102: This year started with my first trip to Calico Ghost Town. I bought a new gun and had so much fun exploring everything! I had a great birthday this year! My parents brought treats to my class, I had a big party at a bounce house place with my friends and family, and Nana and Papa threw me a party. It was so fun! We also took Maddison bowling and to dinner for her birthday. I love spending time with my cousins! I got to go to the zoo for the first time. I went with Nana, Papa, Aunt Niki, Aunt Jessie, Uncle Joaq, Joseph, and Justin for Justin's 5th birthday. It was a blast!! | My Life in 2012 | The best part of 2012 was when my baby brother was born! It was hard waiting for him to get here, but it was so worth it!! He was so adorable and such a good baby. I love having a little brother!! I played Little League again this year and got to play catcher the most. I really liked my team and I had a lot of fun playing! I had Mrs. Forster as my first grade teacher and I learned a lot. I improved my reading and stayed at the top of my class in math. I received a lot of awards and also had my book published in the Young Author's competition. A copy will be kept in my school's library, which is so cool!
103: I participated in two mud runs this year and I did really good! I started second grade in Mrs. Pierce's class, but was moved up to Mr. Ebeling's third grade class. I started Tae Kwon Do mid year and really enjoy it! Colin and Bailey were both able to spend the night this year and I hope to have my cousins and friends stay over more now that I'm older! I went to my first hockey game in December and want to go to more! The holidays were great as always and I love spending time with all of my family! Bring on 2013!! | Over the summer we went and stayed at Uncle Marty's in Laguna Beach, which was a lot of fun and Cole's first time overnight somewhere. We also rented a big water slide over the summer at Great Grama & Grampa Schmidt's house and had a blast with all of the family! We plan to do it every summer now. Another highlight of 2012 was going with Aunt Joyce and Matt to the Forgues Family Reunion in Estes Park. Colorado. It was a fun road trip and even better time seeing family and spending time with my cousins. We did so many fun things and I can't wait until the next reunion in 2016!
