Crazy Crayons

Today I am going to tell you about a recycling crayon program called Crazy Crayons.

This is a recycling program for broken crayons, used, unwanted crayons.

Recycling is good for the environment. Broken crayons go to landfills and the crayons don’t even break down. They just sit there for years. Recycling crayons reduces waste because the broken crayons will be made into new crayons and given to kids that need them.

Collect a box of broken crayons with wrappers on, send them to this address:
c/o Opportunities Unlimited
Community Work Center
2680 Oneida Lane
Rhinelander, WI 54501

Collect crayons from
- around your house
- from restaurants
- from schools
- from friends

The box is full mail it off!

Also - you can purchase recycled crayons in all sorts of shapes and sizes from the program as well.
For more information go to http://www.crazycrayons.com/
Thank you!

Action! Cut! Action! Cut! Action! Cut! Action! Cut!

I was in the filming of a movie last Saturday it is called “The Tamed Ones”. It’s about a young brother and sister living in a poor town in North America. I was am extra. That means that I was in the background, not a main actor.
We had to wait a long time while the crew filmed other scenes, with other people. Finally it was my turn. My job was to hide on some stairs and walk down some hallways. I did it over and over again because if somebody coughs or messes up a line, we had to start over again.
When we started to act they called out
"action!" and when we were supposed to stop, they called out "cut!".
I heard the words "action" and "cut" about 50 times!

I liked acting a lot! My favorite part was when we hid under the stairs.
Acting as an extra was fun and I was even paid 50 Euro. I would have done it for free because I had such a good time!

This is a picture of me after our busy day of acting. My mom took my sister and me to a Thai restaurant to celebrate our big day.

A Journal of My Recent Travels


Recent Books I've Read

I have been reading some books that I would recommend .
Great Dog Stories Of All Time , edited by Fairfax Downey and illustrated by Albert Orbaan.
This is collection of adventurous stories about dogs.
The Book of Virtues, by William J. Bennett. This book has lots of moral stories for kids. Each story has an important lesson inside. My favorite one was Chicken Little.
The last book I’d recommend that I’ve recently read is called Grossology and You by Sylvia Branzei. This book is about gross stuff in your body like blood, pus, sneezing, bumps, hiccups, and bruises. My aunt bought it for my birthday and I really enjoyed it. .

About Me

For my first post I’d like to tell you about myself.
I am 8 years old. I live in Belgium with my family.  We have a house in Virginia in the United States, where I was born. We moved to Belgium from Guam when I was 6 years old. Now I am in second grade at a francophone school. I have 1 sister and 2 brothers. Their names are Stella, Emory, and Arleigh.
Oh and my name is Addie and I have a dog named Dudley.

I play the violin. I do not have a favorite song because I enjoy playing every thing.
I like to ride my bike. I bike to school almost every day. In Belgium, there are lots of bike lanes. Many children ride their bikes to school. I learned to speak French at my school.

I love to dance, create art, and swim.
I also love to read books. I have recently read The Adventures of Pinocchio, by C. Collodi and Alice in Wonderland by The Unicorn Publishing House from an adaptation by Lewis Carroll. My favorite stories include, Junie B. Jones, mysteries, and Harry Potter.
My favorite author is Shel Silverstein.

I wanted to start a blog because I would like to share my adventures, inventions, and thoughts. I hope you enjoy. Come follow me!
