Here, you will delve into my world of koolness and learn that as, Albert Einstein once said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge." He was right. Never doubt ANYTHING that Albert Einstein said 'cause he's the man.

Otewa School

| | 1 comments

Our school finished on Tuesday 13th. It was my last day ever at Otewa School, because next year, I will be going to Otorohanga College. We had quite a quiet day, just finishing work, tidying up and practicing the play for the end of year prize giving. I left the school ground really emotionally. Not on the outside, on the inside. Knowing that I would never board the bus at Otewa School again, never get off there. We turned up at the Otewa hall at a . I changed into my costume and stood on the stage nervously. I was the only person to start on the stage, and I could feel every body’s eyes on me. But all went well, with us only making one mistake in a song, but fixing it quickly and easily. After the play, I went and sat down on a chair - it's a year 8 tradition, that at the prize giving, we can sit on a seat - and relaxed. I listened to my Dad give the Board of Trustees report, our new principal give her speech, and then, what I'd been waiting for, Miss Wesley - my teacher - to give a Year 8 leavers speech. She wrote it to us and while she was talking, funny pictures of us came up on the projector, where EVERYBODY could see them. Then, she called us up one by one, to give us our special year 8 pen, a present from her and to give our speeches. My speech went very well, with many people complimenting me afterwards on it. I will post it when I find the piece of paper. :) The teachers then announced the most improved reader, the highest academic achievement and all round hard work. My younger sister got highest academic achievement in her year. I was so proud. I also got highest academic achievement. Since we're year 8's, we also compete for the Math’s cup, English cup, School spirit cup, Sports cup and Most Improved Netball Player cup. I was so happy when my name was called out for the Math’s cup. My Dad handed it to me. I was so proud of myself to walk up there and get it. I was even prouder when I got the English cup. But it just made my day when I got the Most Improved Netball Player cup. After all that was said and done, the House leaders got up to give a short speech before the House Winner was announced. People laughed when I said my speech. I'll also post that when I find the paper for it!! :) Sadly, we did not win, but there was only 4 points between us. Prize giving was all over. Many people came up and congratulated me on all my cups and my two awesome speeches and wished me luck for next year at college. It was one of the proudest days in my life. I was extremely satisfied with what I got. I couldn't carry it all, I had so much!! Next year, I am looking forward to going to college, but will miss Otewa School dearly. I want to thank my three day to day teachers that I had over the years. Thank you to you all for helping to get me here. I will never forget any of you.

Waikato Athletics

| | 0 comments

On Thursday, 1st December, I will be going to Porrit Stadium in Hamilton. Five of us from Otewa School are going to Waikato Athletics and I am one of them. Even though, I'm better at the track events, I will be competing in a field one. Shot put!! And to be honest, I think that that is my worst event. But I placed in our school athletics, then the town one, so I have to go on to Waikato. I'm quite looking forward to it. I don't really expect to get a placing, but it will be a really neat experience. And a day off school!!! My best friend Anna will also be going. We plan on going up in a car together, to save fuel - but mostly 'cause we just want to go up with each other!! Wish me luck!! Thank you to everyone who reads my blog - Kayla's Korner of Kool. Actually, it's not called Kayla's Korner of Kool, but I think that looks pretty cool. Anyway, WISH ME LUCK!!

Bye bye Year 8, Hello Year 9!!

| | 0 comments


In less than three weeks, I will never be able to call myself a Year 8 again. Last week, on Tuesday, all of the Year 8's in the area - about 80 - attended an orientation day at college. After we were split into four groups, we each recieved a time table and headed off in different directions. We played a game in Social Studies, did some experiments in Science, made a necklace or two in Tech and finished off the day with a massive game of dodgeball. It's funny to think that next year, I will go to that school everyday, wear their awesome uniform, have a locker and the weirdest of all - having to go to a different classroom for every subject. The other weird thing - leaving behind all of my friends at Otewa School. There are about 50 kids at Otewa and only four of us are year 8's. I'll be leaving many great friends when I go to college. But I'll also make many new friends. It's going to be a great experience - quite a scary one - and I'm just glad that my older brother already goes to college so he can watch out for me!!

