This weekend is Jr. Cybearguide® appreciation weekend, so it’s a great time to visit buildabearville.com™ to get special gifts! And normally, the Zoo is only open to VIB users in Bearville™, but this weekend it is open to everyone. So make sure to stop by to get your sneak peek!
Monday is Labor Day in the United States, which means many people are off work and kids (like me!) don’t have school! So, what am I going to do with my three-day weekend? I’m going to read! I got a bunch of new books from school and my goal is to get ahead in my reading just in case I get really busy. Plus, the weather forecast says it’s supposed to rain all weekend anyway, and everyone knows curling up with a book is awesome when it’s raining outside.
Talk to ya later!

I just got assigned this HUGE project in class called a country project. Everyone in my class picked a country to make an hour-long presentation and we have three months to get it done. I picked Australia! As you know, I’m an animal lover, and I’ve always been interested in learning more about kangaroos and koalas. Did you know kangaroos and koalas are both in the marsupial family? They both have pouches where they carry their cute little babies! Another cool fact: Australia is also the 6th largest country in the world! It only took me a few minutes to find out this stuff. Imagine how much I’ll know in three months!
Gotta go study!
Talk to ya later!
Sounds of music
August 24, 2011
So, a while back I talked about the band. I was trying to figure out what instrument I wanted to play. And I think I’ve got it: I’ll play the trumpet. I’ve heard it’s hard, but practice makes perfect, so I’m not worried about that. Plus, I’ve played the piano for a while now, so not only can I read music, I know what it takes to sound good.
I also like the trumpet because it’s so versatile (that’s a vocab word from last week), which means it can be used in lots of different ways in lots of different kinds of music. I can be in regular band, and I can also be in jazz band when I get even better. Plus, some rock bands even have trumpets in them. So I can do whatever I want if I play the trumpet!
Talk to you soon!
