Happy Valentine’s Day to all my friends!  Have a good one!  Y


A few days ago my mom, brother, and I, went on a walk…Here’s a pic of me and my little brother, and a picture of a tree I took on the way back.

Abby, Brady, and I on Saturday…




Abby and Brady


Today I’m going to go visit my aunt and cousins!  Last time I saw them was two Wednesdays ago at the hospital, when my aunt gave birth to Christopher Brady Mann.  I watched Abby and played with her while Annie was in labor.  Abby is a blast!  She’s gotta be the cutest, funniest two year old alive.  She has such a sense of humor for a little kid.  I’m so glad that these two are my cousins!  I wish my other cousins could be out here in Cali too.  Nick, Ben, and Natalie live in Wisconsin, and I wish they would come visit!  Or maybe I can make it up there this summer. *hint hint* 

Anyhow, here are some pictures of Abby and Brady.  The picture of Abby was taken on Christmas!


This is the newest addition to the family!  A 10 pounder!  Ouch!


I love these kids!!!!




Yep I’m kinda bored!! =)  What’s new peoples? 

On Friday, February 29th, I will be at a law school in Stockton, CA.  Some people in our homeschool group are participating in a mock trial.  I have to memorized a lot of lines, but I can get credit for it.  It should be fun!  I have to work hard at it if I want to win.  The lead attorney for the prosecution is determined to win, but so am I.  I’m the lead attorney for the defence.  I believe everyone involved in the trial is part of our homeschool group, except for the judge.  The judge will be from the actual court there.  This is going to be interesting.  lol  It’s kind of nice though, to get involved in something again.  I haven’t done anything like this since I lived in Fairfield and was in a Christmas play called Operation Christmas Child. 

I’m still doing school work of course, cleaning, etc.  Fun fun.  lol  I had a piano lesson this morning in Hayward, and mom let me drive back.  Yay, another hour and 20 minutes to add up to my driving time.  I need to start making longer drives, so I can have 50 hours of driving complete by April of this year.  Ahhhh!!  lol 

Well that’s all for now. 


I had a good Christmas with my family and friends, and a good New Year’s start too!  I’m getting back to normal now, and I just started school again today.  It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve read something for school or have written a paper.  About a week before Christmas day I got really sick.  Something like a 24 hour bug, and the next day I was much better, but not 100%.  I got over it quickly after that, but then on Christmas night,  my throat started hurting, and it turned into something bigger.  I don’t know what it was, but it’s finally going away, ending with a cough I’ve had.  I’m glad it was nothing really serious.  God is good!  I had a good weekend this past Saturday hanging out with a bunch of my friends.  I made my first long drive on Saturday.  It was a little over an hour, and it was in a storm, too.  I was fine, but my mom was nervous.  And I wasn’t driving wreckless or anything…give me a break mom!! lol  Just teasing…I guess she just worries a lot.  Since my first long drive was in the pouring rain, it’ll be easier now for me to drive in nice weather.

 So, only one more year of school left after this.  I’m glad. lol  I’m going to start putting more money in savings instead of spending it. (My weakness)  I’m getting better at it though.  I’m trying to save up for a car, since I have to pay for part of it.  It will be a used car, most likely a Toyota, but will probably still cost a pretty penny…well to me at least.  When I get my second job in a few months I’ll be able to start saving more.  Like I’ve mentioned before, I work for my dad’s buisness, but only when he needs me, and that isn’t enough to make good money because I don’t work a lot.  Annnyhow, that’s part of my life right now. 

God bless,
