Fourth of July

I love the 4th. Its so fun to stay up late and watch fireworks. This year my mom and our neighbor got together a neighborhood flag raising ceremony. Afterwards all the kids got together and made a movie. So far we've made four since our family moved here. I'm hoping to put some of them on here. Eventually. Then we went and saw WALL-E. I found it really cute. Some of the things in the ending credits didn't really add up though. Like where did all the fish and other plants come from?? They had just one seedling. I won't say any more I don't want to ruin it for anyone who's planning on seeing it. We had a barbecue with some of our family friends and did fireworks. Me and my friends and Annica watched 1/2 of Spiderman 2 while we waited for it to get dark enough. I love that movie. It was a really nice day all arround. I'm having a really nice summer. It is kinda stuffy in our house without ac, but I manage by living in the basement. Its like 10 degrees cooler down there.
I'm also unpaitiently waiting for the fourth book in a really good book series. Its called Breaking Dawn and comes out Aug. 2. I was going to preorder it but I'm going to be at EFY when it comes out. So I decieded to just borrow my friends copy and buy my own when the price goes down. In like two years.
I realized my birthday is about a month away on the fourth and I was shocked. It feels weird to realize I'll be 15. And even more weird that I haven't been thinking about it for months. Normally I obsess over it and have it all planned by the begining of July. Its definatly a change. My wishlist hasn't changed much though. Books and clothes and stuff for my room.
Except this year I am also asking for something else, just not for my birthday. Jenna and I are both wanting to get a Leopard Gecko. I've always liked animals. Not just dogs and cats but more exotic animals like falcons and geckos. Jenna and I are currently raising up money to buy all the supplies and Gecko while mom and dad decide if we can get one. I'm really not sure if they'll let us get one. Mom doesn't like them and doesn't want a smell (even though with the right cage bedding and proper care they don't smell). And I think they don't think we can take care of it on a regular basis. In the past I wasn't very good about taking care of the cat. I think the main reason for that was that my dad would always try to be nice and feed him for me. But then I couldn't get into the habit of it . This time it will be just me taking care of it (Jenna wants to help a little bit) and Jenna and I both earning money. I don't know, we'll just have to wait and see.
