Best Friday Ever!

Yesterday was SO awesome! First, I got to do Wax Museum, which is where we pick a famous person from North Carolina, dress up as that person, and we act like we are the person and we give a speech about ourselves (the person, not our real selves). It was an hour long, and it was a LOT of fun! Then, we had recess, lunch, and we watched a movie called "A Bugs Life". It was a G-rated Pixar movie. Then I went to afterschool, my mom picked me up after afterschool, and we took a walk down to Carrboro. It was a beautiful night, and we ended up on Franklin St. The closest place to have dinner was "Top Of The Hill" which is a wonderful restaurant, so we went there. We had to wait an hour for our seat, so we walked over at GameStop and looked at some video games. By the time we walked back, our seats were ready. Luckily, that was the night of the UNC game and there were TV's all over. so we got to have delicious hamburgers and fries AND watch the game. I also got a Shirley Temple, which is a fizzy, cherry drink. After we ate, we went to Ben and Jerrys and I got Half Baked Fro-Yo, which is a chocolate ice cream mixed with vanilla ice cream, with fudge and cookie dough stuffed inside. It was DELICIOUS! We walked back to the car, went home, I brushed my teeth, and went to sleep. It was the best friday ever!

Choir Concert

Monday night was the NC Boys Choir concert at the Duke Chapel. There were over 600 people there! When it wasn't our turn, we sat in these pews on the right of the stage. When it was intermission, we came downstairs and talked and had some snacks. Then, we came back upstairs and we sang. I had to sit and do nothing for 5 hours! I sang 5 songs which were: Where Can We Find Peace, Peace Peace Peace, While By My Sheep, How Brightly Shines The Morning Star, and I Saw Three Ships. It only took, like, 5 minutes. I've been saying 5 a lot. When it was over, I went to Panda Express and I got a cookie. My parents were so proud of me. It felt really good. So that's what I did!

10-Mile Bike Ride

Today, I biked all the way from my house, to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, and back. I had such a great time! There were uphills and downhills, but I could handle it. My whole family went to UNC Campus and also biked around Morehead Planetarium. It was SOOO fun! The doughnuts were really good, too. I was really scared at first. But then, I did it and it was amazing! My mom and dad were very proud of me. I am going to do it again!

Billy Elliot

Last Saturday, I saw the best musical EVER! It was Billy Elliot and it was so wonderful! The theater was really cool and so was the show. It had great songs, dancing, backgrounds, and everything! They also had these cookies that were really good. My brother, Jake, thought it was kinda loud and didn't like it as much as me. I thought that was the best show ever! It was also really funny. I hope when I go to Kansas City for Thanksgiving, I can see it with my Grandma!

Boy's Choir

Last Tuesday I got in to the North Carolina Boy's Choir! I was so happy because they picked me and some other kids out of the 200 kids they saw audition! I thought it was really fun. We also played outside---at night! We sang some songs like "This Is My Country" and "Alleliua". In fact, those were the only songs we learned. The teacher was nice and I think I made some new friends! We got these papers about how to pose when you're singing & sitting when you're singing. We circled who were sitting and standing correctly. Then we sang practice notes just to get warmed up. At the end, we got Hi-C and Utz Potato Chips for a snack! My Mom and Dad were both very impressed and proud. I'm glad I auditioned for Boy's Choir! Oh, and when we go to concerts and stuff, we get to go all over the United Staes, Europe, and Canada! The kids last year got to stay overnight and went to a battleship, the beach, and lots of other places! It looks like a whole lot of fun!

2 stories

Today I did my best run ever! Usually, when I run, I run out of breath, start wheezing, and feel really sore. But today, I didn't do any of that stuff! I did SOOOO much better. I even felt better. It was absolutely awesome!

I also did auditions for North Carolina Boy's Choir and I think I have a great singing voice but I don't mean to brag. Anyway, I just thought that I had a great time at the auditions. All I did was just sing "Row, Row, Row Your Boat", Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do and say la La LA La la. And it was very fun.

My Baby Cousin, Clyde

Yesterday, My aunt had a baby! We were actually waiting for a month for the baby to come. I was VERY excited for the baby. I am so happy because on Thanksgiving, we get to see the baby and hold him! I am keeping that thought in my head. I got a picture of him in email and I thought he was just the most precious thing ever. I loved him with all my heart. Now I will have 3 cousins!
