I’m rich!

I got my allowance on Monday. All the kids here in the orphanage get a monthly allowance. It’s different for different ages. I got $160.00! Well, Liberian Dollers. Which is the same as $1.60. But you can buy a lot of stuff with that!

I made a fort made out of palm leaves and sticks with Charlie and my friends and I like it.

It’s really hot at church and there’s only one fan in the whole Primary room and it wasn’t on today.

I like school in Utah better than I like school here. It’s really loud at my school because the walls dividing the classrooms don’t go all the way to the ceiling, so you can hear other classes when you’re trying to learn. And sometimes, kids just throw things over the wall and you’ll just be sitting in your chair minding your own business, and bam! You get hit in the head with a balled up piece of paper.

We went to the beach yesterday. It was fun. I always get lots of water in my mouth though and it’s gross. Also, myy eyelashes don’t cooperate right and I always get hit by the big waves and it feels like they’re getting pulled off.

Today is windy.

My feet are itchy.

On a scale of 1-10, I give this week a 7.

I’m going to go take my bucket bath now.

    So Ivy. What are you going to buy with all of that money? I liked the little suckers that you could buy at the little store in Zuanna Town from Morris, the town Chief. They were so good!

    Too bad it is so hot at church. It kind of makes it harder to concentrate doesn’t it. I am feeling ya!

    Have you learned anything new in school that you didn’t already know?

    I am glad you like the beach. If you dive INTO the wave, toward the bottom, you can miss the wave smashing you to the ground. You dive in and come out on the other side of the wave. It makes it way funner to swim in the ocean if you know that little trick! Try it!!

    Are you liking your bucket bath any better?

    It is good to read your blogs. I like to know what you are doing with your life.

    I love you! Gramma Jones
