Band Concert in the Park

School will be out for the summer in two weeks.  I can’t wait to be finished.  Had a surprise today.  My band teacher announced we had been chosen to play a band concert at the city park bandstand in two weeks.  This is going to be fun.  Everyone visiting the park will hear us. I know I have to do some extra practice so I don’t mess up my trumpet solo.  I think this year will end on a high note!  I am going to take Andy so he can hear my band play.


A Stressful week of Tests!

What a stressful week I have had! I am sure glad those tests are over.  Whoever came up with an idea like testing us kids all the time?  They are inflicting unnecessary punishment on us innocent kids.  The math part was really hard. I frankly guessed at some of the questions.  My teacher said to not think too much about each question—just read and respond.  Well, that’s what I did.  Some parts were easier for me.  I liked the history part.  There were even some questions in the science section about insects.  I got all of those right because Andy had told me a lot about his underground world and how the ants worked together.  I can’t handle another stressful week like this!


What a disaster– because I forgot!

Well, you want to know what happened to my science presentation?  You are going to have to get The Goofed-up Science Project book at to learn what happened.  I explain what happened there.  It was quite an amazing week that almost ended in a disaster.   My forgetfulness almost killed Andy and his friends.   Get the book and find out what happened.

I have two days of tests this week.  I cannot get out of this in any way.  I just got to get in there block out distractions and outside thoughts and do my best.  Maybe I have learned something after all.   School is a lot of work.  I am learning that by talking one day at a time and not forgetting what you are required to do makes hard things more enjoyable.

I in trouble—my science project is due and I am not ready!

I am in trouble big time!  Remember that science project assignment?  I kept putting it off and now it is due this Friday.  My teacher passed out the schedule of presentations to the class today and I am scheduled to present my science project to the class this coming Friday right after lunch.   I don’t even have a project and I am expected to make a presentation on something I know nothing about!  On top of this, Ms. Adams announced that the two days of tests would be next week.

I need admit to Andy that I blew it big time and ask him for his advice.  He always finds solutions to challenging situations.  Maybe by being honest about my failure he can help be know what to say or what to do.  How I wish this whole week would disappear. I am so nervous about the presentation due on Friday that I cannot even think about tests next week.

I have two days of tests coming up!

Well, Ms. Adams, the student teacher is helping prepare us for year-end tests.  She is trying to be helpful but I wonder.   Today she explained that the testing is required by our school district.  The testing was not going to be just a quick quiz.  The test was going to actually take two full days and will includes things that we have learned in areas of history, science, math, and social studies.  I think I am in trouble. Can you imagine that?   This really disturbs me!

I cannot imagine answering questions, writing, and solving problems for two whole days.  Who in the world came up with this idea anyway?   Ms. Adams explained that the school want to know if we are learning how to think and solve problems so that we are able to teach and lead others.  I just a kid. I am not ready to teach or lead anything!!  I must talk to Andy about this
