The video of us doing maple syrup is here! I am not sure how long it will be up though. If you go to the link and it does not play the video, click on the camera picture to watch.
Momma talked about school and how making syrup helps us be responsible. Then Mark talked how we make maple syrup.
She took some videos of the sap dripping into the buckets. We also drilled a hole in a tree and she made a video of that. She took a video of me carrying wood to cook the sap and of me pouring some syrup on a stack of four pancakes. She wanted the picture of the syrup being poured on the pancakes. Then we ate pancakes with maple syrup!
I don’t know if I would want her job. I feel uncomfortable talking to people that I don’t know.Â I would like driving places and learning different things. She said she spent most of her time on the computer editing stuff. I wouldn’t like that job. But, I liked learning a little about how she does it. It was a good school day!
I wanted a scooter. When I was at the Sellers I practiced on one and liked it. I wanted a scooter after that.
Yesterday while we were going to Science Sleuths, there was this big sign saying “Free”.Â There were two scooters; one three wheeler and one two wheeler.Â The two wheeler had blue duct tape, the other one is all fixed okay and it has spider man. But Momma said “it’s okay”. It is smaller so Adrian can ride easy.
There were two chairs. One had hearts and the other didn’t. Momma told us we could pick them up if we wanted them.Â So we went and got them. Daddy said they are nice oak chairs.
Hooray! God answered our prayers by making our scooters free! It was a nice surprise.
Today we learned that the butterflies we made were sent to Ocampo, Michoacan, Mexico. They are overwintering in “Emiliano Zapato” Elementary School with a class of second graders.
Today was the first snow that we could play in.Â I made a snowman.Â Then when Momma came out to take a picture, it had fallen.Â I made another one.Â We used M&M’s for the eyes.Â The hat is my doll’s hat.
I hope for more play snow soon.
P.S.Â Adrian keeps calling the snowman “Frosty”.
Today I got to “throw away” my car seat because I am eight!

Today I got some flowers from Opa!Â They are for my birthday!Â Some of them are white.Â They are called Baby Breath.Â There are some pink carnations and some purple.Â We don’t know what the purple ones are.
I like them.Â They are pretty, pretty, pretty!
Thank you Opa and Oma!
We made Cowgirl Cookies for my birthday tomorrow.Â They are GOOD!
Tomorrow is going to be so much fun!Â Daddy is gone, butÂ he promised me an ice cream date when he gets back.
P.S.Â These pictures are of fighting the Scout Wars.Â They were trying to defend the Golden Beads.Â Â Princess Renee made Daddy his special shied for safety.Â Princess Sarah and Prince Caspian went along to help protect him.Â Prince Mark made it half way and diedÂ ):Â defending the Golden Beads.Â He got hit by a water balloon.
Wednesday night was Awards Night.Â I got a ribbon.Â I earned it by saying my verse every Wednesday night, doing quiet time, extra credit, bringing my Bible and my notebook and by being there!Â Mark got a gold medal because he is older.
The last Wednesday night of the year (school quarter) is Awards Night.Â I got first place for first grade and first place for first and second grade (for this semester).Â Â Mark earned a reward to (for this semester).
My favorite verse for this year is John 3:16.Â For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotton son that whoever believes in him will have eternal life.
