Mostly Red: Wow, you really are a girl who is game for anything! Everyone knows you for your fearless spirit. Put your courage to good use and contunue to try new, exciting things, But remember there's a difference between being daring and being foolish, so be sure to dare with care.

Mostly Orange: Sometimes you're brave, but at times, you take a step back, and that's O.K. It just means that you know you're own comfort zone. You might not be jumping out of an airplane anytime soon, but that doesn't mean you won't eat a new food or try out for a team at school.

Mostly Green: Doing adventurous things can make you a bit nervous. Its' fine to want to feel safe, but you might be missing out on lots of cool experiences, such as meeting new friends or showing off one of your talents. Look inside and find your courage. It could be as simple as oredering for yourself at a restaurant, but who knows? That might lead to bungee jumping someday!

Everlasting Lemonade

Instead of using water for ice cubes use lemonade. That way when you drink your lemonade with lemoanade ice cubes it won't get watered down. It's tart treat!

The Beach.......(AGAIN)!

This beach was completely different it was in Monterey, CA. the water was dirty and was full of chemicals which made it un-safe. My skin is also very itchy from walking in the water for a minute! Then there were the signs that people should NOT make contact with water. It was also really chilly. I'm glad we only stayed an hour to bad though because today I actually brought my swimsuit.
