Wow! I hate that I havent written on here in such a long time! Lets see... Life has been pretty normal here lately...
Midterms were last week and today we had off school for a work day around campus. I spent my morning scraping gum off of the sidewalks. It was actually fun, and it was really nice to be able to get outside and spend some time in the sun!
My classes are going well and my grades are all keeping steady.
My private piano lessons are going well too! I am now playing Christmas songs...getting ready for the Christmas spirit. I always used to get upset when people would start with all of the Christmas decorating and Christmas music before Thanksgiving. However, now that I am not going to be home for Thanksgiving, I look forward to Christmas. Only 44 days until Christmas break! :)
and its been forever since I've written on here. I missed my blogging!
Anyway, I'm at Golden State Baptist College officially now. Its okay, and I'm sure I'll grow to like it, but I'm pretty homesick right now.
Anyway, I have a few pictures:
This is the day before I left. My parents, Oliver and I played scrabble. :)
On my third day at college after kind of settling in, I went to a baseball game. Me...and baseball...it was almost the end of the world. :) It was the A's against the Angels. The A's won by a landslide...
On Monday, there was a Labor Day picnic at the park. I pretty much ate the whole time. I went walking on the trail and fell in a gopher hole...:) That was exciting... and of course, where would we be without the Jungle Gym? :)
Me, in sunny CA
at the picnic
Then on Tuesday the college girls went on a trip to San Francisco to Pier 39. This is me, with Alcatraz in the background.
I saw quite a few sea lions there...
and, that's it for now!
I promise I will try to keep up a little more on here! Today was the first day of class, so I need to STUDY too. :)
I mentioned in one of my previous posts that I went to Music camp in Pensacola FL again this year. Well, I thought I'd post some pictures from that. :D
I had a great time as always (this was my third year) and I learned a LOT. I think this year was by far the best so far.
This is a picture I took and thought was funny because (from the left) Caleb, Joshua and Shiloh are all looking in the same direction. :D

My Name is Virginia, and I am currently a music at a private Christian school. I have a Bachelors degree and Masters degree in music. I play the piano and the violin. I grew up on a farm called Orchard Country Produce in the countryside of Pennsylvania.
I am married to the man of my dreams and we have been married for one year.
I have a great family, and I love them dearly. And I have a God who surpasses all others.
I enjoy blogging mostly because I know I can go back and read through it someday. Someday I will be able to show my nieces and nephews pictures and posts from "way back" when I was young. I am typically sporadic in my blogging, but when I do blog, I try to post a lot of pictures. Pictures are worth a 1,000 words, or so they say! Anyway, just a bit about me. Hope you enjoy looking around my blog.
