Hi everyone! I read in a book how to train your mini to jump. I followed the instructions, and my mini seemed to catch on fast. I introduced Geegee (my mini) to a real jump, about a foot off the ground. She didn't know what it was, and looked at me like "What in the world is this?????" I went over it, and then she went over it too. I showed my grandma, and Geegee jumped like she had been doing that for her whole life! Of course, we were facing the gate, so she RAN!! (The book was The Book of Miniature Horses I think.)

Hello! I just got back from a camping trip in Highland Forest with HLACNY (Home Learner's Association of New York State). It was real fun. We all went on hikes, and looked for letterboxes. There was one thing I didn't like, though. The bathrooms were down a hill, and a short walk. It doesn't sound like much, but when you did that about three times a day, it was very tiring. Add in the walk up the hill, and that is VERY tiring. Well, there was an out house, but it was disgusting and stinky. (I'm sure some of you can agree.) There was a meteor shower while we were there, and I saw 5 meteors (just barely the 5th one). To get there, we had to ride in the back of someone's car, and we were SQUISHED!!!!!! (It was worth it, though). On the first night, there was a thunderstorm, and I can't sleep during t-storms, so some of us got up and played Apples to Apples, and then by 12:00 we were all in bed.  The second day, me and a few of my friends ( Dan, Sean, and Michael) played Cat-opoly. Next camping trip, I'm bringing Horse-opoly. Anyway, we played that for a while, from 7:50AM until 10:00 AM, then we all wanted to go outside. It was chilly, but there was a fire (in a fire pit). That night, our friend Miss Gabby taught me and my friends Eve and Emily how to play Mahjong ( I don't know if I even spelled that right).  By the way, my legs hurt from all that hiking and bathroom trips. We had campfire cones for dessert on Saturday night (only me, my mom, Miss Gabby, Macy, and Mandy). They are simply ice cream cones with chocolate chips, marshmallows, and other toppings, wrapped in tin foil, and roasted by the fire. For more info on HLACNY,  visit their website- . They have a lot of cool field trips!

Hi again! I just wanted to know what everyone's favorite hobbies are.  I like to draw, design pretend houses, bake (a lot (:  !), write, be active, train my mini, ride my horse, and cook in the crockpot.

Football Players (favorites)

I just wanted to know who is everyone's favorite football player and why?

Mine is Tim Tebow, because he is a strong Christian man, and plays really well, which is great.

P.S.   Have you read his book? It's really good.

Here is another Greek Myth in my own words.
Hmmm...I wonder if you've heard it before.

Pygmalion and His Wife
     Pygmalion was sad as he chipped away at the cold marble in front of him. He was a clever sculptor, but he couldn't find a wife.
     One day, a friend was watching him work on the statue. "Why are you so sad? There are plenty of girls to marry!"
      "Yes, but I don't like any of them. Some of them are pretty, but cold hearted. I don't want a bad marriage.
     He kept on working, and finally, after weeks of hard work, he was finished. Pygmalion had sculpted a statue of a very beautiful girl. Every day, he fell in love even more with the stone creation. He hung a garland of flowers around her neck.
     A special festival for Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was later that week. Pygmalion asked her if she could make the statue in his workshop come alive. He trudged home, sad and discouraged. Aphrodite heard him, and decided to help him.
     The next morning, Pygmalion walked into his shop, and he noticed that his statue was different. He touched the statue's cheek, but instead of being cold marble, it was human flesh. The stiff body moved, and Pygmalion fell on his knees and thanked Aphrodite for listening to him. Pygmalion called the girl Galatea, and married her. They both lived a happy life together. Finally, Pygmalion was happy.

Again, I appreciate your comments!

This picture is of a mini miniature horse named Einstein. He is so cute!

The Trojan Horse

This is a story of the Trojan Horse in my own words.

