It's been since March since I last posted... that's a really long time! lol Things have been just too crazy for blogging.
I am so excited. I get to watch my girlies tomorrow. =) Ansley and Makenia, and their new brother Braydon. Braydon is the sweetest baby in the world... I just love him. He is going to town with Rebecca for a doctors appointment to make sure he is perfectly healthy. I miss the girls though, I haven't needed to babysitt because Richard has been taking a lot of time off and Rebecca hasn't needed much help.
I was really excited about this weekend because I was going to go down with my Aunt Cindy and Shannon, and Marshal, to Marie's graduation, but Justin hurt his leg real bad in P.E. the other day. He has an appointment on Monday with the doctor. They think it is just a really bad sprain, but there could be something broken. Anyways, they didn't want to go, because it would be really rushed, and Justin would have to go with them on that long drive, and decided it wouldn't be the best of ideas. They are going to try and go down another weekend, and said when they do they will take me.
School is officially done for the year. I finished last week. I have to find a sample of Math from this year... some where... I think that when I was done, I was just so glad to be rid of the book, I misplaced it... lol After I turn that in, I will then *really* be officially done. =)
It's getting late, and I need to get things in order for tomorrow, but hey, I posted! You all should be so proud. ;)

Have a most wonderful day.

Horse Riding Experience... =0)

It sure doesn't feel like it should be Monday today. The weekend is already gone... it's crazy. We had a complete blast at the bible study at Uncle Mikes house. All of the kids brought a verse that they really liked, and explained why they liked it. It was really interesting to hear every ones. Uncle Mike brought a lesson about future, and making sure that God is in whatever you want to do. We played some games... which FYI... the girls totally kicked butt on the T-shirt game. hehe... But the guys slaughtered us at "Guess a Word". It was fun. =0)

Yesterday afternoon my family and I went over to my Uncle Mikes again for Suday lunch. It was was fun. Shannon, Jen, and I rode the horses. =0) It was fun... a little scary at times, but it was alright. I got Sir first. He is pretty old and easy going... but he can be stubborn. I walked around on him for a while, and trotted, and even got into a little canter with him. I thought I was doing pretty good for never riding before... well... nothing that really counted anyways. Then... I thought, well I'll try Sassy. Which, by the way, she is named that for a VERY good reason. Well... I got on her and she's a bit younger, and she really likes to go fast. She was being a little more stubborn than Sir was, but I was expecting that. So I start around the big pen... and my PLAN was to go all the way around it. A-hem... Well... Half way around it she starts turning around in circles, and by this time I am softly kicking her and attempting to steer her in the right direction. All the sudden she decides to bolt off, back to the door of the pen... I am telling her "Woo"and the "WOOOO!!!" and she just keeps going faster... into a canter, and then into a full gallop... Maybe for all you horse riders your thinking well that's not too bad... but I was holding on for dear life!!! My legs were tighten around her as much as possible, and I wasn't going to dare let go of her mane to grab the rains that fell to her sides as she bolted off. I was so sure I was going to fall off. I look behind me... and guess what I see???? Jenni and Shannon are busting out laughing!!!! I was about to kill the both of them. At first i could hear Shannon saying kick her... pull back on the reins!!! But now she was just laughing!! Goodness gracious. Some people. Once she finally got to the door of the pen she started settling down a little. Shannon and Jen came over and were like, " I can't believe you actually stayed on!!! It was actually pretty funny, you looked a little scared." Well, ya think?!? Shesh... Shannon said she was proud of me for hanging on but said I needed to hold on with my legs more than hanging on to the mane. All well... We've decided to do this more often so we can get a little better. I don't think I will be riding Sassy until I get a little better though. =) lol It was actual really fun, but I was scared just because I wasn't sure what she was going to do. When she went around the corners of the stall, it was even harder to hang on, and when she stopped right away, I thought I was going to fall off, cause she almost reared a little. It was exciting to say the least though.

I'm just about to go babysit Ansley and MaKenia today. I am so excited. Mrs. Rebecca Smith should be having her third baby pretty soon. =0) She doesn't know if its a boy or a girl, but I think they are hoping it will be a boy. Especially Mr. Smith.

Well, I hope every one's Monday isn't going too badly... Have a good day...

Today was really, really cold. I don't know if it was just that I never really noticed it as much until today or what, but it just seemed so much colder today. My fingers are so cold from being outside, it's a little hard to type. =0) All well.

