So, I tested today in Taekwondo. I was really nervous. It was in front of about 70 people. But.... I got promoted!!!!! I am now an orange belt =) !!!!!!!! My instructor was telling my that when I sit down (we were sitting on the floor) that its disrespectful to show the bottoms of my feet to the judges. But, when you sit criss cross apple sauce for a LONG time your legs get numb. My instructor (Mrs. Baker) was telling me a story about a girl that was sitting criss cross apple sauce and became numb. When her name was called up she stood up and sprained her ankle, but didn't notice it until half way through her form....Ouch! Also this one guy did the same thing, but he broke his leg. I can't wait till I'm a black belt!!!

Yo, What's up guys?!!!! I can't wait till Christmas! So yesterday (Tuesday) I had a whole bunch of tests =( It was OK I guess.... I really dislike tests, quizzes and pop quizzes. I have some very, very, very, very sad news......the Eckstines are moving ='( . Who are the Eckstines you may ask? They are an AWESOME family from my school ACE. They were one of my first friends. Any now they are moving......This Saturday I am having a Belt test!!!! It is at 10am in Drain, Oregon. I'm very nervice and I hope it will be alright. I'll blog after I test, and wish me luck! I hope some of my taekwondo buddies will be there, I am the only person in ACE that is testing =( SCARY!!!!

I have Strep Throat =( . Saturday I got home from my friend Shay's house at 11:00. I was dizzy my throat was a little soar. I had a head ache and and I was soar all over. We were guessing that I sadly had the swine flu. I missed church Sunday, which was the worst Sunday to miss church! One of my best friends had just turned 12 and was going into Beehives! (We have a surprise for the new coming Beehives. We put ribbons into their hair, each ribbon different colors and each symbolizing the Young Woman's values.) Sunday night I could NOT sleep because my throat was so soar! Monday my mom insisted on taking me to Urgent Care (I didn't want to). We sat in the exam room forever! Then finally the doctor came in and asked us some questions took a look at my throat and went away. Another doctor came in and took a quick swab step throat test. It came back as posistive. Thankfully, I got some "drugs".

Well, I don't have really have any updates, but I thought I should blog. I went to Taekwondo Thursday. We did 80 jumping-jacks! It was a little painful. In December, I think, I am going to be testing for my orange belt. But I have to buy a uniform and the testing before I can test. So we'll see how that goes.
I have been missing swimming =( . I think a I'm fish or something! If I stay out of the water too long I die! I can't wait till next year's synchronized swimming!! Since I got promoted to a champion last year, I'm trying to pick out music for my solo. Any suggestions?

I had some disappointment Thursday. I went to my first Taekwondo session Thursday in Cottage grove. I sat down (along with the other students) and the instructor told us to take off our necklaces, bracelets, earrings, glasses, etc... Well, I just got my ears pierced about 2 months ago so I can't take them out yet (actually 9 more days!). So I raised my hand and asked what to do if I couldn't take my earrings out. She said I couldn't to Taekwondo =( . So I had to sit the for an hour and just watch all the fun they did. I was very disappointed. But I got to go to my friend Leah's house Thursday night so I was happy for that. After spending the night at Leah's house I got home and my other friend Shay called and I went over to her house. I went to the Oregon coast with Shay and her and it was miserable!!! It was so windy and cold and I went into the ocean until I couldn't stand it, ha ha. Then we went to her house and watched a movie an went to bed. The next day we mostly hung out till 4 o'clock then we went to a Young Woman's Activity at Green Hill. It was fun. Then we were heading to Splash (on Saturday's Splash is open from 1pm-9pm) and found out it was closed for the week. That was sad also.

Well I went to school , ACE, today. It gets overwhelming alot. I don't really want to be in ACE, but my mom wants me to be. I am trying really hard to like it (its not working so well) But my favorite subject is Latin. My Latin teachers are so nice and helpful. I am really looking forward to Taekwondo on Thursday. I am excited because I might take guitar lessons! Wouldn't that be so awesome?! But I'm not sure if I am or not, I hope so. I can't really think of anything to write about today though. So I'll Blog later!

Today is General Conference. I'm doing bingo and earning treats like sundrops and yogurt covered pretzels, and chocolate and peanut covered malt balls :-D . My favorite talk so far is President Monson's about service. It was very inspiring to hear the stories of service that the other kids had told in letters to Pres. Monson. And I just love pres. monson so it makes it all the better right? Well, I got to stop posting now and go eat some hogie rolls. I'll post later.
