Happy (Late) New Year!!

By Jaicey | Uncategorized

WOW! It has been literally FOREVER since I’ve written a blog post. Sorry to all you faithful readers out there! ;D

Just a quick update:

I’m now 15! A lot has happened since I last wrote. Almost a whole year has passed of course. I’m now officially an actress/model! I’m not famous yet, but I’m moving up the entertainment food chain… slowly. You can find me on my agency’s page: Helen Wells! I have been in one commercial so far, and I have a job coming up on January 9th!

I also am in the process of writing a book! I began it sometime last spring. It started as a school project. The assignment was to write a short story. My classmates and I all wrote our own unique short stories, ranging from squirrels to arsonists to princesses and magical cottages. Mine is about a spy, but that’s all I will say for now. I may preview a bit of it here, as a blog post, but it’s not finished yet, so I might wait a bit until I feel comfortable letting my brainchild out into the world! 😉 Although, the finished product will probably look and sound a lot different once I am satisfied and done perfecting and polishing it.

I still have a long way to go. I have roughly 13,500 words, but I also have a ton in my literature notebook that I haven’t transferred to digital form yet. I’m super excited to be back to writing! It’s the new year, so I figured I should act like it!

Hopefully, I will be posting once a week, if time allows. School hasn’t started back up for me yet, so I’m a little more free to write. Once it starts back up I will have to squeeze some time out of my day for this and my book. Although, I am starting to wake up a lot earlier, so maybe I will be able to squeeze out a little post in the morning after my bible reading before I start my school day!

My next post will most likely be focused on the start of school, and maybe I’ll throw in a little about my acting job and a trip I’ll be taking mid-January! I’m über excited about this year! It’s going to be A-MA-ZING!! I can feel it already!! Get ready people!! 2016 is going to be my year!! And you can make it yours too!

Stay tuned!

Goats, goats, and more goats!

By Jaicey | Uncategorized

On Wednesday, March 19, I was at a goat milk farm in Scottsburg, IN. Goat Milk Stuff. My co-op homeschool group went for a field trip, and I stayed until Friday. My homeschool co-op took a tour around the farm. We saw the Soap room, which is where the Jonas family, Mr. and Mrs. Jonas and their kids Brett, Colter, Emery, Fletcher, Greyden, Hewitt, Indigo, and Jade make the Goat Milk Stuff products. Then we went to the barn to see the kids (baby goats). We saw the chickens, rabbits, and the dogs, Thor and Baxter. After the tour was over, we left to eat lunch and came back to drop me off.

First, we all ate dinner, we had banana pancakes (which were the best pancakes I’ve ever had). Then Jackson, Joshua, Hewitt, and I went to the barn. Next, I milked goats. I didn’t know how, so Hewitt taught me. While Hewitt, Colter, and I milked goats, Jackson, Joshua, Emery, Fletcher, and Indigo played tag.

Once the goats had been milked, we all went into the hayloft and played tag. When we got bored with that, we played hide-and-go-seek. Later, when it was dark, we went and played Ghost in the Graveyard. That game is sort of a mix between tag and hide-and-go-seek. The tagger, the Ghost, hides, while the rest of the players count ‘one o’clock, two o’clock, three o’clock, rock, four o’clock, five o’clock, six o’clock, rock, seven o’clock, eight o’clock, nine o’clock, rock, ten o’clock, eleven o’clock, twelve o’clock rock midnight!‘ They all spread out to look for the “Ghost”. When the Ghost is found, the finder yells, ‘Ghost in the Graveyard!’ and everyone sprints back to base. The person tagged by the Ghost is the next Ghost.

After about an hour of playing Ghost in the Graveyard, the rest of my family left. Since it was kidding season (when the kids are born), all the Jonas kids took a shift watching the goats. I worked a shift with Brett. We watched the goats from 10 PM to midnight. While on shift, we watched the Princess Bride. Jim Bob, one of the barn cats, sat on my lap while I drank hot chocolate and watched the last half of the movie. I love animals.
