Spring Break (For Some)
Hi, this is Kaya.
Because we go to different schools, we don't all have spring break at the same time. This week is spring break for Kirsten, Bree, Charissa, and me. We all had Monday off because of the holiday, but everyone else had to go off to school like normal today. Poor them! They'll be the ones gloating when they get time off later and we don't, though.
So, what are we doing with our free time? Well, Kirsten and Bree are kind of being stereotypical teenagers, sleeping late and not doing very much. Bree and I have been watching a bunch of old Star Trek, Stargate, and Doctor Who episodes, though. It's great to have a sister who likes sci fi like I do!
Besides that I've been working hard, but not on school stuff. My dance recital is coming up soon, and now I'm in five dances! It's going to be crazy! Three of them are ballet and two are modern. I love dancing. It's a lot of effort to get ready, but it'll be worth it.
Charissa started volunteering with an animal rescue group a couple of times a week. This week they're sending her and some other volunteers to a workshop about how to train dogs. (And they're paying.) It's so the volunteers can help when the rescue gets dogs that have very bad manners or poor training. The volunteers will teach them to be good dogs before they go to their new families - and Charissa gets to help.
By the way, speaking of dogs... we're getting one in just a couple of days! We're so excited! :-)
P.S. Bree wanted to give you guys some news that she forgot to tell you. She did make the running team, but she decided not to do it because she has Literary Society and Drama Club, plus normal homework. (I think she was also kind of freaked out by what happened at the tryout.) At least she can know she was a success, though!
