Just another weblog


There is a school book we’re reading that’s called Joan of Arc.

We kept reading other books that were about Joan of Arc.

And then we read one that gave away the end of the book. It was really annoying because it gave away the end of the story.

And then there was another one that was about Joan of Arc and that gave away the middle of the story, but Mom skipped that one so it didn’t ruin the story.

She was a peasant girl. She said angels were talking to her and telling her to go to the war to help save France.

When we read, we have a map. I put where her travels are on the map and where her wars were.

We’re not done with the Joan of Arc book yet, but I know that she died at the end.

Baking Soda Explosion

sodaTo do this explosion, you need

1 tablespoon of vinegar

2 tablespoons of baking soda


When you mix them together it overflows. I like it because it’s like a volcano.

You don’t have to do it in the basement but you at least have to do it in a big bowl otherwise it will make a huge mess.

Gross Olives

I don’t like olives. They are gross–really gross. When I was over at my friend’s house, they made macaroni and cheese with olives.
And then I had to eat it because it was the only thing for dinner.
My friend eats olives right out of the jar. That’s sick.

Here’s a funny story. When my mom was little, she told her sister that the olives were grapes. And so she fell for it and took a big bite of them and she ended up finding out that they were olives and she was spitting them out.
My mom hates olives too so that was really mean.

I am in level B and I really like piano.

I like the deep notes.

I love intervals too. I like thirds. They are my favorite.

I like to play Mary Had a Little Lamb.

I always break the keys. Every time I hit them too hard they’re gone.

We have an old piano. Then my Mom always gets mad because it costs so much to get it repaired and because I know I shouldn’t break the piano keys.

My aunt taught me to play butt music. You sit on the piano and you move.

But now I’m not allowed to do it because I always break the keys.

My mom is my very own piano teacher.

I love the piano.

Tae Kwon Do

Last night at Tae Kwon Do, I kicked the target 30 times in a row without putting my foot down.

Somebody holds the big blue target and then you kick it. It doesn’t hurt.

It’s not really hard to do it.
