Things I did this month:
Went to California for Spring Break
Learned to tie my shoes
Slept in until 12:30 in the afternoon... twice!
I joined the EJ Martinez Viking's Swim Team
I can read a beginner's book all by myself
I read to my Mommy every night before bed
I have a loose tooth!!!!

Random Conversations:
Mommy (to Ari when he finally woke up at 12:30pm): You slept in!!  It's afternoon already!
Ari (shrugging his shoulders):  Well... yaaaa... I was fuckin' tired.

*    *    *

Ari (on the drive home from the airport after Spring Break): I'm gonna freak when we get home cause I miss it so much.

*    *    *

Ari (on arriving home after Spring Break):  It's so good to be home.

*    *    *

Ari (while writing a story): That's a bad "a"... that "a" looks like someone who ate too much McDonalds.
