My karate brother

 Recently R2 has been wanting to do karate like me. One day I told him I could teach him and he agreed. I had no idea what I was in for.

 I started him out with doing some stretches when I discovered he couldn't do jumping jacks. We spent the rest of the day working on them.
 The next day he didn't want to do 10 jumping jacks.  Things went on like this for a while.

It was about a month later when my mom offered to take him to my instructor, Master Hill. I could help Read at home. It sounded fine to me, so he borrowed my old white belt and tested out a class.

 One day he told me his favorite part of class was running after stretches.
 At the dinner table a week later, Mom suggested why doesn't Read wait until he was older, so he could enjoy it and he agreed. So I'm back to by myself. But I really don't mind.

It's not exactly a dog...

Ever since Duncan and Chloe (Our pet dachshunds) died, my mom, my siblings and I have been wanting a dog. My dad doesn't want a dog because of all the things we'll have to do for it. So my mom got something different and this is how it happened...

My mom and I were on a date together and my dad texts her. The text said my dad crashed his new drone so of course Mom calls him and asks him what happened. He told her it was just a joke but  Mom was pretty startled, she decided to get back at him.

We went to Walmart to pick up a few things and I told her remember how I used to beg to look at the fish every time we came to Walmart and could we go see them now. We went over there and were looking at the fish when she grabs a fish bowl, colored gravel to put in it, fish food, and she told me to pick out a Betta Fish. When I asked her what she was doing, she told me she was getting back at my dad for scaring her by telling her he crashed the drone

After going home we all put a name in a hat and drew for the name. He was named Wasabi and he is a Blue male Betta Fish. So we have a pet that was a prank.

Johnson City Science Mill

I totally recommend this children's museum. True, it does not look like much from the outside, but you should give it a chance. After you create a digital robot avatar-which will teach you about certain things in the museum- You just need to start exploring. There is a model of Romanesco Broccoli (Which you can see Read with in this picture), Animated Texas animals, which you can control, Makey Makey, and much more than I can explain or remember.

Dogs biggest fan

For Bella's date she requested that Mom take her to the animal shelter. Bella loves dogs with all her heart, so she brought a book along to read to the dog. I guess she wanted to look like a pet too, because she wore her gray ears. She (of course) picked a dachshund named Porsha. Porsha sounds like a name of a car, but Bella named one of her Beanie Boos after the dachshund. You probably won't find anyone who loves dogs like Bella does. Please visit the local animal shelter and be with a dog for just a few minutes. They really do like it.
