First Long Course Meet of The Season!

This past weekend my family and I traveled to Lewiston for my first long course swim meet of the season. It was a really good meet for me, I got to set some good times to work from on my next swim meet. The family had a really fun time; we camped outside in a tent for two nights since a campground was right across from the pool. I had alot of fun at the swim meet and placed well in my age group.

Life on The Cummings Farm

In the past two months, new life and many exciting things have happened on our farm. We not only have started remodeling some of our house, but we also have started to build our greenhouse/garden.

A few weeks/couple weeks ago our two sheep, (Caroline and Mary) both had twins. Mary had a boy and a girl and they are both healthy and bouncing around the yard. Caroline had two girls, but one passed away a week or so ago. Caroline’s other baby is also healthy and running around.

Many of our chicks are hatching from the incubator and we also have 9 chicks out in the bard. Tiger one of our cats, had 5 kittens a couple months ago. Lei lei kept one of the girls and named her June. We gave away the two other girls to one of my friends, but then kept the two boys and named them Squeakers and Stormtrooper.  Zoe our other grown girl cat just had two babies a few days ago.

Peter and Wendy!

So, this past weekend I was in my very first musical/play, Peter and Wendy! (Peter Pan.) I auditioned last Monday, and got one of the leading roles as Wendy! I was very excited, and lol very very nervous. I had a total of 66  lines, and I had a singing solo. We had practice each day that night until Friday evening, where we had a a dress rehearsal and then put on a show! Then, the next day, Saturday afternoon, we put on our last show. After doing this performance I realized how much I enjoy drama and theater. This summer, (I am still praying about it) I may join the high school drama club at Bonners Ferry High School. :))))IMG_0355[1]IMG_0356[1]

IES Championships! (A Champs)

Last weekend was the last meet of the swim season (short course) for me. We drove to Moscow to the University of Idaho. It was a super fun filled blessed swim meet! I added and dropped time in a variety of events, and I placed 6th out of 39 girls in one of my individual events. I also placed 11th in two other events. I am taking a break from swim team for a month or so, then hitting it back up again for the beginning of long course season, which starts in about 2 months or so. 🙂

That day we also rode some fun rides like Tower of Terror, Aerosmith, (which was my overall favorite) and we also saw some more Disney Characters. This day we also watched a Frozen musical. Afterwards, we had a BBQ at our rental house, and Aunt Keri, Edward, Tory, and Brianna came over and swam and hung out.

Washington Open :)))

This past weekend was my third swim meet with SWAC.. It was a great meet! I dropped time in all of my events except for the 100 Back, but I only added 0.06…so basically I got the same time 🙂 I got a DQ in my 200 IM because of a new rule they created this past year… Other than that, It was definitely a good swim meet for me! :)))

 

This first picture is me pointing to the DQ ice cream sign, right after I got a DQ in my 200 IM…hahaha being a good sport about a disqualification in my event!! :))))img_77331
