Swimming with my best friend

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to stop by and tell you about what I did this Saturday.  I went swimming with my best friend at her house. We had a lot of fun, and she even taught me how to float.  We also got to play with her guide dog Bristol, and one awesome thing was I got to meet a real wolf named Thunder! He is so cute.  At first I was a little afraid of Thunder but once we got used to each other we were pals. After we went swimming, we watched the movie, “Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey”  Then we had dinner,the hamburgers and fries where really good!During my visit, Jessica, her mom and I  also talked about the fact that one day I would like to get a guide dog of my own.  I know that having a guide dog is a big responsibility and I still need to give it some deep thought,  however, seeing Jessica and her guide dog Bristol Jessica and Bristol

working together and Jessica being so Independent with Bristol by her side, makes me feel like if I do go into the journalism field that with a guide dog I can do any beat that comes my way.  Come on!  Follow me “forward together” to Jessica’s blog Journeying through life-Life’s Journey Jessica’s blog

Six more weeks of school for this summer term

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to drop a line saying that I have started the last class before I get my AA degree. I am getting so excited with be almost done and having my degree.  Having said that, I know that my last class will be lots of hard work because my teacher has a lot of work that she wants us to do.  So therefore, to keep me from falling behind I am doing everything I can to keep ahead. I have already done my notebook with all the chapters in it, it took me three days to do my notebook because of my mild Cerebral Palsy, but I worked hard and got it done! I am so proud of myself! I also did my two first homework assignments and have made both 100’s on them. Tomorrow I also have to write a math bio, which shouldn’t be that hard to do.

On today’s note though, I am finishing up the chores that I have to do. I have to clean my Betta fish tank, and do some laundry too.

Shopping wih my cousins

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to let you guys know that I had a great weekend.  I went shopping with my cousins at the mall.  I got me some new clothes, a book on hamsters, and some stuff for my dorm that I am going to need for next fall.  Also, for Mother’s Day, I went out to a local seafood diner with my family. The food was good and we had a nice time.

Happy Easter Everyone..

Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter.  My Easter was spent having fun with my family.  After a lite lunch, filled with ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, potato salad, hot rolls, and cake and ice cream, my cousins, grandparents and I went to the beach.

While at the beach, my little cousins and I played in the sand.  We made all different kinds of molds, and built sand castles.  My older cousins also took me out to the water. I love the water, even though the waves were big and I did get knocked down a few times I still had a blast.

Happy Easter everyone!
