In Honor and Remembrance of the Children and Teachers of Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Twas' 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38,
When 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven's gate.
Their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
They could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
They were filled with such joy, they didn't know what to say.
They remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
"Where are we?" asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
"This is heaven." declared a small boy. "We're spending Christmas at God's house."
When what to their wondering eyes did appear,
But Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
Then He opened His arms and He called them by name,
And in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring.
Those children all flew into the arms of their King,
And as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
One small girl turned and looked at Jesus' face.
And as if He could read all the questions she had,
He gently whispered to her, "I'll take care of Mom and Dad."
Then He looked down on earth, the world far below,
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe.
Then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
"Let My power and presence re-enter this land!"
"May this country be delivered from the hands of fools."
"I'm taking back my nation. I'm taking back my schools!"
Then He and the children stood up without a sound.
"Come now my children, let me show you around."
Excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
All displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
And I heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
"In the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT."

Getting Ready For Thanksgiving

   Long time no post. :) So Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I'm super excited. Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday. Christmas is my first of course. :) I love Thanksgiving because it's a special time where you sit down, and are thankful for everything you have. And you can enjoy time with your family or friends. Plus, you get extremely yummy food! :) I am just so excited to eat and spend time with my family. My Aunt, Uncle, and two 1/2 cousins are coming from Kentucky to spend Thanksgiving with us. Haha, do you like how I said 1/2? My aunt is pregnant just to let you know. :) I can't wait for Thanksgiving! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving too!

School Is Suprisingly Okay. :)

    So school has started. This Monday is going to be the third week of school. -And here's the weird thing, its actually okay. I have a really good teacher and I also have friends in my class. I have actually been learning, :) and its not that bad. I just have a lot of homework. Like a lot. I have to know the whole USA map by this Tuesday, and I only know like 14 states. Thats not good. :( So I really should be studying right now...but oh well. I have time. I really miss summer though. I miss being able to sleep in, and doing whatever I want without having a schedule.
     The super cool thing about school is that 5th graders get their own school emails. Usually you get one in middle school, but they changed it this year. Yay! :) So yeah, that's cool. Anyways, school is heading off to a good start. Hopefully it stays that way. :)

Gatlinburg

           Just got back from Gatlinburg the other day, summer vacations are the best! We rented a cabin in the mountains, we usually do every few years. We were going to plan a summer vacation to the beach, but it didn't work out. So we decided to take some time off, relax, and have some fun in Gatlinburg. But my oldest sister couldn't come because of her work. :( We did lots of fun activities, we shopped around, went on the Ski Lift, spent a day at Wonder Works, (The house of illusions) went to DollyWood, Dixie Stampede, and my favorite, ATV riding. Okay, so I have never ridden an ATV before, so my sister and I rode the smallest one. :) (the easiest) while my other sister rode the medium one, and my dad rode the biggest. My mom was too scared to drive one... ;) so she stayed home at the cabin. Anyways, so when the people gave direction of how to drive one, I had no idea what they were talking about. Thank goodness my family was in a separate group from everyone else....So when they told our group to go, I was first in line and I had no idea to what I was doing. So..I just sat there trying to talk over all the engines telling the other helper that I didn't know what to do. So yeah, he helped me. Then we started our journey through the mountains. At first, I was horrible. I was really slow, and I couldn't get up some hills...so out of no where I just stopped in the middle of a hill and I slowly started rolling backwards...luckily our guide person helped me when ever I got stuck. Really I was just afraid to push the gas harder. :) So I got through the gas part, but then there is the break part. We were going down a steep hill and suddenly my sister that was in front of me stopped in the middle of the track while I am going full speed down the hill. Apparently her hand was "Cramping up" So she needed to stop and stretch her hand. :/ Seriously? I know. So I yelled at her but she didn't hear me, I tried to push the brake as hard as I could, but it was too late. Luckily it wasn't a big crash, or else I'd have to pay for it. But our ATV's barely touched. After a few minutes, I was a pro. :) It was a beautiful track, with lots of trees and mountains. And it wasn't a hot day either. When it was time to go, I didn't want to get off. :) But I had too....I want to go riding again it was soo fun! Now I feel like I can drive a car....Not really. :) But you know, I have had lots of dreams lately where I have driven my own car...its weird. Oh! I almost forgot to tell about river walking. :) Not the best experience...So my family and I packed water shoes so we could go river walking. At first it was fine, I mean the river had some rocks, but it wasn't that bad. But a few minutes later I couldn't walk. There were rocks EVERYWHERE! Big rocks, little rocks, sharp rocks, slippery rocks....Probably every kind of rock there is in the world. Anyways, we were making our way up the river and saw tons of crayfish. It was pretty cool. So we were making bets of who we thought was going to fall first. Of course we did not want to get wet, we didn't have our suits on. I though that my mom or dad were going to fall. Everyone else bet on me. :) Of course, I fell first. Why me? I wasn't completely soaked, but I was pretty wet. Then my sister fell in. :) hehe...Then me again. Seriously, I think somethings wrong with me. This time I was soaking wet. Up to my neck. :/ Not fun....I was just about to give up, then finally we decided to head back to our car. My mom suggested we should just float back to the car. :) But I was already drying off. It was pretty fun, & really hard. :) Gatlinburg is really fun. You should try taking a vacation there. :)

