To me, life just isn't the same without green. Green is the color that shows plants are blooming. Green is the color that can really make a home feel like home. Green can cheer you up. Green can even be a sign of good luck. But most importantly, green is the sign of St. Patty's Day.
Legend says that in the early years of the earth, a man named Patrick was a saint. They say he threw out all the snakes that slithered around Ireland. They also say that he was Christian, and since many of the people of Ireland had no religious belief, Saint Patrick taught Christianity to them.
I cannot live without green because - maybe you don't exactly notice it, but - I'm an environmentally friendly person. I recycle the things that should be recycled, I help my mother with the garden, (we're going to have to start all over with this new house) I care about the animals in the wild, and I also don't pollute and just throw things on the ground. Many of you who know me probably don't see it in me, but it's true.
So, Happy St. Patrick's Day to you. :)
Well, the pictures above are more of my new house. They don't have anything to do with what I'm going to talk about.
Back at my elementary school in Boise, life is amazing there. My friends are amazing, but I'm wondering one thing: Why three weeks before I'm leaving? It's just sad, but I'm going to enjoy the pleasure while I can. :)
So that's just an update for now. Have an awesome new week!

As Mrs. Cook's 3rd grade class sat in library waiting for further instructions, the librarian, Mrs. Habben, strolled over to where the class was sitting and showed us a baby's diaper. "This is the size an average baby would wear," she stated. She then pulled out a diaper which was a little smaller. "This is for a baby who was a few weeks early when born."
We can help those premature babies if we just try.
Today I got to experience pudding all over my HANDS. Mrs. Kaufman is filled with ideas, and we all agree this was one of her best yet. As aluminum foil was laid out on top of every desk, chocolate pudding was poured onto the foil, allowing us to finger paint to our heart's content.
The chocolate felt so gooey, but I knew this was a once in a lifetime thing, so I went with it. We drew anything we wanted: hearts, scribbles, polka dots, phrases, symbols, everything. By the end of the time, we licked our hands clean, (which tasted oh so good, by the way) and licked all the aluminum foil. Some of us put mustaches on our faces just for the fun of it all.
And that's another strange day for you in Mrs. Kaufman's classroom.
