A chapter's ended, but the story's only just begun...

Bonjour, tout le monde!
Another school year down, and many more to go! Friday the 3rd was our last day of school, and it was a little more eventful than the last days of years past. I would have posted about this earlier, but things were busy around here.

It was all about dumb, boring movies that week.

Lilly was about to literally die of boredom in history class. We had to watch a war movie, and she HATES war movies. I do, too- it’s not like they are overly entertaining or anything. Anyway, she could not sit still for the life of her. I just rested my head on my purse and tried to take a nap. That’s what 99% of the class did. It was awful. Just awful. War movies must be a guy thing; my brother and dad love them. Lilly says her dad and uncles do, too. Chrissa’s brother is obsessed with them as well…

We are now going to “surprise” her and make her watch Dear John. That isn’t all war, but still...I didn’t really enjoy it. I doubt she would like it.

In English class, we watched like every animated Disney movie ever. Bolt wasn’t included in this, sadly. That’s the only animated Disney film I enjoy.

In Spanish class, we watched West Side Story…yeah. I have nothing to say about this. Fortunately, it was in English. On a side note, Micki (who wore actual clothes this time) downed another bag of Goldfish.

We didn’t really watch movies in any of our other classes. They were just boring. We kind-of sat there, and some people had their hands in their purses and were texting. Yes, I was one of those offenders. If you do it right, you won’t get caught.

When the final bell rang, Lilly and I skipped down the hallway and sang as loudly as we could. Melanie dragged behind us and laughed.


Lilly then forced Melanie to skip with us. Lilly belted out “We’re the three best friends that anyone could have”, which is from The Hangover, one of her favorite movies. She repeated it until Melanie and I finally joined it. Hey, we had to make that girl happy somehow…


The skipping randomly stopped when Lilly caught sight of Micki. She left us and chased after her.

And I have no idea what happened. “It’s going to be okay, Sabine. I’m taking care of things,” was all Lilly said to me when I asked her about her confrontation with Micki…

This cannot possibly be good…

Don't feel guilty Sabine... I have checked my voicemail during class. I just hid it under my hair. The teacher was very clueless, obviously. That and he was always late starting class, even if he was in the room (which he was).

I can't text in class since I don't have a phone. I just usually scribble in my note when I'm bored.

The last week of school always drags on! I'm glad you survived even if you had to endure a ton of boring movies. I hope everything with Micki is okay. Take care, Sabine.

Thank goodness summer is here! I miss school, but I'm really excited that I'll be able to have more time for the blog.
Movies are fun to watch in class... when they're not about war or gangs in Los Angeles. Oh well. At least you made it through the week!
Hope your summer is off to a great start. :)

It's great that you have such good friends!

Congrats on finishing Grade 8!

Sorry it took so long for us to respond to this. Our internet has been screwy so we haven't been online much.

Great pics of you three!

Love,
Felicity and the Girls
