Okay....

so I know that I have not posted in a while, but I have been sooooo busy.  Here is a small recap of what has happened the past 3 weeks.

  • One week we did sister cities, that was when Sakurako came.  Sakurako is a Japanese exchange student that we had come and stay at our house for a week.  She lives in Mikawa, Japan and is 14 years old.  It was a lot of fun to have her come and stay at our house.  On the first day she was here we took a tour of downtown then we went swimming at the city pool.  On the second day we took a tour of Yorozu, they are a HUGE supporter of sister cities. After that we took a tour of the elementary school.  That evening we got to take her to church.  On Thursday we, actually I don't remember what we did during the day. At night though, they put on a ceremony for us it was really good.  On Friday we went to Lake Winni!  It was very fun!  After lake winnie we went out to eat at sticky fingers.  On Saturday we went shopping all day- it was sooooooooo fun, it was tax free weekend here which made it even funner.  The next day, Sunday, we went to church in the morning. After church Sakurako packed to go home and we had a small good bye party then she was taken to Nashville were early Monday morning they would depart to go back to Japan :( . It was fun while it lasted.

  • Another exciting thing that happened was that school started back again. I started HIGH SCHOOL!!!!!!  It is a very exciting thing. I am going to a different school than Lucy is, I have a very small class- a total of 11 people are in my entire grade!  It has been fun. 

  • Not much else has happened since school started this weekend has been fun though! Last night Meredith Matheny came down and stayed the night with Alyson, (I couldn't go- I wasn't feeling well)  Also last night it was family night at Hickory Creek (Ella and Molly's school) They watched Nims Island.  Anyone ever seen it?  They said it was really good.  Also last night it was Warren County's first football game of the season!  They lost- of course.  Lucy plays in the band so she go to see the whole game for free!- She had to play in the band the whole time though.  So then this morning our stake had a service project. We cleaned up one of the cemeteries. It was tons of fun because I got to see a lot of my friends that don't live her. After that some of us went swimming in the Catens pool.  Then we just all hung out till tonight, when we went rolling (and got caught)  since we got caught we helped them clean it up. We had a friend with us that does not belong to our church and we told him this is how you go rolling "Mormon style".  It was fun!  now it is time to go to sleep and let me tell you- we are all going to sleep well tonight!

That was so much fun when we went rolling. Next time let's not bring Garrett a.k.a. (The shredder) If he wouldn't have shredded we wouldn't have taken so long. It was still great though. :) I loved having Merideth over. :) She is so great, adn fun. I want her to teach me Bella's Lulliby. Well see you later. :) -Alyson

It sounds like you are having a great time! I'm glad you like school. Why did you choose to go to a different school then Lucy? Did you take pictures of rolling?

I am going to have to listen to bella's lullabye.
