On Sunday, August 6th, I went to see an Orlando Miracle game
with my girl scout troop. The Orlando Miracle are the girls
basketball team in Orlando, Florida. The Miracle won. We
had fun and we got a water bottle with a ball in it as a
souvenir. We got to go onto the floor and practice
dribbling. We got to meet the coach. We learned the
Orlando Miracle dance. We had a great
Islands of Adventure
On Wednesday, August 9th, I went to Islands
of Adventure with Debbie and Stephanie Garrison and Mom. The best
ride was Spiderman. I liked the way the Dr. Suess land
was set up. The Cat In The Hat was neat too. I was
1/2 inch too short for the three big roller coasters.
We bought passes that are good until the end of the
year, so maybe I'll be big enough next time.
Next time I want to ride the Pterodactyl ride. It's a
skyway kind of ride.
Friday, August 11 was meet the teacher
day. Mom, Dad, and I went and met Mrs. Olsen.
Chelsea Hickey is in my class again this year. She joined my
girl scout troop this
year and is in gifted too! We picked the same desk to sit at.
School started on Monday. We get an allowance of $10 each
week from Mrs. Olsen. (Play money) She also gives jobs
that pay $1 and the cleanup jobs pay $2. She takes away money
for talking, misbehaving, not putting your name on papers,
incomplete homework, and stuff like that. You can use your
money to buy things. A sticker costs $5, two pieces of candy
cost $10. For $30 you can eat lunch with the teacher or
another student from a different class. You can save your
money and use it at two auctions during the year.
Mrs. Olsen is nice. We write alot in
4th grade. I go to gifted class every Thursday.
I was selected as Wildcat of the Week the
first week of school!
Back To The Future
Dad wanted to have a Back To The Future movie marathon, so on Friday,
August 18 we watched Back To The Future. It was
a neat movie. I gave it 5 stars. On Saturday we watched part
2 and part 3. I gave part 2 5 stars and part 3 4
On Saturday the 19th I had a sleepover at gymnastics. I met a
new girl who was nice.
On Saturday the 26th we had a party. We invited all
the people that went to Alaska with us, plus Uncle Wood, Great
Grandma Rhodes, Aunt Beth, Trevor, Alexis, and James and
Jody. Mom made salmon and everyone looked at Alaska pictures
and watched videos from Alaska. I entertained Trevor.
The oven baked salmon was better than the grilled salmon.
On Sunday the 27th I went to Chelsa Aasnes birthday
party. It was a pool party at her house. We were in the pool
the whole time. We played hot potato. I had a great time and I
think Chelsa liked my present. She must love Scooby Doo because
everything in her room is Scooby Doo and it was a Scooby Doo
Grandma & Grandpa Weekend
Mom, Dad, James, and Jody went to the UCF vs. Georgia Tech game
in Atlanta the weekend of September 1st. They left on Friday
and dropped me off at Grandma and Grandpas. We went up to Aunt
Beth's house and ate dinner. Uncle Butch was there. Then
we took Trevor back to Grandma's house.
On Saturday morning we went to the Sanford zoo. Grandma
said it was very nicely setup. We saw lots of birds.
Trevor wanted to stay at the monkey cage the whole time. We
saw elephants, and the hippo came out of the water a couple of
times. We had a great time, except Trevor who couldn't find
any of the animals, including the elephants! Then we went to
Steak and Shake and had dinner. Then we went back to Grandma's
house and played games.
On Sunday we went to Don and Mary's to play in their pool.
Then we went to the movies to see "Dinosaurs". Trevor went
too. It was his first movie, but he got scared at the previews
of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" movie, so Grandpa had to leave
Then we went back to Beth's. She made dinner for everyone
and Mom and Dad picked me up there.
