Did I mention that have class every morning for four hours? Because I do. And a test and a quiz every week. This week we did one chapter a day, which equals a test on three chapters, approximately a trillion pages worth of textbook pages and an infinite number of PowerPoint slides. I keep meaning to write about Spencer's birthday party, but that might be difficult, seeing as I haven't even uploaded the pictures yet! How terrible is that? I know.
I didn't even my get camera out of the bag until last night. There was a beautiful orange crescent moon and I thought it would be a good opportunity to practice using my tripod again- since the 4th of July fireworks didn't go too well. I was getting everything set up on the driveway when I hear a weird flapping windy sound. So I looked up.
Don't look up at night time if you hear a weird flappy windy sound, because it can only be one of few things; a small bat very close by your head, a large bat semi-close to your head, or a bunch of bats that are flying all around. In this case, it was one huge, gigantic bat, followed by a few more, all flap-flapping above my head. I've seen my fair share of bats, one even flew into an open window in my bedroom when I was in the 4th grade, as I was laying in bed. (I'm a big fan of screens now!) But this was the biggest bat I've ever seen in my life- it was a bat on steroids. So when I saw his little familial flock (what's a flock of bats called?) flying behind him, I made a super fast dash for the front door. No pretty orange crescent moon pictures. Just bats.
And then I went to bed. Still didn't upload the pictures.
