Home Learning - Week 3 - Apple Taste Test, Gymnastics, Back Brace, Subtraction

Andrew can tell math is getting easier for me. I am subtracting.
I took a spelling pre-test.
I went to the orthodontist.
Next time Dr. Chung is going to take my braces and spacer out - I am excited to chew gum again! I want to have a party with Carlo - he's a good one to celebrate with, because of his smile. He's always happy to see me. Right?
I am learning to do a hand stand in gymnastics...
and to walk on the balance beam.
Bear walking is easy.
Gymnastics is near my old house - I don't like the colour they painted it because I liked it blue. It makes me upset to look at it, but I want to drive by it because I like the house. I wish we lived there still, but we never will again.
We did an apple taste test. I loved the ambrosia apple. I hated the empire apple. Mom liked the honeycrisp. Apples make us burp. What's wrong with us!!?
This is a sugar plum. It smells exactly like my sugar plum smelly marker. I ate the whole thing. I mean the plum!
My brace is making my back straight. Scoliosis means your back is not straight and it will really hurt if you don't wear a brace, and you might have to have surgery. I wear it the whole day, except for  a break. It is painful, but I like the colour of it.
I did my homework while I waited for Serap to check my new brace.
Then I had a rest.
Later, I met some home schooling kids at the library and made a dream catcher. A dream catcher catches your bad dreams. I saw my old friend, Aidan.
Mom showed me how to make a bag from a t-shirt. I like it.
Our garden plot is growing grass! Is it from the horse manure?
I helped pollinate a squash flower. 
Oregano smells good. Put it in the oven. Turn off the heat. In the morning it will be dry.
One jar is for my dad.
We made salsa with it: tomatoes, onion, cilantro, oregano, chilli pepper, salt, lime.
We ate it with quesadillas. You can eat squash blossoms. I don't like them.
I went on a recycling treasure hunt: I saw a hilarious wallet, made from a milk carton.
The shelf is made from a plastic carton. I didn't notice there was a bug there.
We saw this lamp made from a cardboard box.
This homemade dog food was disgusting, but it was healthy for the dog - Cooper - that we met today. We went for a walk. I gave him a treat - I don't know what flavour, but I know it was a dog treat, not a human treat, for sure.

I am exhausted. I want to play on my tablet now. Yeah, exactly. Good-bye, You-tubers! Ha ha ha! (What's wrong with me?!)

  1. I so enjoy reading about your week. I agree the milk container wallet is very funny and your brace is a nice colour. I also liked your old house being blue. When new owners painted my old house, I thought it looked very odd. You have done some interesting projects this week. I want to make a bag like yours.
    Sincerely, Sheila
