Blue Skies

We finally had a few days of blue sky this week! It was still very cold, but oh so beautiful. Yesterday I helped with the Bosie Special Olympics. Policemen with the Olympians are running the torch and stopped at the High School. The band played the Olympic theme for them as they ran into the school and then the National Anthem at the beggining of the ceremony. It was lots of fun but really COLD. We ended up having to wait about 45 min. for them to be ready. By that time I couldn't even really play my flute it was so cold and my hands so stiff. But it was nice to talk with all my friends for that long.
Alan and Connie are here before Rowan's blessing. We are going to drive up before church and then back after. I think I'm taking a pair of sweats to wear while we're in the car. I don't like wearing skirts very much.
Today there was a Ten Virgins skit put on by the stake relif society and they invited the YW. It was very good. I could tell that lots of work had been put into it.

It's snowing again. I knew it would cause its winter, but that doesnt' make me any happier about it. I'm a girl who likes the sun, and I haven't seen it in ages. I miss our sunny Colorado winters. Mom drove off the road this morning on the way to the temple. Luckily she was safe and the car wasn't hurt at all. She didn't end up going to the temple after all. I haven't been since summer so I'm ready for a youth temple trip. My first week of school has gone ok. I went to a b. ball game last night and played with the band. It was lots of fun, but people were suprized I came. It gets kinda boring for some people. But its the only time I get to see some of my friends, so it was lots of fun.

Second Semester

This semester isn't as bad as I thought. I started Wellness and even though I miss band, Its not as bad as I was imagining. I think I was remembering softball practices and imagining doing that in school every day. I do really miss band though. The locker rooms are right next to the band room so I can hear them warming up as I get dressed. Luckily I have time to go play at basketball games with the pepband. So I haven't completely abandoned the flute. :)
It was great to go to Parma. I got to see lots of relatives and baby Rowan. She is sooo cute!!!! I forgotten what new babies are like. Neiv had her birthday while we were up there. She has the prettiest curly hair. And Boston was running around all over the place. He is so active! Even though this semester isn't as bad as I feared, I still can't wait untill summer!!!!!!!!!

Finals week. AAAAHHH!!

Well, school didn't end up starting on Monday. We had a snow day. It was a pretty fast week of school. This next one will be extremely scary. Its finals week and I always freak myself out and think I'm going to fail everything. I have finals Tuesday through Thursday and have a half day on thursday and no school Friday. It will be such a good weekend. I'm hoping to get together with some friends and celebrate not dying over the week. I spend alol morning studying and then went to a YW scrapbooking activity and fireside. It was really good fireside, the spririt was so strong. The speaker asked us to make a tender mercies journal where we wrote down all the tender mercies we noticed for at least the month of January. I've always ment to do a blessings journal and nows a perfect time to start. I had a really good time. Our stake is trying a new thing where they have firesides and get togethers (like the scrapbooking) for just the YW every once in a while. We've had two so far and both were lots of fun. I hope they last!
The snow was finally starting to melt and then it snowed again last night. I wasn't very happy. I've discovered since I moved here that I don't like lots of snow. I miss our Colorado winters where it would all melt in a day. I'm definatly a mild winter person. I can't wait till summer!!

School and Finals

School starts tomorrow and I'm am not looking forward to the homework and tests. Finals start in a week and I am still going to be brain dead from break. Annica's first day of YW was today. I think I was just as excited as Annica.
Because we weren't able to see family for New Year's I went to the dance. It was lots of fun even though they played way to much tecno. Before the dance there was a video that was sent out by the YM and YW general presidency. It had really good stuff in it but we were all cracking up. It was like the mormon version of High School Musical (one of the dumbest movies in the world by the way). I saw two people I know preforming which really exciting. One of them was a girl from EFY. She's the one that drank the goldfish. The other was a guy I went to school with in CO.
