Need the perfect gift for mom or grandma? Come check out my mom’s new sewing website my dad and I have been helping her create. My mom does all the sewing and I help her with a lot of the cutting in my free time. Right now, there are garden size flags for Valentine’s day and St. Patrick’s day. I have lots of ideas for more. I also help her think of designs. It’s a lot of fun! My mom plans on some Easter flags soon with even stuffed bunnies! I’m going to be in charge of helping her name them so they will all have their own name and be ready for their forever home.
HOW TO GET THERE:
Well, there are multiple ways to get to her website but here’s probably the easiest way.
Go to sewkatie.com
Scroll down and the link for her Etsy store is there.
The second way is to go directly to Etsy.com
Then go to the search bar and look up sewkatiestore and it will come up.
And finally, if you don’t feel like doing any of these things, here’s the link. SewKatieStore

Act 1; Scene 1
It’s the middle of the school day and Leli was bored. Bored, bored, bored.
Leli: Isn’t Geometry the worst Nolen?!?
Nolen: I hear you…
Leli: I wish that something interesting would happen. Don’t you?
Nolen: (sleeping; snoring)
Mrs. Dessert: Leli Nutcase! No talking during lessons! We have recess in a couple of minutes so just calm down or you’ll have to spend it with me. Now, where was I?
Act 1; Scene 2
A little while later…
(The class is lead out to recess)
Leli: Hey, Nolen! Want to play four square?
Nolen: (Mumbling) Yeah, sure. (sluggishly walks over to the court with Leli excitedly hopping next to him)
Leli: Is something wrong, Nolen?
Nolen: No. NOTHING IS WRONG! WHY WOULD YOU THINK THAT?!?
Leli: Just wondering. You’ve seemed very sad and tired lately.
Nolen: (stops Leli from walking by standing in front of her while glaring at her) NOTHING is wrong. Stay out of my Problems!
Leli: Ok, Nolen. Jeez. (finishes getting over to the four square court and starts to play but keeps a frown on his face)
Act 1; Scene 3
Science Class (A few days later, almost time to leave)
(Nolen asks to go to the bathroom and the teacher says yes)
Mrs Dessert: (squinting at her computer) Leli, will you come up here? It looks like you and Nolen are the only group who didn’t finish your science project. That was due 3 days ago, Miss Nutcase.
Leli: Sorry Mrs Dessert, I’ll go over to Nolen’s today so we can finish it. I’ll tell him when he gets back.
But Nolen didn’t come back. Leli thought he went home without her. He was still distressed so…
Act 2; Scene 1
Going to Nolen’s house
Leli had just arrived at Nolen’s house. She went up and knocked on the door. KNOCK KNOCK! Mrs. Frize answered the door.
Mrs Frize: Hi, Leli! How are you? Can I do something for you?
Leli: I’m good. Is Nolen home?
Mrs Frize: Yes, he’s home. (Suddenly worried tone of voice) But… he hasn’t been himself lately. He’s depressed and he won’t let me talk to him! Has he been the same at school?
Leli: Yeah. Maybe he just is worrying about other stuff. Maybe he’ll let me talk to him.
Mrs Frize: All right dear, I was planning on going to the store. I won’t be longer than 2 hours.
Leli: OK Mrs. Frize, we’ll be fine.
A few minutes later Leli is alone in the Frize’s house walking up the stairs.
Nolen: Go away! (Opens the door and glares at Leli)
Leli: EEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPPPPPPPP! Nolen?!
Nolen: Shush up, buttercup. Now why are you here? If it’s about that dumb science project, you might want to go home. I threw it out the window and watched a big rig run over it. It almost lit the truck on fire!
(Nolen faints to the ground)
Leli: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! NOLEN?!?!?!
(Rushes out of the room)
Act 2; Scene 2
What Happened To Nolen
Leli sped down the stairs and ran the faucet and filled a cup with freezing water. She runs back up and splashes it on Nolen. He immedeiatly came back..
Leli: You nearly gave me a HEART ATTACK, Nolen!
Nolen: Sorry, I was just…
Leli: Just what Nolen, JUST WHAT!
Nolen: Defry Badness
The boy who was known for ripping butterflies wings off and snapping little trees. Great.
Leli: What did he do Nolen?!?
Nolen: Drugs. He forced me to do them, said it would make me happy. It does. (Grins maliciously)
Leli: How long have you been doing them?!? (slaps him)
Nolen: OW! 3 weeks. But don’t you dare touch them. (He looked nervously at a box in the corner.)
