I am playing soccer with GYSO again this year.  I am on the 6th to 8th grade  boy’s team.

I like my coach, he comes up with new ways for us to practice.  Yesterday we jumped over hurdles and ran around cones. He also encourages me to try hard.

We had our first game and the score was 1-3.  We have a make up game today at 6:30. Hopefully our corrected uniforms will be in!  There was a mix up on everyone’s shirts 🙂

Here is my schedule if you want to come.  We usually play on Thursdays on field 7 (on the  behind Goshen College, though there are a few other days.

Making a Rope

On Saturday we went to Five Medals and made a rope. It was easy, once we learned how.

Audrey, Megan, and I made the rope. There were two crank machines. They were a board nailed to another board that we stood on, the cranks are attached to hooks with some string on it. There was also a thing that looks like a mallet with four valleys. First Audrey cranked her crank, it had four hooks on it. I think it was to twist the string, then once that was done Megan took the mallet and walked slowly while I turned the rope. My thing had one hook and was to twist all of them together. When we where done they took small pieces and tied it so it would not fall apart.

We had a lot of fun at Five Medals, I hope to go again next year!


Answer to Guess What!

I am allergic to a bee or a wasp of some sort. I got stung by something and after about ten minutes I started to swell up and had lots of hives, it was not fun.

We did not know I was allergic to anything because I have been stung before and they never bothered me.  It was a surprise! When I started to itch, Momma gave me benedryl and ice.  It helped a little.

We went to the urgent care. They gave me medicine, more ice, and watched me for an hour.  Then I was okay to go home!  Daddy said it was a good pizza night 🙂

I now have an epi pen I am supposed to carry around.

This is what I looked like about 3 hours after I got stung and we were home again.



Yesterday we went canoeing. We went on the Elkhart river, from Shanklen Park to Ox Bow Park. Oma and Opa rented the canoes. It was fun, Mark and I shared a canoe. The river was fun, some parts were hard but fun. After that we had a party at Oma’s and Opa’s house for the 4 of July!



I started soccer in April!

Last Tooth Fortress

The other day, I lost my last tooth! I made a fortress for the tooth fairy to get through.The black “antennea” things are tooth fairy zappers.  The camera is for taking pictures, the dogs are to bark at the tooth fairy.  The space guy is top of the lid and he has a repellant.  A scary monster guy is hiding inside to scare and try to tickle the tooth fairy.  The guy on the bike is a police man in case the tooth fairy tried to take the tooth without paying for it.

The tooth fairy got through.  I did not get any pictures or hear any noise.  I guess she is so fast, my fortress was not good enough.


Megan wanted to write a post too!  So, here is her story about today.

We had fun sledding on the snowboard and the sleds. I had the sled that had orange and some holding on bars. It did not have sides like normal sleds. It was fast!

I had fun snowboarding. Audrey was teaching me how to snowboard. It was hard! But, I did it 🙂 I am learning how to do the fishtail and I did it once.

We had very much fun playing on the snowhill. I would like it to snow some more because we have hardly had any snow this year.

If it snows more, I would like to sled some more and snowboard some more. I would like to make snowballs and have snowball fights. I want to make a snowman too!
