Sophie: The neighbors still haven't taken their decorations down yet. That means they'll never take them down.
Me: No it doesn't.
Sophie (nodding her head): Because I am holding a heavy bag of seashells.

my VEX robotics club tournament was a week ago

believe it or not, we actually got to the semifinals. the weirdest part is, we were the only middle school team out of forty teams. the other teams were all high school kids.our robot is the one in the back. it was designed to have arms that slide under the rings that we have to put on the hoop, pick the rings up, and slide them onto the pipe. the red ones were worth five times as much as the others, so we always tried to get them.

I went fishing Tuesday

              Actually, it wasn't as fun as it looks. When I first got there, I had to use a foot long "WhinniethePooh" fishing pole because the other ones were taken. That slipped out of my hands within my first five castings and fell into the pond. After that, I got another pole and on my first try with that one I caught my only fish. My hook went all the way through its nasal passage and out its nose. My friend Chad had to get it out for me with pliers. Just before I was about to go home, I stepped in some quicksand and covered my shoes with it. Whoops. I couldn't put them in my house's floor until after school on Wednesday.
