Shopping with Nana by Maddie & Melanie

We went to the mall with Nana a couple of weeks ago.  She took us to Crazy 8, a clothes store for kids.  We went there to get back to school clothes.  She helped Mellie and me find things to try on.  There were lots and lots of things to choose from.  I got a pink plaid dress, some t-shirts, some cute blue jeans, a black plaid jacket, and pair of cute boots.  Melanie also got the same boots, and she got a pink jacket, some t-shirts, blue jeans, and other stuff.  Then Nana bought us ice cream at the mall, and then we went bungee jumping in the mall.  It cost $7 for three minutes.  Not exactly cheap.  Nana spent a lot of money on us that day & I am very greatful.  Nana also got me a new backpack & a new lunch kit.  It is kind of like my old one only the polka dots are bigger and my name is in a different color.  Mrs. Eyre monogrammed it for me.  Mellie's backpack is purple with silver guitars on it.  She also got a purple lunch kit with the guitars on it.  I think I am going to wear my plaid pink dress for the first day of school. I am excited about my new clothes!

Avocado Update by Jack

We planted both seeds on July 11, and it took a long time to grow roots.  The one in the water had a really long root today so mom put it in a larger glass.  You can really see the root now.  The one in the pot probably has a root underneath but it has a really small tree growing out of the top.  I learned that it takes a really long time to grow roots from an avocado pit.  The one in the pot has a tree growing so this is the one that grows faster, even though you can't see the root.  After a few more days we will plant the one in the glass into a pot.

Sleepover at Aunt Ree's by Maddie

On Friday, Melanie and I went to Aunt Ree's house. We were going to sleep over there.  After we got settled we went to Crave Cupcakes.  Crave Cupcakes is a place where they make cupcakes.  They have very good cupcakes there.  After we got our cupcakes we put them in a box and went back to Aunt Ree's house.  Then, when we went home we watched a little bit of tv.  And then we ate dinner.  We had La Madeleine, my usual favorite, which is Caesar Salad with Chicken and a baguette.  Then I ate half of one of my cupcakes, because we each got two.  Then me and Mellie got into our pajamas, we decided to skip our baths.  Then we went downstairs to watch some more tv.  Aunt Ree gave us some presents.  Mellie got a coloring book and a kitty Littlest Pet Shop.  And I got a bunny Littlest Pet Shop and a notebook and a pencil case with colored pencils inside.  I took them all in one hand and opened my book and started drawing something with all of them in one hand.  After I did that I drew a round piece of bubble gum that had not been chewed yet & then drew a bubble gum wrapper.  I watched some more tv and played with my Littlest Pet Shop.  Then Mellie went to bed.  Then I went to bed but didn't to to sleep quite yet because we had gone to the library that day & I had a book called The Fairy Chronicles, that was the series, but the title was Luna and the Well of Secrets.  I finished the book & tried to go to sleep.  But I couldn't becasue Mellie was SNORING REALLY LOUDLY and my earplugs hurt my ears.  So I went to Aunt Ree's room and said, "I can't sleep because Mellie is snoring really loud."  And she said, "Here, take these earplugs, they are really soft and work really well."  So after I put them on I went to sleep.  In the morning I had a cinnamon roll and some Sister Schubert's kolaches, the small ones with the hot dog things.  Then Aunt Ree took us home.  I went home in my pajamas!
