So Far this Week

I know it is only Tuesday, but I have done some very exciting things this week. Yesterday we had some friends over in the morning. We played this really cool game called Nucen. You play by having at least three people on each side of a volley ball net. Since we didn't have a net we made one with rope. Then you have a soft ball and throw it back and forth. You need to catch it. If you don't catch but you touch it and then the ball touches the ground, you are out. Then the people on you team have to catch the ball with one hand to get you back in. If the ball doesn't touch you, then the closest person to the ball is out. The team that loses is the team that has no people left.  We played hide and seek, swam, ate some snacks and swam.  We also went for a scooter ride.  I got to try a motor scooter!  Now I want one for my birthday! 

That same afternoon, me and Fashionbug had a chess lesson. It was really good. We learned what the pieces are called and how they move. Then we learned some tricks. He loaned us a mini chess set and a chess book. We had a good time.

So far today, I got up, watched the weather, got dressed and went for a scooter ride. I got really cool pictures. I went down were you can see the pond. The fountain was on. There were clouds in the sky.  The clouds and the fountain together looked beautiful. And there was a perfect shot!  I went back home.  I saw a bird on the road.  But he/she went up to a branch and sadly I could not get the picture.  I also saw a squirrel.  It was behind a tree.  Its little head pooped out from behind the tree.  It was to fast a ran up the tree before I could get a picture.  There was another squirrel.  I have seen this one before.  I think he/she has a nest in one of the trees.  It was eating.  This time I got a few pictures. 

      Today is going to be fun. I will blog about it tomorrow.

What have you done so far this week?
