 A bundle of cuteness!! We got some more cute foster kittens. They are so sweet! They had a busy day so they decided to curl with each other and sleep.

I have been so busy with school that I haven't been able to post anything for a long time. Today was the first comp for bouldering season. I came in third! I am very happy with that because I moved into a new age group and I was very worried about my new competition.

 Training with Sasha Digiulian and Megan Martin!! They are both really nice. They inspired me and gave me a lot of helpful tips! It was an awesome day meeting these professional climbers!

Saturday, September 21, 2013

I am in Boston for a competition today. It was great. I came in second in the 12 and under category.

I got to meet Megan Martin who is a fantastic professional climber. She is so nice. I get to spend some time with her tomorrow and I can't wait.

 Back home from Rumney! I made this delicious appe crisp since it was my day off of climbing.

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

 Second day in Rumney was much better than the first day. Today I onsited a 5.11, redpointed (2nd try)  a 5.11 on TR (top rope) and redpointed my first 5.12 outside on TR!!! I could have lead it but my hands were ripped up and I was super tired. 

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

 Back at Rumney! I was really tired today since I climbed hard yesterday. I am hoping tomorrow will be better.

It was a beautiful day for apple picking with my cousins. The apples weren't very good though. They had all been damaged by hail.

 This is the hydraulic wall ( I think that is what they call it) at the new gym. They can change the angle to how they want it.

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

 Training at my new gym. It is awesome! The lead wall is very overhung which makes it a very good place to get stronger mentally and physically. The top rope wall has very good setting on it. Also the bouldering has some overhung walls and some slab walls (straight walls). The bouldering also has some really cool setting. Overall the gym is phenomenal!

I watched this movie tonight. I thought it was very sad. He never got out of jail. He was a good man and had a lot to offer the world.

Delightful homemade jam and zuchini muffins. They are both very healthy. I made the jam by combining a cup of raspberries, a banana and two tablespoons of chia seeds in the blender. Then I left it in the refrigerator for a few hours. The chia seeds make it jell up into a jam consistency. It is very sweet and fresh tasting. The zuchini muffin recipe is from of course.

Balance training!
 Me with my brother Justin in Maine! Maine is so beautiful especially when it is nice out. You get a really nice view of the water. It was so nice!

I made this wonderful cookie pie today before climbing. It was so gooey and yummy! The recipe is from Chocolate Covered Katie. I reduced the amount of sugar by half and added hemp seeds. Healthy and delicious!

This is me and my cousin Taylor sitting in front of an herb garden in the Cloisters. It is a very beautiful garden and a beautiful museum. In the middle of the garden there is a really nice fountain.
I went to the Cloisters with my cousins. It was a lot of fun! On top is a picture of me standing in front of the Hudson river.

I just read this wonderful sequel to Journey to America. It was great!! I read it in a couple of hours. I couldn't put it down. I can't wait to read the third book!

Thursday, August 8, 2013

 After climbing today I finished Watership Down! It was excellent! It was about a group of bunnies that ran away from their home to find a new one but they had a few adventures on the way. It was sad and funny!

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

 I saw this AWESOME movie with my brother today! It was so good! I didn't think it would be as good as the book but I think it was actually better.

 This was my first day back to climbing after I pulled the muscle in my shoulder. I got this climb on my fourth try. 

Sunday, August 4, 2013

 Dinner and playing at our local vineyard. We played some kickball which was awesome! And had some food! Wonderful night!!!

Saturday, August 3, 2013

 I pulled a muscle in my shoulder so I spent the day reading Journey to America. The book is about three young girls whose father leaves Germany to  go to America in order to escape the Nazis.  He sends his wife and his three children to Switzerland until he can make enough money to bring them to America. I loved this book and I am really glad that it is the first of a three part series.

Today since it was my rest day and rainy outside, I made these yummy Mounds Bars from Chocolate Covered Katie. They are delightful!

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

 Today after climbing, I went to the beach for dinner with my friends and the carnival after with my brother. A lot of stuff! At the carnival my brother and I won a lot of stuffed animals! It was the perfect way to spend a summer day.
