Why I'm glad a blog can't die

See, I TOLD you when I started that a blog would be safer for me to have than for me to have a pet.  Because I can get bored with it and forget about it for a while and it doesn't die!  Of course, I didn't just get bored...

Things I've done since the last post:

-I've seen an elk.
-I've eaten black bear meat--it was pretty good!
-Saw a sign for "rat cheese."  Don't ask.
-Walked in a bamboo forest.
-Went over a waterfall, three times, but only fell in twice.
-Ate fudge
-Watched a really cool outdoor play with some neat dances
-Named my chipmunks' babies: Beth the Barbarian, Wooton the Basset, Connie the Awesome, and Stephen the Comedian.  They were cute.  But now they are growing up so I don't see them as much anymore.

So you have to guess where we went on vacation!  

I saw the poll results.  Whoever is going to ALASKA needs to tell me all about it.  That would be so cool.  And sorry for those who are having vacation at home.  And even more to those going NOWHERE.  But my mom says that NOWHERE can also say, "Now Here".  Vacation isn't where you go, it's what you do and who you are with, and feeling happy about it.

So if you can't go anywhere and even if your parents can't plan anything fun, you could plan something fun for them.  What are some of your ideas?  Post them in the comments.

That's all!


Con mas palabras de espanol (I can't figure out how to get the little squiggly thing above the n)


So today I thought I would throw in a few Spanish words here and there and see if you can figure out what they significa.  Mom says the grammar isn't all correct, and some of the spelling might be off--that's Spanglish for you.

Let's see...

The nueva album sounds really cool.  I'm glad the Odyssey personas didn't put in any of the REALLY embarassing stuff.  I call it reality radio, but the shows aren't completely true to vida.  For example, they included  all the clips of Eugene running from the birds, and that really cool mariachi band that played in our front yard, in album cincuenta y uno.  Some stuff that didn't make in into the album would be Olivia's fights with Mom about the peanut mantequilla and gum (you don't want to know), or Connie tripping and knocking the Mayor into the fountain.  Stuff like that; and even more that I can't even mention if I want to grow up to be a famous footbal player someday--or even if I want to grow up at all!  If something doesn't help the story they want to tell, they don't include it.  Of course, Matthew's voz is changed just a little bit.  It sounds a little lower.  Who knows how long he'll last on the show.  Poor muchachos--they always lose their AIO voice parts when they grow up!

In other news, I'm so excited about the "Ventilador del techo" people showing up here any day.  Matthew especially wants to meet Phil, Ethan, and James the Intern.  How many semanas do you think it will take them to find us?  We could just tell them, but that would ruin all the fun.  

Gracias for voting in the last poll, but it didn't work.  When the poll was closed I went to my padre and said, "Dearest Father, how may I assist you today?  I want to do whatever makes YOU happy."  HE said, "Well, thank you very much Camilla.  You can help me by weeding the garden.  BUT: we still are not going to Bermuda."  He had seen the poll.  Dad's are muy inteligente.  

So we're not going to Bermuda.  But I would still like to know where YOU are going to take your vacaciones

Until the next time I get bored enough to escribir... 

My Life Last Week

First: Matthew posted on my blog.  :(

Tests at school.  I think I did okay, but I'm really SLOW at Math.
Soccer.  We won!  Afterwards we had ice cream at Whit's End.  Connie was trying to get Whit to let her cut his hair.  He didn't.

School.  I decided to stay really still on our back porch with seeds in my hand and see if the chipmunks would come to me.  But it took FOREVER and they wouldn't come.  After five minutes I gave up.

Olivia tried to write a song on the guitar.  Muy mal.  I wore earplugs. 

My ears were sore.  The last day of school!  We had a field day and I won the sprinting race.  Then some friends came over and we played soccer.

We got a package from my Aunt Rosalita, with a thank you note, pictures from her honeymoon, and some Mexican candy that is Mom's favorite.  I still like Snickers better.  Mom was very surprised.  

Sunday School and church.  Mr. Whitaker taught about the parable of the sower.  And I quoted my 20th verse:  "And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6  I like that verse.  "He" means God, and that is neat that He is doing something good in me.

We are having a fiesta tonight.  Well, just grilling out.  But I think the Jones are coming over, and Red.  Other than that I can do whatever, so I am writing this blog.  

We get to hear samples from the next album, from the Odyssey people.  I hope I don't sound too weird!

And now a tribute to my wonderful loving brother: [I.E.: I HAVE BEEN HIJACKED]

oOkaaaaay....I did NOT write the post I just found below. MAAATTHEEWWW!!!! He is either being a pest, or just mean.

He is such a great guy that I don’t think anybody could ever compare. Every time he goes about to fix something, that something turns out better than it began. He’s just that good. He’s not annoying in the least bit. Neither is he loud, obnoxious, whiny, or rude . . . ever!!!! I love that big guy. What an awesome brother to have. He’s strong and handsome, too. Too bad I don’t have more brothers, but now that I think about it none of them would compare.

Thanks for being such an awesome brother. You, shall we say,rock!!!

Oh, and he’s ultra-smart, too. Just saying!

Not that he's NOT cool and everything. Whatever. "Mi hermano, me tu eres coducinando loco!" or something like that.

6 days of school left

That's right! And guess what--today is "teacher professional enhancing day" or something. That's wierd--we're almost done with school anyway.

So sorry I haven't posted. I've been really busy. And my parents (already) want me to spend less time on the internet.

They also want my blog to be helpful. So here is a verse I learned. It reminded me of Dexter. "The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord." At first I didn't like the part about "the Lord takes away." But then I thought about Dexter. It makes more sense now.

One more thing: James the Intern (the Chipmunk) has babies! So, now I can't tell which one is James, and which one is Liz the Librarian (that's the mom). But they have four babies and they're SO CUTE! They come and eat seeds off our back steps. Their tales wave around like little flags in the grass when the run. One of them ran up into a tree! Today I'm going to sit real still and see if they come get the food while I watch them.

Mr. Whitaker found someone to adopt Sherman. I wanted to adopt him, but...I wasn't allowed. The Ceiling Fan was right about Mr. Whitaker getting rid of the dog. But Focus on the Family didn't ask him too. And he didn't get mad. So you can't believe everything you hear.

Well by!


Today I went to school, took a test, came home, did my homework...

And got a cool new logo that Loren Crisp made for me. Thanks Loren!! The one Matthew made for me was kind of lame. I guess he's better at fixing things then at art.

BY THE WAY, speaking of Matthew, he wrote that about himself under his picture. Now he'll be mad that I told you! Ha ha!
Now I have to go play soccer.

Oh, and if you didn't vote yet, please vote.

Sorry this is short.

Oh, James the Intern (the chipmunk) is so cool! He likes sunflower seeds. I forgot to feed him today though.

Answering what you said

James: you do not sound like a chipmunk.

TCman: I clicked to follow your blog. You guys are so funny!

Original Joe: you are weird :) Olivia says to you, "One never know, do one?" I don't know, it doesn't make sense to me.

Christian A. (what does the A. stand for?): I don't get to keep the chipmunk, just put out food for him (I'll tell you more later). And besides, Dexter did die, but he lived for a little while! I talked to a friend of mine who tried to take care of a baby bird, and it died the first night!

Tim: I am glad you know what a muchacha is.

Marvin: thank you. No, Matthew is doing okay right now. Except every time I log in, I find something new! Maybe I should change the password.
Oops, time to go. Talk to you later!
