One, two, three, jump, sweep!

Today we did stunting and learned our dance. Stunting was part of it so we practiced it. The stunt we do is in the beginning. It’s called the sweep. It’s basically like the cradle but you, instead of throwing her, sweep your hand out and do the same thing. Our dance is hip hop. We only learned half. Also, today, Clair, Sarah’s sister came. Most of the time we did dance and stunting. I’m so excited! Tomorrow, after Thursday, on Friday, we’ll perform at the BBQ. On that happy note, I’ll leave.


Camp Mirage Siege of the forbidden age part 3

Today, wasn`t bad at all. We didn`t do any challenges of other camps, we played gaga and got to make siege engines (WWWHHHHHHOOOOOOHHHH!!!!!!!!!! JJJJ JJ). What happened when we started was we did a song and then found our counselors, which was when we started our catapults. (Evil laugh time.) What it was it was mostly was assembling the body and then using 6 pieces to make the arm. It actually took us a while but we finished it. Which during the brakes we did the canteen, and Gaga, both of which was fun (`cept for the fact I had no money to spend…). At the gaga pit we did a fun game of it aganst Dan’s camp (`cept for Jerkiodo.) which I lost the grudge. After we finally finished the catapult I and another caper got into a catapult war, which I got him with my messed-up-but-that-only-made-it-better catapult in the fore head which all four of us thought was funny, even him!! Really it was as fun as the first day…

Camp Mirage Siege of the forbidden age day two

Today was a so-so day. I had got hit in the face, got a fat lip, and was made fun of by stupid Cm favs jerks. The only good part was we won two challenges and those were ones I think I`ve done before, and that we won two gaga matches aganst them. One of which I won. Originally we were supposed to make catapults but the kits that we supposed to use where not here. So Dan`s camp, which had the guy who nailed me in the face, challenged us to a match of castle ball and I got out a few times but even though they outnumbered us we put up a great fight, as we knocked out a lot of their players in including the guy who hit me. (I don`t like him at all…) Before that mess, we did the challenges of the balance and the pipes, in the pipes as it said we had to use the pipes we got and tried to: A) make it touch all our pipes, B) get it to the goal without it touching someone, C) not let it touch the ground. In the balance game we had to keep a plate form balanced for at least thirty seconds and it’s harder than it sounds, the thing leaned to the left and so what we did was we put the lightest people on one end and the medium people on the right, with people like me on the middle. It took a lot of tries, but actually it was pretty fun. The overall worst part was getting hit in the face because when we knocked out the guy who hit me he was whining at the dungeon and chucking balls at our castle ( I wish he was not in the game, but so what???). Anyway, it wasn`t so bad at the camp just the only bad day thing was : JACOB (From CMSOT.) was on the other team!?!?! IT really wasn`t that bad `cept for the one part…


Today at camp we did :
The chacha slide
2 new cheers
The cradle
Thigh stand
The cradle is like double base but after you get her up you throw her up into the air and catch her.the rest you know except the two cheer s.tomorrow I’ll do those. I have to go now.

Boom, Clash, Lightning, Flash!

Mom note: Olivia explained as I typed! Whew! She had drawn lots of pictures and then had to narrate the pictures for me.

Today I went to Camp Mirage. My camp is called so you think you can dance and cheer camp. Today we did stunting, the waltz, a jump, and a cheer. What we did in stunting was this there was two bases (the bottom who are lifting up.) a backdrop, (who holds the flier and helps.) and, last but not least, a flier. (who is on top and the one people throw and lift.) I was a flier. (of course!) The stunts we did were the elevator and something else like it. Here’s how you do it the elevator
1. The two bases stand with their feet crossed together with the other person’s. One leg is back farther than the other and the front leg is bent so that from their knee down is a straight line with the other person’s.
2. The backdrop lifts the flier up and puts her on the bases hands which they have cupped on their thighs so her feet can fit there.
3. And then they start lifting her up slowly until she’s about head height and through it all, the backdrop holds her waist and at the end the backdrop holds her ankles when they lift her up.
4. And then, this is how we did it though, she goes into a bear hug and the backdrop is holding her waist and the two bases move and she drops down.
The other one which I cannot remember the name of
1. You do the same thing except you don’t lift her up you just keep her waist high.
The third one is the hopper.
1. The two bases stand straight with their feet and then they have their hands in the same position and the backdrop is holding the flier’s waist and she bends down and prepares to jump and then she with the backdrops help jumps onto the bases hands and then the bases bounce down a bit and then straighten out and hold her up.
We did the waltz for a while, then learned a jump. It went like this. You have your hands on your hips with your feet together and then you bring your hands up and clap and then you put your hands so that they are like in a circle you don’t have your fingers but just in the place where your thumb is separated from the rest and bring it up above your head. The next part is kind of quick really quick you jump and bring your arm out and bring your right foot up to it and put your other hand on you hip and kick your other foot up and you land with your hands on your hips. We also learned a dance. Actually a cheer. It went like this. You start with your hands on your hips and then I’ll sing the song afterwards. So you hands on your hips and then you clap and then clap and then clap twice and then you bend your knees and bring your hands down to your thighs and put them there and then you straighten out and put your arms in a straight line parallel to each other and then you bring one arm over like that and then kick the leg that is like it like your right leg and your right arm and kick them backwards and then turn your head backwards and then this part comes rally fast you bring everything back and then you clap and then you clap and then you clap twice and then you do the same thing. Here’s the song : Thunder and lightning will put you to the test bang crash lightning flash jaguars are the best jaguars are the best.
After that we had to go home. I hope tomorrow just as much fun!!!!!

