Gymnix Homeshow

It's Sunday. Well, I didn't sleep very good last night. I went to the gymnix homeshow last night, and guess what. They had another accident. Nicole Ley went into the air to do a backtuck, and she was given too much air that she missed the mat, and had a concussion and whiplash. I thought she was paralyzed. Because she hit her head, and neck really hard. People were crying, and I think that was the first homeshow that they had to stop because of a really bad accident. I was very restless in bed last night.They lifelined her to Vanderbilt. So today has been all right. Of all things they were honoring her dad, Raphan Ley because he has volunteered for twenty years teaching gymnastics. Eric Molina made a video about him. And they have named the gymnasium after him with a special plaque. Some former gymnasts came, to see him. And his parents came, it was their first homeshow to go to. They said on the highland academy website, that she is now walking around home, and is planning to be at academy days. I hope she doesn't do anything crazy tonight if the gym team does a performance. I can't really stand to watch it anymore, because of what I saw last night. I hope you all are doing good.

I am thankful

I am thankful to say that Chris Arthur is okay. He landed on his head instead of his neck. Apparently, they were doing a jump rope routine. Three guys were doing back tuck in the air as the rope went around them. He got scared of the rope coming down, and he did his backtuck wrong and landed on his head. They said that he had a little toe movement, but it wasn't like he normally did. Today, he came to his classes with his neck brace on. He wants to perform in the homeshow Saturday night.But he probably shouldn't. Thank you for your prayers.

Gymnastics is not worth it!

Hello! I just came back from a two hour practice of the King and I play. At the end of the first hour, a girl came in the room . She said that Chris Arthur at the gymnastics practice was doing a backtuck into the air and landed on his neck. Ouch! I do not know what his condition is now. But an ambulance came and took him to the emergency room. Please pray for him. He is three weeks away from graduation, and I would hate to see something really bad happen to him.Gymnix homeshow is Saturday night and they were having a four hour practice. I think though that gymnastics is not worth it. You are taking too much of a risk of your body . The music that they play is their routines is horrible!!!!! I don't think that the Lord is pleased when they play that kind of music. I am glad that I am in choir. Because the music we do praises the Lord and we can use it the rest of our lives.Your body is not meant to do tumbling in the air, and so that is why it is so risky. Keep Chris in your prayers. I'll post more info later.

Stephen's birthday

Hello Everyone! I had a great weekend. And now here is another one. Last weekend was nice we went to Portland church it was nice to see everyone. I gave Superitendent's remarks for Mom since she was not to full strength. I talked about the health message and what Ellen White has to say about meat . It is interesting what she has to say.I will share with you later. Then, Sabbath afternoon we went back to the church . We helped Jean Sellars fold bible study cards with Steps to Christ books to hand out to the community. Sunday afternoon was Easter. Stephen's birthday was Tuesday, but we celebrated it on Sunday instead because I have a really busy school schedule. We enjoyed having him home. Mom fixed her best spaghetti, salad, bread, and yum yum cherry pie. Then we gave him presents and cards. Mom gave him some new pants, and I gave him a book on the biography of Steve Wohlberg. He said he like read biographies. Which I do to. I'm glad to have three special brothers to look up to. I can't believe he is 31. I consider that young. I am starting to feel older. I turn 17 in August. I have looked at 18 as a long ways away and now it is only a couple years away. This week was busy. I dissected a starfish in Biology and I took a lab test on it today. Dissecting is fun. I learned something new about starfish they can regenerate their rays if they are broken off. That is cool. Just think if we humans were like that. I think I have written enough. Have a blessed Sabbath!

Grandpa's 94th birthday

Yesterday, was my Grandpa's 94th birthday. We went to see him and he appreciated what we did. We gave him presents,and he got a lot of cards. He also got some baloons. Well, I am officially on spring break and I can finally rest, and relax. This afternoon I am going to the business office to finish up some things . My school is doing a musical the King and I. So I am going to memorize the wives parts. Because, I am one of them. I think it will be fun to put it all together, but at the same time I will be glad when it is done. I took a really hard algebra II test yesterday. I hope I did all right, it was really hard. Be glad that you are not taking algebra II. Welcome if this is your first time to read my blog. I saw that one person has discovered it in the blog world. God bless.
