Walk Two Moons

Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech is about two girls named Phoebe and Salamanca (Sal for short). Sal goes to see her mother with her grandparents, and her grandparents ask for a story. She tells them about Phoebe Winterbottom. I like this book, but it is also very sad and there is kissing.

The Best Halloween Ever

The Best Halloween Ever by Barbara Robinson is about a girl named Beth and a boy named Charlie (they are brother and sister but I don't know their last name). It is about how these people whose last name was Herdman ruined Halloween. So they have Halloween at their school and it turns out like real Halloween except better. I liked this book a lot and I finished it in one day.

Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson is about a boy named Jess Aarons and a girl named Leslie Burke. They build this  little house in the woods and Leslie names it Terabithia.  They pretend that it is a magical kingdom where they have many adventures. I had a hard time putting this book down, and when my sister wanted me to go outside with her I wanted to bring it outside, but my mom doesn't like me taking books outside in the winter. I really enjoyed this book at the beginning, but at the end it got sad.

Nathan's present

Today I am going to blog about my brother's birthday present. His birthday present is a pillowcase. Here are some pictures of it:

This is a picture of just the pillowcase

This is a picture of it with the pillow

I got to make it on my sewing machine all by myself. It was really fun. Right when I finished it I had to give it to my brother (even though it was the day before his birthday that I made the pillowcase). He said it was the best pillowcase he ever had.

The new fort

Today mom came into our room and woke us up and told us to go see how much snow there was so Kathryn and I went to our window and looked and the snow almost reached the top of our garden beds. Our mom said that when we finished our school that we could go outside. So Kathryn and I went and did our school. When we finished we went outside and we saw that the old fort that we had made was all covered in snow. So Kitty made a fort for us and I made a little fort by ours for our stuffed dogs.
Well I promised my sister I would go outside and play with her.

My favorite Proverbs

Proverbs 25

More Proverbs of Solomon

 1 These are more proverbs of Solomon, copied by the men of Hezekiah king of Judah:

 2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
       to search out a matter is the glory of kings.

 3 As the heavens are high and the earth is deep,
       so the hearts of kings are unsearchable.

 4 Remove the dross from the silver,
       and out comes material for the silversmith;

 5 remove the wicked from the king's presence,
       and his throne will be established through righteousness.

 6 Do not exalt yourself in the king's presence,
       and do not claim a place among great men;

 7 it is better for him to say to you, "Come up here,"
       than for him to humiliate you before a nobleman.
       What you have seen with your eyes

 8 do not bring hastily to court,
       for what will you do in the end
       if your neighbor puts you to shame?

 9 If you argue your case with a neighbor,
       do not betray another man's confidence,

 10 or he who hears it may shame you
       and you will never lose your bad reputation.

 11 A word aptly spoken
       is like apples of gold in settings of silver.

 12 Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold
       is a wise man's rebuke to a listening ear.

 13 Like the coolness of snow at harvest time
       is a trustworthy messenger to those who send him;
       he refreshes the spirit of his masters.

 14 Like clouds and wind without rain
       is a man who boasts of gifts he does not give.

 15 Through patience a ruler can be persuaded,
       and a gentle tongue can break a bone.

 16 If you find honey, eat just enough—
       too much of it, and you will vomit.

 17 Seldom set foot in your neighbor's house—
       too much of you, and he will hate you.

 18 Like a club or a sword or a sharp arrow
       is the man who gives false testimony against his neighbor.

 19 Like a bad tooth or a lame foot
       is reliance on the unfaithful in times of trouble.

 20 Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day,
       or like vinegar poured on soda,
       is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.

 21 If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
       if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.

 22 In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head,
       and the LORD will reward you.

 23 As a north wind brings rain,
       so a sly tongue brings angry looks.

 24 Better to live on a corner of the roof
       than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

 25 Like cold water to a weary soul
       is good news from a distant land.

 26 Like a muddied spring or a polluted well
       is a righteous man who gives way to the wicked.

 27 It is not good to eat too much honey,
       nor is it honorable to seek one's own honor.

 28 Like a city whose walls are broken down
       is a man who lacks self-control.

My favorite Psalms

Here is my first favorite Psalms:

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

 1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
       he leads me beside quiet waters,

 3 he restores my soul.
       He guides me in paths of righteousness
       for his name's sake.

 4 Even though I walk
       through the valley of the shadow of death,
       I will fear no evil,
       for you are with me;
       your rod and your staff,
       they comfort me.

 5 You prepare a table before me
       in the presence of my enemies.
       You anoint my head with oil;
       my cup overflows.

 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
       all the days of my life,
       and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

Here is my second favorite Psalms:

Psalm 25

Of David.

 1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;

 2 in you I trust, O my God.
       Do not let me be put to shame,
       nor let my enemies triumph over me.

 3 No one whose hope is in you
       will ever be put to shame,
       but they will be put to shame
       who are treacherous without excuse.

 4 Show me your ways, O LORD,
       teach me your paths;

 5 guide me in your truth and teach me,
       for you are God my Savior,
       and my hope is in you all day long.

 6 Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love,
       for they are from of old.

 7 Remember not the sins of my youth
       and my rebellious ways;
       according to your love remember me,
       for you are good, O LORD.

 8 Good and upright is the LORD;
       therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.

 9 He guides the humble in what is right
       and teaches them his way.

 10 All the ways of the LORD are loving and faithful
       for those who keep the demands of his covenant.

 11 For the sake of your name, O LORD,
       forgive my iniquity, though it is great.

 12 Who, then, is the man that fears the LORD ?
       He will instruct him in the way chosen for him.

 13 He will spend his days in prosperity,
       and his descendants will inherit the land.

 14 The LORD confides in those who fear him;
       he makes his covenant known to them.

 15 My eyes are ever on the LORD,
       for only he will release my feet from the snare.

 16 Turn to me and be gracious to me,
       for I am lonely and afflicted.

 17 The troubles of my heart have multiplied;
       free me from my anguish.

 18 Look upon my affliction and my distress
       and take away all my sins.

 19 See how my enemies have increased
       and how fiercely they hate me!

 20 Guard my life and rescue me;
       let me not be put to shame,
       for I take refuge in you.

 21 May integrity and uprightness protect me,
       because my hope is in you.

 22 Redeem Israel, O God,
       from all their troubles!

Well thats all for now.

Our fort!

On tuesday Kathryn and I made our fort. It isnt a very good fort but it works. It hasvery small walls(only about a foot high.) It has very big doors witch are only big holes in the fort. There is a door on each side of the fort.
Yesterday we made little rooms in our fort because we bring a stuffed dog outside every time were in the snow. Then I made a little play room outside of the fort for the dogs. It is made out of sticks.
Well I gotta go bye.
