A Big Blessing

I have some exciting news!  If you remember one of my goals for this year was to get a steady job.  Well at first it was really hard to find one.  I looked around and called quite a few places but nothing came out of it.  So all I could do was pray and keep looking. 

In August my neighbor told me about her job and even gave me an application.  Now that was in between camp and fair so I was really busy.  But I finially I did fill out the application and in two weeks I was called for an interview. After that it was all meeting people, paperwork, scheduleing dates, and more.  Today I'm now working at a nursing home in activities. 

I'm loving my job and meeting so many people!!  God really blessed me with this job!  Hopefully I'll have pictures and more news about my job soon.

Getting away

Sometimes you just have to get away and last week that is exactly what my family got to do.  It was relaxing but yet physically challenging too.  Why physically challenging?  Well, here's some things we did.

We got to go on fun bike rides!  We saw some beautiful views.  Here's some of the views we saw.







Then one day we decided to ride all the way to an old railway tunnel.  We rode on a rails to trail.  The way out was great!  We finally got there after 15 miles and you'll see from the pictures what we saw!  We walked through the whole thing and then back again.  I found out that I'd rather go high in the sky than underground.  But then we had to go all the way back to our campground.  At the end we drove 35 miles that day!  That wasn't so fun going back.





Not only did we go biking but we also went kayaking!  That was the first time my family ever went kayaking together so it was a lot of fun!





Now, my brothers love to hike.   So of course we went hiking.


Here's a video!!  I know this video is kind of weird but oh well.


Look what this is! Can you guess what it's from? ⬇️


Yup! It's from a bear!!! We saw this four times.  A little scary...

Then early one morning we hiked up the mountain to see this!


It was filled with names of people who've hiking up the mountain before.




After such a long time and no breakfast yet I had to get some energy...

We went all the way up there for a beautiful view and this is all we saw.


It was a very foggy morning.


At the end we had a blast!

~ Do you like getting away?  Isn't it just so nice to forget about everything and have a long, restful and fun time? Have you gotten to go on a family vacation yet? ~

Hair Crazy!

As most of you know I have blond, long hair.  For a while I was greatly considered cutting it.  I just wanted to look older, more stylish, and not have to deal with long hair.  But after some thinking about it I decided to keep my long hair. 😊  I always said to myself that I wasn't going to cut my hair because I wanted to keep it long.  Also I figured I could do a lot more in long hair than short.  If I were to cut my hair though I'd cut it mid-back length and maybe add layers.

So I did decide not to cut my hair but I still wanted it stylish!  I found how!  Dutch Braids, waterfall braids, buns, cute ponytails, french braids, and more of the newer things that are on Pinterest.  I don't have change my hair by cutting it but by what I do in it.  

I'm more of a throw it up in a bun, ponytail, or under a hat kind of a girl.  πŸ˜‰  But finally I trained myself to do French braids.  Then after that, Dutch Braids.  I was so excited!  

Here are some things I found on Pinterest to do, and somethings I did in my hair...





So those were all from Pinterest and now here are a few things I did!!






Someone did this in my hair for the big action night at the fair...

I know the pictures aren't that great! But they are okay. 

Do you have long hair?  Do you think it's a good idea for me not to cut my hair?  Have you done a Dutch braid in your hair?  Was it hard to learn?

Fair Rapup

Sadly the Fair is over. ☹ But I've got lots of memories, new friends, and even a few trophies.


I came very close this year to winning champion fitter and showman with my dairy goats. I did get first place in fitting and showmanship (I was in the senior class). 


My pig did very well. She got 2nd place in her class (which is really good). For showmanship I got 7th place and fitting 6th. It was my first year doing a pig. 


I went on rides with my friends which was a blast!!!! Although, I did go on a twisty ride and almost couldn't go on any rides the rest of the day. I even went on a really really crazy ride that flipped you in the air. That was AMAZING!!! 


The fair was so much fun! Now here's a lot of pictures. 😁


This is the crazy ride I went on!


This is my hair for the big action night.



The fireworks at the end of the Fair were amazing. 


A great view for Crash and Derby! 

What do you think? Do you like all the pictures?

Beautiful Sunflowers

"They are just over this hill." My mom anoused as we rounded a curve in the dirt road. I stretched my neck trying to be the first person to exclame in excitement how beautiful they were. "There they are!" Mom exclaimed pulling into a driveway and turning off the truck. Grabbing my phone I jumped out of the truck and headed for the field full of sunflowers. This year the farmer had planted sunflowers, to my mom's delight. After snapping a few pictures I stepped back and exsamined the beauty. "Sunflowers are so cool. It's like they are all watching us." A whole field full of sunflowers, all looking the same diection and all so beautiful!




Isn't it just so amazing?! The photes don't give it justice.

The Best Time of the Year!

Summer is great, right!? I just got back from teen camp and am getting all ready for the county fair! The best time of the year is here!



This my pig and me! 

So far I'm happy with doing a market pig this year. Every day I give her grain, water, clean out her pen, walk her, and wash her. It's hard work but worth it. 


Don't you love these shirts??!! A lady I know made them for me. I can't wait to wear them at the Fair. 


Just the other day we went to the fair grounds and cleaned out the pig pens. I'm so excited!


Getting the food ready for the Fair is a big thing to do too! My mom normally does that and let me just say she does a great job at it!


So as you can see, I'm very excited for the county Fair! More posts coming. 😁
