So the new term started 'n Sana's finally in my class. She's sittin' right next to me too which is way cool. Mr. Jace's class is on break so I only got Miss Nevy's class 'n we're doin another project on the rainforest. Well...okay, the Amazon river leastways. So far I done the rainforest, the cerrado 'n now the river. I might as well just move to Brazil. It'ud prolly be easier. We're also makin our All About Me boards cause when Miss Jill subbed, she give us homework. Catch her! I ain't never heard'a no sub givin no projects but Miss Nevy made it stick. So now I got more stinkin' art I gotta make. I tole Bren I wnated a new tag for my desk cause all the ones she made me, I'm either a grownup, emo, or a brat, heh heh. So she made me another one -- it's kinda girly, but I like it pretty okay anyhow.
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.

The Harvest Festival in Little Wonders was on Saturday, September 25th. We drug Sana 'n Estella along, 'n we met a buncha kids from school. Bren hopped on the dance floor cause that's just Bren 'n me 'n Estella took on the corn maze. Ain't no one tell us it was gonna be full of spooks! We got through it okay though... Estella totally beat me through by miles. Me 'n Bren were gonna get our picture took in our cookies 'n milk clothes, but we hadda get into our costumes for the costume contest. Bren wore her ole marionette outfit cep she lagged so bad she hadda take off the strings 'n the crosspiece. So ain't no one actually could tell what she was. Least she could move though. I wore my cardboard box angel 'n I coun't do nothin but stand around 'n look innocent. Well... I spect that ain't hurt too much... Christmas ain't too far away after all. Anyhow, Bren 'n Sloane got into some ring around the rosey tree stump game. Bren was so bad lagged, she was walkin' into trees, but she finally won somethin. Miss Kendra picked me as one of the costume contest winners even after Bren pounced me 'n mostly flattened it. So I guess standin 'round lookin cute's got its rewards after all. Bren got in the pumpkin carving contest too so we done ourselves pretty proud for the day, I guess. We sat round the fire after Christov's concert 'n watched Miss Jill's family pick apples, 'n Bren stuffed herself with marshmallows. I got a little bit partied out I guess, cause I started feelin real lousy 'n ended up havin to go home from Mr. Jace's class early. Kenzie got in trouble for swearin again 'n Mr. Jace made her folks come 'n get her 'n take her home. Me 'n Py are workin on an animal field guide with animals we made up ourselves, like Dr. Seuss done. I ain't really like art that much but Bren promised to help me. We got a week off from Mr. Jace's class to work on it too. Anyway, we had a good time pretty much at the festival. Now I just gotta figure out what I'mma do for a Halloween costume this year. I wanna be a gypsy but I ain't been able to find that costume I was too dumb to buy last year when I saw it.
Got my report card from Miss Nevy! All A's!
