Garage Sale And Spring Social

 2 days ago was our towns big garage sale at the Legion. My mom got a bunch of stuff there, because it was so cheap. We thought it started at 8:00 because it's sign said so, but it actually started at 8:30 just like the newspaper said. So we woke up at 7:00 when we could have woke up at 7:30. We are not much of morning people.
 Our school board has spring socials ever year. So we went to one in Olds yesterday. It was okay. There was really good food there. The drive down there was horrible! It rained really hard almost the whole way. But when we were coming back home there was a big bright rainbow. I wish I had my camera to take a picture of it.

Today me, my mom and my brothers planted some of our seeds. My mom has been wanting to start planting forever, so she finally did it today. It is a good day for it to because it is so cold and gray outside. I planted the broccoli and cauliflower.

There is us planting

And there is us planting again. But there you can see my raccoon hat just like Fess Parker's from the show Daniel Boone or Davy Crockett

So we had a fire and roasted hot dogs.

Jacob The Hairdresser

 My brother Jacob was put into time out and when he came out of time out his hair was a little different. He got bored so he cut his hair. But he said that he doesn't want to be a hairdresser.

 Here is the side of his head

Here is the hair he cut off


And the top of his head

 My dad will have to shave him bald tomorrow.

Babysitting, Blizzard and Baking

 Today is a blizzard as you see in the picture above. So me and my brother Jacob that I was babysitting made peanut butter cookies. It is a really easy recipe with only 3 ingredients. For people that are allergic to gluten this is a good recipe for them.
 1 cup    peanut butter
 1 cup    sugar (we used 3/4 cup of sugar)
 1           egg

 Mix peanut butter and sugar first. Then mix egg. Put it in the oven for 11 minutes at 350f.  Take them out and enjoy. (There is the picture of the cookies)

Concert At The Old Folks Home

 Me, my mom and my brother Ben just came back from a volunteer appreciation concert and desert night at the old folks home. They served ice cream and a Filipinpo choir performed. I enjoyed it.
 We volunteer by serving refreshments when they need help. (That's me watching a solo singer in the picture.)

 My name is Rebekah. As you see this is my very first post. My mom has a blog, and it looks like fun so I wanted to try it.
 Here's a little about me.
 I LOVE to read books. Some of my favourite books are the Bible and Janette Oke books. My favourite story from the Bible is Ester. And my favourite books from Janette Oke are Love Comes Softly series, When Calls The Heart series and They Called Her Misses Doc.
 My favourite singers are Michael Buble and Jamie Grace. My favourite song from Michael Buble is Haven't Met You Yet. And my favourite song from Jamie Grace is 1945. I got my name for my blog from one of Jamie Grace's songs. Its called God Girl. (I added the country part)
 The donkey that I am training right now is Little Joe. I will post a video of me and Little Joe in a post soon. (We got his name from Little Joe Cartwright on Bonanza) He can jump, ride, trot, walk and is some what halter broke. Our two other donkeys are Jenny and Molly. Jenny is my favourite because she is sweet. Molly and Jenny are going to have babies this year.
 My mom homeschools me and my brothers. The subjects that we are doing right now are math, bible, science and LA. For history we are doing a Daniel Boone unit study. We get to learn Canadian and American histoy, how they lived back then, geography and of course about Daniel Boone.
 That is a little about me and you will probably learn more about me in other posts.
