August 31, 2007 - Taking Care of Scruffy

This is the weekend that I’m taking care of Scruffy. He gets to sleep in my bedroom. But first he has to be in the kennel – not all the time, but most of the time he’s in my room. Scruffy went to doggy day care today and then he gets to stay home on the weekend. He got a bath and something like a doggy ice cream treat. He didn’t like the hair dryer so he felt a little damp when I got home.

Here’s a picture of him in my room in his kennel.

Here is Scruffy in the yard.

Scruffy says, "Hi Cami. Hi Sawyer."

August 27, 2007 - A Class Fish

Ms. Hanni got our class a fish over the weekend. We named him Fire Tiger Flower because we did a human graph. Fire had the most, which was 9. And then Tiger was 3. Then Flower was 2. The fish is reddish-orangish. His fins look like fire because they’re like floppy. William is our fish feeder, but we’re only supposed to give him a little bit of food each day. William is going to be the fish feeder for one week and then somebody else is going to be the fish feeder for the next week.

August 26, 2007 - Things I Like To Do In My Neighborhood

I made this picture of me and my friends playing because I really like to play with friends. This picture wasn’t an ordinary picture because those were things I like to do in my neighborhood. It was an assignment from my teacher (Ms. Hanni) and she hung it up by our cubbies in the hallway.

August 25, 2007 - Self Portrait

Here is my self-portrait. Even though I know my face isn’t gray and my teeth aren’t yellow, I just like to draw that way. This was also an assignment, too, and Ms. Hanni hung it up in the classroom.

I have my own toolkit in math. It is where I keep my supplies for math. There’s only three things in it right now. There’s my coins, my stencil thingies, and a clock. I use it for math to help me do my second grade math journal.

Math was about clocks today. Ms. Hanni did it on her clock and we did it on our clock. They are not real clocks, they are play clocks. We were practicing telling time. We had to try to figure out how to put the big hand and the little hand and if she nodded her head you got it right, and if she didn’t nod her head you got it wrong. Let’s say she says “eight-oh-five” and the kids have to do it on our clocks.

August 4, 2007

I’ve got a blood blister. I went to the doctor and we have to put special cream on it and take medicine three times a day and soak my foot. I think I got it because of my shoe rubbing and it really hurt so I had to put an ice pack on it but that didn’t help – nothing helped. The purple marker in the picture is around the edge of where the swelling was.

On Thursday I went in the air castle in Camelot – Camelot is my daycare. We couldn’t do tricks in the air castle and only five kids at a time could be in the air castle. We just jumped and played corner crashing.

I met my teacher on Thursday and her name is Ms. Hanni. This was a conference for me to get to know Ms. Hanni and some other kids. I had to find my supplies – it was kind of like a scavenger hunt, and I had to draw a picture of what I like to do in my neighborhood. Ms. Hanni read us a book about crayons. The crayons were being mean to each other and weren’t being nice. But then all the colors started to like each other and said that if they couldn’t work together we couldn’t do a very good job. That’s like being crew, not passengers.

My school starts on Monday and I feel good about it.
