New Background

So you might be wondering why I put up a 9/11 background but really I just thought it was pretty. I mean I really care about what happened and all, but it is way past that time of year.

My Animals

So as you know, I have a dog and a cat. Here are some pictures of them.

This actually is just me accidentally flipping the camera. It looks pretty cool though, huh.

Dad had the ladder out so I climbed to the top and took this picture up high.

The cat was digging.

Griffey was sneezing here. I got it at just the right moment.

She can climb trees now. But sometimes she's scared to get down.

Yes, she's sleeping on the toilet.

How to Peel a Pomegranate

So I know this is a little late but you can still buy pomegranates for a few more weeks. It's not too late! Pomegranates are my favorite fruit and I could eat a whole one by myself (well if Dad and Kourtni don't want some).
So first you'll need a cutting board, a knife, a bowl of water, and a pomegranate.

Then cut the pomegranate in half like so.

Then cut both halves in half.

Take one half ( you can brake this in half) and pick out the seeds with your fingers. It's best to do it in the water so the white skin floats to the top and the seeds sink to the bottom.

The remains of the pomegranate should look like this.

The rest of the seeds should be at the bottom of the bowl. Only eat the seeds where the juice is firm- ish. Don't eat the mushy ones.

Strain the water and then you can eat. It is ok to eat the seeds inside the juice.

I can't believe I've never played clue before. I played this version of clue( disney version) last night and it was so fun. If anyone is wondering what to get me for Christmas, this is what I want! Well the normal game of clue.

The Kitten

I never thought this would ever happen in my life but it did. I now have a cat. When I was little, Kourtni and I always wanted a cat and so we'd ask, "Will you get us a kitty Daddy?" Then he'd say something like," Oh sure I'll get you one tomorrow," but he never did. And finally we have a cat. She's really cute but she's a lot of hard work. One way to keep her busy though is to get a string and tie something funky on the end of it and then let her catch it. Then pull it away. Then let her catch it again, then pull it away. She also wakes us all up in the morning with her wailing and meowing. I don't know if we're really going to keep her but for the time being, I like her.

Her name is Cub because she stands on her hind feet like a bear.

Introducing the cat to Griffey.

We put her in this little Doll bed when she was asleep. This cat is spoiled.

We just got back from registering me for 8th grade and I'm on the blue team. That's good because blue team's better for 8th grade than green team is but so far, most of my friends are on green. That stinks but I'll still see them in the hallways and at lunch and break. Plus I have choir with most of them. I don't really want to go back to school but I can't stop it so I'm trying to "embrace" it.

School Shoes

So today Mom and I were out shopping and I got my favorite pair of shoes. They are Rocket Dogs. Then a few weeks ago, I bought some converse shoes with a funky design on them for only $25. Thats pretty good for converse. Both pairs will be my new school shoes.

I love them!

My Birthday

So, yesterday was my birthday and it was really good. Mom and I did Kenpo in the morning and let me tell you, it is hard! Then we went to Mom's classroom and worked in there for a little bit. Then, because I turned 13(hooray), we ate pizza at Lucky 13. We were really hungry so Kourtni, Payton and I polished off a whole large pizza. Once Dad got home, we had chicken fettucini and then Kourtni and I went to mutual. For the activity, we played fugitive (but we played it in the light and no one had cars- we were just on foot). So the objective was to be the first one to get from the church to Albertson's(for those of you don't live in Idaho, it is a grocery store). My friend Lexi and I just wanted to do it for fun so we just, you know, walked/ran through Simplot fields, up the hill, and through the parking lot. Then one of our leaders at the other end of the lot was calling for us to come quick and, what do you know, we had won. Well I say we but I got there before Lexi and she insisted that I won so I got the "Trophy". If you want to call it that.

Then my Beehive leader Sister Lowe gave me a happy birthday balloon and candy.

Kourtni got me a cute shirt.

Payton got me some candy and an orange organizer.

Alyssa mailed me a picture frame/picture of her and I (sorry Lyss, I had to put stickers on it).

Mom and Dad got me finger nail polish and remover,

A camera case...

and... a... CAMERA!

I love it so much. Plus the case color is really cute.

