I know it's been a while since I posted on here... I'm just lazy :) Don't worry- I haven't abandoned this little blog! Here's what's been going on in my life lately:

- Doernbecher Week!! During this week our school raises money for Doernbecher Children's Hospital through raffles, selling paper "dolly heads" that are hung around the school to show our support for Doernbecher, a car wash, and with a dance at our school on Friday where all proceeds go to Doernbecher. For the past two years I have been extremely involved with all of this organization, and this year is no exception.  This year, my best friend Naivit and I have been put in full charge of all Doernbecher events and organization as the 8th grade co leaders of it all. This is a huge job and although it is completely volunteer work, it is something that I take great responsibility and pride in doing for Doernbecher. 

-Braces!! Today at an orthodontist appointment I got new rubber bands to wear for two weeks... They are insane! Can't open my my wide enough to barely stick my tongue out. They are sore right now, but at least it's only for two weeks and then... Off with the braces!! YAY :) I'll post pictures when they're off.

- In Social Studies we just finished off our unit on the Civil War, and I'm more than happy with my final test grade of a 49/50. The whole test was short essay form. Yuck. Now in Core we are moving on to immigration and family history. (So grandparents, if you know of anything "shocking" or exciting, or dramatic, or interesting information in our family history- leave it in the comment box!)

-Our really good family friends (the Brown's) who now live in Grants Pass are coming to visit this weekend, and so I am super happy for that!!! Their 4 little kiddos are some of my absolute favorites :) I'll post photos later.

That's all for now!
Thanks for stopping by at this blog :)
