So last weekend the talent scout Kim Meyers came to Alaska to hold auditions. I decided that I wanted to audition for modeling. I wore a white sweater with black pencil dress pants and read high heels.We went to the mall where the auditions were being held and watched some of the others audition first. I was really nervous at first, but when I got on the stage, it wasn’t that bad. I did my walk and then had to go to the judge table where Kim was sitting and find out if I got the callback or not. See, when you were done auditioning you walked up to them, and they handed you a piece of paper, it either said yes, or no. Do you want to know what mine said? It said “Congratulations, You have received got a callback”! It was one of the coolest feelings in the world to know that I got called back.

Later that day we went to the callback at the address given. Looking around the room, there weren’t that many there compared to how many showed up at the mall. When it started, Kim talked about the ARTS, and what it was. Also about how, even though we were all just sitting there, she was still auditioning us, and after we left, she was going to go through all of our applications and pick out the ones that she wanted to invite to Florida to go to the ARTS. ARTS stands for “Applause Rising Talent Showcase”. click on the link to find out more. We were told that if you got picked to go to Florida, you would either receive and email or phone call from Kim saying so. If you were chosen, you had to go to a Q&A the next day.

We waited, and waited, and waited, and we still hadn’t heard anything, so I thought that I wasn’t picked. Until about 10 o’clock my mom got an email saying that I had been invited to the ARTS showcase down in Florida!! I was so excited I literally jumped. The next day we went to the Q&A and listened to people who had gone to ARTS before, and listened to their stories, and about how things would work out. Afterward, we had a week to confirm that we were going to take the trip to Florida. After discussing it, we decided that i was going to go to ARTS in Orlando, Florida in June, and just today, we confirmed it.

I lost my marbles from my head, I lost my marbles yes I did. 🙂

On my vacation this summer I went to a marble factory. And there I bought a marble. We got to watch a demonstration on how they used to hand make the marbles instead of the machines that make them now. The guy who did the demonstration showed us how to make different things and ended up using a lot of different blow torches. It was really cool. The factory I went to was called Moon Marble, and here is their website,

So after reading this post I only have one request of you. Take a vacation to Kansas, and go to Moon Marble.

(my Aunt Gloria and me with some of the hand-made marbles.)

(But try not to lose your marbles while your there :D)

 

Well this summer I went on vacation to visit my uncle in Kansas. We did lots of fun things like go to the zoo, amusement parks, and water parks. We also ended up going to my uncles wife’s niece’s community pool.

      And at the zoo i got to ride a camel, and feed some birds.

     Over all it was a pretty awesome trip. We did other things like go to marble factory, but that’s another post, another day. I would really, really like to go back there again, but in that picture you see above, that bird, took a nice little bathroom break off of my arm, haha. A little thing to make you either A. cringe, or B. laugh :D.

Cat, Dog, Bunny, and Camillian were all ordinary household pets. And all were owned by the same little boy, Tommy.  But one day Tommy’s family decided to go on a family road trip through Arizona.  There wasn’t quite enough room in the car, so all of the animals were put in a big kennel in the back.  Tommy’s dad wasn’t really paying attention when he was loading kennel, and one of the hooks to keep it closed came undone.  The back was so full, that the door wouldn’t close, so they had to tie it shut.  It was still open enough for a person, or let’s say an animal to fit through.  And so the trip began!

The road was bumpy so with every little jump the car did, more of the hooks on the kennel became undone until all of them were unhooked.  As they were leaving a pit stop, the jolt of the car starting again pushed Cat, Dog, and Bunny against the unclosed door, the result, them piling on top one of the other on the dirty ground.  Camillian, who is still left in the kennel, is always the one who doesn’t want to be left out, so he jump out and landed on top of the pile of his friends.  Tommy’s family drove, away not know that their pets were out of the car, and left them in the dust, (literally).

One other thing that had fallen out with them is a copy of the map Tommy’s family was using.  Every body was coughing as the dust cleared and looking in shock as their family drove away.  They stood up and Camillian stepped on the map.  Always being jumpy, he (obviously) jumped onto dogs back and screamed.  Cat grabbed the map and looked at it, intrigued by what it could be.  Bunny then took it out of Cats hand and said “I’ve seen one of these before, it’s what Tommy is following. It tells humans where to go or something like that.”  Everybody gathered around. “You see that dot? That must be where they are going!So that’s where we need to go. But….. how are we going to get there.” “Well by walking of course, or in your case hopping.”  Dog said. After him saying that the four friends headed down the road in search of their owners.

As they went on they bickered. Lets go this way, no let’s go that way.  They had  gone pretty far.. about half way across the map I would say when they came to a gas station. They took this time to look at the map again. Surely someone would notice four animals at a gas station. They were in the middle of a heated argument when Cat yelled at all of them to be quiet.  She pointed to a car with a trunk that was too full and a space barely big enough for a person to fit through.  They all cheered with joy and ran to it.  They filed in one by one, and went to their spots as if they were never gone.  An ya never know, maybe they will have more adventures, but hopefully not.
