"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8 NIV
Hey guys (honestly I doubt that someone's going to read this, but whatever) I'm back from vacation :)
It was so fun! On Sunday, we drove all the way from our house to Washington DC (which took like 13 hours, no kidding) and by the time we actually got there it was 10pm [if you read up to here, tell me the 2nd letter of the alphabet] and I was sooooooooooo tired and it didn't even help that the hotel we were supposed to go to they wouldn't let us in because they said someone overheated the stove and the sprinklers turned on (I think) So we went to a different hotel.
When I woke up the next day, I realized the hotel was AMAZING (I couldn't see that the night before since I was so tired) seriously, it was so CLEAN, it was so SOPHISTICATED, they didn't have a slimy bathroom floor, everything about that hotel was awesome!
And then we went driving around, and we even went to see George Washington's mansion which was pretty cool! I even drew some sketches along the way, but I don't have my phone right now so I can't show you just yet. [If you read up to here, say "Pie is superior to all foods except chocolate"] And my Uncle (who's not really my uncle but I just call him that) came over to our hotel and we had a very interesting conversation that involved computers and Minecraft and his job and my schoolwork and... Blood pudding I think?? Not a clue what that is, but that was something we talked about.
What else. Oh, I was going to go on to the next day, but later that Monday we actually drove to the center of DC and we saw the back of the White House, and the Lincoln Memorial :D
Okay, FINALLY I can go on to the next day. There was a Peeps store, and we went there and bought LOTS of Peeps and a box of Hot Tamales [If you read up to here, tell me what blue and yellow make], and we also got some presents for my cousins. And we spent more than $25, so we got a free Peeps mouse pad XD
And then we also went to, uhhh, what's-it-called?! I forgot. But anyway, my sister wasn't so happy :-\ she kept asking for Panera cups and smoothies, so instead of coming home Thursday (today), we ended up coming home yesterday (Wednesday) The trip back home was unbelievably long!!! [If you read up to here, tell me what 5+3 is] I did everything I could to keep myself entertained- I drew a picture (but it wasn't that good) I played Fruit Ninja, I listened to music on my phone, I watched Rio for like the 500th time, then I watched The Lego Movie for like the 5th time, AND THEN I watched How to Train Your Dragon for like the 50th time (all this isn't necessarily in the correct chronological order) AND STILL!! We weren't home. And here's the strange part- normally I can't fall asleep in the car- seriously, I CANNOT fall asleep in the car. But somehow, I was SO TIRED, I ended up falling asleep.
When I did wake up we were back in Chicago, I think, because my mom said we had half an hour until we got home. I continued trying to sleep but this time I couldn't because my sister was throwing a terrible tantrum and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't. [If you read up to here, tell me that Formal Logic is going to be fun] And then when we FINALLY got home it was 11pm and I just ran upstairs and flopped on my bed and fell asleep.
Thus ended the story of our trip to Washington DC.
Also, you might have noticed that I started putting up Bible verses on my website. That's because everything that I say or do is for the glory of God. And it's just me, okay? I'm not the kind of person who is like trying to convert people or something like that. So yeah, anyway, time for ze verse of the day- or blog- or whatever :D
...River Rachel has left the building to go to either Navy Pier or the Museum of Science and Industry (not sure which one yet :D)
[P.S. If you read up to here, tell me everything that you're supposed to tell me next time you see/talk to me. Okay? Thanks.]
Just a kid who loves having fun and being herself
