"Well at least we know it's not just for his looks."

I have a lot of good news.

Or so it seems to me, anyway.

The first, and most EXCITING:


Like, wow, I'm excited. I've missed it. It seems as if it's been FOREVER since I last played in an actual game. Last year was REALLY fun, but everyone on our team hated eachother, and everyone was always fighting. Everyday in the locker room, (or after each game) someone would say "Hey (name here), you really need to pass better", or they would say things like, "CERTAIN PEOPLE need to really start working harder, and blah blah blah", which would lead to other people joining in, and other people fighting back.

It would always become a big mess, and then you would hear people saying, "Everyone just calm down, we shouldn't be fighting like this, we're a TEAM."

Now, I'm sure you wanted to know all of that, but anyway the point is: Last year's team (freshman) couldn't get along on the court or off, which made it very hard for us to do well. Although sometimes, we did.

We still had fun though.

Also, at the end of the season I got to play with the JV team a lot. That was really fun because they didn't fight. Ever. And they were all really good. Which was kind of scary at times, but I made it through, haha.

SO ANYWAY. I think this year is going to be a lot more fun because we are no longer the freshman, and we actually know what's going on this year. And I'm betting we'll all get along better. I don't know why, I'm just hoping I suppose.

Okay, that was WAY longer than I intended it to be, so let's move on.

Now for number two,

2. Stefani, Shelbie and Audrey all came (or are coming) home today!

Stefani, my sister, has been at Camp Dreamcatcher, where she is a councelor/leader person for the children with cancer and disease. She's been gone since like, last Thursday, and I'm beginning to miss her. She is coming home today, but won't be home until probably 12 to 1 o' clock in the morning.

Shelbie and Audrey, my best friends, have been at their church camp, MO Ranch since last Sunday. And they got home today! But we're waiting until tomorrow to hang out, because they obviously need some rest.

3. Tomorrow is the fourth of July!!!

I LOVE July 4th. It's exciting. Especially all the fire works. Every year we go to Abilene to watch the HUGE show. It's crazy seeing all those gigantic and absolutely BEAUTIFUL fire works. It's like freaking Disney World, hahaha.

And then a few nights later, my family, Shelbie and Audrey, and I are going to the lake to shoot our own fireworks. Yay! :) Fun.

4. I got me teeth pulled out!

Ha, okay this normally wouldn't sound like good news. BUT: I've been dreading getting my teeth pulled for over a month. I thought about it everyday, and thought about all of the things that could go wrong, and I could just imagine how much it hurt!

It was probably the day of my appointment that I figured I had prayed hard enough, and begged God enough, that I had nothing to worry about.

Which was so very true. The only thing that hurt (or I actually even FELT, shall I say) were the shots. They weren't too bad, just the ones in the roof of my mouth.

Though, I'll admit, gobs of bloody gozz and mouthful after mouthful of blood, isn't always comforting, I got through it. And now I'm doing great and that HUGE burden was lifted off my shoulders! :)

5. I got the CUTEST bag at Old Navy yesterday.

As my mom and I were walking through the store, simply glancing over at the bags, I saw the cutest bag I'd ever seen. It as colorful, and abstract and I KNEW no one else would have it. I HAD TO HAVE IT!

After begging my dad, I was able to get it. It's going to be my school bag, because it is freaking HUGE and could carry a crane if it wanted to. So I figure it can handle my books and junk.

Seeing as I bought my bag ALREADY, I feel (almost feel) "excited" about school starting. I'm sure you're all probably falling out of your chairs right now, because to hear me say that is like watching a cat dance in the rain.

It just doesn't happen.

I've never been excited for school, nor have I ever even LIKED school.

And as of now, I'm pretty sure it's less of the beginning of school, I'm looking forward to, but the END that calls my name! :)

And abunch of you are probably saying right now, "Don't rush your life away, you're going to miss these days. You'll wish you could do it all again."

Blah blah blah! I don't care! :) Haha.

So there's tons of other good news I could share with you, but I'm starting to believe this is so LONG and boring, no one's reading it anyway ;] Hahaha.

You guys don't have volleyball practice during the summer? When I played (I quit last year), we had practice three or four times a week. It was ridiculous. But everyone got along. We hung out outside of volleyball and everything.

Daddy's are the best.

That would be nice, though.

We just have a camp at the end of July, and then two a days start the first week of August.

But that's cool. And yes, they are!

Haha, by the way, do I know you?