My Birthday Week :)

     Yay! This week is my birthday week, and im so very excited. :) I love having family over to celebrate, and I have been waiting forever to turn 11. It seems so old, but its really not. :) It seems like just yesterday I was waiting to turn 10.
     I can't wait to eat my yummy Puddles! Here's the thing, I am not a fan of cake...So I always have Puddles for my birthday instead of a cake. :) I love Puddles, it is so yummy. It isn't actually Puddles, or even called that. I really have no idea what they are called...something fancy. But we made up that  name because the first time we tried it, (I was so little I don't even remember) we were at a party outside and it was so hot that it melted and looked like puddles. Mmmm, just thinking about that makes my stomach growl, even though I just had a big bowl of chili. Puddles is chocolate with crackers and some kind of cream...I really have no idea whats actually inside that creamy chocolatey stuff. But its good. :) I'm extremely excited for this dress that my mother is getting for me. (that I picked out) Its soo cute!!!! And this adorable orange purse that my sisters are splitting for me. (i picked that out too) Anyways, I just can't wait. :)

Summers Been Great

      So far, summer has been pretty good. We have our pool set up, and I have been relaxing all summer.  It was my sisters birthday the other day, so that was pretty fun. I made her a painting of an anime girl, that is supposed to be her.  I also gave her a note and a home-made gift card to Star Bucks, paid by me. :)     Anyways, my oldest sister is leaving to Africa next week for a Missions Trip, and I am very nervous for her. So if you could pray for her that would be great. :) Also next week I am going to a day camp for a week called K.O.S, short for Kids On Stage. I've gone for about 4 or 3 years i think, and it is super fun! :)  I'm taking four classes... Musical Theater, Drawing, Dance, and Improve Acting. I am really excited! And at the end of the week we perform what we learned. It awesome, I love it. Oh! And I almost forgot! I cut off my hair. :) Don't worry, not all of it. It used to be soooooo long! Like at my belly button, so now its about 3 or 4 inches shorter. So yeah, summer has been great. And I am sensing it will be an awesome summer. ;)

Summers Here

Oh my gosh, can you believe it? Today was the last day of fourth grade. I'm like freaking out with excitement right now if you can't notice...We had a picnic today, and it was only a half a day of school. Though I really don't know why we even had school today because we didn't learn anything. Oh well. ;)

    I am really happy that school is out and it's summer, but its kinda sad to think that some of your friends are not going to see you again for the rest of your life. Even when some people that I don't hang out with a lot move, I get completely upset and hug them until they tell me they have to leave. It's like a family. A school family. When one child leaves, the family is broken. Then another child joins and the family is reunited again. Though it's difficult to explain how I felt today, it was a day with so many emotions. Happiness, sadness, excitement, and much more that I can't put into words..It's a day like no other. Summer is here. 11 years will pass.

Can't wait...

