It's Super Pig!!
SCHOOL IS OVER NEXT WEEK!
I think. There is a party this week anyway.
Next year my sister starts kindergarten at my school. Mom cried last week because Dad told my sister she'd be riding the bus by herself. But that is not true. I said I would ride the baby kindergarten bus (it comes first, before my bus) so she wouldn't be scared. BUT I AM ONLY DOING IT A COUPLE OF TIMES.
Dad asked me what my favorite things were about school. I liked sharing time, which is like show-and-tell, only they call it sharing time. I liked having computers in our class because they used to have computers in this smelly room that smelled like yucky water and that was where we had to go last year.
I guess I liked my teacher best because she would let me do funny things. We did a lot of writing this year and she asked us to write stories. Sometimes she would give us the start, like "Once upon a time, there was a big cat named Goo-Goo Boy..." and then you had to finish the sentence or write a story. We also had to learn about the pieces of sentences. We learned about subjects and nouns and verbs and some others, like the ones that describe things. You know, like saying "the fat dog" and fat is the describer.
Dad says it's an adjective. That's right.
Anyway, one day in class, we had to write a big long sentence using all the parts that we learned. It had to have the subject, what he did, where he did it and when he did it. Some people didn't even do the whole thing. Some people did dumb sentences like "Andrew wrote on the paper in the class today."
I wrote this:
Andrew said it was dumb, but when Mrs. Dodd got the papers and read them, she got to mine and made a noise in her nose and had to go blow it before stuff came out. Some people laughed because they thought it was funny. Mrs. Dodd said I should do a whole story about the Adventures of Super Pig.
Here's a drawing I did in school waiting for the bus:
See? He's burping. I will do a better picture with my markers. But I made up the story in my head: Super Pig is the superest animal on earth and he goes around saving them from hunters and mean guys. He even saves dogs and wolves and things that eat pigs.
When he's done being Super Pig, he rubs mud on his face so they look like glasses and then he goes to work as Pork Kent. I don't know what he does for work, though. I still have to figure it out.
If I get the story done before school is over, I will give it to Mrs. Dodd as a present because I won't have her next year. I will miss her. I had her for kindergarten AND first grade.
If I don't get the story done in time, I will just give her a color drawing of Super Pig and write a letter. It will say:
Dear Mrs. Dodd,
Thank you for teaching to me all this long time. Here is a picture of Super Pig. You are just like him. I will come by sometimes to say HI!
Dad says Mrs. Dodd might think I said she was a pig, because of the sentence I wrote. But she knows I was talking about the super part. She is smart and she teaches all about sentences. Dad doesn't. I bet he is wrong. Dads are not all the time right, you know.
I will write more when school is over NEXT WEEK!!!

ZOW! I came BACK!
--In March Dad got sick and went in the hospital (he is all better now).
--At the last of March Grandma and Papa came to visit from New Hampshire and Grandma's birthday happened (she is 62!! I made her a card and made this hat from a kit. I took the picture. She looks like the Statue of Liberty, only not green.)
--In April my aunt and uncle and cousins Gregory and Baby Grace came for Easter.
I drew this picture for Baby Grace. Blue is her favorite color. Guess who it is!
--On April 23rd Mom and Dad's wedding turned 12 years old (I made them a card. I don't have a picture to go with it.)
--Then on April 30th my sister turned 5!
I took that picture too! I am doing more pictures and not drawing so much.
Dad took this picture. I am 7 and a half on the same day as my sister's birthday, but she wouldn't give me ANY cake!
I still made her a card and gave her a Robopet to play with my Roboraptor I got for Christmas.
(But his head got bit off.)
--On May 3rd Grammy and Grandpa came to visit from Ohio and Grammy's birthday happened (she is 60 now and she was NOT happy about it).
--On May the 5th Papa got his shoulder repaired by an operation. It is getting better but it still hurts (I made him a card. He said he would send a picture of the holes in his shoulder but he hasn't yet).
--In May I also started playing games in Little League (we have practiced since April). Last year I was in T-Ball league and this year now we hit balls from a pitcher. I was no good at the start but now I am getting good. Dad practices with me in the back yard.
The other day, I knocked Dad's balls into the fence and one of them got stuck! It took Dad a long time to pull it out.
--Last week I got a LOFT BED!
It is the best. And I don't fall out. The only bad thing is Blaze can't sleep on it. He lays on the rug and cries!
That is my list so far. But there is even more. Dad's birthday is soon. And SCHOOL IS OVER SOON! I learned lots of math and did more writing than ever. It has been a busy time.
Next time I will go back and tell you about some Disney things I took pictures of. And I made up a story called Super Pig that I will tell you.
