We had soccer practice on Wednesday. Man, I love soccer! We got the coolest coach on the planet. Wednesday we hadda run all over these balance beams 'n jump all down em without fallin off. I was pretty good at that, but I got knocked off a couple times 'n walked off the end. Then she put up all these giant skinny pillars 'n we hadda jump onto each one 'thout fallin off em. I made it through them on the second try. In fact, I got done so fast Coach ain't even notice 'n she asked me what was wrong when she saw me sittin on the ground waitin for folks. Man, I'd stay at school through most anything just to play soccer, I think.
Mom woke up a little while 'n paid the rent. Guess she's got some stuff goin on 'n she might ain't be here for a few months. She left us each a toybox 'n made me promise I ain't break nothin' or make her regret it. I was hopin she'd got me a slingshot 'n she sure enough did! And a diary cep I coun't get em out outta the box. So I just open it 'n look at my slingshot. Bren got a ladybug pet she named Spot. For a girl that's as creative as she is, you'd think she'd come up with better names for stuff, but she ain't -- she still calls her bunny "Bunny." She got some milk 'n cookies too. It's nice to get presents, but I miss our mom anyhow.
Friday was soccer again. Coach Jill made this big maze thing 'n put us each in a room. Well, it was kinda like one room in the middle for offense, then defense rooms comin off each side of it, then the goal rooms in the back of the defense rooms. We done all kindsa games in there. Me 'n Durga was orange. First we hadda race to see how many soccer balls each team could get. Another team won that cause they had three folks, 'n everyone else had only two. Then we hadda get our own two orange balls back in our goal -- Durga 'n me tied with the Pink team for that one. We done this other one where we had one soccer ball 'n we all hadda try to get it. I won that one *grin* I sure ain't think I would neither, but I grabbed it 'n run. Then we had like twenty soccer balls out 'n we was sposed to keep Romeo from scorin' but he totally stomped us flat. It was a pretty awesome practice 'n if you ain't there, you totally missed out.
Got my report card from Miss Nevy! All A's!

Anyhow, so on Saturday, Mr. Jace took us to these big caverns. They totally rocked. We got there 'n stood around gettin ready to go in. We's on this platform like a million feet high. Half of us went with some lady chaperone 'n the other half I was in went with Mr. Jace. Py was in my group, 'n Jayden 'n Daisy 'n some other folks. We hadda walk down all these bridges into this giant cave that looked like a big ole demon. We walked down the falls 'n we ain't see it til later but they was haunted by this lady ghost. Then we hadda walk on all these narrow paths 'n down by this big river that looked like blood. I ain't know if it really was, but Py said the plants growin there were meat eaters. Since they were all way bigger'n me, we stayed pretty much away from em. Just in case. Jayden was all goin nuts, leapin 'n flippin around like crazy. She climbed up all the way to the top of the cliffs 'n I figured that'ud be the end of her any second, but it ain't somehow. I gotta hand it to her -- she got nerve even if she is straight up crazy.
So we go down these weeny log bridges 'n then over these real skinny tightrope wires. Ain't I mention this school rocks? It's a good thing my mom ain't there cause she'd of had a stroke 'n fell clean off em. Thought I might myself, but I made it okay. We went down on the river 'n then through this real creepy cave. Cep when we come out the other side... well I figure we took a wrong turn somewhere cause it was like walkin out in Wonderland. It was rainin flowers, the waterfall was purple 'n the trees were pink tie dye. Turned out we'd stumbled into Woodstock, but Mr. Jace made us go back into the caves. We met up with the other group 'n they said they saw dinosaurs 'n giant spiders. So then Mr. Jace give us some time to go lookin round on our own. Py 'n me went back up the trail. I took my baseball bat just in case. We saw the ghost in the waterfall 'n hiked up to the top of some other falls too. We ain't see no giant spider but we went into this canyon 'n stumbled into a giant nest of cobras. We got outta that 'n fell into a huge pile of spiders. Maybe they ain't giant but they was plenty big enough for me. After that I fell in the river 'n near to drowned. We were gonna try to hike way up to this other tightrope bridge, but Mr. Jace called us back 'n said it was time to go back to base camp. So we done that 'n had sandwiches 'n sodas. Then we all sat around the bonfire while Mr. Jace tole us these real creepy stories. It was way fun. I hope he tells October in the Chair sometime -- that's one'a my favorites. We was sposed to stay all night 'n sleep with our rice rally teams but everyone ended up goin home finally. It was still the rockingest class I ever had though.
