Happy spring!

Oh, mon Dieu! 

I can't believe it's spring! There has been SO much happening--you guys won't believe it!! (I just yelled over my shoulder at KK to turn up Watch! because her fave show is on.) Khlo's been keeping the volume down because I've been studying for HOURS. Taking a quick break to blog.

So . . . Drew and I went on a date last night! :) :) He took me to the pizza place on campus. It was perfect because the weather just started to feel like spring and I was in the mood for pizza and lemonade. We shared a mushroom and pepperoni pizza. We talked about Drew's swim team practices, my riding lessons, and how we both couldn't believe it was April. We're graduating soon! Bye, seventh grade! Hello, eighth grade in the fall!

Drew and Taylor are still swim team co-captains and there was a little bit of an incident at practice yesterday. The coach told Drew and Taylor to decide together on drills for the team. They both came up with different plans and Drew found a legitimate weak spot in Taylor's plan, which he pointed out privately. He didn't want to embarrass Taylor in front of the team or the coach. Taylor totally balked and said his plan was fine and he wanted to use his exercises and not Drew's.

Drew conceded and the team went through Taylor's drills. At the end of practice, the coach called Taylor and Drew up in front of the team and asked whose idea it was for the drills. Tay said his. The coach then pointed out, in front of EVERYONE (cringe), the exact flaw in the plan that Drew did. Tay was mortified.

He didn't talk to Drew in the locker room or anything. I'm writing this thinking, "It's not Drew's fault! Why is Tay mad at Drew?!"


These guys can be so complicated sometimes.

Moving on . . .

Riding is going well! Whisper is shedding her teddy bear coat and leaving me covered in hair every day. We're working really hard on our jumping and I'm getting more confident every day. In just a few short months, it'll be ONE year since I've had her. I can't believe it. :)

Mr. Conner mentioned to our class that we'll be riding in a spring show at one of the local schools in a couple of weeks. I'm still deciding on what classes to take. Any ideas? LOL

Have to sign off, but did want to say that I promise to update more! Leave me a comment about what you're up to!

I missed you guys!
