My Video Teachers!!!!

Here they are!!!!!! Ok, we do the ABeka cuuriculem, which I have said, and we do the videos. So the teachers which some of them are awesome teachers, are sort of like celebrities(especially Mr. McBride!). So a few hours before graduation we had a luncheon and we met all the teachers(except Mrs. Schmuck who is the BEST English teacher) which was really awesome. So hope y'all enjoy them!!!

Me with the BEST History teacher, Mr.McBride!!!

Me with the 11th grade English teacher, Mrs. Thompson.

HE'S OURS!!!!!!!!!!

Before when I posted my cat pictures, I said that we have an "adopted" cat outside, well... he IS ours!!! Let me explain, about 8 or 9 years ago we had a cat named Muff, well as we usually do, we go to Michigan every year. So we dropped Muff, Gloves, and Mittens at our friends house, and the dad of our friends, Mr. Newborn, opened the cat carrier door. Well, Muff and Gloves ran, so we never saw them again. Then when we returned from Pensacola we saw a orange, fluffy cat outside, and y'all will never guess who it was... our Muff! We didn't find out until today. So he MIGHT come in, if I clean him real good. he was also my mom's cat, but I think he likes me better because I feed him. But isn't that soooooo weird that our cat found its way home from many miles away? I just hope he'll be able to come in. I'll tell y'all if he does and soon I'll post a picture of him. I better go. Don't forget to check back for the Pensacola pics that I'll post soon! ;)
Y'all have a good day!

Howdy!!!!!

Howdy Y'all!!!! Wednesday night was soooooooo FUN!!! Krista spent the night and we had soooo much fun!! We watched Seven Brides for Seven Brothers over and over again!! Then we tried to do her puzzle, since last time she spent the night, which was in October, we finished my puzzle while listening to the CD "America, Will You Turn Back to God?" (Thanks Katie for singing it!!) ;) Oh, and by the way, Katie, our favrite song was "Value of One". Anyway, we did the puzzle because it's sorta, now, a tradition. We never did finish the puzzle because it was to big. But it was still soooo much fun. Of course, when you put two giggly friends together it gets very funny. Well, I guess I should go! Bye y'all.

Memorial Day

It's Memorial Day and the church had a picnic at the park in Copperas Cove. I think this has been the funniest Memorial Day ever!!! Lucy and Jenna(two ladys from the church) have two sons, Lucy wanted to get pictures of those two. Well, Mason(Lucy's son, she also has a daughter, Cheyenne) had a basketball, but to get Ethan's(Jenna's baby) attention for the picture of him, Lucy gave him the ball. Ethan loved to throw it, but one time he threw it, it went right into the creek! Now, to make the story short I tried to get it, and on one of the many attempts I finally reached it, but the branch I was standing on, well... it kinda SNAPPED!!! And guess were I went? Into the creek!!! I was soaked(but it sure felt good)!!! Mrs. Strickland took a picture of me so if I could get it from Issy I'll try to post it. But the good thing is, my dad took me home and I got into dry clothes. Then later on in the day some people played kickball. I loved it, I haven't played kickball since 4th grade!!! The one thing that made it more fun was that I got to play BAREFOOTED!!!!!! My tenneshoes were soaked, so I wore my flip flops. It was really hot, which made me want to jump into the creek again!!!!!!! I had lots of fun today!! The only thing that didn't make any fun was, when I fell into the creek, I scraped my leg. I better go! Stay tuned for the professional pics of my family. Bye!!

Sunday Evening

Hi! We had a wonderful sermon tonight. Pastor Strickland talked about memorials since tomorrow is Memorial Day. He said that when we die, people shouldn't remember us with bad thoughts(I hope y'all realize that what I just said was a paraphrase not his exact words) . Anyway, before service, Mr. Hammonds let us "young people" sing. We sang "Unbounded Grace" which is a really pretty song, but we "young people"butchered it. OK so we didn't exactly butcher it, but it sounded really bad!!!! Our practice was a whole lot better!!!! I better go!!! Tomorrow, don't forget to remember our troops!! I'll post some professional family pics soon. See y'all later!

Meet My Animals

Hey Y'all!! I am posting pictures of my beloved animals today. I have 4 cats and 1 dog. We also have a "adopted" cat outside. He's orange and fluffy, we call him Muff. The cats names are: Taz, Hook, Oreo, & Eddie and the dog's name is Sadie. So here they are. Hope Y'all enjoy!!



This is Taz. He always has attitude.:)




The little thing is Eddie when he was a baby, but the black cat is Shadow. He ran away in October last year and he was my baby!!


This is Eddie now! He has gotten bigger and meaner!!


This is our lazy cat Hook. His tail is hooked at the end so we named him Hook. He's dad's cat and very lovey.



This is my shy cat Oreo. He is VERY fat.




This is our old dog Sadie. She is a Golden Retriever and about 13 years old!
