::Emmerson:: Spring Room Purge

Posted 2017-02-19 17:33:20
I couldn't find a coloring book I had been using so I begged Mom to help me find it. She came in my room and sat in the middle of the room and folder her arms and refused to help. My room was a MESS! 5 garbage bags later and Mom's magic and my room looks amazing! I can find all my toys. My clothing fits on the shelfs and hangers. I willingly parter with [...]

::Breighton:: Spring Cleaning

Posted 2017-02-19 17:27:53
Everything in my room had exploded and Mom said enough is enough. She spent a good chunk of the day cleaning and purging our closets and rooms. I was shocked at the end. She didn't really throw much out other than trash, clothes that don't fit and a few piles of scrap type paper I had collected.

::Emmerson:: Classes at Weedon and Brooker Creek

Posted 2017-02-19 17:17:42
We went to a class and learned about salt ponds and how marine life has to be able to adapt to high changes in salinity and water temperature.  We collected water samples and took readings of salinity and temperature. using the cool tool for salinity. The next day we went with Grandma to Brooker Creek and attended a class on Invasive Plants. We learned about the importance of planting natives and avoiding exotics. At the extension office in the [...]

Mom, my friend and I gave parts of a presentation of a good vs bad demonstration. The crowd wasn't that big but what we taught was important for 4H.  

::Breighton:: Weedon Island Salt Pond HIke

Posted 2017-02-17 16:57:16
Today we went to Weedon Island for a Salt Pond Hike. We got to take water samples from the pier and a few ponds. We used a cool collection contraption. We checked salinity, water temperature and turbidity. Turbidity was silly to check since we could see the bottom so we abandoned that measurement. We compared the ponds and their circulation to see how life would survive. the Most shallow pond had the highest salinity. I think [...]

::Emmerson:: Having Fun and Keeping VERY busy

Posted 2017-02-17 14:35:18
B and I are working on new sewing projects. I spent a while designing before I started cutting and sewing. We also got a cool Mail Order Mystery in the mail.  I had a lot of fun finding clues and decoding the cipher to get our next clue. We will get a letter a week in the mail to solve our mystery. B and I baked cupcakes for archery for Valentine's Day. I made cinnamon and B [...]

::Breighton:: Monarch Butterfly

Posted 2017-02-17 07:41:53
We have been watching and waiting all week. It took 2 weeks and 3 days, which is slightly longer than the last group. This beauty emerged today. It quickly stretched out and dried its wings and then flew away to the great migration!

::Breighton:: Catching up

Posted 2017-02-15 07:33:47
We went to the state fair last week. We pigged out on donuts as usual! They are SO yummy! We hung out in the 4-H area for a while and played fun games. GaGa Ball is my favorite! I loved the history of candy display this year. They even had a loggerhead turtle made of jellybeans! We supported the forest division again. No trees this year! Sunday was a lazy day and we worked on our sewing projects. This week we also got [...]

::Breighton:: Imagine That... More Archery

Posted 2017-02-13 07:26:50
Dad and Mom got new bows this weekend. So they took over the range! We also have some nice new bag targets to shoot at! And bow hooks on the fence! Dad's bow is super cool and really fast, I think 330feet per second?! We think we have figured out my issues. My peep was sliding so Mom retied it. Also my sight finally broke. I got a new sight this week and am working on getting it [...]
