end of the school year party

Every school year at the end of it me and my friend letitia throw a party to celebrate the end of school.This year i felt that i was lacking the memory of singing into your hairbrush and eating junk all was letitia so we decided to throw a kareoke party where we decorated hair brushes in pompoms,pipe cleaners,and beads. We watched an assortment of musicals and sung into our hairbrushes it was a ball....i'm gonna miss it here in brooks! :( but hopefully i can still have fun partys like this with friends in medicine hat. :)

summer victory

This past week we went out to Crowsnest pass to quad and to go to the summer games! The quading was phenomenal and exhilarating. I was participating in the summer games swimming which was on Friday and Saturday. Early Friday morning i woke up at 6:17a.m worrying that my alarm had not gone off and that i was gonna miss the swim meet ,but i happened to have woken up 43 minutes to early.I could not get back to sleep no matter what i did because the nerves in my tummy were squirming around and having some kind of party! FINALLY!! my alarm went off and i was outta bed and getting into my swim suit and getting everything ready SUDDENLY i realized that i had not shaved my legs and arm pits yet so i run into the mossey's aunts cabin and do a quick shave because the last thing you want a t a swim meet is to have little black hairs protruding from noticeable places(legs and arm pits) So finally we are in the car and leaving to get there. When we arrived i had to jump into the freezing cold pool and warm up(not SO fun)...then they started the races mine was one of the first ones i had 400m freestyle i took off 10 seconds from my previous time giving me a 6.55 happy and pleased with myself i hurried over to check the standings(places).My heart fell when i looked and saw that i had come in last place with a 4th place standing and was half a second away from getting another bronze metal...but i had to shrug it off because i had my next event right away so i ran over to marshaling and was put into my proper lane. this was my 2nd race of the day and i hadn't even been there for less than an hour...getting on the block i was thinking about how everything should look and feel...The whistle went to get up on the block i got up and into my ready position soon the beeper went and we were off . Kicking as hard as i could i swam to the wall and did a two hand touch and a swivel around...i ended up coming in 9th out of 23 on my breaststroke...on to my next stroke i had backstroke with excitement i worked my way over to marshaling again( i was excited for this race because backstroke seems to be my best stroke)When i was marshaled i was put in the fastest heat so i knew the pressure was on....getting in the water and grabbing onto the pole i was thinking please let me do good in this race...the beeper went and everyone was kicking as fast and as hard as possible....i was doing terrific for the first 25m but then i had to do a backstroke flip turn(which i have major problems doing)so when i got to it ,it was perfect and i had a fast turn-over unlike another girl which put me in front of her securing me a spot in the finals....relief filled my heart as i climbed outta the pool and went to talk to my coach he had a big smile on his face and he asked me how i thought i did...i said smiling that i thought that it was terrific and he said yeah i agree with you...i made it too the finals in it because i got 6th place. My next event was the 100m freestyle this was not my forte and i don't know why i went in it but i did SO i had to try my hardest... getting on the blocks fear filled me what if i do really bad? or what if my time is worse than I've ever done...but luckily i ended up getting fifth which also put me in the finals!so my morning had been productive and had gotten me to 2 we just had relay which was SO fun! i love relays cause theres no pressure and your team is happy with you no matter what! So we ended up getting silver in our relay which consisted of Emmalyn,Kira,Alissa, and me! That was the very first medal i had ever one! but the afternoon came quickly and nervous and anxious we all were because it was finals and was the real thing. First was my backstroke which i had started out in 6th place when the race started i knew that i was never gonna beat the girls i was against...but i pushed through the pain of the last couple of meters which gave me a 3 rd place but it also had to do with the girl beside me who looked behind her to see how far from the wall she was which gave me time to barely out touch at the wall!!!!!!!!!!!!! Glory filled my body as i figured out that i had just gotten 3rd making me the 3rd best backstroker in southern Alberta!!!!!!!!!!!!!! next was my 100m freestyle which was pretty bad because i was exhausted from my long day of swimming ....but i got 6th place (but i still go with my place before cause it's what i would've had if i hadn't petered out) so i still say i got 5th making me the 5 best 100m freestyle swimmer in southern
I was SO proud of all I've accomplished and very happy that i finally was able to have the glory of winning a medal after 4 years of swimming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

I can't wait for my next swimmeet to show how well i can really swim!!!!!!!!! :)

breaststroke time:49 seconds
backstroke time before finals:47 seconds -at finals:44.74 seconds 100m freestyle:1.29 minutes 400m:6.55 minutes relay:2.33.35 minutes

This past weekend me and my friend Letitia made a trip to medicine hat and we decided to stay at the lodge hotel!When we got there we decided to look around to see if their were any hot guys.We didn't find any until that evening, we were lucky enough to get a balcony room. We found that it is very fun to sit on the balcony and laugh and talk. But when that evening came we saw a couple of really hot guys sitting right across from us on the porch and they started shooting their laser pointers on our balcony to catch our attention. So when we realized that it was them we started waving back at them. Then they would come like down to almost our floor and wave at us.But then they came down our hallway leaving a note at our door telling us their numbers.So we began texting them who knew that we could be such! I had such a wonderful weekend with my best friend Letitia ,shopping,and boys.

