Granny Is The Best





Tuesday I got to go to Bunny park with my granny. She is my favorite person ever. She even helped me with my science video. It was the best day of summer. You can see the video on the Science is Fun page.

Boys of Summer!

Summer is about baseball. Our favorite team (The Twins) aren't doing real good right now but they have great players. All my cousins are really good at baseball but it's hard for me. I got to go to the batting cages a while ago and this weekend I got my own bat. It's purple like mom's favorite color. Now I can practice at the park and maybe get good at sports.

The Park Pack!

I haven't posted in a few days but we have been really busy. I finished the education.com challenge. I went to the library. We have been to the park and for walks at the plaza. I will post pictures and videos when they are ready. This last weekend we made the coolest summer invention, thought up by my mom. The park pack. It has all of the toys and balls we use at the park plus water bottles and a picnic blanket because we can put food in there too. It makes it easy to carry everything like if I am done with my scooter and I want to play football.

Summer Is Swimming!


The best part of summer is swimming. I have lots of fun. This summer I can swim under water with my eyes open and I can jump and touch the bottom of the deep end. It's best when my whole family swims. Sometimes mom or dad can't swim but they still want to spend time with me outside. Like when my dad does his homework while mom and I swim or sometimes mom does her online job.

Mom takes great pictures of me jumping

Bunnies Up Close!

The bunnies are beginning to trust us. They let me lay really close to them and take pictures yesterday. The other kids and the dogs still make them run though. And the babies are still really scared of everything. It is really hard to be still and quiet!

School's Out!



Today was my last live lesson of the school year. It was fun because we got to see what everyone is doing this summer. The book suggestions were neat too. Everyone picked such great books. I would like to read them all but I won't be able to.  I asked mom to read the magic treehouse stories to me she said she would. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one who thinks reading and writing is hard but lots of kids in my class feel the same way. I will read all my reading list books this summer no matter how hard it is. 

School isn't really over until friday but I am all finished with my lessons. This year was more fun than last year and next year I get to learn Spanish and join robotics club. I can't wait for that. Robotics and engineering is my most favorite things in the world. 

My favorite thing we did this year was going to the La Brea Tar Pits. That was just awesome! We could touch fossils and watch the scientists cleaning and studying them in their lab. There was tar bubbling up all the park. For a souvenir I got a mammoth skeleton that I have to excavate and put together. I am going to finish it this summer. Here are some pictures from our field trip.




My dad is so awesome!
I can imagine that being stuck in tar would be scary
Some of the pits had big bubbles of gas











This picture I took and the flowers were printed in the school magazine.


Now that is a huge teddy bear!
Here are the rest of the pictures mom and I took there

Yummy!

Last night and today Dad and  I  helped mom sample products for a website. We had loads of fun. She is always getting free samples and free stuff and dad and me get to help her try it out. Over Easter we got to be in a video for potatoes. We have also done videos for water flavors, veggies and cinnamon rolls. I like it because I can be as silly as I want. 
This time we tried frozen yogurt and we really enjoyed it.




Free stuff is awesome!



The name should have told us they were supposed to be eaten together
like a collision but at first we made them separate.
I liked them better that way

I have a little bit on my face

Dad and Mom liked them lots too but it's hard to get mom in a picture.

That's good stuff!

Water Wise!



Today we visited a water wise garden. This is a garden where the plants need little or no watering to survive. They get most of what they need from the rainfall. That is so cool because it doesn't rain very often. I thought it would be like a rock garden but it was green and pretty and even had a fountain. My favorite plants were the Blanket Flowers. They look  a field of pinkish butterflies. Some other kinds of plants are Kangaroo Paw, English Lavender, Rosemary and Giant Feather Grass. I thought that would look like giant feathers It just looks like tall fluffy grass.


















Reading List

Reading is not easy for me. I really don't like doing it. I promised my teacher I would read every day during the summer just to practice. I will post my books here. I would love to hear what everyone else is reading.

My first book was Beezus and Ramona.  I started it before school was over.





It is a story about a four year girl who is bratty and ruins her older sister's life. She does things like throws a party with worm cookies. But she doesn't tell anyone she is doing it until her friends get there. She also messed up two of her sister's birthday cakes and locked the dog in the bathroom. Her sister, Beezus starts to hate her and feels bad. Her aunt tells her it's okay to feel like that sometimes.

Library Fun!

The library by my granny's house is awesome! We went there so dad could do some research.





It is a big building that looks more like a college or a museum.



 


There is a big fish tank with really colorful fish. There are statues and big glass cases. 










The children's room is painted different on every wall.

 


 Part looks like mountains 
and there is a waterfall.

Another corner looks like it's under water. 





There are benches that 
look like boxes of
 lemons on a lemon farm.
 














The reading area looks like a book shelf with books. I found Waldo easily in the big picture on one wall. 


 There was so much to see I almost forgot to read. We did read though. I read a small book to mom and then we played I Spy. I really like those books. This library is having lots of fun things this summer like movies and magicians. I always love to go the library but that makes it more fun.


It was so cool! I can't wait to go again

Touch Football!


I love to play sports. I am not very good at most of them but they are still fun. At Bunny Park today mom and I played catch while we waited for the rabbits to come out. There were lots of little ones to day.  We didn't get to watch them much because there were too many dogs off their leashes. The babies are really scared of the dogs. Even Braveheart didn't come out. We could see them at the entrances to their bush tunnels. They didn't come on to the grass very often.



Playing with mom is fun. We both throw like a girl. 
It is okay for her because she is a girl.




Dad played too after he jogged around the track for a while. Then we played football so mom could take some pictures. I won.



That was awesome fun! 
Summer is already such a blast.
