This week, soccer started. I have a new coach and some new team mates. We have only had three practices, but I think I will really like him.
If you would like to come to one of my games, this is my schedule for this season. The bold games are home games.

(Wow, this is the first year, in at least three years, that no game is scheduled on Mother’s Day! Surprise!)
IÂ learned how to kayak. One of our friends invited us to go kayaking with her and her grandpa. Â It was kind of like canoeing. It was lots of fun.
I learned how toÂ cureÂ alpaca fiber. Â I had fun experimenting. Now I wantÂ to learn how to put sparklesÂ in the fiber.
You will need:
- 4 cup water
- 1 tsp citric acid
- 2 1/2 cup washedÂ fiber
- 1 pkg kool-aid (or more depending on color)
Steam water (don’t boil!), pour inÂ kool-aid and citric acidÂ andÂ stir. Place fiber in push downÂ and simmer for 30 min or till water is clear.Â Strain, DO NOT PUSH DOWN!– you do not want to felt it. Let dry on rack.

We are having a gorp making contest. Gorp stands for Good Old Raisins and Peanuts.Â But you can use any dried fruits and nuts that you want.Â The rules were we had to make up our own recipe, or improve an existing one.Â We also had to have the ingredients in the house.Â What would you put in your gorp? Which entryÂ do you think would be the best?
