The Light Party


Hi we go to a Church called "HTB" which is short for Holy Trinity Brompton.

There is a thing for kids call CHTB the C stands for children's.

They had a big party called the Light Party.

It was themed on Monsters University co.

I had a ton of fun.

There was crafts and face painting upstairs. Making your own marshmallow snow man that had coconut chocolate chips and of course marshmallows, more crafts making your own snow globe and making ice drinks down stairs. And in the regular floor or the main floor they had games.

Before you went inside they gave you student IDs and you went around the main floor playing games and getting stickers and then getting candy.

It took place the day after Halloween.

There was a fireworks display.

My Mum said it was the best fireworks display ever.

They had an Easter party too.

This was better.

Liverpool

Hi we went to Liverpool, by we I mean My Nana, Grandpa, Brother, and Dad we went mainly because my Nana's mother was from Liverpool. That means that I am English and I think that means we are British as well.

I went to the best hotel we went to so far if you ever go to Liverpool get that hotel it was on 30 James street.

When we got there we relaxed and my grandfather and brother went to get a map.

Like an hour or so later my Nana's cousins were here 3 3rd cousins and 1 4rd cousin, we had some tea a meat platter and the adults had beer and coke.

The next day my Nana and Grandfather left at 9:00 to take a train to Hollyhead and then get a ferry to Dublin to get a plane back to the USA.

So we got breakfast and headed out to do  the bus tour we got off near the Beatles tour.

 And there was a Ferris wheel which we went on then headed up to Albert dock and found a bus stop and hoped on it.

 After we went to the world museum right next to the library and went to the Ssss snakes alive exhibit

When we got out of the museum we went to the beetles cavern and got lunch.

So we went to find the bus stop and got on we went to the  Philharmonic and got Hot chocolate then walked back to the station and on the way we got great cupcakes.


That was our trip to Liverpool.

Hi we went to the Tower Of London it was great.

First I have to tell you about the lunch we had it was the best food we had got so far its called Bodeans BBQ it is in Balham Soho Fulham Clapham and Tower Hill I got the ribs they were small but outstanding.

so first at the Tower we got in line waited for 20 minutes and then pulled out the home ed card which will get us one adult free and it took like 15 minutes just for us to get tickets when we got in we went to the white tower a bit boring  really and long we saw the kings and princes armor and the horses armor then we went to see the ravens then we went to see the crown jewels which i thought was pretty boring the crown jewels at Hampton court palace was better and there was only 1 thing there but it was cool we were in a vault then we did the wall walk it was fun it had a royal animal exhibit don't worry there are no real animals the bloody tower is not that great and the torture room is great my brother gave me the idea to use stinging nettles as a weapon ?

Kew Gardens










Hi I went to Kew Gardens with my grandparents. When we got there, we went to look for the bare foot walk when we can't find it so found we went to the Xstrata and Rhizotron Treetop walkway. Then we went to get some lunch at the cafe it had very little things to eat for a meal. Next we went to the very big huge glasshouse to see a hole floor of plants of all kinds. In the same glasshouse there was a small marine exhibit which had a little 3D show and a few tanks. Still in the same glasshouse there was a  top layer like a small Xstrata and Rhizotron Treetop walkway on the top it was very very very hot we were glad to get down. After that we went to get outside and found a small glasshouse wich had a pond with lilly pads. Soon after that we were heading up to the log trail  where we saw a friend of mine. then we made our way back to the exit.

I had great fun in Kew you should go but remember only go on a VERY sunny day.

All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.

I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years

Spelling


Monday 22 September 2014

Hi this week my spelling words are:

Wrapped
Pleasant
Thoughts
odor
pattern
suddenly
journey
valley
visitor
though.

I like to split them up like if you look at Together and you don't know how to spell it
just split it up like this to get her =together


Wrapped = wrap ped
Pleasant = p lea sent
Thoughts = th ough ts
odor = o dor
pattern = pat tern
suddenly = sud den ly
journey = jou reny
valley = val ley
visitor = visit or
though = th oug h


that's how I think every one should spell.


