Trees & Writing

As you have probably already seen from my pictures, there really aren't any trees (only in Mrs. Michelle's garden, and there are fig groves) here in Egypt. Well, Samuel dug some holes so we could plant some fruit trees. Mom got some pictures, but sadly our internet is too slow to upload anything. So you'll have to be content with me saying that the holes really aren't worth seeing. :P


I've also been doing my writing for school, and I have to get 600 words for a story thing about arguing. Here is an example of my writing (I highlighted the mistakes):



Martha pouted again but she went in to the kitchen and went up to Ma ma.  “Ma ma? Jenna is bein’ mean she is not being nice. She is ignoring me. Pwease can you read to me?”

Ma ma smiled sweetly and explained, “Jenna is working on her school. That is probably why she could not read to you. I am very sorry but I can not read to you either. I am working in the kitchen. Martha, you have school to do all so. Like math, and spelling, and logic, and grammar, and writing, and reading, and history, and Bible, and there are so many thing that I myself can not name them all.  Do you under stand? Is this clear to you sweet sugar baby dolly?”

Martha threw up her hands, “No it is not clear. I do not know what you are talking a bout. Will you please say it again? “  

Ma ma sighed,  “Jenna is working on her school. That is probably why she could not read to you. I am very sorry but I can not read to you either. I am working in the kitchen. Martha you have school to do all so. Like math, and spelling, and logic, and grammar, and writing, and reading, and history, and Bible, and there are so many thing that I myself can not name them all.  Do you under stand? Is this clear to you sweet sugar baby dolly?”

*cough* Yeah. I doubt Mom will let that pass, what about you?

Love in Christ,

  3. Hi Kendra. I like your blog and want to say...keep on writing. I'm pretty new to this blog thing (I have my own that is designed to encourage writing and journaling - www.littledarlingspress.blogspot.com- and I hope you visit it). I saw on another entry that you lack trees in Egypt. Where I come from it is all trees (Minnesota). I wonder what it would be like to see for miles? Anyway, keep up the good blogging and God bless you and your family.
