Hi! It's me again. Sorry I couldn't write for the past few days. I was busy with piano lessons and such.
Today I had to stay home from school because I was sick. I had a sore throat and a very very plugged up nose. It stank, but I got to hang out with my Mom, so that was cool.
I'm involved in a program (before anybody asks, yes, it's legal) called Lego League. 1st grade to 3rd grade is Junior First Lego League (JFLL), 5th and 6th grade is First Lego League (FLL), 7th and up is FTC. They're kinda like ranks. I'm in FLL. In FLL, you program a Lego robot using the computer to do different "missions". There is a big table set out and it has different missions (or tasks) for your robot to do. Each mission you complete will get you a certain number of points. At the end of the competition, whoever has the most points wins. It's super fun!
My Dad and I haven't watched any Batman episodes lately because we always need to go somewhere. It's almost as bad as May, when I have Softball, my brother has Baseball, I have piano lessons, my brother has guitar lessons, we both have homework, and May is when all the school concerts happen. Plus, someone always has a haircut or doctor's appointment on the busiest day of the week.
My brother just walked by, singing, "________ is a weirdo!" completed with the backround music of snapping fingers. (By the way, the ________ is for my name. No way I'm putting my name on the web)!
Now my brother is going to his first basketball practice of the season. The house just got a whole lot quieter.
Well, see you later! (But not literally). Bye!

Hello. This is the first blog I've ever written! I like it so far. (I know I won't think so when it's a busy night and I don't want to blog, but for now it's okay). I don't really know this whole "blogging" business, but I think normal blogs are pretty long.
It's been a really rainy day today. It rained all night Wednesday night and all day today. I'm surprised that the roads aren't overflowing with water.
I'm a middle school student, and I just moved up from elementary. At first, the middle school seemed impossible to navigate, but it's really just a three-floored rectangle.
Luckily, I'm on the second-floor. The basement and upstairs are either really cold or really hot, but the middle floor is just perfect. I'm also lucky to have 2nd lunch. 1st lunch is way too early, and by the time 3rd lunch got around, I'd be so hungry I'd have a stomach ache, and then I couldn't eat anything! I'm on the middle floor and have the middle lunch of the middle school. I'm very middle.
Good news: I'm in enrichment!
Bad news: I have to miss library and computers for the rest of the year!
Enrichment is actually kind of fun, though. today we went on the Chrome Books and learned how to use Google docs and Google Classroom. Google Classroom just came out this past August, so I'm glad that we're all "teched up". Wow, that was cheesy.
My dad and I have this thing going where we watch all the old 60's "Batman" episodes. Today, Batman was in the Batcave, and using his Batcompass, he said, "It appears that North North Eastern of the batcave is in a North North Easternly direction." Fortunately, it was supposed to be cheesy.
My school has a band program, and I play the trumpet. I took lessons for piano for 4 years, and I still do, but now I'm learning this, too. I can't make a perfect sound, but I'm working on it.
I have a cute dog named Sally. She's a mix of a Spaniel, Labrador, and Retriever, and she's the weirdest but cutest dog ever. Seriously. She's afraid of a housefly, but not the lawnmower.
Well, I should probably wrap this up. Thanks for reading my first blog! Bye!
