Tomorrow, as some of you may know, I will be in my very first horse show!!! It is held at Olde Hope Farms ( www.oldehopefarms.com ) and I will be entering the Elementary Division in Evening Shade III on August 15. If you go to their website you will see the words "our 2008 eventing schedule". Beneath that it says August 15 2008- Evening Shade III. If you click on "times" right below it it will bring up a different page. Click "times" again at the bottom of the page. Then scroll down until you see boxes. Go five boxes down and I am number 64. The horses name is Know No Limits, and they spelled my name wrong. It's a lot of steps to follow, but I think it makes everything look so professional when you see my name on the website. I can't wait until tomorrow. I'm not sure how I will sleep tonight. I will post pictures tomorrow, and so will my mom.

I was so excited to finally go to RVR - I have waited SOOOOOO long for camp. My really good friend Jordan was able to go to -we are both crazy about horses. Here are some pictures my mom took. I had the most AMAZING ever time - the best week of my life. I will definitely be going back every summer - and when I'm old enough I will be a counselor there. I could live there.

Since everyone has been nagging me about updating my blog, I will. Today me, Hannah and our neighbor Lindsey decided that we wanted to bake a nice batch of homemade cookies. So we pulled out all the ingredients and started mixing them together. It took a while because I rarely cook and I had no idea where anything in our kitchen is. When we finally found the brown sugar, which by the way has a tendency to blend in with its surroundings we followed the directions on the back of the chocolate chip bag perfectly, except for spilling flour on the floor and almost forgetting the sugar. The batter was done, and we where about to put it on the tray but first we had to taste test the cookie dough, and it tasted horrible!!! Hannah said it tasted like play dough ( I wonder how she knows what play dough tastes like? hmm... ). We found out the flour we used was very very old, and after a few desperate tries to save the cookie dough from being disposed of, it didn't work. Our cookie dough ended up down the drain. The moral of this story? Never bake cookies without abult supervision ( or maybe always check the expiration on the flour bag before you dump it in the bowl ).

You might have already seen these pics on my moms blog, but they are so amazing that I had to put them on mine. Its called heat lightning, which is pretty much cloud to cloud lightning. The weird part is that you can see the lightning but you cant hear any thunder. I looked it up on wikipedia and it said that either there is a thunderstorm that is too far away to hear (which doesn't make sense because if you see the lightning you should hear the thunder) or the air is too dense and traps the sound, which kinda makes sense, but I still cant fully comprehend a silent, rainless thunderstorm. Mom tried to get some pictures, but they didn't turn out so we found these on Google.

Last week the 6th and 7th grades went on a 3 day long field trip to River Valley Ranch, home of about 60 horses, 3 half mile long zip lines, 1 quarter mile long zip line, high and low ropes courses and much more! There was beautiful weather (until Friday when it rained) and the talks were amazing. Here are some of the many pics I took.

Well, today I got my braces. It took FOREVER to get them on! Then they had to suck the spit out of my mouth it was not a relaxing or enjoyable experience but I had Maddy by my side umm just... well being annoying jk!! Then they put this wierd thing around my lips and personally I think I looked like a duck. The cement tasted horrible and it hurt when they put the rubber band color things on. Then we went to Boston Market and I got mashed potatoes(yummy yummy in my tummy!lol) and macaroni and cheese. We went to the mall and bought mom some jeans. Maddy kicked a soccer ball the whole time in Old Navy and ran into people who looked at her like she was wierd or something (now where would they get that idea??). We went to the bookstore and got frappacinos(once again, yummy in my tummy!)

Yes, we are off school for snow. So if we don't have school, why isn't there snow? We haven't gotten a decent snow all winter! I really want to go outside and go sledding and fun stuff like that. Maybe this time the snow will stick for more then a day and a half!
