She loves it and the first times she charged it she didn't want to leave it alone she said so herself I agree. I hope everyone had a good time celebrating a holiday. needless to say baby mid-sis and I did.

Monday, December 24, 2007

this is what Christmass is all about




Remember that Jesus was born on December 25 to save us from sin while you and your kids are opening presents tomorrow . With that said Have a Merry Christmas and a great 2008

Today is the day that I met Zoe.



The year was 2003 and I was in seventh grade. I just came back somewhere and mid-sis comes out to say "Az we got a surprise for you." I didn't believe it at first but got out of the van and I saw y mom with the video camera. As soon as I saw her I knew I had a dog. The only thing was that we got the wrong dog her name (That we gave her) was Pepperment. It turned out that our dog was in New York in the ice cold snow instead of sunny CA so we took her back to the airport that night. Flash forward to Christmas Eve 2003. We went to the airport to get our real dog. She was so cutie. Baby got to hold her first. That day we went to PETCO to get her bowel and stuff. I got to name her. You see because of my speech impairment due to CP talking for me at the time (and still is) hard for me. So I wanted to give her something I could say easily thus she was called Zoe

Today Zoe is a well rounded dog. She's is a friend to all in our family. She gives me the best slobbery kisses and stared in a video for Spanish along with me. I love my soft cotted Wheaten terrier

Help

As some of you may remember I had a old spainsh teacher who I adored on my old blog that I deleted . Well I email her but most times she doesn't email me back. Ms A is someone who meant a lot to me and now with all my new problems I though of her and wished I could talk to her anyway I am going to share with you the entry I typed to send to her about what happing at school and since she probably wont email me back I though I"d share it here



Dear ms A


I havening a bad time at school. My conduct has been horrible yeah just ask ms R. It's get ting so bad that I might have to be on a behavior plan the scened week of school. I am trying to get better thought but it's hard and today it wasn't any better ether. I needed help with my math final and caused a ruckus. I have to finish the test tomorrow but I don't know any of chapter 7 and have no tutor. In English my teachers (one is a Teacher in training) told me that she going to implement a behavior plan for the whole class but for me she is making cards and 3 to 4 cards equal the dean. To make it worse the head teacher sapped back at me something along the lines that we are not taking in jokes. My grade drooped from a A to a B . My teachers are that fed up with me. I feel like a bad person LG is a jerk . She turned her back on me for a girl n who she works with all the time instead of me.

I love to go back in time to the times that I got in trouble just for talking to her too much. Remember you had to move us. I love to go back to where I was a good kid and ask I am in trouble I am scared and sad I don't want to go to the principles office three times in Jr high was enough I need help soon before I mess up more
Any advice?

in honor of Annette I am going to repost a poem I made for my friends mom who passed away this past summer. Her name was Gail and like Annette has a kid with a disability so here it is

AAA Tribute to Gail Yoshimine

By: AZ Chapmen

Patience, Caring, Woman

Three words that described her well.

She who loved to help any man,

Even those who seemed invisible to man’s eye

Because she wanted all humans to succeed

She who handed out uniforms that made us feel united,

A team.

She who celebrated the disabled,

For who they were

For their ability.

That they had to offer the world

She who loved smiles on others faces.

I know that she is in heaven

With angels all around.

Know she is watching Devon

Down on the ground.

To see what he is doing around town.

Know she’s watching Kim and Greg.

And the kindness that they will bring

I know she’s watching Jon

She really loved to watch him do his thing.

And I know she’s watching me,

A kid on the team.

For a dear woman who I’ve only known a season,

I will miss you for many reasons.

I’ll remember your kindness.

And patience

Your soul

Your memory will last with me as I play,

Coach

And cheer

For the basketball team
Or when I go to Half Moon Bay.

And when someone else helps me see

The very special woman that I am and will continue to be

Thank you for all you’ve done for the coast-side special needs kids

From a kid on the Coast-Side Cougars

Who has NLD and CP.

Getting into the christmass sprit brought to you by Brady's Mum

You Are Rudolph
Sweet and shy, you tend to be happiest when you're making someone else happy.

Why You're Naughty: You sometimes stick that nose where it doesn't belong

Why You're Nice: Christmas would be a sad affair without you!
