Summer's almost done?

School is about to start back up! Tell you what people, I have been SOOOOOO blessed this Summer! I've been thinking of some things that have been happy for me that I'm thankful for this season. Let's see...

New Macbook Pro!!! Well...maybe...

This chick lost her first tooth! She got to go to Braums with the tooth fairy ;)

I get to be in an art show at school! With this thing.

We got to clown a lot.

VBS! Two of them to be exact. "Rock of ages...your word is always true..."

We got to go to Branson and hang with our CO homies and play at Silver Dollar City! That was def a blast. This pic is some handsome boys at Pizza Hut up there :)

My mom and dad both had birthdays AND an anniversary this Summer!

I fell a lot more in love with this handsome fella. I know, I do that every day, but... :)

This guy made it into the nursing program at school! Proud sister? Why yes I think so.

I got to witness two of my most beautiful friends get married to awesome guys! Happy happy joy joy!

Aren't they so pretty?

And as for now, I'm gonna go thank God for the Scholarship I got and the dress I need to go buy and Summit church camp that I'm gonna go as councilor. And I'm gonna pray for my sissy and her trip to EA. Miss that girl like the dickens!!!

Happy rest of the Summer everyone!

"Because Your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise You. So I will bless You as long as I live; in Your name I will lift up my hands."

~ Psalm 63:3-4

Never have I wanted to keep a child more.

This is me and my 'Niva. She's one of my AWANA kiddies. I can kind of call them all mine, since I've taught/helped in all their classes (cept Shawn, but I had him in VBS, so). But this one is WAAAAAAY mine! She is such a cutie cuddlebug! About Birdie's age and always ready to do what's next. One thing I love about her is that she's VERY observant--when someone drops a book, she runs from wherever she is to go pick it up. Once when the little guy spilled milk and I was cleaning it up she came from another table with some paper towels! She's the sweetest thing ever and I wish I could take her to live with me someday :)

"Yeah, we just thought we'd get together and's just something we do"

The title is a quote from Beraseth (it's her name backwardish, those of you that know her say it out loud and work it out verbally who it is :P), isn't it lovely? BELIEVERS is having their biggest class of all time, and I'm proud to be graduating with this set of the most beautiful people God has made. Oh don't believe that they are? Well, check THIS out...

All us gals...Chyn, Kris, Manah Hahan, Beraseth, Britter, Emy and me

10! :D

And the guyz...Ethanator, Skeeter, Lukey, Cabe, Landypants, Teej, Micah, Mimi, 3ring, and Jake

All of us! Count us...17! :D

The epic jump :)

Me and my Emy

The tornado kick. Daddy and the Mighty Wordsmith had a little fun afterward with shots like these, and this one turned out just COOL.

So you see? Flat-out GOOD LOOKIN peoples huh? No, I'm sorry, I'm not giving out numbers for anyone. There are a zillion more pics of this shoot and I can't pick my favorites even! If anyone is interested in seeing pics of us as little childrens and taking pics of us in dorky hats looking great, come watch the ceremony! :D

Christmas party with my peoples!

We just had a WAY fun Christmas party with a bunch of fun folk! QWELF is the best party game in existence, by the way.

The Elf, Steve, Me, Hannah, Skeeter, and JT...not knowing the camera is there

Steve and the Elf with my weapons looking frightening

QWELF!!! How much better does it get than getting to hear the Elf and Steve sing, Skeeter be a showgirl, and Hannah singing opera? Whooyeah!

Jax and the cute

QWELF some more and Mafia later!

If I don't post again till afterwards.....


Back to the blogoshere? Maybe?

Oh yes indeed - for now. At the pressure of many friends I am posting. But I'm not appeasing them entirely - I'm not posting on HSB hahahahaha! The Meggy impossible streak strikes again!! Just to catch you all up with what's up with me... I post again.

First matter of interest - We are moving back to Arkanesia. I don't truly want to, as I'd tragically miss my most amazing church family that has really been a family, my dear friend Cherry and everyone in our hs group, fencing my heart out, and numerous other things. But there are some things I'm excited about moving back for too, so we shall stop talking about this. It is an unpleasant subject.

If you want to keep up with me, get Facebook. Don't say you don't have time if you are a blogger. You just type a status, give your friends' statuses (stati... statusss...?) a quick once over ON THE SAME PAGE and get off! And keeping in touch with people is soooooooo easy! It's an amazing thing even my mom is on!

