We just got a discus for our fish tank. It was a baby one for only $15.00. Most fish we don't pay that much for but the discus is a real expensive fish. We also have a puffer fish. But I never got any good pictures of it.

Volley Ball

This season I signed up for volley ball at the old Oxnard High building. I have had a blast playing for the team and have come a long way in a short amount of time. The tournaments start at the end of this month some time. While I was at Mutual the other night I was talking to David about Volley Ball and he asked who I played for. When I said I was playing for pall he said, "Your going to be competing against my school team!". Our team actually has a girl from Davids school playing for us.

The Real Love of My Life

Yesterday was the beach clean up. While I was picking up trash Sam was talking to me about a family reunion they were going to that day. He was saying that his mom was going to make some Kalua pig to take to the reunion. Kalua pig is my weakness. I started (jokingly) begging for him to save me some. I didn't think he actually would but as we were leaving the church building today he told me that he was going to bring me some! I was ecstatic! Here is a funny picture of me eating. lol!

Happy Birthday Mom!

My moms birthday was Sept. 4th. We didn't do much at all except gave her our gifts. I think it was just Landon and I that gave her gifts though. Landon gave her a watch that he found on the beach and I gave her an apron I made her. She had been telling everyone (meaning me) that she wanted an apron that covered her whole Sunday dress. I was waiting at the Springers house after seminary for my mom to pick me up. When she pulled up she was in the Darleys car with a bunch of other Ladies. So I got in the car and asked, "Whats going on?" Everyone just stared at me until my mom said, "Well it's my birthday!" I had forgotten about it until just then. So right when I got home I pulled out the sewing machine and started making her apron. She knew what I was making because I had to make a few measurements and I didn't think it was that important to keep it a secret from her. She's was going to open it soon anyway and I didn't see the point in making a bad apron because I couldn't get the right measurements! So it was a fun day for her and for all of us.

100th Post!

I can't believe I'm already at 100!
Seminary started today. I set my alarm for 5:00am. I hadn't used that alarm clock for a while so it was still set to day light savings. I threw my clothes into the dryer and then went to check the clock. It said 4:00am. I went to check the clock in my mom and dads room and it said 4 to. So then I went back to my room and reset the time. I set my alarm again and then went back to bed. Seminary was good, we didn't do allot of studying though. We read one scripture and marked it then filled out a form telling more about us and what we like and dislike. That was about it. It was an easy first day. I got a ride home with Sis. Springer. (She teaches the seniors) Right when I got home I hit the pillow. I slept until 10:00 when my lil sister woke me up complaining that I put her stuff that was on the floor onto her bed. I am a really neat and clean person which makes it hard for any one else living in the same room as me. I think it'll take a while for me to get used to getting up at 5:30 but it shouldn't be to hard.

Girls Camp pictures!

No pictures of the zip-line my camera battery ran out when I started climbing. But I was a fast climber so they got some pics of me way up high!
These hats are one of many things the Relief Society gave to us! (I picked everything out.)
My friend caught me red handed! They said no electronics and what did I bring?
Walkie Talkies! Although I never used them while I was there. I was just unpacking.

This is the long orienteering hike we had to go on.
