Starting the Garden #Garden

Yesterday my dad and I went to the lake club to go to a garden club meeting.  

When we got there, there were only a few people and they said that the meeting was at 12:00. We came back at 12:00 and there were about 40 people inside the building.  We met with the garden club president and talked about getting a garden plot. They said they might have an empty one. But we had to get our checkbook so we drove back to the house and got the checkbook. When we got back down they said that we could have one. 

Here are two photos of before and after that in our plot:

(The top picture is of before and the bottom is of after)

Flowers and Basil

Two weeks ago my Mom bought some basil and flower seeds and potting soil and so I scraped out the old soil and replaced it with the new soil. That took a while because I didn't have a shovel or a spade so I had to get a dolly and push the pot on it. So after that I took some of the basil and planted it and I also took some of the flower seeds so here is picture of it growing right now:

(BTW if you look close enough you will see the basil in the background)




The S & A Detective Agency (part four)

                        <<<<The S & A Detective Agency>>>>


One morning as I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock, I noticed something white laying on my desk. I stood up to get a better look at it. As soon as I got up I noticed that it was some snow that came through my open window. So I fell back on my bed. A few minutes later my mom came in and said that Simon was at the door. I told my mom to tell Simon that I would be down there in a minute. After my mom left I quickly got dressed in my winter clothes and went downstairs. When Simon sow me he said

"Hi Alminy, did you see the snow outside?" 

I told him about the snow on my desk as we went upstairs to my room. When Simon saw the pile of snow on my desk, he said we could just push the snow back out the window, so we started to push the snow out the window.

"Wait! what's that?" Simon noticed something in the snow.

 I followed Simon's gaze at a small piece of paper sticking out of the snow. 

"Be careful. We have to pull it out slowly."

 We gently pulled the piece of paper out of the pile of snow. We tried to read what it said, but we could only make out the word 'Water.'

Then we put it on my desk to let it dry. After that me and Simon went outside still puzzled. Then we heard a police siren ringing across town we were lost in thought about the piece of paper that we didn't pay attention to the siren or anything, until a car nearly hit us! Suddenly a strong hand grabbed us out of the road and on to the sidewalk. 

"are you two okay?"

"yeah we're okay," we both said at the same time.

The man was big and strong he looked like he could win boxing match. 

"why were you two boys in the middle of the street!?! If I wasn't here you might have been run over!"

 We said we were thinking and didn't pay attention to the road. After that, the man left and me and Simon decided we should go to Roger's frosty's (Roger's Frosty's a ice cream shop) anyway when we got there unfortunately it had a closed sign on it's door. But as we were about to leave Simon suddenly stopped and said 

"listen do you hear that?"

 We both stopped. I vaguely heard a ruffling inside the shop and then we heard a crash! After that we heard some voices and then it was silent. But as me and Simon went to investigate the matter we saw a head pop up from Inside, quickly we both ducked behind a bush. 

"Do you think he saw us?"

 Said Simon "No I don't think so."

 I said as I peered over the bush, The only thing I saw was a ice cream machine so I said 

"Okay, it's clear. Let's go to Mr. Riley's house and tell him what we saw."

We left to Mr. Riley's house, who is the owner of Riley's Frosty's. When we got there, we rang the bell, and then Jack the butler answered the door and said

"Yes?..ah! it's you Alminy and Simon! Come on in!" 

"What brings you to boys here?" Said Jack as we walked inside 

"we came to talk about Mr. Riley's ice cream shop"

 Simon said as we turned a corner and was in the hallway "are you two going to give Mr. Riley some more advice about what to put in his shop that other kids will like?"

 "No not this time"

 "hello Simon Hello Alminy what brings you two here?" Said Mr. Riley as we sat down. 

"We came to talk to you about your ice cream shop"

"Oh? What about my shop?" 

"Was there anybody working there earlier?" 

"Hmm.. I don't remember hiring anybody to clean up, but I will have to check my agenda, why?"

 "Well we saw someone's head from inside your shop" "ah!  Did you hear some crashes?" "Yes why? Do you know who was there?"

"Haha yes I do it must be Jimmy and Jeff they were always coming here to ask if they can help clean up for some money so I said just this once they could clean up for five bucks each"

"that explains everything"

"come on let's go get some Wad-Fam-Choc-Sod at my ice cream shop"

(A Wad-Fam-Choc-Sod stands for a "World Famous Chocolate Soda") we both followed Mr. Riley out of his house and into his limo on the way there Mr. Riley showed us a old pitcher he said "look at this it is a pitcher that I found in Israel a long time ago"

(Mr. Riley was a archeologist and has his own museum) "I will put it in my museum tomorrow" 

suddenly we slowed down to a stop then Jack said "sorry there's a police road block blocking the road so we have to go around."

as were about to turn around we heard a huge bang then suddenly we could here voices and some shouts outside. Then Jack started to drive the car around and we headed down the road to the ice cream shop. When we got there he unlocked the door and we went inside "h-h-who's there?"

 "It's just us Jimmy" 

"oh it's Mr. Riley I thought you were a burglar!"

Biology Lesson

Last night my Dad read a biology book called "Introduction to Biology" by John Holzmann. `While my Dad was reading I took some notes, here is a picture of them.
 When you look at the picture you can see that there are arrows pointing to the different keywords like it starts at the keyword Wondering then from that phase it goes into Theory and Hypothesize and then comes from Hypothesize and Theory into Experiments and from Experiments goes into Observing, Testing, and Hypothesize and from Observing into Testing etc.
