On Sunday I went to a lovely going away party for my exchange sister Crepe. This Saturday she leaves to go all the way home to Thailand. I'm really going to miss her. It has been such a blessing getting to know her, and she was one of the people who really inspired me to … Continue reading Highlights
I got a new camera for my exchange. I will post some pictures from my trip tomorrow when I have wifi. We rode the street car. Historically a commuting public transit feature, the street cars in Kansas City were discontinued in something like the 1970s. Most of the track was ripped out, and in some … Continue reading Vacation at Grandma and Grandpa’s house
On Sunday we drove to Kansas City to visit Grandma Ally and Boppa and the cousins. It was an easy drive. To be honest, I slept most of it. Plus a little Harry Potter audiobook and a pb&j and before you know it we arrived. We had a delicious Fathers' Day dinner with three fathers. … Continue reading Vacation
One of my absolute favorite places, with my favorite people, at my favorite time of day. For Grandma Ally and Boppa's 50th anniversary, they got a family photo at the beach.

It went well and my documents are off to New York! I also skyped Sebastian at the crack of … Continue reading Going for the Visa
I'm finally done with my last high school finals! The week was a little crazy. It's still surreal that I don't have to go back next week. My finals weren't too bad-- most of my classes finished learning new material before the AP test in May, so we have had plenty of time to review … Continue reading Last Day of School
The seniors with 4.0 and above GPA were invited to the 4.0 Banquet, and we were to bring an influential educator. I brought Mrs. Morales, and we shared an excellent dinner with my friends and family. Good job on all the hard work everyone!
I have a summer job! I work at Green Sense Farms. It is an indoor farm where lettuce and herbs are grown, packaged, and distributed (look for them in your local grocery store!). Most mornings I help to pack lettuce or herbs. I also help to plant and do dishes for the plants. I've really … Continue reading Job!
