More About Me. Part 1

This is a speech I wrote about 4 months ago for our speech club:

I remember when I was a youngster I pictured adult life as easy and relaxing whereas a boy’s life was hard and grueling. As a boy you had to do school almost every day, especially on the sunny days. The days that were perfect playing outside and digging dirt fortresses and having mud ball fights and spitting contests and bike rides to the candy store and sword fights and battles with imaginary orcs and trolls and having mud ball fights and tree climbing and bug catching and fort building and.....Did I mention mud ball fights? It was those sunny days that you were cooped up inside doing school and countless other things such as chores. Life was hard! Contrast that to the adults life who had all the money in the world(enough to buy out the candy store), and who had all the special privileges such as staying up late and eating ice cream on the couch. This was more or less my world view as a 6-year-old boy. But it didn’t last long. When I thought about what it must be like to be my Mom or Dad I realized life wasn't so easy for them, especially since they'd given birth to a hyper-active rascal of a maniac like me. My world view has certainly changed since I was a 6-yr-old and I would like to tell you a little more about me.

First, I'd like to tell you what I enjoy, second, why I think homeschooling is important, and last, what my ambitions are.

Yesterday's Happenings

This whole week has been spring break for us because dad doesn't have to go to work. So its been pretty relaxed. Yesterday I did some gardening for mom and then we drove to piano lessons in the afternoon.
I've been learning piano for about a year a half.....maybe less, and I'm not really that good. Right now I'm learning a really hard Jazz song called "Twilight". Its hard because of the huge unpredictable chords that are full of sharps and flats. While Alexa and Caleb were getting their lessons, that's when I did my first post. (I have a portable laptop, you see, with a wireless connection which is convenient for when I have go somewhere).

Afterward we went to the Grange Co-op and I bought 2 bags of chicken feed (I own 15 egg machines, you see) and 2 dried pig ears. The pig ears tasted reeeeaaallllly good! least for our dog, Macy. She loves me now. I wonder why.

After that we went home and Mom finished the other half of my haircut. You see.....2 days ago Alexa (my younger sister) started cutting my hair (It had gotten kinda long) and gave up (shes a good hair cutter but she doesn't think so) so Mom continued where she left off. And Mom made a few mistakes so it was kinda choppy and uneven. That was on Thursday, so Mom finished it yesterday. Then we went to a wedding after dinner.
Joshua Oliveri and Rachel Owen got married.It was a very nice wedding....with lots of food. We and some other families helped with the clean-up afterward. And we also got a bunch of extra left-over cake. Three platters full in fact.It was lots of fun and we got home about 11:30 pm.
