Some journal entries from the 4th grade. The spelling has been cleaned up so it is readable, but the grammar is the same:
23 Jan 1986
Today was no fun and exciting. The no fun part is what I made on my science and social studies test. On my social studies I made a 75.5. On my science I made a 68%. The exciting part was that the fire trucks came. They dryer caught on fire. So,..... The fire trucks came. The rest of the day was school and homework. Sister got sick today. I wish I would too. It's bed time.

Sister is not sick, but Brother is. Today we went to the film festival. They had some very good movies. They started very late. 2 of my favorites were about 2 sisters that fought a lot. The other one is about Corduroy. He is a bear (teddy bear). He is looking for his lost button. Sister is sleeping with Ellie. As for me, I'm sleeping with Lara. We are listening to Peter Pan on my record player. Well, I think that it is time to go to bed. Good night. Bye.
Ellie was my Cabbage Patch doll and Lara was my sister's cabbage patch doll. And Sister and Brother are not the names of my sister and brother, their names have been changed to protect the innocent. lol
27 Jan 1986
Today was sad and exciting. The exciting part was the Challenger went up into space. The sad part was that it blew up. It had 7 astronauts in it. One was the first teacher in space. They all died. Mom said if she was asked to go into space she would do it. But I can't think of loosing my mother. It's bed time. Good night. Bye.
