My Very Fun Long Weekend With Winter Special Olympics

Two ribbons and one medal for skiing and snowshoeing!

Two ribbons and one medal for skiing and snowshoeing!

I had a fun weekend with no school on Monday and Special Olympics on Tuesday and Wednesday! So this week I have only two days of school: one Gold Day and one Blue Day. I am tired but I am excited to wear my medals to show my friends at school. Anyway, I had a busy weekend and a time to catch-up at least a little; my mom likes it when we get paperwork done!

So on Friday I got home and found the schedule for my swim meet in Helena on the table waiting for me. That made me excited to get ready for Saturday. So I packed my stuff all by myself! And then I went hunting for my mom. She was in the attic working. I joined her and did a little weaving on my big loom. There was something wrong with foot treadle #3 so my mom helped me a little but mostly I was weaving all by myself. Then I was going to make some pot holders but I changed my mind and asked my mom to read The Hobbit with me. It was scary. The gobblins came into the cave and took all their packages, baggages and ponies too. I went to bed early and got up at 5:00. My mom said it was too early but I wanted to get ready all by myself. The only thing my mom helped me with is a pillow: she asked me if I would like a pillow so I could sleep on the bus. I said `yes.’

My mom said that this was my last regular swim meet and that she remembered driving Morielle and Matthan to Sentinel parking lot for their meets. This would be the last time for the early Saturday morning drive. It was very dark and gloomy with fog. I saw the pretty moon and I saw my mom crying: `what are you doing?’ `I am giving thanks; could you hand me a kleenex, please.’ silly mom.

On Sunday Grandma and Grandpa were sick and the piglets at the FFA Farm had not come yet so we stayed home and worked on homework. Then when we were done doing our paperwork, we finished watching The Dark Knight Rises. There was a football game and The Star Spangled Banner and I liked that part and then the game went crazy with guns and shooting and people screaming. It was scary. What happened is more guns and shooting and funny flying cars. And then it was sad at the memorial service.

I went to Winter Special Olympics on Tuesday and Wednesday. I rode the bus and watched a movie. I went nordic skiing and I went snow shoeing; I did not ride the snowmobile and I did not ride the sleigh or go sledding. Then I went to the hotel and had the dinner and the dance. I ate pasta, salad, bread, cake and ice cream. Then we had the dance. I got to wear my prom dress again because the theme was `It’s a Formal Affair.’  My roommate, Jade, told my mom that I was the dancing queen again. It was fun! I slept in the hotel room with Jade and on Wednesday I went skiing again and snowshoeing again. I won two ribbons and one medal. It was fun. I rode the bus home and watched another movie. My mom came to get me and we went home. I told her everything that we did in the car. At home I unpacked my stuff and packed for a Gold Day. And then we ate supper and we heard a noise:  what’s that funny noise?  It was Morielle calling on the computer!  It is called FaceTime. So my mom put the computer on the desk and we talked to Morielle while we ate our supper. It was almost like having her home for dinner except that she had just gotten up in the morning. I showed her my jar of applesauce and she wanted me to pass it right through the computer so she could eat some for her breakfast! We said `goodbye’ on the computer and then I got ready for bed because I was very tired.
