Today, I am going to try dorodango. These are basically Japanese mud balls. You have to get mud with clay in it, and pack it into a ball. Then you have to let it dry while inside of a plastic bag. Every once in a while, you take it out and sprinkle some dry dirt on the top, pat it in, then wipe off the excess gently. Eventually, after repeating this process A LOT, you take a soft cloth (preferably satin) and polish it, and it will become glossy and smooth. They are beautiful! I want to go someday and find different colors of dirt and make different colored dorodango.

Hi! Wow, I haven't posted in a while! Sorry about that! Anyway, I went hunting with my dad and cousin and brother today. We got stuck in this meadow thing, but my dad solved the problem by driving over a bunch of flat rocks. Then, my cousin shot his gun, and the shot was so powerful that the gun kind of went backwards and hit him, leaving this huge cut in his forehead! My dad drove him to the hospital, and he got 15 stitches! My dad felt so bad! Anyway, NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY!!! YAY!!!!

Okay. Everyone knows about Tinker-bell, right? If there wasn't a certain family, we wouldn't have Tinker-Bell! Or Peter Pan! Or any of the characters! The book wouldn't exist! This family's mom had a lung disease, and all she wanted was to be all fun and well, pretty much sparkly! But she couldn't, because of her disease. So a friend of the family added Tinker-Bell to the story. You can watch Finding Never Land to find out more details. Finding Never Land is a true story.
