Levi and I have our own blogs now so this will probably be mom’s. I put links to our blogs in the menu to make it easier.
Why I want to leave my pc behind?
My considerations are The MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air.
The MacBook Pro has:
500 GBs of storage
DVD player and burner
2 USB ports
Audio in and out
Built in microphone
Fire wire port
SDXC card reader
7 hour battery life
The MacBook Air has:
64 GBs of storage
2 USB ports
built in microphone
It’s important to me to have:
a lot of space for movies, music, video etc.
a DVD player and burner
a card reader
I need all of these things because I use them on a regular basis on my PC and Mac’s have better programs. You can probably tell the MacBook Pro is a better computer for me to get. The MacBook Air is nice and skinny, 0.68 of a inch to be precise, but I would rather have one that is a bit bigger and fits better in my laptop bag. That is why my choice is the MacBook Pro. It will be really nice to have a laptop that I can actually be used for its purpose, not just staying in one place plugged into the wall.
Today, Mom and I went to a highschool to see what the courses were like and take a tour and stuff. I ended up staying the whole day. I guess you could call that my first day of school. Ever. It was pretty good. The students and teachers were nice and since I didn’t have to worry about tests, it was fun.
Last night we went to Sun Ridge Ski Hill. It is on the river valley and small, but it is only 12 minutes away. At first I tried snowboarding and that was ok but harder than I expected. I changed to skis after a few minutes and then it got fun. I have skied a bit before so it only took me one run to get the hang of it and then it just got more and more fun, until they closed the hill down. We are planing on going again in a day or two and I can’t wait to get back on the hill.
Last friday we went to our youth group and they had a event called Jello Night. You probably guess what we did that night. We played games with jello! There was a kiddy swimming pool full of it. There was jello everywhere and everyone was covered to toe in it. My hands and feet were orange at the end of the night. They had all kinds of silly games and at the end there was a slip and slide with jello. That’s probably when I got the messiest. After that I had to get changed and cleaned up so I could play drums in the worship band. I had a lot of fun!
It has gotten colder outside and it is warm in our house so this happens to the windows. It is really cool and is on almost every window.
Last night dad and I went to the rodeo. We got there right in time for it to begin. I’ve never seen so many cowboy hats in my life, not even in Texas. It was pretty cool. There were bucking bronks, roping, barrel racing, and bull riding. I think barrel racing was my favorite because it was the fastest. Roping was pretty good too and so was bull riding, but the bucking bronks got kinda got old after a while because there were a lot of them. It was loud, exciting and everything I expected a rodeo to be, even the rodeo clown was funny.
After two years of waiting it finally came! Yesterday night it snowed about half an inch, I would like more but it’s a good start. It has snowed a little bit today and I hope it will snow a lot more. On Friday the weather forecast says that it should be -10 and a lot of snow I’m really excited and it looks like it will be a good winter.
Here’s a video of a trail I found in the river valley near our house.
Today we put up our Christmas lights and it was really easy because we have a flat roof and a easy way to get on it. It was confusing what I had to do with the settings on the camera. I had to change the ISO settings, the shutter speed and the f – stop. In the end I got a really cool picture.
