Going to camp!


today is the feast of St. Martha.
St. Martha, Pray for us!


Hi!
LOTS going on! I found out Thursday night that I was chosen to receive a full ($400) scholarship to go to camp! You might remember how sad and disappointed I was that I couldn't go this year (I have been going to this camp for 6 years) So I'm leaving today at 2pm. I had Friday and Saturday to get ready and tell everyone that I was leaving. I'll be gone for 7 days (until the 4th)
Boy will I miss Renee, I hope she doesn't think I left her for good, lol. (We're never apart)

I watched "Eight Below" last night, not the greatest sled-dog movie (I think "Iron Will" has to be the best) But it was enjoyable.

Eliza, Have you seen X-men 3 yet? You're letter is in the mail! ;) Sorry it's kinda boring, we talk on the computer too much.

Muari, lol, My youth group had to think about the stone table for a minute I was like "HELLO!"

Sarah, thanks for the post :) I will let you know how I do at state!

THANKS GUYS!

Much love,
Kayla

Going to state!

<----The classic crime, favorite band!
Hey guys!
Well my County shoot-off was Tuesday night. I placed 4th out of 6 so I didn't do to bad. I made the state team so I'm going to state, I highly doubt our team will make it to nationals, lol. Our highest score was 250, I shot a 224. The high overall score is 400, lol. State is Aug 19th and I think we're going to camp up there, it's in Rama, CO 30-40 minutes outside of Limon so it's a good 2 hour drive from here and we have to be there to sign-up at 7:00 am :s

Last night I went to youth group and Kevin our youth leader had us watch Narnia and we tried to find all the symbolism from the bible that we could, boy is there A LOT! Every single part of the movie had something! I noticed the stone table breaking in two just like the curtain breaking in two and Lucy and Susan were just like the woman who went to the tomb and when they saw Azlan was gone they said "They've taken him" Just like the woman at the tomb. That wasn't the only thing I noticed...I could go on. Another thing is how Edmund takes the Turkish delight just like Judas took the 30 pieces of silver.
I also watched X-men 2 last night, they're not the best movies, but I liked them so I can't wait to see the 3rd one.

Today I went to the dentist, no cavities! yay! And then I went to the shelter and played with the cutest Labrador :) And tonight, I'm watching Damien's soccer game, I enjoy watching him play.
SO....I'll be going now, g2g finish my shooting project!

Busy weekend!

Today is the feast of St. Sharbel Makhlouf
St. Sharbel Makhlouf, pray for us!

Hi! Whew! I've had a BUSY weekend! Steubenville of the Rockies was so much fun! I loved it. I went with Kaitlin and she loved it too. We stayed in a suite...he he, but we weren't allowed to turn the t.v. on...that's okay though we weren't in our hotels much anyway. But there were some 2,100 people at the retreat and the music and speakers were great, one I particularly liked was Molly Kelly, she is a chastity speaker, basically the funniest old lady (I'd say about 57-60 years old.) I have ever seen. And Sean Forrest! He was funny! He was our entertainment. I had the opportunity to go to Adoration and confession. In confession we were given bricks and we had to carry these bricks until our confession was done! And when we were done we put the bricks at the foot of a cross, I thought it was neat. We waited in line for about 40 minutes. There were about 1,200 confessions in two days! (There were about 30 maybe more priests) It was awesome. Then on Sunday my mom picked me up and we went to my grandparents 50th wedding celebration. That was pretty fun! My grandparents loved the memory album we made for them. The food was yummy :) We went to Senior Ric's (Mexican) So I have been busy and tired...every night we went to bed at the retreat at about 1 am and got up at 6 am! Terrible...our chaprone kept us up all night telling funny stories and making us laugh our heads off! She is one funny chick! But I am home now and it feels weird being home away from my friends and 2,100 other teens, loud music and everything else...lol

I bought a CD today called the Classic Crime and I got a free Underoath T-shirt! yay! lol.

Well that's all! Tomorrow is my shooting competition! Wish me luck! ~Kayla

Dyed it black! geez!


