a message from chARLI


our trip

We just had a great trip to Indiana and Kentucky.

While we were there we went to the birth place of Abraham Lincoln it was really cool I learned that when he was little he saw a group of slaves in shackles walking by and was very ifluensed by that experies. he was born on sinking springs creek. He loved telling stories and loved learning and practising his alphebet. he had a older sister names Sarah and a little brother named Thomas after his father that only lived a few days. His mother died of the milk diseas. He became a lawer and then president. he did many great things while president like ending the civil was and slavery. There is also a new statue of Abraham Lincoln on the Blevedere in Louisville Kentucky. I went there to see it with my grandma, grandpa and cousins.

There was a civil war battle fought in Corydon. We got to visit the battle site. general joun hunt morgan of the confederate states raided coradon and killed eight people and robbed the bank and stole the horses and other animals and food. colonel lewis jordon there were 2,400 troops in hunts army and only 400 home gaurds.

WE also visited teh Leora B rwon school which was a school for black children. leora brown was the teacher. its was very interesting to see the origenal chalk bourd which was so derty because they didnt have money to buy a new one.

we also visited the jefferson davis memorial. it is the lagest monumentin the world made out of cement. jefferson davis was the first and only president of the confederit states. the monument is about 350 feet tall there is anelevater we went on to the top(that has been redon sence the 1800s) it was very fun. The monument is located close to russelville kentucky, where my grandpa is from.

new stuff

a made this at School a few weeks ago. I love giraffes- i'm kind of crazy about them . Everyone in my class made an animal so I clearly made a girrafe out of clay. this is how it turned out.

The other day I went to my friend's house and she taught me how to make these little button bracelets. My mom took me to Hobby Lobby to get supplies and I have made about 6 of my own so far. Maybe I can sell them one day.

Volleyball is underway. My good friend Kit is doing it with me and it always much more fun to have a friend there. Volleyball is my favorite sportand I recently learned how to do an overhand serve. I practice out in the yard almost every day. Here is my hero- Misty May Treaner. I got her autograph a couple of months ago. It says - Dream in Gold. Misty May Treanor.
Tomorrow is mother daughter book club. i can't wait it's our last one of the year so we are having a cooking class. i can't wait.

Cliff Dwellers

I have had two experiences visiting a cliff dwelling place. Last year I went to Mesa Verde, and last week I went to a cliff dwelling museum.
Kivas are small dome shaped huts used for celebrations. There is a hole at the top were a ladder would be set that goes into a small circle dug deep into the ground.
Some of the buildings have hundreds of rooms some the size of a small apartment and others the size of a desk. All of them had three or four families sharing them.
They thought of great ways of living. They made a small rectangular box carved in the rock to store food in. it would keep it cool year round. The doors of their houses were as small as windows and high up to keep animals out during the night.
I think the cliff dwelling Indians were very interesting.
