Joye to the world

 Seeing as it is only about a week and a half after Christmas, i thought that would be an appropriate title. This is my very first blog entry, so bear with me. Now, I am not as good as my oldest sister, but she was my inspiration and some day I want to be as good of a writer as she is. The idea for this blog really came from my dad. We had a crazy adventure trying to get from Wisconsin this past week. It was so crazy that he said "Someone should write this down so we never forget it." So, here I am. Last Friday, our day went as so:

  • 6:30 AM- get to Madison airport after our flight to Chicago was canceled, and tried to get on a flight to Dallas, which was also canceled that morning.
  • 7:20 AM- We took a bus for 2 hours to Chicago, where we were, or thought we were, guaranteed a way home.
  • 11:00 AM(approx.)- Attempt to get on a flight to Arkansas, where we were told we had seats, but while we were waiting, the flight filled up, and we were bumped off that plane.
  • 12:15 PM- We were trying a flight to Tulsa, Oklahoma, that would then take us to Dallas from there, but the flight was delayed an hour, to 1:15, and if we had gone on that flight, we would not have made our connection to Dallas.
  • 1:20 PM- Got on a plane, finally, to Oklahoma City, where we would then connect to Dallas.
  • 3:45 PM- after landing in Oklahoma City just an hour earlier, we got on our last plane of the day, to good old Dallas, Texas.
  • 5:00 PM- after an entire day of traveling, we landed back in Texas, safe and sound, just in time to celebrate the New year with our friends and family.
So i hope you enjoyed reading about our little adventure. I would love to hear your comments on this so I can know how to improve my writing. Thank you, and have a great day!

  1. Kara I absolutley love this! I wish I would write down my day and write things such as these! I love it :) Its brilliance! You asked for suggestions. The only one I have is maybe add a little more detail. Make your reader feel like they are there with you. :). But other than that that is it. You have such a great talent for expressing yourself in song, dance and now writing. Keep it up girlfran! I love you sweet girl!
