Weather 

We didn't get any rain AGAIN and I have been complaining, "Where's our rain and hail and all that stuff? How come we're not getting tornadoes and all that stuff?" It's not fair! All those other states get some rain, instead of us, like Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. And by the way, Ohio, because that's in Tornado Alley.

What I want to do is make a movie for the Weather Channel. Then they could show it on TV. They might choose my movie and then I might get a Weather Channel jacket.

I might get a Weather Channel t-shirt on eBay. I just love the Weather Channel a lot. I watch Weather Channel every day.

Prison trip 

Yesterday we got on Bus 18 to take us on our prison trip. The bus driver had to go to her house and change her shoes because they wouldn't let her in prison with sandals. That's their rules.

We started heading towards the rain in the west. Then it started to hail! It was making a lot of noise! It made me feel crazy and wild!

It was still raining when we got to Las Animas. Then we got off Highway 50 and turned, heading towards the prison. The bus driver was trying to figure out where to park.

Inside you have to take your shoes off to walk through the metal detector. Then you can put your shoes back on.

We had to wait for Mrs. O to sign papers and then we went into the room where they talk to you about prison stuff. A guy named Mike (like me! That is weird!) talked first. They took us to the cells where they stay and then after that we went outside a little bit to see their exercise yard. Then we went back in.

The prisoners told us about their life stories so us kids won't have to go to prison. Then we had lunch. After lunch we saw a video where a boy was drinking and driving. It had a sad part in it when he crashed. His girlfriend was bleeding everywhere and they called 911 and the ambulance and the fire truck and the police car but she died. Susan was crying.

Afterwards we headed back to good old Lamar, Colorado.

Back at school they called me out of class for a meeting. It was about high school stuff. I picked some classes I wanted to take, like Art and Wood and Word Processing. That's tasty! I will also have Math and PE. I like PE a lot. My best friend Greg is going to high school too next year, with me. We are being best buds.

I am a little nervous about high school next year. Sometimes I am worried about the bigger kids because sometimes what they do is tease and be a bully. I don't like it, not one little bit.

Susan and I got our hair cut today. Greg might be freaked out by my hair tomorrow!

Tornado Project 



This is a picture of my tornado project. It tells about how we went to Weather Spotter training and all about tornadoes. Like the scale with EF1, EF2, EF3, EF4 and EF5, which is very evil.



Here I am making a tornado in the bottle to show the judges.

Project Fair is so much fun! I brought home a trophy! AND you get to play games at the Project Fair. Greg was there with me at the Project Fair because our whole class went. We had lunch there too. They had pizza!

Yesterday at school I got frightened because we had a bomb threat! I don't know why people do something stupid like that. They think it's a joke but it's not! We were in the middle of doing art class and suddenly they had to tell us to walk towards the school field. I was scared. I saw the police cars directing traffic away to make them go around. Then Susan came to pick me up from school.

Before we went home, we went to go get some sand from the side of the road. It's for our rock garden. We had a bin and filled it halfway up. It was SO HEAVY we almost couldn't get it! I put it in the garden later on. I want to work on it some more today, but it's really windy, because we are supposed to get thunderstorms.

I am so excited because we got a BIG TV controller yesterday. The keys glow in the dark! It lets me play the VCR and change channels and it's VERY big so you can't lose it! I will show you a picture of me and the big controller after Susan gets a chance to take a picture of it.

Project fair! 

Today I brought home volcanoes! It's made of paper. First you need bottles, and paper that you rip up and make into a ball. Next thing you need to do it get some flour and water and put your finger in it and mix it. It feels weird!

We made it on cardboard in science class. My friends and I made two volcanoes and a lake (that was my idea) and a fence. The bottles are inside the volcanoes. I didn't get a chance to see it erupt because I was gone on Tuesday. I went to Denver with my Grandma GG because she is visiting us.

We left early Tuesday morning at 8 o'clock. We picked my cousin Jeff up in Denver and then we went to Brush, after we finally found Highway 76. Then we visited my sister Damaris and her husband Nigel and their kids. I was playing with Spira the dragon and Zach was helping me to beat that Nasty Norf the bad guy. Then we went home the next day.

On Thursday is our Project Fair. I am doing a report on tornadoes because I chose Science this year. Every year I do something different. I wrote a report about tornadoes of things I learned from Weather Spotter training. We put it on poster board with pictures of tornadoes and stuff. I am trying to make a tornado in a bottle too.

I have to go to bed now.

SNOW! 

It started out at midnight. The snow started coming down. When I got up, there was snow everywhere, including on our vehicles. We were listening to the radio to make sure if school was open or closed. Someone fooled them! They called the radio station and said there was no school!

But then someone REALLY from the school called. Yes, there WAS school. And I said, "TARTAR SAUCE!"

So I went to school like I always do. It was still snowing the whole morning. Because of all the snow they released the students early at noon. They wanted the students to be home before it got really worse. We had Social Studies for only like five minutes.

We made pizza in second hour, me and my friend Greg. He's a really nice boy. He is new.

I have been so busy buzzing around like a bee or a wasp. (That's just a joke.) I will try to write more often if I can. You can try to say something back to me. Thank you.
