I had my first cooking lesson today!!! There is this family that goes to our church and they are amazing chefs! Sooooooooo, they are giving me, and my 2 sisters cooking lessons for the next 12 weeks or so... Today, was our first lesson and we made some really yummy ravioli!!! We made 100% of everything...I'm not exaggerating! We made the cheese, pasta, filling, and the sauce! Yummy!!! Sorry I dont have any pictures for you...we forget to take any!

Quote of the Day

Okay, I love this quote and I completely agree with it! I think its great advice!

"Anything thats human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we are not alone"
-Fred Rogers

Salmon and Reading!!!

On Thursday, we went to the Ballard Locks with a homeschooling group! The Ballard Locks is where they let the boats transfer from fresh water to salt water (and vice verse) and they have the Salmon Ladder there! The Salmon Ladder is where the salmon travel up the ladder (which begins in salt water) to get to fresh water, to get back where they were born and lay new eggs so that new salmon are born! The salmon were huge but they were also beautiful! It was fun to watch them jump out of the water! We had a great time and I would suggest it to anybody who has a free couple of hours laying around!

I read an Amazing book this week! Its called Hunger Games...It has a ton of action, mystery, adventure, and romance!!! My perfect kind of book! I also read the second book called Catching Fire which just came out last week and is also fantastic! AND, I read Eclipse for the fourth time! The funny thing is though, those books have only taken up 3 days of reading for me, and I wish they would have lasted a couple weeks! Oh Well! Apparently I read too quick and so its my fault!

Im homeschooling this year and I am really excited!!! Over the years, I have gone in and out of public and home schooling... The last 2 years I have gone to my public Middle School, but we decided that this year I am doing homeschooling! All 4 of us are at home this year, plus Sarah the baby is here at home too! It will be busy! But Im still excited!!!

Fiesta Time!!!

After Rachels wedding, all of the family and close friends went back to my Aunt and Uncles house to have a huge fiesta!

Rachel had this fantastic dress to party in and Edgar had his Mexican suite!

This is the amazing dress that Rachel bought me at the same time she bought hers...It takes SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much energy to wear because of the corset in the back, but its still really fun!!! Rachel, me, and 3 of my cousins were all wearing these dresses! (sorry I dont have a better photo)

Mariachi Band played fantastic music!!!

Here are the wedding colors! Isn't the setup cute?!? This was also the dance floor later that night, they cleared out all the tables and it transformed!

Sam and Sarah (my little brother and sister) were so cute! They danced for hours that night! Sam was dipping, twirling, and lifting Sarah to the point that all of us just stood around and watched them!

Its that time of year again!!! Girls Camp!!! This is absolutely my favorite week of the year! Camping, zero boys, my best buddies at my side, and a really great spiritual experience! Who wouldnt love it!
My favorite night was when everyone cried and hugged random people (hugging people is my absolute favorite thing to do!) We were at golden hour and they had everyone come up and say "I Will" and then what they would do in their lives... mine was "I will ponder daily about what I am reading in the scriptures" What made everyone really start crying was when at the very end they played the song I Will by Hillary Weeks and they had the lyrics for all of us to sing along to... It was amazing...the spirit was SOOOOO strong and it was an unforgetable experience for me and many others.
