Dance

My mom wants me to take dance lessons!! I really don't want to, dance is SO not my thing! People just show off and its NOT a team sport. Plus, I'm not the world's best dancer either. My friend who does dance showed me a few stretches that you're supossed to do, and they KILL! I'm still recovering from trying to do some myself. Today our visitors are coming from Hong Kong, China. Yippee. I like having visitors except I don't know the company that well and, well, their kinda awkward. We're going canoeing and renting a pontoon boat up at Higgin's Lake so I hope that will be fun. Hopefully the visitors will adjust to "nature" since they live in a huge CITY like Hong Kong. If I get bored I will always have my trusty book. On Monday my friend came over for a sleepover and I watched Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest for the 2nd time, and it was her 1st time. I love that movie! The second time around I understood it more. Kitkat was asking every 3 seconds what the heck was going on so I'm glad I've seen it before. Tomorrow is my last double header softball game, so wish me luck!

Double Header

Last nights double-header softball game was really tiring. I did okay, I guess. My mom said when I was last at bat that I would get 20 bucks if I hit it to the green, and I did! The first game we won 15-8 and the second we tied 14-14. The first game I pitched every inning and struck out 6 batters. A lot of people hit off me though because I pitch fast and when people hit it it goes far. The last game I was 1st base, shortstop, and the last 2 innings I was catcher. I thought I would hate it with all that gear on but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The really bad thing about it though is that the facemask is so sweaty. Nasty! When my family got home from the softball games we had cake for my dad's bday(double chocolate, which I made, YUM!) and opened presents. My present to my dad was the cake, because I couldn't think of anything else. Tonight I'm going to the Dixie Chicks concert in Detroit. I'm sooooooooo excited even though I don't really know them that well but I just love the concert atmosphere.

Higgin's Lake and More...

Last Sunday I went to Higgin's Lake to swim and hang out. The lake is really pretty and you can walk out really farr and it's still shallow!! The only bad part about it is...the water's freezing!! The next day I went to Detroit with my cousins and they had to leave on a plane back to Kansas. Tuesday we spent just cleaning the house for our next guests to come...a person who my Dad has known since pre-school and his wife and daughter. Wednesday I had to go to swimming in the morning, viola lessons, and then to a swim meet! By the end of the day I was pretty pooped out but I still had to do chores before the Hubbards would come later that night. On Thursday we swam because it was like 90 degrees out!! My girl Kasey came over a little later that day and we went to Parkside Market and saw kitkat's bf there! He hasn't talked to her or seen her since like the last day of school. We called kitkat and told her. We planned the next day to go to the Plymouth pool and see him. The day was supossed to work out perfectly, but it didn't because Elliot (the bf) broke up w/ kitkat over a text message because she was too clingy. NOT TRUE!! It started raining which fit in with the mood. She went home and my parents had a dinner party and banned us to downstair where she forbidded us to go upstairs while the party was happening. It was boring watching movie after movie and finally we all fell asleep. The next thing I knew I was waking up in my own bed at 10:30 in the morning and now I am wrapping up this blog.

Hey, I just got back from Springhill and it was the best experience of my life!!! Everything and everyone is so fun. My personal favorite was the blobs, like this big air thing on the water that you jump on to make the person on the front go flying! Then you go up to the front of it and get blobbed! It was so fun because my counselor, Jaime, blobbed me and I went sky high! The 3hr horses was more fun than I thought it was going to be. My wrangler, Amy, was really nice and patient. My horse's names were Ozzie, a white horse with black spots and is a pretty good horse except that he loves to eat and pass gas too much! The other horse's name was Strawberry and so was sooooooooo beautiful. She has a strawberry blonde mane and tail and is a pro in the ring and on the trail! We learned how to post, trot, and canter! That's in between a trot and gallop (I think that's how you spell it) and is really fast. It's too bad nobody can learn how to gallop at Springhill. The other activites we did were mountan biking, the gusher, (water slide into a lake) the zipline, which was SWEET!!!, and tons of other stuff too. The food, though, was HORRIBLE and the moment my mom picked me up we went to McDonald's for some good food!! It was kind of ironic though because at the same time we were watching "Super Size Me", a really disgusting movie!!!! Today my cousins and I are going to see "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest". I CAN'T WAIT!!!!! I hope I can come to Springhill next year!!!

First Blog Entry!!

This is my first blog entry...yay!! I'm sooo excited...in like 24 hours I'm going to Springhill-a Christian camp-with my buddies Kathryn and Ali. We're doing 3hr horseback riding...I hope that'll be fun! It's mmy first time going on an overnight camp w/no parents so I'm SO ready for the freedom! I need to finish packing though. I'm bringing tons of stuff. I wish I could bring my dog, I'm going to miss him so much! On Thursday my softball team had 2 games and won both agaisnt a good travel team. I pitched the first inning and did okay, I struck out 5 batters total, witch isn't that bad. I hit a double into the outfield. Overall I did mediocre. I like to play pitcher, 1st base, and shortstop. I wish I was doing softball at Springhill, but my friend Kathryn hates softball and Ali isn't too fond of it either. Ali and I really wanted to do water sports cuz like college students throw you around so fast on the tubes! Kathryn was scared of the lake water though cuz she thought there were leeches in there. Ya right! Yesterday I went to the Country Club with Kathryn (she brought me as her guest) and we had fun swimming and tanning. She got a new phone...a motorola razor! It's awesome because it can record songs and then you can put them as ringtones for people. For when I call her it's "Buttons" by the Pussycat Dolls. I WANT A PHONE SO BAD!!! Anyway, today my Dad and I are going to go to a dog show at 1:00 and then to dinner and then to a movie. He never used to do this stuff with me but since my Mom and siblings are out of town, I get the good treatment! This morning I am soooo sore because yesterday my dad and I went on a 3 mile run. I was so proud of myself! Then my dad brought me bike in his truck while he was going to work and dropped me off at family video. I got Pride & Prejudice, (I <3> that movie!) and Eight Below. I loved that movie!!! It made me cry. Overall yesterday was fun.