Camp Mirage-Siege of the forbidden age

Today was, in words: Awesome, outrageous, cool, funny, totally unnerving, and sweet! I did the fly trap in the beginning, and I think that one kid was using some words of a song or singing a song, and then I saw some of my old friends, Dennis, (from Camp Mirage splashes of time.) and also Jacob, (also from CMSOT.) but only Dennis said hi because I don`t think that Jacob saw me. My friends that I made were: Sam, who was really goofy, and A lot more people whose names I can`t remember (AAGGGHHH!!!). The games we played were: gaga, Green glass door, picnic, and my personal favorite, the challenge and castle ball. The challenge was, we had to help Sir Randy (our counselors.) expand his land but our opposition saw us and raised the draw bridge, so we have to swing to the pressure plate to open the bridge and storm the castle. The first thing we did was we tied my towel to Sam’s shoe and use it like a whip and catch the rope, after a few tries we did it. The best part about the castle game (like dodge ball.) was I nailed the team`s hardest player, Randy in the shoulder twice!! Not that hard though, we had lost the first but we won the rest of the games after that. So really it was awesome!!!!!!!.

This morning we were watching cartoons and reading. I am reading the Eragon series. Right now I am reading Eldest now. The Eragon series is about a farm boy who’s mother came from a city to give birth to Eragon in the country and leave him there with his uncle Garo, cousin Rowen, and his aunt. Fifteen years later he is hunting and finds what he thinks is a rock but is an egg. And so his farm burns down, his uncle is dead, and Ra’zacc did it. He goes in search of them and meets Murtag. Together they go to the Varnan. If you want to hear the story read the books!!!
Papa is getting a new cat. Yesterday before we went to Uncle Mark’s we went to the humane society. He won’t tell us what cat he got but they tried out two with us and then we left and they tried out one more. I think it’s going to be Shadow, the first one or melody’s sister, the third one.


Into the mist

A two-at-a-timer. A man telling the story of his and his brother`s life. A girl listening to every word. What could be a better? Nothing if you know the land of Eylon series. It takes place before Axela Dailey, the main characters of the series but, it`s also a prequel to the whole series. All the characters are: Axela, older Roland, and Yipes are in the beginning with frequent intervals of Roland telling the story. The characters of the story though (which I`m still reading.) are: Roland, Thomas, Thorn, who`s a mountain lion, Mrs. Flannery, and now the mysterious sir Alistair Wakefield. Near the beginning the story takes place in an awful orphanage, then it goes from wild to wild as they make their way across the land to Wakefield house. It`s actually a pretty good book considering how it can be a good setter for the beginning, or a good end reader.

Soccer smash!!! (Just the practice too)

Today wasn`t half bad. I woke up, got breakfast and then we started cleaning. That`s when things got better, Mom said I had soccer practice in half an hour. So when we got there I made friends with Christen, Noah, and Joe (sort of). The coach, which I can`t remember his name, (why the heck does that happen??) said that Joe, and his son would be captains because they played in the league before (that`s a good reason…). Mostly the drills were running although we also ran and passed the ball between us in one drill. The worst one was we ran around two fields and back. My favorite out of those was the one where we ran with the ball and kicked it back and forth as we were running. The one I was best at though was the drill where we ran back and forth. In all it wasn`t too bad a practice in fact it was pretty good! I had some fun at the practice today!

Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my!

