He's Back, But I Don't Know For How Long



The mood has struck him, and Baby E, who is now 11 (!!!) has asked to do a post. It's 10 PM and it's summer vacation. The windows are open and it's a beautiful summer night.

We're sitting on the sofa together and I say why the heck not.

**thank you, Baby E. xo**

Hi, it's me, finally. I want to write tonight right away before I forget about the things I want to say. I want to talk about everything and I'm thinking of everything that has happened to me. 


This is me when I first began blogging. I was seven.


This is me now with the iPod that I got for Christmas. I'll tell you later about the songs I like.


This is me eating corn like a maniac. We buy local sweet corn and look at the pile of cobs on my plate. It's delicious.




This is me with the thing I made, a hand glove, I made it from Hexabits. I'll tell you more about that cool building toy later.


This is me on the almost last day of school. I'm thinking about all that I did.


This is me with balloons on the last last day of school. My mom picked me up and had the van full of balloons for me.


This is me with a giant cootie catcher I made before school ended. Some of the fortunes in it were "bad luck," "good luck," "watch out."


This is my big brother making a basket and me behind him with orange on.


This is my shot. I'm not dancing.




Back to words only.

On the almost last day of school, on a Monday and beginning of summer, our class went to a picnic at the park. I thought it was going to be lame with teachers organizing everything where you have to do what they say but we got to do whatever we wanted. It was pretty cool.

On the second last day of school, which was Tuesday, we did this thing called Field Day where a bunch of games are set up and you try to win them. It was fun.

On the last day of school, we went to mass for an hour. And then we had an hour long recess but just because it was raining two drops they made us go in and we watched the dumbest movie in the world. I turned my chair around just to stare at the wall instead. I groaned a couple of times but made sure the teacher didn't hear me.

For games for the summer, buy your kids Hexabits. It's a building kit of little hexagons that interlock, it's pretty cool. You have to be over three years old, though.  

For books, buy your kids Planet Tad, Big Nate, and The Middle School Series. 

For things to do, get a kick ball and go to the pool and invite friends over.

For Nintendo Games, there is this game called WarioWare  D.I.Y. It's this really cool game where you get to make your own game and there's like 80 preloaded games in it. They're like mini games so it's super fun.

For Wii games, there is this awesome game called Super Paper Mario. It's where you're Mario and you flip between 2D and 3D dimensions. It's really awesome.

For iPad, MY MOM WON AN iPAD!  I just want to say that.

What else I want to say is that I like to eat corn and I'm going to play outside a lot.

Bye.

I like to go to Charcoal Grill for their rotisserie chicken that they serve you in a frisbee and you can ask for dark or light meat and get half a chicken and waffle fries, I like to go to Dave and Buster's and play the Pirate Game there, and go to the park with my friends.

Bye.

I'm going to write more because I have more free time.

OH! for songs I like on my iPod, I like Don't You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia, and then there is Feel So Close by Calvin Harris, and there's also Safe and Sound by Capital Cities. Good Time by Flo Rida and Can't Hold Us (you can buy the clean versions with no swears like the D word and the S word gone) by Mackelmore and #thatPOWER by Will.I.Am.

**Auggie's mom here. I'm being featured today at an amazing website, Purple Clover. I have a piece up on what I think I'll do, after this little guy is gone. It'll be here faster than I know it. Thank you for checking it out, "Profound Experiences in Grocery Stores," via Purple Clover.

  1. I so wish I had read this before I bought a book to send my 12 year old at camp. I saw the middle school series but passed for a How to Survive a Zombie Attach manual. I thought she and her cabin mates could read it and get freaked out. Love the giant hand thing. Most cool. Here's wishing you an awesome summer.

    1. Sorry if it has been awhile.

      Tomorrow take your kids for chicken in a frisbee.

      I KNOW, isn't corn DELICIOUS!!!!!!!

      For the balloons, I did a science experiment ad put bands of duct tape around it. Then I deflated it, and the tape got all shrively.

      Yes, she is.

  8. Always good to have you in da house, Baby E.! Sweet corn is one of the finer things in life, in my opinion. Also, after reading your suggestions for books and toys, I think I need to go shopping. Thanks for the tips!

    1. Your opinion is correct.

  9. Welcome back, Baby E! I can't believe how much you've grown!

    Sweet corn is my all-time favorite in the summer. With just a hint of salt. Mmmm...

    Your mom is pretty awesome with the balloons, eh? I remember field day. Glad you enjoyed yours, too!

    1. Yes, I have grown a lot.

      No, not JUST a HINT of salt. You need LOADS upon LOADS of salt/butter.

      Balloons are awesome.

      You had Field Day?????

  12. Safe and Sound is one of my favorite songs too. Do you like their song "I Sold My Bed, But Not My Stereo"? That's a good one too.

    I think that I am going to fill my car with balloons like that for my daughter's last day of school too. She's only 4 but I think she will really like that a lot.

    Thank you for writing here! I like to hear what you have to say! Have a fun summer!

  13. Baby E, I've missed you! Hexabits sound extremely cool, but for some reason my kids don't like building things. Maybe you could come out east and teach them how fun it is.

  16. Welcome Back E!I think of you and your mom every time it is 11:11 because she told us that you say to do something magical then. I wonder if you do extra fancy stuff since you ARE 11. From all of these pictures and words, it sure does look like you are up to some fun!

  20. Welcome back Baby E!!! Missed you around these parts.
    I had no idea that you called those things cootie catchers. We used to use them to pick out who was going to be your boyfriend...but that was back in the day when we didn't have cool things like hexapasldkfjaslf...I forget how you spell it. But we had legos :)

    1. I missed blogging too.

      They are based on the Japanese model called the Salt Cellar.

      Legos are just as good.

  21. So, E, goot to hear from you again. Guess what? I just got my braces off (yes, I'm almost 40, WHAT'S YOUR POINT?) and you know what I can eat now? CORN! 18 months of cornlessness (well, not really, because I would use a knife and cut it off the cob but seriously, it just made more sense to buy kernel corn until I had my braces off but my husband never listens. Don't be that nonlistening husband, OK? Make corn eating enjoyable for your wife because she's worth it).

    I hope you have a great summer! And the hex things look very cool.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ah, Baby E. You make me miss those simple days of summer and corn on the cob. Can you believe you can't get corn on the cob in France? Or you can, but you it's two cobs, already shucked and wrapped in plastic, and it costs about $5.

    I used to lifeguard at a pool like the one you're jumping into. That was fun.
