Our new deck

Well, our house under construction. Men are working on a two-story deck. So far they've done SO good!!!! I've been on BOTH stories. They already have the roof up on the second story.  So they also have the doors up!! They are really fast at doing their  job!

" Saving" Cats

Today me, Purple pixie, and Tuki all wanted to pretend to save cats. We have saved eight cats and one raccoon. They are stuffed animals, though. Some of their names are Butterfly, Tina, And Sox. We can't wait till school is over so we can turn our school room into a vet clinic. I'm going to be the check out. I would love it if I could be the check out lady!!!!! I love playing "Saving" cats!!!!

Today my mom and I made a skirt. First we had to measure the waist. Then I sewed the casing for the elastic band. Then we measured the length. Then I added the ruffle trim (that's me adding the trim <--- ) and hem. Then I put the elastic in and sewed the side. It's the best skirt I've ever had!

Moving Beyond the Page

This week for Literature, Tuki and I are reading a book called Charlotte's Web. It's a book about a girl named Fern who stops her Dad from killing the runt of a pig family.  It's really fun, sad, and based on lots of things that are true. I think one of the true parts of the story are that it shows the life cycle of a spider. The life cycle is interesting and it shows it all through the book. I hope that if you read it, you will like it, too!!

The Co-op

Today when we were the Co-op, Tuki (my little sister) and I were getting a snack - it was a strawberry fruit bar, and guess what? When we were taking one out, two fell out of the turnstile, but one was totally empty! We thought someone took it and put back the wrapper. But it turned out it looked like it wasn't even open - it was a mistake from the factory. But one of my ideas was that maybe someone took it to the restroom, ate it, and used clear nail polish to seal it and put it back without anyone seeing. :)

I decided NOT to have the strawberry fruit snack - instead I got a Chocolate-Peppermint Luna bar. YUM!

Our artist of the week

Drawing with Only One Line!
Our artist of the week was Paul Klee. I drew a picture of a house. These are the instructions.1. You draw anything you want without picking up your pen. 2.Color the picture in all the way. Those are the instructions on how to make a one-line picture!!!!  Paul Klee is one of my favorite artists. My top favorite artist is Hundertwassen. He drew a picture of a person with HUGE eyes! Me, my Mom, and my sisters made his pictures. I think they look really cool!!!

Swim meet

Today I was in a swim meet. I had to swim butterfly, breaststroke, and freestyle. It was super cool!!!!!!! At the swim meet, when I wasn't swimming, I was playing with my friend M&M. We had a super fun time together!!! It was the best swim meet ever! And I swam 2 seconds faster on my breaststroke! =)

I'm Excited!

I'm excited because since we're halfway through the year (the school year) we are going to go to an American Girl Doll fashion show! My mom got us tickets. I'm going to wear an outfit that matches my doll. I have Julie. I Julie because she is a very amazing American Girl.

I'm also excited about the plays I'm in. One of them is called The Taming of the Shrew by William Shakespeare. And the other is Tea Time for Felicity, an American Girl play. I like being in plays because then I won't be afraid of talking to people anymore.

So I was wondering if you have anything going on that you're excited about???

My favorite actress and actors

I just love Emma Watson!!!! She is like the best actress in the WORLD!! I've seen all the Harry Potter movies (even the 7th movie) and she plays my FAVORITE person in Harry Potter - Hermione Granger!!! She's also in Ballet Shoes. I also like Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe. They play Ron Weasly (Rupert G.) and Harry Potter (Daniel R.). We also heard all the books on CD!!!! I have to go! Good night!!

Last Day of the Weekend!

Today I was in a swim meet. I swam a 100-IM, two relays, and a 25-fly. On fly I think I got 2nd place. While I was waiting at the swim meet I played and talked with my sisters and friends. One of my coaches (I'll call him "Shaggy Dog") keeps teasing me. Shaggy Dog even threw me in the pool one time! When I got home I played chess with my Daddy and WON 5 times in a ROW! After that I played outside - it was FREEZING and windy! Only a few of my friends were over. Then they left to go home. I helped my parents in the downstairs playroom - I was a HUGE help my mom says. After dinner we played the Lego Harry Potter game. My little sister, Zucchini, won. It is the best game I've played. We have ALL the HP Lego sets. We got them for Christmas. Now it's time for quiet reading. I'm reading Knight's Castle by Edward Eagar. It's part of a series. The series starts with the book Half Magic - it's really awesome. Now I have to go. Good night!

Violin Lessons

Me with my violin at my recital!
Today I went to violin. My teacher was in China for a month and I had a substitute teacher while she was gone. My regular teacher was back today! I was very excited, even though I felt shy! I did very well today. I played Perpetual Motion - both regular and with 16th notes (double every note). I played Go Tell Aunt Rhody but not regular - in A Minor! It sounds like a snake charmer!

School's Out ... Or Is It?

If you go to school, you probably don't have school on snow days. But If your homeschooled you have school every day but Saturday and Sunday. They even have school on days YOU don't! If you do go to school this will seem funny. But not for homeschooled kids or teens! They think it is really cool because maybe they are going to learn a lot of stuff in a few hours! They think homeschool is great! Here are three reasons I like being homeschooled: One, you can spend more time with your family; Two, you don't have to switch rooms and have the same classes as your brothers and sisters; Three you have every meal of the day in your own house!!!