     "Hurry!", whispered Odeysseus, "Get in the horse! They will come for it soon!"
Odeysseus and nine other soldiers climbed into the horse, shut the trapdoor, and waited.
    Everyone in Troy was rejoicing that the Greeks had left after a long and terrible war. A young boy had soon spotted the horse and was yelling, "Everyone, look! Look! A war gift from the Greeks!"
    "Let's bring it into the city!" A Trojan yelled.
     Barely heard abve the racket, a soldier yelled, "Open the gates!"
The great oaken gates swung open, and the horse, which was to destroy the city, was wheeled in.
     "Get out. Hurry! Open the gates. The signalman just signaled that the rest are here!" Odeysseus breathed.
     "Yes, sir!  I'll go open the gates." A soldier named Arioles said.
     "Good. Then hopefully, if everything goes well, we'll see you on the ship."
  Suddenly, there was a great clamoring of armor, and thousands of Greeks came charging in, to the suprise of the Trojans.
     "Odeysseus!" A voice yelled.
     Odeysseus turned and looked at who was speaking. " Arioles!"
     "Odeysseus! Take this torch and throw it into the palace!"
     "Yes, now go! Hurry!"
Odeysseus threw the torch, and Troy went down in flames. Troy was destroyed all because of one wooden horse.

I appreciate your comments on this. Thanks!     -fingerlakeshorsegirl

I thought that I would try to get the names of all the volcanoes in the world. Does anyone have some names for me?

How tall is this mountain? (On Google Maps) Just wondering!

Camp E.D.G.E.

Has anyone heard of Camp E.D.G.E.? Me and my sister went there this summer and last summer. I only have one more year to go to this nice Christian camp. But, I can become a CIT (counselor in training) with my best friend from camp, who I met last year. This year the camp was at Davis College. We got to sleep in the dorms. They have tract times, which are like a co-op class, but with kids. I did Cake Boss Jr., but it wasn't taught by anyone from the real Cake Boss. Shoot!

Happy Easter

Happy Easter, everyone! Can everyone tell me what their favorite easter thing is? Mine a re spending time with family, getting easter baskets, and my absolute favorite is that Jesus rose from the dead. In my easter basket I got flannel fabric to make a quilt. Mom says I can start it as soon as our floor is done.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and
only son, that whoever believes in him, shall have eternal life.

laser tag

Yesterday I went to a laser tag place with an orginization called Young Life.   We went to a place in Camillus. Young Life is an orginization to help teens and middle-schoolers to learn more about Christ. The laser tag was VERY fun, though. The highest I got in placings was 9th place. I wish I could do it again!

Water balloons don't make good pets or belong at church or in the car

Macy had a water balloon in the car, and it.... popped! She got all wet. My bottom got wet, along with the back seat and my coat.

The Museum Part

When we were done with the astronaut talk, we walked around the museum.The first thing we saw was a green Chevrolet truck. The bed was filled with purple, blue, yellow, orange, pink, white, red, and frosted white. There also was transparent purple, blue, yellow, orange, pink white, and red flowers. In one part, there was a glass periodic table and a 6ft diameter copper wire. The copper wire takes as much power as a single optic wire thread to transmit info.

     The speed of light goes fastest through air, slower through water, and slowest through glass. Macy lost her bag in the giant black egg, and they had to take out a floor panel to get it.

     We went to a glass show where they blow glass. It was really cool. There was a bowl, and the lady put it in the heating oven and spinned it faster, and it turned into a platter thingy. The glass-blowing furnace had been running non-stop since September 2008! The guy said the microphone gave him an Australian accent, but I think he was pretending.

     We saw a giant bowl of fruit that had a pear, apple,orange, lemon, and a peach. There was a fish lamp and a squid lamp, and a thing that looked like coral. There also were tiny glass houses with glass knives raining down on them.(Which I don't understand) There were giant flower petals, a glass ball that looked like it was made of yarn, and a mish-mash of dishes and vases(In one sculpture). Also there was a giant swirled plate, a glass TIRE, a bead as big as Grace's fist, and a pretty turquoise vase.

