I'm going to the PHILIPPINES!!!

Well, I FINALLY got some answers today! And I'm going to be talking to a woman who knows more specifically what I'll be doing over the summer on Monday. So while I still don't know exactly where in the Philippines I'll be, I do know I am going. Which means this semester I'm going to have to work hard to raise about $2300 to go. But I know it's in God's hands, and I'm just excited for such a cool opportunity. If you want to read more about my internship journey, here it is.

And here is my picture of the day!

I went outside for this one! I woke up with this beautiful soft snow on the ground and knew I had to go outside today. The gorgeous dog in the picture is my puppy (ten years old), Holly. She is one of the happiest dogs you'll ever meet, but boy is she naughty. Right after I took this picture she ran off into the woods and didn't come back for half an hour. Oh, and the big wheel is my dad's old tractor. Normally when there is a snow my dad will tie up a sled and my sister and I will hop on. Then as he starts driving around the house my mom will let the dogs loose. It's good fun for all of us especially the dogs because after chasing us for a minute they are generally able to catch up and hop on the sled as well. But unfortunately this year the tractor is broken and he wasn't able to fix it in time for the winter. It made me realize that I am growing up way too fast. Anyway, hopefully I'll get to take another picture in this kind of snow again before the winter is over!

Photo info: I just took this on auto. The weather was perfect, so I didn't worry about getting all the settings right. But if you really want to know the details, ask in a comment and I'll look it up. :)

  2. Very few. After I took this I had to leave for a family dinner, so I didn't get to shoot as much as I would have loved to.
