I got back from Cross County Camp on Thursday. It was a very good four days of running. Its amazing what the human body is capable of doing. I was able to run so much and because I was around people who all love to run, it was very easy and enjoyable. Montana is so pretty too! On a run called Trail 544, I ran up to a part of a Mountain to where I could see forever. It was beautiful! I wish there were places like that to run here...and not just the roads. But I have to say, as fun as XC camp was, I am excited to be back home with my friends and family...but I leave for EFY in Tacoma on Monday...so home will be short lived....I love summer.

Yesterday was a great last day of school!! Me and my friend left early becuase we had our final done in the first 5 min. (we just turned in a project that we had done earlier) We went to the spiny park for a bit, then we went to Wal-Mart to buy toilet paper, then we T-Pd by friend Rachels house.."in the broad daylight!" It was fun. Then I went and water ballooned middle schoolers as they were leaving school. We just drove around and pelted people..it was funny! Then we went swimming, took a break and played Basketball, and swam after that for an even longer time. Then we played volleyball, then I went to a BBQ, then to my friend Kates going away party. Im very sad...she left to go back to Russia this morning. We took some pictures, and went swimming again. To finish the night I spent the night at Macies and we fell asleep to The Holliday. I was going to run this morning, but yesterday, when we were playing bball I think the combonation of the heat and me playing with no shoes gave me this huge nasy blister on the very bottom of my foot. Its pretty gross looking. But today is the first official day of summer 08 and soon Im going off to go play Dodgeball. Im so excited that summer is FINALLY here!!!

So this weekend I babysat these 6 year old twins while there mom was having a baby. I didn't care doing it for free..I understand completely, but I would have liked a thank you. And plus I was feeling really selfish and I wanted to have fun last night instead of watch the stupid Incredibles and listening to "Gina lets do this....lets do this...lets do this." I cant even tell them apart!! I really just realized how much more I like taking care of kids I really care about...like my nieces and nephews...who are back in Seattle...which is very sad becuase I really like having them here. Even though sometimes I would get annoyed by the stupidest things...like when I was trying to study for my math final, Abby kept telling me to come dance with her..and I really wanted to, I just got annoyed that things are so carefree for her..while I was studying. But I guess being a 4 year old would get boring after awhile...so its good that we grow up. Anyways...onto Mom. She cracks me up. As I was cleaning out my room she would look at every piece of clothing that I put in the "give to goodwill" pile...as if I had made a mistake in putting it in there...but I know I will actually grow up to be like her..in some ways. That leads me to my messy room. I have been cleaning it since 10 this morning...and Im only 1/2 done. I really dont want to do it anymore...which is why I am writing this. But its been a good weekend so far..I got to go to Silverwood randomly with a friend on Thu...scrap booked on Fri, and tonight Im gonna blade it up. and also only one more monday of school..and then SCHOOLS OUT FOR THE SUMMER!!!

Yesterday Rachel and Jeanie came over to hang out...and we ended up reading my old journals from middle school. Goodness those are good for some laughs. I cant believe how much has changed!! "ooo..today was the best day ever! Micah said hi to me!!" That and all the "I heart S.O.S." Why does middle school have to be such an awkward stage?? I looked back at my yearbook too...since when is "someday you will be a lesbian model" an actual funny thing to write on a yearbook?! But I thought I was pretty cool..so thats all that matters I guess...I mean, I did have relationships that lasted for what?? One day...maybe a whole week!!?? Only heaven knows how I had friends back then! =] But I am sure I will be able to look back at things I have done in High School too...heck...I already do. I just thought I would write that though...just so you could know that I am slowly growing up....I cant wait till my clothes are used for future dress ups!!

This weekend went nothing like planned. I was planning on getting a lot of homework done...temporarily dyeing my hair with purple streaks (just for fun)...work on my projects, move my stuff from down downstairs to upstairs...and clean my Papas house...but unfortunately, my brother and law got in a very bad dirt bike accident, so him and my sister went up to a hospital in Seattle, leaving their four amazing kids with us. I spent almost all day with them yesterday, and I had a blast! We colored for a very long time, did a craft, played dress up, and took pictures. I even got to have a little sleep over with them! =] And this morning we all went to church together. I now have a little preview of what Kareen went through when she was the oldest and had lots of little siblings at church(even though I know her kids are way easier to take care of than any of us)..I've never really experienced having lots of little siblings, so it was really fun! Goodness, they are so cute!! Nate all dressed up and "reverent", Abby in her beautiful braid grandma did, and Claire all snuggled up sleeping on my lap during Young Womens. I even got to take Claire to nursery..and when Papa tried to take her away from me, she started crying!! =] And now I think I might paint their toenails or something while the boys are playing downstairs. However, even though this weekend has been great for me, I'm really sad that it came about how it did, with Jeff getting hurt and all. I really can't believe it happened, and I really hope he gets better quickly because these kids need their mommy and daddy safe.

I was just studying for my math test tomorrow..when, for the one millionth time I realized that I really don't like math. Some people say that it is fun, like a puzzle or something, or they like it because there is only one answer. Well, who only wants to be able to have one answer be right?! That means if you don't get that one answer, you get it wrong, and your grade, like mine, is screwed! And also it takes forever to study for...and once I get to the test, my mind totally blanks, so its like I spent hours studying for nothing! But no that I am done venting about math, I will go study some more. And also, if I really wanted to do a puzzle, I wouldn't do math, I would actually do a puzzle. Who would have though.

I don't think I can wait any longer for school to get out. I am so ready for days to be full of fun!! I am so excited to be able to jump on the tramp with water under it for hours, to go blading, to go to camps, to run with cross country, hang out with my friends, and redecorate my room. I am really sad that lots of my senior friends will no longer be at school with me though. Sharlee, Rachel, Blaine, Mallissa, Stephen, Todd, Stephani, Kensie, and Kate. We still have the summer though..so I will have to hang out with them a lot. I decided that I couldnt ask for better friends. We have so much fun together, and I never feel pressured to do anything bad. But back to summer..I really cant wait..I guess I should get back to my English project that I have spent all day on. =]

This weekend was great! It started out with decorating shirts for Battle Of the Bands. Macie, Kaitlyn, Lauren and I spent some time in Kaitlyns garage making nifty shirts supporting our friends band called "Rheem". The actual battle of the bands was with Mr. Southridge..and it was very fun. After the "concert/competition" me and the rest of the groupies (haha) went and had a mini bonfire. I would have to say that just making the shirts,dressing up crazy, and painting our legs was the best part. On Saturday I woke up to Hutnanies. Those things are delish. I made a schedule with the times I planned to complete each activity at...but Lo and Behold..I think I only got half of them done. I did get to run, and bike, and watch my little brothers baseball game though. I also made my friend Sharlee a UNICORN CROSSING street sign..with my moms help. It turned out great! At the party we did all the things that Unicorns do. We roller bladed all over town (3 miles covered prob) eat dessert/fruit pizza, and had a dance party in SPANDEX! It was a good night..even if I did get some MAJOR blisties...that I popped this morning. The water inside them squirted out quite nicely if I do say so myself. =](If you click on the picture..you can see it all blown up)
And this morning I went to church. I colored a page out of an Arthur coloring book. I know the whole Arthur theme song by the way...we sang it a few times while blading. =] Actual church was good. In Young Womens we had a lesson on missions. I had already seriously considered going on one...and now I want to even more. I think somewhere really pretty in the states would be cool...like Rhode Island or something. Now I have lots of homework to do, a violin performance to watch, and seminary gradeeation to go watch. Its been a very good weekend. =]
