Today I got a new haircut. I got 9 to 10 in cut off! We are planning to donate it for a wig for girls with cancer. It looks like Selena Gomez's when it is short. This Cristmas was a lot of fun. I went to my Aunt Terri's house. Lindsey, Matthew, Joanna, Jordan, Torhi, and my parents all went. It was a lot of fun because Katy, Alyson, Neal, Bella, Alynn and other family all came. We also got to see my Nanny Whisenhunt who now lives with my aunt. She is doing great. All of the Finley girls got a kindle for Christmas. I love mine!
Fifth grade is going great so far!
At the begining of summer I went to the Dry Creek Florida College camp for a week and had lots of fun. I can't wait until next year so I can go back. A few weeks later, my softball team went to state but did not win any games:( But we did pretty well for our first year at state. Since then my dad, mom, and I have gone to Eureka Springs and chilled. At Eureka Springs we did some shopping and went to the Passion Play. It was fun and we bought some small random things. The Passion Play was pretty accurate to what the bible said. With some money I made I bought a glove today for softball and I am ready to break it in for fall ball.We have been hanging around the house a lot and I have been swimming. I am 1/2". away from being 5ft!! I have grown a lot recently and have gottten a lot of new clothes for school and the rest of the summer. I have not heard who my teacher for 5th grade will be but I am excited to know. The school supply list came out a few weeks ago and we have already gotten all of my supplies. Next month during the week of our gospel meeting Lindsey, Matthew, Joanna, Jordan, and Torhi are coming for Bella Norman's wedding. We hope to go camping and float the Buffalo River while they are here.
I am super excited that it is springtime! Mom is excited about getting to plant flowers and getting to see little green plants starting to grow. It was very warm and sunny the beginning of the week but on Wednsday there was a lot of storms and tornado warnings. Since then it has been rainy, overcast, and windy.
Well everything went fine with my tonsils. I don't think I will want to eat any jell-o or pudding for a long time. I was able to eat almost anything after the third day.
I am doing softball again this year and am very excited to start! We are already starting to practice twice a week. We should start playing games around the end of this month. GO ANGELS!! At Christmas mom and dad got me a new bat bag and it is MUCH nicer than the old bat bag of my older brother's, Matt. On Tuesday of this week mom took me to Hibbits (a sporting goods store) to get some new softball pants.
Last night I went to go see Alice In Wonderland. It was one of my friend's (off my softball team) birthday. First, we went to eat pizza, then we went to the movie. It was very different, but I really liked it. I want to see it again when we could buy/rent it.
On Thursday mom and I will be at my aunt Terri's house. On Friday we will go to Bowling Green to see Lindsey for a couple of days. I will miss school on Thursday and Friday and then the next week is Spring Break. Dad will be at Granny and Granddaddy's house in Alvin while we go to Tennessee and Kentucky. I am excited to see my big sister and for Spring Break.
It has been snowing since 1:00 in the morning here. The snow is really wet and great to play with. We got a call about 6:00 to say that school was cancelled for today! It snowed all day and I played in the snow a little this afternoon. I also made SNOW CREAM! Yummy! Dad has to spend the night at work because the roads are so bad and a hard freeze is supposed to happen tonight. School is cancelled for tomorrow too. We're keeping warm inside (with the power on-yeah!) watching movies and drinking hot chocolate.
Today mom and I went to the ENT doctor to see if I need my tonsils out. I keep getting strep, so he said that I should get them out. So...next Tuesday morning I have to be at the hospital at 6:30 am to get my tonsils out. Bring on the Chic-Fil-A ice cream (it's the best) and popsicles!!!