This past weekend we went to Claresholm for a swim meet!Since we had to do a little driving to get there we decided that we would wake up at 5:30a.m . Grumbling and looking better than ever i trudged out of bed and down my ladder to the floor. Tired and dazed i looked around trying to figure out why i was up so early and what kind of stuff i would need for my swim meet.Finally i got everything in order and we were off. When we reached the Claresholm pool i was greeted by some team mates and we went to hope in the pool for warm up. Jumping into the water i was tired and unfocused but soon snapped out of it as the cold water quickly got my nerves and brain going!
My first event was the 100m freestyle(front crawl),and then i had 50m backstroke and then i had lunch. But throughout the day i was busy snacking on many varieties of food that would help me keep my energy up.This weekend was a day6 that we had been waiting and practising for ,for a whole month 1hour a day every other day and then 1 hour and a half for Tuesday and Thursday.Every other team had been doing the same and this was a chance to show off your new skills of the year.So going into it you are more competitive than ever you are looking to please your coach,teammates,parents,and yourself.
In the afternoon i swam a I.M (butterfly,backstroke,breaststroke,and front crawl),50m breaststroke and then we all headed home for a well deserved sleep. This week we begin training for next weekends swim meet which is in Pincher Creek!!!

i am so excited
p.s. i am sooo glad to have such a Wonderful coach!:)

River Rafting Disater

This week Letitia and i decided to go on this river rafting trip with the grade nines,well we went into this thinking it was gonna be all fine and dandy but believe me it was worse than worse. So when we reached Calgary we also reached heavy rainfall and we were thinking oh yeah,we can do this it"s just rain.But when we got out of the bus we were hit by tidal wave of coldness,and were already shivering before we even started the trip.So it was already off to a rough start well obviously it could not get and worse,but then he led us down to the boats and fear struck!Well I've never been in a raft before i did not know what to expect it ended up being fine and things looked like they ,might get better but it didn"t get better and our hands were too numb to hold onto the t-bar of our paddle and so we started slowing down and getting even colder.Finally we reached the first part of our rafting trip and it was time to take a break for lunch.We all stripped out of our soaking wet rain jackets,boots,and sweaters and had lunch.Then we were done lunch we and we took a tour of the water treatment plant and i can tell you it is nasty!there was crap everywhere it"s an amazement that they get our water so clean.After that we decided that instead of rafting we would do some water tests so we all got our little kits out and began doing the tests!Well me and Letitia were assigned to take the temperature once we were done that we had to help this other girl who was looking for bugs!We could not read the darn instructions and have them make sense to us and so we waited for our guide to come around and help us!When he finally got to us he said "Did you even try to read them"he said with a questioning face saying (do you even know how to read)yes we did and they don't make sense.Well he started to give us a lecture on how this is a learning experience and how you don"t learn how to brush your teeth overnight.Well then we had to stick a net in the water and collect bugs while we got our samples but then we had to rinse them off into the bucket.I was holding the net over the bucket and rinsing the stuff into it and all of a sudden he grabs it from my hands and starts yelling at me cause i was doing it wrong!So this was one conflict but then at the end of the tour he was asking questions and no one from our group was answering because it was mostly grade 7's and so he said to his assistant that his group was dumb in front of everyone and all the kids in his group heard!So we had crappy weather and were stuck with a crappy rude guide this was not the field trip i expected and was not up to par.I was very disappointed but that's all right because i have tomorrow and our trip to the gault museum to make up for it!:)

In grade 4 i met a little girl named Letitia Wandler little did i know that i would soon be very good friends with her.We first met because we had the same colored scissors. After that we were insufferable and would go everywhere together. We have been friends for almost 4 years now and are expected to be friends for much longer. I told her that i was mormon and told her about my beliefs .I asked her to say oh my gosh instead of the other word it was nice that even when it sometimes slipped out she would apoligize and begin working on not saying it again. This is what i would call a good friend someone who will make life easier for you to live and make it easier to make good decisions.Since then Letitia and i have taken many trips together and have had many church activities together. Today people refer to us as Letitia and london,we dress the same,we think the same,and we like the same stuff!The reason i am writing this on my blog is to wish my best friend a very happy birthday!I am so lucky that when we went shopping for scissors i decided to get the pink ones because thats how i met the bestest friend ever!:)Hope you have a very happy birthday Letitia...HAPPY BIRTHDAY :)HAVE A GOOD ONE!!!

this blog is dedicated to Letitia wandler my best friend ever!!!!!!:)

This year me and my friend letitia tried out for badminton and made the team. There was going to be a grasslands tournement at the end of April .So with a goal in mind we started practising and worked toward going to grasslands. On Monday a week before the tournement we had a minnie tournement in the school to see who made it to grasslands. We lost our first game but won our second and third .This guaranted us a spot in grasslands.Heads high badminton raquet in hand we marched over to St.Joes were the tournemnet was held.Letitia and i had the same shorts, shirt, and shoes on everyone thought that we were twins, it seems that when we wore the same outfit we were joined in victory and would hit the birdies that our partner could not reach.We made it to the finals and were going against our good friends ,who ever won ,they would go to zones. We ended up losing and were against a team that we had already beat, so we thought oh this will be a piece of cake...whatever they came out guns blazzing and beat us by five points.We ended up getting bronze! We went home with our heads held high and a medal around our neck.Yahh i am so proud of how well Letitia and i played:)
