So, originally we were only suppost to be in Alabama for a mere two weeks, every monday we've said we were going to leave, but every sunday pushed it back another week.
I have to say I couldn't be happier with that decision.
After the walk, i got so depressed... like crying about everything, every memory, every picture, every...everything. Katie and Hailey wanted me to go to school with them and I was actually really scared about it, but the day came where i had planned to go, and by that time I needed to be around people.
The walk was like eating a lot of chocolate, and enjoying it thoroughly... then after the four days of european chocolate eating is over, it's like puking. mental and emotional throw up.
I went to their school, and loved it. i've been homeschooled my entire life (except 5 days in new mexico... but that doesn't count) So public school really, REALLY scares me. I'm in some ways sheltered.
Katie, Hailey and I have come to the conclusion that we have no understanding of flirting. like at all. no understanding or way of seeing it when it's happening. we've had a few run-ins with teenage boys, starbucks barista boys, skater boys and what have you. but people have thought we were flirting when we of course weren't. is giggling flirting now? or what about being nice? ugh... any ways. it turned out that the school was not at all what I thought. there are five people in their class, and everyone is nice... and they sing the beatles. like really? we sang yellow submarine the first morning i was there. plus it's not public school... it's private community school, so big difference.
What i'm building up to is the pictures. there is more, but these are the more interesting ones.
p.s. these are not in order at all. because I'm lazy.
