I'm so happy right now! :D Let me tell you why...

For one thing, I just changed the background of my blog and that always makes me feel like I have a fresh new start on here.

The next thing is just recently I finished up my English course online with an A+! :D

Another reason is in my Spanish 2 course online I only have 7 more assignments and then I am done! WHOOP WHOOP! That just leaves me with my Algebra and then the other class I am going to be taking over the summer.

The FINAL reason I am so happy? Its because I have an awesome, rocking out penguin here on this post! Too bad he's not green, it would make him even more awesome...

If you haven't noticed by now, I am obsessed with penguins :P

County Fair!

Last night we went to our local County Fair to hang out with friends, ride the rides, and to see how our paintings and dresses that my sisters and I sewed placed. For the paintings, I placed 3rd (which is not at all bad because that was my first time ever doing a "real" painting) and for my dress that I sewed I placed 1st. I was very proud of myself. My sisters did very well also so it was a great fair for us.

Also the rides were pretty fun. The only thing I do not like about fairs is most of the rides at them are the kind that just spin. After a while, you get sick. I have never thrown up on a ride (and I never will if I can help it!) but I did get really queasy a couple of times. I think the favorite ride of everyone in our group who went was the Typhoon.

Da zoo!

Sorry but I have been so busy lately that I haven't been able to post this up until now... On Tuesday our homeschool group took a field trip to a teaching zoo and a planetarium owned by a nearby college. I don't have any pics from the planetarium but I do have a bunch from the zoo part of the trip :D

Emus are the second largest bird on earth. It lives in Australia. Just like its relative the ostrich, it is a flightless bird.

Alpaca-Alpaca's have 3 different types of spit. First one is a mist which is a warning. Second is a little bit worse and means I am getting aggravated with you, please go. Third is very mucus-y, very nasty and pretty much means, I don't like you, GO AWAY! hehehehe :)

This is a Rec Ruffed Lemur. This thing looks adorable but while we were watching it, one of them starts screaming its head off. Oh my goodness, it was hilarious! They are very loud, I don't even know how to describe it! You can watch and listen to them on youtube if you follow this link-

And of course you have to have gators in a zoo! I can't remember which gator this one was, there was two in the exhibit.

Bald eagles! These two are injured so they cannot be returned to the wild.

Isn't this little guy adorable???? He is a caracal. This isn't my picture because the one that we saw just slept in the corner, ignoring us. He lives in Africa and the Middle East.

I hope I haven't bored you will all my animal facts but I do adore animals so sometimes I just blab on forever on what I know about them.... :) I do hope you liked the video of the Red Ruffed lemurs ;)
