Hey everyone!

It's been way, way, way too long since I've written something. The educational system has managed to temporarily silence me by loading me with homework, thus preventing me to write anything. But I am free for a day, and I thought that it would be fitting to write again.
On Monday, I'll be going to The Wilds in Greenville, South Carolina with several kids from my school. I'm hoping to learn a lot about leadership and the Lord while I am there.
That's about it for now! Later!

Hello people out there in Bloggerland!

I just got back from a family vacation to Minnesota. It was a blast! The weather was beautiful almost every day, we caught lots of nice fish (including a personal bests for all of us), and I got dragged behind the boat in an innertube. It was fun. I got a nice tan from all of the Minnesota sun. We were all very tired when we got back but now we're all okay.

I'll also be playing in a wedding coming up. Congratulations Femmie and Carly!

That's all for now. Until then, have fun on my mediocre blog.

Hello People (wherever you are)!

The summer has been suprisingly busy. This week I've been doing chores for Mom and Dad in order to make the house look good for Father's Day. I've been digging a trench, mowing the lawn, sweeping all the floors in the house, and cleaning my room. All have been pretty easy, but they've taken me a while. I've also been reading a series of books that Jessie Riley showed me called the The Squire's Tale series. They have been pretty good. I've also been reading a book called The Power of a Praying Teen. It's been a great devotional so far. I'd recommend it to anybody who wants good reading material. It's in a series of books written by Stormie Omartian.

I've also been working on a new tuning on my guitar. I've tuned it down to a C# instead of an E. It sounds very Celtic and I'm working on writing an instrumental using the tuning. It's coming along. My guitar teacher and I are working on songs that we hope to do at a coffee house sometime. It's been fun.

Dad and his friend leave tomorrow for a 24 hour musky fishing tournament. I hope they catch a big one (and don't get too sunburned!).

Have a nice Father's Day Weekend!

Hi everyone,

I went fishing for the first time this year on Friday. My dad and I caught 32 bass. It was a blast. I Love Fishing!

Our Eagle Fair Carnival went very well. We had a great turnout, and we made over $7,000! It all goes toward scholarships for kids to come to our school. I appreciate all of the people who helped out. You guys are awesome!

School is out!YAHOO!!! Now I have to find a job for the summer. That's proving to be more than I bargained for, but I'm trusting that God will show me what to do.

I went to a birthday party for my buddy Paul. Me and my friends all watched movies that girls don't really like, but boys do. We watched Spongebob, Major Payne, and Trapped in Paradise. It was fun. Paul also showed me his dog, Molly. She is so adorable! She's a really short golden retriever, and she does tricks.

That's about it for now. Have a pleasant summer!

Hi everyone!

Let's see, what's happened since March 18...?

My family and I went on a vacation to Philadelphia. It was a blast! It was 70 degrees the whole week. We saw the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, The Betsy Ross House, and many other neat historical places. We naturally ate some Philly cheesesteak while we were there. It was great! Way better than Indiana cheesesteak.

I also took my driving test. It was a little nerve racking, but the Lord was watching out for me (like always) and I passed. The written test wasn't hard either. I passed that too. I am an officially licensed driver. FREEDOM!!! My parents also got a new car and they're letting me drive it. I am so excited! But like Peter Parker said, "With great power comes great responsibility." Hopefully, I'll be able to keep my driving privilages for a long time.

A few days ago, I was invited along with Luke Fausett, Trenton Flora, Emily Helmer, and Ashley Hagen to the TNT graduation banquet. It was a fun night. I got the honor of praying for our meal. After the speaker was finished, we each got a certificate of graduation and a keychain with out names on it.

Today was the church garage sale. We didn't have as much stuff as last year, but we made a lot of money. I got a bright red collared shirt, a trench coat, and joke book. It was a fun time.

Hmm... I think that's all for now. I'll try and stay in touch with y'all.

A Joke? Ummm...okay, hold on a second. I once knew a guy who was so dumb that he sent a fax with a postage stamp on it! Another time he put a crockpot in the microwave!

Hello Again!

So like I said, my family and I went to an Apologetix concert. They're the finest Christian parody band around. I think that the concert was the best on I've ever been to. Their lead singer, J. Jackson, had a whole bunch of crazy shirts! During one of the songs where they were taking volunteers to sing, they called me and several other people on stage to sing along with them. We all sang "Jacob's Name is Israel." It was a blast! They played great songs, but the devotional that J. Jackson gave was awesome! Afterwards, I met Karl Messner (their lead guitar player) and Bill (their keyboard, violin, tamborine, and guitar player).
The school play is coming up so soon! Only 4 more days!
I also competed in Fine Arts in the humerous interpretation category. I got second place! Cool! Most of my friends did very well too.

Talk to ya later! My mom has to make a phone call.

Hi everyone!

It's been such a long time since I've been writing! School's been keeping me pretty busy. I got my report card yesterday and I've got A's and B's. Yes!

My birthday was last Friday. Four of my friends pitched in some money and bought me a Danelectro talk box for my guitar! It was so awesome! I was so flattered that they would all do that for me. After school on Friday, my family and I went to an Apologetix concert in Anderson. It was the best concert I've ever been to! I got to meet Karl Messner, their guitar player! He was really nice.

Well, the bell just rang. I've got to go. Talk to ya later!
