This video will defintly get you thinking so I decided to post it. What if we, as christians, decided to step out of our comfort zone to make a differance. Imagine the effect it would have.

Yesterday our family went to the state fair out towards Syracuse. We all got up early, hopped in the car, drove for several hours and successfully beat the crowds. We had a lot of fun.
Mom and I saw one the goats doing this and thought it was quite funny. I guess he just needed a little boast from his friend.
Every year a artist makes a sculpture out of butter. It was pretty impressive let alone that it was made out of butter. This is this year's butter sculpture. It was quite amazing.

Today, I went to visit the school to get my schedule since school starts in a week and discovered that I am only going to have lunch every other day. This really annoyed me but whatever. I hope to see if I can fix it but I'm not sure if I can. I really don't want to take another advanced course on top of what I already have. Especially if I'm missing lunch.

Yesterday we took a trip Grandma's (and Grandpa's) house. As soon as we finished eating lunch we all jumped in the car and scooted off to their house. I took a quick pic of the Erie canal as we drove over it.
We found grandma on her back porch watching the birds when we came. I never got a chance to take a picture of grandpa because he was taking a nap.
Alicia set up this playmobil house with grandma's extensive playmobil set. I turned of quit nice. Unfortunately she had to pick it up when it was time for dinner. We had a scrumptious meal there too and after we finished Aunt Martha, Ben, Hannah, and Uncle James stopped by to drop off the sleeping bag we left a cousin camp. Oh, and you can't leave grandma's house without some skittles and a life saver. It's just the way it works.

This really doesn't have anything to do with the rest of the post but what ever. My family was eating dinner when I asked Mom:
"Do you remember the time when you almost ran over Sherman's tail with the lawn mower and he ran all the way to Phoenix St."
"No." she replied.
" Good because it never happened."
That is a good sign has not gone crazy. At least not yet anyway. It will probably come before I know it. jk

1. I want to go up to a random stranger and pretend like I know them.
2. I want to visit another continent and I want to visit Florida (because everyone has been there except me).
3. I want to complete a half iron triathlon.
4. I want to start a church. (quite a challenge)
5. I want to dress up in a potato sack (maybe smear some mud on my face), knock on a stranger's door, and beg for money. (of course it's really not the money I want to do it for)
6. I want to build a tree house that consists of more than one tree.
7. I want to get married and raise a family and maybe adopt a few kids. (Christine is quite inspiring)
8. I want to serve my savior!
Some of these things are kind of not that important in life but oh well. Some of them are just for my amusement. I tag who ever thought that this was cool and wants to do it themselves.

Here's Aunt Rachel taking Kotty for a walk on here Rollerblades. Personally I thought she was crazy but maybe that's just because my dog pulls a lot.
Here's Ben going down the zip line which is a lot of fun.
Here are my two sisters, Audra and Alicia and cousins Ben and Micheal
Aunt Rachel made pancakes for breakfast. Yum!
After breakfast, Ben, Micheal and I had a scooter race which was a ton of fun.

^This is before^
It was a nice dresser like that, it just looked like it belonged in a little girl's room.
^This is After^
We also had to change the handles so they would match a little better.
I won't be able to post tomarrow because I'm getting together with all my cousins. (rachel's and martha's kids)

Today was sort of a lazy day since it was the one day that my Mom doesn't have to clean a house (which she does once a week to bring in a little more revenue) or watch other kids.

Today I am spray painting my bed with sam and my mom. It's quite fun.
The to pieces have a fresh coat of primer. The second one's only half done because we ran out and my mom had to run back to the store.
This is sam complaining because I accidentally cut him. Poor Sam.
Oh, and I ate a plum for lunch.

Today Alicia and Caeden, my neighbor decided that they wanted to do a fashion show and made Audra and I be judges. It was interesting. To the left is Alicia's outfit for the wilderness round. She got 28 out of 30 from the judges. Caeden's outfit was a little strange so I decided not to show it.
To the right is Caeden's outfit for the casual round. He got a 30 out of 30 from the judges.
This is Caeden's outfit for the foreign round. He got a 23 out of 30 especially because he didn't even know what country he was modeling for.
This is Alicia's outfit for the foreign country round. She was modeling for Japan. She got a 30 out of 30.
