HealthToday is a special day - I'm having a "Braces Off" celebration. I have my expander off, my braces off and I'm sleeping with my (scoliosis) brace off. That's pretty special.
With braces I couldn't eat oranges or peaches - they got stuck in there! You know what I mean, right? They are stringy. I couldn't eat caramel, gum or gumis, either, so today we did everything I wanted to do: one caramel, five gumis and I am chewing a whole package of gum. Juicy Fruit is very spicy when you put it under your top lip.
I want to blow bubbles - how about a new packet of gum another day?
I don't know if my old neighbours will notice my braces are off, and my expander... Obviously they will! I have nothing in my mouth except gum and teeth and mouth. My mouth has a lot of mouth in there! I look so different than before. I totally do, right Mom? It actually changed my whole face.
This is for making my retainer. It was pink and disgusting, then it turned dry in my mouth. I don't need anything in my mouth except my retainer; I'm a normal girl!

Beetle and bee - observing, researching, writing
Wasps are not soft.
A bee dies when it stings you; if you want another sting from a wasp, he'll bring you another sting! That's right!

Used calculator to find total slugs moved to date: 198
Slugs are girls and boys! They're both!
Math - Addition and Subtraction
Steady progress with addition and subtraction: she is now able to add one mentally and subtract one with a number line, at least 80% of the time, to 10 - and beyond!
Processing SpeedThis is code-breaking work for Andrew. I have to get a letter and write it in the square and it makes a word. I am fast.
"Jabbed" means poked.
"Wheezy" means can't breathe properly.

- Dogwood is the flower of BC. Dogwood is a tree. It is pink or white.
- Kitsilano swimming pool is the longest in Canada. It's an outdoor pool by the ocean. I went there three times.
- Once Upon a Time is filmed in Steveston. That's a part of Richmond. I want to go there and see the clock tower. It's a clock and a tower! It's both! You can actually see Rumpelstiltskin's workshop there, too!

Science - More Bugs!
|Brown, six legs on abdomen, two long feelers on tiny head, small, speckly wings with stripes on the edges, small, brown eyes on the side of its head|
It is not a scorpion because it doesn't have a tail like a scorpion, or pinchers.
We think it is a Helmeted Squash Bug. Helmeted Squash Bugs destroy squash plants and make a stink if you bother them. It's not dangerous, so we didn't have to worry about it. Good thing it didn't make a bad smell in our house!
Have a good day!
