Oh dear. Once again, I have been neglecting my blog . And although I'm sure this matters to a total of like . . . 1.25 people in the world, my heart aches at the thought of those 1.25 people, sitting at home on the computer all day long, saying, "When will Becky post again?" So here it goes. . .

I have stayed very busy this semester. Are you surprised? Didn't think so. . . I believe it is either contagious or hereditary, but either way, I seem to have the "involvement bug." School hasn't been too overwhelming in and of itself. I am taking 12 hours, and getting good grades across the board. I just love my English teacher, and her class, but I'm not terribly wild about anything else I'm taking. However, I still manage to plug away, and I am looking forward to a very long winter break.

Other than school, mostly just the same activities as always. I get to spend a lot of time with the younger kids, driving to various events and babysitting frequently. I think that this year more than ever I have come to fully appreciate my family. I would even go so far as to boast that I have the best family out there. . .

Basketball season has started, and finally, I am not playing! If you know me, this may make you laugh. If you don't. . . never mind. :) But Abby is playing, and my good friend Camie is coaching, so I am going to be a presence, helping out where I can. The big news is that Mum is trying to extract herself from the inner workings of RHAA. Meaning someone needs to take her place. Meaning I volunteered. So I have been trying to figure out the system of communication, paperwork, etc. It's fun, for the most part, and since I've been helping her to some extent since we started, I'm figuring it out pretty quickly.

I am going to Christian Campus Fellowship (CCF) at MS&T every week, and really enjoying it. The music is great (contemporary stuff!) and the teaching always fits in with things God is teaching me personally at the time. (Weird how He works that out, huh?) Until this week, I had really not met a lot of people. Somehow, by the time Thursday night rolls around, I am always exhausted, and being outgoing and meeting new people is the last thing I want to do. Of course, it normally is. . . Anyways, this weekend they had a Night of Praise on Friday night, and a bonfire on Saturday night, and I actually talked to some people I didn't know! It was quite fun, and I am already looking forward to our next meeting.

And most exciting on the agenda is Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday! This year, it also happens to fall on my birthday. . . :) And I'm going to be 17. Which is just frightening to think about. So please don't mention it. I feel half-way in the grave already. . . this may just push me right in.

On the downside of life (or maybe this is the plus side, I can never quite tell), God has been working in my life a lot right now. I will avoid the gory details, but I would appreciate prayer in this time of breaking and reforming. I know that the prayers of His people are heard, so any you can send my way would be grealy appreciated.

Lastly. . .send me an e-mail, or comment on this post and let me know how you are doing! I've found that not only does busy-ness ruin my ability to communicate about my life with you all, it makes me kind of unavailable for keeping up on your lives as well! Vicious cycle right there. . . but that aside, I'd really love to hear from you!

Fingers sore, but smile on my face,
Becky

Sigh. I think I'm going to take the option of a non-blooger identity off my blog.

Sigh

Please don't take the non-blogger identity off! I won't ever be able to post a comment again. I would more than likely cry myslef to sleep at night if you did. :(

.25,
You need to identify yourself so that the posting privileges of non-bloggers is not taken away.
