A couple of days ago, I wanted to build a fire. You see, we have this great fireplace in our house. But we never use it, because why would you need a fire in Florida? I thought it would be fun, since I am a Cub Scout and know how to build fires. We gathered lots of sticks and small logs from our front and backyards. At one time, we used a part of our old fence! Then my grandparents took me and my sisters to see The Muppets Movie.
It is about these brothers, a muppet named Walter and a man named Gary, go with Gary’s girlfriend Mary to L.A., where they go to see the Muppet Studios. Walter finds out that an evil guy named Tex Richman is planing to tear down Muppet Studios, where they can drill for oil. Gary,Mary and Walter go to Kermit and tell him this. The only way they can save Muppet Studios is raising 10,000,000 dollars. This means that they have to go and get the gang back to make one last show. At one point they kidnap Jack Black! See the movie to find out if they raise ten million dollars!
Today at MJGDS was the Intergenerational Friends day. This is when your relatives or friends come to school and you tell them about what happens at MJGDS. My class showed our blogs, and we had to interview our guest.
I interviewed my teacher Morah (teacher in hebrew) Mazal. Morah Mazal had no pets, but as a kid she helped take care of all the stray animals. Where she lived, the animals were allowed to run around. Her favorite book was The Girl From South Africa. She liked it because of the good pictures and the setting of the story. Morah Mazal’s first movie was Lassie Returns Home. Mazal’s favorite game was called “Five Stones”. One of her special memories was when her sister knitted a blue sweater for her because she lost her first tooth. She learned Hebrew when she was little. Her favorite Jewish holiday was Sukkot because it was her birthday! She has not only been to Israel-she was born and lived there for 23 years! When she lived in Israel, there was no T.V., no refrigerators, no phone! We wouldn’t survive back then without all of our modern-day inventions!
My family is really big. We have four kids! I am the only boy. My oldest sister is 5, the next 4, the last 2. My grandparents from my mother’s side lives 9 miles from us, so we are really close. My other grandparents live about 50 miles from us in Palm Coast. My aunt lives in a different part of Jacksonville. My other aunt also lives in Palm Coast! My Great-Grandmother lives in Jacksonville also! I have Great-Great Aunts and Uncles who are “snowbirds”, meaning that they have a winter home in Florida and a summer home in New York. My Great-Aunt and Uncle live in Long Island. My two cousins live there also. Some of my other cousins live in Palm Coast. From my grandmother, I have realtives in Israel! I also have a MUCH bigger family……… the Jews! This goes to show that you have people related to you in places you don’t even know about.