    I can't believe it, its already late April! Its almost summer, everyone! Summer. Oh my, I just love summer. Don't you? Summer is my time. My time to do whatever I want to. To spend a day outside, exploring. Or a day in my bed with a book in my face. I just like it when I can do whatever I really want to do. Not having to go to school, or finish a project for school clubs. Let me tell you, I'm a busy girl. I have school, homework, softball, sketchbook club, my own blog that I can never seem to keep up with, and my own home projects. Like watching T.V, haha, or having my free time with books. And I love reading, but sometimes there are periods when I really have no time for reading, or all the time I can get. But the weird thing is that I usually want to read when I'm busy, and don't want to read when I have nothing else to do. My life is complicated, I'm just trying to keep up with it. :)
        But I think I have a pretty good look in my future. Maybe I want to be on Broadway, but I also have many other things in plan. I'm going to be an illustrator for kids books and stuff, and study literature in college. Then I will write my own books, (kids & adults) and also illustrate them. By the money on my books, I will buy an apartment and find a husband. We will plan a life together, for example get a house in Hawaii. :) Then we will have 4 girls all spaced apart by 2 years. Haha, I already know how my life will lay out. Even though my life will probably be nothing like that, I still have Summer to dream about it. :) I can't wait..... :)

Tornado Warning

Today was a beautiful day, until I saw the lightning. Letting you know I am quite safe, maybe a little storm with a small chance of tornado, but for some of my readers you could be under a big tornado warning. I hope that all of my readers are safe, everyone too. I am praying for you, and hoping the storms will fade and pass.
When I look at all of the beautiful things in life, I remember all of the bad things too. But don't give up. I am sure you will be fine, and the storm will settle soon.
Wishing for the best,

SNOW DAY! (without the snow...)

Yay!!! When my favorite person, Carole Birdsong called last night, I screamed!!! No school! :D Finally I get a break....even though Christmas break was a few weeks ago. :) Did I tell you about Christmas break? I don't think I did....So my family, like my whole family. Cousins, uncles, aunts, grandparents, everyone, went to Colorado for our family vacation! We rented this HUMUNGOUS house on the mountains, and let me tell you, its the prettiest, biggest, tallest house I've ever been in. It had four or five floors! Its too hard to count...But it was soo fun! We got tons of food, and really sat around and talked. :) The first day, we went skiing. Not a good idea. I fell like.....twelve times probably. Us kids didn't go to the ski lessons, so daddy thought he could teach us. Well, he did fine. Except with me....When I fell, i twisted my leg in a gross position and it hurt!!!! Really bad, I didn't know how to get out. But lets skip to the next day...We really just hung out the next day. We tried to go sledding in our backyard, but oh my gosh, I have never stepped in snow that deep! It went up to my knees, and I am 5 foot 2 and 1/2. So I think I lost 8 pounds going up the hill. Not kidding. Well maybe a little.... :) So when my sister sled down the hill, she hit a bump and flew off! And her sled was still going! We yelled for her to go get it because if it goes on, it will sled off the hill! She ran as fast as she could in tons of snow, and dived because it was a few feet from sliding off the cliff. Good thing she got it, or else she would have to pay for it. Its not our sled....But of course we went sledding again because our cousin hadn't gotten there yet and he wanted to go. So we did. The same thing happened again, except it actually fell off the cliff. :) Man, my butt is still sore from hitting a log while I was sledding with my cousin. Anyways, almost every night we went in the hot tub while it was freezing! And I got dared to roll in the snow for five seconds then jump back in the tub. I did it. Three times. :) The next day we went shopping and I got the cutest bag in the world! It was 30$ but I had to get it. And I got a cute Colorado t-shirt. The second to last day was the best, we went tubing. :) It was soooooo fun!!!! Its on this super, super, steep hill that is really long. The first time we all went together, except for my 13 year old sister and cousin, they probably thought its embarrassing...But I screamed, "OH MY GOSH! THIS IS AWESOME! THIS IS AWESOME! AHHHH!" The whole ride down. :) Even my grandparents went! :D It was great, except that I couldn't walk very well because my butt got sore. Okay, I have hurt my butt four times this year. ;p Yeah, I know....But it was really fun. (not hurting my butt but tubing) (haha i said but but :) ) Anyways, I'm so sad that I had to go. :( I miss that place. I started my new year there, and I'll never end it there. :( Oh well. I'm just glad its a snow day. But I'm also sad because there isn't any snow...Well, thanks anyways Carole Songbird! The birds are singing...
