We got set an extra special task today. We have to write a story about one of our grandparents or great grandparents, or great great great grandparents, someone older than our parents but in our family, and draw a picture, and we get to show it to Mr Tong’s dad when he comes. I am so excited. I will be working very hard on mine.

I went and spent the day with Grandma instead of having daddy daughter time. It’s been awhile since I have played at Grandma’s house. I told her all about my monkey and Joshua. She said I’ll have to bring Joshua to play next time. Cool!

We got to paint today. We’re doing stuff about our homes. We got to paint a picture of our homes and write about our homes today. It was cool. And then at the end of the day our teacher read us a story about his home when he was our age that he had written, and even showed us some pictures. It was so cool. Mr Tong comes from Earth from a place called China. That’s so incredible. He’s lived here for 20 years. 20 years is like forever! He must be so old. I bet he’s been alive longer than anybody else I have ever met. Joshua also had a really interesting picture and stories. He got to write about his old planet because he has just moved here. He’s the only Hippopotati at school so his stuff was so different from everyone elses. It was awesome!

First day at New Earth Alpha School. BEST DAY EVER! Also scariest day ever! But still the BEST DAY EVER!!!! I made a new friend. He is so awesome. He’s a Hippoptati. He is so smart. He wears glasses and a vest. He reads books as thick as my dad reads. We nearly got into trouble today but Joshua saved us because he is so smart! We were chasing a bird to find out what it had to say and I nearly went “out of bounds”. “Out of bounds” is somewhere you aren’t allowed to go. But Joshua saw the sign and stopped me. A teacher came and yelled at us but Joshua let her know that we hadn’t gone “out of bounds” and so it was all okay. I’d like to know what bounds are but I don’t want to tell Mum and Dad that I was nearly “out of bounds”. I told Mum and Dad about Joshua. He’s apparently new to Giovanus. His family have moved just around the corner from us. Mum says we can have them over for dinner some time. How awesome is that. I don’t think Tarni likes Elcob very much but she is being nice to him. We all ended up in the same class along with Joshua so that’s cool. Elcob sits next to Joshua so Tarni doesn’t have to deal with him too much. She’ll get used to him. Can’t wait for tomorrow.