Church potluck today was awesome! I love AHBC and will miss it like the dickens. Though things are coming together that make me feel better about leaving. I was playing keyboard for the services and dearsweetdarling Nikki stepped up and said she'd take over for me! Dad was leading Saturday night service and awesometalentedmusicallyinclined Clayton stepped up and took it over without a glitch! I had been teaching funnyhelpfulstinker Andrew drums and he got good enough to play for service and I was loving it. But then the drums were going. But just as Dad was going to give them up, a box of brand new drums for the worship team showed up and surprised everyone! I tell you what - GOD IS AWESOME!!!!!! Like my mom said - "if God wants drums in the service, He'll send them". I believed it - just didn't figure He'd send them before I left :) Speaking of wonderfulawesomesweet church family, here they are now!
Jen, Pam, and me
Me and Megan
Me, Uncle Melly, and a bottle of tea (I'm ducking backwards way low heehee!)

The 4th was fun! Had cuzins over for burgers and hot dogs, went to service and played for the last time :(, and then we all went to Shelley's for cake and fireworks! The real fireworks were delayed too late for us, but we still saw a lot of good ones :)

So there. This is my post. I hope everybody is quite happy with it, was it worth all the hype lol? Maybe I'll post again soon... maybe :P

Aw... I shoulda brought a bomb.

Thought I might post on what's been up real fast...

Two field trips this week! One at National Weather Research Center and one at the Earthquake center. I took yearbook pictures at both, and that was fun! I may post some of them down here soon so everyone can see some of my new people.

Lucy's sick:( So I'm staying far away.

I wrote a fanfic for RANGER'S APPRENTICE for Lane and Lou. Meant to be a few pages, turned out to be over 14,000 words long. But twas quite fun.

My darling Cherry inspired me to write more of my wizard story, but I need some ideas now...

Fencing is AWESOME!!!!!!! Need to work on not getting too excited and losing all technique:P

Took the standardized test for the state. If I don't score about perfect I'll be pretty embarrassed. It was ridiculous easy.

Bird slept through the night in big girl undies! And I was happy...:) She's getting big, and that gets good and bad:P

Buzz the pup has been pretty good.

I was innocently trying to get some eggs, and I set my plate on the stove, and that burner happened to be hot, so when I picked my plate back up... Yeee-ah. My finger's all scabbed up and it itches:Z

Soccer season is back! Funfunfun!

Dad just got an electric guitar and effects pedal!!!!!!!! It is pretty sweet!!!

If you ever see a free V-synth GT keyboard sitting out in front of somebody's yard, get it and bring it to me, because it's $3000 and I want one:0 Shriek!!!!

Um... what else? Ooo! The time changed! Cool-ish.

I have a new idea, read it here.
Just finished babysitting at church after I forgot and then got a call and then scrambled over there super fast feeling like a ditzy jerk.

Haven't talked to my Emy in forever, courtesy of wacky phone plans that have no consideration for the feelings of mile-away friends. Need to really bad now, so maybe this weekend.

And now, ladies and gents, here are some pictures... if I can get it to work... aHa!

Look it's Lyddi!!!! At one point in the field trip we had nothing to do but take pictures in 3D glasses:P That's a little small, huh? Let's go bigger... um... hurry up and load...

Ah, here's Cherry looking scientific!:D

And Sticks lookin cool!!! His quote is the one I used for the title.

Dewey in the glasses havery!!! (that's weird to spell... ya know... have - ery?)

So I'd post more, but it's taking forever and I'm going to bed, so if you want to see more coolity, go here. I think all the cool pics are on page 5.

Peace out and lotsa love!


My People

The other day we big kids went to B & J's birthday party. These guys are the coolest! A bunch of other kids from our homeschool group were there too, and we played football, kickball, silly string war, a little frisbee and had a jolly good time! My Dad got pictures, so now I can FINALLY gratify some of yall's wishes to see some of my new friendses and people!

B with some coooool shades. He turned 13.

Me. I was called "Miss Bob Sanders" most of that day.

JJ. He and B are brothers and he turned 10.

A little height perspective... doesn't SEEM like I'm that much taller!:P It's actually real fun having shorties for friends:)

The totally awesome Gracie-pie. The tall guy in the back is That Willson. That Willson is taller than my Dad and he's 12. Yes. Shorter guy in the front is Jake.

