Holy Cow!

I had no idea that I would ever have so much homework in my life! High School is harder then I thought. But even though I have tons of homework everyday I'm Loving every second of my school days. I have classes that I don't like but who doesn't? Right?
I have great teachers and lots of great kids in my classes. Plus I have amazing parents and siblings who are very willing to help me with every thing that I need help with. To add on top of the good things... I haven't beeen sick since aproximatly july 14th give or take a few days. That is one of the longest times I've gone without being sick. Isn't that GREAT! I'm very happy about that if you couldn't tell.
In my Lang. Arts class the other day we did this thing... I don't remember what they are called but... you can only write 6 words. It doesn't matter how long the words are or how many sylables there are it just matters that there is 6 words no more no less. So it was like telling a story in 6 words is how my teacher explained it. And we were telling the stories of our lives. We had to come up with 6 words that decribed us... Mine was... Life, Live it, Love it, Wonderful!
I was thinking about that... and I decited that my life is wonderful! for 8 reasons...
1) I have a family that will be my family forever and always!
2) My family loves me very much and I love them!
3) I have Spactacular friends, that would do anything and everything for me and I would do the same for them!
4) I can get an education anywhere I go in the U.S.
5) I have the gosple that makes my life a whole lot more easy!
6) I have a beautiful home where I can feel safe and like I don't have to be anyone but myself there!
7) I can be myself anywhere I go, because I feel like I don't have to be anyone else! I will give an example of that... My friends came over to my house on Friday and we dressed up in prom dresses that we have and we walked to Maceys just because we felt like it. It was way fun incase anyone was wondering!
8) I have talents that I can share with everyone! I love being able to help people and with my talents I can help others!
So life is Marvelous! And that is that!
Bow Baby!

First Day

Well it's been a couple days since I've bloged... It's because school seems like it's been taking up all my time. The first two days were very crazy. You were in one class and when you finally felt comfortable the bell rang for you to go to your next class. You were running up and down the stairs all day long and when you got home you felt so exuasted. Then you had Young Womens and had to read Mississippi Trial and only had two days to do it(I did get it finnished though). Friday was the first day that was normal and it wasn't really normal because we were on assembly schulde. It was nuts but very fun. I am very excited for high school. I hope it is as good as I think it will be.

I went to my first day of "school" today. Ok it wasn't really school it was orientation. but it was still scary. I am SOOOO glad that my older brother will be there to help me! But I am way excited to go to High School!
Well being at the school wasn't exactly my idea of a great birthday. But it wasn't bad I had fun and I met new people. I left shortly after I got home and I went to my cousins house. She had some hand-me-downs for me. I love hand-me-downs! Not only did I get some new clothes but I got to see my Auntie J.! She has recently moved to Bosie and I haven't seen her in forever! Well that's all for now.

I love being at home. Our Hilladay was great but being home is always the best.
Day 1
We traveled 6 hours to get to Jackson Hole. It felt a lot longer than that. When we got there we unpacked the car. We were in cabins instead of tents. That was nice. We made dinner and then went and played in the water. We just kind-of hung out the rest of the day.
Day 2
We woke up. We all got showers. We made then ate breakfast. Played a little bit then ate lunch after lunch we got all sunscreened up and we went White Water Rafting. Our guides name was Owen. He was very good at his job. After that we went to Bar J Wranglers.
If you don't know what that is I will explain... The short version... Dinner and a show. That was way supper fun and the food was wonderful. We got "home" about ten o'clock and went right to bed.
Day 3
We woke up bright and early, got showers and ate breakfast. Derictly after cleaning up breakfast we went on a two hour horseback ride. That was probally my favorite part of the trip. I want a horse. I would name him Boots if I had one. After horseback riding we ate lunch and then played in the river. We went to yellowstone national park and we just drove. We went and saw Old Faithful and drove back. It was really late everyone was sore and Landon felt sick. We were all bedside in just a few minutes of ariving back at the cabin.
Day 4
We travled home. We learned that we had taken the long way around and decited that we would go the short way home. We got home in 5 hours give or take a few minutes.We unloaded and un packed and then My sister and my dad started Treasure Island. I got bored of that soon so then I decited that we sould make smores in the microwave. We all did. We finnshed Treasure Island and then shortly after that I went to bed.
All in all it was a wonderful trip. But I really do love being Home.

first off I should explain what a Hilladay is. Pretty much it is a day or a weeked that we spend as a family. We have it every year in August. We all love the Hilladays. They are a fun way to get to know eachother and to just have fun. Now that I have explained...
For our Hilladay this year we are going to Jackson Hole in Woyoming. We will be taking two cars. Buzz and Roxanne(we name our cars after disney charaters) Buzz is an Infinity, and Roxanne is a Miada. My little brother and I have been argueing over who gets to ride with my older sister in Roxanne. I want to not just because it's a cute car but because I love to spend time with my sister.
My little brother on the other hand just wants to ride because it's a "hot" as he would say, car. he despises my sister and they both know it...
What am I suppose to do? He won't leave me alone about it. It is getting annoying!
Last time I told you we were going to Cali. he says that if I get it the whole way to Jackson and back he gets it from utah to cali. and back. does that sound fair to anyone? If so please let me know and please give reasons why you think it's fair.
Anyway...I hope it will end up being a fun trip and that my little brother and I get along. Knock on wood... Talk to you in a few days. I'll tell you all about my trip.

Something New

Hello, my name is Ashtyn. It is said ash-tin. It is quite simple but many people get it wrong. I am starting this blog so that I can have something to do. I have been really bored this summer, and now everything is kind-of rushing at me. We are doing our family Hilladay this week, and then in one week from today it will be my birthday, the day after my birthday will be my first day of high school... I think that that is a little to much to throw at a 14 year old.
For the past three years I have been attending a charter school called Entheos (N-thee-O-s) Academy. So I only know 3 people that I will be going to school with. Entheos was a tiny school. you could walk the entire thing in less then a minute. SMALL! West Jordan High School has two levels and seems much much much larger than Entheos. You should be able to see why I'm worried. My parents and older siblings say that I will do just fine because I have no trouble making friends... but I am scared to death! How in the world am I going to do this?!?!
Oh and did I mention that I had a summer reading project that I didn't know about until a week ago. I started reading the book that I thought I was soppose to be reading, then when I was in about 12 chapters I realized that the book I was reading was the juniors summer reading. All I have to do is read a book of my choice then write a two page paper on it... that's not hard but I wish I would have known earlier.
I know that even though this is going to be a new and different experiance, I will welcome it with open arms. This will be a marvelous year for me and I know it. This year will contain something new to learn, something new to understand, it will simply be something new.
