So you are all wondering how sanFrancisco is going well unfortunately we could not get an appointment until August 19th. So me and my mom decided to continue the train trip to Oregon. So after seeing Covenant at church on Sunday Elaine took me to the train station and we got there at 8:00pm and I found out the train was an hour late and so I stayed there and continued to read my book. Then the train was there. So I got on had trouble finding my seat, and sat with this older woman. And read my book until I was done with it at about 1am. Then I talked a little with the woman across the aisle and how she was going back home to spokanne. So I slept at about 1:30am and kept waking up until about two thirty. So the other women across the aisle told me that we were in spokanne and that the seat in front of me was available. So I said thanks and moved up and slept until about 5am because I got a new neighbor and went right back to sleep and woke up at about 6am. And my neighbor was gone. So I sat up and then just sat there looking bored for a half an hour. But then the woman who told me that the seatw were open from spokanne, came and sat next to me and we started talking she was 19 and worked in a hospiital. All of a sudden we became train buddies. So we had been talking for about 4 hours until finally we came to portland. We traded phone numbers and have been talking since. and now I am at my cousins house and have been at the beach. It has been a blast!

Happy Bastille Day!!

Well today July 14th is Bastille Day! Now you are probably wondering just what is Bastille Day well let me tell you and I will tell you in English!!
In Paris on July 14, 1789. But First what is Bastille???? Well, Bastille was a prison in Paris that was considered or represented the authority of Paris. But you want to know a fun fact there was only 7 prisoners in the prison when it was stormed.Now around this time the French Revolution was occuring, which was a time of great murder and amazing leaders(maybe not in the sense that they were good but that they were amzing leaders). It started with famine, economic issues, and problems with the Old Regime or Leader. Louis XVI was the ruler and due to all the recent battles such as the American Revolution and Seven Years War France was in major debt. The storming of the Bastille and the later Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (which was made in mind of only men and pissed some pretty strong women off), was the third event of this opening stage of the revolution. The first had been the rebellion of the higher class, refusing to aid King Louis XVI through the payment of taxes. The second had been the formation of the National Assembly and the Tennis Court Oath.
On the morning of 14 July 1789, the city of Paris was in a state of alarm. The demonstrators had earlier stormed the Hôtel des Invalides to gather arms (29,000 to 32,000 muskets, but without powder or shot), and were mainly seeking to acquire the large quantities of arms and ammunition stored at the Bastille. On the 14th there were over 30,000 lbs of gunpowder stored there.
The crowd gathered outside around mid-morning, calling for the surrender of the prison, the removal of the guns and the release of the arms and gunpowder. Anyways it was overrun with revolutionaries. As an interesting historical footnote, the key to the Bastille now resides in George Washington's residence of Mount Vernon. It was sent to him by Lafayette in 1790 as a peace offering.
Now you know some French history!!

FINALEMONT!!!!!!!!(finish in french)!!!!!!!

I have finished my coat and I know you will like the finished project. It's going with me to France and since I made it I have come up with a signature for all of my clothes that I make. Towards the end of my project I put a royal purple color thread that was small and very hard to find. I did this because I was out of black thread. So that has become my signature so that you can tell it is my clothes whenever I make it big (which will be soon). Right now I am making aprons. I'll give you pictures as soon as I finish!
