Staying Positive

I just went to school to register for my Senior classes and I am feeling a bit depressed about the fact that I actually have to go back to school in a week or two. Ugh... So to keep my mind positive were gonna list some positive things

If anything, this makes me have a positive mind set... He's kinda good at getting pulling me out of my negative thinking.

I've had the best summer of my entire life. I did everything I wanted to do and I am really thankful this whole summer has been given to me. Lots of time with Jake, swimming in the lake, friends, family vacations, Kaisha's wedding, late nights watching movies, the Olympics, working, college searching. All of it has been buckets of fun and I wouldn't trade this summer for anything.

The trees will be changing colors soon! Thats always fun! Splashes of bright orange, red, and yellow, yes please! Our school has ONE beautiful aspect to it, and its the trees in the fall. There are 4 trees in the back of the school that take my breath away! Those trees alone, and Maddie, make school tolerable.

My school load wont be too challenging. That's good, right?

I got a new leather purse. More like a satchel thing. But its cute!

I wont have the same math teacher as last year! Now THAT is worth celebrating.

Maddie and I will have classes and lunch together. Hallelujah!

Tenth Ave. North's new album comes out tomorrow. I have been waiting so long for this!

The new Limeberry store opens in a week, is that a positive thing?... Uhh, sure. Why not!

Kaisha started a new blog, it kinda makes my day when she posts something new. Cause she is so stinkin creative and cute and just.... perfect. Here's a link if you need a dose of cuteness to your day...  Kaisha's blog.

My mom and Grandma made apple sauce, super yummy!

Jake's golf season is starting up today! Yippee! Fun to get to watch his golf game improve and destroy all the other golfers in the area. ;)

Maddie is still the coolest thing God has made. Seriously. Life would not be nearly as fun without that girl.

I am taking a Calligraphy class this year, I have no idea if I will be good or not, but it sounded kind of fun to take anyways!

Thats all... I am better now. I guess there is quite a lot to look forward to this year, I suppose I should focus on that instead.

Boys have a smell, a sound, a smell, a certain look, and a smell. Ok, MY brother has a smell. It's not a bad smell necessarily, but a definite smell of... just boy.

Boys are funny. They play around and throw stuff at each other and they like to have their faces pounded into the ground. They like food. A lot. They live to play baseball, football, basketball, xbox, and go to the neighborhood sand pit and roll around in the sand.

They are simply just... boys. And I love that about them.

Thomas has a group of friends in the neighborhood and they are seriously like a gang. They are always together and always wearing about the same attire. Basketball shorts, a 'Champion' tee shirt, long black socks, and Nike shoes. These are the boys I'm talking about. They all run around switching from house to house playing Xbox and baseball. They go to the grocery store together with whatever mom is going. Like I said, a gang. They are all incredibly cute and so fun to listen to their conversation.

Today they all had a home run derby.... Just look at these studs...

Good job Ben for showing all those big kids that the little one sometimes takes first place!

August, really? Wow... time flies....

I havent been blogging much. But thats a good sign. Means that I've found more important and fun things to do other than blogging.

School is gross. I know its gonna be my Senior year and thats exciting and all... but eww. Not talking about this anymore.

Jake lives on a lake, so lots of swimming and hanging out at the dock. Loads of fun.

Emily is funny. Weird, dorky, hilarious, best friend, amazing sister.

Limeberry is amazing. Love that job. Old Navy... Gross. My dad called it "Cold Gravy" I think I'm gonna go with that name from now on. 

Downtown Olympia is cool in the summer.

The Farmers Market is fun. Jake and I go to eat the sample cherries and hear weird bands.

Thomas loves life. Sunshine, baseball, and the X-Box.

Jake's awesome. Lots of fun times with him this summer. Weird random dates that will be some of my favorite memories for a long time.

Had a really good talk with Maddie about how flippin amazing our God is. Can't believe how well He has orchestrated this life of mine.

Also! God's pretty cool. I've loved summer and being able to wake up and spend my time with God fully awake and conscious. During the school year, I'm basically half asleep. Bad, I know. But thats the truth.

Summer Hummer was fun. A challenge, but really fun. Wouldn't have wanted to do it with anyone else. Thanks Maddie.

And uhhhh thats it! Happy end of your summer little blogger readers.