MUST READ

I have been on the lookout for good quotes to put on my blog. I really liked this one I came across. Do you think we'll still be friends when we're little old ladies? That we'll still get the giggles and luagh until our bellies ache? Do you suppose that we'll still talk for hours and tell eachother anything and everything and share gossip over coffee and tea? I do. I think we'll be friends forever. Go to read read more to get the link. Click here. If it doesn't go straight to the quote, click on best friends, then page two. Thank you for visiting.

THE MIGHTY CHAMPIONS!!

| | 1 comments


As most of the World knows by now, the New Zealand rugby team, the All Blacks have conquered the title of Rugby Champs. 80 minutes of gruelling rugby and NZ comes out on top. The final score in the New Zealand vs France score was 8-7. Piri Weepu missed all three of his kicks. But he played really well. Sadly, he had to go off and Andy Ellis took his place. Aaron Cruden did a job on his knee. They replayed it many times, but we couldn't watch it. The look of pain on his face. Stephen Donald had to come in for him. He got one penalty kick. The AB's didn't play a spectacular game. They gave the ball over to France too many times. But we got there in the end. France's defense was veeeeeeeery on to it. NZ didn't get many amazing runs like France. As the clock ticked over 80 minutes we were all gripping the edges of our seats. Finally, Andy Ellis got hold of the ball and kicked it into touch. Dad was jumping up and down, waving his arms and yelling, "blow the whistle ref!!! Blow it!!!" And he blew it. Then we all lost it. Yelling and jumping, screaming and still trying to watch the tv. The All Blacks now have the Webb Ellis Cup for four years. After a while, we calmed down and watched the All Blacks get their gold medals. I got a surprise - a very nice one - when Mils Muliana got his medal too. Then Colin Slade and Dan Carter. Poor Cruden on his crutches. Richie McCaw recieved the cup and kissed it. They all crowded in for the photo and sprayed champagne everywhere. Ma'a Nonu's wouldn't spray very well, so he just tipped it on everyone. Later, he was seen rubbing his eyes. You know, fizzy wasn't made for eyes!! Well, if you didn't watch the game, you don't need to, as I have filled you in on all the juicy bits. GO THE MIGHTY ALL BLACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our Holiday in Raglan

| | 3 comments



Every holiday, we go to Raglan. It's a little beach town about two hours from where we live. Mum's Mum, Dad and Grandma live there. My Nana works at the club. (Click 'read more' to see all the pictures.) Grandad works for the Police Force. Grandad gardens, cooks and does amazing things with wood. He built our rubbish bin. And a lot of other things. Grandma crochets. She makes awesome blankets. Every kid in the whole family probably has one. All the cousins. We call them Grandma blankets. Grandma normally makes them when we are babies. Mine, Hayden's and Emma's all have our initials stitched into them. Yesterday, we got home from six days at Raglan. We always have soooo much fun there. Nana and Grandad's house is three stories high. Grandad built it. It's really cool. We always take both the dogs and this time we had to take Emma's goat. My goat went up the road to some friends. Emma used to have a white goat like me, but sadly he passed away. Then she got another one, who is toffee coloured. He is about three weeks old and really small. We can pick him up easily. In the car, he sits on my knee. Please comment!

Our old cat

| | 1 comments

As you would have seen, I have called my blog cat 'Horse.' In Footrot Flats there is a massive cat called Horse. So when Dad got a cat he named it after biggy. For a loooong time, we kept Horse. As he aged, he started to do his business inside and not eat very much. When you rubbed your hand along his back, you could feel all of his bones. Then his kidneys started failing and we got to a point where we needed to put him out of his misery. I wrote him three letters. It was so horrible stroking his stiff body, where there was meant to be life. We had a family funeral under the camelia bushes, where we already had one cat buried. Horse was the best cat we ever had and I shed many tears over him. Particularly one day, when I told my sister to 'get her stuff off the floor before Horse weed on them.' That was so bad. Because he wasn't there to wee on them. At night, he wasn't there to wake us up becasue he wants to get in with us. He didn't meow at us to let him in the cat door. He didn't do anything. I forbid anyone to walk over where Horse is buried because that wouyld be betrayal. So as a tribute to Horse, I named my blog cat after him. Thanks

