Just for Kicks

Hello all! It's a beautiful spring day and I thought this little math puzzle would be fun :-) Grab a calculator and a smile because this will be the best 2 minutes of your day! Well, at least for me it will be. Math has always been my favorite subject. To the point where I think it's cool and people think I'm a nerd... woo whoo :-D Here we go!

1. Type in the first 3 digits of your phone number (no area code).
*Example if your number was 555-6767, you would type into the calculator "555"
2. Multiply it by 80
*Example: 555x80= 44,400 (i can't help the examples, it's the teacher in me :-))
3. Add 1
*Example 44,400+1= 44,401
4. Multiply by 250
*Example 44,401x250= 11,100,250
5. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number
*Example 11,100,250+6767= 11,107,017
6. Add the last 4 digits of your phone number again
*Example 11,107,017+6767= 11,113,784
7. Subtract 250
*Example 11,113,784-250= 11,113,534
8. Divide by 2
*Example 11,113,534/2= 5556767

You should end up with your phone number!! Let me know if it worked!

Happy Birthday Boaz!

This is a very special post for a very special little boy. My precious nephew, Boaz is turning 1 today :-) I remember the day (er, night) he was born. My family and I gathered in the birthing center to await the arrival of baby Bo. At 11:46 pm (kind of sad I remember the exact time haha) Boaz Patrick came into our lives. This past year with him has been so much fun and I definitely enjoy being a aunt!

Theses pictures are a look back to see how much he has grown!

That You May Become Like Little Children...

And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:3 NIV

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14 NIV

Down South (With Videos Working FINALLY!)

March 25th-29th I took a trip to Fort Mill, South Carolina. My brother, his wife, and my nephew just moved there recently. I spent the week helping them move into their new house and help out with the baby. It was an absolute blast! I had never gone on a long trip by myself and felt very "grown up" riding a plane a lone :-).

This blog is to share some pictures, memories, and video's of my fantastic time in SC. I must say, South Carolina is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. While there, temperatures reached 82 degrees (it was so hard coming back to FREEZING weather!!!)

Things I noticed in SC. There is a lot of RED!
Red Dirt: (this is caused by Iron in the dirt, hah my geology class has FINALLY payed off!)

Red Fire Hydrants:

But the best part of the trip was getting to spend time with my family. I will definitely miss them. Here are some pictures and videos of my trip. I apologize that the videos don't have sound to them, our digital camera doesn't record sound.

Tour Tyler and Jenn's New Home!:

It was an awesome trip. I hope you enjoyed seeing the pictures and videos from my trip, I certainly enjoyed taking them :-)
