Tubing

Racheal and I went tubing a few Sundays ago, it was very fun. Uncle Dave took us. Mom and Dad went next unfortunately they did not fly off the tube and then Adrian went and he flew off but he got back on.

The next day I went back to camp, at camp my cabin leader’s name was Megan too. We went tubing four times and the last time Megan flew off the tube I am glad I was in the middle otherwise I would have flown off too

Bubble Ball

We played Bubble Ball. The goal is to not to be knocked down, and to knock the other player down. Mark and Adrian could beat me, but I beat Katie once. They are bigger, heavier and have more mass than I do. It was fun.

Klaus enjoyed watching me beat his mom, he thought it was hilarious.

Chocolate Sausage

Today is World Chocolate Day! We made some chocolate sausage. Momma let me experiment with how I made mine.

Mix together:

  • 2/3 c crushed Oreos
  • 3/4 c pretzel pieces
  • 1/2 c pecans or walnuts

Melt by your favorite method:

  • 1 cup dark chocolate
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 3 Tbl butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • Mix all ingredients together.
  • With wax paper, form into sausage shape.
  • Refrigerate till firm.
  • Dust in powdered sugar if you want.
  • Cut into slices.

Next time I want to replace the milk with peanut butter (probably 1/3 c?) to see how that works 🙂

Optional: Replace any of the crunches with other favorite crunchies, or use your favorite flavored chocolate.

Momma posted her recipe here.

Dear Red Riding Hood;

I am glad you enjoy our magazine. Here are some tips to keep wolves out of the house:

  1. Do not socialize with wolves, stay away from them!
  2. If a wolf gets in the house, bang pots and pans and make a lot of noise. I would recommend playing country music full blast.
  3. Call your local hunter or 911.
  4. Get one of those fancy video doorbells.
  5. As all children should know, if you do not know who it is, do not open the door!

Yours truly,

Jacob W. Grimm
