Walk (corn) 3:15:00 [2] 3.5 mi (55:43 / mi)

This wasn't any old walk, this was wondering through an 8-acre of corn! In other words, this was a MAZE! We got up bright and early and popped in the car and drove to "Davis's Mega Maze". Each years for the past 5 years Davis and his workers team together and turns their corn feild into a MASSIVE corn MAZE! every year their is a theme to the corn maze and this yea's theme was "LOST VEGAS" the maze had two dice mowed in to the middle. SO we got to this corn maze and as we learned from other years, completing this maze, that it is almost impossible to do unless you have a map. Now they don't sell out any old map, they sell postcards that have the picture of the WHOLE maze, and its perfect to use as a map. So we buy a few postcards. As it turns out half of our family DON'T want to use the postcards and half of them DO. So we have half of our party wandering aimlessly and half standing and staring at the map the whole time! So as you can see this was very difficult for us tro complete. But, we stuck to it and we never gave up, and we reached our goal to find and complete the level seven challenge!! (the level seven challenge id to find every quiz question, charm, map section and locate all the briges throughout the WHOLE MAZE!! In the end we were succesful and extremely proud. Although we did have some trouble in the maze. We agreed that next year's maze, we will split up in two, half of us with maps and half of us without, and we will see who wins!!

Water Skiing 30:00 [3]

After the corn maze we all took a break and rested a little bit. Once dad was done with his nap we had an idea to go water skiing. So we geared up loaded hte boat. Joseph was too hung up in his computering he refusd to go so I guess it is just me and my parents to go, WHAT FUN! So once we got out there, I watched my mom do her MASTER rooster tails to warm me up. After that, I got out there and first I started ou ton two skiies, and di a decent run and got exteremely comfortable going over the wake, so once I dropped, my dad suggested that I work on my one ski get up. So I tried it. It didn't seem to come out succesfully but my last two runs I think it clicked. something came to me and helped me so it, I thought I figured it out!! IU think I'm started to get it! Those runs I think I got up for a few seconds, and then wobbled out of it. I actuazlly think that this practicing actually might be paying off! We'll have to see tomorow!

Run (road) 25:00 [3] 1.5 mi (16:40 / mi)

Today I decided to go on a run witrh my mom and my brother. I'm always up for some good excercise! WE decided to run all the way to the dam and back to the house. This totaled to 2 MILES!! My brother and I starrted off by a really quick pace and I kept it up with him! It was so quick that my mom couldn't keep up with us! so we blaster to the dam and back until I caught up with my mom walking towards us. So I decided to stop and walk back with her. even though I didn't run two full miles, i was VERY impressed with myself for running such a quick pace and be able to stick to it. I AM VERY PROUD, and maybe next time, I can be even better!
