Succulent Propagation Attempt #1

I know this post is kind of late, but now it's here! This year we went down to our second cousin's place for the day.

That might of made sense 5 or 6 years ago, but now that'd be like 13 k…

*We had our first church softball game yesterday and beat the opposing church by one point; 8 to 7. I got onto a base, so I'm calling that a win. :) Also, a small plane flew by and drew a smiley face in the sky above our field, so that was cool.
*Read The Book of Hours, by T. Davis Bunn, and really enjoyed it.
*I read the second half (I think Isaiah onwards) of the old testament this month and learned that most of those prophet books are seriously depressing.
*Started learning our first choir song for next…
