A year has passed...


As you can see it has been awhile since we have updated this blog. It has almost been a year now. Wow. A lot happened in that year. Especially with me (Holly). I successfully finished my first year of college, and I loved every minute of it. Bob Jones is a great place. I made many wonderful friends,and learned a lot in the process. I learned about people, about business, and most importantly I learned how faithful God is to us when we are walking in his will. It is truly amazing how God will help you when you are trying to live a life for Him. I found this out in little ways this past year. At 1am when I was studying for a test, or waking up early to practice a speech (on 4 hours of sleep). God places people around us to encourage us, to support us, and to guide us in the paths of life. I am thankful for this past year, and for all that God has blessed me with. I know many of you probably don't even keep up with this blog anymore. Since it is what Katie and I call "dead". lol. But I wanted to let you all know that we are both doing great. I have tried to get Katie to keep up with the blog, but she just doesn't seem to find the time either. Who knows, maybe I'll get back to blogging, or maybe not. Either way I hope all of our blogging buddies are doing good. God Bless, ~Holly~

New phases.


Hello to all of our blogger friends! We thought that it was about time to make a blog post before you all think we have disappeared!! :) Well, in truthfulness I guess we have disappeared from the blogoshere. To be honest we haven't had the blogging spirit lately. ): Maybe it's all of the changes we have been and still are going through. Katie will be going into her junior year of high school (home school) this year. Which is a pretty big step in its self. Since I have graduated I now look back and realize just how important those last two years of high school really are. Next week I will begin a new phase in my life. College. I will be attending Bob Jones University. I am really looking forward to it. I know that it want be easy. Nothing worthwhile ever is. However, in the end I feel that a college experience at BJU will not only be beneficial academically but also spiritually. Katie and I both are looking forward to this coming school year. As you can imagine we probably want have much time to blog,but when we do find the time one of us will try to update you on our lives.
Have a great school year!!

Pictures Once Again..


Hi everyone! We have a new camera! yay! lol (: The one that we had got broken a few weeks ago. Therefore we weren't able to take or post any pictures. So hopefully now that we have a camera around we will be able to post more of our own pics! (= Here are a couple of pictures taken on our new camera..

The Love of God


The love of God is greater far
Than tongue or pen can ever tell;
It goes beyond the highest star,And reaches to the lowest hell;
The guilty pair, bowed down with care,God gave His Son to win;
His erring child He reconciled,And pardoned from his sin. O love of God, how rich and pure!How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endureThe saints’ and angels’ song.
When years of time shall pass away,And earthly thrones and kingdoms fall,
When men, who here refuse to pray,On rocks and hills and mountains call,God’s love so sure, shall still endure,All measureless and strong;Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—The saints’ and angels’ song. Could we with ink the ocean fill,And were the skies of parchment made,Were every stalk on earth a quill,And every man a scribe by trade,To write the love of God above,Would drain the ocean dry.Nor could the scroll contain the whole,Though stretched from sky to sky.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The fascinating history of this hymn: Fred­er­ick M. Leh­man wrote this song in 1917 in Pas­a­de­na, Cal­i­fornia, and it was pub­lished in Songs That Are Dif­fer­ent, Vol­ume 2, 1919. The lyr­ics are based on the Jew­ish poem Had­da­mut, writ­ten in Ara­ma­ic in 1050 by Meir Ben Isaac Ne­hor­ai, a can­tor in Worms, Ger­ma­ny; they have been trans­lat­ed in­to at least 18 lang­uages. One day, dur­ing short in­ter­vals of in­at­ten­tion to our work, we picked up a scrap of pa­per and, seat­ed up­on an emp­ty le­mon box pushed against the wall, with a stub pen­cil, add­ed the (first) two stan­zas and chor­us of the song…Since the lines (3rd stan­za from the Jew­ish po­em) had been found pen­ciled on the wall of a pa­tient’s room in an in­sane asy­lum af­ter he had been car­ried to his grave, the gen­er­al opin­ion was that this in­mate had writ­ten the epic in mo­ments of san­ity.

"All The Way My Saviour Leads Me".


