well, being 4 was pretty great cuz i gots to do lots of cool things. liiiiike, i got a new baby brother. i got to take gymnastics and swimming and speech classes. i got to go to Great Wolf and Portland. i got to spend lots of time with my great grandma nana who moved here from santamento. i got to go to the circus and high school musical on ice! i got a basketball hoop and a baseball mit and got to go to a lot of baseball games. i started trying new foods and found out i like rice and bulgar.

i’ll miss being four because i’m not going to get to go to beth’s preschool and i won’t get to have a big milk at bedtime. and i’m a little bit worried about not having that milk, but mom and dad say it will help me keep my bed dry.

tomorrow i turn 5. it’s going to be pretty awesome. i get to open a present right when i get up, but then have to wait for the rest until dad gets home from work. then on sunday i’m going to have a birthday party. a speed racer birthday party! i can’t wait!

yesterday i went to IslandWood for the mochi festival and got to make real mochi with sweet beans. i even liked it… pretty much. then we went for a long hike at IslandWood.