Love Chrissy.

The London Eye

it was Sunday Morning, and we were waiting for visitors, when they got there we went to church, and then came back, and stared looking up the London eye, and we got the fast track it cost a little bit more, but we got to skip the 2 hour wait just to get tickets and we got to go on the only red car out of 32 cars.
I got to walk on while it was moving, other people it was stopped, after that we did this 4D thing ,which was include with our ticket, then we went to a nearby park it was really small, then took a bus to Convent Garden, and saw this street performer and the girl on stage was wearing a tutu and just dropped it and ran off, the man yelled yes go your like your stupid father, so he came up to me and said I need a new person so I grabbed my coat and ran behind mom, so john went up instead and wore a tutu, so the thing was John and 3 other men stared doing ballet and the crowd  laughed so hard in the end he gave John 5 pounds, then after a while we went back home [there was no other place to eat.]

Love Chrissy.

and told Tilly so with out ma knowing she left when Tilly came home from the day of work her mother was in great shock so she got a job at Frost Hollow hall partly to find out about kit and to help with money and because they needed work you see Eliza took ALL of the money they had left and Mama had to give her Wedding ring away so when Tilly was under the ice and saw Kit's Spirit and he gave he Tilly a ring so when Eliza left she saw the ring and took it and she sent it back she said she just can't sell the ring .

Italy Trip 2

Hi, This time we went to Sicily! We went in late June and early July.

First, let me tell you how we got there: we took a tube(subway) to Victoria and then the Gatwick Express train to the airport, and then a shuttle to the airport, then, a 3 hour plane ride, 2 hour taxi, 1 hour ferry and 5 min taxi to our hotel! Our first stop was on the island of Lipari. We got dinner and went to bed that night.

The hotel had a pool, children's video games and a gym. It also had two rooftop gardens. The smallest one had a hot tub. It was so awesome, because the pool was right outside our hotel room. We went swimming everyday after breakfast.

We had chocolate for breakfast like every day. The first day we kind of hung around, swam and then took a taxi tour which drove us all around the island. The taxi driver gave us a pumice stone as a souvenir. A pumice stone helps dead skin.

Here are the things we did in Lipari:

1) Go to the island of Vulcano and climb up a volcano. It was very long. Dad took us on the wrong path on the way down. There were two paths, one went through the sulphur smoke and the other went the way Dad took us. Which, was the wrong way...
2) We went to a smelly beach on Vulcano, that was right near more sulphur. They had this mud bath that helped your skin and then you can go in hot springs. This meant that the stones on the water were very hot (Mom loved this).
3) Granita's are extremely yummy. They are italian ices, and they are way better than regular ices.
4) We watched fire come down from the volcano on Stromboli from a boat.
5) We went to Panarea, Mom said she would get me a golf cart if we lived there.


Stop 2: Taormina

The hotel was comfortable, it was kind of like an apartment with no kitchen, living room or dining room. There was three rooms, two bedrooms and a bathroom. John  and I had our own beds but we had to share a room. The pool was far, we had to take an elevator to the bottom and then walk down a lot of stairs. But, there was tennis courts and we found a ball.

Here are the things we did in Taormina:

1) Walk down to the beach (it is a long walk) then dad walked up and we took the funicular up.
2) Get yummy food.
3) Hang out in the town square and get me a apron with my name on it, and little light up plane that goes really high (you have to launch it, of course).

And then the trip from Taormina back home was not that far, actually.  Before I go, let me tell you how I got back: 1.5 hour bus to airport, 3 hour plane ride, 30 min Gatwick Express train ride then 7 minute tube ride.

So there you are!  Happy August.

Some Fun With Cousins



Hi, My cousin and my uncle came on a Saturday. My cousin's name is Liza and my uncle's name is Uncle Fred.


