A little about The Cat of Bubastes

It begins with a great battle between King Thutmost III and the king of Rebu. Which was a nearby small village. Thutmost won and the rest of the men of the Rebu begged for mercy. The king died in battle and his family moaned in grief. The queen so heart broken, drinks poison because she would rather join her husband in death than be a slave. This leaves her son, the prince Amuba, with his bodyguard to become slaves. Amuba and his bodyguard, Jethro, are sent to serve the high priest of Egypt. The high priest is a kind master to them and he was so ‘kind’ that he even gave Amuba to his son, Chebron. I for one don’t find this super nice and kind, but O.K. It does however become better as the two boys become best friends and go on adventures together. Jethro is sometimes invited as well.

A while later a hawk is attacking the ducks of the palace and so Chebron and Amuba go and start fighting the hawk. They were throwing spears, and while Amuba hits the hawk Chebron’s arrow is knocked off course and went flying into the cat pavilion. As you all should know cats were very important to the Egyptians and so this was bad. It gets even worse when they see that it hits a cat and that cat happens be a very special cat, The Cat of Bubastes. This cat played an important role to the Egyptian religion so this was even worse than it was before. I’d hate to be Chebron right now. This cat also happened to be the chief of all animals as well as the most beautiful cat. Chebron tells his father and his father tells him that he believes that cats are as equal to to all other sacred animals. He is then faced with a choice, he can turn himself in or run away with Amuba.

I know that the rest of the story will be sad, probably because of how said it is already. Because of the Egyptians culture, Chebron will probably be put to death.  I like the book so far and it has been really sad, but it is still a good book.

An Israel Ruler

After Moses died the Israelites needed another person to lead them. Joshua then becomes leader over them. The people decide to send 2 spies to the city of Jericho, where Rahab hides them. Rahab is a woman from the city who was influenced by the Lord to be the two men’s house keeper. So while the spies are in the city they were staying in her home. A little while later they are able to escape the city without getting found and return home. Joshua sent the spies there to see if the city was strong because they were going to try and over throw them. When the spies return they tell Joshua that the city is indeed strong but they believe the Lord will help them win. So the people of Israel go to cross the Jordan river but the river was in flood at this time of year. So in faith the priests set foot into the water and it kind of does what the red sea did with Moses, it makes a clear path for them to go across by going dry. And the city of Jericho is destroyed by God without a fight taking place. The whole city is burned and the Israelites take their loot for the building of there future temple.

After School

I’m home schooled, so I get done before most people, so what I like to do is go on Musical.ly and make new videos. Sometimes I do a small craft or write a story. I like to sing and play games too.

In the summer I like to go outside and play with my friends super early in the morning. When they have to go back to school I get sad but I just do my work and go as fast as I can so that I play as soon as they can.

The Plague of Frogs

The plague of frogs is the second plague that happened to the Israelites in Egypt in the time of Moses. If I lived in Egypt when this happened I would be hiding inside my house. Because I hate frogs. Frogs are gross and slimy and just disgusting! However, some types of frogs appear to be adorable, like all of the colorful frogs found in the Amazon forest. I love those, they might be poisonous, but they still are super cute and adorable. The frogs that came in the  plague are the big, super slimy, gross ones.  And they were everywhere! So that is all that I would do other than eat, sleep, and drink.

People who try to go against Gods will

When the people in the Bible try to go against Gods will they get punished pretty badly. In fact one time is when Dathan and Abiram are going against God because they don’t feel that Aaron should be the high priest. They actually get swallowed up by the earth itself. How it happens is God tells Moses that if they kept doing this, going against him, then he would do something to them that no man has ever seen, that has never ever happened before. So when they did continue to go against God he opened up the earth and Dathan and Abiram and their families were all swallowed up by the earth. The next part of the story goes about how after the two men’s followers see this they try to flee, but they can’t because in the start of their rebellion they burned down the taburnacle. So they were then, after trying to run away, burned and consumed in the fire.

MY DAILY ROUTINE SEQUENTIAL ORDER

My morning/daily routine is set in sequential order, which means the order I do things matter. The first thing in the morning that I do is read my scriptures and say my morning prayers. Then I shower and get dressed. Then after those two things are done it is breakfast time, after breakfast I brush my teeth and floss. I then start to get my school done. First with doing math then history and finally English. After all those I get my extra stuff done last, like typing, spelling, reading, Spanish and logic.

After all that I get to have to make sure my chores are done. I have to sweep, do my kitchen chores, maybe laundry then I finally have free time and can play with my dog.

SOME FACTS ABOUT HISTORY (EGYPT)

This essay is about some of the ancient Egyptians.

 

The pyramids.  During the Old and Middle kingdoms the Egyptians built huge pyramids as tombs for their kings, or pharaohs. There are over 30 pyramids in Egypt.

Tomb treasure. The tombs of rich Egyptians were filled with everything the dead Egyptian might need in the next world. Kings were buried with amazing treasures,  but soon robbers found out about this and  broke into the tombs and stole the treasure, so very little has been found.

