Geo. Class
In exactly 11 days is my birthday
I still don't know exactly what I am going to do for a party.
I was late for school today luckily there was a traffic jam so I had an excuse.

Math Class
Mr. Lichtfuss is in a good mood today, he is also one of our athletics coaches.
It has been raining all this morning we probably won't have football. I hope we play murderball in the gym.
Some people bring the strangest things to school, today Josh cooper brought a carpenter's level for some reason.
Today we are going to our rooms before lunch I am in mr. Bedell's room now.
We did play murderball and I didn't ever get out of the game, but I didn't ever get a ball either!
Mr. Stone just told me that I got the highest grade in the class on the english test, a 97. I am very proud.
Right now for once you can hear a pin drop in this room. I'm just guessing because I don't have a pin.

Reading Class
I am now in reading class I am sort of wet because I was out in the rain at recess. Some of the desks are missing so I moved one into my place and sat down.
I don't have very much to write compared with other days because I wrote it all during intermission.
I didn't really want to get up to go to school today.

Now I am home, I wanted to go to radio shack but my dad and mom had to take jenny to get her thumb x-rayed we found out that she had a cracked bone.
My dad is very mean sometimes.
We have a creek right near us me and robert go there in the summer, we catch crayfish and minnows, we use robert's long-handed nets. once we went past two tunnels and we had a whole bucketful of assorted stream life when we met three teen-agers they didn't give us much trouble but when we started through the first tunnel they hurried ahead of us and started to throw rocks at us we finally got home and we told the police to just talk to them because it would scare them out of any more tricks.
