New Bed

Well, since B broke his bed, Mom and Dad decided mine was at risk of the same issue down the road. I was jealous of Bs new bed as well. So when B and Mom cleaned his room, Dad and I went to Ikea and I picked out the same bed for my room. After a few long days of cleaning and purging my room was all set. We said goodbye to a lot of stuffed animals. The rest are all crammed into pillow cases and stored under my bed. Mom hid them all with the lego bins. We still have a few more projects to pull the room together. It is really neat and organized for once!

4-H Horticulture Contest

We entered the contest on a whim. We knew we wouldn’t have a lot of study time with our travels and wrapping up school. I did find time to work on it a bit. I really enjoyed learning more about plants. I even added a few new ones to the garden! The contest was hard but I had a great time! I struggled with the judging but I am not sure why. I really thought I followed the directions but guess I needed to learn more about it. I cam in 2nd place. I missed 1st by one point! Oh well. All the ribbon winners got to take home a plant s o that was really the highlight of the event for me. Our team came in first place too!

I had a lot of fun and I THINK I want to try it again next year when I have a better chance to study and prepare.

Ukulele Class

We enjoyed a week of ukulele music with Grandma Susie at the library. We took a class for a few hours daily for a week and then had a concert at the end. I loved play on my new uke. I did not enjoy the song writing part of the class. I wanted to write about sharks but the other kids wanted to write things that weren’t true about shirts, you know MYTHS! The verse turned out okay but I still wasn’t happy.  When we graduated the program we went to Build a Bear to celebrate a fun week. B and I got jigglypuff, a pokemon.

Happy 13th Birthday Breighton

We had a fun time celebrating Breighton’s birthday. We had a party at the beach for him. I loved building sand castles, riding in the kayak, swimming out the the sandbar and having a splashing good time with my friends. I caught a bunch of sea critters as usual. We had a little nursery going. Everything was safely released back to the water before we went home. B got diving lessons for his birthday and I was brought along while he shopped for some gear. I loved the huge sharks teeth, i know I am not smiling but I really did enjoy them. I made guacamole at Grandma and Grandpa’s house over the weekend. I even perfected Happy Birthday with my armpit farts. Don’t ask! I am strange!

Fun Sail Fun

We had a great time at Fun Sail today. I loved riding on the larger boats. We had a fun trip around the intercostal. When I waited for a paddle board to free up I found lots of sea creatures. Then I was off on the paddle board! I was all over the place. Mom was really impressed with how well I got the handle of it. From my vantage point I could see the marine life better. I found some HUGE conchs and whelks! I jumped in and fished them out and brought them in for everyone to see. The horse conch was massive. I took good care of it and made sure it was in the water. The other kids wanted to see and touch it. I protected it and let them touch gently. When I felt they had had enough I grabbed the paddle board and headed back out to release my creatures away from little hands. Good timing too as a huge storm pushed in and the called everyone in off the water. We had a great day. I really needed the salt therapy! Home and cleaned up and being goofy as normal! Night-Night on my head with a lego track holding it on. It was my hat for the evening.
