Being the youngest is not fun

  Being the youngest is NOT fun.


1.Being the youngest is NOT fun because, you get picked on , you don’t get as many privileges, and you get less attention.


  1. One reason being the youngest is NOT fun is that you get picked on, You get picked on because the other kids think you are weak. For example, when I was 3, my older cousin who was 7, he wanted to see how strong I was, because he thought I was weak but, I wasn’t so, he told me too punch his nose, and I did. Apparently, I punched so hard that I gave him a bloody nose. I proved him wrong that I was NOT weak. When you get picked on, they expect you to cry or tell on them. When kids pick on you, they might use techniques such as, choking, punching, bullying behavior, kicking, and you get the point. That’s why being the youngest is NOT fun.                                           
  2. Another reason for why being the youngest is NOT  fun is because you don’t get as many privileges. You don’t get privileges to stay up late, get a phone until you’re 10 well for me that is the rule you. You don’t get to stay up late because you have to get “rest” for the next day, even if it is 7:00 pm! I mean, like, why can’t we sleep at 8:00 pm or something?  I know that parents like to sleep in on the weekends but, letting the older kids stay up late? I mean, come on! That’s not fair at all! Anyway, not letting some kids get phones until they’re 10 is totally NOT fair. It’s not fair because

– some people are responsible

-they kinda need a phone in case of emergencies like when they’re lost         

-they need to have entertainment

The last reason being the youngest is NOT fun is because you get less attention. You get less attention because your parents spend so much time with you when you were younger that they want to spend time with your siblings (if you have any,  which in my case I do) and not me.

  1. You mostly get less attention because they don’t spend enough time with your siblings.

     People should care because if you are the youngest and you want to know why you get less attention or why you can’t get a phone then you should read this because this has most of the answers. All I want you to know is that being the youngest is NOT fun.

Colonial America

In the article “Colonial America” the main idea is that Colonial times were hard. It was hard because the natives lifestyles were different than europeans. There were many tribes with their own languages, yet, they all had deep respect for land. Lots of the tribes made peace treaties with the europeans. Africans were slaves to the spanish they had to work as carpenters, blacksmiths, bakers, and weaver. Colonial times must’ve been hard with all the colonies.

Say NO to hunters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who here loves animals? Well I certainly do. Don’t you wish that animals will be alive forever? Well, here come the party poopers. The party poopers are hunters. Hunters all around the world kill animals sometimes for food, and sometimes for no exact reason. These animals shouldn’t have to go extinct because of hunters. Animals were actually here before us. When we came along we were just taking up there land. We should stop hunters from being mean and make them be nice because animals gave us some of their land. So in return we should treat them with respect and not bother them. Say NO to hunters!!!

Hello world!

       Hello World!


I’m back! My name is Kara and I’m 9 years old. I have a 13 year old brother and a 6 year old dog. I am the youngest in my extended family.


My favorite animals are big cats & dogs. I HATE bugs/insects (especially spiders). My favorite color is hot pink.


My favorite things to do are bake, take care of animals of all kinds (except bugs/insects), paint, read, blog, and play in the snow. I love to play the video game https://play.prodigy.com . I am obsessed with cotton candy. If you like the things I like then this is the blog site for you.

Help save animals!!!!!!

Do you love animals? If you do then help save animals! Animals all over the world are getting killed either by hunters for their skin or our litter. Whatever animal you love is out in the wilderness about to be lunch. If you want animals to live then help me fight for them! What I mean is help stand up for animals!  We need to stop hunters from killing animals for their skin! We need to defend the animals that live in the wild! There are less then 500 Siberian tigers in the wild just because of hunters hunting their skin! Another reason animals are dying is because some of us throw litter all over the place! The most dangerous items for animals are plastic, glass, and wrappers. If you throw a plastic bag in the water you are killing sea turtles because sea turtles eat jellyfish so, when you throw a plastic bag in the ocean the sea turtle will eat the plastic bag and it will die. Here’s a note to all the hunters in the world: stop killing animals for their skin! It’s not right to kill innocent animals! Think about it! If you were an animal and there was a hunter who just killed you for your skin, how would you feel? Oh, and what about your family? How would they feel? Sad right? This is a important message to help keep the animals from going extinct. Hunters all around the world killing animals would become a target for the animals family. Here’s one last thing I’m going to say. If you become a target be careful because animals were here first and if we’re not carful they might be here after us to. Help save animals!

My dog Mocha



When I was in kindergarten I had a yorkshire terrier.

His name was Mocha. He had dark brown fur. We got him from a pet shelter so of course, he wasn’t trained yet. Here’s what happened: I wanted a dog for a long, long, long, long, time so I started begging for one until one day my parents finally let me get a dog. We went to so many shelters to get the perfect dog. Until I saw him, my whole family approved of him because we all thought he was the one, the dog we were going to get. The only problem was it took over 4 hours for them to finally give him to us. When they gave him to us we got in the car and we drove to smash burger.We ate as fast as we could. After we went to Petsmart to get supplies for him because he was the first dog that we ever got  except for my mom because when my she was little she had 1 or 2 dogs. When we got home we started to rub his belly. He seemed to like it. We could tell from the look on his face. We did that for a long time until it was bedtime. Before we went to bed we put Mocha in a  small playpen that he could go the bathroom in and he can eat and drink in it because it’s attached to a another cage so they can eat. The next morning I woke up extra early so I can play with him. I put some food into his small, little food bowl  and we refilled his water bowl.Then we realized we needed more food! So that evening we went to Petsmart. After we had him for a few months we had to give him away. There was a reason why but I can’t say it. A few years later my mom’s cousin had a dog but she was pregnant  and the Doctor said she can’t have a dog anymore because of it. So she gave the dog to… US! I named her snowy. Her fur is so soft! I love snowy!

Already She was in 1rst place!Then Amelia craten, dropped tacks in front of Rex and he slipped!Amelia crossed the finish line. Even though she won people kept saying she was disqualified.  Then the vet came and said he had a broken leg and that they couldn’t compete. They took Rex to the vets office. Luna was mad at amelia. “Ha!Now I don’t have to worry about coming in second place now Luna!” said Amelia.  “Don’t be so sure about that because I also have Brittany Amelia. ” Luna went home depressed that the next race was next week!Luckily she had another horse named Brittany. The next week Luna expected to see Amelia at the next race but, she didn’t.  Her Dad said that Amelia was sick and couldn’t compete. Luna was happy that she couldn’t compete especially after what happened last race. Luna was waiting for the race to begin when somebody on the speaker announced “Amelia craten is joining the race. ”  Luna kept repeating the same word in her mind: “dang it!” Amelia smiled like a evil person. This time Luna looked where she was going. Amelia got in front of Luna. This time Amelia’s horse tried to buck Brittany but Brittany went to the side and Amelia’s horse Johnny ended up on the ground but they got up. Luna already passed the finish line and had won the race. Amelia was so mad. She was mad because she came in last place!Luna then got a call.   “Hello?” “Hi Luna its the vet. I called you because Rex healed and that you should probably pick him up. ” Luna was so happy when she heard that and that’s how it always was for her.
