Resources All Around US

Earth is filled with natural we use every day. If you open the faucet, water pours. Because it opens a plug that is holding water behind it. The water comes from the water towers. You can burn oil in the furnace to stay warm. If you plant a flower in some soil, it is helping the earth. Without water we can't survive. Without water, animals die. Soil helps provide things we need like vegetables. Oil is buried deep in the ground.

My Rhyming Chant

There was a little eagle sitting in a tree.
He cheered for Third grade students and got stung by a bee.
He flew so very high and bumped his little head.
He fell to the little ground and when he got back up again, this is what he said
Start, start, start, start
you might eagles
Fight, fight, fight, fight
you mighty eagles
Win, win, win, win
you mighty eagles
Start, start, start, fight, fight, fight, win, win, win!

The whole summer

My mom has been so excited lately, because 2 people want to buy our house at the same time. And 2 more people are coming to look tomorrow to see if they want to buy the house. She thinks they will make an offer, so she shakes me every time she gets so excited. I also like playing the Wii. But here's what I don't like about it. Before I can play the wii, I have to do the "Dutch game' (rosetta stone), which is so boring, because all you have to do is click the right answers and say things in Dutch. Here's the worst thing; sometimes I say things right, but they think I'm wrong. But I'm really not. I'm doing great at it. After I play the Dutch game, I'm allowed to play Wii. We have charts to say how many minutes we have. Right now, I don't have too many minutes. I've almost finished my chart.

This summer we went to the waterpark, Hawaiian Falls, lots of times. Sometimes we invite Riley, Bailee, Brooks, Tucker, and Tracey (Sparks) of course over with us. Some of the rides I did were the "Pineapple Express". It's like this thing where you lay on this mat and hold on to a handle bar. Then, when the lifeguard says "go", you push yourself off, and you go down in a race. Whoever goes furthest, wins. Another thing I like, which is not really a ride, is the lazy river. There are floaties, where you can go down the river, and you can go out whenever you want. Something that Tracey was scared of, was not so scary for me. It's called the Torpedo. The floor drops out from under your feet, and you fall down this big slide. Those are some of the rides I like the best at Hawaiian Falls.

I got a quilt for Christmas that you have to put together. I'm still working on it. It's crazy, because I've been working on it a lot, and I'm still not finished. It has all sorts of colors you can use. You have to knot them together. The colors are: purple, blue, pink, green, orange, and yellow.

Whenever my mom takes care of great grandma, we get to sleep over at her house. And when we sell our house, we allowed to stay with grandma for the rest of the year, until we go to Holland. We're gonna do some redecorating of her kitchen and her living room. My mom says I can help with the wallpaper, but she says I have to ask grandma if I'm allowed to do the painting. Most of the time grandma isn't home, but we get to see her in the morning and at nighttime when we have dinner. She goes to work, that's why she can't be there in the daytime.

Great grandma has a sewing machine. Sometimes she helps me help make quilts, because she makes quilts for her great grandchildren. She made one for me too
I go to poetry class once a week at the library. But not all the time, because sometimes my mom doesn't want to drive to Allen. Some of the books mom picked out from the library this week, were kind of long, but I think they're going to be very interesting. Some of my favorite books are: "just Grace", "Diary of a wimpy kid", "the dragon tree", "the witches".

The Kitty and the Pie

Once there was a cat. She wanted to have a party at her house. She was going to make an apple pie, but she didn't know what an apple was. So she got what she thought was an apple, but it was actually hamburger. She got a mixing bowl, and a mixer. For the crust, she added baking powder, salt, milk, and yeast. She kneaded it into a pot, and put it in the oven. She accidentally forgot to add flour, so she took it back out of the oven after a minute, and stirred in the flour. After the crust was done, she put in the "apple" hamburger filling.

Her friends came over, and before dinner, they played wizard chess and swam in the pool. The cat heard the timer go off, and called everyone in for pie. When her friends sat down, the dog noticed that the pie smelled different. This was a weird dog, he didn't like meat! He took off the top crust, and saw that it wasn't apple pie, but hamburger pie. He said: "I don't want to hurt your feelings, cat, but I don't think this is apple pie. I think you put in the wrong ingredient. You put in hamburger, instead of apples". The cat was confused and insisted that she put in the right thing. But she promised to ask someone for help next time when buying ingredients.

Dinosaur adventures

Once there was a dinosaur, who lived on a beautiful island. The island had plants with cherries and the trees were filled with apples. The dinosaur lived in cave that was like a tunnel. He lived there with lots of bats. One day he decided to explore the cave. He got his flashlight, and went on an adventure through the tunnel. Deep into the cave, he saw a door. He tried to get in, but it was locked. So he went even further into the cave. It got colder with every step he took. All of a sudden he bumped into a big rock, that had a key on top of it. He wondered if it would open the door, so he grabbed the key, and ran back to the door. He used the key, and it did unlock the door. When he opened it, he was very surprised to see....... you'll have to wait until next week to find out!

Once there was a little girl named Bella. She was playing in the snow and she was wearing mittens. While she was playing, her mittens fell off her hands. Then something mysterious happened to the mittens. They came alive! They ran away quickly, up a tree. When they got to the top, they saw a caterpillar. He was a very friendly caterpillar. The mittens asked him how to get to the junkyard. He told them the way. So the mittens went the way the caterpillar had told them, but ended up in someone elses house. So they went back outside, and walked to New York City. They saw many things like the statue of liberty and Chinatown. They went into a restaurant in Chinatown, where they ate a hot tamale and noodles. When they were full, they went back to the little girl. Then, they were not alive anymore!

My Baptism

I was Baptized on January 2nd, in the Wylie 2nd ward. I wanted to get baptized with my friend and 2nd cousin Lille. She's like my sister. Aunt Barbara and Uncle Bill were there. Matt and aunt Katy Morphis were there too. Grace was also there.
The dress that I got baptized in, is a nightgown that my mom made for me. The other white dress that I wore before and after I got baptized, had a stripe of colors. My grandma got that dress for me.
For the service, we were in the chapel. Great grandma Helen, grandma Ashurst, and Uncle Bill Benac talked at the microphone (actually not Liz, she directed the music). They talked about what we were going to do after we got baptized. That we should be nice, and help others. We should be nice to our enemies, and help them do things like; if they don't know math, we can help them with it, and how to do it. Aunt Barbara played the piano.
All my cousins that were there went up on the stage, to sing a song. "When Jesus Christ was baptized". That's what we all sang. Some other people talked (the bishop), and then I got baptized.

I got baptized in a tub of water. Dad said the prayer, and then he pushed my hand, and I bent my legs. Then he dunked me under and pulled me back up. I had to dunk under water 3 times, because my dad messed up on the prayer. Then I said to my mom: "But now I am a member of Lille's church!!
After I got baptized, it was Lille's turn to get baptized. She slid unto the floor, and stayed straight as a board. Then she got out, and we went back into the chapel. We sang some songs. Some men put their hands on my head, and I was confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus (what is our church called????) ...

My favorite part was when he dunked me under, because the water was warm, and it felt good. Now that I am baptized, I can return to Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father when I grow old.

My Testimony:
I know this Church is true. Joseph Smith was a true prophet. Gordon B Hinckley was also a prophet. Everybody can be baptized when they're 8, or older. We can all return to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, if we obey His commandments. We should all read our scriptures every morning and night that we can.

In the name of Jesus Christ Amen
