Four Months

Hi! It’s been four months since I wrote last on here so I guess I should write.
In July we had two birthdays. In August we went to NJ. In September we had two birthdays and 5 births. And nothing has happened in October. I will try to write more often.

A few weeks ago we found four mocking bird eggs in a nest… Three of them hatched, here are some pictures…

Interesting Information About Mocking Birds

*Mocking birds get there name from mocking other birds. They do not have a song of their own, and have been known to mimic squeaky wheelbarrows, and people whistling.

Gardening+ season poll


I don’t know about you, but my favorite season is spring…
Today we went to a plant nursery, and got some fruit and vegetable plants. Tomorrow we will plant them in our garden, and that is something I always enjoy.
Besides the fruit and vegetable plant, there seems to be flowers everywhere! My favorite flowers are daisies and lillies. I hope to put some flowers pictures on here soon….
But for now, here is a poll for anyone interested-

And don’t forget… if you would like to sign up, just write your name, age, and email to

Hope to write more soon-flowersinmybasket

We didn’t get any good pictures on Monday because my camera doesn’t zoom much.     But it was still fun. We saw some chickadees, a blue bird, and some birds that I don’t know the name of.

I  am very busy right now so I cannot write much. I will try to write on Monday.  Me  and my two youngest sisters, Ellie and Sara are going to have a picnic in the backyard and are going to try to see birds. If I get a good picture of a bird  I will put it on here then.

Also –  We  still only have 7 or 8 people signed up.  Should we wait until we get 20 people, or should we do it right away? If you want to answer that, you can email

A single Egg

We have four Chickens.PICT5168

Three  red-Risa,Rosie, and Henrietta. And one speckled-Clyde.                                   Clyde is my Dad’s Chicken. Today he laid his first egg! The red ones haven’t started yet though. We knew it was his, because he was in the coop later than usual today, and when he came down, it was there!                  Happy New Years!-

drawing circles

One day a girl named Anna said, “I love to Draw! I draw so much!”

Another girl, whose name was Emily said”Not as much as  I do!”

Anna replied by saying,” I could draw circles around you!”

” Oh no you can’t!” said Emily.

Just then Anna got out a piece of paper. She got a pencil, and drew a big U in the middle of the paper. Then, she drew two circles around it. “See! Told you I could draw circles around you!”

By the Shores of Silver Lake

This week I have been reading a book-By the Shores of Silver Lake

It is #5 in a series /Laura Ingalls Wilder Books. What the book is about-
The Ingalls family( Charles Caroline Mary Laura Carrie and Grace )
get a surprise visitor. It is their Aunt, and she came to say that if they moved to Silver Lake, Charles Ingalls could get a job making railroads, and would get paid a lot. But their blind daughter, Mary is sick. So Charles Ingalls goes alone. Later, when Mary is better, the family takes a train, and meets him. They live in a shanty, which is big enough for two bunk beds to be inside, touching each other. The shanty has no door. Just a curtain. When it is almost winter, a man says to them that he is going away until spring, and that they could live in his house by Silver lake, because the shanty would be to cold. It even comes with food for them. Winter comes. Snow is all over. The lake is frozen. Christmas comes. All you could see for miles was white. Their closest neighbor is 60 miles away.  Pa played the fiddle and they were cozy in the house all winter long. Laura and Carrie go outside, and see a huge wolf. They start to run to the house.

To find out more, read By the Shores of Silver Lake.

The Pretty Pond Or Lovely Lake

PICT3944PICT3946 PICT3949 PICT3950 PICT3954 Once upon a time three girls went in the woods. They rode half way on bicycles, then hiked the rest of the way. They brought a bag with them, and in the bag there was a camera, a water bottle, bandages, an umbrella (better be safe then sorry) and some other things of the sort. Also, a dear dog followed them, to keep them safe. While hiking, they found some darling daisies.   One girl took a picture of them. Then they came across a scary snake skin. It was all broken up. The girl took a picture of that too. After that, they hiked some more. Then they came across a Lovely Lake. Or maybe a Pretty Pond. The girl with the camera took a picture. It also had a beautiful boat. She took a picture of that too. Then on the way back, they found a dead mushy mole.  Yes. That got it’s picture taken too. But I don’t think you want to see it. Well, back to the story.
They All went in for perfect pumpkin pie on that dazzling day.

Autumn Has Come!

The katydid says it as plain as can be

And the crickets are saying it under a tree;

In the aster’s blue eyes you may read the same hint,

Just as clearly as if you had seen it in print;

And the corn sighs it, too, as the waves in the sun,

That Autumn is here, and the summer is done.
