sleep deprived

ello,
This morning I woke up from a long night of twisting and turning because I was sooo hot and I can't sleep when it's hot out. I can for sure sleep when its cold out though! Its funny during the school year I could sleep allll day and during the summer I wake up at like 8am it's sad.
So anyway....I woke up and there were birds outside on our feeder everywhere! They are so funny! We fill our bird feeder every day...it's so funny. We usually only get sparrows and blackbirds. sometimes I see a black bird with yellow underneath.


Okay this is very random, but you know what I think? I think that Kiera Knighty and Audrey Hepburn are somehow related. I swear they look the same...it scary. who agrees?

summers' been fun!

Hello everyone!
Not to much going on. Chinonye and I had lots of fun :) We went to see that movie 'Invincible' it was sooo good! I loved it. It was a football movie about the Philly Eagles. I've always liked sport movies for some reason, especially football ones. I like Rudy the best. I want to see that basketball one 'Glory Road' my mom saw it and said it was good.
After the movie we went to Cosmic Bowling for 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. That was fun, lol. Before that I had never gone bowling before :s I loved it so I went again on Sunday with Kaitlin.
So that's about it! I start school soon. When my mom gets back from AZ, she and Nick are going to visit my grandma for a few days.
That's all for now!

Okay, I have the rest of my camp pics. They didn't turn out well so I just have two good ones,

and this one on the top is a Steubenville picture.

Kaitlin, me and Mia at Stuebenville of the Rockies. Yes we look terrible. It was the last day, we were tired and the sun was in our eyes!



Bethany and me aka "Zorro's" and Mary the dreadful girl who painted black unwashable MARKER! on our faces.





Okay, this is most of my team trying to make a bridge. yeah.

HAPPY B-DAY ELIZA!!!


Today is Eliza's 16th B-day!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Love ya lots!!! ;)
Hi everyone,
sorry it's been awhile. I have been really busy with just trying to get things done. I'm the editor of our homeschool newsletter and I had to type up this huge directory and that's taken a lot of my time :s
Other then getting things done around the house, nothing else has happened. I'm going to Chinonye's house tomorrow to spend the night. And that's about it. I've also been lost in my Jane Austen books, lol. I admit. But reading is better then sitting on the computer right? lol.

I volunteered today...none of the dogs wanted to play. It was weird. Of course I only got to play with 4 dogs. They were all just the quiet type I guess.

okay. I'm going to bed now! I promise next time a longer post!

today is the feast of St. Pius X
St. Pius X, pray for us!

Hi!
How's everyone? I'm getting over my cold. Yesterday I went to my neighbors Tenneal's 6th birthday party, lol. It was at a place called "Pump it" It's basically a big inflatable kingdom of bounciness. hehe. I ate too much cake and ice cream :( blah...lol.
And we also had a friend from New York stay with us last night, her name is Libby and she was here at the Aspen Music school for the summer and needed a place to stay Sunday night. She is 16 and she was really nice, omg, she reminds me sooo much of my friend Kayleigh it's not even funny. I had actually never met her until yesterday. She plays the violin and omg she is sooo good. She also plays the cello. We rented Pride and Prejudice for her, that was my 3rd time seeing it but that's okay because I looove that movie!
So we just got back from dropping her off at the airport.

Everyone is gone! Friends left for college, all my little middle school buddies are off to high school, makes me sad...

Hey everyone!
man...I have had a busy weekend! Damien and I went to our State shooting competition. We went Friday night and camped. It was all dirt and it rained allll night looooong....*sigh* You know what that means? Lots and Lots of mud. I was covered in mud. But I still shot. I don't know what I placed yet though, probably not very high.
I don't start school for a while but I fell like starting now. I know it sounds sad, but everyone has to admit they like to start school. Its funny how you can't wait for school to start and then you can't wait for it to end, lol. That's sad coming from a homeschooler. lol.
Anyway...I have to go take a shower now, lol, I'm still muddy.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!

Hey everyone!
Well mom turned 46 today. shh....don't tell. lol. I made brunch and we gave her our b-day gifts. I got her flavored coffee and some biscotti biscuits. My dad gave her a $25 gift card to Jo-Anne's, Nick and Damien gave her a candle that looks like a real apple, Mikey gave her scissors and scrap booking stickers and Tony and Carol gave her a really pretty outfit!
I wonder if my mom ever reads my blog...mom if your reading this post a comment, lol.
I think its pretty much Eliza, Mauri and Sarah that read my blog. Sometimes Emily and Jessica...any one else that I'm missing? If I am post a comment ;) hehe.

