birds are amazing

this has nothing to do with anything, but i think its really funny

today, i was in my kitchen. and i there is a window above our sink. well, as i turned around to wash my hands, a blue bird came flying at the window and hit it! it was loud, too! then it just flew away. when it hit i screamed (and i never scream at anything) my mom was behind me and asked me if screamed because i saw my reflection. if you dont think this is funny, i guess you just had to be there. but it was really funny to me. so yeah

ahhhhh! the bonfire was sooooooo much fun! we had a bunch of people show up and even with the little bit of sprinkling it was amazing! we were talkin this morning after sunday school and we were like, hey we should invite gavin and hendersonville to come. then we were all like ohh yeah! then jonathon was like, thats too short of a notice but that could be fun some other time...... and then i found 5 dollars. so anyways, tonight we got through all the hoopla and actually sang some songs (which was great because we never sing at youth), everybody had a great time and i cant wait to do it again!!


2 days of school left!

i was sick all last week and still pushed going to school. that was a bad idea... today i just chillaxed and didnt really do anything. tomorrow we will be having youth at my house! can you say bonfire? i've been looking forward to this for so long so its pretty exciting. its supposed to rain so im praying that it doesn't. we've already pushed it a few weekends. any longer and we'll be watching for snow.
i decided i have a new favorite band - the fray. they are amazing! all their songs are good.
for our ski trip we're having a t-shirt design contest. this could be interesting. i figure if you want a shirt you'll like, design it yourself. so thats what i did.
only two days of school this week! yessss. happy thanksgiving!

fall retreat!!

the jr.'sr. high retreat was amazing! we didnt have as many people this year but i think it almost worked out for the best. we all split up into workshops and each workshop planned something for the evening or morning worship. mine was the video workshop. we made a video. go figure. the only bad thing was i was sick all day yesterday and today. i also had a charliehorse the whole weekend. over all, this weekend was fun. i got some good pictures from worship, too.

up next - warmth in winter!! = )
