Guess what! We have a CAT! It came into our yard and Stranger, our dog, attacked it. Well, mom felt sorry for it (she also thought it was cute) so she let it in, and it has been here ever since. Mom said that if it isn't someone else's, and if we take care of it, we can keep it. I named her Willow but then I changed it to Meadow. She is a grey-striped cat. She is really nice but doesn't like being held all the time. She has been here a total of two days and I already love her.

50 Bugs

I finely collected 50 bugs!(Amazing huh?) I am so relived that
I don't ever have to kill a butterfly again.
My favorite bug of all has to be the Luna Moth.
We caught it about three years ago at gymnastics.
We kept it for a while and then we brought it to Florida.
Sometime in between this it had laid eggs.
It soon died leaving eggs in Tennessee and in Florida.
We left its body in the hands of our friend,s Casey and Chloe.
The eggs all hatched in Florida but not here.
( What's with that!)
And when we told them that we needed bugs, well,
they sent back the Luna Moth.
I'm so glad that I have friends like them.

A while ago I wrote a poem.
I showed it to mom and she typed, framed, and decorated it.
It was called
Snowflake Ballet.
This is how it went.

Snowflake Ballet

Snowflakes fly
Snowflakes play
Snowflakes dance a snow ballet.
With dresses of ice
And shoes of glass
They twirl, thy flutter,
The dance all day.
Snowflakes fly
Snowflakes play
Snowflakes dance a snow ballet.

art center

This is my art center.
I can hang up my pictures
and most importantly,
I can find stuff.
I love it.
I think that Kenzie (my niece) does to.
It's a LITTLE messier now than it was then BUT it definitely helps!
It is so easy to find stuff now.
Well gotta go!


This summer mom took me to MK's house so we could play. We played for a while and then MK decided to show me her favorite tree. We went and climbed the tree. All of a sudden, there were Yellow Jackets all over my feat! It scared me really bad and I started to cry. Then a Yellow Jacket climbed in my shoe. You bet I kicked that shoe off!

After that I said, "MK get out and get your mom!" She climbed out a really skinny branch and ran to get her mom. During this episode, I prayed and prayed and prayed. When her mom got there she said for me to climb out of the tree.

When I was finally out I was shaking like a leaf in the wind. The best thing was that not one of those Yellow Jackets stung me. I am positive that my prayers saved me. MK's mom thought for sure that I would have to go to the hospital.

I am so thankful that God protected me. Since then I am terribly afraid of any thing with a stinger.

Recently my mom took me to MK's house for riding lessons.
So I went with Miss Loletta to go get Lincoln.

After that, I brushed Lincoln and
then Miss Loletta saddled him.

I led Lincoln down to the round pen, and
Miss Loletta taught me some things,
then onto Lincoln's back I went.
After I got the feel of it, I did pretty good.
It felt so nice to be on a horse again.

When it was over, we took Lincoln
and put him in the pasture.
It was a wonderful way to end the day.

Earlier that day mom found their baby
with a feed bag around her neck.
Their baby is the cutest baby I've ever seen.


For science we have to collect 50 bugs.
That's a lot of bugs!

I recently read Girl of Limberlost.
It is a great book about a girl, Elnora,
who catches moths for a living.
Now mom is always calling me Elnora.

I really don't like pinning bugs but it has to be done.
I just hope I can get 50 bugs.
Well, we'll see.

My Indian friends enjoy reading also.

The other one really did disappear.
We have no idea where she went!

Look! A lemon boat!

Wow! I have a blog!

My mom helped me set up my blog today. It is going to be a place for me to share what's going on in my life and my creative projects. Also, I'll have an opportunity to practice my typing and computer skills. I have tons of things to scan and post, but for tonight I must be satisfied with a few pictures! Below is a photograph I took of a jellyfish at the aquarium. I think it's kind of cool!

Below is a picture of me as a flower fairy. My mom just finished that today!
