Hello, summer!!

Hello summer, I've missed you desperately! Well, no not really. Personally, I've missed things like lazy summer days, rainbowsbarbecues, and swimming, but I could do without the heat

Hello, people reading this. This is Kit.
Sorry for the rather eccentric opening. Eliza is over at my house, and wanted to put her two-cents into this post, so she typed that little ditty up. Go figure. If you don't remember Eliza, look here.
You might be wondering what Eliza is doing at my house. I was kind of wondering the same thing. Now don't get me wrong, I like Eliza well enough, but she's not exactly the type of person you invite over to your house. Well, not unless you want somebody singing, and dancing, and doing things like jumping on your bed and rolling down your stairs. I don't really mind activities such as those, but my Mom isn't exactly ecstatic when company behaves like that. I don't know why though.
So anyway, I'm spending my first day of summer with Eliza. We're having a pretty good time, even though she is a bit of a piece of work. I wouldn't ordinarily take the time to write up a post while somebody is at my house, but right now Eliza is taking a break from civilized living to slide down the front banisters. I included a couple of pictures for your enjoyment. I love the second one (shown below), because it looks like Eliza is hanging on for dear life.

ANYWAY, I hope you enjoyed your first day of summer!
P.S. I don't want to remove Jenna's post from the spotlight too quickly, especially for such a strange post as this, so you might go check out the post before this one, if you haven't already. :)

Big News!

Hi! Jenna here.
The other day Dakota told me about a program that a local fashion company is running. Basically, the entrants had to make a handmade outfit, and send them a picture of it. If you won, you could model some of the pieces of their latest line, if your parents agreed.
Well, the results came in yesterday, and guess who won? ...Dakota!

Not really. Actually, I won!!! I was so excited. And just for the record, I wouldn't feel too bad for Dakota. I don't think she actually got around to entering.
Back to the main point. When I heard that I had won, I ran and told my family. My mom and dad took the news nicely. They told me that they didn't see any problem with it, if they could go with me to the photo-shoot. However, my sister Rachel didn't take it as nicely.
"What?" She squawked in shock. "Jenna gets to model clothing??"
I tried to lighten the blow. "I only get to once, it's not like it's a permanent position or anything."
That didn't help much. You see, Rachel has dreamt about being a model ever since she was about two. This is obviously an exaggeration, since I wasn't even around when Rachel was two, but you get the picture.
Long story short, Rachel is still a little steamed at me for winning. It's not my fault, all I did was enter. Older sisters are so weird.
Anyways, the photo-shoot is on this coming Saturday. I'm not sure if Rachel is coming, but Dakota is definitely coming with us, so we should have a lot of fun! Wish me luck!

A verbose excuse....

...for being nonexistent lately! Howdy, strangers! This is Kit.
I know, it has been FOREVER since I last posted. I don't really have a very good excuse either, just the usual "I was too busy".
Luckily, Dakota and Jenna apparently like posting, so you haven't had to wait around for me to post. And just in case you were wondering, you would have been waiting for a post since late February.
So, after all of the previous random information, you are probably starting to wonder what I have been doing exactly. Dakota mentioned a while ago that I was helping repaint our hallway, but that wasn't all of it. This year my mom got really into "Spring Cleaning". She decided to redo most of the house, so my brother and I have been working hard on that.
Since school ended, I've been able to spend a lot more time outdoors. I've done a lot of biking, swimming, and playing. It has been a pretty good summer so far.
Well, that's about all I have to say for myself, sorry again for being absent. :P
I'm off to meet Samantha and Kirsten at the pool, so goodbye for now!