Yesterday we went to the Toledo Zoo with Maeve, Rory, Finn, Ms. Mary, Ms. Callie, Genevieve, and Vivienne. At the Toledo Zoo, we went to Africa while we were watching for Ms. Callie and the girls. At Africa we didn’t see a lot of things. What we did see was : ? . We also did a lot of posing since there was tons of statues. Me and Rory loved sitting on the heads of statues. One statue looked like our cats! There was a big momma tiger, (Pika) a little cub playing with its tail (Charlotte) and another cub rubbing against the momma’s cheek. (Pierre). Then Ms. Callie got there. We went over across the bridge and went to the aviary. We saw cardinals, African birds, forest birds, hello Pierre, and much more. We then had lunch. Charlotte is typing for you We had lunch at the Birdfeeder. We all had sandwiches (except Genevieve, Vivienne, Finn who had baby food and pizza). There was a bird’s nest that we were playing in. While we were eating, it was raining. Quickly, while it was dry, we went through the primate forest and ran to the aquarium. At the aquarium we saw fish and fish, and shark and a turtle. There were even piranhas! Then we got ice cream. I had a twist with rainbow sprinkles. Then we saw polar bears, seals and tons of other things. After that we went to the gift shop. Rory got a mouse. Me and Rory started playing a game while we were driving to Pizza Hut. At Pizza Hut I had pizza with sauce. I love going to the Toledo Zoo.
BYE!! =Liv

! Mario kart!(WHAAAHOOO)

A race. You think “how boring…” if you`ve never played it before. Really a fast paced, in-your- face-or-you`re-in-mine game, it has a total of (that I`ve got) about 15 or so characters (SQUEAL!!) including the mii characters. There are 32 courses in total as well as 163(!!!!) vehicles, 84 karts and 84 bikes as of which some I am working on getting. The characters you get automatically are (the best except for the mii): Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad, Bowser, baby Mario, baby Peach, donkey kong, Wario, Waluigi, and koopa troopa.(That`s a lot…) Then the characters I have earned by racing the game (so far…) are: The miis, dry bones, Rosalina, and King boo, I`ve earned the karts: piranha prowler, and zipzip. I am really enjoying the game because it presents a challenge of trying to earn all of it`s treasures, and is a great game for families to play as a group. BONZAI!!

Yesterday we did a lot of things.
· We went to Greenfield Village with Nana and Bumpa.
· We went swimming with Uncle Ben, Aunt Sarah, Bella, + Nana and Bumpa.
· We went to Uncle Ben’s house for dinner and played video games there.

When we went to Greenfield Village we didn’t really do anything. Me, Dad, and Nana had iced tea while Mom, Luke, and Bumpa went to the baseball game. After that, we left Greenfield Village. Then we went swimming. Then we played Marco Polo and me and Aunt Sarah were jumping and diving in. We (me and Aunt Sarah.) cannonballed Uncle Ben. For dinner we had pasta, chicken, corn, and salad. Then we played Singstar. We played Singstar Queen and something else Uncle Ben didn’t tell us the name of. Wii also played Wii. The game we played was Wii Motion Sports we played fencing and archery. I won one round of fencing. Then we had to leave.



A wizard named Nell

A brave heroine, plenty of magic, and lots of goofy pranks. A good book, actually in a setting of a world called Eldearth, a realm where magic is possible, and your worst fears may be a reality. The characters are: Nell: a young girl, and the main character, Owen: a trouble making boy who decides to help trick Nell`s father so she can undertake the quest, Minna: a silly little demi dragon, who`s Nell`s pet, and Beauty: an albino dragon that Nell rescues. The story starts, Nell’s birth day is here and there is going to be a party, half way through thought, a gang of banshees, screaming ghosts, bust in and try to kill everyone, Nell manages to get rid of the banshees by thrusting a wand through its body and reciting “star light, star bright, take this evil from our sight!!” about five times. After that, the people lady Fedilia, lord Taman, and Nell’s father, about if she`s the chosen one. It`ll actually get better from there, and more adventures like an escapade, love potions, and a dragon rescue. Hope people who read it will like it!!

The marvelous land of Oz

A great spin-off, magic spells and potions, a double-gendered main character, and lots of goofy creatures. What else could be an amazing story of the other adventurers of the first book? Nada, that`s what. The story starts out with our hero, tip, wants to scare his guardian/ evil witch Mombi. So, he makes a creature like thing which he names Jack pumpkin-head. But as soon as Mombi gets back she uses a powder that turns things into living thing instead of being inanimate objects. The three examples of the powder are: Jack pumpkin-head, the saw-horse, and the Gump machine. After Mombi threatens to turn tip into a statue, he steals Jack back, and the duo runs away. All the characters are: Tip, Lack, the Scarecrow, the Tin woods-man, and the saw-horse and Gump. I really think it’s a good book, and I think anyone who liked the first book, would like this.

Michigan Adventure!!!

