wow how time has flown..

I cannot believe how fast this summer has gone. Maybe it is because I haven't been counting down tthe days till school starts because school isn't really starting for me.. ha. But it is so crazy to think that I'm not going back to high school ever again. I think I am really going to miss it. But life must go on. I am really excited to be taking some institute classes this fall! I hope that it will help my knowledge of the gospel grow and also help me find people to date. How sad, but how true. Ali is going to be in the 9th grade. Which means next year she will be in high school. Which is crazy. She still hasn't decided whether she wants to go to MMHS or to SHS. But dad wants her to go to springvill on account that it is a 3 minutes from our house rather than 3 miles. But our parents are letting her choose. And she thinks she is leaning more toward springville which is nice. I would much rather be a devil than an eagle. But that's just me. :] Jake, E, and Dill are all going to be in the same school this year! Even though dylan is persistant that he is not going to kindergarten and that is final. But he can't say no to any Lightning McQueen toys. Which are heavily being used to bribe him. Mom is still working full time. She is now a part of the lactation program for IHC. Which has been a nice change for her. But all is well at our home. Except that we came home yesterday to an 80 degree fridgerator. Which didn't make my mother very happy.

Wishing you all the best,

Yes yes as you all know I, Ashley, am now a high school graduate. It is still mind blowing to think that I am out of high school forever! It is even more mind blowing as I am going over to UVU to set up classes. Oh well. Life goes on. Which is a really scary thought.

It started out at 4 pm that thursday day. I was trying to find a ride over to UVU because my dad's car was in the shop and my mom just couldn't take me i guess. ha. so i called up my good friend taylor davis and we started to head over. right as we passed julie and will's house taylors mother, sylvia, yells, "WE FORGOT THE LEI" i really don't know how to spell that. how embarassing. but needless to say i had also forgot my "flower necklace" which my grandma strong so lovingly bought me, so we ran back home to get those. We, the seniors, were supposed to be there at 5, unfortunatly we got there at 5:30. Rushing into the school, we got settled into our places. mine was inbetween kroneburger and larsen. it was hilarious because we all looked like we were at hogwarts. us in our "robes" and as our teachers walked by they also looked as though they had escaped from hogwarts as well. the music started playing and we all walked in. the correct way. because the day before was graduation practice and my row, row 4, went through row 5's row. which made mrs. leek verrry unhappy. haha another funny story. at graduation practice we practiced where we would return to after we had recieved our deploma covers. so im just walking back to my place and some of the seats just flip up automatically and some stay down. well mine filpped up, right as i was sitting down. so i let out a little yelp and everyones eyes are on me as i am now grabing onto the kid's arm who sat in front of me trying not to fall completely on my butt. but, of course i fell. but anyways back to graduation, they told us that a picture would be taken of us so that when they said your name people would know who you were. this was the part i was most scared of. they said, "wait one onethousand, two onethousand, three onethousand, then walk." how was i supposed to know if the picture had been taken or if my eyes were closed or not? but it was all good. then we went and sat and watched our peers get there pictures taken and laughing at the funny ones and cheering for our friends. then when the time came to switch the tassels, us as students had a plan. the administration told us that if we threw our caps that we would be immideatly esquorted from the building. buuuuut, we had just graduated from springville high school and that ment we were no longer under their control so right as they told us to flip the tassels we all threw our caps into the air and let out screams. it really was so fun. and i am sorry of all the uncapitalized "i"'s in this paragraph. :]

julie has pictures from it. so julie i am asking if you will please post them or send them to me so that i may. :]]] thank ya thank ya.


Ashley, your graduated friend.

Can you actually believe that I am graduating from High School and moving on to bigger and better things? Because I can't. I'm still like I should be in 9th grade because it feels like yesterday I was walking out to the armory at the junior high to go to Mr. Robins geography class. But, to all of you who have not yet received an announcement, that's because they technically are not made yet. But mind you tomorrow they will be and then in the mail. I really can't believe it. But, I'm excited. :].

senior ball

These are for Lezlee because she wanted to see them.

:)))) It was a really fun night and I really enjoyed myself. I couldn't raise my arms higher than my shoulders but all was well, no boys asked me to dance anyways.
Life is great. Everyone is still alive. If you haven't checked out yet, you definatly should.

This is my friend Anita. She borrowed her dress from her cousin. Mine is borrowed from my wonderful friend Cameron. :)))))

time flys when your having fun...

Or whether you are not. I CANNOT believe it is already February 11th. 3rd term is half way over and that means I only have a term and a half till I graduate. Can I tell you how freaking scared I am!! I can't handle the pressure of choosing what I want to do with my life. I am only freaking 17 years old! 17 year olds shouldn't be making life changing choices. Our brains are not physically able to bear the stress. Well mine isn't at least. But it has been a pretty good senior year. Besides the fact that I haven't been to one formal boys ask dance. So lame. I am like, "Why do the juniors get asked to the dance when I am a freaking senior! I have priority!" Right?

Well the family is doing fine. Since that is really what this blog is supposed to be about. Haha. Dad is working alot at SIREN. Im not exactly sure what it is. but it has to do with going to arizona with Scott Mitchel. Which is semi awkward considering the fact that every boy I have ever liked was on his team. ha. Mom is working a ton too. She usually comes home and crashes in her room. We can usually hear her laughing at the tv. Which is a good sign. I am currently in the process of teaching along with 8 other girls 30 senior boys 30 seconds of Dance, Kickline, Military, and Hip-Hop. Which will be performed on February 13 at half time. I would encourage all to come. :]] but 30 senior boys are alot to handle. They have the attention span of about 3 seconds. But its all good. I already spilled alot about my drama of graduation. So moving on, Allison is never home. I never really see her. But my clothes are still disapearing so I am guessing she is still living. ha. Jacob is a sheep and I am a goat, according to the mongolian grill's chinese thing. Which says that we basically should stay away from each other. We butt heads so much so it would just do us both good to not speak to one another. Easton is Easton. Just the 5 year old oh wait, he's 9. hmm.. Dylan has become alot nicer these past months. If I ask for a hug he will usually give one to me. He is just the cutest little kid. He got his valentines today and was so excited he ate all of the candy that was supposed to go on them. haha okay not all the candy.

Wow, just remembered something really important. I got my patriarchal blessing from my grandpa on sunday! It was so amazing! I still can't believe some of the things that were said in it. ahhh it just blows my mind that we can have this wonderful blessing in our lifes. ahhhhhh. I want to talk about it so bad but then I remember, ashley this is something you aren't really supposed to talk about. But it is just so awesome that I want to tell everyone!! haha. It was really really great. And Im so happy that my grandpa was the one to give it to me. I was his very first blessing! :]] I feel so honored. :]]]

Well I hope that updates you on some of the stuff that has been going on in our lifes.

Hopefully next time I will update you sooner rather than later. :]]]
