Monthly Pop!

Hey guys. I want to do a monthly "news cast" and it is called the monthly pop!

 So this month (November ) a lot has gone on in my life. Fourth grade musical, puppy sitting ( a lot), and some other funny moments. But here is some news worldwide or across the nation.



        This month a huge, I mean HUGE cold front came through for weeks on end. Much of the nation COVERED with snow. Even down here, in Houston, we had to get our big coats out. Brrrrrrrrr!
   Also, we kid of had a " world record day " this month. No, not a official holiday. But so many people broke world records. Like the longest weather report non-stop. And the tallest man met the shortest man. So cool!
  
So, that is it! See ya!

Give thanks and show gratitude

                                          So, yesterday we had our thankful party. It was so fun! The theme was "Charlie Brown". We got to play Pictionary, hot potato, and we had cute little Charlie Brown water bottles. ( Yellow duct tape and a black stripe drawn). But what was best was the popcorn. Nah I'm kidding! The best part was writing what we were thankful for. I'm thankful for a mom and dad, a house, my hermit crab, food, water, and maybe... my brothers. Again, kidding! I love my brothers.

                           So, this Thanksgiving, give thanks, be thankful, and show gratitude.  Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Rainbows and unicorns,pixies and knomes

                          I love rainbows! Pretty unicorns leaping and pixies fluttering. Gnomes running around. Imagine that! Magical ,fairytale lands right here.



                        So you are walking down a forest made of candy and a gnome crosses your path. A pixie flutters in your face. Then you trip and land in a mud pile that tastes like chocolate. Everyone laughs,, but you are just licking it and enjoying the moment!

Up in the Sky

                                                          Up in the sky
                                   I see a tree
                                       I see an elephant
                                                        Looking at me

                                   Up in the sky
                                      I see a girl
                                          I see a dancer
                                       Spinning! A whirl!
  
                                      I see a mailbox
                                        Inside are some socks
                                              And in that is a
                                        Stuffed, orange fox
                  

                                  I wish they were real
                                     Up there and proud
                                        But I guess they're not
                                   'Cause they are only clouds

Good bye Braces!

              For the past 10/11 months I have had braces on the top front four teeth, along with an expander on the roof of my mouth, and an expander on the bottom of my mouth. I have gotten used to them it has always kind of stink. I think to my self " it is going to feel so weird when I get all of this off".
       Speaking of getting all of this stuff off... I get it off next appointment!!!! Next time I go to the orthodontist I get everything off! I am SUPER excited! Since I am not allowed to eat popcorn, or caramel ( my two favorite snacks in the world ! : (   )  I'm going to make my dad give me a huge bowl of popcorn, and give me a bunch of caramel!
      


I AM SO EXCITED!
GOOD BYE BRACES!!!!!!!

My house broke down

                                                        My house broke down
   

                    

                                                     My house broke down!
                                                      The walls crashed to the ground
                                                        Then it rained 
                                                           and I have a lot to say
                          
                                                         All my food blew off 
                                                            with the wind
                                                             The giant foot destroyed the loft      
                                                              but it all depends
                                                       
                                                                that  I am an ant 
                                                            it does happen quite often
                                                              and my house is light
                                                                  
                                                              but that giant foot
                                                                  that stomped on me
                                                                    gave me quite a fright

  My team is the Wisconsin Badgers and there is one girl on my team from last year. So, I'm excited thet I getto make lots of new friends. My number is 14. Last year it was 3. So taking my number from last year and putting a desimol in between my number last year and  this year you get 3.14. PI. My dad tought me that.
