seventeen.

today is my seventeenth birthday. and i spent it all at school. our church has this "homeschool academy" called mci that i attend on mondays and wednesdays.

but it was really fun. my friends made me a birthday hulaskirt with streamers and everyone sang to me at lunch (which was kind of uncomfortable. 200 people singing happy birthday to you. and looking at you. haha not my thing. but it was very nice of them to do so. :D)

and now i am home with my family (my favorite place to be!) and the girls decorated my room with streamers and "happy birthday" signs. and we are going to have cake later.

so it's been a good one. people keep telling me that i am so OLD. haha. :)

thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday via voice, email, or gmail status. love you guys! i have the best friends ever.
