A Year To Remeber

This past year has truly been a great one! I haven't posted since February of last year (!!) I am have set a goal that from now on I am going to get better at posting stuff! So to start off I thought that I would do a recap of my freshman year of high school! It was by far a lot better than I thought it was going to be but it still had its ups and downs!

There have been so many great moments this year and tons of memories made, I can not even begin to tell you all of the wonderful stuff I was able to do this year, but for the sake of the length of this post I will condense it down to my TOP 3 BIG MOMENTS for the year! So lets get right into it starting with number 3. 


Disney Cruise (Spring Break 2015) #3:

Now, i know that my last post was about a cruise, and it was pretty similar so for this one I will just keep it short and talk more about my whole spring break! Since this was Kayla, my sisters, senior trip she invited one friend, and she got to pick what we did! She wanted o go to Universal Studios really bad so we did! so before we set sail aboard the Disney Dream we spent two days at Universal Studios in Florida! 

As you can see we were selfie stick pros! 
We mainly went to see Harry Potter World, but the park was awesome in general! i would give the park 5 stars! out of all the rides we went on (witch was like all of them) my all time favorite would have to be the mummy ride, i really don't know what the actual name of it was but we called it the mummy ride, it was awesome! All of the ride were great, and i would definitely go again! 

And like always the cruise part of the trip was awesome! I have never had a bad experience on a Disney Cruise, and they defiantly know haw to throw a pirate party! 


Dallas Spring Trip With Choir:

In April I was able to join with about 75 other kids from my schools choir and take a trip to Dallas! Now, some people thought I was crazy for going to Dallas, because it is only Dallas, but I had never really been and I was determined to have great time! I am so happy that I did because I really, truly think I would regret not going!

The best way to tell you about this trip it is to give you a quick summary of each day starting of course with day one, day one was just a travel day for the most part. We did make a couple of stops. Now if you live in Texas you will understand the greatness of Buc-ee's, now Buc-ee's is basically just a big gas station but for some reason it is great! after our stop there we continued our journey to our next stop witch was lunch, my friend and I had Taco Bell for lunch, and the funny thing about that is that since we were kind of running late we had to change in the bathrooms...so i can now say that i have changed in a Taco Bell restroom! After our adventure at Taco Bell, we finally arrived in Dallas were we went to dinner then went and saw an awesome production of The Wizard of Oz!

The second day was spent at 6 Flags, witch is basically a big amusement park with all sorts of rides! It was so much fun because i had never been and I was with friends and could do what ever i wanted (within reason)! unfortunately we did not get to spend the full amount of time because of storm that came through, but once we got back to the hotel we all got our pajamas on and then all went down to the lobby and played games and hung out! it was lots of fun!

The third was another travel day other than we went to the House of Blues Gospel Brunch...now this was something i had never done and it was something! I had never been so surprised at what happened, I was not expecting it at all...it was insane, there are not enough words to describe it, it was awesome but it was also surprising! then after that we continued on our way home!

Now the time you have all been waiting for...*drum roll* 


Youth Conference 2015: 

Youth conference was one if the best weekends of my life! For youth conference we were able to do a service project with the city of Houston, where we were each given a different area and we got to help lean up that area and make it look nice! 

My group was assigned to help repaint a local chapel, when we arrived at the chapel it was in really bad condition, but we all put a smile on our faces and got right to work! it took us a long time to paint the church, only because it was in really bad shape and we were not as focused at some points as we were others! But in the end we all ended up with more paint on our clothes then on the church!

The finished product!

 After we had lunch we were told to go and work on a cemetery, now when I saw the cemetery i was SHOCKED! It did not look like a cemetery at all..it was very bad. But once again we all just got right to work and made it look so much better than before! 

My awesome family! 

Well, there you have it! My top 3 big moments of the year! Starting next week I am going to try to post more about what i am doing!
