Heather's First Day of School!

Today is Heather's first day of school. First grade! She went shopping all day yesterday with our mom for new clothes and shoes. The first thing she said when she got home was, "Mommy spent almost two hundred dollars on my clothes!" She just cracked me up. She got a Beanie Baby to match her "first day" outfit, and named her "Flower". She is just the cutest First grader EVER!

Gone Fishin!!!

Yesterday after church my family picked up my niece, Isabella (4), and my nephew, Christian (2). They are my older brother, Richy's kids. I hadn't seen them in around 6 months! They have grown so much, talk alot, and love to fish! We took them fishing at "Cub Lake" after dinner, it was so much fun! The only person that caught anything was my dad, he caught the same fish twice. What a dumb fish! My youngest sister, Heather (6), had fun showing Isabella and Christian how to feed the ducks. Christian was feeding the ducks "Honey Nut Cheerios". At times he would forget that he was feeding the ducks and start feeding himself, it was so cute!

What do I do?!

Okay, I've never done this before but, I like reading everybody else's blog and thought I'd give it a try.
My name is Amanda, I'm 22 years young, and I live in California. I enjoy playing with children, reading to children, and well... CHILDREN! It is summer now and swimming is my favorite sport so, I spend alot of time at the pool. I just started fishing a couple months ago but, my fishing partner lives in Illinois and so it's hard for us to find time to get together to fish. I lived in Illinois for a little while and moved back here to California about a month ago. I miss Illinois alot!
Well, maybe the more I do this the more interesting I will get. Thanks!
