My new Favorite ride

So Yesterday, my sister and I and some friends went to Lagoon. It was way fun but I think my new favorite ride..which is an old the Bumper cars. They are so hilarious. I mean..we all get a kick out of driving around in these little cars and trying to run into each other as hard as we can. It is so funny. Whenever Jamie and I ran into each other we would just sit and laugh. Another thing I learned from lagoon is that the rides are what you make them. Re-entry was my other favorite for the day. When you scream as loud as you can with your hands in the "rock on" position, any ride is amazing! It was a good time!!

Today, Alli Brown, Jamie, and I took pictures with photobooth on Aunt Sue's Mac. It was so funny. Aunt sue has a great desktop picture now! Here are some of the pictures we took and hopefully I'll get the video I took up here sometime.

So this is what has been happening with me lately.

In flag football I got hit again and got another bloody nose. The guys are just way to competitive I tell ya. I mean, am I not allowed to catch the ball? I guess not. But yesterday, flag football was way fun. I actually got to touch the ball more. Maybe the guys are realizing that, yes, I can catch and throw the ball.

Work has been going good. I'm kinda getting tired of it but hey...sometimes we get to do things we don't have the greatest desire to do. There are a few kids I work with that I have a very hard time with. I just wish they knew how to work. Instead, they do everything else but what needs to get done. Sometimes they do things that make it so I can't get what I need done. I hope sometime they will learn that when you are at work, you need to work. Funny how that is...

One night, I told Jamie that she could come into my room if she could jump from my door to my bed. She made some silly attempts for a long she was making these attempts, she pulled out an old swimsuit of mine and said that I had to wear it over my clothes and jump to my bed. I tried to put the swimsuit on but I couldn't get it past my hips. I just started laughing and then Jamie started laughing and I don't know about Jamie but I was laughing so hard I was crying. She finally made a good jump to my bed and said that is was my turn. I was a major chicken and I couldn't do it. Oh well. It was a good laugh. Luckily we didn't get a picture or video of me in the swimsuit...but here are some videos of
One of Jamie's attempts

We were laughing way hard in this one. It kinda sounds like I am crying.
I have the swimsuit on..but luckily you can't see it.

Jamie made it without hurting herself!

Instructions for life Part Two

Here are the other Instructions for life! I know you have all been anxiously waiting...sorry it took me so long!

9. Open your arms to change but don't let go of your values.

10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

11. Live a good honorable life. Then, when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.

12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life.

13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don't bring up the past.

14. Share your knowledge. It is a way to achieve immortality.

15. Be gentle with the earth.

16. One a year, go someplace you've never been before.

17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds the need for each other.

18. Judge your success by what had to give up in order to get it.

19. Approach love and cooking with reckless ambition.

Pretty good I think.

Instructions for life Part One

In my Mental Aspects of Sport Performance class, we talked about instructions for life. It was really awesome and I thought I would share them with you. This are only the first eight...I will get the rest of them on Monday.

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
- In china, the definition of crisis is an opportunity while riding a dangerous wind.

2. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

3. Follow the three R's: Respect for yourself, Respect for others, and responsibility for all your actions.

4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

5. Learn the rules so you can break them properly.

6. Don't let a little dispute end a great relationship.

7. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

8. Spend sometime alone each day.

So there is the first half. I really think it is awesome that we are going over this in class. It is nice to know that there are good people out there with good values that aren't members of the church. I hope you take these to heart and be excited for the rest! I sure am!

Flag Football

I am in a flag football class and it is way fun..except when creepy guys guard me and the other boys get way too into it. Anyway, today I was playing and for an extra point after a touchdown I got to be QB. All the guys were just waiting for me to throw it but to their surprise, I just ran it in. It was so awesome! That was like the play of the game or something..haha. Another time I ran to get a guy's flag and he juked to get away from someone else and went the opposite direction to which I was going. Needless to say I was clobbered. My glasses flew off my face. I hurried and found them and they were not broken. I put them back on my face and realized that my face hurt. I was going to start playing again but then my nose started bleeding. It was a double bloody nose...blood was coming out both nostrils. I quick ran to the bathroom and got it all taken care of. When I came back out, the other guys who I had played with earlier all asked if I was okay but the team I was on the moment didn't really say anything. I didn't like playing on their team so much anyway. Hopefully I will be back to my original team on Monday!

The new team

We had a soccer game last night. It was way fun! It is the start of the fall session and so we had to be official and sign waivers. I can't sue the arena anymore..bummer. Anyway we have two new people on the team and luckily they are way good at soccer. It sure makes me happy. We were up by enough points so I got to play goalie. Man! It was scary! I blocked two huh! Uncle Fred was nice enough to coach me on the sidelines. I sure have a whole new appreciation for Dave...he is a good goalie. Oh, and Jamie got her second goal...first of the new session.
