I'm a High Schooler

Hey, everybody!
Yep, I'm a high schooler and there's NO TURNING BACK. Never again will I be in elementary school!!!
Today was my first day of school!! (Not ever, of course...:) It was also my first day of high school!! It's really cool to be the one of the big kids. I felt like a big kid last year, but now I feel like I really am. I have a locker, decked out with pictures of my family and New Song. I get to look at Punkin' every time I open it!!!
Lunch was also a big thing. Last year, we weren't even supposed to get out of our seat to throw our garbage away without asking, and now we can go outside, and even walk down the street! Just walking around is such a novelty to me!! :)
Yet another novelty is the way we are to write. In elementary school and jr. high, we always had to use cursive, now, not only do we not have to use cursive, but our humanities teacher actually prefers that we don't!! (By the way, for those of you who know her, Becs, friend of Dorothy, is my History, English and Choir teacher, and Robyn Pickens is Gym and eventually, Lord-willing, volleyball coach to a real volleyball team!! Not just a club!!
Today was a great start, and I have already gotten to tell a little bit about my summer of freedom!!
Tomorrow is our first chapel of the year, and I am on the worship team singing!
God bless you all and I love you so very very very very much!! I miss you!

Hooray! My littlest sister is a high-schooler...how can it be? I just brought a dress to Ariel that you wore when you were 1 1/2 years old. It's not possible that you're in high-school (to be read with a wail that sort of trails off). You're going to have so much fun! Wish I'd been there for the big day :) So much love, Amy.
