the life of a tween



Again,  I am soooo sorry I haven’t written in a while. Life is so crazy sometimes! What with school and martial arts and Koa’s soccer… anyway, I’m super pumped! Want to know why? Three reasons:

A. My birthday party is really soon

B. My actual birthday is pretty soon after that (I’ll be eleven!)

C. School’s almost out for the summer!

And once school’s out, that makes me a sixth grader! An official senior! Well, in elementary school. But, I will be a sixth grade student doing French immersion!  And even better that I get to do it with one of my best friends, the one and only, Cate Ries! Cate is really smart, and I am sure she’ll have no problem  learning everything over again in a different language! It’ll be really tough for both of us, but I’m glad I’ll go through it with a friend by my side. Like I said, it will be a challenge, but I’m really excited. Just put your head to the wind and keep on moving. No matter how hard it is, we can’t stop.

Dear readers of this blog,

I just wanted to let you know that  I love you. You are amazing and beautiful/handsome and talented and a pure genius! I mean it. No matter what other people tell you.

Another thing.

If those other people are your friends throwing negative comments in your face, I hate to break it to you, buuuuuuut…. you need to drop them and say, “Girl, get outta here! I don’t want to see you or your negativity in my personal space again!” and get some new and improved friends!

It’s your choice. Quite simple if you ask me.

Well, that’s all I got for motivation.

And for things to write.

And advice.

Well again, I just wanted to let you know that I love you!!!

I know, I’ve been gone a long time. But Halloween was A-maz-ing! I have no idea what I was, all I know was that I had a really awesome slightly transparent spiderweb cape!!!!!!!! I had two friends who were Thing 1 and Thing 2! Oh, and Zoe was a piece of bacon!!!! LOL! Here’s the sad part….I had a sore throat!!!! So I had to stay home on Friday. Whatever!! I got to go to Jethros and get pancakes the size of pizzas! Don’t believe me? Take a look!

Hi! Soooo sorry I  haven’t written in a while! It’s just that I’ve been so busy with school and karate, I’ve hardly had any time to even think about my blog! I can’t even believe that I’m in fifth grade already! Oh, and on our first math test on Thursday, I got 35/35! I’m in a grade 4-5 split class ….with 2 teachers! Ms. Brown, on Mon. and Tues., and Ms. Montagano for the rest of the week. And in french class, I’m the best at saying the alphabet. Probably because my mom sang it to me when I was little. It’s weird, because last year I absolutely hated french and this year I like it. Maybe it’s because I actually get a grade on it this year. Hmmmm…… I have friends in almost every grade! 1, 4, 5, and 6!Anyway, for any grade 5 girls out there, if you have any problems, boys or school, just make a comment and state your problem. I’ll give you some advice!


Your friend,

Kaia Richardson

Anyway, on July 4th, which is the day the USA was discovered, we went to the parade, which was so cool, plus i got a ton of candy. But what was even better was the running races after the parade! I ran in the girls 8-9 race. & guess what place i got? 1ST PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!! I got first place in the girls ra-ace! hey, that rhymes! (ROTF) July 4th is also my gramma’s b-day. But there are a few things you should know about me:
