I am now officially finished with school for my sophomore year. For some reason my Spanish class seemed to go on forever and ever, but we went out to eat and my teacher gave my whole class certificates that said we completed Spanish 1. It hasn't really sunk in yet that I don't have Spanish next week, but when Tuesday rolls around I know I'll be very thankful. :)
My summer is so full of things that I'm doing I'm almost afraid to write it out because I'll become overwhelmed. To begin with, I'm working at Highland Country Club and substituting at the Riviera Club as a lifeguard. I'm also the nanny of twin boys that live behind me on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Wednesdays I'm cleaning Dr. and Mrs. Blackwood's house. Hopefully I'll survive between these four jobs.
Next Thursday - a week from today - I am leaving for ECHO. It has come up so quickly and I'm only now starting to get things together. Last year I was much more prepared beforehand. My leaders are Ben and Laura Turner, Rochelle Moore and Heather Baumgarder. I am really excited because this year I get to be one of the "older, more experienced" people on the trip. I just know that God is going to teach me a lot and I'm looking forward to whatever he has in store.
I am planning on attending Covfamikoi in July, that will probably be a greatly needed break from all my work. I am excited because I've always heard so much about it, but I've never been that I can remember... most of you probably know my "drawer" story. :) I am also planning on swimming on the Riviera swim team as much as I can. I haven't been quite as faithful as I should be recently, but I'm planning on squeezing in as many practices as I can.
I probably should have posted this actually on his birthday, but hopefully he'll be surprised that I posted about it at all. My little brother Daniel turned 13 this past Tuesday. (I suppose since he is now thirteen I shouldn't call him my little brother.) I just want to say that I am really proud of him. He has grown up so much in the past year and I can really see God's work in his life. I love you Daniel! :)
This is quite a long post for me so I should probably end it now. Luv and miss you all!!!

Quote of the post:
"I hate the way you talk to me and the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive your car. I hate it when you stare. I hate your big dumb combat boots and the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick - it even makes me rhyme. I hate it when your always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh - even worse when you make me cry. I hate it when your not around and the fact you didn't call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you all - not even close, not even a little, not any at all." - 10 things I hate about you
