Cute Little Things that (Face it) sometimes rip your grass out.

My favorite animals are raccoons. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know they're mean and vicious, but they're so cute!!!!!!!! I have a Littlest Pet Shop raccoon figure named Rocky, a Webkins raccoon named Sofie, a Beanie Baby raccoon named Sam, and a puppet raccoon named Friz.  

These raccoons are not mean and vicious.

Do you ever feel like you want to kick and punch and fight ('cause it's fun) but you don't want to hurt people? Well this is your chance!
Taekwando is like karate. I'm a high yellow belt, so are Shawn and Skylar. We've been doing it since the end of last year, but we took a 3 month break vacationing to different places so we missed a lot. A yellow belt is the second belt. Yellow's not very high but we've all gotten much stronger since starting it, and its super fun.

Recently, when we were white belts, we had a Taekwando tournament. It involved forms (groups of kicks, punches, and stances) and sparring (fighting with pads). I won a third place medal in sparring and a fourth place medal in forms. The groups aren't very big so, 4th place was last place and 3rd was second last. But it's OK 'cause it was only my first tournament.

Us with our medals when we were white belts. Sky and I competed against each other for forms, but otherwise, we were all in different groups.

4th and 3rd place.

The Book Worm Side of Me

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is the best book series ever!

     It's about this boy who finds out that Greek mythology is real, and he goes on all these adventures. The books are in first person, totally modern, and absolutely hilarious! There's a movie coming out on Feb. 12 called The Lightning Thief (book #1) and Logan Learman plays Percy!

Here's a picture of a drawing of Percy that I drew.

(I can't show you the top or bottom

because it will give away to much of
the story.)

The Magic Thief and Avalon are two other great book series. The Magic Thief (book #1) came out in 2007, so there's only 2 books in the series. I read book #1 from the library, and ordered book #2 online, so I only own book #2. It's about this boy who thinks he's just a orphan who lives on the street, but finds out he's more than that. But there's something different about this wizard book. Something more alive (that's a hint) about the magic. Here's a picture of book #2.

     Avalon is about these three girls who find out that there's magic out there and that they have something to do with it.
