Every year in Diwali, we put up the lights and make delicious sweets. This year, I got involved in  the fun by helping. Diwali is more than just putting up lights and making sweets, it is about having the time to celebrate it with your family. I love Diwali for many reasons and each reason has a story to tell.

Diwali is the festival of lights, so that is why we put up lights. 🎆🎇  We make special sweets for our gods to honor them. The best thing about Diwali is getting presents. Every year, you can ask god for a present you want and you will get it. The present can be anything. Toys,supplies,clothing and even books. This year, I got project Mc2 experiments. I got a perfume maker and H2O nail set. I also got a, Malala and, Girls who changed the world book which, I loved so much! I made a beautiful Vanilla smelling perfume and got to test the H2O nails! The nail kit comes with fake nails that you have to use if you want to do the experiment. ☹️😫👩🏽‍🔬 I made my own sweets with my mom for Diwali! We gave some sweets to my amazing teacher, Ms. Van as a gift!!!  I have to say, India makes the best sweets!!! My friend Stella was really nice to bring me a Diwali present though, she doesn’t celebrate it! In return, we brought homemade and brought from India, sweets to her. I helped my dad put up lights upstairs and also,  helped with putting up decorations. We made them by ourselves! They looked so beautiful when we put them up! They really tied the house together making it look like, Diwali was here!  Diwali was so fun this year! I think, this Diwali is the best yet!!

Diwali is a festival to share with our family and friends! The lights and sweets aren’t just what make up Diwali, it is about who you share it with! I enjoy Diwali for many things but, I will always enjoy it with my family and more!

The bird who lives with us

 We had a family  of birds who have lived just outside our house. They weren’t living in a tree, they were living on a small dry portion on our house. We didn’t know why or what was happening at first then we realized something exciting.

When we found twigs and sticks on our doorstep, we checked to see why they were there. Sure enough there was a bird sitting on top of our window railing over our door siting there quite still. We decided to leave her alone for her business. I was REALLY excited that a bird chose our hose for a place to live. Birds actually build nests when they are about to have babies. Since this built a house, I knew she was a female. She stayed there for weeks and we didn’t know if she was eating or not. Soon enough I found out that there was a different bird that was sitting at the nest. I wondered if this bird was the male and the other was a female. Soon enough the female had laid eggs. Weeks went by and finally they had hatched. I would say they were at least 2cm tall. The babies were so cute. Did I mention that there were 2 adorable little babies huddled together in that nest? One day, there was something so amazing to see that we took a video of it. Here is the video down below. The video is about the female feeding her babies. This was caught up close.


 Many weeks after that, the two parents flew of because the two were able to take care of themselves now. Even though the parents left our house, the two babies still stayed there. My mom got a small styrofoam bowl and filled it with bird seed for the two to eat. One day in the morning, I found one bird looking down at the other bird who was standing on our doorstep. This is because, the one on our doorstep was actually going to eat the food that we left them while, the other was watching out for him in case of danger comes near. The 2 birds lived with us for a few days then left to venture the world. I guess they were done living with us and grew up. 

That is the story of the family of birds. I hope you enjoyed it! Down below, there are two photos of the baby birds who were grown up. Sorry, they may be a little blurry. 😅

Solar eclipse

This Monday there was a solar eclipse happening. There are different types of solar eclipses but, this one was different. In this solar eclipse, the moon was going to block the sun. You couldn’t see the solar eclipse by just looking at the sun, you needed special glasses to see it. In Nebraska you could see the full solar eclipse when, the moon blocks the sun completely.

You could get the glasses in many places. Kroger, 7 Eleven, Walmart, and many more. Every time we looked, they were all sold out or they didn’t have any. Finally, there was a library in Roanoke that would sell them. There you could go outside and see the solar eclipse. We only got to see 75% of the sun get covered in Texas. In the library, there was a huge line to get the glasses. Good thing we came early because, there was a huge line with more than 70 people waiting. The librarians said that they only had 100 glasses so, they told us to share if any adults have children. Since it was only my mom and me, we got one pair of glasses and a pinhole paper. With the paper, you could see the solar eclipse through the pinhole on the ground in the shadows. It would show you the change there was from time to time. We had ordered a special filter for our telescope that would let us see the solar eclipse through it. There was a delay with the shipment that made it come late. The cool part about the solar eclipse was he shadow. This is because, when the sun is shining on the leaves of the trees, it creates a shadow on the ground. Since the solar eclipse was happening, it could be seen on the leaves through the shadows. I thought that was really cool. 

This solar eclipse is one of the most amazing solar eclipses that I have seen. If you have also seen a solar eclipse, then you might have also hought that is was cool. Thanks for reading. 

Here is the picture of the pinhole
Here are the leaves
Here is a pinhole photo of the sun getting covered more.



Acorns are born looking like baby acorns that are small, green and have tiny cupules. When they start to grow they lose their cupules and they grow like a litte bulb that flowers have when they are almost ready for blooming. When they are almost done they grow their cupules again but the cupule turnes out to be a brown color. When the acorns are very old they change from being smooth to rough.Only when they are very old the rough part pushes itself into the cupule and you can see a little bit of the rough part.

A day of nothing

I  did not want to do my homework today but I did want to do tabtor but not blogger. I had some other things to do when I was going to do my homework later when I was done with my shower. Then when I was done with my shower I did not want to do it becuase it is actully so boring and I did not want to do it becuase it was a little bit  hard to do. When I am done with my homework, me and my mom are going to go to walmart and get supplies and shopkins. You have already read that blog. Chintumama could not ship them to me and I think that you did not know that.