On Sunday, we went to Brick Lane and I got a new skirt. Than later in the day, my cousin,uncle, Mom and Dad went to see the Let it Be show, while we had a babysitter or as in should say in London, a childminder.


Monday Lisa and Uncle Fred left to explore before we got up so we just relaxed and did our work and for dinner we went to chipotle with Mom,Lisa and Uncle Fred and John to we didn't leave him home.


Tuesday, again Liza and Uncle Fred left to explore before we got up, so we did our work and relaxed.


Wednesday, we went to this science thing at Morden hall. It was far, we had to get 3 tubes ( subway lines) than walk like 15 minutes. But, we went pond dipping and looked for things in the dirt,trees, and in the meadows. Dad says it was kinda babyish, which is true, but it was still fun.


Thursday, we did relax, but a friend came over from the states, so my mom came home and we packed a picnic for Hyde park. Then, soon Lisa and Uncle Fred came and the friends husband came as well.


Friday, we relaxed and later packed for something.


Saturday, all of us (besides Dad), took a train to Hogwarts...just kidding! But, there was this Harry Potter themed thing, which you could take your picture, looking like Harry Potter for free. But, you do have to pay for the picture in the shop. We got a Hedwig (Harry's owl). We got to York after a 2 hour train ride.


We got tea and then went to this Viking thing. It really smelled, but it was fun. Then, we went to the National Railway Museum. Then got the last chocolate factory tour, with almost aways a sample, YUM! Then, we went back to the hotel and the adults went out to eat and my cousin watched me and John. We had a fun night and my mom let us pick out a movie and get room service for dinner. Yawn, it's time for bed.

Sunday, we went to breakfast downstairs. Then, my uncle and my cousin stayed at the hotel ( my cousin wasn't felling well). So, Mom, John and I went to the castle museum. The museum was really cool, it had dungeons where the prisoners told their story's. It also had this little street that had old fashioned stores that you could go to and in some you could buy stuff like candy (from the old days)and soap. Then, we went to get my cousin. She is 15, so she brought me and John up the castle. Mom and my Uncle did not go though (what a shame, it was beautiful). Then, we went to the York Dungeon. It was ok, I would rate it 3 stars. It was just too long and it gave me a pounding headache. Then, we went back to the hotel to get our luggage and a taxi. Then, we went back to London on a 2 hour train, it was night.

Monday we just relaxed and my cousin and Uncle went out this happened every day in till they left.

My Story Of Gilgamesh and Enkidu

Gilgamesh and Enkidu
A fairytale by Christine Louzonis
Gilgamesh was a horrible king.  He loved children, but he hated people.  He always was happy to let the children come into his castle and explore.  One day, the mailman came and said that he was to die or to be nice to his people.  Gilgamesh thought about this.  Before the mailman left, he said that he had until the end of the week to decide.  This was a hard decision. 
Gilgamesh went off to find the children that were exploring in his castle.  He talked to them quietly about this.  Many of the children agreed to be nice.  But some of them suggested “no”. 
It was the end of the week, Gilgamesh still hadn’t decided.  He had until sunrise.  Enkidu came during the night.  Enkidu is a half man and half animal.  He came from a very faraway place called Unkido, where all the half man and half animal people live.  Enkidu said to Gilgamesh “Go and get your little friends and come with me.”  Gilgamesh wondered what Enkidu meant.  So, he brought the children to him.  He followed Enkidu.  Enkidu took them all to a special island that can make things come true and help you with your problems.  Everyone that needs their problems solved needs to get something special to them.
“The thing that is special to you, Gilgamesh, is children.” said Enkidu. 
Right at that moment, a huge monster came.  The children were so scared, they ran to Gilgamesh.  Enkidu and Gilgamesh started running towards the monster.  They thought they could win a battle with the monster.  They won. 
“Gilgamesh,” said Enkidu, “this is a lesson you will learn.  Being evil to your people makes you suffer.  What have you chosen?” 
“Enkidu, I chose my people.” 

The End
