Bowling and books

This week I went to my friend Ben’s birthday party. It was at the bowling alley and was so much fun! I even got to go with my Nana and it was special.

On Sunday, I went with Ani and my mom to sell my cook books. We went to Sprouts and set up a table and signs. It was fun. Ani and I danced and made a good team to sell. Towards the end, she was stopping people and then I would tell them all about it. Some people didn’t want to buy it and it made me a little sad, but then there were people who did want to buy it so that made me feel better. It was a little hard to talk to people but after a little bit it got fun. I sold a lot of books and even reached my first goal of 50 books!

Race day

rick grunion run 2014

This weekend I had my race. It was the Grunion Run in Dana Point. I did the 5k and it was my third one. I got 6th place and I was the youngest one running. I didn’t get a medal this time but it was really fun. It rained again and I got to run with my dad. I got a neat t-shirt. My favorite part was running with my dad.

A BIG week

We got to go to a GMO rally to tell the GMA (they work with the grocery stores) that we want GMOs labeled. We got to dance and it was so fun. We got to play on the beach too. I saw my friend D’Marie and Jon and Kathleen. It was the best day ever.

Happy Valentine’s

This week was Valentine’s Day. My mom put together CDs for us to pass out to our friends instead of candy. They had Let it go in Spanish and English. They were way better than candy.

We also started planting in our school garden. We planted all the plants for our butterfly garden and had fun drawing with chalk. It’s starting to look like a real garden now.

This weekend was Valentine’s weekend. We had a four day weekend and it was fun. On Friday we went to the DMV with my mom. It was kind of boring, but we made it work. It was hard waiting and everyone was tired. There was a man at the desk that was not very nice and my brother was getting grouchy. Then, a lady came over and gave us snacks and my mom flowers. She was so nice and it made us all happy. She was a special lady.

My mom and dad took us to Disneyland! They said we were all working so hard and being such good kids so we earned it. It was the best day ever. We went on rides and met princesses and Jake. At night we got to see World of Color and it was so cool.

Green Festival

2.10.2014 006

This weekend my mom and I went to the Laguna Beach Green Festival. It was also National Girl Scout Cookie Weekend. I was giving a speech all about my project to get GMOs out of Girl Scout cookies. I got to speak on stage and it was really fun. We listened to some songs about life that two girls were singing. They had pretty voices. We met Team Marine and learned about their bottle cap art. My Girl Scout troop was collecting bottle caps and maybe we can do a project now with Team Marine. I got to make a heart seed bomb. You use newspaper and water to make it mushy and put it into a cookie cutter to make a heart. Then, you put seeds on top and let it dry. Then, you can plant it. My friend Ben did a speech too. He talked all about eating healthy food and how it makes you  happy. My friend Bella did a speech about our Girl Scout Elephant project. It was her first time doing a speech. This Green Festival was really neat because it was all kids doing presentations.