     A blowing glass factory scene was there, too. There was a giant glass tube that I could fit into, a giant crystal vase,(I know, this sounds boring, but it was really cool!) and a giant blue, white, and red candy cane.

     The next thing we saw was a coral reef in a ball,Tiffany stained glass, a bajillion  paperweights, a bunch of glass chairs, a Jewish and Roman Catholic chess board, where the chess pieces were made to look like Bishops and Rabbis. A bajillion vases, an 'Ionic structure of glass',(does anyone know what 'Ionic' means?) a glass bear, a glass marble toy thingy, and a huge green fern statue.

     We did sand blasting. You put stickers on a bowl, cup, mug, jar, or plate. I did a bowl and put 'Haley' on the bottom of it.Then you spray it with sand in a special machine. After that, we looked very briefly at the Frederick Curat (I think) gallery. There were blue, gold, white, green, pink, purple, red, orange, and frosted glass. The room was almost as big as a baseball field! So that was our fun day!                                                                      -Haley

John 13:34
A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must
love one another.

Space Talk at Corning Museum of Glass

At the Corning Museum of Glass, we listened to an astronaut named Cady Coleman. On her 1st flight into space, she orbited the earth 200 times. She plays the flute. She says, "To be an astronaut, you must be something else first."

    When she went to the ISS,(International Space Station) the Russian on her crew didn't smile in his official picture, because that's what Russians do, I guess.(He was happy, though :) They don't take showers and they can be on the ISS for months at a time! They go #1 in a funnel, and it gets recycled and they drink it!!!!! Yuk!!!
     When something outside breaks, they have to go outside and fix it. They also have to do plenty of health tests, because they aren't walking, they are floating! One guy played baseball ... by himself!!! He threw the ball, floated under it, batted it with a flashlight, and floated after the ball, and caught it in a front-flip!(I think that would be awesome!)
      They eat things like beef stew, chicken, beef, and (my favorite) mac-n-cheese. Their sleeping bags are hooked to the wall, and they sleep (in the sleeping bag, of course) standing up! (I wouldn't like that one bit)
Cady played a flute duet in space with someone on earth. They go around the earth 16 times a day, with 45 minutes of day, and 45 minutes of night per go-around. That would be 16 bedtimes a day! (of course they don't have that many bedtimes) They land in a capsule with a parachute, and people meet them at their landing place in Russia. That was the space talk! Oh, yeah. There were gummy bears floating in the air, and someone grabbed them with their mouth and ate them.  -Haley

Stories from my own mind

Be Anything

If you travel to Wyoming, you will find the horse farms there astonishingly beautiful. They are dusty, grassy, and very large and enjoyable. On one of these farms there was a Pinto horse named Fearless, and a Quarter horse named Spots. There also was a Draft horse named Pete, a Shetland Pony named Cookie, and their owner, Eva. Eva was a barrel racer. Astonishingly, they were able to understand each other, even though they didn't speak each other's language.

     Fearless wanted to be a bucking bronco, but he didn't know how!
"Oh, how will I ever be in the rodeo?" he worries.
"You are only good for giving children pony rides." Cookie criticized.
"Spots will teach you how!" Pete exclaimed excitedly.
"Yay! Now I will learn to be a bucking bronco!" yelled Fearless. He practiced numerous times a day, which helped him improve. Sneakily, Eva watched him the whole time.
"Wow! What a great bronco!" she thought.
     They waited endlessly to see if Fearless was chosen for the rodeo. Finally, Eva ran up to them and gasped, "I have astonishing news! Fearless was chosen to be in the rodeo!"
"Yippee!" they all shouted. (except for Cookie, who criticized, as you can imagine)
Fearless went on to be a great bronco, and won many prizes. He learned that you can be anything if you work hard to be what you want to be.


This blog is for school, but it is NOT graded (thank goodness :) I am not much of a writer. I can't ever think of anything to write. Even so, I CAN write. I am in the process of writing a story. I can think of things to write, because it is not a school assignment.

Galatians 5:22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse
us from all unrighteousness.

1 Peter 4:8
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
