Dear Journal,

Jessie and me waiting for our turn

Talent Show

The school talent show was on Thursday, May 3rd.  Grandma, Grandpa, Grandma, and Pop-pop came to see it.  Jessica and I did a gymnastics routine to swing music.  I think I did good.

Space Camp

I went on a field trip to Space Camp with my gifted class on Friday, May 11th.  It was lots of fun.  It was held at the Kennedy Space Center.  We each got to do one simulator.  I got picked to do the gyroscope.  It spun you all around but I didn't get dizzy or sick.  Mom went as a chaparone.  I also went on a rollercoaster simulator and it was really fun.

Dad's New Car

Dad got his PT Cruiser on Monday the 14th.  I think it's ugly but it's roomy compared to Mom's.

Science Fair

The science fair was held on Tuesday the 15th.  It was for all the gifted classes at Waterford.  It was held in the school cafeteria and they spit us up by grade.  For each grade there was a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons and a few honarary mentions.  I got 2nd place for 4th grade.  Thank you for taking the survey if you did! 

I won 2nd place!

Charlottes Web program

Charlotte's Web

The 4th grade put on the play "Charlotte's Web".  I was backstage and worked the lights with my friend Bailey.  My other friend Chelsa played Fern.  She was good.  Dad liked Lurvy.  He laughed every time Lurvy said "Mr. Zukerman!  Mr. Zukerman!".

Zellwood Corn Festival

On Sunday the 20th we went to the Zellwood Corn Festival.  Grandma and Pop-pop met us there.  Dad got a "Got Milk" temporary tatoo.  Willy Nelson was the main singer.  We ate lots of corn-on-the-cob and drank lots of iced-tea.

The Zellwood corn guy!

 

My FCAT award from the state

4th Grade Awards

On Monday the 21st the school held the 4th grade award ceremony.  I got this certificate from the state of Florida for getting a 5.0 (out of 6.0) on my writting FCATs and for getting outstanding performance in math and reading.  I also won a trophy for getting 1st place in Math Superstars in my class and another trophy for getting straight A's all year and being on the Principal's Honor Roll.  I also won a citizenship award and a reading award in my class.

Harry Potter

Harry Potter Camp

Since Mom is still at work for a couple of weeks, I am going to a few summer camps.  The first one was Harry Potter camp at the Orlando Science Center from May 29th - June 1st.  It was really fun.  We made wands, hats, a potion necklace, and a crystal ball necklace.  We had a tri-wizard competition and a quidditch match.  We were split up into houses.  I was in Gryffindor.  Gryffindor won 1st place in points at the end of the week, so we got some candy as prizes.
