March

Happy March everyone!

The March birthstone is aquamarine, a turquoise colored stone. This gemstone was believed to protect sailors, and promise a safe voyage. People born in March are known to be close to nature but have a fiery temper.

They have a unique gift to give the world, and they are loved by their friends. They hardly ever resort to violence, unless their temper gets the best of them.

March is also Women’s History Month, so make sure that you celebrate all the amazing women that are and were, and thank them for all that they do.

Have a great month!

Love,

Kiran

Day 3: Tarpon Lodge and LEGOS

Hey, all!

Sorry I didn’t post last night. We got home from dinner at about 10:30 and I was exhausted, so I didn’t post my draft that I had already written. There was a power outage this morning so I couldn’t post it then.

Just so I don’t confuse you, I’m setting the publishing date to yesterday so you don’t get confused. What that means, is that it will display that it was published yesterday, even though it wasn’t.

Yesterday I got out my LEGOS from the closet and played with them. It is a set called Monster Fighters, where you get sets of different locations (example: laboratory) and you get some monsters (example: Dr. Frankenstein and his monster) and some Monster Fighters, who try to attack the monsters. So far I have The Crazy Scientist And His Monster, The Mummy, The Werewolf and The Swamp Monster. I hope to get the vampire set soon.

Day 1

Our first day in Florida was really fun! After waking up at 9:10, I went to the store with my dad to get some groceries. When we came back, we unloaded them into the fridge and pantry, and I poured two cups of iced tea and went down to the pool, where Kyra and my mom already were.

Updating Our Design

Some of you might have noticed Kiranmathew looks a little different.

We just changed the color scheme to mostly grays and whites. We also changed the header image to an open notebook with a pen on top, instead of the picture of Chicago.