(image) All the way my Savior leads me,What have I to ask beside?Can I doubt His tender mercy,Who through life has been my Guide?Heav’nly peace, divinest comfort,Here by faith in Him to dwell!For I know, whate’er befall me,Jesus doeth all things well;For I know, whate’er befall me,Jesus doeth all things well. All the way my Savior leads me,Cheers each winding path I tread,Gives me grace for every trial,Feeds me with the living Bread.Though my weary steps may falterAnd my soul athirst may be,Gushing from the Rock before me,Lo! A spring of joy I see;Gushing from the Rock before me,Lo! A spring of joy I see. All the way my Savior leads me,Oh, the fullness of His love!Perfect rest to me is promisedIn my Father’s house above.When my spirit, clothed immortal,Wings its flight to realms of dayThis my song through endless ages:Jesus led me all the way;This my song through endless ages:Jesus led me all the way.



Hello to all of our blogger friends!! We hope you all are having a great summer!
It has been really hot here,and to think that it isn't even technically summer yet! (=
I went to the DMV yesterday and got my driver's license. I don't know why I waited so long to get them. I guess it's just because I am always with my parents and they always drive us anywhere we need to go. When I found out that I was going to be a town student this fall I knew that I would need to drive to and from school each day,so a driver's license was pretty much a necessity! (: We have been going to the pool quite often, about every other day. We also been baby sitting our Aunt (Mom's little sister) Gracie. She is so sweet! We are having tons of fun with her! (= Well, that is what we have been doing lately. We miss hearing from you all. We are defiantly going to have to try to post more often!!
~Have a great week!~

Pool Weather


Hi everyone! It already feels like it is going to be another scorching hot summer day here in South Carolina. We visited our neighborhood swimming pool for the first time yesterday. The temps were in the 90s, so the chilly water was quite refreshing! (: We are enjoying our nice relaxing summer break from school! Hope you all are having a great summer also!
~Have a blessed day!


Holly's Graduation


Finally, Here are a few pictures from my graduation! =) These are defiantly not all of the picture that were taken but they are the better ones. Mom,Katie and I. The Palmetto State Association of Home schools Graduating class of 2009. Receiving our Diploma's. Walking down the aisle. Mom, Dad and I. Grandpa Clarence and I. Cousin Payne and I. My grandma-Vicki My Great- Grandmother Grace and I. Have a great week!! ~Holly~ [...]

Hey everyone! We are going to hopefully get some pictures from Holly's graduation ceremony posted on here in the next day or so. So be looking for them! (0:

Almost Finished!!


Katie and I both would like to say Hello to all of our dear blogger friends!! We have really missed hearing from you all! It has been really busy here lately. We are just about finished with school, only 2 more days! Friday evening is my graduation ceremony. So, aside from being busy with school we have also been busy preparing for graduation. Which has been lots of fun! I'll make sure that Katie takes lots of pictures to share with you all! (:
Have a great Wednesday!

Class of '09


Hi everyone! We have been really busy with school this week. We're really looking forward to summer break! My (Holly's) high school graduation is coming up on May 22nd. We have been getting everything together for that. Which has been fun! Our camera has been lost for a couple of weeks now and we just found it yesterday so we should be getting back into the swing of taking and posting pictures soon! Meanwhile, here is my senior picture. I was happy with the way it turned out. Daddy did a great job! I was able to order my cap,gown and invitations from a company that specializes in providing home school graduation gear. I an very pleased with everything that I purchased from them.

~Have a great weekend!~


The reason for our absence...


We haven't posted on here in forever!
We usually blame it on school and today is no different.
However, we have accumulated a new Internet hobby...Facebook.
I (Holly) made my account a few days ago and Katie amidst her load
of school work is working on getting her one.
So now you know that we have not completely left the blogging world lol.
Just to busy to post...and there is that lack of interesting things to post about..
We do indeed miss the blogosphere though!
Hope you all have a great weekend!



(image) Hi everyone. We finally have found the time to make a post!
We have been keeping busy with eveyday things. School,chores,errands etc.
We attented our neighbor that passed aways funeral Friday.
We were reminded of the everlasting love and peace that God gives to us
who are his children in times such as these.
Please continue to pray for this family as they grieve for their son.
We only have a few more weeks of school left.
Our last day will be May 22nd.
Which also happens to be the day of my (Holly's) high school graduation.
So, we have been getting everything together for that.
It will be here before I know it! (0:
Hope you all have a blessed week!




