Cherry Point

We had a great week. Last Monday was Daddy's birthday. He wanted to go to Outback for dinner. Then we went back and ate the Jello cake we baked Sunday night.

On Friday we had a field trip to park. Mom got to come by. 

On Saturday we went to New Bern. We walked around downtown. We went to the original Pepsi place. I always say that fuzzy pop is yucky, but I tried it anyway. I told Mom and Dad it wasn't so bad. After exploring downtown we went to see The Jungle Book movie. We liked but did not love it. I think Mom was thankful we weren't pressuring her for Jungle Book merchandise.

Near New Bern is a lot of businesses named Trent, because there is a Trent River there. We found a Trent auto dealer.

On Sunday we went to the air show at the Marines Cherry Point Air Base. It was awesome. We stayed all day. They had all kinds of military equipment: trucks, cargo planes, bomber, tanks, portable cannons, fighter jets (including the F22 Raptor), helicopters, fire trucks, drones, portable kitchens, prop planes, and more. They also had different displays like chemical detection equipment. The military guys and gals were so nice to us. They even had some Canadian military equipment on display. It was HUGE!

We got to go in most of the equipment. For the fighter jets, we got to get up close to the cockpit and look right in.

I asked one of the drone engineers a lot of questions. I have a book about drones.

All during the show they had all kinds to displays going on - a jet truck, the F22 Raptor, helicopters, old style prop planes, bombing display. The show ended with a performance by the Blue Angels.

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!
