Fun Day 8/10

Hi all! Mckenna here with the second part of Christina And The River Recue!
P.S. this part should be longer than last week.

Finely June rolled around and the bags had been all packed. Christina, Beth and Josie had been the lucky dolls chosen to come on the trip. Unluckily Christina had been stuck in the same bag as Beth and Christina was in a bad mood. As Christina set crossly beside Beth as their bag was loaded into the car, which the humans could never seen to carefully enough, the bags jerked and Beth's elbow hit Christina in the ribs.

"Hey!" cried Christina

"Hay is for horses Christina" Beth said softly.

"Will you quit being such a smarty?!" Christina retorted.

"Why are you in such a bad mood?" Beth asked.

"Will you just be quiet?!" complained Christina.

"Fine I will, I don't need to talk to you." replied Beth as she looked the other way.

Soon they where on their way. The Hawbakers, Castles, and Royers all where coming so everyone decide to car pool. The boys climbed into on of the cars and the girls in the other. As the cars pulled away from the parking lot the dolls unzipped the suitcases, bags, and carriers that they were in and climbed out. They crawled down among the bags, blankets, and sleeping bags to a sot near the bottom that was big enough for them all. As Christina looked around she saw all her friends. The Castle girls Julie, Elizabeth, and their little sister Chrissa. Kaya Royer and her little sister Savannah. Rebecca Hawbaker and her own sister Josie and cousin Beth. She knew she loved them but sometimes they got on her nerves. Like today when they where finishing packing and Beth was being very bossy. Or the other day when her twin sisters where playing tricks on her or when Josie was just plain grouchy. Ho well maybe it would get better and in the mean time she didn’t need to take it out on other people, they didn’t do anything. Christina sighed and looked around again. She noticed Rebecca looking at her. Christina raised a questioning eyebrow at her and Rebecca scooted over and ask,

“Is everything all right?”

“No.” Christina sighed. “I’m mad at Beth”

“Why?” ask Rebecca

“Well, Yesterday morning I accidentally spilt some water on her. Then she got mad at me and yelled at me. And this morning all she seemed to do was criticize everything that I did. I am older than her but she still makes me mad.”

“I know what you mean. Rachel is the same way but she is older than me.” said Rebecca “You have to be kind to her but you defiantly don’t want to.”

Christina nodded her head.

“Maybe you should just sleep it off.” Rebecca suggested.

“I think I will” Christina said as she laid back closed her eyes and went to sleep.

Christina finely woke up when the car came to a stop and the dolls where hurrying back to their bags. Christina jumped up and followed them. Presently she felt her bag being lifted out of the car and set down. When the unpacking was done and the tents where set up, the girls decided to play with their dolls.

"Where should we play?" asked Heather, Rebecca's owner.

"Maybe we should play down by the lake on the sand bar." Said Amanda.

"yes let's!" said Kendra, Julie's owner. So of they went done to lake caring their dolls. When they got there they set the dolls down and began to build something. By the time they where half done the dolls could tell what they where making. A doll house out of sand. The dolls where very excited! After the girls where done building they played with the dolls for over two hours until they heard Donna yell

"Time to eat!"

"Come on" Amanda called "we will be back later." after the girls left the dolls continued to play in the house until suddenly they realized that it was getting dark.

"It's getting dark now what?" ask Christina

"Maybe we could camp out here." Answered Kaya "The girls left our sleeping bags out here."

"And besides the girls will probably be back" said Julie sensibly, as always.

Christina nodded her head. She understood that letting humans know they where alive could be a disaster.

"To bad we can't get our night clothes on." said Elizabeth.

"I know" said Beth "but if the girls where to come back and fine us in our night clothes who knows what would happen." When the dolls had finely settled down into conformable positions, which took a while because the dolls had trouble all fitting in one room, the girls had still not come back.

"Does anyone have a watch?" ask Josie

"I do" said Rebecca "it's 10:30"

“Why haven't the girls come yet?” Ask Chrissa

"I don't know" said Julie "maybe they forgot us."

“OH! NO!” Shrieked Elizabeth In a very high voice and Kaya quickly put her arm around her to keep her from freaking out any further.

"Left!?!" Savannah cried an she grabbed on to Kaya and held on tight as and Kaya put her other arm around her. Christina sighed and laid her head back and looked up at the sky. Suddenly she gasp "The situation is not getting any better, look at the sky!" all the dolls looked up to see a giant storm rolling in. Suddenly the wind picked up and Rebecca cried

"It's going to rain!" The thunder rolled and the lightning cracked as the dolls looked worriedly at each other.

"What do we do?" ask Julie in a worried voice.

"Maybe we should go back to camp. The girls probably won't remember us." said Josie.

“Yeah maybe” said Kaya “but we had better decide real soon.” At that moment a loud crack of thunder came and Chrissa and Savannah screamed. That’s all it took to send the dolls running down the path and to the woods. They ran until they reached a fork in the path.

“Which one do we take?” ask Rebecca.

“I don’t remember.” said Beth as the rest of the dolls shook their heads.

“Lets take the one to the left” said Julie.

“But” Christina said to protest, but another crash of thunder sent the dolls running down the left path. As the dolls ran down the path they began to here the sound of rain on the leaves above and the occasional crash of thunder that kept them going. But soon the younger girls began to get tired.

“Guys! Wait up!” called Elizabeth. As all the dolls slowed down Christina snapped

“You guys are just plain slow!”

“We are not slow!” Shouted Elizabeth.

“Yes you are! And you are a Big baby too!” Christina Shouted back.

“Nutuh” Cried Savannah.

“Yes You are and I would be better off with out you!” Christina said and as the other dolls stood open mouthed she turned around and marched off. But by the time she had walked 10 steps away she heard Josie yell

“Christina come back!” Tina whirled around.

“Why!” she demanded.

“Well,” Josie said and she lowered her voice “We have to stay together.“

Christina sighed and walked back to the group but she still walked a little ways ahead of everyone and did not talk to them. She walked along with her eyes on the ground when suddenly she hit something very hard and fell backward.

What Do you think Christina hit? :) Find Out next week!

The Farming Report 8/7

Hello Joe here and this week are going to look at how we Pick Tomatoes! Now I will mention that this is pretty easy but it is a important part of the farm work so I will look at how its done. :)

As we approach the workers we walk up one of the many rows,
As the workers walk slowly along picking tomatoes on their row,
The row is designated to two people. One worker on each side.
The workers pic into these green crates. Here we see several large stacks.
When picking this is what we look for! :)
When we find a ripe tomato we put it in our crate.
Picking can be hard work. :) lol
Pick and repeat! :)
Here is one of the workers looking out over the patch.
Here is what he may be seeing!
Coming up the row.
Sometimes Odd tomatoes are found. What do these tomatoes remind you of?
When a crate in full it is set beside the row.
Where it is then picked up,
And slid into the truck.
Or handed to someone on the truck.
A job well done!
Hope you enjoyed!

The Verse of the Week 8/4

Hi! Today's scripture comes from Psalms 11.

 1 In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?
 2 For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.
 3 If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?
 4 ¶ The LORD is in his holy temple, the LORD'S throne is in heaven: his eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men.
 5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.
 6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.
 7 For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright.

I hope you enjoyed this selection of scripture!
