book report 1



Happy Halloween! Today is book report day so I have decided to post on The Vikings Revenge, a book I found at my local library. I would highly recommend this book. It is about two boys who go back in time to fix different people's past. Along the way they face different dangers and meet new people.

There are 6 books in the series as of October 31, 2016. Here are the current topics:

  • Vikings
  • Egyptians
  • Spartans
  • Samurai
  • Knights
  • Gladiators

One of the things I really like about this series is that it teaches about the weapons used in history and about the religions they practiced.

The Great Outdoors

Hello viewers I am very sorry I have not been able to post sooner.  From now on I'm going to try to post every Wednesday and do a book report every Monday.
Lately I have been outside a lot working on my fort. I have been enjoying the weather because its perfect for going outside. My first shelter I made from smaller trees I cut down and striped, along with large limbs I found. Then I cut down small cedar trees to cover my shelter. My second fort I am still working on, instead of cedar trees is going to be covered in leaves. I have additionally made a bark container out of hot cedar resin, bark and a thin piece of wood along with another container I made out of twine and sticks. I happened to find a giant rock and lugged it to my fort. I also have a bench way up in a pine tree but it is not shown in the pictures. I recently found I have neighbors, a huge hive of bees. We have a truce if they don't bother me I won’t bother them. you might notice I have charcoal in an old pan I found it is to rub on my hands when I make a trap to keep my scent off of it.
I'm beginning my second fort

    Chicks

    To start I would like to apologize for not posting in a long, long, long,[you get the point] long time.
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    For one of my brothers birthdays, he asked for an incubator [a machine which hatches eggs]   my sister and I thought he was crazy why would want a incubator for his birthday? we already had chickens that were laying eggs so we put the eggs into the incubator. After 21 prolong days a chick!! after experimenting several times we were able to hatch quail, chickens, bantams, and were working on hatching peacocks and guineas. when they hatch I will post a picture off them

                       chow for now