Oh, 'n red's winnin the rice rally right now. Yeah red team!

We learned all about honeybees one week. We hadda read a book about em in class 'n we talked about it. Tristan found this thing bout these honeybees buildin' a hive all up in a church steeple. No foolin'! It was like 75 feet tall 'n the church only found it cause there was honey rollin' down the walls inside one day. Guess when the Bible talked 'bout the land of milk 'n honey, it ain't kiddin! They hadda kill all them bees though, which is real bad, cause I ain't never hear of no endangered insect before but if there is one, I guess it's the honeybee. They're in a whole lotta trouble cause of pesticides 'n other stuff 'n if we lose em, we're the ones that's in a whole lotta trouble. Honeybees help all the crops like oranges 'n peaches 'n strawberries 'n stuff so I reckon we better shape up 'n take care of em. Too bad the bees in that church ain't killer bees instead. Now there's one I spect we could do without.
We come in another day 'n played Bingo. No, wait. We played BEEngo, which was way cooler. All our cards had diff'rent honeybee pictures 'n Mr. Jace called out letters 'n pictures 'n we put honeycomb chips on em. So while we was playin', he tole us all kindsa stuff 'bout the diff'rent kinds of bees. There's even this Grim Reaper bee that gets ridda all the dead honeybees. I sure ain't like that job. Fact, I ain't never wanna be no honeybee cause the boys give the queen babies 'n then they die, 'n the queen sits around 'n lays babies all day, like thousands 'n thousands of em. And the workers gotta be on brat baby bee duty alla time, so I figure there ain't too many good jobs in a honeybee hive 'n I'm pretty glad I'm a girl. Man, them baby bees is UGLEE. They come poppin' outta their lil cells like one of them Whack-A-Mole things. Maybe I'd be a brat bee worker if they'd gimme a big mallet 'n I could whack em on the heads. Anyway, I ain't come close to winnin'. Spect my card was broke or somethin'.
On Friday we hadda bee day in class, 'n we all hadda come dressed up like honeybees. I felt pretty stupid cause when I got there ain't no one dressed up but me. So I was real glad when folks changed 'n then I ain't the only one in a honeybee costume. Lola had this real awesome hair with big holes in it 'n inside was all kindsa food 'n stuff...sorta like a honeybee storin' food in their hives. Cep hers was in her hair. It was cool. Ethan come dressed up as a rabbit, so I spect he got the wrong memo 'n thought it was Easter. We made honeycomb jars 'n honey pots for people that was special to us. I made mine for my mom, since she was awful steamed bout that slurpee 'n I felt bad for makin' her worried. Cause I love my mom lots so I gave her mine. Pygar made one for me, 'n that was awful nice cause ain't no kid never made me nothin' before or give me nothin'. I put it on my desk at home so's I can remember to do nice things for folks 'cause maybe ain't no one never give them nothin' either.
I got more to say but I guess I talk too much. So I'mma put it in a second post. And someday there'll be all my pictures soon's I hogtie Bren into scrappin em for... *cough* I mean... soon's I scrap em 'n put em on here.

