My boy and I go outside and he runs to the tank.
First we meet the cats and they try to pull my strings.
They we meet the ducks and they run and we run to.
Then we go in and he takes us off.
We are so thankful we did not step in any poo.
We had a fun and eventful summer full of friends, family, and lots of fish.
Here are some interesting facts about the beta. When mating the male beta makes a bubble nest. When that is done the female comes up and lays the eggs. The male fights off other betas including the female when the eggs hatch. The baby fish will stay with the male until they are old enough to fight for themselves.
Goldfish are the most interesting house fish. They like to eat algae and other things such as plants and bugs. They also need lots of air or they will die, so you need to always circulate their water. ~Isaac.~

The White Kitten
My little white kitten's asleep on my knee;
As white as the snow or the lilies is she;
She wakes up with a purr When I stroke her soft fur;
Was there ever another white kitten like her?
My little white kitten now wants to go out
And frolic, with no one to watch her
"Little kitten," I say,
"Just an hour you may may stay,
And be careful in choosing your places to play."
But night has come down, when I hear a loud mew;
I open the door, and my kitten comes through;
My white kitten! ah me!
Can it really be she-
This ill-looking, beggarlike cat that I see?
What ugly, gray streaks on her side and her back!
Her nose, noce as pink as a rosebud, is black!
Oh, I very well know,
Though she does not say so,
She has been where white kittens ought never to go.
If little good children intend to do right,
If little white kittens would keep themselves white,
It is needful that they
Should this counsel obey,
And be careful in choosing their places to play.
From Poems for Memorization by Rod & Staff Publishers
Dragons are ruthless.
Dragons are not toothless.
Most of all, they fly
All the way up to the sky.
They walk on the ground.
They can swim all around.
I never heard a dragon lie.
They blow fire. Oh, my!
Rome is the capital of Italy. Rome had a Republic from 509-27 BC and an Empire from 27 BC-475 AD. The people of Carthage used elephants to fight the Romans. It did not work. Rome now rules through the catholic church. ~Marshal
Legos were invented by Ole kirk Christiansen after WWI in Denmark. Christiansen's company's name was lego. The word lego in Danish means play well. Legos were wooden but expanded to plastic toys in 1947. I like legos because they stack on top of one another. ~Isaac
Playing with stop motion with our legos. It took, like, an HOUR to make this one minute video! We made a video before this one (thus why this one is called "Ep. 2"), but we didn't like it so well... so we are only showing this one...for now.
In England the greyhounds were used to hunt deer because the greyhound can run very fast and jump wide trees. Greyhounds were also used in Egypt because these hounds can stand heat. A greyhound named Azor was a German war dog. He was helpful to General Washington in the American Revolution. Greyhounds weigh up to 65 to 70 pounds and are tall. they come in different colors and like chickens to eat. ~Bunny
