College Tours Part 1.

Most of you are probably aware that I (Holly) am currently in my Senior Year of High school. As some of you already know this is a very important time in a students life. Not only academically but also in making such decisions as which college to attend?,Which major?,or even for some the main question might be: Should I attend college?. My Family and I have thought and prayed on this subject for along time now and I have come to the conclusion that yes,I do want to attend college simply as a means of furthering my education and hopefully enabling a secure future for myself. Of course it all depends on whether this is the Lords will for my life.
Right now we are in the first steps. Yesterday we went to tour the first college of choice
Bob Jones University. Here are a few pictures.

The War Memorial Chapel.

Entering the University. Students at BJU come from every state in the US and more than 50 different countries. The David Field House. We were very impressed with BJU. We plan on touring a few more colleges in the coming months. I would like to ask all of you to kindly keep My Family and I in your prayers as we make these important decisions.
~~~ Afterwards we took a tour of the Museum and Gallery on Campus. It houses more biblical artifacts than any other museum in the Western hemisphere. Second only to the Vatican. It was very interesting!
~Have a great rest of the week!~

Columbus Day...

The first Columbus Day celebration was held in 1792, when New York City celebrated the 300th anniversary of his landing in the New World. In 1892, President Benjamin Harrison called upon the people of the United States to celebrate Columbus Day on the 400th
anniversary of the event. Some Italian-Americans observe Columbus Day as a celebration of their heritage, the first occasion being in New York City on October 12, 1866. Columbus Day was popularized as a holiday in the United States by a lawyer, a son of Genoese immigrants who came to California. During the 1850s, Genoese immigrants settled and built ranches along the Sierra Nevada foothills. As the gold ran out, these skilled "Cal-Italians", from the Apennines, were able to prosper as self-sufficient farmers in the Mediterranean climate of Northern California. San Francisco has the second oldest Columbus Day celebration, with Italians having commemorated it there since 1869. This lawyer then moved to Colorado, which had a population of Genoese miners, and where, in 1907, the first state-wide celebration was held. In 1934, at the behest of the Knights of Columbus (a Catholic fraternal service organization named for the voyager), Congress and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt set aside Columbus Day, October 12, as a Federal holiday. Since 1971, the holiday has been commemorated in the U.S. on the second Monday in October, the same day as Thanksgiving in neighboring Canada. It is generally observed today by banks, the bond market, the U.S. Postal Service and other federal agencies, most state government offices, and many school districts; however, most businesses and stock exchanges remain open.

Autumn Sky's

Hi,We hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We are really looking forward to the start of the school week..Since we have the day off from school for Columbus Day! (: We really don't have much of a choice since our classes that are broadcasted live from BJU will not resume until Tuesday. Anyway,Here is a picture we took a few evenings ago. The picture does NOT do the sunset that evening justice! We started out for a walk and about half way around the neighborhood I realized I should have brought the camera along to capture the gorgeous Autumn sunset..Oh well,We did manage to catch the end of it. ~~~ ~Have a great week!

Archuleta 4 President!?...

LEHI Utah — "American Idol" star David Archuleta is bigger now than ever before
— literally. Covering 12 acres, Archuleta's likeness, along with the phrase "Archuleta 4 President," is cut into the cornfield at the 2008 Cornbelly's Corn Maze and Pumpkin Fest
located at Thanksgiving Point. During an election year, corn maze creator and The MAiZE founder, Brett Herbst, said his focus was initially turned to presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama. "We really thought of Obama and McCain at first, but everyone we talked to was sick of the candidates," Herbst said. "Then we said, 'Let's do Archuleta."' Herbst said they had to get permission from Archuleta's agent before going forward with the maze. Archuleta garnered more than 40 million votes while competing on "American Idol" earlier this year. Herbst said the corn maze was a good way to honor the Utah native's accomplishment. Maze visitors will have a chance to win an autographed copy of Archuleta's new self-titled album when it's released Nov. 11.
How neat is that!
Have a great Friday!
