It's That Time of Year Again...

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted much lately. My summer was okay. I didn't really do anything exciting but I did go to Nicki's birthday party last month, which was fun. I wish I could've gone with Marina, Rilla, Gwen and Helen to Maine though-that would've been awesome!

A new girl by the name of Brooke moved to Star Valley in June. I think she's 12 or 13 and goes to Primrose Academy, the private school. Other than that, I don't know much about her.

School started a few days ago. Oh joy...not. We already have homework and we have desk partners. I'm stuck sitting next to Nikki Halliwell. She and I don't get along at all. She is so different than her younger sister, Hallie, who I am friends with. Why couldn't I be paired with Marina or Nicki or even Megan or Heather? It's not fair!

We have to write an essay over the weekend. "What is One Thing We Hope To Accomplish In School This Year?" I don't really know. *sighs*. I suppose the obvious should be try to work harder and earn better grades. But school is boring. I hate tests. And (unless I have my hand raised which is rarely) I hate being called on-either I'm not sure of the answer or if I do have it, my mind goes blank and I freeze either way. I am so unlike Marina and Megan; they're both straight-A students!

Hallie is having her annual first week back sleepover. Part of me doesn't really want to go, even though I already told her I would. But Kaya's coming, too, of course, and I think one or two others. Nicki and Kirsten, I think?


P.S. Is it June yet?

P.S. #2: Here's some pics from Nicki's birthday party:

Violets & Daisies Brilliant Blog Bouquet Award.

I've been really bad at keeping blog awards going...I have one that I was nominated for last year, I think, that I still haven't replied there a time limit on replying to them? Sometimes I have a hard time coming up with answers to some of the questions, too...

Anyhoo, I was nominated for the Violets & Daisies Brilliant Blog Bouquet Award from my friend, Sophie Moreau. Thanks, Sophie!

Now onto the questions:

1. If you could have a 'flower pen name' like we have here on our blog, Violets and Daisies, what would it be? Um, I don't really know. I love carnations so maybe something with that, like Sweet Carnation or something?

2. What is your favorite ever Bible verse and why? I admit I don't really read the Bible but I like the one that was in A Walk To Remember when Jamie and Landon get married: St Paul to the Corinthians 13: 4-8 8, 13 "Love is always patient and kind, it is never jealous, love is never boastful or conceited, it is never rude or selfish, it does not take offense, nor is it resentful. Love takes no pleasure in others’ sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end. There are three things that last, faith, hope and love and the greatest of these is love."

I also like the one that Sophie quoted on her blog because I like the song "Turn, Turn, Turn" by The Byrds which is almost like it.

3. What are the blogs that inspire you most? I would have to say Sophie's blog: Le Fabuleaux Destin de Sophie Amelie; Inky's blog: Super Inky and Wendy's blog: Wendy's Life. They're all online friends and I love reading about their adventures. They're all also really good at updating, unlike myself.

4. If you and your friends could visit any country in the world, where would you go? I think England would be fun. Or Greece-then we could jump off that cliff from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2-though I'd have to jump with a friend! Germany and Italy would be pretty, too.

Even if you've already been nominated, I nominate the following blogs:

1. The Water Street Girls' Blog
2. Wendy's Life
3. A Doll's Life
4. Samantha's Space
5. Super Inky

Happy Birthday, Kaya!

Okay, before I get to today, I just wanted to show your guys what Kaya and I got for Valentine's Day, from my parents. I got a cute Beanie Boo white kitty and Kaya got an adorable Russell Stover bear.

Aren't our Valentine stuffed animals cute?

We had a nice Valentine's Day. There were parties in our classes and we even got to watch movies in class-I love when we get to watch movies in school. My mom and I baked heart-shaped sugar cookies, too.

Okay, onto today. Today is Kaya's birthday! For Kaya's birthday, my parents and I got her a Beanie Boo pink poodle named Princess. Kaya loves dogs-and horses. She was so happy when she saw her gift. :)

Kaya's present and card.

(Outside of Star Valley) Along with Kaya's birthday, today is also Bitty Baby Hannah's birthday! She got a cute yellow kitty stuffed animal. Kaya and Hannah both came here on Feb. 24th, 2006! :)

Happy Birthday, Kaya and Hannah!