Yesterday night Dad brought home a lot of movies. One of them was Flags of Our Fathers. I couldn't tell you if it was a good movie or not, because I was so tired I couldn't finish watching the rest of it. It seemed like a really good movie though. It was silent in a lot of parts though... so those of you who don't have a TV guardian... it might not be too good.

This morning we just lazied around... then about noonish we all (the fam) went and help out on the parsonage. We repainted the floor, and it looks so much better. =0) I think we are going to clean around here, a little and then head off to Uncle Mike's house. It is this really cool thing that we started. All of the kids and a lot of times the parents will come too. We just meet at someones house one Saturday out of the month, and have a bible study, dinner, and play some games.

Then we figure out what we are going to do for a "fun day" like go ice skating, or to go play laser tag, and so on. I think it a really neat thing. We have more time to fellowship and just have good fun.

Well... I posted... happy now? lol Just teasing. =0) I told you all though... it's either boring or bad... lol That's not the best attitude I know... especially since my blog is called "It's a good life" lol. Which it is, don't get me wrong... I guess I am just not cut out for keeping any sort of a blog,,, maybe that's why I could never keep a diary. Always been a reader, never a writer. lol *SIGH* ALL well...

Have a marvelous day... ;-D
Pray for warmer, sunnier, summerier days...

SuNdAy MoRnIn'

Sorry Kriss... I have been TRYING... I realized just today that I hadn't posted for a couple days. =0) Forgive me. lol
I am just sitting here with Jenny, Michelle's sister. =) Church was good this morning. It was about Life and Godliness. It really opened my eyes to some things. My Uncle Mike brought the message. I wish I could post the whole message on here... but it would take too long. =0)
Well... I had to post right quick, but Jen is waiting to do something with me, and I feel bad.
I hope you all had a great Sunday morning... and have a great night.
I'm missing you all already. =0(

Praying always,

P.S. Thank you for taking me snowboarding!!! That was so much fun... I am SOOO sore. lol

Well, it's Thurday! ;)

I read this thing from Charles Spurgeon today, and I can't remember exactly what it said, but it said something like... oh forget it, hold on. Okay, I'm back... with the book. It says, "If we live, Jesus is will be with us; if we die, we shall be with Jesus." I read that and thought it was the coolest thing ever. The whole thing was about living for Jesus and not being afraid to die for him either. The ending paragraph says, "The truest lengthening of life is to live while we live, wasting no time, but using every hour for the highest ends. So be it this day." The ending sentence was what really got me. I have a tendency to read things and think about them for the next 10 minutes to and hour or 2 max, but it said simply and plainly "So be it this day". Just do it... in our words today. =0) Anyways I thought that was pretty cool, thought I would share it.
"The fear of the Lord prolongeth days; but the years of the wicked shall be shortened." ~Proverbs 10:27

This morning, I went to babysit for Mrs. Smith. Ansley and MaKenna are getting so big. I was over at their house for the morning. Once I got back I actually felt like doing my chores... I would have done them anyways, but not dreading it always helps. =) Life seems to be going by so quickly. Today it was so warm and sunny. Summer is really coming. I always look forward to summer... but I am not sure if I want things to get any more busy than they already are. School is getting done... but once I get done with it, along with chores, and helping with dinner, and going to town almost every other day, it seems like I don't have anytime anymore. God has definetly been giving me strength, and peace throughout the last couple of weeks.

A couple days ago, my mom and I turned in the paperwork for Hutch. I am hoping to take some nursing classes there this next year. What is so cool about them, is that they will count for my high school credits as well as my college credits. I am excited. I really have a peace about this. My parents are very happy with the idea, and are pushing me to do all that I can to make this work. I have a really good letter of recommendation from La Nae Bellamy. She works at the hospital and we get along really well. She is a really sweet lady. Her letter was above and way beyond what I was expecting. That should help a great deal. I have a slimmer chance of getting into the school, because I will just be going for particular classes, and not full time. But I also know a few people that work there, and they will help with getting me into the school. If it works out, I know God was in it, and if it doesn't it was His will. I am not at all worried.

I wrote this whole other paragraph... but then I decided it sounded way to depressing... and I didn't even mean for it too! So I just backspaced it all and am writing another one... or ending today's writing... umm... can someone tell me how to delete comments?? I don't know who that person is that wrote on my last post... and half the time I was reading, I couldn't understand what he was saying... for further notice... if I don't know you... then there's probably a reason. So don't comment. Thank you.