On Monday, Maeve and Rory came to spend the night. We started playing Barbies but never finished because we went to get ice cream then. We walked. I got World Class Chocolate, Maeve ?, Luke, who knows?(Don’t tell him that because I’m sitting right next to him.), Rory ?, Dad, oreo mint chocolate chip. Then, we’re off to go to Giggleland in the wonderful wonderful land of giggles. (translated, bed.) We were awake most of the night talking, telling stories. Then, Tuesday, we went to Michigan Adventure with them. First we did rollercoaster’s here are a few and how many times we rode them:
Ride Times
Scrambler 2
Zach’s Zoomer 2
Airplanes 1
Thunderhawk 1
Corkscrew 1
Spinny Thing(unknown) 1
And a couple of others I don’t remember. Then we went to the water park. The rides are: the funnel of fear, snakepit, wave pools, and green and white slide. Then we went to dinner, (Pizza Hut.) and ice cream.

Michigan adventure

Today was pretty fun! It was Maeve, Rory, Livi, and me, and we went to Michigan`s adventure! It`s actually pretty much like cedar point in Ohio, just more rides (JJJ).My favorite ride was probably the thunder hawk an awesome ride where you hang on the coaster instead of in the ride. You sit in these seats that are hanging from the track, instead of riding in a car, cool, hunh? We went on: Zach`s zoomer, (2times) corkscrew, bumper-cars (I did thunder hawk!!). Then we went to the water park where we did: funnel of fear, then the wave pools and also the snake pit which was three slides that did different things, for example, mine dropped at the ending. So really the day was awesome, and the park was great.

Here is the digital comic book Luke has been working on:

Avatar the last air bender- Into the inferno

An amazing story, hilarious dialogue, and ridiculous animation. What could be the best game of the goofed spoofs?? This one in-definitely!! It begins when Aang, the avatar, (a warrior who can use all the elements, but Aang can only use three so far, water, air(his first one) and earth.) wakes up on a ship, which his friends Katara, Sokka, Soph, and Katara`s and Sokka`s father have stolen but that still has soldiers on board. Then that`s where you pick up the stylus and learn the basics, which include: running, (easy,) fighting, (not too hard,) and controlling the elements water and earth,(you make tornados with Aang!!!!!) (Not so easy depending on the element.). You explore many places in the game but I have only done 4. These include: a ship mentioned earlier, a factory, a prison, (where you play as Katara and Soph.) and a cave, (where you play as Soph and Sokka.) The full cast of characters include: (playable) Aang, the last air-bender, and the avatar, a powerful warrior who is supposed to save the world, Katara, a girl who finds Aang and teaches him water-bending, Sokka, Katara`s brother and warrior of the water tribe, Soph, Aang`s blind friend and earth-bending teacher.(Others)prince Zoko`s sister, fire nation solider, fire-bender, and switches. Really it`s a good game and I think people would like it.

Yesterday we(me, Luke, and Sadie.) had a sleep over at Granker’s! First, we went swimming at our house. Me and Sadie were diving and cannonballing like crazy. After a while, I got cold and went out. Then Kenny, Tyee, (and this is in order.) Luke, then Sadie. After that we went to Granker’s. We mostly watched TV we watched all sorts of things. We stayed up until past midnight story: Me and Sadie went upstairs (we were sleeping in the basement.) to get some tea. Well, we got it but Granker said we had to go to bed in a half hour. But it was probably more of an hour than a half hour when she told us to go to bed. After that, we stayed awake for awhile and kid under the covers when we thought Granker was coming. We also talked, laughed, and made noises, and whispered. BED!!! Then next morning for breakfast was: rice krispies with sugar and milk. After we did that, we had to go home. We also washed the car a couple of minutes ago.
Livi 7:00 p.m.

Camp Mirage Splashes of Time

I had a lot of fun today! We went canoeing, which was lots of fun. What we did is we drove there, were told the rules and got our stuff, then got into the canoes. Oh, and just so you know, if you REALLY want to go canoeing you really want to have a bathing suit and some ridiculously funny friends to splash (at least for someone…). The mishaps only happened to us, once, but lots of others ended up running into walls and stuff! Dennis, Robert, and I were almost in hysterics the Whole time because of the ridiculous stuff that happened! But mostly it was Dennis calling Robert “Sir butt-cheek” and I almost laughed `till I cried! I know that it sounds like I blabbing on and on about how funny this was, but I might never see some of the memorable friends I made during this week again (Though I wouldn`t mind about Jelly Bean Joe) and even some people I didn`t Like were great! So it was a memorable week, even though I laughed, J.B.J cried a lot, I was hated, and I was befriended, I loved this camp from day 1!! CAMP MIRAGE!!!!!
