The Great Helium Balloon

Today Natalia went to a birthday party, and came home with a blue, star-shaped balloon, cowboy hat, and green balloon sword. Later I did a small test.

On the way home, in the car, I tried to pinch it, and could not. But when we got outside, I could pinch it so that the material touched. But when we got inside it blew up again.

That proves that in different temperatures, air moves into particles.

Out Of This World

Yesterday my mom, my sister Natalia and I went to the Space Museum. Then we found out that the museum would be closed for another 2 and a half hours because of a Russian New Years party for orphans. Luckily a few days before mom saw a newspaper article saying that right behind the Space Museum there is a exhibit of space related ice sculptures. Here is a list of the 3 most <> ice sculptures:
  1. A balcony-like platform on a hill with a slide
  2. A ladder attached to a round shaped U.F.O sculpture you can climb into with an alien standing next to the U.F.O and ladder
  3. A maze and then at the end of the maze a slide
The exhibit is open until the 1st of March so I will be writing about the different ice sculptures soon.

Enjoy this alien-colored writing!

3 grade Christmas Assembly

At the 2009-2010 Christmas Assembly I was an elf. A elf was the one who did small scenes in-between numbers. The other 3 elves were played by my classmates Erica, Jason and my best friend Gruna ( pronounced GROO-NIA\GROO-NYA ). I performed in the songs Dec The Halls with a solo, Rudolf The Red Nose Reindeer in the microphone, Warm And Fuzzy and James Penguin with small scenes. At the end every kid got a see-through plastic Christmas tree with candy inside, the parents got ginger heart-shaped cookies decorated by the kids and then disco with the music of ROCKIN ROBIN and JINGLE BELL.

Troika Ride

On a 3 horse troika ride at Kolomenskoe. It was 10 minutes long, and 2 circles, but it was so much fun. It was my grandma's ( Tina in CT's ) dream to do this. It was a little hard to get a troika, but totally worth it. After that we had a tour of Kolomenskaya.

We got to go in to the summer cabin of Peter the 1. Did you know he was 2 meters 40 sentimeteres tall ( sorry I only know the metric system. ). The big nail on the pole shows how tall he was.
