My Favorite Year - 2011

My Favorite Year: 2011!

Today is New Year’s Eve, and I am really sad that 2011 is over. This was my favorite year, 2011. We did all sorts of fun things. I learned about new games, learned new sites, and went to many places.

I got a YouTube account. I won four trophies: Soccer, Baseball, Chess, and Pinewood Derby for Cub scouts. I got my biggest Lego set, Lego Mindstorms, my most powerful Pokémon – Zoroak.

Here are all the places I went: Kalahari (Ohio) for a homeschooling conference, Naples, Florida, Universal Studios, many visits to Nana’s and Southampton, we visited Cohasset, where we used to live. I went to Wildwood, NJ, York, Maine (for my cousin’s wedding).

I lost my first tooth. I got glasses.

I started to learn Spanish, I got much better at Chess this year.

I went to three camps this year: Chess, Cub Scouts and Summer Center. I made lots of new friends, through camps, cub scouts and homeschooling groups.

My new neighbors finally moved in. But I didn’t meet them yet.

I read all the 39 Clues Books, I had a Pokémon Birthday party. I still love Lego’s, playing Chess on the computer. I got 10,000 hits on my blog!

I am sad that 2011 is over, but we are going to a friend's house to celebrate tonight. And tomorrow we will list all the great things we are going to do in 2012.

Christmas 2011

Christmas was 6 days ago.

I got Mighty Beanz 6 Pack, LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0, Wheel of Fortune, Monopoly Deal, a cap, a rock tumbler,
Set, LEGO minifigures, Rory's Story Cubes, books, and there are so many I can't remember the rest.

My favorite was LEGO Mindstorms NXT 2.0 because you can build and program a robot.

I built a ShooterBot that shoots balls!

You can make sounds and make it sense things to!

It can move!

It can feel!

It can sense colors and light!

It can see!

This is is like

You learn and play chess.

But there are fewer things. They do not have Chess Mentor and the daily puzzle.

My 30 minute rating is 694.

My name is OldKid.

My club is Challenger Chess Club.

Now you can join and play me if you dare!

New 39 Clues Book and a Fun Game

This is the new 39 Clues - A King's Ransom

I got the book from the library.

It was very exciting.

I already finished it!

There are about 14 books in this mystery series and I read them all!

I also got this great game called 10 Days In Europe.

You have to start with a country and end with a country.

Say you start with Belgium. You can walk to any border country of Belgium.

Say you start with Belgium again. And you have a yellow plane. You can fly to any country with the same color.

Say you have England. And you have the Atlantic ocean. You can take a boat to a country touching the Atlantic ocean.

If you play this game you will definitively learn European geography!
