So, I checked my e-mail, for once, and...

I saw this e-mail about financial aid, so I clicked on the link thinking, OK what is this about. Up popped my BYU-I financial page and I skimmed through thinking yada, yada, yada because most of it was stuff I already knew. That was when I saw it. GRANTS AND SCHOLARSHIPS... Award of Excellence Full Scholarship. So I am very excited about that, as are Mom and Dad. I am looking forward to going off to college in January. Right now I've been working on finding a job so that I can help pay for college (the scholarship is just for tuition freshman year). Hope everyone has an amazing week.

Happy Birthday! Now lets go east

I had a great birthday this year, like every year. Jocelyn came down to celebrate . It seemed too crazy to make a whole birthday meal the night before we left town and have plenty of left overs that we would never actually eat, so we went to Black Angus for dinner as a family.

The morning after my birthday we flew to Pennsylvania and spent the whole day pretty much in the airport before we went to bed. We spent the day in Philadelphia and saw the liberty bell, Franklin Court, met Grandma and Aunt Carmela at the B. Franklin Post Office, went to Independence Hall, had a Philly Cheese Steak for lunch, went to the Constitution Center, said good bye to Aunt Carmela, drove to Alantic City (where all your dreams come true), watched part of Conference, unpacked, had dinner, and went to bed. That was a long day, but I think it was worth it, I had a lot of fun.
We spent a week in Alantic City and in the surrounding areas. I was glad to be able to spend time with my sisters (since they were all there and we all lead busy lives) and with Aunt Carmela.
