Swimming and strokes :)

I am officially on a swim team, AKA the Tulsa City Dolphins

It is a really good team. I  go twice a week to practice
I am really good at breast stroke. My first meet, I won my heat in breast stroke. This is what it looks like.

There is also a stroke called Backstroke and, you guessed it, you lay on your back,  put your arms behind you and kick your feet.

There is ANOTHER stroke called freestyle. It is just like backstroke, but on your stomach.

Last, but certainly not least, and definitely the hardest, BUTTERFLY!

Angel of the Battelfield.......... Clara Barton by Evelyn

This is Clara Barton. She was a  nurse for the Civil War.
This is her story.
In 1821on Christmas Day Clarissa Harlowe Barton was born in North Oxford, Massachusetts they nicknamed her Clara.
Clara was scared of spiders,thunderstorms,and snakes.
Clara was eleven years old when her brother David Barton
fell of a barn roof.

For 2 years Clara nursed him
back to health.  After nursing him back to health she missed nursing him back to health,
but also happy that he was better

Clara soon started teaching. She was very good at it
At 18 she went to collage ,while she was in collage  she received a letter from
her brother Stephen telling her that their mother
had died:[
Clara hadn't gotten the letter fast enough to be able to go to the funeral :[

After that she went back to teaching,
but the school owners started thinking "That Barton thinks that she's as good as a man! and "Disgraceful !
A woman should not be allowed to run a school."

Soon after that they hired J.Kirby Burnham.
Clara taught for a few more months.
Clara then started helping with the  Union army, bringing them food on the battlefield.
Clara asked if she could help the soldiers on the battle field and Colonel Rucker said "Yes"
Clara worked really hard helping wounded soldiers.

Fun Fact: Clara was almost shot while the man she was nursing died
Clara then helped families find relatives.

Soon Clara opened The American Red Cross to help people that are in need.

So she started working at the Red Cross.
She soon got a message saying that her sister Sally Barton was ill

Clara was sad because of Sally's death but still working at the Red Cross.
A little while later on April 12, 1912, Clarissa Harlowe Barton died:[
The Red Cross is still around today.

I think Clara Barton is pretty cool, Huh?

Thanks for listening:]

Asoka the Great........... By Evelyn!


This is Asoka

He was an conqueror, a mean conqueror I say.
His family was a dynasty in India.
When he was younger
everyone called him Asoka the Fierce
because he would kill anyone and anything !!!!!!!!!!!! When he was 22 his father died:[
That meant that Asoka would take the throne. Asoka wanted more and more power.
But one day after a long time of war Asoka had won the Battle of Kalinga.
Asoka went on the battlefield, there was blood every where.
Asoka felt really bad about it


After the battle Asoka was nice.
He built stupas for prayer and edicts .

When Asoka built the stupas and edicts he believed in Buddhism.
He believed that everyone should be treated fairly.  :] !!!!!
The rest of his life he was nice :]
Asoka is pretty cool, huh?

Thanks for listening:)

Wrapping Things Up....

Just a quick post to update you all on the status of the baby and Evie. I went to the doc on Wednesday and things seem to be going very well. Right now, according to the ultra sound, the baby is growing right on track and weighs about 6 pounds. If I carry full term we should be looking at another 8-9 pound baby. Healthy and happy hopefully. The only surprising news is that because the baby is sitting so low and because I am already dilated, we might deliver early...this could be the Christmas baby :)
Evelyn is as wonderful as we could have ever imagined and we are so excited about the holidays. She is saying "Santa" and loves riding around at night shouting out the colors of all the Christmas lights and looking at the decorations.
Shopping is finished, wrapping will be by this weekend, and we are ready for this exciting time of year. We hope to be able to share it with all that we love and cherish and wish each of you a calm and happy next few weeks!