Anyhow, Coach put us all on this big block 'n told us we're sinkin' and we gotta work together not to fall off it. So it starts movin' 'n shrinkin' 'n openin' up holes right under us 'n stuff. That was some pretty crazy stuff but ain't no one helpin' no one. I fell off finally 'n so I watched 'n mostly kids was just shovin' other kids off so they could stay on. Which's pretty much all you can do, I guess. If it were really sinkin' that's what I'd be doin', cep I'd let Bren ride piggyback prolly cause I ain't gonna shove her overboard. So Coach said we all flunked, but it ain't make no sense to me nohow. She tole us we hadda come up with somethin' else. So we come up with this idea where we all stand on each other's heads. Now there's 'bout fifteen or so of us, 'n we ain't all there that day but there was enough. It took us a real long time but we started pilin' one on top of the other til we looked like this:
Coach was buildin' stuff 'n helpin us cause you can't just jump on someone's head from the ground when they're five or six folks up. So someone sneezed or somethin' cause half of us fell down 'n we hadda do it again, but that was okay cause we sure 'nuff did! So I'm standin' there yellin to help folks as ain't up there yet, but really I'm thinkin' Coach is pretty much the coolest teacher I ever met cause she's the only grown up I know cep my Aunt Bel who lets kids do cool stuff like make a fifteen-kid stack. Aunt Bel let me get shot outta a cannon once and that was real fine cep my ears rang for a while. I'm also thinkin' I hope my mom ain't walk by cause she won't like it near so much as Coach, and she'll likely have a heart attack right there on the sidewalk 'n die, and there ain't be nothin' I can do about it cause I'm holdin' four people up 'n standin' on another eight. I figure Miss Nevy got more sense, cause she was over there watchin' but right about the time I think that, she starts cheerin' us on. So OSE's definitely the coolest school I ever seen cause all them teachers is straight-on-up crazy.
Anyhow, I got home from soccer 'n that's when Mom jawed my whole backside off for dumpin' slurpee on Sloane, but I already tole that story, so I'm goin' to bed. Someone tell Bren to turn out the lights...

So Bren 'n me was at school 'n our mom came to get us. That was real nice cause mostly she ain't can come pick us up too much. Anyhow, she was talkin' 'bout how she needs to clean out her closet. Well I ain't care too much 'bout that cause maybe Bren's neat as a pin...and she is...but I sure ain't. So I was real dumb 'n tole mom that Bren was gonna clean mine. Note: If you're ever plannin' to swindle your sister into doin' your half of a job, you ain't oughta tell your mom first. So Bren said no way 'n I tole her I'd pay her... Went about like this after that:
McKennah: I'll pay you!
Brenna: cept for how much you will?
McKennah looks in her pockets
Mom: you let her buy you like that?
McKennah: what? It ain't my homework!
McKennah: twelve lindens...
McKennah: the tore off part of my report...
McKennah: and some lint?
McKennah: oh and half a cookie
Mom looks at the blue sky with her hands on her hips
Brenna: cept for I will only like a WHOLE cookie m'kenna!
Mom: you girls are too much
Mom: how about we ALL do inventory and I'll have cookies and milk out?
Mom: and that's more than ONE cookie Bren
McKennah: aww man
McKennah: you messed it up mom!
Mom: i don't know... I get to spend time with BOTH of my girls and bren gets more cookies...
I don't see a downside to this
Mom: do you bren?
Mom: one point for mom!
McKennah: ain't no fun livin with someone who can out bribe you...
Mom: you'll learn to love it
Sometimes life just kicks you real hard in the bum...
Anyhow, you're prolly sayin' that ain't sound like no trouble, 'n you're right, it ain't. Real trouble came later, when I was back at school...
It was Friday, spellin' day, 'n near's I can figure, ain't no one else like spellin' no more'n I do. Audra come up with spelling testitis, which near's I can tell, means she ain't wanna take her test. Either that or it makes her sick. Heck, I been gettin' that since spellin' was invented, I think. Anyhow, mostly all the kids had it, but Miss Nevy's a tricky one. You gotta watch out for her. So we hadda take our spellin' test anyhow. I spect if you die 'n you go to the bad place, you gotta take spellin' tests every day for your first year or two. Glad I ain't goin' there.
