Sometimes school is hard

I'm learning division right now. It's hard - even harder than multiplication! I'm also getting extra science. Some in the morning with my mom, some with my class. I read about Hawk Mountain and woodpeckers today.

I get to read a lot too. I really like fantasy fiction. Last time I was at the library, the librarian showed me how to find the ones with stickers on the spine that have a spaceship or unicorn on them. My mom says that was her favorite kind of book when she was younger, and she loves to read my books to make sure I'll like them.

Gifts that Help Others

I'm making things again this year to sell to raise money. Last year I donated to World Vision to help girls around the world go to school. I raised over $150. This year the money is going to special needs children and adults through Lutheran Special Education Ministries and the PACER Center. Here are some of the things I currently have. I can do requests too, but I don't have clay for charms anymore. You may donate as much or as little as you like, but please remember that I need to pay to mail them too. If you live far away, you can mail a check, or use PayPal. Email my mom at for details.

Charms: cat, octopus, dog, pig, purple donut (Kjirsten made that), hamburger, s'more, sprinkle donut, hot dog, fries, cinnamon roll, carrot cake muffin

More bracelets

Decorative potholders on the left (Kjirsten helped with the top one), purses and pencil holders on the right

Happy birthday Kjirsten!

Kjirsten's birthday was last week. It was fun to see my grandparents on Sunday. Then I got to see them again for Grandparents' Day on Wednesday. I did bowling with them, and showed them my classroom where I do school when it's not with my mom. Then I saw my mom's aunt and uncle Thursday and Friday and Oma and Opa again on Friday. Tomorrow I get to see them again! Lots of family time!

Baptism Anniversary!

We celebrated my Baptism anniversary on Tuesday. My mom made a cake, and tried to make marshmallow fondant. It was yummy, but she didn't take a picture because she thought it turned out funny. She said the dove looked like a squirrel. I decorated the living room with my favorite flower blanket and we had an indoor picnic for dessert!
