Imagination Games

     Skylar, Shawn and I play a lot of made-up games. For example: we are orphans outside and we have to collect food and stuff. But in that game, I'm mean to 6-year-old Jeremiah (we call him Jeremy and he's played by Skylar.) Shawny plays the oldest brother, Tim, and I play the middle sister. I'm usually the mean one in games, but not always. We do it this way because if Shawny acted mean, it might encourage him to act that way in real life. Plus, Sky says that it's good for my acting (remember, I want to be an actress).
A lot of times, Sky plays the youngest, like in "The Farm Game." It's this game where we all collect animals. I'm this snobby teen who collects rare animals and spoils them. Shawny trains animals for pet talent shows and earns trophies and stuff. Sky is this 6-year-old who finds stray (and sometimes rare) animals. I want them for my collection, so I sort of try to steal them.
I could go on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on about all the different games we play but I'll just tell you about one more. It's my favorite. It's called Percy. If you have not read the blog entry "the book worm side of me," (one of my first blog entrys)  then go read it now, or else this will not make sense. Then read the rest of this. I'm Percy, Skylar is one of the characters, Annabeth, and Shawn is one of the characters, Grover.


     I got my high orange belt and so did Shawn, even though he tested for low! Sky got her high purple!

Untie With the Old and Tie With the New

     Sky Just tested for an orange belt and now she's going to test for high purple! Mrs. Donald said that Skylar is the only student that she would let test again so fast. Skylar is the oldest in the class and she learned the stuff that she has to know to become a purple belt really fast. Shawny and I are going to test for orange on the same day. Shawn's going to test for low orange an I'm going to test for high.

The Orange Belt and chocolate

     My sister got her high orange belt. Good job Skylar! Shawn and I are still yellow but that's okay. Also, Mr. Donald, our instructor, loves chocolate so I'm going to buy him some (maybe he'll give me my orange belt. Just kidding! But I'm still going to bring him chocolate.)
