Exterminate!

Hi, Princess!

My favorite show is Doctor Who. He is a Time Lord from another planet who travels through space and time in a Police Box. A Police Box is basically a kind of telephone booth that they had in England before you were even born! Anyway, he always travels with a companion. The companion is usually a human. This season we have a new companion!

Can’t wait!

Love you always,

Fractions

Hi, Princess!

You know, for some reason I was thinking about when your mom was a little girl and I used to help her do her homework. Most parents hate to help their kids with homework, but I actually enjoyed it. Especially her math homework.

I remember helping her learn fractions. Everything from improper fractions to mixed numbers to factoring, to least common denominators, and all that good stuff.

I was looking forward to the day when I could help you learn math and science too. But you probably don’t even need help, you’re such a smarty-pants!

Anyway, just checking in to let you know I love you, love you more, love you mostest!

Blue moon

Hi, Princess!

Guess what, today there was a blue moon! I know that sounds kinda awesome, but all it really means is that there were two full moons in one month.

See, the moon goes all the way around the earth every twenty eight days. A full moon is when the moon is positioned so we see the sun’s light reflected off the moon so it looks like a big ball, and that happens once every twenty eight days.

Now, usually a full moon happens only once a month, since most months have either thirty or thirty one days. But this month, there was a full moon on July 2, an another one today, July 31. I guess it is still kinda cool!

A walk on the moon

Hi, Princess! Today is July 20 2014. Guess what happened on July 20 1969? The first person walked on the moon! Before that, everyone said it couldn’t be done. After that, lot’s of people did it. This is a picture of one of the astronauts on that day.

So, when someone says you’ll never, ever be able to do something, don’t believe them!
