't have money I was okay with not going to school for a day. Instead of school I was able to go to the beach with a group of friends! We visited our seminary teacher who lives at Seaside. He has the all the connections which was a plus. We were able to rent skim boards and ride around on the bikes they have for free! It was a beautiful day at the beach. Barely any wind and it was sunny and even warm! I got a serious work out in my legs too. From running to catch up with the skim board, ultimate frisbee in the sand and pedaling on the bike all the way to Brother Farmer's house! It was very tiring but very fun! The beach is one of my favorite places and I was able to spend it with a some of my favorite friends on a Friday I didn't have school. What could be better? Not much, in my opinion.

Yesterday I was also able to go to the pumpkin patch with my parents. This is also where I realized I should be enjoying everything I do this year because it is kind of a year of last. This time next year I will be in college (hopefully) and not able to go to the wonderful pumpkin patches in Oregon. Next week is also the Primary Program in my ward and I won't be seeing another one of these until I am in a family ward again. So I will make sure to pay extra attention to it next week.