Piri Weepu

Piri Weepu, father of two beautiful girls and the star of the All Blacks, recently lost his grandfather. His family kept it from him because he was going to play a big match. That shows family support for him. Piri's grandfather watched down on him as he played a magnificent game against Australia. Piri didn't mange to convert all of his tries, but he had a lot on his mind. We love you Piri, play hard. xox

It's Movie Time!!

| | 0 comments

The other day, we were in Video Ezy, getting some movies for the holidays. Anna - my best best best friend - was in there too. Her Dad just dropped her off there and left. But he and Mum had had a little chat and Anna was coming to our house!!! Whoop de do da day!!! So after a quick stop at the supermarket - where we conned Mum into buying popcorn and lollies!! - we headed off home. As soon as we got there, Anna and I disappeared off to my room - where my t.v is - while the movie was loading, we popped the popcorn and took hostage of the lollies. (Sweet and salty poporn, the BEST!!) Again, we headed off to my room, got sorted and settled in. After we had watched about 45 minutes of Alice In Wonderland - the new version - Anna's dad turned up - EARLY!!!!!! Well, we had fun while it lasted. Thanks Anna, for being the awesome person you are. ☺

What Happened?

| | 0 comments

This is what I think has happened in this picture - or should've happened anyway. (It's what I want to happen!!)DOC has decided that we need elephants in New Zealand. Not for their ivory of course, but we have many tourists that come from overseas who would love to see an elephant. They were already thinking about it, then the RWC, made it happen. We have many unhappy tourists because we don't have any elephants. They won't be held in captivity though. The elephant will have a free rein. DOC will drop them off in a large forest, if they find their way into town and cause disruption, then DOC will rethink the whole thing.

The picture looks how I feel right now. As you know, my goat Rusty, was meant to go to the farm. It happens to be my friend's farm, Anna. So one day, we were talking on the phone and I bought up Rusty going to them. After a bit of babble, it turned out he was too young. So now, thanks to the farmer's smart brains, I get to keep my beloved baby!!! Woo hoo!!

Farewell Rusty

| | 0 comments

My beloved goat, Rusty, has to go back to the farm. He has competed in Pet Day and Group Day - and done VEEEEERY well - but he's too big now. He used to be free range. roam around, but now he is too big and has to go on a tether. It's about six metres. When we go out, we have to put him in the dog kennel, in fear that he'll break loose of the tether. Rusty lives a boring life. Tether, kennel, tether, kennel. he still sees me, but it's not the same as goats and paddocks. So some day some, my baby will be leaving us forever. The other day, I took about a million photos of us together - for memories- and yesterday, I took him into the forbidden forest. (Out of Harry Potter) Nah, we have a forest and I took him through the whole thing. We were probably in there for an hour, as Rusty had to try every single new plant!! I'll be sooooooooooo sad when he goes, but won't miss going out in the cold to feed him!! I love you  Rusty. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

My Fave Colours

| | 1 comments

Green - especially lime green. I just love the brightness. Dark, gunky green, is one of the worst colours imaginable!! I choose the rose picture because, they're just so pretty and 'rose' is part of my name. I love it.

Purple - I just like the colour. I don't really wear it, but it's just kind of . . . different. It grabs at me. I choose the lightning because as soon as it loaded, it amazed me. I was 'wowed!!' It's even the computer background now.



Orange - it was meant to be yellow, but I just had to use this picture. I choose it because I really like sunsets. I like to draw them - and I am not a very good drawer!! Sunsets, I can draw quite well. All the blended colours. Red, orange and yellow. They look so beautiful.

Mils Muliaina played his last game as an All Black against Argentina. It was his 100th test match. Mils has been such an amazing player - one of my favourites - and I'll be very sorry to see him go. We all will. Mils managed to charge through the opposition, with such force, that I would hate to get in his way. He had some awesome runs and i just don't want him to go. Sadly, a fractured shoulder is too much. Mils, I wish you the best with your future. I'm so sorry, but understand it was for the best. xox

Choose your own destiny!

| | 0 comments

I'm going to write the beggining of a story. In a comment, you can leave what would happen to you!
Something pulls me towards the raging ocean. Some invisible force. It beckons me. "Take a step, and another one, rest in peace with me." I take a step. And another. And another. I take small stiff steps until I have reached the waters edge. Suddenly, something inside me snaps. I wake up. Trembling with anticipation, I dive into the foaming sea. Salt water claws it's way into me. Spluttering, I try to pull myself to the surface of the water. "Stop struggling, it will take a long time. Stay still and I'll make it quick. I promise." Gulping air into my burning lungs, I keep fighting. "It's not worth it, stop, stop. It'll happen quicker if you cooperate. Please, just stop. For me." What do you do? Struggle and survive? What's your destiny? Leave a comment, let me know.

