Hey guys! 2020 has been a VERY weird year and I’m scared but also looking forward to what 2021 brings in! Sooooo take a quick break to listen to this song and we shall continue with this post below!
Did you watch it? *insert intense look*
Now here’s 2020 my year in review!
January – After a great Christmas we started off the year with going to Get Air and jumping more times then I can count! I continued my job of dog walking and read more books then I care to think about the “exciting” world of salt.
February – February brought some cute puppy pictures and my birthday! I turned one year older and got to celebrate in some different ways. First I celebrated my birthday a few days early and then on my birthday we traveled a few hours down to a bigger airport and then flew out to visit my brother.
March – A exciting and weird month we had in March. We got home from our trip and I took my learners permit test (which I passed without reading the manual, yay!) I also bought a car that month! Dad had bought me a van for my dog business but the condition it was in made it kinda useless so I found a car. Then Covid in our area struck and we were forced to hibernate. Work for me continued and school still went on.
April – Dad and I tackled some exciting projects including building a locust tree fence and started on a rock wall. Easter also came and went with a zoom service and some fun family time. I also got to experience my first driving in the snow! It went pretty well though was a bit scary at first.
May – Fishing season started up and my dad and I went down to visit my grandparents fishing camp about 5 times throughout the next three months. I got to drive the 2ish hours down and back and Winnie got kinda over her fear of water. I also saw my first elk (although Winnie and I call them mooses)!
June – Our neighbor hired dad and I to build them a support wall around half of their pool. Let’s just say it was tiresome and I got concrete on my jeans! We also took a few camping trips and biked a lot! Church started up in person and I got involved in a puppet team, cleaning and making the puppets cute and acting out a 8 year old in the show! Dad and I also made a huge mailbox that was super fun and turned out great!
July – So much happened in July! My job continued throughout the hot month and I helped direct a younger kids acting camp. I also had a terrible toothache which turned out to be a wisdom teeth problem and they needed removed. Soooo a week later I was no more wise and very chipmunk looking…a week later I was out in the 80 degree heat doing photography for our churches VBS. And that next week I helped direct an older kids acting camp and taught choreography for a dance.
August – August brought a snake rescue, and an acting camp that I could be involved in too! It was so much fun to get up on stage and just act! I was also able to sew some pretty cool pillows for our couch and I got to be involved with L’s graduation! Worked continued and my mom and dad decided to sign me up for private school so I could finish my last few years strong! The last week of August brought my schools camping trip that involved rafting, devotions, and a very stressful environment which at the time bugged me but definitely helped grow me! Also that last weekend was my churches youth retreat where we played games, camped outside, and had a blast!
September – I said goodbye to my job and school started….it was HARDDDD! I struggled to fit in (and still do). Dad and I also built this really cool desk for my room! I learned how to play ultimate frisbee at school and my family started tackling another huge house project (I’ll do a blog post on that once it’s done). I learned how to change my own car tire and the most exciting par is….I GOT MY DRIVERS LICENSE!!! My dad and I also fixed a broken piping system that was pretty fun to see why it was broken and we also got hired to do fix someones porch, which we immediately started. Dad and I also made L a book shelf for her bunk bed!
October – Finished the deck job the first week in October and got to finally fulfill a dream of mine….BUY A BUS! I got an “interesting” hair cut that went very wrong but ended up turning out so cool, I got to paint a rock that looked terrible and now looks so cool, and I got my first detention at school and instead of sitting in an office doing homework I got to fix a few tables for the school with my dad!
November – Started drinking coffee, and built a marshmallow noddle tower named Roberta. Officially bought my bus and had it driven to our house. Went into quarantine for school and had to do zoom classes for the last two weeks of November. Went bear hunting with my dad and grandpa which was fun and very boring. Didn’t get anything though I did get to drive our stick shift car and get it stuck at an intersection to the point I gave up and my dad and I did the classic switch-a-roo and he drove.
December – Went back to in person classes and got to start planning twelve days of Christmas at school. My family got our Christmas tree and I found some very old plums under my car seat…we’re not sure how they got there. My school started an assignment to make our beds for 40 days, and I’m on day 28 right now and it’s actually really hard to remember! I got to make a gingerbread house for my school game and I won! My grade also dressed our bible teacher up in wrapping paper (he looked like Ironman) then he and another bible teacher pretended to have a battle. Sadly ours didn’t win but it was hilarious! We had a huge snowstorm and my school had a snowday! The next day was remote learning and then break started!!! Christmas came and went and was a blast!
And THAT was my year! Hope you were able to understand it all! Have an amazing New Years guys! See you next year!
