Les Miserables

OMG!  Sunday was like the best day ever!!!  It started out with us all going to the Broadway show called Les Miserables, it was really, really good!  The singing and acting was great.  It was too bad though because my little brother Ryan had a bad cold and was coughing a whole lot near the end.  Then after the show was over, my dad randomly decided to take us all out to this really cool tropical restaurant where I got this AMAZING chicken tortilla soup.  It had all of these vegetables like avocado, parsley, carrots, and more!  First time I ever tried it and it was just sooo good.  It's always good to try something new like my parents say.  I guess it's good I took their advice!  Then even another surprise blew our way.  We went out for ice cream in this really cute new shop.  We got a spicy chocolate ice cream mixed with a really good black coffee ice cream.  Yum Yum Yum!  Then after that our bellies were full.  So we went home to watch movies and play video games!  You have to admit that that, was a pretty fun day!

The Real ACT!!

I'm twelve years old and tomorrow morning I am taking a real 5 hour ACT!!  Now, I've been practicing a lot but I'm still really nervous.  On the practice ACT test in the grammer section I got an 18,  In the Math I got a 15 :( in literature I got a 17 and in science I got a 21!  The best I've ever done.  It's good though because my dad is taking us out to Einstein Bagel Bros before we take the test.  I never eat food in the morning or I get really sick.  But in the morning you actually think better because you are energized.  So I am definitely eating.  After the 5 hour test he is taking us out to a sushi restaurant.  MY FAVORITE!!  So I'm pretty happy about that.  I really can't believe it, tomorrow is the big day, so please wish me luck and wish me good scores!!

Thanks

Stars on Ice!

Last night I got a big big surprise.  A few months ago I wanted to see Disney on Ice, but apparently we didn't have the time.  So I guess about a month ago my mom bought the tickets for Stars on Ice without me even knowing,  because it was supposed to be a surprise.  But my sister, Jessica, and my mom kept telling me that we had big plans on Sunday.  I kept guessing anxiously.  "Movie theater? Art museum? Science museum? History museum? WHAT IS IT??"  But they still didn't tell me.  Then finally Sunday was here.  My main guess was probably the art museum because every time I asked if we were going to the art museum my mom and dad smiled really big.  We started driving off to the "art museum" while I sat in the back tired and a little bored.  I mean don't get me wrong I love the art museum but it just wasn't an art museum day I guess...Just like my dad was reading my mind he says"If you don't like it money back guaranteed"(like my dad always said)   I let out a small laugh .  Anyway we pulled up into this big professional sports arena.  "Wait" I said eying everyone carefully "Why are we here?"   A smile broke out on everyone's faces except my little brother, Ryan, who still didn't know where we even were.  Ah ha!  We are going to a hockey game I thought to myself.  We went over to give our tickets to the ticket takers or whatever you call them.  We then got onto an elevator and I asked Jessica,"We are going to a hockey game right?".  "Well" she replied, "you'll have to see when you go and look at the court." Court, I thought?  Are we seeing basketball?  By this point I was totally confused and waited until the elevator doors opened.  We got into the arena and I thought it was a hockey game again, until I realized all of the Stars on Ice pages all sitting neatly in the seats we were about to take.  "MOOOOMMM!!!"  I said aloud happily.  "Stars on Ice?"  she nodded happily.  "I've always wanted to see this!!"  She smiled and nodded towards the ice.  The lights were turning off and some of the best skaters stepped out.  Evan Lysacek, ( he won the men's Olympic Gold.)  Sasha Cohen, (everyone knows who she is) Kurt Browning, Micheal Weiss, Todd Eldridge and many more!!  The show was fascinating.  Especially when they did their triple jumps and even a couple of them did a back flip!  I mean how cool is that!  When the show was over I thanked my mom and dad so many times for taking us there!   "Dad I definitely don't want my money back"  I told him smiling.

Thanks

Spring Break List!

Blue Flower Clip ArtOh my Gosh, I have just realized today that I haven't blogged for a while, and I am so sorry about that!  But this Spring Break has been totally crazy!  We have gone out to the library, we have made arts and crafts, which my dad absolutely abhors!  But it was really cool because my brother Ryan picked out two things, a 3D puzzle penguin, because thats his favorite animal, and also a big army tank.  Typical.  I got two things as well, I got a really cool coloring book ( it says "Great for all ages" this isn't for toddlers don't worry.)  I also got an object that you could paint and then put in your garden.  And Jessica since she is in love with painting as well, she got a huge canvas.  And lets see.. we also went out to lunch and my sister, my brother and I had been playing the video game Little Big Planet for hours!  I know its not very good for you, but come on it was Spring Break!  RELAX!  Anyway I had a great time!  Please comment about your favorite thing you did over Spring Break!
