1: I dedicate this book to Mountain Mama; you got me through everything.

2: Dear Diary, , Everyone always says that family is the most important thing in life. What if you family is keeping you trapped from pursuing your dreams? I just don't understand it! They want me to be independent, but they are also forcing me to be a lawyer. I will NOT follow in their footsteps. | "Its like being a goldfish in a tank or snapping turtles." -Ivy Breedlove | Entry 1

3: Dear Diary, I can't stand her! All she wants to do is save time. Doesn't she understand history takes patients? She is going to rush through the video project so she can get back to her speedy, stupid schedule! I wish she would just realize that everyone is going to be disappointed of her work. | "Saving time doesn't always matter."-Ivy | Entry 2

4: Dear Diary, I just found out that someone was decorating the tomb stones in our family cemetery. I talked to my crazy neighbor who told me that my Aunt Jo has been doing it. I don't really believe that because I mean, really she is crazy. She does live right across the street from the cemetery though. I hope I find out who it is! | "I want to know if it was you that put the holly wreaths on the tombs!"- Ivy | Entry 3

5: "Hunger, love, pain, fear are some of those inner forces which rule the individual's instinct for self preservation." - Albert Einstein | Dear Diary, I just met this lady at a mountain climbing shop called mountain mama. I really want to find my Aunt Jo and I hope that my dad says yes to me going on the trip. Mountain mama says she has never lost anyone one on her trips up. I completely trust her. It's going to be a great adventure. | Entry 4

6: “Love and kindness are the very basis of society. If we lose these feelings, society will face tremendous difficulties; the survival of humanity will be endangered.”- Dalai Lama | Dear Diary, Everyone in my has mixed emotions about the trip. They want me to find the missing piece to our family history, but they also don't want me to get hurt. I can understand that but I just really wish they would let me make my own decisions. I want to be a historian so badly, and my cousin said this would story would get me into any college I wanted. I think its a good choice to go. I just wish my dad saw this chance of a life time in my eyes. He would have said yes in an instant! | Entry 5

7: " Through humor, you soften some of the worst blows that life delivers." - Bill Cosby | Dear Diary, We started our trip our today up the mountain. I really under estimated how tough it is going to be to get up. You have to carry on your back all of your supplies.. iF all goes well I will have one of the greatest family history books for aunt Tib. It will definitely be better than Fiona's. | Entry 6

8: Dear Diary, Oh my gosh today we were climbing across a ledge and I almost fell in! But to my surprise someone grabbed my hand and I looked up and it was one of the cutest guys I have every seen. His name is Josh and Mama invited him to stay with us for a few days. I am begining to really like him. I am so happy Mountain Mama invited him! | "He is adorable!" -Ivy | Entry 7

9: Dear Diary, I finally met my Aunt Jo! She is well uhm... how do I put this. Different? She has an entire town that she built for her birds. She has a hospital, library, and even a church. I didn't know birds were religous. Anyway I am going to stay at her house for a few days just to get some more information for my family project! | Entry 8 | "Ivy meet your Aunt Jo." -M.Mama

10: Dear Diary,, Sorry I haven't wrote to you in so long. A tree kinda fell on Aunt Jo's house and crushed her leg. We almost didn't make it. Luckily Mountain Mama came to the rescue with Josh! Also Aunt Jo's pet wolf that I had doubt s aboiut at first acually saved my life! Aunt Jo and I recovered quickly so we will be able to make it to Aunt Tibs party! | Entry 9

11: Dear Diary, Aunt Tibs party was a success! Everyone liked Fiona's presentation, but secretly they all liked my book better! Why wouldn't they, I took more time on mine. Aunt Fiona is all about saving time when she should really be thinking about how people feel about her work. Aunt Tib came up to me after the party and said she liked mine the best but I am not allowed to rub it in Fiona's face. Oh well, all is good! | Entry 10
