An Update from Autry

‘Ello, guys! This is Autry, here on Tad Town. I am here because I know my mom’s passwords to everything, and she doesn’t know what to write this week.

*****Okay but stop for a moment and read my blog, if you havent!*****

Okay, back to Tad Town. We have decided to forsake our Spring Break and to take a “Midwinter Break” instead. I think it’s a good idea, since Easter is on a Sunday, so we’ll have that day off anyway. So this break is a more EFFECTIVE BREAK!!! Yesssss!!!

So, what have we been doing?

Does this answer the question?

We are so obsessed with LOTR, GUYS. SEE IT’S MAKING ME PUT THE CAPS LOCK ON AND NOW I’M IN BOLD BECAUSE I’M SO FREAKING OBSESSED WITH LORD OF THE RINGS!!!!

Okay, so the Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey isn’t out on DVD, but it’s on Amazon instant video! So we bought it in HD last night and watched the whole thing! This is the third time I’ve seen it!

Here was the first time:

And so now, oh happy day, it’s on amazon! We watched all the behind the scenes videos because it’s interesting to see how big movies like this are made. So much work goes into it! And mom thinks it would be interesting if we wrote a paper describing the differences between the 1977 Hobbit cartoon and the 2012 movie.

So also we’ve been freaking out more about high school. Sometimes we want to go to Community College and sometimes we want to homeschool ourselves. It’s an ongoing debate. Me? I like the idea of community college. I went to OCC when I was 11. But apparently regular high school can get you more scholarships! So at the end of the day, I’m not sure…

Also, we are enjoying our homeschool group! It’s a group for gifted homeschoolers, and it’s really fun! Decca has made a friend there, and Tru and I like to sit on a blanket with the other teenagers in the group and draw, and make jokes that we find incredibly amusing, but that the passers by don’t seem to appriciate.

And our drawing.

So Decca’s been busy with Scooby Doo. He writes thousands of words a day about that cartoon dog and his crazy adventures. Sometimes I’m like, “Decca stop…” And sometimes I’m like, “Well I’m just as much of a LOTR nerd, so never mind.” Tru and I like playing this story game where we take turns writing sentences. It’s on google drive so we can both do it at once!

Oh, and our dear cat Newspaper passed away this week 😦 he was such a good cat, too. He will be missed.

On that happy note, this is Autry, signing off to do more break-related things!
