What's Been Happening Lately......

I know, I haven't blogged in a LONG time! I've been pretty busy! First of all, the trip to Missouri was wonderful, and we listened to almost two audio books along the way! When we got home on Thursday night, we finally walked for more than five minutes! (:

On Saturday, Mary and I auditioned for our studio's ballet company. It was tons of fun! Kathryn Morgan, a soloist from the New York City Ballet came and taught the class for free! But, the sad part is that we didn't make it): I know that there is always next year, but it was still disappointing. I think the main reason why is because Mary and I are SO tall. I'm about 5'7 and Mary is 5'9, and all the other girls in Company are short, so we wouldn't fit in very well. On the bright side, if we did make it to Company, we wouldn't be able to go to Canada this year. I mean, it doesn't look like we would be able to go anyways, but maybe this is a sign from God that we might be able to go(:

Yesterday we went and saw the new movie "Courageous". Hands down, it was the best movie I have ever seen. If you don't walk out moved, than I really don't know what will move you. We saw it with one of our family friends, the Hess's. They have three boys, and Mary and I are good friends with the oldest, Tyler. I felt so bad because Mary and I were both sitting by him, and tears were falling down our face the whole movie, and he just looked at us, like "Woooooowww"! The poor thing is not around girls too much! (:

Now, fast forward to today, we have to go by the library, then the thrift store, and then go to a duck hunt with my Dad, and have a cookout with him there! It's going to be a pretty fun first day of October. Oh, and by the way, it actually feels like fall outside! It's about 75 degrees outside!

In Christ,

A Fast Trip!


This Wednesday, us girls are making a fast trip to Missouri to give our dog Ripley to one of our friends to hunt. Ripley is the most sweet dog EVER! He would rather die than knowingly hurt you.

My Baby!

Our dogs are in training right now up North, and I miss them so much! This is a picture of Menzie. We bred our dog Gabby, and her litter originally consisted of 9 puppies. Only 3 survived, so we kept all three!(:

We Will Never Forget

9/11 is a horrible day in our history. The terrorists thought they could bring America down, but no; America is too strong for that. I grieve deeply for all the families that lost family members and friends out of the 3,000 people that died that tragic day.

Three Sisters




"We are Three Sisters

Three Sisters are we


I love each of you


And I know you love me











We're not always together

Life sometimes keeps us apart


But, we're never separated


We're in each other's hearts












Now, I know we've had our troubles,


But we always get thru

The real message is that you love me

And I love you










We've had lots of good times


That we'll never forget


Sometimes we worry,


Sometimes we fret










But, if God ever gave me



Something special, you see



It might have been the blessing of



Three Sisters are we









The Lord above has gave me lots



Of happiness and glee



But the most special thing He did was



Make us sisters, all three"

99.9%

Have you ever wondered why all cleaners say "Removes 99.9% of all germs"? Why not 100%?

This reminded me of how no matter how hard we try, we are 99.9 % without Jesus. We would never be able to be with God, if it wasn't for Jesus dying on the cross for us. He removes 100% of our sins, every time we are truly sorry for them. Even the worst of sins, like murder, stealing, fighting- all that is washed away.

You may try different 'cleaners', but none of them get you 100% clean like Jesus does.
