Today is pretty much my last day of summer! YAY! School volleyball started yesterday! Fun, but painful! We have to do stations including wall sits, planks, jumping over cones, and lots of serving and passing. It is conditioning but I feel plenty conditioned! Haha it is probably good for me though. I love volleyball. I am so excited to play every day for 2 months!!! Our team of 13 is pretty small compared to the 22 player 8th grade team. It is huge compared to our 9 player NLV team! Speaking of NLV, I noticed the other day while watching the USA Olympic indoor volleyball team, that I have the same volleyball spandex as that team!!! Navy blue Mizuno’s!!! Did I run up stairs, put on my whole volleyball uniform and scream ” I’m an Olympian!!!!”? Yes, yes I did. Anyways, Open house is tomorrow!! I am super excited to decorate my locker and get my schedule! I hop that I am in alot of classes with my friends! Last year, Grace, Kennady and I all had the same one. Science, Language, FACS, Gym, Lunch, Choir, Math, Social studies, and then Communications! I am so excited to dissect a frog this year! I dissected worms, jellyfish, squid, crayfish, roundworms, and grasshoppers in College for Kids this year. It was gross, yet awesome! I don’t know if I will be grossed out by a frog or not though…

This summer has been really fun! I had summer volleyball league, hanging out with friends, camp, and alot more!! I want school to start so bad though!
Summer volleyball league was super fun. Alot of my friends were on the team. We only won a couple of games but it was all to get better for school season. I am SUPER excited for school season! I really hope we do well. I think it will be really fun playing with an audience of people that we know. We probably won’t win alot of games like No Limits, but I think we will win some. i just love volleyball so much!!!
I want school to start SOOOOO BAD!! I want to start volleyball, choir, band, art class, and NO HOME EC!!! I love choir and band so much! I play french horn still. I love it. I’m really excited for student council. I think it will be super fun. I am also super excited for spirit week. Wacky Wednesday will be amazing!!!
I am watching the Olympics right now. I love gymnastics, volleyball, and track. My favorite Olympians are Jordyn Wieber, Missy Franklin, Lolo Jones, Misty May-Treanor, and Aly Raisman. The Gymnastics amazes me. Especially because I can’t touch my toes! Hahaha.
This summer has been completely AMAZING! But I am ready for school!!!!
