Fun In The Sun

Today was a fun-filled day. I played basketball and hide- and -seek with my cousins, Luke, Levi, Saige, Landon, and Emma. Then went to the pool club. It was nice and sunny. It's fun jumping and diving in 9 feet of water. We had races in the pool. It was nice to take a break and have a snack of gummy worms,pretzels,popcorn, and a capri sun. Not very nutritious but oh so good!!

Before going home I stopped with my aunt and cousins at Ikea. I was glad to help with my cousins while my aunt bought a bed for Emma.We took warm cinnamon rolls home for a treat.
I think I'll go exercise and work off the snacks.

until next time,

Welcome to my world

I can't believe summer is almost over.School will be starting soon.Hopefully,there are still a few more days for swimming,bike riding,and times for swinging under the tree with a good book!

Today we went to my grandparents church and got to hear our family friend share about her times in China.She is amazing!It's great to see how the Lord is working in China.

We went to Culver's for lunch today!Yum!

My mom and I are redoing my bedroom. I can't wait. It has been pink for soooo long.
I am changing to lavender. We bought the cutest bedding from Target.It's called preppy girl.
I can't wait to enjoy my new room.

Got to go for now.
