My mom told us last night that we could sleep in the next morning but since I have been getting up in between 6:30 and 7 for so long, sleeping in was impossible.

I have been working on my fish tanks all this week, its like one of those passing fads where today its very interesting and tomorrow I don't care at all. I started the terrarium first, and after three tries to stop the water half from leaking into the dirt half I decided to think it out better and go slower and now it doesn't leak. Then I did the pond tank and got about 30 little fish from the ponds to put in it. The really little fish are slowly dieing and being eaten by the bigger ones, which is ok if they would give the little guy a chance to die first before they start eating it. After all that was done, I looked over at the goldfish tank and decided to redo it as well since it was getting overtaken by algae. So that's what I have been doing all week and I have been enjoying it a lot.

The other day we all were discussing school and when we were starting and what we would be doing and I said to my mom that I thought I had learned enough and could I stop school. I expected her to say no, that I needed to keep going and get those few last credits that I need to "officially" graduate, but instead she agreed with me. You would expect that one would feel some sort of elation to be done with high school and one could go do whatever, but instead I feel the opposite. I am happy to be done yes, but I cant really describe the feeling except that I think I am growing up too fast or something lol. I do not have the money nor the desire to go to college so I am going to stay home and serve my family until Lord willing I get married myself.

Not much else has been happening and I haven't been thinking to deeply on anything so I guess there's nothing more to write. Except it was my sister's birthday yesterday and shes 7 now. 7 years ago that I had an argument with Elijah about who would wake up first and get to hold the new baby, 7 years went by pretty fast.

Heaven above is softer blue,
Earth around is sweeter green,
Something lives in every hue
Christless eyes have never seen.
Birds with gladder songs o'er flow,
Flowers with deeper beauty shine,
Since I know as now I know
I am His and He is mine.
