Past few days

Happy Birthday, Candace!! She's 6 today!



The 23rd: Instead of sitting around at the McMillans doing nothing, I got to go to art class with Anna. Yayness! I'll post what we drew when I can get ahold of a scanner. Seeing our old house was weird... then we visited some old neighbors and went to an Arab family's house. I spent most of that time drawing.



The 24th: In the morning the Bennet's brought Einstein bagels for breakfast (yummy... I ate 2 1/2, plus a bunch of MASSIVE strawberries - the small ones were huge!). After they left I practiced my guitar for a while, played the piano, and watched part of Little House on the Pararie (Season 3). Dad, Nate, and Candace got home from somewhere, and we all watched Charlotte's Web as a family. The one with Dakota Fanning - it was good. In the evening we went to the Cherry's for dinner. I borrowed the first Underland Chronicles (Gregor the Overlander, The Prophecy of Bane) from them, and I've already finished the first one. I love them! They may seem a bit young, but they're still reaaaaaaaally good.



Today: Mom went to get her liscense renewed, and I watched more Little House, then read some. We went over to the Sauve's (www.9soladeogloria.blogspot.com), bringing them a meal of cheese bread and zatar, along with the spinach pies, meat pies, and some other sort of pies. Mrs. Sauve showed us around the house, and Christianna, Grace, Cait, and I were playing with their Chinchillas for a while. After lunch, we went out front and pulled weeds and did other gardening for a while. It was fun helping them, and we've also not done any gardening for a long time - I've trimmed our bushes and straightened the front yard before, but not any actual gardening. After the Sauves, we came back to the Swifts (where we're staying), and then headed off to the Simnowitz's. Nate played with Matthew and Michael while Candace tagged along, and I watched Jonathan for a while, and then read and drew some (I got a pretty good one done - of Matthias in my book).


(Edit - that was yesterday, we had to run out of the door for the Simnowitzs... today Cait and Daddy are driving up to Alma for the Alma Highland Games, and I'm going over to Emily's for a while, and Naomi and Micaiah are going to be there... what a day for rain.)


Over'n'out,
Kilo-Yankee

It's raining? It is SO hot right now!

Anna said...

Oh, yeah, it's pounding over here.

Anna said...

I went outside for less than a minute and almost got soaked.

BananaBint said...

Wait, when I came on no body had commented, but then it says that Anna just commented! This is confusing...

BananaBint said...

It did it again!! Anna!!! This is getting me really confused......

BananaBint said...

It did it AGAIN!! And this time it came up like two comments before my last one!

Anna said...

Yeah, that always happens to me. My comments don't show up under the blog until I exit the site and come back.

Anna said...

It's really annoying. But I didn't know it happened to you too.

BananaBint said...

Yeah, me too. This post had just recieved NINE comments in under 5 minutes! (:

Anna said...

10. I mean, 11.

BananaBint said...

Sorry, ten, and probably by the time this appears, 11. Or more. (: Ya know Kyleigh, when I'm commenting on a lot of things like now, it gets REALLY annoying typing those random letters!

BananaBint said...

Grrrrr. 12

Anna said...

I know! It's like, super tedious.
This is post 13, by the way.

Anna said...

No, wait. You commented just before me, so that was 14 and this is 15.

BananaBint said...

No, I think it's 14. Or at least that's what the comment thing says. I THINK this is 15...

BananaBint said...

Kyleigh, can you PLEASE take the random letter thing off? (: PLEASE? (:

BananaBint said...

pqbbgmmg. See how annoying that is to TYPE?!?!?!

Anna said...

And this is 16. I think.
Yeah, it's 16.
We watched Arthur and the Invisibles last night. Mostly it's stupid, but it's the kind of fantasy I like.

Anna said...

Oh, you just commented again before me......... So this is number 20

BananaBint said...

It's not 16 'cause I just posted something. Maybe it is. I don't know. This is really confusing. (: hezzsutp. That reminds me of ketchup. (:

BananaBint said...

What's Arthur and the Invisables about?

Anna said...

iaeagzg. But normally I'm lucky (if there was luck) and get all the short ones.

BananaBint said...

Now it says that there ar 22. So this is 23, unless you comment before me. (:

BananaBint said...

Never mind. That was 24. This SHOULD be 25 unless you comment. Kyleigh, PLEASE take the random letter off. PLEASE!! I BEG YOU!!!

BananaBint said...

Ha! That was 25. (: I think this post has the most comments.

BananaBint said...

OK. My dad says I have to get off line. See ya!! (I mean, see what you comment, not actually see YOU!)

Anna said...

Umm...... It would take awhile to esplain. Hold on a minute while I get the case

Anna said...

If I had explained in my own words, I would have rewritten the movie. So here it goes:
Freddie Highmore..blahblahblah......stars as Arthur, a brave young boy who must find a hidden treasure that will save his family's home. To do so, Arthur must enter the underground realm of the "Invisibles"(called the minimoids in the movie, which the dn't tell you, because I guess Arthur and the Minimoids would be a weird title.), tiny creatures who live beneath his own backyard. ....... blah blah blah he learns a lesson abut little heroes, which desn't have naything to do wiht the movie.

Anna said...

Yamean I typed all that out for NoTHING? Ah well. Bye.

Anna said...

this is comment 31. That could be a record between us.

Anna said...

I'm gonna keep commetning for the fun of it. Anyways, about the movie..... It doesn't say that while Arthur is a minimoid he falls in love with the princess, Solania. It also doesn't say that this is apparently OK agewise because in minimoid ages he's really her age..... 1,000 years old. so that was weird. Also there was one sword fight to music and they were dancing.... it was creepy. But for the most part, I liked it.
Also, minimoids can't swim. Go figure.

Anna said...

Oh, and the bad guy was weird. "The Evil M".. Malthazar, I think. The whole plot about how he got to be evil is creepy and weird.
Also, Solania dresses immodestly.
But on the whole, not a bad movie.

Anna said...

Comment 34!

Anna said...

Bye, this is getting boring.
Anna

Ilevot said...

BananaBint said...

Ilevot said...

yuppers, I did. =P =D

BananaBint said...

Kyleigh, have you read all these yet? 'Cause you better soon.....

Kyleigh said...

I just read them now.... and in a way the verification code is for keeping ya'll from crazy posting.
I won't this time, but next time I see a bunch of random posts like that, they get deleted.

BananaBint said...

Why? That's so mean! This is fun too. (:

Ilevot said...

ha ha...you go, girl! =P I never get that many people commenting on mine anyways, so I never have to worry about such things...but I guess that's cause I never update it. =P

Esile said...
