Also, I have slightly edited the book, so it's not exactly the same as it was before.

Thanks, Patricia!

Warning: The next post in Mom's blog will most likely contain TONS of bragging because...

I had to take a CAT, (California Achievement Test) and my overall grade level was 11.3. (That's the 3rd month in the 11th grade)

My scores are as follow:

  • Vocabulary: PHS (PHS indicates the approximate score to be expected if a high school graduate completed EXACTLY the same test)
  • Comprehension: 9.5 (5th month of the 9th grade)
  • Spelling: PHS
  • Language Mechanics: PHS
  • Language Expression: PHS
  • Mathematics Computation: 4.8 (8th month of 4th grade)
  • Math Concepts: 7.5 (5th month of 7th grade)
  • Study Skills: 8.1 (1st month of 8th grade)
  • Science: 6.7 (7th month of 6th grade)
  • Social Studies: 11.0 (11th grade)

Not too bad, eh? Mom is SUPER happy, and she started busting a Joe Brogen (don't ask) on the phone when she was telling relatives/close friends about my test results.

Just when I thought school was over!

I have to do a silly test. And not just any test. It's the California Acheivement Test. It's, quote Mom, "to see where you are in school. You know, if you're above grade level, at grade level, or under grade level."

Yawn. Silly questions+a math test that doesn't let you use calculators=one bored soon-to-be 6th grader!

Abby Moment

This is one of the funniest Abby Moments yet!

"What did you do in Math today, Abby?" Dad asked her after she completed her schoolwork for the day, "did you do addition?"

"No," was Abby's reply.

"Then what did you do?" He asked.

"Pluses!" She declared.

And this concludes that in Abby-Land, addition and pluses are two totally different things.

Abby Moment

And now, what you've all been waiting for! *Drumroll* Another Abby Moment! Please note that this one is similar to another one Mom posted.

Abby and I were washing the dishes, (okay, I was washing them, and Abby was drying them, and putting them away) when she suddenly dropped a pan back in the sink. "You missed a lot, Sierra!" she declared.

"Missed what?" I asked her, confused.

"THIS!" She exclaimed, pointing to the black, non-stick coating on the bottom.

"Pookie, that doesn't come off." I told her.

"Yes it does!" She argued. "You're just not scrubbing it hard enough, lazy-butt!"

"Ay, yi yi." I muttered under my breath.

Weather, Babysittees, Ballet, and a funny story

Today's Friday, and it's supposed to be about 70 degrees today. YAY!

Rachel left a while ago, and Kelvin is napping.

Pookie has her first ballet class today! She can't wait!

The other day, when Mom told her that we would be getting her ballet slippers after Dad got home, she jumped into Mom's arms, and said "I love you so much!"

Quick Update

Allycat (Alison) has to have surgery on her eye tomorrow. :( (She has a clogged tear duct) Which means the only twin we'll have tomorrow is Baby Ethan. However, we will still have Kelvin and Rachel. (At least the boys won't have to fight over who gets to nap when, since we only have 2 playpens for them to sleep in)

Pookie's going to be taking ballet this summer at the local recreation center! She is absolutely thrilled, and is practicing with her Bella Dancerella Ballet Set as I type.

Ethan and I are going to be taking Tae-Kwon-Do this summer at the same recreation center this summer, but it starts after Pookie's ballet class ends.

And that's pretty much it for now. Ciao for now!

Thanks to the blasted government, *Shakes fists at them* kids under 4"9 in Washington to have a booster seat, effective today. And of course, I'm 4"8. By the time I'm 4"9, I'll be driving, for Pete's sake!

However, what will adult dwarves do? The average maximum for a booster seat is around 100 pounds.

And what will kids do when it comes to riding the school bus? It'd be a hassle, (most places are sold out of them) and a lot of money, to buy 2 booster seats per child.

Unfortunately, with that being the maximum weight limit for my booster seat, and my butt being the size that it is, I'll probably still fit it by the time I'm around 13 or so. (It's just an estimate, though.)

We bought booster seats a few days ago, and we had to go to 4 different stores before we found any! We went to 2 different Walmarts, 1 Target, and finally, 1 Babies R Us. Luckily, we found about 10 of them at Babies R Us. (We didn't buy them all, though! We definitely don't need that many!)

And, because there were absolutely none at either Walmart, and about 10 at Babies R Us, I made up a few haikus.

Walmart stinks big time!
We need booster seats right now!
And 'course, they got squat.

Mega hooray us!
We finally found boosters!
Yay Babies R Us!

I know they aren't exactly the best haikus ever written, but they're not too bad for my first try.

And that's pretty much the end of my rant. (For now, anyways)
