VISA American Cup
On Saturday, the 2nd we went to see the VISA
Amerian Cup gymnastics competition at the Orlando
Arena. The VISA Cup is former olymic gymnist
competition. Broadway, my gym, was selling tickets for
the competition so I got to sit with all my friends
from Broadway who went. Mommy liked the ying-yang
girl. Blaine Wilson sat with us for a while and I got his
Patrol Fund Raiser
On Sunday, the 3rd, I worked a
fund raiser for the safety patrols. We were raising money to
go on an overnight field trip to Tallahassee. One of the
safety patrols dad runs a small carnival business with bounce
rooms, food, a train, and games. He donated half of the
profit to the safety patrols that helped that
day. Mom and dad worked the cotton candy machine and
I helped with it and with some of the games.
Odyssey of the Mind
On Saturday the 9th, the Odyssey of the Mind
competition was held at UCF. For the last couple of months I
had been practicing with some other gifted girls on my team.
Odyssey of the Mind is where teams compete on a long term problem
and a spontanious problem. The long term problem for us
was a play we had to write and perform that had to do with an
ostrich factor. We had to write a play about a character that
was like an ostrich - they would stick their hand in the sand to
avoid a situation they didn't like. Our solution was a play about fuits
and there was a new fruit that we didn't let join our
group. She would put a grocery bag on her head to
hide. She played a trick on us and then we let her join
our group. We had to make our own coustumes too. We came in 4th place. In the picture is Allison Driskrill, Jessica Hare, Chelsea Hickey, me, and Allision Bates.
During Spring Break (the 16th - 23rd) we
went on a cruise to the eastern Caribian. We went to St.
Martin, St. Thomas, and the Princess Cay. We were on
the Golden Princess.

Above is me and mom with deserts. On

and Caitlin. Ashley was from New York and was in the cabin
right across the hall from us. Caitlin was from Canada.
Above is the submarine we went on in St.
Thomas. On the right is the view from the St. Martin island

to go on another cruise!
