What Has Been Going On

Bethany, Ellia, Faith and I have been getting over some colds. Yesterday Bethany, David, Mommy and  I had eye exams. David's eyesight is fine. Bethany and Mommy don't have to get to glasses, but they could. I need new lenses for my glasses. Daddy, Daniel, and I wear glasses. Amy only needs glasses when she plays music.

Today Bethany and David went up to the neighbor's house and raked leaves for them. They carried the leaves back to our house and made a giant pile in our yard. It was really fun going and jumping in the leaf pile.

Recently, I have been working on a slide show about the R.M.S Titanic. It has been really interesting learning all sorts of things about the Titanic. Here are some facts about it:

*It cost about 400 million dollars in today's money

*When loaded, it weighed 65 thousand tons.

*It carried 36 grand pianos

*It also used 14,000 gallons of drinking water for each day

*It almost got hit by another ship, as it pulled out of the harbor

*There were 2223 people on board

*Only 703 survived the sinking

*Violet Jessop survived the sinking of the Titanic and the Britannic

*The Titanic had two sister ships - Olympic and Britannic

I can't wait for Thanksgiving. We need to remember to give thanks every day not just a specific day.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
