Man of the Wilderness

Hello there! This weekend Mom and Dad took me to pretend camping. That's when you go hang out at a campsite with the Jaycees but don't spend the night. For some reason, they didn't think I would be good at sleeping in a tent.

The best thing about camping was digging in the dirt. Between my drool, the dirt, the stickiness of dinner,  and the smell of camp smoke on my clothes, I was ripe for a bath at the end of the evening. But I don't care, I love to be dirty and I know nothing of these "germs" others speak about.

Paige and Brendan have a pop-up camper. I had a great time opening and shutting its door and dragging their broom outside.

After dinner we made s'mores. They live up to their name!

Speaking of nature, we have 13 year cicadas going off. These crazy bugs live in the ground for 13 years and then come out and make more noise than a troop of toddlers on a rampage. They are supposed to go away in a few weeks and will come back in 2024. I'll be causing all kinds of new trouble then.


Need me to hold your phone?

Bog Breath

Last week my pumpkin project book was due. I had to do a book report and make a pumpkin look like a character from the book. I chose "Dog Breath." It is about a dog with really stinky breath. They almost got rid of the dog, but she became a hero. She saved her family from some bad guys.

We had an open house on Friday so parents could come see our projects.

Tinker Toys

Big things this week! Trent moved from his toddler bed to a twin bed.

I went to a tinkering day camp and made a wood reindeer. I didn't want to leave when Mom and Dad came to pick me up. We even had a fire. It was fun to toss pine branches on it. It made a cool crackling sound.

Today is my last day of school before break. Yesterday we had our party. Mrs. N went all out! We have stockings, multiple Christmas trees, lights, and she turned our desks into cars on the Polar Express. Mrs. N even works as a part-time elf when she's not teaching. I love hearing her elf stories.

Dog Breath

I really like Nerf. I got to pick out one at Target this weekend for a belated birthday gift from Mommy and Daddy.

I typically cry at hair cuts or demand to wear googles, but tonight I was ok. I didn't cry.

Mommy and I got my pumpkin book project done tonight. I had to make a pumpkin look like a character in a book. We rocked the glue gun. We made the dog's bad breath out of stuffing Betty had pulled out of her dog bed. Creative!
