end of school

so i finished up with my finals today. i am now a junior! sarah, my sister, finally graduated last night. that was pretty cool. there were a bunch of people graduating that i knew but i must have gotten really distracted because i seemed to have missed seeing them walk across the stage. jonathon got his nose peirced!! we had always joked around about it but he actually did it. who knows what to expect next. im in a pretty mellow mood so i guess i'll talk more later.

coffeehouse numero uno

hey. so a lot has been goin on the past few weeks. a bunch of people have graduated and our youth group had our first coffeehouse. that was a blast! and if you didnt come, you missed out on some great music!

first off, my sister had her ROTC banquet and she got stuff for being on the drill team. this is her with my parents.

wilson central high school graduated last night. my sister's boyfriend and michael clapper where two of the 250 people to graduate.

this past wednesday our youth group had a coffeehouse benefiting darfur. we had a great band-the psalters-and a lot of fun.

we raised about $250. something we had people do was put there red hand prints on a sheet and we will send it to president bush. some people wrote a message to him after they did the hand prints.

over all my last few weeks have been great. i still have to take finals next week though. i cant bfeleive how late we're doing them. mt. juliet's graduation is tuesday of next week and sarah, my sister, is graduating!!! im so excited!

whats up

so recently (last week) my sister had to go to daytona to compete in the national JROTC drill competition. of course, my parents and i went with her. we were down there for 5 days and the last day we went to orlando to go to islands of adventure. it was so much fun! her team placed 4th once and 5th once and in the singles, someone placed 5th. considering there were 50+ schools there, 5th twice and 4th is pretty good. i think there were 3 schools there from tennessee and they were all from middle tn. the day before we left, it started to get crazy windy. it was so windy we literally had to hold on to something so the wind wouldnt blow us back. when we were in orlando, the weather was really nice. it was about 80 with a breeze so it felt great.

also, some of you may have heard about that consignment dress shop that burned down. if not, then a consignment dress shop burned down thursday night in hermitage almost to mt. juliet. the night it burned down, my sister had just gone there and gotten her prom dress. she had 2 there that she was selling and a bunch of girls had their dresses there getting them altered. all of it is gone now and the lady that owned it didnt have insurance. i dont know what she's planning to do about the dresses she lost or if she plans on trying to open another one but its so weird that my mom and sister were just there hours before it happened. we think it started because she had a tanning bed in there and that sparked something. it was so cramped in there because it was so small and was overstocked with dresses so once the fire was started, it wasnt likely it was going to be isolated.

on another note, in about a week our youth group is sponsoring a coffee house benefiting darfur, a region in sudan. we'll have a band-the psalters- and some snacks. come if you can-wednesday, may 23rd
