Dressing Up

I like to dress up. It's fun pretending to be different people. Today we took photos of some on my favourite costumes.

The Fairy

As a fairy I've been working in the garden. I've also been to fairy meetings, saved the fairy queen, and used lots and lots of magic. Oh, and fairy dust.

The Tiger

As a tiger I like to play with Sophie, who is another cub. We roll in the grass, and run for ages playing tip.

Snow White

I got my Snow White dress for Christmas last year. I like the feather boa. It's tickly round my neck.


As a librarian I help Sophie check out her favourite books from my library. I even have the glasses too!

Office Worker

I work at the back of the dentist, talking on the telephone all the time, filing papers in my briefcase, and making appointments. Sometimes I wear a tie that reaches down to my ankles.

The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall

Mum has been reading me and Sophie a series about a family called the Penderwicks. The Penderwicks have lots of adventures with a boy called Jeffrey. They get into lots of trouble in their adventures, but they always manage to get out of it.

The Penderwicks are four sisters, Rosalind, Skye, Jane, and Batty.
Rosalind is 12. She bakes brownies. She looks after her three sisters. She is the eldest.

Skye is 11. She likes to do maths. She also likes to play soccer and do archery. She isn't very patient and doesn't like looking after her sisters.

Jane is 10. She to like write books about a girl called Sabrina Starr. She likes to play soccer and do archery. She a bit dreamy.

Batty is 4. She likes to play games with Hound the dog. She always wears her butterfly wings. She's a bit shy.

Mr Penderwick talks in Latin. The girls can't understand what he says, but they're used to it.
We've read two Penderwick books. The first book is called The Penderwicks. The second book is called The Penderwicks on Gardam Street. We're reading the third book now. It is called The Penderwicks at Point Mouette.

We love hearing about the Penderwicks. My favourite characters are Skye and Jane.

The Bush Walk

Imogen was going to work. Mum suggested that we should go for a bush walk. We made some hot chocolate and put it in a flask. We all found our cameras to take with us.
We dropped Imogen off at work, then went to the shop to buy some marshmallows. When we got there, the shop didn't have any marshmallows. So we got some almond fingers instead. We also got some bubble bars, and some chocolate.

We went to the park, where the bush walk was. We walked along the track. Every two seconds we stopped to take photos of plants. Then we reached some big rocks. Mum took some photos of us sitting on the rocks.
After that, we had some chocolate before going back to the park. On the walk back we found some stripy rocks. Then we had our afternoon tea. Then it was time to pick Imogen up and go home.
I enjoyed going on the bush walk because we got to walk through the bush and take lots of photos. I would like to go on another one soon.
