Happy Birthday!

My baby sister has grown from a giddy little girl to a maturing teen in the blink of an eye. She amazes me everyday. She has blossomed into a chatter bug! There are times when I just listen to her thoughts and ideas and wonder why I never thought of such a thing. Her mind has become very innovative and extremely OUT OF THE BOX! She has plans for everything now- plans for Austrailia, her summer house, private jet and even photographing for National Geography!

I am confident that which ever avenue Bethany choices to pursue in the future that she will do it with great diligency, poise and grace. Her future is an open book full of possibilites.
Bethany's charisma and passion for life are a true inspiration. No matter matter what she is faced with, she does it with her all! Here's to the girl who brightens my day. You are beautiful on the inside and out. I am proud to call you my sister!

I am thankful to have you in my life! I love you, B.

My Oh My How Things Fly By.

In the past week or two I have been musiced out (if that is at all possible), I have been to both the Band and Chorus Concert at school as well Seussical the Musical at the middle school. Because I have not been keeping up with my blogging at I should have I will not post ALL of the pictures from all of these events. However feel free to check them out on Facebook. For those of you that don't have Facebook but still want to look at them I will link to them later so you can still see them.

My day started out fun. We had kite day for Geometry. We had to build kites and then bring them in today and try to fly them. So we spent 2 hours out on the football field "trying" to fly our kites, playing football, softball, eating and of course taking pictures.
Then nothing out of the ordinary happened in 5th period then I got to 6th period anticipating getting my yearbook and finding out the election results. Which of course just to torture us poor students both were done at the end of the long 2 hour period. ha. I constantly found myself turning my head to check the time to see if it was ten minutes before school got out so we could find out who won.
When I heard Ross Black come over the announcements saying "Pardon this interuption...." my heart jumped and I got nervous but excited at the same time. And as if they hadn't tortured us enough already the didn't say the results for sophomore class council because I was on main campus and most of the upcoming sophomores are on 9th grade center so they didn't announce it on main. I was going crazy. Long story short my friend got ahold of somebody who was on 9th grade campus and said that Brandon Hightower had won president.
I am a little disappointed that I didn't win but I soon realized that this now just gives me more of an opportunity to be more active in FCA next year where we are in strong need of leaders if we want to be able to keep the strong band of good Christian peers together that we have this year.
As I promised earlier I do have pictures of my election posters for the ones that wanted to see them.

Now unfortunately for the tear jerker part of my day. As I got in the car after school my mom told me that Little Nate Ferrell has not recieved good news this week. As I read Ambers post, tears started to roll down my cheek. That is certainly not the news that Brother Jay, Sister Amber and the girls wanted to hear but I know that Our Great Redeemer will guide their sweet family through whatever they go through in the future. Please be in prayer for the Ferrells in their time of need and that they might find the strength they need.

Dancing in my PJ's

It's been awhile since I last blogged so I thought I'd give a little update. My summer has been great. (all 7 days of it) I have been walking around the house singing all day!

My, oh my, what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin' my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay

I started my summer job last week and love it! I am nannying for a lady who has the sweetest chunk-a-munk around town. We play, go on walks, blow spit bubbles and rock ourselves into a deep slumber. It's fun, entertaining and often times adventuresome! I have a feeling it's going to be a great blessing throughout the next few months.

That's all for now folks, I'm off to make more merriment!

It is with great sadness..

that I must tell you that I have a new computer. Now most of you would be like Oh Awesome! But no it's not my computer crashed yesterdayand we restored it but in the process of restoring I had to erase my computer completely. So I have no pictures or anything on my computer. Luckly I have uploaded most of my pictures to facebook so i can at least save them onto my computer again. They won't be the best quality but they will still get the point across. :]
So if you have any pictures please email them to me so I can get my computer back up and running "bethany style" haha.