Leli: I have to get them Nolen, they can really hurt you. (Runs over to the corner and picks up the drugs and runs away as fast as she can)
At that exact moment Mrs. Frize comes home.
Mrs. Frize: Are you OK, Leli? What’s in the box? Why are you running? (concerned look)
Leli: Oh, Mrs. Frize. I found out why Nolen is the way he is. He… He’s on drugs.
Mrs. Frize: NOLEN!!!!! Who gave them to him?!? Wh-wh-why?
Leli: A kid at school, named Defry Badness. (Gives Mrs. Frize the box)
Mrs. Frize went up to Nolen’s room and gives him a STERN talk. She grounds him but also thanks the world that Nolen is alright. She tells him that he will have to live without them.
Act 2; Scene 3
Defry Badness was serving in school suspension for a whole month for having drugs and giving them to other students. His parents were told and at home he was grounded for as long as he lived under their roof. Nolen was getting used to not having drugs and was becoming happier.
I am going on a vacation to Cape Cod next week. I am going to be in Cape Cod, Massachusetts from July 14th to July 22nd. My Mom, my Dad, and my 2 little brothers, Finn and Grayson are coming too. We are staying at my Aunt and Uncle’s beach house. We are doing a LOT of packing. Packing for a baby, a toddler and a 10 year old plus themselves is a lot of work for my parents. Hopefully we don’t forget anything. With our luck we will. I’m going to probably sleep the whole 7 hours in the car because we are going to be driving at night. When we get to the beach we plan collect a lot seashells because we started a collection from the last time we went.
STAY TUNED FOR MY ADVENTURES IN CAPE COD!
(I’ll put them up after I get back…)
Have A Good Day!
As of today, we have 2 more days left of school! Technically we have 1 because we have 2 half days (Half+Half=Whole). I have to saw goodbye, to my teachers Mr. Arena (Homeroom), Mr. Geiman (Reading) and Ms. Wachter (Math). Today we got people to sign our yearbooks so we can remember them. I got almost all of the girls to sign my book. I don’t want to leave 4th grade. It was really fun! Today to celebrate the last few days of school, we’re having a “party”. We are having a Mario Kart Tournament and are have Maple Bacon Long Johns from Shady Maple.

I went to France in 2015-October 5th through to the 15th. I went on an about 10 hour plane ride to get to France from here in Pennsylvania. When I went to France it was my first time riding in a plane. We stayed at a small hotel called “Hotel De La Porte Doree“. We stayed in 2 different rooms. We had to switch once because the bedroom was too small to fit me, my grandma and my grandpa.
The main reason that we came to France was to see the Eiffel Tower. We did! We rode as high as you can go to the top. It was very windy at the top. We saw many other sights. We saw Notre Dame Cathedral and heard the bells in the cathedral ringing grandly. We went to the Louvre and also the Louvre Museum and saw the Mona Lisa and many other paintings and pieces of art. Also we went to… DISNEYLAND! I had a LOT of fun. I got to go on a roller coaster that had a 360 degree loop in it and another on that went upside down completly!
They also had great food. We loved this one restaurant called “Les Cascades“. It is a 2-3 minute walk from the hotel we were staying at. We went their every single day for dinner and sometimes we went there for lunch and dinner! We loved the food in Paris, France. The only bad things on the trip were that:
- I REALLY missed my mom, dad and little brother, Grayson. (If you know about my baby brother Finn, he wasn’t in this world then.)
2. We were almost tricked my an old woman. She asked if the ring that she “found on the ground” was ours. I think it was her ring but she wanted us to fall for and then she would get us arrested. ❓❗❓
This is a recount of my glorious trip to Paris, France.
(P.S. Below is a slideshow about some things that I learned about France. Thanks for Reading!)
On the first time that I did this activity I first visited Jayden’s Artisticly Amazing Blog. Then I visited Rebecca’s Blog titled, “What’s Up Rebecca?”. Last I went to Linnea’s Awesome Blog and read “Apple Tree Poem Written by: Linnea!” because I like reading poems.
On the second time I did this activity I started by visiting Molly’s Magical Blog. Then I visited Summer’s Amazing Blog. Last, I visited Charlizea’s Blog called, “Dazzle With Char“. On her blog I did a quiz about school. I did this survey called, “How Is School Going?” because I like doing surveys.
On the third time I did this activity I started with Jayden’s Artisticly Amazing Blog again. Then I went to Jacob’s Blog called, “JacobN“. Last I visited Alyson’s Blog and read Sixth Grade to Seventh Grade. I chose to read this because I wanted to read about 6th graders going to 7th grade.
