FC: FRESHMAN YEAR.
1: your first day of kindergarten was scary, your last day of middle school made you cry, & the end of high school will blow your mind. it's all the memories in between we'll remember & cherish forever. freshman year is about making a foundation & finding out who you really are.
2: SUMMER OF FRESHMAN YEAR; this summer was not one to soon forget. so many memories, new friends, & new experiences. this was the summer that defined who most of us were going to be in high school. sure at the end it knocked people into reality that high school starts August 11th. so we took the challenge head on & prayed no upperclassmen would be kicking our ass (;
4: sitting in the courtyard eating our slushies & cookies; spending money on only junk food (:
5: FiRST DAYS OF HiGH SCHOOL! the first days at bettendorf were a little scary, but after talking to people, walking up & down the stairs about a million times - we all kinda got a hang of things. we had pep rally's starting; football games; classes; crushes on the upperclassmen... typical in your first year in high school. | FiRST DAYS OF HiGH SCHOOL! the first days at bettendorf were a little scary, but after talking to people walking up & down the stairs about a million times - we all kinda got a hang of things. we had pep rally's starting; football games; classes; crushes on the upperclassmen... typical in your first year in high school.

6: FISH FRY 08' it's time to take a break from school & party it up; nicolette & kyllie definitely let me relax & be myself - we always party hard. even though it was super cold that didn't stop us from having a great time. (:
7: playing dress up; walking for miles; eating cupcakes; yeupp that's sounds right (:
8: KICK OFF 08' in bettendorf - football is so not just a sport, its a religion. when the season comes around everybody goes all out to come out & cheer our boys on. parents; students; EVERYBODY! we'll have our theme nights & of course craig chess has to make a speech. football is love in our little town. <3
9: the captains of the varsity team this year were undeniably amazing, they did what they could to pump everyone up and take home a win! | getting ready & makin t-shirts is all part of the funn & then who can forget hanging out on the hill?!

11: you had a chance; then we showed up (: | state qualifiers! but that's how far we go this year ): but they had a fantastic year!!
12: taking pictures till your cheeks hurt & dancing till your heels come off (:
13: HOMCOMING 08' homecoming is basically in the middle of football season - you got the spirit week, game, & of course the dance. could never forget the 1st dress, getting all dolled up, & of course dancing the night away...
14: FRESHMAN BASKETBALL 08'-09' so we lost majority of our games; so what! that wasn’t the point to us nor Coach K or Coach Hubbard. what mattered most was the fact that we went out there every time with no looking back - & laid it all on the line. granted to say that sometimes it was only a few good runs that we did or a quarter or a half. but in those shining moments we were unstoppable. untouchable. unreachable. no team could have touched us. yes we did have injuries through the whole season – which i think shows our such strong dedication. but the best part was; who ever was hurt no matter the injury always showed up to games & practices & did what they could. this year we lost a great member that will now live in Kansas City, Kansas. claire was a great point guard for our little bettendorf freshman team. it was so terrible when we all heard she had to move. no one could ever forget. but we have to keep moving forward, next season isn’t that far off…
15: team bonding; it's that getting a free cookie for saying it's your birthday & sitting at the bar taking pictures love we have.
16: even though we can be total goof balls in practice; in games we're...
17: TOTALLY SERIOUS.
18: STATE BOUND! we got the title of mac champs; state champions was next. but in the hard run they got 4th place over all. not too shabby (:
19: hanging out at the game! (: | that's seth & george with their first DUNKS of the season (: | BOY'S BASKETBALL 08'-09' these guys are absolutely amazing. they're all so talented &+ can take home a win almost everytime. this year was a great year for them! we went to state - & got 4th place; which is a lot to stand for. i love you guys!<3
20: freshman year. oh wow; this year went by so fast. so many new experiences came out of it. there were new classes. harder tasks. losing & gaining friendships & relationships. high school has changed a lot of people. but not me. i will always be that quirky, sarcastic, adorable girl (:
21: best friends.
