Long Awaited...

Long awaited pictures, this is Mac....

He Graduated!!

Oh yeah... my little brother graduated!! He received the Bible Memory Award, which is pretty sweet! (= And I told you how he was playing little boy blue. So there he is!! WHAT A CUTIE!

So do you ever think that your summer is going to be like so boring, and then all of the sudden it is full of some exciting (and not so exciting) places to go and people to see? I am doing so much this summer! Family vacation, helping in a camp, my friend coming home from out of the country, seeing friends from Ohio, and tons of other stuff. It is turning into a really busy summer. I like those kind!

My aunt is here with us for the weekend! So we went for a walk, we played with my brother's baseball toy, ate with my cousin and her boyfriend, and play the Wii. We tested out our ages on the wii. I was 38- don't be like whoa! If you have never tried it before, I dare you too, because it's not all that easy. I have been pretty far up there, and yea anyway. My mom was 29 last time she did it. Lucky her!

I was reading in my Bible last night Ecclesiastes. I finished reading it, but the other day, I read in Chapter 3 about how 'to everything there is a season. A time to laugh, A time to cry,' Just how there is all different times for things. God has made different seasons for our lives. So, we went through a valley, but sometimes we are on a mountain. Have you heard Michael W. Smith's new song "Mighty to Save"? My mom loves that song, and so do I.

"Saviour, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Author of Salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus Conquered the grave"

So, I hope that everyone who reads this has a great weekend! I hope that it is God-honoring, and tons and tons of fun!


Some of you might think that my Isabella and Kristina stories are crazy. But oh well! You'll probably get to read another one on Monday night, because we are having a sleepover!! Since Monday is the last day of academic school, we will have time to party! hehe! Until then...

Right now, I am sitting in my messy bedroom, with a pile of clothes on the floor, stuff on my bed, shoes on my bean bag, a straightener and blow drier on the floor, and cleaning supplies on the desk. I picked my room up on Saturday, but wow! It has already erupted. Finals are later this week, as well as projects being turned in. I wrote a story as my final English project. That was turned in on Friday. But in my scatterness, I lost my flash drive in the parking lot, and had to turn it in today. I turned in a rough draft on Friday, and so my teacher graciously was okay with the plan of my turning in the real deal today. I am usually not a messy person. But with this spring weather, I have found myself being lazy and not wanting to do anything! Not picking up my room and such!
I haven’t blogged in such a long time, and I know I haven’t put pictures up. My grandpa and my mom were talking about how I haven’t put pictures up in a while. Maybe one day. When I come to visit you this summer, I can show you a ton!
Today was my last academic Tuesday! It was exciting. I was Wednesday through Monday left, and then Tuesday we go on a merit trip, and Wednesday is an Awards Ceremony! Friday the 5th is graduation already! It’s crazy. My baby brother is graduating on Friday the 29th! He is going to be little boy blue in a play they are putting on! It is sure to be sweet!
Today I presented a Bible project in front of the girls in my class, and my Bible teacher, and he also happens to be the Pastor of my church! It actually wasn’t terrible up in front of him. I was a little nervous, but it was fine! I was in the time limit, so I was happy. I don’t know what my grade is yet, but hopefully it is good! That was my last and final project for that class! So that is an accomplishment to have one class finished! YEAH!
I talked to my friend just a while ago on the phone. She is coming to visit my family this summer with her brother! It is going to be an exciting time! I can’t wait to see her! It has been since November since I last saw her, and that was only for a short time, it was when she came to my dad’s visitation/funeral.
Yesterday, was sixth months since my dad went home to be with the Lord. We went to the cemetery, and my mom put flowers there. It looks really nice. I know he is not really there, but still…
Well, for now I had better get going. I need to finish the year strong. I would encourage you all to also finish strong in whatever God has placed before you! You all might not be finishing school up, but maybe something else big in your life. How easy it is to slack off! But let’s keep going! Let’s give God all the glory!

Kristina and Isabella

Kristina and Isabella

"Saving the World, One Picture at a Time"

Today, Kristina and Isabella ventured off with two main objectives in mind: having fun, and taking pictures. Well that is Isabella did the taking, Kristina did the posing. The reason: Mother's Day was coming! Kristina's mother wanted a picture of her, and well, she cut it a little close, but have no fear, out of all the 177 pictures, I think Isabella and Kristina could find one or two they both liked. Isabella, is an ispiring photographer, and practiced on Kristina,( Kristina says she does an amazing job!)

They went to the most serene place on earth, and found some amazing backdrops, and also tooled around an apple orchard. It started raining gumballs, but they dodged them, and perserved on into the afternoon.

Isabella was spending the night at Kristina's, and they had to stop at the store on the way home. Kristina's mom called, and while on the phone, one of the dogs (Sir Mac) got some raw chicken. Have no fear tho, he didn't eat it!

Now Kristina and Isabella are safe at home. Next weekend they are getting together with a bunch of girls, so this weekend they need their beauty sleep, so till next time, they will dodge the flying gumballs.


If you think that all Kristina and Isabella do, is get in trouble with monsterous beings, and flying gumballs, we really do have profitable times together. This morning we met and read about Deborah (from the Bible) and how she "kept a sword in her hand, and a song in her heart!" They do encourage each other, build each other up, and are there for each other....and then all the fun!

Till next time...
