Friday, December 18th, I got out of school early. I usually get out of school at 1:30 on Fridays but the week of the 18th we were taking exams so (since we only had one exam on Friday) we were released at 10:30. The weather was nice outside. A bit chilly but, overall, rather nice. My family picked me up from school, we drove two hours to Greenville, TN, pulled into the Johnson’s driveway, got out, and it was snowing. Talk about a changed of weather! My first reaction was, It’s not supposed to be snowing! It’s December! We’re not supposed to get snow until March! Ansa said she wanted to go home but I’m sure she was joking, right?
Ellie and I spent the afternoon running around taking pictures (a few below). That evening we went to their old church to enjoy a local Christmas recital that Simon participated in. I had fun hanging out with them while we tried not to freeze to death :).
Saturday Ellie and I attempted to film a music a video, at least half of one. The boys joined us as we made our way back to the house which is when they discovered large pieces of ice behind the barn. Simon broke a big chunk over his head which looked really painful but seemed not to scratch him. Once back inside we played several games with the rest of the family including dodgeball and Buzz Word. Later the girls decided to open my Christmas presents to their family and they posed for pictures before we retreated to the basement to play more games.
Sunday came, as it always will, and we had to go our own ways. I had a lot of fun with you guys! Hope we can get back together really soon!
QOTD: It seems we have always been, and will always be, friends. Time can change much, but not this.
