Colonial Glassmaker

Another day as glassmaker. Today 14 people ordered a glass vase or cup. I at least need ten done today at this rate! Before I started, I needed to replace the crucible (blending pot). Also, everyday I need sand and certain chemicals. The different types of glass decide the price. Soda-lime glass is thick, dark and hard to see though. It was also the first glass in the colony. People liked it better as windows than olskins. Flint glass is stronger and clearer. American glass came later and was hand blown. It was the most delicate. I have now finished collecting sand and I already had leftover chemicals, so I started making glass! I melted the things and got started. I molded it until the glass was dry. Just 13 more to go!

One Halloween Night

One night on Halloween before the sun went down, I was in a laboratory with my friends with my friends, Aubrey, Olivia, Mykey, and Lexi and my other friend Andee; got turned into a witch last night by who knows! The thief also stole her most prized possession! So now she’s an evil witch and we can’t even talk to her! She’s also pounding on the door. “Now were stuck in the laboratory forever,” I thought aloud. Lexi stated that it had to be one of us of Andee’s parents, since the doors were locked and we slept over with her. We all wondered why Andee couldn’t just use a spell to get in because she is a which. Suddenly, Mykey yelled, “WE can just make a spell to turn her back into a human!” “But we don’t know how to make a spell.” Aubrey told her. “How about we interview her parents if we ever get out!” declared Olivia. “I know! We can use a chain saw and start to cut a hole in the wall like a door and when Andee hears it she will run towards it and we will sneak out the real door. Ready? Set? Gooooooo!” Aubrey commanned. So that was not right! We couldn’t turn on the chain saw, and when we did…we cut straight though the wall and sliced up Andee’s which hat! We raced though the real door until we reached her house! Her parents were startled and wondered why we were here. We told them that “Somebody stole her trophy for 1st place track and turned her into a which!” That’s when Andee’s dad ran into the bathroom. We now know it’s him He came out as a zombie! Wait no! Somebody else did! It looked like a robo-zombie! This is so confusing! “This robot was hiding in the shower and it’s not my fault! He stole the biggest trophy to make his costume. He told me! I couldn’t tell my wife or Andee and now Andee’s an evil which!” Her dad confessed. “Knock! Knock!” It was Andee! “I made a human potion in advance!” He opened the door…Andee was holding a chain saw! Her dad poured the potion on her and…POOF! The chain saw flew across the room and sliced the zombie an half and turned into a trophy again! And all was well! The End!!!

Pumpkin Patch

The giant, orange pumpkins are at the grand pumpkin patch. Fat pumpkins, small pumpkins, red pumpkins too. Also, the pumpkins are by the great big barn with windows and doors. Also, the green trees of many sizes. It looks like a nice, friendly place. The pumpkin patch is cool in autumn.

Homecoming

Homecoming in White Oak is a big deal. That’s because it only happens every three years. But when it does happen lots of events happen on that weekend like Roughneck Days. Other schools have it every year, so it makes it more special in White Oak. The years I will be doing it is 8th, 11th, and collage. I also did it this year and in 2nd grade.

9/11 Reflection

9/11 is a day that everyone remembers. Even people that were not in America when it happened were still effected. In Gander, Canada, people had to stop flights for 3-5 days and the townspeople took care of them. “The Come From Away’s”, visitors didn’t want to leave. Also, the other events are important t00.Image result for 9/11 photos