After School Activities

Okay, for the Blogging Challenge - http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/ - we had to write about after school activities. At the moment, I'm not doing anything. I used to learn piano and for a while I did singing. I still know how to play the piano and still sing, but I just don't enjoy taking lessons. In netball season, i had two practises a week. My Combined Schools team and Year 8 Reps. But apart from that, after school activites are just not my thing.

Rusty

| | 2 comments

My goat Rusty went to Pet Day with me on Monday 3rd October. He earned two thirds, one second and one reserve champion. On Friday we will be attending Group Day at the Island Reserve. Before Prizegiving, we raced home to get Emma's shivering goat warm - he's only two weeks old - as it was raining really hard. We all got soaked to the bone. At home, I changed into warm DRY clothes and we zoomed back to school, after charlie had stopped shivering and was settled on a heat pad. My goat - seven weeks old - was fine. he hated the rain, but we weren't scared about him getting sick or anything. Emma got the trophy for best relationship with her goat. I could see it coming. Whenever she wasn't in the ring, she was holding her goat to her chest, covering him with towels and clothes, so he stayed warm. Keep checking out my blog and I'll keep you posted on all the latest!!

I am a . . .

| | 0 comments

It's a toughy. I am a mixture of two. Creators publish web pages, write blogs, upload videos to sites like YouTube. Spectators read blogs, watch peer-generated videos and listen to podcasts. Because on Creators, I write a blog but none of the others. On Spectators, I read blogs. I definitely don't fit into any of the other categories. I would have to be a mixture of both of them. So I'm a creator and spectator. That's funny, they're both two completely different things!! So there we are, see ya. http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/09/25/challenge-3-me-on-the-internet/

My Favourite Widgets.

| | 1 comments

Hmmmm, I have two websites that I like. The first one is Glogster. http://www.glogster.com/login You can't see Glogster unless you are logged in though. It wants a lot of information when you join up. Age, birthday, gender, country. The only reason it wants to know if you are a girl or boy is so that it gives you the right coloured teddy bear for your profile pic. So I have a red bear. Boys get blue. It's easy after that. You just click on a button 'create glog' and your away. You can do awesome backgrounds, texts, graphics. And it's easy to publish and put the link on blogs. There is only one thing bad about it and I found it highly offending. Brace yourself. It said "Forget blogging, try glogging." Huh!! I still much prefer blogging. The other widget is http://www.pageplugins.com/ This lets you do all sorts of things. Glitter writing, calendars, clocks, countdowns, notes. But the notes aren't just normal notes. You can write a message and it will be covered in paint. You then put it on your blog and visitors have to scratch the screen with their mouse and the note will be uncovered!! That is neat. And there is another one like that but it is a magnifying glass one. The mouse will turn into a magnifying glass and the words get bigger and readable!! That's it for today, this has turned into a veeeeeeeery long post. http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/09/25/challenge-3-me-on-the-internet/ Thank you!!

Digital Footprints

| | 0 comments

Most people don't realise how much information they give to unknown people to join sites. I, for one have joined Moshi Monsters, Blogger, Glogster and Gmail. But Gmail is only for logging in to Blogger. I'm not allowed to look at any emails I might receive. Moshi Monsters requires quite a lot of information. So did Glogster. Come to think of it, the took information that they didn't need. I filled in more than the asterisk questions. Normally I fill in all of them, depending on what they are. I googled my name, but didn't find anything at all. There was stuff about my town but none of it was actually about myself. Yes, I am on the web, on my classes blog, for Year 8 Netball Representatives team. I was in the newspaper two weeks in a row recently, for school activities. For this challenge, I have had to sign up for a few things but with my Mum's permission. I'm really enjoying it. http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/09/25/challenge-3-me-on-the-internet/

