I am now in fourth grade an am taking up the trumpet. It took a lot of thinking but I finally decided on the trumpet. My other options were the viola, violin, or trombone. I chose the trumpet because 3 of my friends are doing it and because I figured out how to play a song before I even got my instrument. We don't start practice until the twentieth, but I practiced anyway. And I got my instrument two weeks early, so I have to wait a while before practicing with other people. The strings teacher said you should chose an instrument you like the sound of. So if you don't like the loud sound that trumpets, trombones, or the tuba make you shouldn't play it. I play guitar so I have experience with strings but I didn't want to do a strings instrument. So I chose something different then I normally do. I also like making music and cooking. Those are two things where I get to make stuff. That's it. :-)

Stuff with Jake last Night

             Jake likes to go on walks. He loves to play tug of war too. Yesterday two other family's came over for dinner. There were two boys around my age. One played Lego Star Wars with my brother. And one played with Jake and I. We played Tug of War, we tried to see how well Jake could find three treats, and we played kind of a keep away from Jake. Here's how we played, one person had Jake's toy and tried to not let Jake get it, if he did they would play tug of war then pass it to the other. It was fun and Jake loved all the attention he was getting. And I tried lifting Jake of the ground by his toy.  That's some fun stuff with Jake. Toodles. :3

Despicable Me 2

 Despicable Me 2 was a funny family movie. The begining was funny when Agent Wild heaved him in her trunk. I think a part that was good on the directors part was the fact it was underwater. I think the minions were awesome singers. The end was beautiful. Agnes was adorable at the end. I like how Gru didn't like that Margo liked a boy, and he kept blaming El Wardo because of his son and Margo. It was a really great movie in all. I would tell you more but I don't want to spoil the movie for you. =D                          

A furry or fluffy friend

       Are you normally lonely? Or need someone to talk to? Sometimes if you try talking to another human you get no where. But, If you talk to  a stuffed animal or pet they won't answer (unless your pet can talk.) Stuffed animals can't leave you they won't bark at you while you're talking. Stuffed animals are good to give a tight hug to. You could also ask your parents for a pet that makes no noise, like a fish or guinea pig, hamster, something you can hold. Anyway I'm always here. See you soon. <;D

So Much To Do

     At the begining of this month I took up guitar. It was easy learning to play, Old MacDonald, and Yankee Doodle, but now it's getting harder. I've been learning parts of, Oye Coma Ve, by Carlo Santana. This year I'm also doing two other instruments, the piano, and one for school but I haven't decided yet. I'm leaning towards the violin. And then I have to practice basketball, tennis and soccer, and piano + guitar.  I also have to give time to Jake. To much to do. ;0

We Missed Our Stop

                  One time in August my cousins grandma aunt uncle and siblings and i went on a train to old sacramento. It was my cousins first time but my second. We went too a train museum and got ice cream. When we were on the train back from sacramento the train doors didn't open. We all panicked. My grandma had wished for her to be able to stay and it did, my younger cousin was saying "oh no oh no." We ended up going to Richmond. I'd been trying too get my twin three year old cousins to notice me. I finally did it. I communicated with them, finally. One of them carries around a stuffed cat, I cat-talked with him. Then on our second train one of them snuck under the table and sat next to me. Then when we moved down and they both sat next to me. We eventually got home, I was so excited, that I was almost as bummed when they left as I was excited they came.


               If you like cooking you should keep cooking if you don't you should try it. Cooking's fun. I like making anything with dough. Like brownies, cookies, pancakes. Cooking is really fun. You can experiment with different things, or make one thing another thing. Experiment with things.                                                                       Here is a delicious brownie recipe.
