1989 "Book-It"

Dear diary,

Today I finished my first book for book-it*. It’s called Clues in the Woods. It has more then 100 pages. I will start my next book tomorrow.

*Book-It was a promotion to help children read by providing a free pizza-hut kids size pizza after reading a certain amount of books. I even had a pin to could put on my shirt and a start for each book you read. I THINK it was five stars/books=free pizza.

1989 "play room"

Dear Diary,
Not to long ago my mother and I painted my play room pink. It looks pretty and we rearranged the room.

Dear diary, 1989
Today I found out what I got on my spelling test. I am in the fourth grade. The highest score is 108 and I made a 107. The highest score I’ve had in my life. I think I’m doing good at school.

Dear Diary,

We are going to see Uncle Duckface*, we are going at 6:00 in the morning. Square Bear is coming too. It will be the first time she has seen him. We are in the car playing tic-tac-toe. We are having some trouble. We could not find the right road, but we are alright now. We are here and he is glad to see us. I made something for him and I gave it to him. He liked it. We have to go now but we will come back soon. We are coming into Calabash now and Square Bear is asleep. I’ll tell you a secret, she snores and she’s just 9 years old.

*Uncle Duckface was my Grandfather’s Older Brother. At this time he lived in a nursing home.
