This year started out rough for me. I started getting sick after New Year's Day. I went back to school this Monday and it was a long and boring day. I got in trouble and Mr. Howler sent me back into the hall. I got in trouble when Mama Monkey found out.
Today, Mr. Howler brought in his orange tree. I'm not sure what kind of oranges they were, but they were small. Of course, he had to put the tree in the back of the class near me. I was still a little hungry after eating lunch and the oranges smelled so good, I decided to try one.
I stealthily picked what I thought was a ripe one that hung from a branch closest to me. It came off with ease. I was surprised because it pulled out the top part of the skin so it was easier to peel. It smelled really good too, even though it was a small orange. I popped it in my mouth...and then ran straight to the bathroom.
I could hear the other kids laughing as I ran out of the door and spit the orange into the trash. It was more sour than a lemon, so sour that it felt like it burned. I rinsed my mouth out with lots of water. Mr. Howler was waiting for me when I came outside. He didn't look mad and he told me that I should ask if I wanted one. I apologized and said I would. He told me I could have an orange when it was ripe. That's the last time I trust an indoor orange tree!
We just got good news today. Our author, Jo Fontana, is now a member of Colorado Authors' League! We're very thankful for the honor. We would also like to thank Crystal Publishing, LLC for believing in the Turtle Monkey series and her silliness. And last but not least, we are thankful for our supporters! Have a very Happy 2018!
It's cold and snowy today. I grumbled about having to go to school today, but I forgot that we have a short school day. Mama Monkey just picked me up from school and now I'm going to go outside and build a snowman. Stay warm and have a happy holiday season!
I can't wait until holiday break from school. I am excited to see what Monkey Claus brings me. I'm not sure if Uncle Red and Aunt Tawny will be out this year, but I think Grandma and Grandpa will be out to celebrate along with Aunt Fuchsia and Uncle Titian. How many days of school do you have left until the break?
Thanksgiving will be here in two days. I can't wait to eat all the food that Mama Monkey and Aunt Fuchsia make. I'm thankful for the week off from school. I'm thankful for my friends. I'm thankful for Mama Monkey and my family. I'm thankful for Fuzztastic and my pets. And last but not least, I'm thankful that I don't have to live with Little Ape! What are you thankful for?
One of our great teachers, Mr. Armando Rodriguez passed away today. We are very sad and our love and thoughts go out to his family.