Mummies.   The Egyptians tried to stop dead bodies from decaying, because they thought this would allow the dead person to go on living in the next world. These specially preserved bodies are called mummies.

The Egyptian Empire.    Around 1720 BC, Egypt was invaded by the Hykosos. They had chariots and horses so they were easily able to beat the Egyptians who fought on foot. But soon the Egyptians learned how to use chariots and fought back and won over the Hykosos. After doing this they realized that they were strong so they went and invaded other nearby lands and that’s how they became an empire.

Life At Home.     Egyptian houses were built out of bricks made from straw and mud. The bricks were shaped in a wooden frame and were cooked in the sun to harden. Most houses only had one to two rooms, but rich people lived in large luxurious villas.

MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR

 

My favorite time of year, well I will have to say I don’t have one. I love all of the seasons and I will tell you why. 

So first, I love winter because my birthday is in February and Christmas is also in winter. I love my birthday because, it’s my birthday.  I love Christmas because I love what my family and I do. We draw a name and have to either make them or buy them a present. Then after completing that, you can make or buy something for someone else. It’s very fun. 

I love Fall because of the hot then cool weather it provides. Also my family loves food, we love to eat, so Thanksgiving is a very special holiday for us. Plus, we love to talk about gratitude and why the first Thanksgiving was celebrated. They started practicing capitalism and got rid of their socialistic community so they were finally able to prosper. 

I love Summer and Spring because of the hot weather I love to be outside when it’s about 78 degrees. I also love Easter.  I love to get chocolate from the Easter bunny but more importantly I love to celebrate Jesus and his resurrection. 

Those are just some small reasons why I like these seasons.

My Favorite Parts of This Past Summer

In this essay I am going to be talking about my three favorite parts of this past summer. The first thing I am going to talk about is how I got my dog, then about the Fourth of July, and then about my cousins craw-fish bowl. Let’s get started.

First, how I got my puppy. It was a Thursday I remember, when my family decided that we would get a dog. At first my mom said no because she didn’t want to pay for the expenses. But when my brothers and I said we would pay for the puppy, my mom finally said we could get one.  So we started to look on KSL, which is our local online ads where people sell things. That’s where we found pure bread black lab pups. Since my cousin has a white lab we thought it would be cool to get a black lab. So we called and they said that they still had all of their puppies. We got ready to leave, but it turned out that the puppies were a two hour drive away, but nothing would stop us so we did it anyway. Once we got there it was hard to choose which puppy because there were 7 girls to choose from. We finally chose what we thought was the cutest one and we named her Luna.  She is super hyper, fun and cute. And we all LOVE her.

Second my Fourth of July. My Fourth of July was very happy because all of my cousins (except for the little babies) slept over. It was so fun. All of the kids under the age of eight slept outside in my back yard with a tent, while every kid eight years old or older, slept on my big couches in the basement. Before we fell asleep,  my two cousins Logan and Brookely, and I played Roblox on my computer. We were squished on that couch that night. I remember waking up and playing Minecraft on the XBox. Then all of the aunts and uncles came to pick up their kids and have breakfast altogether.  We had a big, huge, breakfast buffet. We had cinnamon rolls,muffins, egg casseroles, fruit and juice. It was so good!

Then there was the craw fish bowl at my cousins. My cousins have a craw fish boil every year.  This year one of my friends that live in their neighborhood, Halle, went to it also. They had a big water slide to play on during the barbecue. Every one went on it, even some of the parents. My brother Ethan was always trying to do a back flip or front flip. It never worked though, he always got too scared to do a back flip and then ended up doing a summer salt instead of a front flip. My friend Halle and I tried to stand up while doing it, we failed.

Those are my three favorite parts of this past summer. My favorite part out of those three is probably the first one, getting Luna. We ended up having to get lunch on the road since we were starving on the way there. It was so cute when she was in her little box asleep in the car. We gave her a box with some old towels and blankets in it so she wouldn’t get mud and probably pee all over the car. When she slept as a tiny puppy, she curled herself into a little ball. But now that she is bigger, she lays flat out on her back and stretches when she sleeps.

IF I WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO BUILT THE TOWER OF BABEL

Brueghel-tower-of-babel

If I was one of the people who built the tower of Babel and my speech was changed to  Spanish,  I would find some other people who also spoke Spanish and they would  choose me to pick where we would settle down. Of course this would take me a couple of days to figure out since I have to pick a place where all of these people can live and survive. I also have to pick a place where crops can grow, and a place with good game so that we would have fresh meat to eat with our crops.

I would choose to go to India because I think I could grow crops there and there is plenty of wild animals. They have really good spices to help with preserving our meat. It also doesn’t really get cold there so you can grow crops year around. AAEAAQAAAAAAAAKPAAAAJDgxYzkwMDkyLWNiODItNDE4OS1iZmVhLWVjZmYzZjc2MWI5Mw