Hey Everyone! Thanks for all the posts ;) Eliza my darling, I will mail your letter out ASAP! lol. I promise. Sorry I am so slow. Well I'm finished with my essay class that I took over the summer. It went well, I'm waiting for my grade. I learned A LOT about essay writing! I'd show you guys my essay but I highly doubt you would want to sit and read it, so I will spare you you're time ;) Not much going on now, our VCR is broken so I can't watch any VHS for a while. Just DVDs, I had a Jane Austen movie to watch though :( It was Emma. all I've pretty much been doing is babysitting. I'm saving the money for Steubenville of the Rockies! Can't wait, I'll be leaving Friday afternoon. It ends Sunday afternoon but after that I am going strait to my grandparents 50th anniversary dinner. So that's about it. Here is a picture of my grandparents on their wedding, wasn't my grandma's dress BEAUTIFUL! I would so wear it if she still had it, she said she dyed it black!!! To use as a party dress! MAN!

10 months 10 days! yay!


Hey!
Sorry I haven't kept up. No one can really keep a blog up anyway...If I posted everyday you would get reeeaaaly bored! So anyways...What's happened? Well Slingblade a.k.a. Katieri came over the other day, spent the night and went to Water World with me the next day. My parish (Holy Trinity) went, it was for the alter servers. So Damien came along (he is an alter server) We had fun. But I hate it when you spend almost all day there and only go on 7 rides, it was really crowded. Of course we did spend a lot of time in the wave pool! I love the wave pool :)
And yesterday I went to see POTC 2 again with Kaitlin, then I babysat Tina last night, today we're going to a party/picnic thingy at a friends and then I'm going to babysit Angela.
So I've been keeping a little busy.
I'm suppose to be babysitting Renee now so I better go :) I'll write more later if I can! Okay!

10 months 16 days!


Hi!
Well I got the stomach flu :( I'm over it now, it was only the 24 hour flu. Everyone had it except my mom (Amazing huh?) It was terrible. I think I had it the worst. I threw up 7 times in about 3 hours. I hadn't been that sick in a really loooong time. The night I was sick I got about 2 hours of sleep. But I'm better, I went to Katieri's and spent the night. We went to see Pirates 2!!!! I LOVED it! It was SO funny and Johnny Depp did a really good job!!!I can't wait to see it again and I can't wait for the 3rd one. You have to wait for the 3rd one to see what happens next! :s 10 months 16 days. haha. Katieri and I have gone pirate crazy.

it's been raining here for since yesterday. I don't think we've ever gotten this much rain in July. I like it though, we reeeaaaly needed it.
I won't be going to the dew tour this year :( my brothers and I decided not to, we really need to save our money. We're going to Pirates on Friday though. I'm going to Water World with Katieri Wensday, I have a lot of babysitting jobs this weekend then the 21-23 I'll be at Steubenville of the Rockies. So I have a busy July ahead of me...

Hope Everyone is well!!!!

stomach flu

Happy 4th even though it is the 5th, lol. Ours was fun but we didn't get to see fireworks because it rained all day :( We were at my grandma's. It was disappointing, we usually go with all my aunts and uncle at the park near my grandmas but not this year...
And today everyone has the stomach flu and I think I'm getting it...And I really don't want to. I had plans this week. I am suppose to go see POTC 2 with Katieri. My mom thinks its the 24 hour flu because Renee got it yesterday and is fine today. So hopefully I'll get better tomorrow.

So that's all that's been going on really...I have really been playing the piano and passed the beginners book...lol. And now I think I better go...(throw up if you wanted to know)

Well the boys got home today. They are all in bad moods and need to take a nap! geez! Mom and I had fun. We watched Pride and Prejudice, the newer one with Kiera Knightly and I LOVED it!!! It a must own movie. (for me at least) I'd like to see the older one too. We also watched Father of the Bride II which was hilarious! I love Franc in that movie aka Martin Short. This morning we went out to breakfast with my grandma at Village Inn. And that's about it, we enjoyed the peace and quiet mostly :) Nathan didn't go because he had to work so he was here.

I can't believe the 4th will be here before we know it :s I can't wait until July 21st, that's when I go to my Steubenville of the Rockies retreat with Kaitlin.

My grandma lent me a CD today called Celtic Women, its a group of 5 Irish woman. One of them plays the fiddle and one of them plays the harp. And they are vocalists and have the prettiest voices.

So now I have to go help with dinner!
