My Awesome Creation

At school, instead of the science fair we had the Invention Convention where we had to invent something useful. So, I decided to invent the Robotic Toaster Cannon.

First you put the bread in the opening on the top and then, once the bread is in, you turn on the heating pads by turning the left knob. Once the bread's ready, you push the button on the top on the left side that sprays the butter. Once that's ready, you aim with the right knob and push the red button and the toast shoots out the slots and goes "splat" on the plate.

The toaster cannon is useful because you won't burn your hands anymore, there's no work with the bread but there is some work with the knobs and buttons and everything.

I tried the bread and I said, "Not bad!" Ha Ha.

If you want to buy one, it's only $99.99. If you buy it today, you get the Net Blaster to shoot away the pesty flies. You can change the size of the net (extra nets not included.)

Only Two More Months

I can't wait--I just can't wait. It is only two months from today that I get to go back to Italy to see all my friends. Then I get to stay there for two months. I wish we were moving there again so that I could go to school there next year. But, gramma and papa said we can't because the dollar is so bad and that I need to get my education here. I wish we could.

I can't wait to see Camilla and Tommy and all the others and Signora Franca and Sara and Bruno.

Sharks Swim--I Drive... or... from Hawaii to Savannah

I'm Back-------aaaaaaaaaa--a shark got me. Haaaaa...just kidding.

For Spring break I went to Hawaii. First we went to the island of Maui where I made two friends. One was named James and the other was named Sebastian. I had fun with both of them. James left two or three days earlier than us. He was either 8 or 9. Sebastian was eleven years old but in fifth grade.

While we were on Maui we went to a really cool aquarium. They had turtles there and hammerhead sharks and one leopard shark. There was a big water tank with two guys in it with a bunch of fish and sharks but they didn't eat them. Did you know that most sharks that killed people were by accident. They thought the people on the boards were seals because they have very bad eyesight. But they have a very good sense of smell. They can smell blood over a mile away.

Here's a picture of a manta ray in the tank.

Here's a video of the aquarium.

After Maui we went to Oahu and I slept over at my friend's Reese's house for two nights. He lives right on Sunset Beach with turtles. Gramma and Papa stayed with Ann and Paul who are good friends of ours. Gramma thinks they have the perfect house--but it really isn't good for kids--except the beach part.

This is me and Reese.

This is Ann

When we were going to get shaved ice and I saw a seal. Nobody believed me but we went back and I was right. It was an Hawaiian monk seal.

One day we went to a waterfall. While I was taking pictures of this peacock, he started squawking and it scared me half way to death. I remember it as if it was two weeks ago.

After we went there, we went back to San Diego for a week and then we went to Savannah. I finally met Chiaro di Luna. She was really, really nice and I really like her. She brought me an original Red Sox baseball shirt because she asked a question on my blog of what teams I liked. I told her the Red Sox and the Chargers and so she gave me a Red Sox shirt and I was so happy. Thank you, Chiaro. I wish you said OK to your picture, but since you said no, I won't.

One day we had a Slow Travel gathering and I was bored there for a while. Then Mary, said "OK, I'll let you use my scooter." I didn't know what she meant but when she showed me I got excited. I went out into the square and rode it. Here's a video of it. Thank you, Mary.

Another day we went to lunch with Barb on Tybee Island. We went to a place called the Crab Shack. After we ate, I got to feed alligators with a stick or pole made out of bamboo. There was this one alligator that just ate the whole bag of meat. While they eat, they go into the water. It is weird and I don't know why.

Ahhhhhhh--the gnats got me! Gotta go, bye.

Yes, I Am Still Here

I haven't written in a while because I was in Hawaii and then I had a lot of homework to do--like invent a Robotic Toaster Cannon.

Tomorrow we fly to Savannah, Georgia for 6 days.

When we get back, I promise I will write something interesting.