B signaling safe. Wishful thinking - he was out by a mile!

So folks, this is just a smidge of what I do in CO and who I do it with - funfunfun!!!!!

The Arkansas boyz

By popular demand (and Lana is the very essence OF popular demand)... a post on the subject of Wingycuzin visit!!! I'd been planning to post, but there was so much to post about that it seemed a bit daunting. So, here you shall hear of the Wingys. A good time to post about them, as I just got off the webcam with them about 10 minutes ago. And throughout the year you will probably hear about Christmas. Ya never know!

Well, the Wingycuzins FINALLY drove up to our house, which happened to be quite devoid of snow or ice, making it difficult to sled. (If Justin were here I'm sure he would note that it was NOT impossible - that just wasn't ground we were keen on exploring at the time:P) They brought along their Wii, and we played a bunch of Mario Kart! They had even created a Wii guy that looked like each of us that we could play as - I was not bad, but Simon Cowell was better:P

What else did they bring? AIR SOFT GUNS!!!!!!!!!!!! You've heard the quote from our dear Dr. Suess: "Day, play! We play all day - Night, fight! We fight all night!" Well here it was just the opposite - we fought all day with air soft guns... and I'll tell you what the nightlife was like in a moment:) But we played around the school, which was fun until the police kicked us to the forest. That was fun too. I'd post a picture... but maybe I will later. Got challenged to a duel by the General Drallen - so I picked the weapons. I got Dad's heavy machine gun and he got a pistol!!!!!! Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!! Dad counted out (roughly) 20 paces, then I whirled around and let her loose. Pegged him who knows how many times, but he was determined to shoot me even if I shot him through the brain. But he didn't. But he restored a certain amount of dignity during...

The NIGHTLIFE!!!!!!!!!! We play all night!!!!!!!! RED ALERT II was IN! We switched up the teams between Dad, Mr. Wingy, Drallen, Sticks, Com-10, Jakeo, and me. Won some, got beat some, but Drallen beat me on our game (singular) of Rise of the Witch King. I was tired... what time do you say it was Drallen?

And then they LEFT. They're still gone. Right now. Depressing. Seems like they should always stay. Well, they're all still fit as ever - Drallen's still singing "Bare Necessities", and I swear Com-10's grown a foot. His voice change was a little creepy to get used to for the first 10 minutes, but we're all ok now:P Jakeo and I had a good time tying people's shoes together, playing drunk outside of DICK'S SPORTING GOODS, keeping up with each other at the zoo, and slinking. And that Jax will be taller than me, like, NEXT YEAR, it's REALLLLLLLLY scary! But he was a good boy - he and Jakeo said "What is thy bidding my master" EVERY TIME I told them to:D

Even though I hate it like anything when they go, it's fun having them here! We all miss em a lot, but we just webcamed and that was about the funnest thing! Can't wait till next time they come... the weather will be nicer then for serious air soft fights!!!!!

Since I don't have a pic of them to post, I will post a random one...

Very nice. It looks like me and Com-10 when we decide to stare each other down for no reason, then walk away mumbling! Heehee! Let's play online sometime you guys! Love ya!

Meggy T the INVINCIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop eating glass!!!

Yistaday we played flag football with our wonderful new homeschool group teens!!! And Cherry was there!!! We didn't get to talk much, but we passed some interesting, TOP SECRET notes!!!!:P It was a lot of fun and I feel like I'm getting to know and like everybody much better (even though I did have to suffer humiliation on account of the COLTS:P) I made some good flag footbally plays though. Got penalized twice for unnecessary roughness to my sister:P And NOW Cherry Luthien knows how to play football!!! It was quite lovely all around!!!
We went home, ate lunch, and found out that Grandma and Grandpa were coming that very day!!!!! Hooray!!!! They came and it was very happy!!!!
Ended the day by going to a Rockies game!!! Ya know how much more fun baseball is when you're actually AT the game? Insanely a lot!!!!!
Oh yeah, and Lucy made some cookies that turned out to be mush and were REALLY good!!!
Tonight we're going to my great-aunt's to celebrate my grandma and aunt's birthday with some home-cooked Korean food!!! Yum!!!
(Note to self: Defend the Colts from my Uncle's booing at all costs:P)
