Yesterday, Kirby and I made soap. I wanted to make flower-shaped soap but he only wanted
to make robot-shaped soap. Since we were in my house we made flower-shaped soaps. Kirby made a lot of green and brown flowers. He is so crazy there are no brown flowers in nature. Bees aren’t going to visit brown flowers? Bees like pretty flowers like I made, pinks, purples, and blues.
Today is wash day. We have a very, very, old washing machine it looks like a rusty robot. A long time ago, my dad found the washing machine under some hay in the barn. He said to my mom “we should reuse this machine” and she said “yes we should” so he cleaned and repaired the old washing machine. The noisy, cranky windmill near the barn makes the washing machine run.
After washing, we hang our clothes outside on a rope on the second floor porch to dry which makes the clothing smell so fresh and clean!

Four Scarlet Tanagers! We saw the four, cute birds this weekend when my friends were planting trees and grasses by the open field. Kirby, Isabel and I saw the four Scarlet Tanagers land one at a time in the trees around us. I had my binoculars so we could see the cute birds in the tree very close up. So quickly the cute, orange birds visited us and so quickly they disappeared like flashes of fire into the forest.

I have some really cute shoes my dad bought me for school. I don’t like to wear shoes but these shoes are very cool. These cute, pink shoes are cool because they are only made out of recycled materials. if you plant the shoes in the dirt they are will disappear because they are biodegradable and they will become beautiful flowers in your garden!
This afternoon Mildred and Nellie invited me to go on a picnic with them in the forest. Mildred made a lovely pasta salad, and Nellie brought vegetable chili. They made the food from what they found in the forest, except the pasta, and chili peppers,
and I gave them some of that and our home grown, tomatoes.
