You know we like you to read our blog, but we also want to encourage you to exercise and play outside!  But what if you don't know what to do?  What if you are....BORED?  (dun dun dun)
I have a suggestion for you.  There are lots of fun activities to do EVERY season...even winter!! 
Some activities for every season are listed below:
Skiing.  Maddison and I both LOVE to ski!
Making snow angels.  It's fun, it's vigorating, and it shows off your creativity!!
Making a snowman.  This also shows off creativity and it makes you stronger!!!

Jump roping!  Some people think it's just for little girls, but it is fun and GOOD EXERCISE!!!
Roller blading.  There are lots of places to go roller blading, and you can improve your speed in everything you're good at!
Bike Riding!  It is awesome, and you can be odd while doing it.

Swimming...builds muscles, is FUN, and refreshes you on a hot day.
Squirt gun fighting!  Like swimming, refreshes you on a hot day, and you exercise your strategic thinking. 

ALMOST anything in spring, as long as it's warm.
Walking a dog.  Even if you don't happen to own one, you can always go to your local humane society and help them out!
LEAF CATCHING!!!!!  Okay, even I admit it sounds weird.  But seriously!  You can run fast and it improves focus!  If you can focus on a leaf, you can focus on anything!  Good exercise and is very fun!  In fact, I was just leaf-catching myself!  Me and my friends caught FORTY-ONE leaves!  We are odd, all right!  YOU CAN BE, TOO!!!

You know, it's probably Maddison that will probably be doing most of the reviewing stuff, but I thought I'd review this TOTALLY AWESOME website called!!  Hey, why are you laughing!  I'm trying to be SERIOUS HERE!!  :) 

Well, anyway, this website I have no part in making is very cool, it has a game called Smashing!  That sounds kind of like ours....hmm.  I'll have to think about that.  Anyway, it has lots of other games, too, but I'm not going to go into detail about those NOW.  You can look at them for yourself. Hey, why is my text still purple?!

Whatever.  That's better. That rhymes!  I'm a poet! Yay! 

So, I've said a little bit about this website, and I hope you'll enjoy it. :)


P.S. I hope you don't think I'm too weird about this. :) LOL!


Hey guys!  It's Ashley!  I'm just telling you that I got an email address that I can use to send emails to you guys!  It's ashleyisodd@gmail.comSend us mail!  I'll try to reply as soon as possible--but I might not get to it right away.  I've got other stuff to do, too.  Bye, guys!!  I'm looking forward to getting some emails!!



Ok.This is Maddison here. I want to tell you about the new thing that we will be doing on this site. It is called : Book and website reviews! We will review websites and  books and tell you what we think from a highschool/middle school opinion. Well Lets get started!  

  Our first review is one of the website. This website enables users to create their own virtual neopet for free. You can choose a name, color, and type of make believe pet to own. After that, you can go around Neopia(or the land that neopets live in) and collect items, create homes, and more.

Overall, this is a pretty cool site-but  i  would only recommend it for ages 6-11 at most. There is one thing, however, that would be awesome for kids our age. There is this thing called "Neopian Times" where users can submit stories. This is cool! Anyways, i have submitted a story recently, and am waiting for a response. Well  thats all for today!!!!Bye Maddison
