I am thankful for family,friends,food,soil,and nature. If I never had family or friends then I never would have had anybody to look after me or stand up for me. I am thankful for food because 1 I would probabaly be starving to death everyday and 2 I woul be too weak to survive and never be strong. I am thankful for soil and nature because without soil we wouldn’t have any vegetables or fruits and we wouldn’t have any paper,money,rubber,leather,meat,milk,cream, and butter. All of these are important to me more than anything so that is why I am thankful for these things. 

Top Dog

Every 6 weeks we do a special ceremony in school called awards. Last year I was Top Dog for being trustworthy. I was able to be trusted like a real trustworty person should be. I was Top Dog on the same day my bestie Stella got Top Dog. Now she is Top Dog with Loseli who is in my class this year. I hope that I am Top Dog this year. It is actually something that everyone is hoping to get each year.  This is a really big deal for everyone to get Top Dog because, you get to look for a new Top Dog sometimes. I was freaking out when I heard that I was Top Dog last year because,this was the first time I had ever gotten a special certificate that is called Top Dog!I was even more shocked when my very own bestie was a Top Dog too. I loved being a Top Dog for 6 whole weeks! That was the best momment in my life. Anyway, Top Dog is really awesome, cool, and you might even earn it for 6 whole weeks if you got to Beck elementry. Every 6 weeks you might see your teacher looking for a Top Dog,even without knowing it might even be you, you will just have to wait and see. Just be either trustworthy,respectful,caring,have citizenship, or any other character traits that will make you Top Dog.I really love being Top Dog and I hope you do too. This will be the best momment ever for you just like I did!


Diwali is a holiday that Hindus do. Day #1: build. We first built a kila [ keeh-lah]. On the kila we put soilders and farmers plus some women. On the very tippy top we put a king named Shivaji Maharaj. We used,soil, pots, water, and chalk to make this work. This is the first thing you do on Diwali. 

Day #2: presants! On the second day I looked for presants when I was done taking a shower and helped my mom. We made food, hung up decorations, and even made rangoli [ ra-n-gol-ee].My first presant was a chef club shoppies doll from shopkins. I loooooooved it so much.

Day # 3: decorate. We got up early and took a oil shower. Next we got our big box of kandils and started decorating the house. Then we got our lights out and put them on our walls all over. When we were done we had a cooked dinner made by my mom and prayed to our gods. 

Day #4: sweets. We made alot of sweets. So we decided to share with our friends. I shared with my bestie Stella. She really loved the sweets. We made rangoli again and I got a amerigan girl doll knitting set.We also did Lakshmi pooja and prayed to her. I even went to a diwali party with my mom at a friends house.

Day#5: End. This is the last day of diwali. We lit candles all over the house and blew them out when we were done. I got new boots, a new shoppie doll, and american girl doll acssesories.We made more sweets and turned on all the lights in the house. It was the festival of lightso we had lights on everywhere. Then we did mini fireworks at our house and also with our friends. We even had decolights and those lit our house outside. That is all about my diwali this year I hope you enjoy this.
