On my way!

I'm on my way with Bachan and Jichan to see my cousin Ellie! Sometimes I call Ellie my sister because it would be fun if she was. Mommy and Daddy are sure going to miss me while I'm gone. I might call them if I get bored. That would make them happy. I don't think I'll get bored though.

My owie

On Father's Day I went on a bike ride with Daddy. We borrowed our friend's bike. It is a big bike with two extra seats in the back. It was really fun.

And then, somehow, I don't really know how. I got my foot stuck in the wheel. It was a few seconds before I realized that it really hurt. Really bad. I started screaming and crying. Daddy quickly got my foot untangled and then biked back. But on the way I saw lots of my friends out. I was able to say Hi to everyone and tell them that I got hurt. "Waaahhhh!!!! Hi, Grace! waahhhhhh!!! I hurt my foot! Waaahhh!! Hi Serafina! Waaaahhh!!!"

Yesterday I stayed home from Summer Camp because I couldn't walk well or wear shoes. I'm much better today and am able to go back to summer camp. I still have bruises and scrapes though. And it still hurts. But I'm better.

Happy Father's Day!

I love you! I'm so happy you're my daddy.

First thing in the morning

Me: Do you know what's the most important thing I do in the morning?

Mommy: No. What?

Me: To get my eye boogers out of my eyes!

Mommy: Why is that?

Me: 'Cause if I don't get the eye boogers out, I'll still be able to talk, walk, and smell, but my eyes won't be able to wake up for one, two, or three minutes.

My latest trick

After a bit of practice, I can now balance a spoon on my nose!

Me on Market Street

I like going downtown.

Daddy, Mommy, and me

Last week we went to a street. It wasn't a regular street. It was called Indie Mart. It was a walking street with lots of tables with people selling stuff. Like little shops. And there was a photobooth. We took a family photo. Fun! But my favorite part was digging through the suitcase of fun dressup stuff.

What's white with yellow on top?

Snow with dog pee!

Tomorrow is my last day...

...of first grade! I learned a lot. I read lots of chapter books now.

I know what 5 times 7 is. I know that germs on my hands can grow into many more germs in a Petri dish in one week.

I did so many fun things this school year.

Halloween school parade:

We built (and ate) Gingerbread houses:

I saw Chinese New Year lions dance at our school:

We had a Valentine's Day party!

A nice man from the Opera visited the class and helped us put on a show.

We learned about many countries for United Nations Day. It was actually two days! Our classroom was Ethiopia. They grow coffee there. Mommy and Daddy should visit Ethiopia since they love coffee so much.

Last week we had our Junior Olympics! I like the obstacle course. It's tricky!

On Tuesday my class spent the night at the Marin Headlands. We are the only first graders in the school to go on an overnight trip. Without parents! We hiked, learned new songs, and stayed up real late. I became a member of the Hard Core club. That's where you eat an entire apple -- including the core! There's a special way to do it. I can teach you if you ask nicely and bring me an apple.

And tomorrow we're going to have a party with the other first graders and kindergartners. And then after school the Taco Truck is going to come! And then after that I get to go get ice cream. With two scoops!

I had so much fun in first grade. I wonder if second grade will be just as fun. But I can wait. Because I want it to be summer vacation!
