Today is my birthday, and Adrian said “happy birthday” to me about a dozen times and I like that!
We had a soccer game this morning. We did good. We had fun.
We are going to have pepperoni pizza or ham and pineapple pizza. I have a chocolate cake with vanilla frosting and ice cream. Andrea, Mark and Adrian are decorating my cake. I don’t know what it looks like. They gave me some purple frosting. It tastes go-oo–od!
I like horses. So Momma took us to see some horse statues in Lexington.
Andrea and I have our first soccer game this Saturday, 1 May at 10:00. Mark’s first game is this week too (at 9:00), but he will probably miss it because he has his Pinewood Derby Race at the Elkhart Plaza.Â We do not know if we will see his race, though we will watch them set up.
Hope to see you at Nortside Church of the Nazarene to cheer us on! Our games are most every Saturday for the next two months.
Auntie Angelique asked if Andrea and I could come over and spend the night. We made some pizza and had cheese sandwiches with crackers instead of bread. We watched Parent Trap (with Haley Mills).Â My friend Ianna came over too.
We all slept together in a big bed. Uncle Sam had to read The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe because we had trouble getting to sleep.
I woke up and then I took a shower. Then we ate breakfast, bread and eggs and BACON! Then it was time to go.
It was FUN! Fun, Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!
The day before yesterday we went to Mrs. Klaussen’s house.Â She is a neighbor.Â She taught us how to make soap! It is EASY!
Before we got there she mixed some lye with water. It is dangerous! It looked like crystals. Then she let it cool.
We used a scale and added olive oil, coconut oil and palm oil together. We had to be accurate on the amounts used. We melted it on the stove and then I mixed it to cool it down.Â Mark held the thermometer.
Mrs. Klaussen poured the lye in and Momma mixed it.Â We put in peppermint smell. After Momma stirred a little more, Mrs Klaussen poured it into cookie molds and milk cartons to mold it.
Then we put a piece of cardboard on top and then we put blankets over it so it could keep warm. Then we went home and let it sit for a day.Â
The next morning we went to Mrs. Klaussen’s house and took it out of the molds and cut it. One of the soaps has “recycle” on it. That’s my favorite.
We now let the soap sit for three days because it is poisonous. It is very acidy and could hurt you. We have to use plastic gloves to touch it. In three days we turn it and let it air out some more. We have to let it air for three to six weeks before using it.
I like Cheerios. I prefer regular, but I like Honey Nut Cheerios too. They are my favorite breakfast cereal. I have liked them since I was little. Here is a story from when I was little.
By Audrey, age 3 (26 September 2007)
I put the Cheerios in the bowl. Five bowls from downstairs. I come upstairs with the bowls. I put some Cheerios in there. A lot of Cheerios!
I ran away with them. I was going to MacDonalds. I ran away again. Then I ran away lots of times. I ran some moreâ€¦Some Cheerios ran away too with me. I hold the Cheerios and ran away with them to MacDonalds.
Momma saw me. Momma take a picture. â€œCome over here! No, Donâ€™t get no more Cheerios and run away with them. With lots and lots of Cheerios.â€ Momma put them in the box and put the Cheerios away.
I told Mark, “can you help me ride Andrea’s bike?” So he did! He helped me, he holded me and then he ran with me and let go. I rode for a little bit and fell.
Then I ran inside,”Mom Mom! I rode Andea’s bike!” Momma said, “without me seeing?” She said, “no way! You can’t ride it!”
Then Momma got some brownies ready–she made them yesterday without us knowing–and said they were to celebrate.
Then I showed Mommy. She let me ride on the road. I shouted, “Zoooommmm”. She took pictures. Momma was surprised, because this was the first time someone helped me to learn. When Mommy watched, I had to turn. With trees in the way, I crashed into them. I did not get hurt, Yippee! Then I ate my brownie! It was good.
I liked riding Andrea’s bike. I liked surprising Mom. She was very surprised. I want to get my training wheels off and ride some more!
