Softball Rocks!

This year I am doing softball. My team is the Highlands Ranch Hyenas. There are some girls who played softball last year with the same coach and there are some girls who have just started. I am one of the girls who has just started.
So far, I am doing really good. My batting stance is good, my catching is good and my throwing is good. My favorite position is shortstop. If you don't know where shortstop is, I'll tell you. It is right in between 2nd base and 3rd base. A lot of the action happens around there.
I have two coaches: Coach Stacie and Coach Trish. They are both moms for two of the kids on the team. The coaches are really encouraging and helpful. They've helped me notice the things I'm good at and the things I'm bad at. Then the help me fix the bad things and get even better at the good things.
Tonight I have practice at 7:15 and it goes to 8:15. It takes us a little bit to get there because we live in Parker and practice is at Highlands Ranch. We also have a game tomorrow against the Astros. It is our 2nd game. Our first game was against the Super Sluggers. I can't wait until 6:30 because that is when we are leaving to head down to practice. After the game I'll do another post if I have any time. And remember--Softball Rocks!!!!!!!

My Break

I had a great break. I did not go anywhere other than Colorado over my break, but I did have tons of fun. I had two play dates. One was with Faith and the other one was with Bella (Sleepover). I also saw a few movies: Secretariat, Open Season 3, and Soul Surfer. I recommend them all, except one part in Soul Surfer (The shark attack), which is pretty scary (They have really good special effects in that movie!).
I also lost two of my teeth (I think one of them was a molar.). I made a pot on my pottery wheel and my mom went to my uncle's wedding. I played outside a lot and I had tons of fun with my family. I don't want the break to end, but I want to go back to school!
I hope all of my friends had a great break like I did!

SUDOKU PUZZLES


Lately,I have been doing tons of sudoku! It is so much fun! Whether it's easy, medium, demanding or super challenging,I love it!I do a lot of demanding and super challenging.I have gotten them all right, except for one I did two nights ago. For some reason,I kept messing up!My ones,my eights,and my nines were all on the same row as the same number!So,I tried it with my dad.At first,we thought we were on the right path,but then,we noticed a one on the same path as another one!My dad and I were so confused.
My dad went downstairs to do some work and I tried it again.This time,I got everything right!I looked back at what my dad and I did,And I noticed that we had put a nine in a spot where we had been missing some facts. I showed my dad and he saw it too.
Do you want to try it? If so,it's right below:

Mauri's House

Yesterday,I walked to Mauri's house from school.We were going to have a playdate.When we got there,we took off our backpacks and went to the dog she was watching.We walked him to the school,with Lauren,and brought him back.Next we went on her computer and played a little bit of Webkinz.We had some ice cream.Next we played with our American Girls and listened to Taylor Swift.And that was just the beginning!
Some of the other things we did were:
~Played in her backyard
~Listened to some more music
~Conviced my mom to let me stay until 8:00 instead of just 6:00
~Played with phones that text to the other one(And also have a calculator!)
~Went into her basement
Lastly,we played on Lauren's trampoline.Then we ate dinner(Mac-n-cheese),played a little wii,and at 8:00, she brought me home.I had so much fun!!!!
I hope I can go back soon!!!!!(P.S. Thanks Mauri!!)

Project Wild!!!!!!!!

Today,we had Project Wild.That is where you get to learn about animals and environments.We have learned about elephants,spiders and we just learned about deserts! They are so cool!Deserts have tons of animals and plants living in them including:
~cacti/cactus
~reptiles/amphibians
~insects/spiders
~birds
~tons of mammals!
When Mrs.Lauth got here,she gave us paper and she listed names of some of the cactuses.Some of the names were:Strawberry Cactus,Ice Plant,Teddy Bear Cholla(hee,hee),Pincushion Cactus(ha,ha),and the Old Man Cactus(HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!). We were supposed to draw out what we thought the cactus looked like.Afterwards,we looked at pictures of what the cacti actually looked like and Mrs.Lauth gave us another assignment.We had to go back with our table groups and write down what kind of animals lived in the desert(not Cactuses!).My table group(Alex and Raechel) had so many ideas.We had a lot of animals and as it turns out,we had listed the most animals!Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Since we won,we each got to choose a bookmark.Mine had a panda bear(SO CUTE!!!!!),Raechel's had a turtle(She loves turtles)and Alex had a dog(I don't know why he chose that).
Next we went to lunch.After lunch we saw a video about deserts.It talked about the animals,the land,the people and so much more!!!!I loved it!!!When we got back to the classroom,we made a wheel that showed some of the animals that came out in the day and some animals that came out at night.
I love Project Wild.I wonder what we will learn about next!!!!
