My dogs name is disney. She is sooo sweet !! She freaks out if she hears the doorbell ring. she's even happier if a "new" person come in! she is 11 now but she still chases hawks( or an airplane). Whenever I say her name she gives me the puppy look. When she begs its hard to resist. She is super obedient for mom or dad. She'll always wait for them. Dad taught her to sit and lie down. I taught her to shake. I think she's the cutest dog in the world!!

There's fake gods in this story. The leader of the gods is named Zeus, also known as Jupiter. Zeus wanted to get rid of some people on Earth. He decided he would cause a war on Earth. So he made a golden apple and wrote on top of it, "for the most beautiful." He called Eris, the goddess of strife. "Here" he said "take this apple to the wedding and drop it in front of my wife." Eris likes to cause trouble, so she did what he told her and went to the wedding. When she saw Hera talking with a couple of other goddesses, she dropped the apple in front of Hera. Hera was the wife of Zeus. Hera picked the apple up and said "This must be mine. I'm the most beautiful!" Aphrodite said "No, this must be for me." Athena said "No! This must be mine!" The whole wedding was wondering who the apple was for, and who was the most beautiful? Hera said "I know, we should ask my husband. Anyway, he's the chief." They went to Zeus, but Zeus said "Why should I judge my wife? Go to Earth and ask somebody who's the most beautiful goddess."
They went to ask Paris, the prince of Troy. "Let's see..." said Paris, wondering if he chose the wrong goddess if he would be striked dead.
"Pick me" whispered Hera, "and I'll make you the king of the whole world of men."
"No, no" said Athena "pick me, and I'll give you victory in every battle you fight."
"Wait" said Aphrodite "pick me, Paris, and I'll give you the most beautiful woman on Earth."
"That's what I want" said Paris, so he gave the apple to Aphrodite.
So Aphrodite did give him the most beautiful woman on Earth. But the woman that Aphrodite gave to Paris was already married, and that started a war in Troy. There was years of fighting, all because of Zeus and that golden apple.
*This story is not real, but it is pretty cool. There isn't any REAL gods other than the one true God we worship, but the Greeks believed in a whole family of gods that weren't real. These are pretty cool! If you want to learn any more stories or have questions about it, you can read "The Story of the World, History for the Classic Child, Volume 1: The Ancient Times." The author of this book is Susan Wise Bauer.

My brothers are crazy! They always get into a mess. Today Treston got into a box of nails and poured them on the ground! Today Justus poured a whole bottle of pink paint out! Jax is big, he doesn't make messes like Justus and Treston, but he likes to mess with me! (Jax said that he LOVES to mess with me!)
Justus sometimes calls me Pickle!
Treston gets into the toothpaste and pours it everywhere!
Justus, Treston, and Jax sometimes take all the pans out and play with them.
One time they were making a lot of noise with the pots. It's hard being a big sister in this house.
Justus is banging a spoon right now.
Jax sometimes wears nothing but underwear.
Treston got into the clementines.
My brothers are just a mess. Big mess. Really, really big mess.
But I love them. Even though it's hard to be a big sister.

If I was a movie director, I would make Christian stories.
My first story would be called "God's Warrior." It's about this girl named Susan. She is in a battle between God and the Devil. She gets her way to the devil, she fights the devil, she's about to lose, and then Jesus comes, and he helps her and then win!!! The lesson of the story is you can be God's Warrior.
And then my second story would be called "God's Girl." It's about this girl that lives in Asia and she's an orphan. She teaches everyone about God, even though she could get killed for it. (This is called persecuted.) When people decided to persecute her, before they found her, God told her to go somewhere. The Holy Spirit got her deeper and deeper through the jungle...she walked for days. And when she was too tired to go on, God gave her a donkey, and food. And when she got to the place, she made friends with the animals, made a shelter, and it was right by a river. So she had plenty of fruit, plants, and water. She was very safe there. She lives there for months, and then one day a city was built right next to her. But the city didn't know where her lair was. So she teached about God in that city. This story's lesson is obey God for He will take care of you.
My third story is called "The Horse Who Knew God." It's about this orange horse that was called Spirit. Spirit had to go far away to face this other horse that loved the Devil because God told him to. Once he got to the place, he fought the horse that loved the Devil and he wan! And God rewarded him by letting him take over the land where the Devil's horse lived. It was a beautiful land and it had plenty of food. Spirit's land where he lived first barely had enough food and water. This story's lesson is saying God will help you win a battle against the Devil.
My fourth story will be about a sea monster and a girl. It's about this sea monster who almost breaked this girl's house. The people who lived in that house thought he was an enemy. God told the girl that even though he was an enemy to her that she should be kind to him. So she was. And when she did that, she started to love him, and so did he, so one day they were the best of friends. This story's lesson is love your enemies.
My fifth story is about this leopard who has to fight a huge tiger for God. The tiger loved the Devil more than anything and God told the leopard to try to fight him. The leopard did and he wan! His family and cheetahs really liked him now. And the jungle lived happily ever after. This story's lesson is no matter how scary or how big the nations, God is with you.