I would looooove to visit . . .

| | 1 comments

The Netherlands!! It is mostly known as Holland. I have relatives in the Netherlands, so it would be a great opportunity to visit them. I've never ever been there, though I am planning to. In Year 13, I would like to be an exchange student. I think it would be one of the best experiences in the World. There are so many great places to visit. What I would like to do before I go there is learn their language better. I know a few words but I can barely string together a sentence. I would definitely visit Amsterdam, that would be one of the first places I would see. Museums, yes. I would go to lots of museums. I like historical museums. Thanks for reading. Come back and see my latest posts!! Check out some awesome pics at google. Search the 'Netherlands' and see some beautiful landscapes. http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/09/18/challenge-2-my-place/

Questions for other Countries

| | 0 comments

In Challenge Two, Activity Six for the Blog Challenge, we had to write a post with questions for other other countries. So here are some of mine. . . Scotland - Do you think you deserved to win the game against England? I do. You played much better. (Even though I'm a Kiwi!!) Russia - Do many people in Russia talk English? What other languages do they speak? Denmark - What are some of your newspepers called? Just out of interest. Australia - Would you cheer for NZ or Canada at a rugby game? (I would cheer for Aussie unless they were playing New Zealand!!) Columbia -  Who are some of your neighbours? Do you know roughly how long it would take to get to New Zealand? Ireland - How many Rugby World Cups have you taken part in? If you live in one of these countries, could you answer my question? Thanks!! http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/09/18/challenge-2-my-place/

Tourist Attractions

| | 1 comments

For the Blogging Challenge, Challenge Two, Activity Three, I have to write about a Tourist Attraction in five different places. So here goes.
California - You should visit the 'Disney California Adventure Park.' It is undergoing some big changes that let you enjoy all your favourite Disney characters. It also has a 'Hollywood Pictures Backlot,' 'Golden State,' 'Paradise Pier' and 'A Bug's Land.' See all these and more!!
Washington - You should visit none other than the White House. Yes, THE White House. The one and only WHITE HOUSE!! The White House has been a home for every president and their families for the past 200 years. There are 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, and 6 levels in the Residence. There are also 412 doors, 147 windows, 28 fireplaces, 8 staircases, and 3 elevators. Wow!! (I think i might just get lost!!)
New York - Well, of course you should visit the Statue of Liberty. I would love to see that in person. It would be so amazing to say that I have been in New York and seen the Statue of Liberty in person.
Connecticut - You definitely have to visit the 'Mark Twain, House and Museum.' Did you know that Mark Twain's real name was Samuel L. Clemens. Interesting. I wouldn't change my name. I'd like to stay Kayla. Anyway, you should visit this museum, I guarantee that it would be a really amazing experience.
Rhode Island - The 'Belcourt Castle' would be worthy of a visit. You can even get married there. Though I don't think I would travel all the way to Rhode Island to get married. Depends on how flash the castle is I suppose! http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/09/18/challenge-2-my-place/

How To Make an Avatar

| | 0 comments

First, I went on to Portrait Illustration Maker. Choose what hair, accessories etc you want. Click the button underneath your avatar, that says download. A little box will pop up on the screen. Do you want to run, open or save the file. Save it onto the desktop, named as 'Kayla's Avatar,' or 'Ryan's Avatar.' eg. Then go onto your dashboard and click on 'edit profile picture,' choose to browse and find your avatar. If you want it on your blog, go into design, add gadget, picture, then browse and add it the same way you added it onto the profile picture. Thank you for reading and I hope I taught you a thing or two. http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/09/11/challenge-1-all-about-you/

GO ALL BLACKS!!!

| | 1 comments

I am a true Kiwi. And so into the Rugby World Cup. Especially because All Blacks are best team in the World!! If I was a Namibian, I don't know if I would be so interested!! I'm looking forward to the game this Sunday, NZ vs Canada. I have predicted that NZ will win 66 - 22. Well, hopefully, Canada won't get any tries and we'll get in the 300s, but I don't think that will happen!! At Otewa School, we have really been getting into Rugby World Cup spirit. Before the important games, we do our picks. And one Friday, we all wore black and white and played rugby based games. Rugby relays, rugby netball and ripper rugby. We've made a huge sign that goes on our fence. There are ten corrugated iron rugby balls that we painted black and wrote ALL BLACKS on in white. They look REALLY impressive and you wouldn't believe that  a bunch of kids had made them - with help for the teachers of course!! GO ALL BLACKS AND GOOD LUCK FOR YOUR  FUTURE GAMES!!!

