Well Would you Look at That!

I'm back! Whew, my life has been busy. I'm so glad I can come back and write and have so much encouragement from all of you! Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my last post. Fall weather has now started here in my neck of the woods and I'm loving it! Fall is my favorite season!

Wake up at 6am
Go to school for 7 hours
Volleyball practice or a game
Get home around 8-10pm
Eat dinner
Do a boatload of homework
Go to bed hopefully before midnight

My life ladies and gentlemen. I'm glad you all understand that school isn't always easy and that sports and a big family always cause extra chaos. It's been a crazy transition into things but a fun one and I'm so blessed to live this life. Most days I sleep in the shower, or skip the notes in class, or just fall on the ground once I get home. Life is always full of seasons though and this season will pass sooner than I think, so why not enjoy it while I can.

Plus I'm seeing most of my friends everyday and playing a sport that I LOVE with some of my favorite girls in the entire world! I always heard that Junior year was going to be the hardest but never realized that until I got there. Not to scare anyone but for me this is definitely true. 

Blogging has always been one of my favorite things to do, and I miss it so much. Hopefully I can do it more often so all of you don't get so bored. I just thought I'd give you a little update and a little journal for myself.

Summer 2013 Said Goodbye

I finished my first week of school yesterday. My school has every other Friday off and thank goodness the first week didn't include a full 5 days. This year it's a little different though.

Usually when the first day of school comes I'm pretty excited. But not this year. I was literally dreading it...D-R-E-A-D-I-N-G it. I can't believe summer went by that fast. And I was not looking forward to going back so soon.

My best friend left the school and started a new school this year. That's been the hardest thing...she doesn't play volleyball with me this year, I don't see her in the halls, I can't sit with her at lunch, and I miss her so much. Her school isn't far away but we're definitely more busy because of our different schedules. Also, half of my grade went PSEO this year. (which means they started taking college classes at a community college nearby)

So you can see why it's been a little more lonely and quiet this year. I'm just so sad that I don't get to sleep in anymore, or have time to sit down and read a book, or see my friends as often, or just a day to chill and do nothing.

Monday started the day that my bed doesn't get made, where the bathroom is extra messy, when my clothes are covering my bedroom floor, homework is completed for hours a night, TV is a privilege, and volleyball is a top priority.

Let's rewind to summer shall we?

chilling with my siblings, holding babies, going to baseball games, captains practices for volleyball, making boardgames, hanging out with friends, home pedicures, the weather, beautiful sunsets, Arizona tea, and checking things off my summer list.
