I went rock climbing about a year ago for the first time at Gravity Vault. I took some challenging routes and decided that I wanted to climb more and more. I go there almost every time my grandparents come up because they like to see me climb up the walls! I enjoy climbing the blue section of the wall on the right. I like going completely upside down and hanging on with just my hands! I also like to hiking to find big boulders to climb. Bouldering is just climbing big rocks without a harness. Thank you Maggie for introducing me into rock climbing!
I have done seven triathlons. My first triathlon I did was at West Point when I was eight years old. My next one is on Saturday at Lake Welch! Last year when I did the Lake Welch Triathlon, I got placed eighth out of seventy-three people, boys and girls, ages seven to fourteen. My most recent Triathlon, I got fifth out of sixty, boys and girls, ages seven to fourteen. I was the first girl out of around thirty, and second in my age group (eleven to twelve) out of around fifteen to twenty, boys and girls, ages eleven to fourteen.
Yes, the picture that I used is my dog when he was a puppy. His name is Sherman and he is two years old. I have two other dogs named Rufus, and Fred. Rufus is nine weeks old and Fred is nine years old (when I was three I used to call Fred, Friend!). Fred was also the first pet that I ever had (besides maybe a couple fish) I have three cats, named Tiny, Daxter (Dax for short) and Luna. Luna is the mother of Tiny and Dax. I have a rescue chinchilla named Snuggles, and two guinea pigs named Scooter and Badger. I have two parakeets named Hedwig and Indigo (my brother wouldn't let me name Indigo, Pigwidgeon). I have a bearded dragon named Velcro that has escaped twice. I have a rabbit named Bunnykins that is friends with my guinea pigs. I have four fish, and three frogs. I have twenty pets in total. We have rehabbed a squirrel, a bat, a chipmunck, and we once had a three legged turtle!
I am on the Loretto Knights Basketball Team (CYO) with Jeffery McDaniel as our coach and 9D Hoops (AAU) with Coach Searight as our coach. I have been played in three seasons of basketball.
Some of my favorites books are, The Mysterious Benedict Society Series, and the Harry Potter Series. My favorite Harry Potter book is The Goblet of Fire (though I love all of them). I am only on the second book of The Mysterious Benedict Society. I also just started Maximum Ride.
The Patriot Swim Team is the swim team that I am currently on. I got the nickname, Weezie, from my swim coach, Bob. This is my fifth year being on a swim team. I have also been to the Junior Olympics for 50 Meter Breaststroke. My friends in the picture are, Amari (black cap), Amelia, (clear googles), and Alexandra, (the smallest one).
