This week was amazing! We had Dr.Seuss week too. That just means that we had Green Eggs and Ham day, crazy socks, and crazy hat day. The only bad thing is that since we have had so many snow days, we have to take one day away from spring break! Inconceivable! By the way, inconceivable means unimaginable or unbelievable. This week I did a research on Robotic Engineers. I will post it after the little bit of this. The last thing I am hoping for is to get into Friday fun lunch. Also, we are having the drop off later on today after lunch. I do not know what we will do in the drop off so I cannot tell you what we will do. After my research, I will post my pictures from Dr.Seuss week. The only thing left is to say my punch line. TTFN! (For you new readers, TTFN = Ta-Ta For Now)

Have you ever wondered what a robotic engineer does? Well, then I guess I am here to answer your questions! When you are an engineer, you make creations or make them better. In this case, you would work with robots. Being a robotic engineer is kind of like being an inventor. You can make your own inventions. Also, you can take other people’s inventions and improve them, with the main inventor’s permission, of corse! Another thing an robotic engineers can do is take old failed mechanisms, and recreate them with modern technology in hope that they would work. The last way I found that robotic engineers can work in is by taking current problems, and making an invention to solve it. That is the kind of job I want to have when I grow up! I think being a robotics engineer would be an adventurous job because you can deal with current problems, and seek through out the past for failed machines!
You don’t have to have a collage degree for dismantling your alarm clock! Unless of course you want to be a real engineer like I do! You can look to solve simple machines at home too you know. For example, an ordinary man, named Justin Wilson, invented the Wilson cooker which is now called the oven. Who knew, that such an ordinary man, could invent something so common in homes now a days. Now doesn’t that inspire you?

This week was awesome!! Week had no school on Monday because of President’s Day! Also, we had our Valentines Day party!!!!!!!!!!! Because of the party, I will be loaded up on candy for WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a another week off from school because of snow. the bad thing is that I didn’t have a sled so my dad ordered one for me but it was delayed till the day the snow was all melted!!For grammar, Ms.Stooksberry had to be filmed while teaching to us and I yawned on a close up!!! The only anther fun or exiting thing that we did this week was do a research on the Olympics so I will post it after this. All that is left now is to say my punch line; TTFN!!

Have you ever heard of a Olympic sport called luge? Luge is a some what uncommon Olympic sport. It does use some common features. For example, it uses a sled. The sled dose have blades so it can go faster than the kind of sled you have at your house. Another thing it has in common is that it has no brake at all. The rider simply uses their hands and feet to stop.
One luger I know is Kate Hansen. I think she is great at luge. By her name, you can tell that she is a girl, of corse. She was born on June 9, 1992 in Bubank. Now she is 21 years old. She is 5’8’’ or five feet eight inches. Her weight is 73kg or 161 pounds. She is of course is for the U.S.A team. So far, this year, she hasn’t won any medals yet, but I am still routing for her!! I just found this picture, so I think she won a MEDAL!!!!
I think that Kate Hansen is a great luger. Like I said before, she is very worthy to win tons of gold medals!!

Horses and Zebras
By: Rebecca Robinson
I think the coolest animal adaptations cone from the horse family. They have some pretty AWSOME features. For example, they have changed there look over time. I mean by their bone structure and all. I will describe some of them for you.
The Eat, and Watch
The maneuver, Eat and Watch, is used when any type of wild horse or zebra eats, of course. They find a spot to eat then after a little bit of eating, they look up and around, keeping an eye out for predators. If they happen to spot a predator, they take a run for it. That allows them to get a head start. The only danger is a predator that knows to stop moving when the horse looks up and around.
The Head Horse
Another type of defense is the head horse. It is a leader that is born in the lead family that inherits the job. The job is to stand higher than the other and to look out at the others and find and spot danger while the others eat.
Those are some of the amazing adaptations of the bold horse.
This week was pretty sweet like all of them. We had a really weird writing test so the whole schedule was waked. There is seven more days till Valintine! Today is drees as your favorite book character day, but I don’t have a FAVRITE character or a costume so I wore cowgirl clothes. I will post a picture of myself. Yesterday was spirit day and I wore a handkerchief around my neck. I don’t think I have a picture of it but I will chech. After this I will see if I made it to Friday fun lunch or to reading buddies. Mr.haney told me we are having a Valintine day box contest and I plan to win!!! I am doing a sea lion and my friend Elise is doing a shark. We are making a sean together. The only problem is finding craving and attaching the head. That is all for now! TTFN!!!!!!!!
This is week 20 I think. I have lost track. Oh well. I think last week went kind of down hill for me. It was a moment of weakness, but I really never win anything much. It is true. Anyway, this week was ALOT better, kinda. It has been SOOOOOO cold that we have not been able to have any outdoor recess. But that was the only bad thing this week. We did a free research meaning we can do it on anything we want. You’ll be amazed on my topic so I won’t tell you. I will show you……..Later…….Much…Much…MUCH later. Oh ya, I almost forgot. The only other bad thing we did was writing boot camp. You see, we have this big writing exam coming up so we are practicing almost every day!! We are still going to do it next week and by then I will be dead from boredom. Beyond that this week was a normal week, so TTFN!!
Today is the most scariest time of the school year!!!
Class Picture Day!!!!!!!!!!!!! Scary right? Well, the good thing is that I miss 20 mins of math. Yahoo!! The other bad thing is that I lost another tooth and you can see the gap when I smile were my tooth was. The rest of the day was normal. We did a power point on volcanos, Read more of the Westin Game novel study, went down to see our reading buddies, practiced for a big writing assessment, had donuts for Bo’s bee day…………….Wait!! Thats not normal!! I just gotten informed that the extra donuts are going to Elise, Griffin, and John Paul. Of course my “curse” carries on. I almost NEVER win anything. I don’t know if it is my appearance, but one thing is for sure, I NEVER feel proud of my self. But I have gotten used to it. It almost never bothers me anymore. But never mind that. After this I will present my weekly research on the Winter Olympics!! TTFN
I loved this week! I came home from my trip to Chicago! It was-15 degrees and I survived! I visited an art collage too. You know that power point I had on my blog? I saw a real painting in a museum by the same artist!
Week 18 was amazing!!!!!!!!!! We had our Christmas party!! it lasted all day!! We did a lot of crafts and competitions, but my team lost all of them. We also made movie trailers of our novel study, THE CITY OF EMBER. I WILL POST IT ON MY BOG BELOW THIS:
Week seven teen just can’t end, can it? It is not that I didn’t like this week, it is just that I Have a field trip tomorrow. It is at a place called wonder works. It is a place where there is a bunch of cool science exibits. I cant wait!!! It is random but weird, an old student of Mr.Haney’s commented on me and he said that he thinks I like to write and it is true! If you read this Christopher, were you in Mr. Haney’s first class? If you were, did you know a girl named Laura Robinson? Laura is my older sister. The high light of my week so far is the fact that I got a Christmas card from my french epal. Till next time!
