Second Swim Meet

Last Friday we had our swim meet at Stonecreek swimming pool.  I participated in the 25 yards free (freestyle), back (backstroke) and fly (butterfly).

I like swim meet.  Next time, I am going to do all the 4 styles.  (That's just what my mom thought, but not me.  If it is me, I would prefer to stay home and relax and not do anything at all. Honestly, I am that lazy.)

Lunch at Tasty Garden

Today, we went to Tasty Garden to eat lunch.  I ordered Ice Lemon Tea and Pork Chop with Black Pepper Sauce.  The entrĂ©e comes with two sides and I ordered French fries and corn.   

The ice lemon tea is very refreshing and I give it a 4 stars.  They refilled it for free every time when I almost finish it. 

I like this dish a lot because it is very tasty and I love to eat meat and the corn.  The sauce is so good!  Although it is black pepper sauce but no it isn't spicy at all.

Yummy pork chop, I like and I give it 4.5 stars.

The above is my mom's dish and I give it only 1 star because I do not like rice noodle in thick gravy sauce.

Sally's 8th Birthday Party

I was invited to Sally's birthday party at Aliso Viejo Ice Palace.  It was an ice skating party.  I was anxious because I don't know what to expect and I haven't ice skated before.  My parents went with me.

Initially, I didn't want to ice skate but Sally's mom persuaded me to try it out.  So I did.  It was my dad's first time doing ice skating too.  But since he is older and he already knew how to roller blade, he did much better than I.

I was going very slowly and holding to the side all the time.

My dad and I.

Still on my first loop around the ice rink.

There was an instructor for the party.  She taught me to march on the ice.

Some of the guests at the party.

I liked the guacamole dip with chips.  I ate a lot.

They served cheese pizza from Z Pizza.

First Time Roller Blade

To prepare for Sally's Ice Skating party tomorrow, my mom taught me how to roller blade.  She said it is very important to learn to balance on the roller blade or on the ice skate.  So in the evening, she took out her roller blade and had me tried it out.

I was going around my driveway.  It was difficult to balance or move.  Mom told me always to bend forward and don't lean backward.  If fall, fall forward and stop with my palms.

There was a few times that I almost fall backwards but my dad or my mom was there to caught me.  It felt like I stepped and slipped on a banana skin.  Very slippery when I am on the roller blades.

Pizza Delivery to School

I had a special pizza delivery today for lunch.  My mom brought me her special home made chicken masala spinach pizza. 

She used store bought pizza crust.  She brush a thin layer of olive oil on the crust before spreading the sauce on it.  Next, she add some mozzarella cheese and the chicken.  And to top off, some organic baby spinach.

This is the pizza after it has been baked for about 10 minutes.

This is how the lunch room looks like before the kids come out for lunch.

My friend, Brandon A and I, were having lunch together.  I was eating my mom's special pizza.

This is Sally.  Mom also made the pizza for her but she said she prefers cheese pizza so she picked out the chicken and the spinach.  Hope she likes my mom's home made pizza.

First Day Volunteer

My mom volunteered in my classroom this morning.  So now, you all have a chance to see how my classroom looks like because my mom took a picture of it.  Here it is.

Stretch your eyes and see if you can find me in the picture above.  I am sitting at the back row between Arna and Jaiden.

And this is the volunteer work area.

Friday Flag Deck

Today is our first flag deck.  And also our first one with our new principal, Mr. Potwora. 

This is my teacher, Ms. Viscardi.

We were walking to the line up area for flag deck. Our line is now underneath the basket ball court.

At flag deck today, Ms. Tran (new 6th grade teacher) nominated Miss Debbie for the Ice Bucket Challenge and she did it in front of all of us. It was fun to actually see it. I've watched many Ice Bucket Challenge on YouTube but yet to see one live with my own eyes yet. This is first for me.

We ended our flag deck with the Pledge of Allegiance.

Walk to School

Today marked my second day of school.  We walked this morning and we met up with Matthew, my neighbor and also my classmate.  So we both walked together to school.

That's smiling boy behind me is Brandon A, the other Brandon in my class.
