He has never gone across the monkey bars by himself before.
My job is to take care of the guinea pig. I don't even care that I have to clean up his poop
I'm learning Lah-un, I mean Latin. It's a dead language, that only those crazy people in that one country in Italy speaks.

I learned the word scyphoscopic - photos with brown and white colors
My flash drive is going to be my life.
I got my birthday treat early from Ms. Perkins, my music teacher.

Kai, along with other students from Odyssey Charter School, had the opportunity to participate in the Hope of America program, the kick off for the Freedom Festival
Here's a video of the event. Kai is a Red Shirt, in the "flag" somewhere.

To steer our conversations away from TV/movies and video games, we have a Let's Talk Bucket filled with little slips of papers asking questions. Most nights, we talk about our day and Liam or DJ asks us "What is your highlight?"
Tonight, Coby took the initiative to ask his own question: What would you be when you grow up, DJ?
