What We Do To Keep Our Cool =)

First, we grab a long plastic tarp out of the garage.
Next, we get the water hose and wet down the tarp.
Then we proceed as explained in the pictures.

The approach.

The Slide.

The Pre-splash.

A New Favorite Item

Ryan has, for some time, been wanting to buy a unicycle. He has several friends who can ride them and really wanted to learn. He bought one, with his own money, off of eBay and it arrived on Wednesday....

He is one happy, happy boy. =)

He has been practicing and is definitely improving. So far, several crashes, but no injuries...
I, Jenny, on the other hand, have been run over several times and used as a landing pad.

The weather in Missouri is starting to look like England's weather...

Day 1: Rain

Day 2: Rain

Day 3: Rain and Fog

Day 4: Cloudy

Day 5: Rain with a mist like nature

Day 6: Rain

Day 7: Sunny!

Day 8: Rain

Day 9: Rain and Fog

Day 10: Guess.

Okay, well, I might have exaggerated a little bit...It isn't really that bad. :)

I just want to outside without getting wet! I mean, playing in the rain is lots of fun, but being out in the sunshine... is just lovely!

Of Things...

Well, this is a post about the things that we, well really I, have been up to recently...

1. The HIKE 3 was a blast! Laughter and smiles ( and sweat!) were present most of the time, and lots of memories were made. =)
Dad and I made it all 20 miles and Cordell and Ryan hiked 11 miles after the lunch stop. The only post-hike problems that we encountered were a few blisters, a little soreness the following day, and some bruises from diving while playing volleyball afterwards.

2. Band is almost over.. :'(
For the past two semesters, I have been learning to play the trombone at Kay's Music Studio in Sullivan. I have really enjoyed it and I guess that I am making progress since Miss Kay has put me in Concert and Jazz band, which are both lots of fun.
Fact: Miss Kay is, in one word, funcrazymusicallygiftedshortunexpectedattimesandawesome.
Our final concert is in one week and I am really excited about it!

3. I am working on sewing a jumper for my 4-H clothing project and it is coming along nicely! Here is the pattern for it. I am sewing dress C (or the middle one. =)
I am using a lovely checkered-ish brown knit and I can't wait until it is finished.

Tomorrow is going to be fun.

Tomorrow is going to hold lots of adventures.

Tomorrow is going to be spent with friends.

Tomorrow's tomorrow is going to mean sore muscles.

Tomorrow is...

THE HIKE 3!!!!!!

Tomorrow, my father and I, along with my brothers for part of the time, will be hiking 19.3 miles with the Fine Linen Drama gang just for fun! Which lots of fun it is sure to be.

Pictures and more post on this much anticipated event later. :)

My mom just informed me that on my blogger profile, I answered the following "Random Question" like this:


"When you hesitate before hitting snooze on the alarm clock, are you being lazy?"

My Answer:

"Umm....It doesn't really remind me of losing a tooth. If it did though, I would be sure to explain it to you. "

lol... Sometimes these things happen, you know.
