Something My Dad Wrote On His Blog

My dad wrote a blog post today about a dog named Devil that is a German Shepherd. My dad has the dog’s medical records and did a very good blog post about the dog and I had a lot of interest in his blog post and that is why i asked him if I could blog about it as well and link to his blog and my dad said that I could and that made me very happy because the German Shepherd dog named Devil is a very cute dog. Here is the link to my dad’s blog to read more about Devil the German Shepherd: http://papergreat.blogspot.com/2012/03/peering-at-devils-old-medical-record.html!

Here is a picture of Devil’s dog tag that my dad is letting me keep. I am going to keep it with my collection of keys in my special keys box that has a key on it.

I Went To See Celtic Nights

I went to Penn State York to see Celtic Nights with my mom, mommom, and my aunt Linda. We had an awesome time seeing Celtic Nights today at Penn Sate York. We had awesome seats because no one sat in front of us during the show witch was very great because then I could see the show a lot better than if people were sitting in front of us. At the end of the show I got a CD of the Celtic Nights songs that they sung during the show. Everyone from Celtic Nights was out there autographing the CDS for you and my favorite dancer Owen (was a very cute dancer for the Celtic Nights. He is from Scotland) even signed my CD for me and he smiled to when my mom said to that he was my favorite.

These Are Awesome Pictures of Round Birds From Sam Harris


My mom sent me Sam Harris website: http://cargocollective.com/roundbirds/Nuthatch that is so cool it has awesome pictures of round birds that you can buy from him. He lives in England.

He makes these round birds handmade by himself and they look like the real bird and that to me is so cool and awesome and I want to learn how to do that just like he did.

I am giving him all of the credit because he is the one who made these very cute round bird by hand. I think Sam Harris does awesome work.

On the right is a picture of a Kingfisher ( My Favorite Bird Family) that he made.

Why I like my electronics

Editor’s note from Mom: This is a reflection Sarah wrote for school after reading this article. She and I would be very interested to know what you think about both the practical and personal effects of such a move.

This is the kind of mini laptop I have. I got it for Christmas and I really like it.

I would NOT be able to be “unplugged” for six months. The hardest part would be no video games but I also would not be able to get on my mini laptop, or on Playstation 2, Wii, Gameboy, my dad’s phone, my Mommom’s iPad or anything like it.
          Besides playing games, I like to go to Google, Wikipedia, Dictionary.com, or the National Geographic website. And if I had to unplug, I wouldn’t be able to check on National Geographic and count on them for information.
          I don’t think I would mind if I didn’t have TV except for how I use it with my PS2 and Wii. But if I didn’t have a DVD player or the TV channels, I might not even be bothered about that. I watch it now because it’s funny but I’d rather be on the computer.
          The benefit I would see if I unplugged everything for six months is I would spend more time playing with my Legos. I would have to read books to find out facts about animals.
          I asked my mom if she would like to be unplugged. She said she would like to but she can’t because of her job which is online. So that would be the hardest part for her. She would also miss Facebook. But she thinks she would spend more time with our family if she didn’t have all that.
          Sometimes I think the hardest thing for our family is spending time together. Sometimes if I get caught up doing something on my computer, and my mom and dad are doing work on their laptops, and my Mommom is on her iPad, then we just all do whatever we’re doing and we don’t bother each other. But we could all play a board game together if our actions were the same as our thoughts about it being better to spend time with each other than with our electronics.
          So as you can see, we might want the good parts of being unplugged like spending more time together as a family but we don’t want to give up our fun games and stuff to get it.

Reflection on thankfulness

I wrote this on November 17 as one of my article of the week reflections for school. I hope you like it. When you comment on my blog, put the things that you are thankful for!

Reasons why to be thankful

There are a ton of things in the world that people should be thankful for, and I am one of those people who are thankful.

One thing I am thankful for is my pets, because they are loving, kind, very nice, and they bring energy to our house. When my day is going rough, it’s good to have a cat along your side, or my big, huge dog.

My family is another thing I’m grateful for, because they take care of me, they keep a roof over my head, they make sure I’m doing well in school and they help me if I mess up on something. I’m especially grateful that my mom and dad AND my mommom all live with me because I know some people don’t have all that.

This is a blue-winged kookaburra that lives in Australia.

I’m thankful for Australia because they have my favorite bird family, which is kingfishers. In the kingfisher family is the kookaburra, my favorite bird. I’m glad Australia has a habitat for those birds, because it has a lot of trees and beaches and water.

Also, I’m very thankful for books. Books give you an education just by reading and learning about things through words. In our house we have a LOT of books.

Cars are definitely something I’m thankful for, especially the Mini Cooper that I really like. If we didn’t have a car it would be really hard for us to get places, especially the ones that are further away.

I’m thankful for education. Some kids in some areas would like to have the spot that kids here are in, with the opportunity to go to school and get an education and they don’t. That’s really sad that they don’t get to learn when they’d like to, but they can’t because some of their families are poor. So I’m glad I can learn.

This is our SPCA.

I am thankful for the stars. You can see different things in them like the Big Dipper, the Little Dipper, the Milky Way galaxy and other things. They’re bright, like extra lights around your house at night.

The SPCA is something I’m very glad we have. The SPCA rescues animals that are neglected, abused and have no homes. It has a whole area for cats and another one for dogs. I’m most grateful that they let you adopt the animals for a good price, like buy one get one free cats, which is how we got Mr. Bill, one of our cats.

I’m thankful for National Geographic. It does a lot of different things for animals, like helping endangered species not become extinct. An example of what National Geographic does is that it helps big wild cats, like tigers, lions and cheetahs. They also have some of the best pictures of wildlife because they’re taken by professional people.

And one other thing I’m thankful for is the trash and recycle trucks. The reason I am very thankful for them is because they help our world become a better place for people to live. It might be a nasty job for people to have to do, but it’s really helpful and important and I hope that they know that. One time our bus stop even thanked them as they were picking things up and they said you’re welcome.

As you can see, this is just some of many reasons why to be thankful. Our world has a lot of good things to make it a better place!

Eskimos are awesome

This is the house we made out of a box for Nanook, my Lego Eskimo minifigure. We made snowy mountains, an igloo, and a place for him to go ice fishing.

Eskimos are people who lived in the very cold weather. Eskimos had to build their houses out of snow. Eskimos houses are called igloos. Because the weather was so cold they had to make their houses out of snow bricks and put the snow bricks in the shape of a dome with a littler dome in front of the big dome for a door!

Eskimos had to go ice fishing to get food to eat because everything was solid ice (on the ground and everywhere). The temperature when the Eskimos were around was below 50 degrees (that’s very cold weather they had)! I have learned that Eskimos are still around today (but the only thing is that they probably don’t live in igloos).

I have a Lego Mini figure that is an Eskimo. My Lego Eskimo is what made me want to learn a whole ton of really cool facts about Eskimos, so I could learn about how they made their houses, the way they got food, how they kept very warm in the very cold weather (when they lived in igloos).

There are many others reasons why I wanted to learn about Eskimos. I think Eskimos are awesome!

This is how Nanook looks up close. He is fishing!