Jeans are the best. I've forgotten how much I like them because it's been summer. But since school is getting close(eewww) and I made $40 baby-sitting last night, Mom, Kourtni and I decided to go shopping at Ross. I got two pairs of some sweet Billabong jeans. Both were dark blue but one pair was skinny leg and the other pair was flair. I really liked them but when I showed Dad the skinny leg ones, he says " Those need to go back, those are the jeans gay people wear!" I laughed when he said that and told him that only guys who are gay wear them and that they were girls jeans. Then I showed him my other ones and he liked those better so he eased up and said," What do I know, I'm a middle aged dad." Haha :) Anyway, I think I made a good "investment" in them.

Boise Zoo

Sorry I haven't  done any thing for a while. So Mom, Payton, Alyssa, and I went to the zoo today. I was so excited because I thought the new African exhibit there would be cool and I hadn't been there for a long time. So we got there and the animals seemed sort of depressed and we couldn't even see any sometimes. No hyenas, no red panda, no snow leopard(or at least we couldn't see them). Plus it was smokin' HOT! It was no wonder the animals didn't want to come out of their caves. We were going to ride our bikes there but we didn't and I'm glad. I did like the giraffes and the monkeys and the penguins. They were cool. We had a picnic in the park afterward and then we went to the pool for a little bit. The water felt really good too. Anyway, I'm probably not going to that zoo for a good 5<

Raft Along

On June 30, there's this thing sponsored by the Boise Police Department where you raft along the Payette river. Then you get lunch and a free t- shirt(I love getting t- shirts). I'm going to do it with my friends Valerie, Megan, and Amanda. Payton is doing it with his friends too. So if you want to raft some rapids, go to www.boisepal.org
and print out a waiver. It'll be fun:D


Our bikes are the best. I love going on rides with my family around Boise. I wonder what we look like to other people with all of our cruisers. But anyway we took a ride around town yesterday attempting to ride over to Sandy Point but it would have been dark by the time we got there. We rode by the Boise river which was extremely high and swift and through Surprise Valley where we took a couple family pictures with our bikes(I would show pictures of it but I don't have a camera). Riding my bike is on of my favorite things to do. Oh, and Mom will you ride bikes with me over to Lucky Peak one of these days, please?

Now I'm Almost Done

Finally school is almost over. We only have two days left(but for me it's only one cause I have two half days). I'm looking forward to two end-of-the-year parties with my friends and the end of EOC's. I am so sick of study guides and reviews but I'm going to miss seventh grade. It was really fun. I just hope the summer goes by slowly. People always tell me they get bored of summer but I don't. It's my favorite season.

Almost Done

Finally, school is almost over! We only have 13 days left. This year has gone by really slowly but fast too. Anyway, I can't wait for SUMMER

Last night,my family and I went to see the movie Earth. It was really good. The movie had amazing nature scenes and time lapse photography.(Like it would show the grass growing or the cherry trees blooming). It made me wonder how they got the shots of the lions and cheetahs but it showed just how at the end. To make the movie even better, the guy who has the really cool voice narrated it. I loved this movie.

I have a track meet tomorrow and I signed up for the mile. See, we get marked off points when we don't have people filling up all of the 
events and so I signed up.
Zoe was going to do it but backed out at the last minute. 
I don't see why though because she says she wants to train more for it but
she can run a mile faster than I can.
I am actually kind of excited for it but mostly nervous.
I'm also doing the triple jump, 4 by 100 meter relay, and 4 by 200 meter relay.
We also have these annoying really thin tank tops and 
short shorts with built in underwear things in them. I am definitely wearing under armor tomorrow. It's supposed to be cold. So anyway, just updating my blog so, yup, bye. :)

I just saw a bumpits commercial on Nickelodian. So funny.

New Hair

So I cut my hair over spring break for locks of love and this is what it looks like now. Since I don't have my own camera, I can't show you what my ponytail looked like after it got cut off but my Mom might put something on her blog about it. I was sad but now I'm getting used to it and I like my new hair. 
The only bad thing about it is not being able to put it in a ponytail. (The layers in the back fall out) I've figured out a few ways to do cute stuff with my bangs, though.
It's hard to see pictures of me with long hair and then know that I don't have it anymore. 
But I do like it and Aly, you did a great job ! All my friends love it and so do I.

I'm Sick

Mom gave me a cold. My head hurts, my nose is stuffed, and I'm sleepy.:( Dayquill and Nyquill(did I spell that right?) don't really work and tissues are now my best friends. It's okay though because now I don't have to do very much and, so Payton and Kourtni don't steal my blanket, I say, "You're gonna get sick if you use that." It works really well. Anyway, I need to write more on here so I thought I'd share that with you. Bye. Oh, and now that you've read this once, read it again in a stuffy-nose voice;)
