Magical Day!

I had lots of fun at Hogwarts!!!
This is me in the rose arbor.
Here I am getting ready to go in. They put the
witches hat on our head and it told us which house
we would be in. I was put in Hufflepuff.
We had different classes to attend. My first
class was making magic charms, then Fortune Telling
class, then we played Quidditch. Which was so much fun!
We had lunch and my mom had made me pretzel rod wands.
(chocolate cover pretzel rods with ghost sprinkles.)
Then we went to potions class with Professor Snapes and then Defence Against the Dark Arts.

Here's the Hogwarts drinking fountain but....you should be careful with what come out of there! We finish of the day with the house cup ceremony.

Then we had some butter beer! Yummy!!!!! (cream soda)

Native Pride

My new hat from the Pow Wow.
I love the back!
This is a awesome Native bike!
Here's the snake in the box that I bought.
When you slide the door open a snake pops out
and pokes your finger with his pokey tongue. It scares people.
Harpo wanted to attack the snake!

Celebrating the Summer Solstice

We headed downtown to the Pow Wow because
mom wanted some sage to burn tonight at our celebration.
These street corner mimes were very interesting to me.
They did some strange things!
There weren't any dancers today.
Tomorrow and Sunday there will be.
All of the vendors were open and it's not crowded.
Mom bought her sage and a smudging bowl.
Dad got a new walking stick and I got a wood box with a
snake that pops out and scares you!!!!

Sparklers... I'm not afraid of them anymore!

We toasted to summer, ate pie, caught fireflies and talked.

Dad and I chose cherry pie but mom can't have any. She had a glass of wine. We had fun until mom made us go in because the bats started flying over our heads! That's summer for you!

My Best Friend Larkin

This is my dog Larkin. I've had him since I
was a baby. We got him from the animal shelter.
We had him for eight years and he was eleven
years old when he died last September.
We were best friends, he was my #1 best friend.
He used to bug me for bones all the time. But
I kind of miss that. He always protected me.
If I was sword playing with my friends,
Larkin would get in the middle and push me away.
He could spell! Do you want a B-O-N-E?
He would get all excited and run to the cupboard.
He always knew when we were getting ready
for a walk. He loved to go for walks!
He didn't like thunder or fire works.

He really didn't wear glasses! He liked to go
for rides in the van.
He really loved kittens and always wanted
to be near them. Bella and Boo loved Larkin
and he loved them.
He is a good soul, and I know he is still with me.
Larkin 1996-2007

Devil's Toenails

A package from Sharon came today.
Four really cool fossils called devil's toenails.
Mom and I looked them up on the Internet.
I'm going to do some studing on fossils.

My grandma wants one because we read that
they help arthritis. I told her "Sorry grandma,
but it's just folk lore."

They look awesome in my dinotopia!

I also got a picture of Zoe's cool winged dragon. It's awesome!
Thanks Sharon and Zoe! I'm really excited to have 167 million year old fossils!!!

Bob

Meet Bob,...our family rescued Bob from the
streets. His owner moved away and left him.
We took him in, took him to the vet and found
him a good home with Kevin, my sister's boyfriend.
He's a sweet kitty!

Rescued Cat
Once I was a lonely cat, just looking for a home.
I had no place to go, no one to call my own.
I wandered up and down the streets, in rain in heat and snow.
I ate what ever I could find, I was always on the go.
My skin would itch, my feet were sore, my body ached with pain.
And no one stopped to give a pat, or gently say my name.
I never saw a loving glance, I was always on the run.
For people thought that hurting me was really lots of fun.
Then one day I heard a voice so gentle, kind and sweet,
And arms so soft reached down to me and took me off my feet.
"No one again will hurt you,"was whispered in my ear.
"You'll have a home to call your own where you will know no fear."
"You will be dry, you will be warm, you'll have enough to eat,"
"and rest assured that when you sleep,
your dreams will all be sweet."I was afraid I must admit,
I've lived so long in fear. I can't remember when I let a human come so near.
And as she tended to my wounds,
and bathed and brushed my fur.
She told me about the rescue group
and what it meant to her.
She said, "We are a circle, a line that never ends."
"And in the center there is you protected by new friends."

Dinotopia

I used to have two goldfish, but my mom
accidentally killed them.
So my mom made me a dinosaur terrarium.

It looks cool with the light on! We put in my
crystals that I bought when we visited my
Aunt Debi.

We found the plants and the moss in our yard.
I call it Dinotopia. ROAR!

P.S. My mom can't kill the dinosaurs their plastic!

ART

This is the art gallery in our hallway.
Some of the art I made in art class.
These are all my pieces of art.
Black Cat.
Nutcracker.

The owl and the Santa duck is Calebs, when he was little and
the house with the tree is Autumns, when
she was little. The rest are mine!
