Babysitting Merrick

I babysat Merrick yesterday. I was at the rec center and came home and Merrick greeted me at the door. Merrick learned to walk before he learned to crawl. He can do both now. He liked the toy animals I have. His favorite ones were the lion and the giraffe. He mostly drinks out of a sippy cup not a bottle anymore. He drinks out of a bottle at night. Merrick liked playing my drum. He also liked playing my musical instruments. When Merrick looked at me he said "mama". I think my long hair reminded him of his mom. Here are some pictures.

My Favorite Season

My favorite season is summer because I get to play softball. Softball is awesome because I get to pitch sometimes and I get a chance to hit the ball and sometimes I get a chance to try and catch a ball. I really like softball.

I like playing outside in the summer because it's fun and warm. I like playing with water toys so we can cool down. I also like playing baseball, kickball, riding bikes, riding scooters, playing hide-and-seek, and going for walks. This is why summer is my favorite season.

One of the things that makes me happy is finishing a book because I feel like all my hard work paid off. When I finish a book and get to tell everybody that I finished a book, I feel very proud of myself. I like when I finish a book because I get to put it on my reading log. I like to look back and see how much I have improved over the year. I have noticed that every book I read is harder. This is one of things that makes me happy.

One of the things that makes me feel frustrated is when I make lots of mistakes. When I read and I make a lot of mistakes, I get really frustrated because I want to know all the words. I don't want to ask my mom all the big words. I wish I could figure those out on my own and not ask her for help. Also, writing is frustrating when I leave off the endings of words. Endings are kind of important. When my mom comes to help me edit, lots of my mistakes are the endings of words. I always feel frustrated about making lots of mistakes.
