A New Baby Cousin...

My aunt Tami just had a baby boy today and I wanted to tell all of you people who read my blog that everything is alright. I think I'll be able to see him today or maybe tomorrow. Hopefully you will see him soon too!

[Pictures will also be coming soon! Either from my blog or someone elses.]

My Camera is Dead! "CRYING"

My camera broke about 2 weeks ago "sneeze" and I'm still recovering from the effects of this tragedy. It pains me to talk of it and I don't know if It'll ever get fixed "grabbing another tissue" but I want you all to know that when it is fixed I will be posting pictures. Until then, expect none other (pictures) than the ones I already have on my lap-top.

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells

I just finished reading "The Time Machine" by H.G. Wells and it was interesting. I thought it would be somewhat different but it still was quite intriguing. It is about a man who builds a time machine and goes 800,000 years into the future. While there, he discovers queer creatures and ends up having to hunt down his time machine so he can return home. I was thinking maybe I could do a speech on it but it just wouldn't do. I will keep reading and maybe I could find one of you people a speech to act out next year. Alright then, and until next time, so long for now.

Tournament Stuff...

Yes I just got back from the Regionals tournament yesterday and I wanted to say that it was a blast and I learned a lot of good stuff! Last night it felt almost like heaven when I climbed back into my own cozy, wonderful, warm, soft, and home-like bed once again. I can't believe it is over and I want to start working on speeches for next year (I'll start now by reading lots of books) so that I can have them in ship-shape order by next season. In conclusion, I had fun, learned lots, gave speeches, and met others who also wanted to glorify God. :)

Oh, and I hope to see y'all at Speech Club tonight!

My 100th Post!

Yea! Let's celebrate my 100th post today, right now. Just leave a comment to show you care :) That'll be just fine. Oh, and... If you want to give me the $100's extra than that's fine too! Or... You can give the $200 to Destiny and we'll split it okay? Ha!
Take care everyone and pray that I'll get through these days (of rough practicing) before the Regionals Speech Tournament. See you soon! Bye now.

Isn't It a Nice Day?

Today was great. But wait! It's NOT over yet. I still might be practicing my Duo with Kaila later today (which CAN be fun, I guess) and then it will be night time. So... I did work on my other speech and I hear Devin and Destiny in the other room practicing their Duo but I still got to do the Duo I am in. I am glad that I get to be going to Regionals though and I think it will be fun! So long.

A Post to Post

Here is one of our cats staring at something. It probably was another cat I imagine.
Oh well, I gotta go now. Bye.

It's a Rainy Day Today

Well, I'm just doing school, eating, sleeping, speeching (doing speeches), and cleaning as well as playing chess, watching my little brothers and sisters run in circles too. I also happened to find this old hymn book and have been playing hymns on my piano today. They actually are quite thrilling when playing them. But... that is about it today. Not much.

I guess I'll get back to the stuff mentioned above. Bye!

Hello Again, Blog Problems

And how has everyone been these last couple of months? I have been doing fairly decent you could say. That is, everything has been going by so FAST and it is so hard to keep up with it all (if you know what I mean). But, yeah, it's an okay-life I lead. :)

I just thought I should do this quick post to see if you still all read my blog and if i SHOULD keep it going or not. You see, I'm really thinking about deleting it but I want to know what you all think. I mean, what would make this blog better? What would save it from total DEMOLITION?