Anyone heard of the new movie 'Material girls' with Hilary and Haylie Duff? Its actually looks really good for a Hilary Duff movie, lol! I'd like to see it.

Well I g2g do the dishes, straiten my hair and get ready to go to Katieri's house to marrow, I'm spending the night. We were suppose to go to pirates cove water park but I guess it's going to be really rainy tomorrow so we may do something else. So better get goin'!

the usual....busy

today is the feast of St. Clare
St. Clare, pray for us!

Hello!
<--- isn't that a pretty picture! I love St. Clare!

Mauri, shooting is going good :) thanks, I've been keeping consistent high scores (around 230) The state shoot-off is coming up on the 19th! I'll let you know how that goes. Hey Mauri, I know you like to shoot, do you do any 4-h shooting sports?

Summer has been soooo busy! All of my retreats and camps are over but everything else, lol. I went shopping and out for lunch with Kaitlin and her mom, the dog shelter, and b-day shopping for my mom yesterday. Today we went to my grandma's but on the way we had to stop at the doctors so Damien could get his ingrown toe-nail fixed...anyone ever had an ingrown toenail? They look like they hurt...the doctor cut like half of his nail out, gross! And I think I'm actually NOT doing anything tomorrow :) Maybe I'll get a chance to read a full chapter of Pride and Prejudice, it's taking me so long to get through the first few chapters. It's a really good book so far though. I think Sunday I'm going over Katieri's and we're going to some water park in Littleton (Pirates Cove, never been there)
I babysat tonight while parents went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 2, surprisingly my mom liked it, not sure about my dad. :)

Well that's all I have to say (like usual) don't be afraid to post a comment, lol!

my CD player broke :(

today is the feast of St. Cajetan
St. Cajetan, pray for us!

Hi everyone!
Not much going on today. I was in a terrible mood this morning because my CD player broke. I've never had great luck with CD players....my brother is going to try and fix it.
Saturday we went to my aunts house to help her out (she just had knee surgery) and then we went to my cousin's Niki's birthday party (I think she turned 6, lol) And Sunday was a busy day, we went to mass, then the Adams county fairgrounds to pick up our projects and look around at the other projects. Then after that we went to Holy Trinity's church festival. Our two priests were serving Mexican food and they called the restaurant 'Los Dos Padres' :) It was good food! My mom and I ate there and my brothers had boring hamburgers...But anyways I won a bottle of soda at the ring toss! lol. That was fun.

Today is Tony and Carol's 2nd wedding anniversary. I'm going to babysit Tina tonight so they can go do something together :)

That's about it! Here are some more camp pictures, click on them to make them bigger.
I still have to get my other ones developed.


I'm at the end in this one ^^^

I'm BACK!!!

Hi everyone!
I'm back :) I had a blast! I am VERY tired though... We did SO much.

First day was ice breaker stuff :)
second day we did sports and activities and "beauty day" we all got make-up and our hair done. third day we went on a 7 mile hike and carnival night.
fourth day we went paddle boating
fifth day we went on another hike (only 4 miles) that was cartoon night (I was roo from Winnie the pooh)
sixth day was horse back riding :) my favorite part and game night
seventh day! Awards and come home!

We did so much more! It was kind of hard being the oldest camper (I was older then all the counselors also, haha) there especially since all my friends from last year were all team leaders and bossed me around! But my room mate Bethany was 16 and we made friends with each other in an instant :) I loved her, she was so funny, we had so much fun together. Because we were the oldest we were put in charge of some things like planning the Counselor appreciation day and putting together adoration lists, and thank you cards, and much more! We got to dress up like Zorro! We painted black masks on our faces with BLACK MARKER! We scrubbed our faces for HOURS! but it was worth it, the girls loved it. We surprised everyone, the reason we dressed up like Zorro is because every night "Zorro" (one of the counselors) would collect the things laying around and if a camper wanted her stuff back she had to do something stupid. So Bethany and I dressed up like Zorro, stole stuff from the counselors rooms and made them do crazy stuff in front of everyone! lol, it was awesome.

Well I have to go start unpacking and stuff so I'll write more soon! Here are two pics from a disc I bought at camp, I haven't developed mine yet so I'll post those later! (Like the Zorro pics ^_^)
