Last summer our boys were at overnight camp for a month, and our daughter for only 2-weeks, and while attending a Maker event, our Boo came face-to-face with a friend that she had never met before.
Love this photo!

To think some kid made this! Awesome! I think Linus would love this!
My 7-year-old son has decided that he wants to get “published” and fast! He’s started writing some stories for me to post on my blog so that he can work on his stories for his book. I have not edited it in any way. He actually wrote it into a word document which I pasted here.
Here is another one of his short stories. He is Stewie. His protégé and 4-year-old sister is Boo.
Once upon a time there were 2 children in the house named Boo and Stewie.
One day when they were walking in the rainy jungle they saw a hungry lion, so they SCREAMED for help but no one came, so they ran away from the lion as fast as possible.
As they were running away from the lion as fast as they could, they saw a house where they thought they could be safe from the lion. As they got closer to the house they realized it looked to be haunted, but they did not want to be lunch for the lion so they ran right into the house.
When they were inside the house they immediately saw a ghost. They asked the ghost, “what is your name?” The ghost said my name is Spooooooooooooooooky and they wanted to talk more to the ghost, but Boo said “the lion is coming in 20 seconds; 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20. Oh no. He’s here. Run everybody!”
So they all ran away from the lion, but the ghost stopped because it did not need to run. It is a ghost. The ghost flew up in the air which confused the lion.
The lion was very hungry and wanted to eat Boo and Stewie for lunch but now they were gone and all the lion saw was a ghost and the ghost was not running away. The lion wondered why. Was the lion going to have a yummy ghost lunch or maybe the ghost was not running because the ghost was not scared of the lion, which made the lion worried, because everybody runs away from him.
But instead of chasing Boo and Stewie, the lion decided to eat the ghost.
You cannot eat ghosts.
My iPad has a timer we use for the children’s math drills. I named it “Math Drill” because that is what it was for. Then I opened it…