Hi. We just wanted to make a quick post to ask you all to pray for a kind family in our neighborhood. We learned last night that their 18 year old son was tragically killed yesterday evening. Although we did not personally know him, we did see him some times when we walked around the neighborhood and he seemed like a nice guy. We, along with the rest of our neighbor's feel very saddened about the situation. When we look out our front windows and see this family's home it is hard for us to imagine what his parents and sister must be going through. Please keep the Jaramillo family in your prayers. Thank you all!


Weekend pictures


Hi blogger friends! Here are a few pictures from the wedding we attended this past weekend... Cleveland Park

Super busy...


Hi! We hope you all had a nice weekend!
We had a very busy one, hince our lack
of blogging.Our Grandpa came down from Maryland to visit and
attend a wedding in the family. He left yesterday.
So, now it's back to normal. School,chores, etc.
We want to be able to post more frequently
but with the end of the school year very close,it's really hard to
get a whole lot done other than school.
Our last day is May 22nd.
Oh, so close! lol (:
It's exciting for me (Holly) but sad at the same time.
I will truly miss being with my family all day and the daily routine
that I have maintained these past few years of high school.
However, I am excitingly awaiting college- a new chapter in life! (0;
~Have a great week!~

There is a fountain.


(image) There is a fountain filled with blood drawn from Emmanuel’s veins; And sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains. Lose all their guilty stains, lose all their guilty stains; And sinners plunged beneath that flood lose all their guilty stains. The dying thief rejoiced to see that fountain in his day; And there have I, though vile as he, washed all my sins away. Washed all my sins away, washed all my sins away; And there have I, though vile as he, washed all my sins away. Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood shall never lose its power Till all the ransomed church of God be saved, to sin no more. Be saved, to sin no more, be saved, to sin no more; Till all the ransomed church of God be saved, to sin no more. E’er since, by faith, I saw the stream Thy flowing wounds supply, Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die. And shall be till I die, and shall be till I die; Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be till I die. Then in a nobler, sweeter song, I’ll sing Thy power to save, When this poor lisping, stammering tongue lies silent in the grave. Lies silent in the grave, lies silent in the grave; When this poor lisping, stammering tongue lies silent in the grave. Lord, I believe Thou hast prepared, unworthy though I be, For me a blood bought free reward, a golden harp for me! ’Tis strung and tuned for endless years, and formed by power divine, To sound in God the Father’s ears no other name but Thine. ~William Cowper~


It's over...


Yep, Spring break is over!
So, you know what that means...

Back to the books!! (0;

Behold Your King


Hello! We hope you all are having a great Easter weekend! We went to Bob Jones University Friday night for their 12th annual living gallery program (an extraordinary presentation that weaves together art, music, and drama. Striking re-creations of artistic masterpieces are brought to life by real people in unique “living pictures.)The title of the presentation was "Behold Your King". It was really nice. We had a great time.(image) The recently renovated Rodeheaver Auditorium. (image) Us, Mom and Travis ( a friend from BJ)(image) Happy Easter!


Spring Cleaning


We have been doing a lot of our spring cleaning the past couple of days.
Yesterday we moved all of the beds and vacuumed underneath them and rearranged shoes etc.
Aside from that I got all of the floors mopped and everything wiped down.
Now, I have to go polish and vacuum everything.

We also got some painting done yesterday. The baseboards, scratches etc.


So, that's what we have been doing.

Have you all started your spring cleaning yet?

~Have a great day!~

The Christian Race


The Christian Race
Awake,our souls! Away,our fears!
Let every trembling thought be gone!
Awake,and run the heavenly race,
And put a cheerful courage on.
True 'tis a straight and thorny road,
And mortal spirits tire and faint,
But they forget the mighty God,
That feeds the strength of every saint.
The mighty God whose matchless power
Is ever new and ever young.
And firm endures, While endless years
Their everlasting circle run.
From thee, the overflowing spring,
Our souls shall drink a fresh supply,
while such as trust their native strength
shall melt away ,and droop and die.
Swift as an eagle cuts the air;
We'll mount aloft to thine abode;
On wings of love our souls shall fly,
nor tire admist the heavenly road.
~ Isaac Watts~

Beautiful sunshine


Hi everyone, we hope that you all had a great weekend!
It rained here both Friday and Saturday.
We were really thankful for the rain but the beautiful sunshine
made us all the more happy that it had finally stopped.
On our way to lunch today we noticed how green and
spring-like everything is
We enjoyed our beautiful, sunny,windy,spring day!




Hi, We hope that you all have had a great week so far.
We have stayed busy,as always! (0:
