The choir I am in participated in a choir festival today. It was fun! We were at a church from 8:45 am to 3:00 pm. Quite a long day! :) But we all had a great time. Fifteen of us did it (there are 18 in our choir). It was great hanging out with some girls (me being surrounded with brothers and all:). We range from eighteen to six, and I think that it's wonderful that we all can spend a day together, everyone getting along and stuff. It was funny changing into our performance clothes in the bathroom, with ten girls chit chattering away. We got a little loud at one point. :) After it was all over, Moriah, Faith, Abi and I were looking for our parents, and Moriah ran strait between a lady who was filming (for TV!) one of the choir directors and her choir! :D Abi and I decided to not go running on to television, and took a different route. Lol.

Now I sit here, worn out. Looking forward to church tomorrow, rubbing my aching feet (you wanted to know that, i know you did) and, um, typing!

and so, goodnight.

Thank You!

To all of you invisible friends,
Who stop by,
Leaving an encouraging word,
Or a simple hello.
Thank you.
And if you don't say anything,
Please do!
I would love to "meet" you.
Love, Me

sick :(

That's what I am.
Sick of being sick!
And three of my brothers.
For a week now,
starting with Ethan.
Then Sam,
then me,
then Joe.
Fever, aching body,
sick eyes, and a horrible cough.
Today we seem a little better.
But the allergies!
Once the sickness is subsiding a bit,
our allergies seem real bad today.
At least mine.
Sweet spring.
But it feels more like summer.
We have our air conditioner on!
For the last few days
all I have done is lay on the couch.
Watching movies,
eating when I could.
I must get better.

belated Easter post

Sam enjoying some "tandy".

On Sat. we went to some friends' grandparents house. There were lots of family's that we knew their. The older kids hid, then the young ones hunted. :) After the hunt the dads and kids all went down to the river and sling shotted (how do you say that???) rocks into the river. My Dad and two other dads shot one all the way across the river! Then the kids all waded and got wet.

On Sunday we had a wonderful church service (well, every Sunday is wonderful). After church we went to lunch with my great aunt, Nana, Pops, and uncle. After lunch we went home and relaxed, then went to Pat and Andi's in the evening for pizza, soda pop, and fellowship.

rooster, tractor, sunset

cowboy boots

or more correctly, cowgirl and cowboy boots. Last week (when Mom and Andi made marmalade) I snapped some pictures of Faith, Jake, Moriah, and Abi's boots. Joe and Ethan weren't there, or their boots would be in the pic too.
