Laura M., age 15, North Carolina

Up at 9:00 and showered off the acid rain. Ate breakfast and chilled. Courtney left for doctor appointment at 10:30 and came back before I left. Dad came at 1:00 — 2 hours late. We drove up to Boone and got here by 5:00. Was bored until dinner. Me, Ray, Dad and Becca went on a walk. It was nice. (The Karauses’ road is paved now 🙁 .) Came back and just chilled inside.
