Mary's cast

My best friend Mary broke her arm Tuesday night. She fell out of the tree in her backyard and her arm landed on a root, then she fell on it. She got a orange cast. Here are some pictures of her ...

Hair paint day!!!!!!!

Yesterday my sister and brother and I got pink and purple hair paint. Here I am with pink & purple. Here are my brother & sister with paint in their hair, too.

My hair was cool! People kept saying that they would know that we belonged together because we all had pink and purple hair.

My Egg Drop

On September fifth, 2008 the 5th grade did an egg drop where you have to protect your egg enough so it will not break. Each kid has to design their own special container to hold and protect it so it will not break as easily as it would when just a plain egg would have been dropped. The teachers dropped the egg drop projects from the gym roof.

We had to think of a hypothesis and then how to solve it. My hypothesis was when an egg is dropped or crashed it breaks. I thought I solved the problem by putting my egg in a little water bottle and then putting the little water bottle in a bigger bottle. I should have made a cushion for my egg because it broke even though the parachute worked perfectly.

I named my egg after Amelia Earhart because Amelia Earhart was the first woman to fly. I named my egg Amelia Eggheart because it was dropped which is sort of like flying!

Here is me after Amelia crashed, how my contraption looked when it landed, and the teachers on the roof.