Math Class

So Wednesday during math class, I missed a couple questions that I was called on, to answer. It was partly because I hate being called on, in class, and partly because I-er-wasn't fully paying attention, I guess. When we started on our schoolwork, Mrs. Halliwell wanted to see me, at her desk. Eek! I nervously followed her and she talked to me a bit and told me that if I had a question, I could ask her for help. Then she asked me to stay at her desk to do my work. Probably partly because I tend to doodle-hearts, flowers, stars...when I do my homework or a test. She also probably sensed that I was nervous because she said that I could have a friend sit at the desk, with me. Of course, I chose Marina! She's always there for me. :) Mrs. Halliwell also checked my answers to make sure I was getting it. I felt embarrassed-sometimes I hate asking for help. But at least Mrs. Halliwell was nice and understanding. And Marina was nice and understanding, too. :)

*Sighs a breath of relief* Now it's the weekend so I can enjoy it! Well, I do have some homework but aside from that, I can enjoy it. We're reading The Secret Garden in Reading class. I'm liking it. Then again, I've loved all three versions of the movie that I've seen-and own. Mary and Dicken are my favorite characters in it.

Math Worksheets And Sleepovers

Kaya and I are sleeping over at Hallie's tonight. How sad is it that I've been sorta trying to avoid Mrs. Halliwell? I have a math worksheet due on Tuesday but I haven't started yet. And we had a little timed worksheet to do in class yesterday and I didn't get all the way through...I hate the timed worksheets. They're usually a mix of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and all between 0 and 12. So stuff like 7x9 or 10+12 or 6/3...but since we only have a few minutes to do them, I never seem to finish. I swear my mind likes to go blank sometimes-even on easy questions! Or, with looking fast, I'll do the wrong thing...ugh...Mrs. Halliwell probably thinks I'm stupid. Icky math.

So whenever Mrs. Halliwell comes into the room we're in, I kinda duck and look down. I like hanging out and sleeping over at Hallie's but it's always awkward when your teacher is the mom of one of your friends.

And I know, I shouldn't be afraid. And I also know I've written similar-sounding posts before and will probably do more in the future...but still...

Anyway, other than the avoiding thing, we've been having a fun time. We set up some of Hallie's toys and had them go to the mall. Then they had a fashion show. We also played cards, like three-way war. Very fun. I won once and Kaya won twice.

We're about to go to bed soon. (and, for anyone wondering...yes, I do feel a bit nervous typing this. I don't want Mrs. Halliwell to see it. It makes me a bit jumpy, typing this entry-if she saw it, I'd probably be wicked embarrassed and she'd probably hate me and be mad and- ack!).

First Post Of 2013

Ack! Oh my gosh, I am sooooo sorry I haven't posted in months! I kept meaning to but just never got around to it, I guess. That and nothing too much has been going on lately.

I know this is old news now but over the summer, I got to meet up with Sophie (of Fair Hollow), who came to visit for a few days, and Claudia (who lives in Waterloo). We had a lot of fun walking around a park and taking pictures!

In September, I went to a birthday party for Olive and Aimee. We watched movies, played games, ate cake, and had fun getting to know each other better.

In the Fall, Kaya went to visit some of our friends in Waterloo. She had a lot of fun except she got scared when she and Claudia were watching Dr. Who. I've never seen it but Kaya said not to. It doesn't really seem interesting to me anyway. Then again, I watch Disney a lot.

In December, we went to the Tree Lighting Ceremony. It was fun; we stood around the tree, singing Christmas Carols, and we took pictures by the tree and drank hot chocolate and ate cookies.

Kaya and I had a nice time over the holidays. I got a couple of new movies and stuff, for Christmas/birthday. My birthday cake this year was a chocolate raspberry layer cake-yum! It was delicious! (for anyone who doesn't know, my birthday is on Christmas! And actually, Gwen Thompson, of Daisy Hollow, is also a Christmas angel). (Daisy Hollow is Grandlinda's doll town).

We didn't really do much for New Year. And once we got back to school, we had an essay to write, on our Christmas Vacation. I don't like essays. I'm not good at them.

Yesterday I got a present in the mail, from my pen pal, Maura! She gave me a cute The Three Little Kittens book! Thank you, Maura!

(Isn't the wrapping paper cute?)

I guess that brings me to now, where nothing is really happening. Pounce and Licorice got into a little fight-silly kitties. We still have our tree up but will probably take it down next week. I love Christmas trees and decorations and I feel a little sad when it's time to take them down. But...they'll be up again before we know it! I guess I'll stop here since I can't really think of anything else to write.
