Anyhow, sometimes Mum tries to trip us up when she's reading to make sure we're paying attention. Today we were reading World History 1, about Nomads. There was a short fiction story in it about a girl called Taruk. Apparently Taruk and her family were in a group of Nomads. They moved around until they got to the Fertile Crescent (Near Egypt and Babylon) and Taruk saw a river. She had never swam in a river before. So she stepped into the river "and was immediately eaten by crocodiles and died."
I started giggling (Mum: "Jordan! You're laughing at poor Taruk?")
Oh no, Mother. Try as you might, you will never trip us up. I say 'us'...Emily thought it was real though... (What does that tell you?)

How could I say that...the're not cool, they're so freakishly FREAKISH!) . i now to draw new pepole at the bottem of the page ill show you. by Jordan
Hmmmm. I actually like some of my vocab there. Pepole...hehe cool! At the 'bottem' of the page there is a rather crude drawing of a man with spiky hair, a large nose, and a whole lot of nose hair. He has four fingers. He's standing next to a circle with several shapes on it that could be land. It has three words under it. They say, this is erth.
Was it an improvement from my previous drawings? Who knows? *Sigh* Sometimes I feel like I'll never understand myself...