We went to lunch, 'n I guess everyone was gettin' crazy cause they hadda take the test, cause Audra 'n some other folks start throwin' stuff at each other. Now my mom found out 'bout them colorin' on the walls in Bren's class 'n she tole me if I did that, she'd drag me back up to school with a bucket of Comet 'n a scrubbin' brush. So I figure, I ain't stupid 'n I ain't gonna draw on no walls, but I ain't really want no other trouble neither. So I moved cause that's sposed to be the grownup thing, right?
Well...grownups ain't never have no fun, 'n they sure ain't gotta go to school with other kids. Cause I sit down with Mookie, 'n Sloane chucks her whole slurpee at Mookie from clear 'cross the other side of the room. I dunno where Miss Nevy was, but she sure wasn't payin' no attention, cause you'da hadda be deaf 'n blind not to see that thing comin'. Sloane ain't got the best aim in the world, so she missed Mookie by about two feet. Cep she ain't miss me, 'n she hit me square in the head 'n messed my brand-new shirt all up.
Well...sometimes you just gotta stick up for yourself. Ain't no one else did nothin' so I offered her a knuckle sandwich, but she just burped real loud 'n laughed. That point, I was real mad, so I took that slurpee 'n went over there 'n chucked it all down her front. Served her right, too. She's awful lucky I ain't dump her off that stool on the floor too, but I was tryin' to be good. I even went back 'n sat down, cep Mookie threw a cookie at me then. Spect anything mighta happened then, cep Miss Nevy woke up 'n figured out we was revvin' up for some sorta knockdown. She got real mad at alla us... the whole class even, 'n made us miss recess. We hadda all go back to class and sit with our heads down.
I figured my life was pretty well over 'n I might as well get my stuff packed up 'n find me some hermit cave in the Wait or somethin' but it ain't work out too bad. Sloane 'n me are fine friends now, 'n ain't no one else too mad... mainly I guess they liked me fine for keepin things interesting. So us kids all got stuff worked out, 'n I ain't know why them grownups all got their underroos in a bunch cause they sure do. If you think Miss Nevy was mad, you shoulda saw my mom. Figured maybe there'd be a hole in the roof from where she went clean through it 'n I spect there is cause it rained the other day 'n it leaked all in my bedroom. So that's prolly why. I can't figure them folks out... I mean, I ain't even really got to fightin'. I ain't hit nobody or nothin'. I guess when you get old, weird stuff happens to your brain 'n makes things all complicated 'n fussy. Spect I ain't never growin' up then.
I made this for Mr. Jace's class for my art project.

I been practicin' real hard. Even my mom took me to practice, cause I'm pretty okay at offense, but I'm a lousy goalie. That's way harder. I only stopped it a coupla times, but that's still better than none, right?
We had a picnic in Mr. Jace's class. That was okay, I guess. I sat with Pygar. He's my study partner, and he's real cool. Even if he did bring some green stuff casserole thing to eat, and dump soda on his fries. But I like him real good anyhow, cause he's cool to everyone and he makes sure ain't no one feel left out. I like that cause I gotta work on it some more; I ain't like no one to feel that way 'round me, and I ain't like feelin' that way too much myself. Plus he's pretty funny. I got a picture of Mr. Jace standin' on the dinner table. Any picnic where the grownups is standin' around on the table's gotta be pretty fun, right?
Friday, August 27, 2010
Miss Jill had an emergency, and that's why she was late. But she got there. We played 3 on 3 first and I scored a goal. It was a walk-in, but it still counted. Then we played all together and that was a lot harder. I dunno if I did so well in that part. I got benched, but I ain't sure that means too much, cause she put me back in later. I prolly din't get on but there's gonna be a lotta kids on the team. She's prolly gonna make two teams. I guess that'ud be better than nothin. I could practice at least so then I could get on the first team later.
On Tuesday, I couldn't spend the whole time in Mr. Jace's class, but we ain't do too much nohow. Yesterday, we talked about food, and he put out all this food'n then took it away. Then he tole us we're gonna be fightin' world hunger this year, which is pretty awesome cause we're just kids in a class in a crazy world ain't no one but us understand. It's awful cool when we can do stuff that makes a difference in the other world. We're playin' every day for rice at this site here:

I got two classes: miss Nevy's class and mister Jace's class.
