My friend Elinor, from writingmagic26.blogspot.com, has asked me to do her End of Summer! tag. Its basically a mish mosh list of stuff I did this summer!
So with out further ado, I shall get started! Enjoy!
I. . .
Took a week long vacation to Texas (Austin and the DFW area), during which my family spontaneously decided to move to Frisco, Tx.

|Dad armed with stuffed animals, ready for the road!!|
Went to a film camp at SLU, where I created a Fashion documentary with my group! We got to tour around downtown St. Louis to get footage, and I learned all about video editing!

Made my own back pack with floral fabric, large jeans, and a sewing machine!
|Before. . .|
|After. . .|
Went BACK to Texas to look at houses! (to see Vlogs, visit my YouTube channel)
Went to a summer camp at the YMCA called Summer Stock, where we performed Aladdin Jr.! I was a CIT (Counselor in Training), therefore I did backstage crew.
|A camper made these bracelets for me. How sweet! <3|
|The backdrop. One of the counselors and I spent hours drawing and fixing the paint.|
It turned out amazing!!
|On the last day of camp, the children were allowed to do the CITs and|
counselors' hair and make up. Aren't I beautiful?
Went on a trip to Trout Lodge with my good friend Elinor, where we had lots of fun swimming and boating!
|Elinor, Paddling away!|

Dad looks so comfortable!! >u<

Barely passed my Driver's Test, and got my License.
Drove by myself with my siblings in the car, and no one died!! :D
Cleaned my room just for my friend (thanks Elinor!! :P)
Carried half a house's worth of stuff into a teeny tiny UHaul truck. (Backbreaking work I tell you!!)
Drove to Texas in two days.
Unloaded the truck and moved all the stuff up three floors of stairs.
Organized-ish our appartment.
Enrolled in school in Frisco.
|Us at the new school, after driving four hours from Oklahoma!|
Went shopping alot for school supplies, house essentials, and food.
Got allergic to Peanut Mochi (this morning. . .)
|Flat lookin' Mochi.|
Well, that about sums up my summer! I want to say nothing great or exciting happened but that's a big ol' lie. PLENTY happened. Its just that it didn't go the way I planned, but hey, when has life ever gone as planned?
School starts tomorrow and I'm a bit nervous, but also a bit excited. Wish me luck! :D
I hope you found this somewhat interesting :) I'm proud of the fact that I included lots of pictures. Hope you all had good summers!