My Avatar

| | 1 comments

I have been taking part in the Blogger Challenge. Activity three in Challenge one was creating an avatar. Firstly Anna - my new blogging partner - and I looked at all the Avatar Makers. We both decided on Portrait Illustration Maker. Just mucking around, we looked at all the choices of hair, eyes etc. After about half an hour, we had both finished and were happy with them. My avatar has short hair like a boy - I recently got mine cut to about that length - blue eyes, like mine - only, a little darker because light blue looked a wee bit scary!! She wears a blue jersey and is standing in the snow. Even though I've never had a proper play in the snow, I would love to. She has a small nose and a pinkish mouth. I didn't give her any earrings, but in real life, I have two holes in each ear. My avatar is bubbly, buckets of fun and has a great sense of humour. She enjoys reading - like me - playing netball - like me - and horse riding - like me!! That is everything you need to know about my avatar. Oh yes, I nearly forgot; my avatar is called  Kayla The Second!! (Named after me by the way). Thanks for reading my latest post. See ya for now. http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/2011/09/11/challenge-1-all-about-you/

Rusty The Goat!!

| | 2 comments

About three weeks ago, we got two boy goat. My sister, Emma and I will be taking them to Pet Day in October. My goat is called Rusty and Emma's is P.J.. They're both white and their backs are about up to our knees. Rusty is a real hair eater!! Whenever he gets the chance, gobble, gobble. gobble!! He has also started to eat grass, camelia, flax leaves and anything else he can get his mouth on. The other day, I tried to lead him and was very successful. He followed on behind me, climbed onto the barbeque table and when I took his lead off and ran, he spriiiiinted after me. I was spurred on with his progress and hope he carries on like it. P.J. wasn't as good but Mum said they'd have on-off days. Today I plan on spending all afternoon with them. Can't wait to get home!! Please come back and check out my other posts. See ya for now.

A Bit About Myself

| | 1 comments

Hi, my name's Kayla. I attend Otewa School as a year 8. I live with my Mum, Dad, older brother Hayden and younger sister Emma. We have two black Labradors, they're both girls. The oldest is called Jess and her daughter is Tui. They both behave really well except Tui has a bad habit of jumping up on us - especially when she has muddy paws! We also have two, boy goats. They're both white and we can't tell them apart from each other. So that is why we've put different coloured collars on them!! Mine is called Rusty and Emma's is P.J. Both of them are two weeks old, but they don't have the same mother. They’re both really cute, Rusty especially!!! My hobbies are reading and playing netball. All my favourite authors are: John Grisham, Patrick Ness, Stephanie Meyer, J.K Rowling, Vince Ford, Robert Muchamore and Anne Frank. I enjoy reading sagas because I get more hooked into the series and hate it when I've finished all of the books. I play Netball for Combined and Year 8 Reps. The best positions - in my opinion - are the defensive ones. Especially WD or GD. In GK I feel that I don't get enough action. And I'm not very good at getting rebounds either. There's too much pressure. But I do love it, when just after they've thrown it, I jump up and hit it. Normally they get it back but it gives me a rush. That’s enough about me for today. Please come back and check out my other posts.

Quote of the Week

This is one from Albert Einstein, who is my hero. 'We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. ' He is right. Think about it. Go deeper that what it says. It's not always on the surface.

Comment of the Week

Hi Kayla,It's sounds like you had an amazingly fun holiday! Your Grandma and Grandpa sound great and I can't believe you have your own goat! What's his or hers name? I have a house in the country where we go and stay at offently, we call it "the block" I don't know why we call it that but we didn't know what to call it so we just came up with that. I love animals (as you would have guessed from my blog) and I have qite a few pets! 8 guineapigs, 1 bunny rabbit, 2 hermit crabs, 1 dog, and 2 budgies :) Please comment back on my blog cause I'd love for us to take turns commenting on eachothers awesome blogs!From Sammy
