oh the joy of being young

I was going back and looking at some photos of me and boy I was so cute. I was stress free, not worrying about what people thought about me, I thought I was the coolest little girl in the world. I wish sometimes that I could go back to that I stress out a ton, and since camp I am trying not to think badly about others, myself, and careless about what others think about me because I know what God thinks of me. Stress is something I can try to help but sometimes I don’t even realize I am stressed out. Here is a couple pictures from Hawaii when I was 2 and Haleigh was about 5 months.

It has been a while

Sorry everyone for not writing sooner. I have been really busy with camping, babysitting, and being at the pool. I will write another post about camping but I can’t upload pictures from camping because I have a dead battery and I need to get new ones, sorry about that! As many of you already know it that I love children and I love babysitting so sometimes when I am over my head stressed out with already babysitting I will take on more jobs and get more stressed. I have a couple pictures of the little ones I babysit and I will add more because I am babysitting again today if I can upload them. Here are a few pictures.

A Week at Camp and a Birthday

My sister Haleigh and I got a week at camp for our birthdays from our grandparents. We had such a blast from white water rafting to shaving cream fights and bible study; we had a busy week. The first day was pretty rainy so we didn’t get to have the camp picture until later, we mostly listened to a ton of camp rules and made a couple of friends. We went white water rafting on the third day which was amazing. The first time we went down the East Race – just down the first ramp we tipped and so we held on the raft and floated for a ways then the life guard threw the rope to us and thank God we had two faculty members in the raft because Violet the faculty member caught it and let go of the raft when she was supposed to hold on while they pulled us all is, so now it was only the 4 of us and more than half way through we finally caught a rope. That was the craziest time down! The rest of the time we made it all the way without tipping. The next morning we got up had devotions and went down to breakfast and then we made our way out to the field where we all got a nylon hose and an egg and the faculty got noodles that you swim with and we put the nylon with the egg in it over our head and ran around like crazy people while the faculty chased up and hit us in the head with the noodles. Over all it was an amazing week. I came back changed from a spiritual stand point and it was very fun!

This is Sam, Landon, and Derek the last day of camp.

Here is Haleigh and I right after the awesome shaving cream fight.

Haleigh always has a goofy pose but I guess I don’t have much room to talk.

On July 1st I finally turned 14. I couldn’t wait for my birthday! I had wanted a blog for a while and last night I said to my dad, “Can I please get a blog?” He told me to ask my mom and they said that they had to talk about it and they came to the conclusion that I would be able to get one! My birthday went really well though. I had two of my good friends Taylor and Kaeleigh over and we went to the pool had pizza then swam for a bit. Then I opened presents and had a delicious “White Chocolate Rasberry” cake. Then Taylor went home and Kaeleigh and the rest of my family went out to Bobarinos in the B.O.B. The food was so tasty.

I was really excited to find out that my friend got me 4 pairs of earrings!

My super yummy cake! mmmmmm!

Here are the adorable girls at the B.O.B., boy are we smokin’ hot!
