Hello al!! This week has been very hectic, My aunt came from Sacramento is in-town visiting, and last night, I had my first performance. It was at around six and I preformed both of my songs. (Singing in the Rain and Leaving Paris) I was more nervous then I had ever been in my life. I was nervous because I didn't want to fall or forget something. Thankfully my coach was there to help me through it, so that helped a lot, but I was still nervous. She helped me by stretching my spirals, and helping me to take deep breaths. My family came to watch along with my 2 aunts and uncle. I was the 5th and 9th skater to skate. Leaving Paris was first, then Singing In The Rain. Once I got out onto the ice and began to feel SO much better. I didn't forget or fall in either of my songs, but I did mess up on my loop on the first one. I don't even remember skating, I only remember a few parts, It is so weird. But I am extremely proud of my self!!

Today I went to the beach. It was beautiful there. Even the water was not as cold as usual, it was very beautiful and blue. I boogie boarded and body surfed with my brothers. One of them was too cold to play long, so he just played in the sand dunes. But the other one played in the waves with me most of the time. Also, as I was playing in the surf, a seal swam by with a few of his friends, and I was able to be around 2 yards from it more or less!! Dolphins also swam by as well, but they were too far out to touch them. For snack at the beach, I had a tuna sandwich,a favorite of mine. I found my first silver dollar which was way cool! There were lots of really cool shells today.

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I have been sick with the flu but not anymore. So now my 'Leaving Paris' routine is finally looking great. My spirals and my Axels are doing wonderful. And I am now able to land my Axel on command(almost). On Saturday, my dad came to my lesson to watch me skate, and he was especially proud when I landed a PERFECT Axel. I spent the 4th July at my neighbors house swimming in their pool.(It was in the high 80s) So it was a little warm for us, we had a cold and rainy winter and spring. Tomorrow I we are planning to go to the beach. I am also in a play in my friends backyard about a Pharaoh in Egypt. As you can see my summer is fun packed and I hope yours is too!
