Mi Weekend

Last Thursday we tried to fly to Michigan, but they had an air traffic delay. So we went home from the airport and went back Friday morning. Aunt Kat picked us up in Flint. Then we went to Grandpa and Grandma's and had dinner. After dinner Grandpa helped me with my math homework. He had to get the dictionary out (and explain what a dictionary is to me). Grandma fixed Trent's green blankie.

It was cold, but no real snow, just a dusting. We had hoped to go sledding.

 Saturday morning we learned how to shoot a bow. Trent broke one of Grandpa's crossbow arrows because he missed the practice target and put it through some plywood. Then we burned their Christmas tree.

On Saturday afternoon we went to the Snow Fest in Frankenmuth. The pictures are on Aunt Kat's phone. We should get them later. Every body had fun but me. I whined that my foot was itchy.

Saturday night Mommy went to a pottery place. We stayed home and watched Princess Bride and Charlotte's Web.

Sunday morning we got up and went back to the airport. It was a short, but fun weekend.

Homework and a dictionary.

Up a tree.

Bow and arrows.

Goodbye Christmas tree.

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!
