Welcome back, my friends!

I don't know if any of you know this or not, and I'm sorry that I failed to mention it, but June is National Scoliosis Month! In fact, June 27th is National Scoliosis Day.

Scoliosis is, as defined by the Mayo Clinic, a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during the growth spurt just before puberty. This is nothing rare, however; 2-3% of the entire population is affected by scoliosis to some degree.

I was diagnosed with the condition about 2 or 3 years ago, I believe, with a sufficiently large curve in a very abnormal place. Don't worry about me, though; with a little physical therapy, I'm good to go and be clumsy like every other teenager!  :) (For more on my diagnosis, click here.)

Others who have scoliosis more severely may choose more influential treatment options, such as back braces or even surgery. 

Left untreated, the condition can cause lung/heart damage, intense back pain, and extreme fashion tragedies. If you are concerned that you or a loved one may have scoliosis, please contact and schedule an appointment with your chiropractor or general physician. Then you can join the Curvy Club with me, and we can have some straight talk. *wink*

In spite of my slight affliction, today was the first day of a softball camp I signed up for at a local college. A few friends from previous teams are attending as well, which will hopefully distract me from the skin-melting heat that we currently have going on around here. Pray for us. Please.

I do believe that I will single-handedly boost the economy at least 200 percent from my water/sunscreen purchases. I really do.

In coordination with this death sentence that the sun has decided to impose, I have for you a pun revolving around the largest mass in our solar system (do you see what I did there?).

I stayed up all night wondering where the sun went, but then it dawned on me.

...and fried me like bacon.

Stay sunburn-free, everyone! Have a good week, and remember; if you suspect you have scoliosis, go get it checked out!

MONDAY PUN-DAY 6/8 (Happy Birthday, Deddy!)

Hello, friends! Guess what?

You: What?!

Today is Deddy's birthday! He's 21. Sort of. Not really.

I'm so glad God has provided a father like him to lead me and help me with my math homework when I'm confused.

His favorite dessert is key lime pie, so we bought him a few slices.  :)

Earlier this week was National Doughnut Day! Krispy Kreme (the Dunkin' Donuts of the South) offered flat-out, free doughnuts, while other places provided them with the purchase of a beverage.

Just for the record, we certainly did not go to three different places to get free doughnuts, because that would be... ridiculous... 

Brochacho: it wuz good 2


Also earlier in the week, Kensington Palace released the first new photos of the latest addition to the Royal Family, Princess Charlotte, along with her brother Prince George!

Aren't they sweet?

To see all the new royal photos, click here. I believe the date of Princess Charlotte's Christening was announced as well; if I'm not mistaken, it should be in about a month.

Back in America, did anyone watch the 147th Belmont Stakes on Saturday? It was amazing! American Pharoah (yes, his name is misspelled), who happened to be the top pick to win, finished and won the mile and a half-long race in just 2 minutes and 26.65 seconds. This latest win has made him the 12th Triple Crown winner in history, breaking the 37 year losing streak of previous contenders.

Fun fact: You can't really see it in this picture, but American Pharoah's tail is a bit short; another horse chewed it off when he was younger. Disgusting, I know.

To celebrate American Pharoah's win, I have for you today a most magnificent horse pun.

While the horse's stable gait calmed his owners, it caused a real stirrup of emotions in the crowd.

I know, I know... That was foal.

Brochacho: stop

You didn't like my mane joke?

Brochacho: seriously plz stop

Happy Birthday, Deddy! Don't worry, you're not quite pasture prime.

Yay, June's here!

June is actually a pretty busy month around here! Let's take a look at our list, shall we?
  • Deddy's birthday! Not sure what I'm getting him yet, but it will probably be somewhere along the lines of candy.
  • VBS! (That's Vacation Bible School for you non-Southerners). The theme for this year for churches across the nation is this whole jungle-safari thing. Now, I'm not usually one for the jungle, or bugs, or outdoors in general, but I'll do it for the church. (Plus it's inside in the air conditioning.) I encourage you all to volunteer at your local church! I'm going to be working with 4th graders again this year.  :)
Speaking of the general outdoors, I got sunburned at a yard sale yesterday., people.

The sad thing is, we were just at the beach for a week and I somehow avoided the sun's evil rays enough to return unscathed. (Momma did not prove to be so lucky, however.) My success was accomplished through many, many sunscreen applications, even for the indoor pool.

Brochacho: thats... embarrassing

It worked, didn't it?

Brochacho: it didnt yesterday


The beach was fun, though. We sent off 2 more messages in bottles, but they were kind of floating towards the beach when we left...

We also discovered some dill pickle popcorn, which was absolutely delicious, even at 3 AM with my heartburn.

Finally, in honor of VBS, I have for you...a jungle pun!

Trying to show off your bird knowledge? Well, toucan play it that game.

Remember to sign up for VBS!