Miss Nevy's class ain't too bad cep she keeps givin' us homework. I hadda write in my notebook, but I already had this one. So that's okay. I ain't mind writin 's long as no one ain't fuss about my spellin'. Course, we got spellin' every week, catch her. We hadda have our first class in the park, but last night we got to be in our real classroom. I got to pick my seat and I got to sit in the back. We got a giant Hobbes in our classroom too. Calvin'n Hobbes is way cool.

Thursday, August 5, 2010
So I hadda go register us for school 'cause Mom was asleep, and well...would you give Bren a thousand lindens and 'spect her to do it? I din't think so. I got there SIX HOURS EARLY. I figured the sim'd get full 'cause these folks makin' this school's the same as the ones who make summer camp, and that filled up in an hour this year. So I figured after missin' camp for the second year in a row, Bren'ud have a world-class meltdown if she din't get to go to school at least. Anyhow, it's good I did get there so early 'cause sure'nuff, that sim got awful full. There was like...seventy people there by the time they got ready to start! And more that was tryin' to get in and couldn't. I figure there were prolly a hunderd folks or so tryin' to get in to sign their kids up.
So we made a big ol' line, and that was sorta the pits 'cause I got stuck in the back. And then I couldn't move at all, cause I thought about the sim gettin' full, but I ain't never thought about crashin'! So sure'nuff I did crash, and I couldn't get back on for nothin'! Thought after all that waitin', sheesh, I still ain't gonna get to school. That'd be okay for me, 'cause Mom can't make me go if I can't get in, right? But Bren...well, she's real sweet till she don't get what she want, then you better look out 'cause that's like ... nuclear-level meltin'.
Turned out it wasn't even me! All us kids crashed the sim prolly three times, then we went on and took out the whole server. Which was pretty funny 'cause then all the kids started makin' jokes about the lag and takin' out the server and stuff. Yeah. We're just that good. So don't invite us all over for dinner, 'cause if we can do that to a server, then your house sure ain't tough enough. So Miss Jill hadda call the Lindens, and I spect they weren't too happy to get their dinner interrupted, 'cause they couldn't even fix that ol' server. They hadda give us a bran' new one. But they did it real fast. I bet they were eatin' Mexican or somethin', and they really din't want it to get too cold. And there was this one lady kept screamin' and hollerin' that she hadda get her kids registered 'cause she couldn't stand 'em around the house no more, and if they din't go to school, she was gonna go crazy. She tole us somethin' 'bout mudpies in the bedroom, but I din't think that was so bad. Maybe it's a pretty good idea even! I'd do it, if I had a bedroom.
So anyhow, I got back in cep we hadda take off all our prims and stuff, so we were all goin' around bald and barefoot. Cep some kids din't want to 'cause I guess they get too worried 'bout other folks seein' em bald. I tole em that was pretty stupid anyhow 'cause the lag was so bad we couldn't even see our own selves, so ain't no one gonna know they don't got hair on. Rory and Heath figured if they hadda be bald, they'd be aliens instead so that was pretty fun. Plus their mom could prolly find em in the crowd real easy since they was the only pink and blue kids there. And I was still at the end of the line, cep then we found out registration was out front anyhow. So it turned out pretty good 'cause I was at the end right by the door! So then I was like...the third person in line. And that was pretty good too 'cause Bren can't read so she's gotta be in Miss Kendra's class, but I'm goin' in Miss Nevy's class. So I hadda stand in two lines, so it's pretty good that the first one was short.
Bren's gonna try out for cheerleadin' and maybe learn how to swim if Mom can let her near the pool 'thout havin' a stroke. I ain't goin' on no swim team, if I gotta wear floaties in front of everyone, no way. Mostly I guess I'd like to play soccer, so maybe I'll do that. Hopefully, there'll be some cool kids at school. Since I HAFTA go, it'ud be better if I can get some friends in my class. Maybe it'll be okay.
