Hi, I don't really know how to start a blog so I'm just gonna wing it. Today I'm going to talk to you about my baseball team (as seen above). I play for the LaSalle Athletics 11u travel team. Softball is a passion for me. My team is like my second family, we disagree together, laugh together and overall have fun together. We all have played t-ball together and then most of us moved on to other teams. But now we're back and better then ever. So if your another softball team, you better watch out cause we're gonna kick some baseball butt.
I am now going to list my team mates:
(top to bottom,left to right) ~ Isabella Signoreli, Olivia Scott, Rachel Gelissen, Madison Reaume, Alanna Brill, Semonde Snauweart, Greer Simons, Samantha Regnier, Lilly Jacobs, Allison Lesonsky, Kaitlin Carson and Claire Fields

Hi everyone! Today I just wanted to fill you guys in with my Lenten promise. What is a Lenten promise you ask, well a Lenten promise is part of the Cathlioc religion. Every year we give up something that we desire or love. For example maybe I would give up my i pod. This year I am giving up Nutella and snack time for school it's torture (not really but I feel like being dramatic). But I will see them again after 40 days and nights. WISH ME LUCK GUYS BYE:)

March Break. Something we all look forward to. Well let me just blabber on about my amazing March break well someone reads this and is like "I didn't go anywhere for March break:(" Well for my March break I went to Florida:) It might not have been as hot as I wanted to be but it was nice. I spent most of my time at the beach or sun tanning. We walked up the beach to a beach side restraunt Caddys, which was busy, as usual. I liked playing football along the beach and jumping in the waves. But boy do I love being back and with my friends.

Hey! I just wanted to update everyone on what's going on. This week I had baseball like usual and practiced with the two other catchers and the three pitchers on my team. That night I realized I had a bone in my shoulder popping out. I showed my mom and she set up an appointment at the docters. The next day my shoulder was in pain so my dad put some cream on it for relief. It was heating cream to loosen my muscles from throwing the previous night. While I was doing homework my arm started to burn but I thought it was just how it worked but I asked my mom anyway. When I showed my mom I had an allergic reaction and my am looked like I had a REALLY bad sun burn. My mom gave me allergy medicine and after that I was all good. On Thursday my mom took me to the docter to see what was wrong with my shoulder and why did I react to the cream. The docter told me my bone was just from growing and throwing and my skin is just sensitive. Tomorrow I am leaving at noon to go to Toronto to see my cousins and clean up the cottage. I didn't really want to drive all the way to Toronto this week but next week is the NOC dance and it was either this week or next and miss the dance. I chose this week. Don't get me wrong I love riding in a car with my two sisters for 6 hours but this week I really don't feel like a headache. Well seems like that's it for today so don't forget to COMMENT AND TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!

Aloha everyone! So Friday was not my idea of fun, in the morning I painted my nails for the dance and was texting some of my aquantinces. When I got to school I was in a pretty good mood since tonight would be the dance and I was really excited. We started off the day with some 2 point perspective art (WHICH WAS DIFFICULT). Soon enough the bell rang for us to go outside. I was supposed to get snack but I would wait until lunch to eat. Like always I play army tag with Jenn and Allison. While playing Patrick came to tag us and Allison and I split up. I ran through the mulch while Allison ran for the soccer fields, in the mulch I slipped and twisted my ankle. I had to hop to the office because my ankle hurt that badly. They called my mom and my mom took me to the urgent care centre which was not as fast as it should be especially if it's "urgent". I end up popping my tendant and have to have crutches for 1 week and can ONLY walk on it the second week. I can only try out for ball throw if it is next week and that SUCKS:( So now you know to STAY AWAY from MULCH... may I repeat STAY AWAY FROM MULCH!

Bonjour guys! Yesterday I had a opening day parade for my baseball club and we had to walk all the way from TD bank to Turtle Club. Speaking of walking I'M OFF MY CRUTCHES! I don't have to use them to walk anymore which is amazing because they suck! After the parade and big ceremony we got to leave. Allison came over and we had mac-n-cheese (it makes the world go round!). After lunch we went outside and played basketball "games" like HORSE and 21. Later in the day my mom took Allison, my sister Riley, my friend Annalise, her sister Erica and me to the Heart Breaker Challenge which Annalise's mom was competing in. The Heart Breaker Challenge is pretty basic, you have a team of 4 people and you must complete a 5k obstacle course without leaving behind any team members. The first to obstacles were to climb up the Malden park hill (where this is taking place) tied to each other then you must crawl in a mud pit under wires. After that you can ditch the rope and run up and dow some more dirt hills (if you can guess the theme here, great) then you must get over huge tires then hay stacks, after that you couldn't see the rest because they were in the woods. The day ended after that,by the time we got home it was 6 and we didn't have dinner yet, Allison and Anna had to go home and I had to finish homework. Yet I still wonder if Mr.Clements moved our desks and who am I going to sit next to. That's it for now bye:)

Hey everyone, I know I know you must be wondering no cool intro today? No because I am on a really tight time period right now considering I am on a school computer and have a short amount of time till we have to go to an asembly. But any ways this morning we went to the computer lab to play a Rube Goldberg game and let me tell you, it is the most frustrating game ever. But I will let you tell me what you think.

Hey guys, we are learning about Rube Goldberg. Rube is a cartoonist and makes the most complex inventions for the easiest tasks. He is dead now but his inventions are still living.
Hey guys, I am going to tell you about my long weekend, but I know what your thinking " noooo we don't want to hear about you fail long weekend", trust me I wouldn't either but you know what, you have to hear any ways. My long weekend consisted of baseball, baseball and more baseball. After school on Friday I got off the bus and packed for my baseball tournament. We ended leaving around 4:50 and crossing the bridge around 5:30. We went to the Olive Garden for dinner and then to a sports store to buy socks because I forgot to pack some. Our first game was at 11 tomorrow morning so I had some time to kill. When we got to the "hotel" which was actually little cabins the first thing I did was call the front desk and ask for the WIFI password. When I got the WIFI password I texted my friend Olivia that I was here. The next morning we had a game at 11 so we had some time, I first went to the breakfast area for some breakfast. When I got there Olivia and her sister Madeline were there. I made a waffle and drowned it in syrup. We then went up to our rooms and get ready. For the record I got all my stuff ready including getting dressed in 10 minutes, I know i'm boss. We all piled into the car and left for the diamonds. We got to the diamonds at the same time as Allanah, another girl from my team. We entered the ball park and saw some of the teams, there was the LaSalle Athletics 14u along with the 9u. We also recognized the Wildcat teams one being my sister's and the other being the 9u. Our game wasn't till 11 and we arrived at 9, so we could see our competition but also because we needed an hour warm ups. Over all the day was fun and we enjoyed the learning experience and that is the purpose of these tournaments for our team, all building up to August which is provincials and grands. At this tournament the opposing team gave an MVP (most valuable player)out each game and we did the same. Kaitlin Carson (starting pitcher) won two, Greer Simons (short stop) won one, and I (catcher/ center fielder) won one. Overall the weekend was amazing from playing baseball with the team, to just eating breakfast with Olivia and I sure will be looking forward to June 7-9 when we go to the Toledo Tuneup with revenge. *_*
Hey guys it's Maddie! Today we explored Tagxedo and we had to associate the words with fear. Yesterday we started with them but we had to leave because of track so here is my final one.
