- Get a bit of yellow modelling clay.
- Put your hands on each side of the yellow clay and roll it around until it forms a ball.
- Get two small pieces of green modelling clay and put them on each side of the top of the chickadee for eyes.
- Get two pieces of black modelling clay and put them each side of the yellow ball for wings.
- Get a small piece of red clay and make it into a cone shape. Stick it on the front of the ball.
- Get another two pieces of red clay and put them on each side of the bottom of your yellow ball.
- Then you have a chickadee.
It started to snow and rain. At the same time, it hailed too. A tornado hit. A big history book sucked everything up.

You smell so horrible, and so do I
Captain Underpants is in his underwear
My Dad is walking down the stairs
in his underpants making such a sight
cameras in the air
the screams of Kayla saying,
"Daddy is in his underwear!"

- Don't think I'm interested in swans. Mom is making me do an entry on an article I read.
- There are three different species of swans in North America.
- Most trumpeter swans weigh between 21 to 30 pounds.
- They have a wing span of 6 to 7 feet.
These facts are from Trumpeter Swans by Rachel Dickinson in Dolphin Log 7/8 2003.
Listen to the call of the trumpet swan on this Trumpeter Swan Society link.

This cool machine extracts DNA from fruits and vegetables for just $80.00. This doesn't seem like a lot of money for such a cool machine. (Mommy thinks it's a lot of money!)
Discovery Kids Ultimate Labs DNA Explorer Discovery James Watsonwas only 24 when he discovered the helical structure of DNA, but this kit from Discovery Kids--the first to feature a bona fide centrifuge and electrophoresis chamber--will turn your kid on to the intricacies of genetics at an even younger age. Realistic lab equipment transforms the kitchen into a forensics lab, whereyour breakfast-bar biologist can extract clumps of real DNA from fruits and vegetables or solve "crimes" by revealing DNA "fingerprints"--telltale blue protein stripes in a gel mixture. $80
Here are some links on DNA:

- They live for a real long time.
- They make a whole bunch of babies, and it only takes one day for them to hatch.
- They are a cute pet with their small, cute eyes and small, cute body.
My Sea-Monkeys have been alive for a whole year. Sea-Monkeys are a kind of brine shrimp. Sea-Monkeys don't have a skull or bone. I know this because when I watch my Sea-Monkeys they move their whole entire body so there is no space for a bone. If they have anything, it's like an exoskeleton which is a skeleton outside of their body. They live in an aquarium, a container filled with water and water life. The Sea-Monkeys eat algae, that green stuff that grows in the aquarium. It grows by itself by collecting sunlight.
When you get your Sea-Monkey kit and open it up, you find three bags. One has a big number one, the other has a big number two on it, and the third has a picture of a mother Sea-Monkey and two baby Sea-Monkeys sitting at a table with bibs. The mother is carrying food to the babies. The bag with the number one has water purifier in it. The number two bag has the eggs. The one with the picture of the mother feeding the babies has food in it.
First, you put in bottled water in the aquarium. Then, you put in the water purifier. After you put in the water purifier and wait 24 hours, you put in the eggs and wait another 24 hours. While you wait, put the aquarium on a window-sill with sunlight coming through. Then you wait 24 hours before you get Sea-Monkeys.
One night before my Sea-Monkeys hatched I gave them food so they would have their first meal right away. By accident I used the wrong side of the food server, the bigger side, and gave them too much. It turns out that even as you read this blog entry, they are still alive.
Here are some links where you can find games and videos:
Sea-Monkeys are really adorable! I love them!

Gregor agrees to go after the rat. Gregor and his group have to go in a boat and then ride in the boat but on their way they met with giant squid that attacked the boat trying to get Gregor. Near the end of their trip they found the giant sea serpents that tried to eat them. The serpents woke up because the rats pushed boulders into the water to wake them up.
You should read this good book. I'm not usually a book fan but I still really like this book because of all the exciting adventures.

Calvin and Hobbes is the funniest comic strip in the world. The kid is Calvin and the tiger is Hobbes. Hobbes always begs for tuna fish. If my mom was Calvin's mom, she would be screaming right now because 2 o'clock in the morning Calvin woke his mom up to ask if people grew from spores. In another comic strip, his mom got all dressed up with lipstick, earrings, and her best dress. The second she walked out the door, Calvin sprayed her with the hose. And then when he was walking away, he was holding his butte saying, "What a grouch!" Hobbes, whenever Calvin opens the door from school and says I'm home, pounces on him and tackles him. They even have a secret club house in a tree called, "Gross, Get Rid of Slimy Girls!"
Whenever Calvin asks his Dad how something works, his dad says "It's magic." Once he turned on the light and said, "It's magic." His mom asked, "What has your dad been teaching you?"
Calvin and Hobbes is the all-time best comic strip in the world!!
Take a look at these great Calvin and Hobbes Links:

Scyther is one of my favorite because he is as big as a person, he has really sharp claw cutters, and he has two wings on each side like a bug. Scyther’s strongest moves are: Air Slash, X Scissor, Sword Dance, and Bug Buzz. Scyther is a Bug Flying Type Pokemon. If he was on a strong level, and we were fighting Water Type Pokemon, I would send Scyther out into battle.
Deoxys is my most favorite. One of the reasons is that he can transform into four different guys: attack form, defense form, speed form, and normal form. The second reason is because he is really strong and has really strong moves. The third reason is because his hands can separate into four different arms and hands. The fourth reason is because he beat Rayquaza. Deoxys is a Legendary Type of Pokemon. That means that he has an extra boost that makes him a million times stronger than other Pokemon. He would basically almost always win, except if he is fighting another Legendary Pokemon.
Kabutops is my second favorite because he is almost exactly like Scyther and Scizor. He is a rock water type of Pokemon. In the Fire-Red Game, you can get him from a fossil. You have to bring the fossil to a building to bring him to life, but before he is a Kabutops you have to evolve him from a Kabuto.
Scizor is the last, but not least, favorite. He looks like he has the same kind of hand as a crab, but he has the same wings as Scyther. He is red and he is a Bug Steal Type. His strongest moves are: Iron Head, Giga Impact, X Scissors, and Sword Dance. I would use Scizor when I am facing a Water Type Pokemon, but I would never use him against a Fire Type because fire is super effective against a bug steal type like Scizor.
In my opinion, these are all really cool Pokemon .
