My Senior Year!

So, I just started my senior year at the end of August and it's going really well. I got a few new friends. I got a new one at lunch time named Emily and then some in PE. Their names are Ben, Haley, and Jason.
I'm also taking choir this year and it's a lot of fun. We have been doing voice exercises and we are soon going to do a song. This is my first elective too. So I'm excited I'm finally taking one:)
I also have three new teachers including my choir teacher. They've been really good.
We are doing volleyball in PE right now too. Right now we are just getting in little groups and working on surfing. We are doing it in the gym.
So far I'm doing great in school and I believe I'm going to have an awesome year:)

What I've Been Up To

So I am finally back on my blog. It has been such a long time since last time I blogged.
The Thursday right before Easter all the high school kids and young adults from church we all went on a cabin trip.
On Friday Brother Danny took some of us mettle detecting. It was a lot of fun. I got a wrench and a square nail that were really old. I brought them home and kept them.
Brother Chad also took us gold panning. First, you take your pan and put a scoop of dirt in it. Next, you put a little bit of water in it from the lake, then you take all the rocks out of the pan and swirl it around, finally you dump all the water out. I never found any gold, but it was still pretty cool.
We also played electricity It was my first time playing it. It was awesome.
On Easter Sunday we went to church then we went to Amber's house. Amber my cousin had invited us to her Easter brunch. So we just ate together and hung out.
On the 4th Sherry, my mom and I went up to Jenkinson Lake for the day. We brought a lunch with us and swam all day.
This last Sunday we went up to Jenkinson Lake again. This time we stayed the night. Felecia went with us too.We had kind of a crazy night but other than that we had a lot of fun.

My Summer Vacation

This summer my mom and I took a trip to Bodega Bay. We went with friends from church and we camped for three nights. We played volley ball on the beach. We also did a sandcastle contest and some skits. My girls group (Eva, Grace, Alexis, and I) sang, "I'll Fly Away", and  Brother Luis sang with us. We also did a potluck which included some delicious Cuban food.

 I am back to school now and I'm in 11th grade. :) My favorite subject is math. I am also doing English,  Social Studies, and Life Skills. I am a TA (teacher's assistant) in Functional Science. I also have some new friends. Their names are Ashley (there are two) and Maddie.

I am excited for fall! Some of my favorite things to do during fall include going to Apple Hill and looking through the old shops, and raking leaves with Dad. My birthday is coming up too in October as well as Thanksgiving which means yummy food like turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie! :)

  Hope everyone had a good summer vacation and HAPPY FALL!

A Day at the Zoo

Yesterday, Mom and I went with Kathy, Franklin, Amber, and Emerson to the zoo. We saw giraffes, flamingos, tigers, parrots, monkeys swinging on ropes, zebras, kangaroos, and an ant eater,  We went into the reptile house also and saw snakes, lizards, and crocodiles.
Me, Amber, and Emerson rode on the merry-go-round. We also took a ride on the train with Kathy, Mom, and Franklin.  

Bulls Eye!

On Wednesday, Dad and I shot the bow and arrow in the backyard. It took a while for me to get the arrow in the target. We were about to go back to the house when we decided that we would do one more try and I hit the bulls eye.

My Awesome Vacation

Thursday I went with the young people to a cabin trip.
Friday Aunt Sherry did a nature scavenger hunt. It was a lot of fun. There were a lot stuff on the list. I had never been on a scavenger hunt before so I was really interested in it. I also helped with breakfast that morning for the first time.
Later I played volley ball . Then we did a game where we had to tie bricks to our shoes and walk across the lawn a certain amount of space and back to our place. That was a lot of fun too.
That night we did skits. I acted out in one. We did Little Red Riding Hood. I was the mom, Katey was Little Red Riding Hood, Brother Leonard was the wolf, and Brother Ross was Granny. It was a lot of fun.
Some other people did Peter Pan. Peter acted out Peter Pan and Alexis did Tinker Bell. Sherry was a crocodile.
Saturday we did our round of scriptures and testimonies.
On the way home from the cabin that day we stopped by Fosters Freeze and got ice cream. Then I took a good nap on the way to church.
Me and my girls group also sang two songs at the cabin. We Sang Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus and we also sang Awesome God. Then yesterday Brother Ross had the whole cabin crew sing Awesome God last night and had our group sing our solos.
I've had a good vacation.

My Awesome Vacation

I have been having an awesome time off of school!
Saturday, I practiced a few songs on the piano. I played Walk In The Woods, a song Shane made up when he was little which is what we call, "Shane's Song." I also played, Softly And Tenderly.
Sunday afternoon Eva and Grace came over. We went with my mom to the store. Then at home we ate lunch. We had taco salad. Then we did some exercise and polished our nails.
On Monday me, Eva, Grace, Felecia, Katey, Alexis, and Carol went to the mall together. We went to Payless and I got a new pair of tennis shoes for PE. I also got a new shirt. We also went to Starbucks on the way there.
After we shopped we went out to eat for lunch. Then we went to the mall again. LOL! Then we went out to eat at Red Robin.
Last night Me and Felecia went to McDonald's to eat. While we were there Shane came in and ate with us. He said that he saw that we were there so he thought he'd come in and eat with us. It was so fun. We just chatted as we ate. It was like a sibling night out. LOL! I have had a great vacation.
