Good News!!!

Good news everyone! 1) I updated my blog and 2) I made the Varsity Tennis team! WHOOHOO!!! My first match is tomorrow; I am so excited! Sorry I haven't really been updating all that much. I have been on Facebook instead. I will try to get better! Though, with me going into high school, it will be hard.

More fun in my life- I just got back from vacation in Beaver's Bend, Oklahoma. My family rented a cabin and we relaxed on a gorgeous lake for three days. It was a much needed vacation. Already I am stressed with tennis and school preparation. Now, I am renewed; hopefully it will last a while!

Summer is almost over. So sad =( Ahh, well. It was good while it lasted!

Fun in July

I took some really good pictures on the fourth of July. However, they are on my mom's camera and I have no idea where it is. So I will instead tell you how excited I am to go to EFY this year, a summer camp designed "Especially For Youth." I am going to the San Antonio session and am leaving next week. So I am spending today and tomorrow packing up. It is going to be a blast!!!! So how is your summer? Please commet. I am not going on any big vacations; the farthest away from home I'm getting is EFY. I will put up pictures when I return. See you all next week!

A Day at the Races

Today, Josh and I played with Hotwheels. We had a race to see whose track was the fastest. However, everytime it was a tie. So we videotaped it. Still, we are having trouble seeing who won. Can you help us out? Comment to tell which track you think came in first. I won't say which is mine or which is Josh's. Trust me-it's hard to tell. Josh insists he won, but I think otherwise.

Oh my goodness! I have not written in forever! I have been so busy with the last bit of school that the computer has almost completely slid off my To-Do List. Well, I'm back on. The last day of school has come and gone. I will now be a Freshman! More good news: I have already earned a spot on my High School's Student Council! I will miss 8th grade- the carefree, the friends, all the familiar faces. But now I will get to see friends that I have not seen for years because of the school boundary lines. Summer is already in full swing down here in Texas! I don't plan to do much, so if you have any plans, please comment!

I have been babysitting the past few days and will be again tonight! I have found the time to clean out my room. I have given it a complete dust down, sorted out my jewelry, redecorated in some places, and have thrown away a lot of trash. It looks great, but isn't done yet!

I hope to be better at posting more often. Thanks for checking!

Busy Weekend

Well, this weekend was really busy! My mom surprised my dad with a weekend getaway to this cool cabin in Oklahoma. My brother and I stayed at a friend's house. On Saturday, we went to a school car wash, built and painted birdhouses, went to a soccer game and went to a baseball game. It's been a while since I've had a packed Saturday! The trip turned out nicely, and when my parents came home, we surprised Dad even more with a surprise party. He is turning 40 in just a week, so this was his party! He was totally surprised and had a blast!

I just turned in a huge U.S. History project; a timeline with 70 events and 70 questions. Hopefully I get a good grade; I think I did well.

Also, I just turned 14!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so excited. I can now go to church dances, even though waiters still ask me if I want a kid's menu =)

Hope you guys have a great week!

I am writing this post on my new laptop!!! My grandma gave it to me for a birthday present. Well, I love it and am so glad that I don't have to fight with Mom for the computer anymore.

Spring Break is over; I am sad. I was really enjoying the break. At least I will be positive on Monday since it is my birthday. I won't let anything bring me down from my good feelings. I will be very optimistic!

Grandma came into town and we had a lot of fun together. The week was full of botanical gardens, shopping, eating out, and hugs. I miss her already. It is so fun when she is around. Another happy face in the family. Well, I have already spent too much time on this laptop, so got to run!

Mixed Thoughts of this Month

Well, last week I won my second singles match of the tennis season and my first doubles! This week, it was too cold and rainy to play. Plus, the team we would play is really good, so I have mixed feelings of not playing them.

Ohhh, the TAKS test. Even though it was two weeks ago that I took it, I still have nightmares. The reading is the most boring because the stories are anything but interesting. I believe I did well, though.

Spring Break is finally here! My grandmother is supposed to come into town and I can't wait! Hopefully it will stop raining and get a little warmer. And to start the break off right, I just bought tickets for the Coldplay concert this summer! I am sooooooo excited. It will be my first concert.

Only 8 days until my birthday!!!!
