St Francis

Here’s a picture of my favourite saint, St. Francis. I really like him because he likes animals like me.

Me and my sisters are doing a writing project called Mooville. It’s a writing course. Today we did the first assignment which was to create a character for a story we are doing in the other assignments. For our character we made it about a funny pig. I made it not not realistic because in the story my pig is 5000 years old and is a police pig! And also she loves to chase bad guys and walk them with her cane. 

Her name is Granny! And her best friend is called Grandpa Rooster. The writing course is helpful because it asks you a bunch of questions to help you make your character. Another question was what’s her favourite food. We thought it would be funny to say “mud soup with corn in it.” 

This writing course is helpful if you struggle with writing stories. It makes you go step by step to plan out your story. When all of us are done we are going to have fun eating popcorn and reading our stories to each other.

A happy feeling is something

that grows inside your heart.


It doesn’t come from a cupcake, a candy or a tart–

it comes from the soft summer breeze

blowing through your hair,

or a happy little feeling

of the smooth winter air.


No matter where you are,

there will be happiness on each side–

look around right now

and you’ll see there’s a lot to provide!

Our Garden

One of our fun projects this year is making our garden. It is growing very well. These are some of the things we planted: corn, potatoes, water melon, zucchini and lots more. The zucchini is growing very, very well. Here are some pictures of our garden:



The big picture is the zucchini. Underneath it are the watermelon, potatoes, and roses. Our grandpa helped build the raised garden beds. He got really good soil to go in it but it was stinky from cow manure.  It took a long time to scoop up all the soil to fill the beds. My little brother likes watering the garden every morning. My big sister made a little fairy garden close to the plants; it looks nice.

Do you have a garden? You should! It’s fun!

If dinosaurs were alive instead of animals…

If dinosaurs were alive instead of animals, I would have one for my pet. I would have a big long-neck dinosaur–the biggest you can get. Instead of a long neck dinosaur, a giraffe would be extinct and instead of a tyrannosaurus rex a bulldog would be extinct. Instead of dog food there would be dinosaur crunch. But the problem would be: “Now how would you fit them into your house?!”

The Museum of Biodiversity

We went to the museum. It was cool. There was a really big whale skeleton; it looked like a big dinosaur fish. I even got a private tour and the lady showed me a dried coral reef. It was really great. The museum had lots of animals in glass boxes. It had a store with toy birds that could tweet. It had yucky candy that had real bugs in it! There was also whale movie. It was nice–maybe you will go there sometime, too.
