This year we did a lot of different things to simplify our life. This is what we did: first we sold a lot of stuff. This is what I remember. We sold lots of books, a bag of Barbies, a set of fake kitchen stuff, a pool, and some tools. The pool was $100. I don’t know why, but someone bought it. Ian and me made $120.
Second, we packed up what was left, and moved to into a two bedroom apartment. Grandma and grandpa helped us move. We rented a moving truck. On the day we moved we bought pizza for lunch. We were still packing when it finally came to lunch time. It was hard work. It was 11:30am when we where finally done. It took 20 minutes to get to the new apartments. It took a while to unpack. Then grandma and grandpa left and we went back and cleaned and cleaned for days. Then we got settled in the apartment.
Another simple thing is daddy got less work and I think it’s great! We get to have more fun with him. We eat supper with him almost every night. I think it’s great here! We can go swimming in the winter too! Yeah! It will be super fun (if it’s not to cold). Yippy! It will be the best winter ever! Maybe the best winter in my life time! We might go on winter vacation to though, either way it’s fun here. When you have time you can come swim here with me.
What I like about our simple life is, it’s easier to clean up our room now. Hip,hip,hurry ! Yeah! Our porch is shady. It’s a short walk to the store and library. There is lot’s more time with my dad.
The best part of our simple live was going on vacation this summer. We went to the Grand Canyon, and saw grandpa AK, and went to the beach. I even became a junior ranger in Canada and the USA. I became a junior ranger three times. Ian became one two times! The End.
