aprilfool.jpg
It’s that time of year again in Club Penguin! April Fools is just around the corner and the team here has been working non-stop on a party that will be full of all kinds of April Fools silliness! Every year we celebrate April Fools in a different way and this year is no exception. When you show up in Club Penguin between March 28 and April 2 things will be a little strange. Even the newspaper will have a bit of a twist!

I was able to grab a sneak peek of one room from the party. We’ve never done anything like it before in Club Penguin and I’m really excited about it. We would love to hear what all of you think about it!

Until then…waddle on!

Dad bought me and my sister a new DVD called The Water Horse.  We loved to watch it! Then we went to the mall to buy our treats and prizes for making good in school. Mom gave Gela Happy Feet sandals and an angel necklace.  For me, my mom gave a Hello Kitty necklace and 2 Spiderwick books (books 4 & 5).  I loved them!

So happy summer vacation everybody!

Sarah Noble was lying under a tree one night. She, her father and their horse were going to the wilderness. John Noble, her father, bought a piece of land in New Milford which is far away from their own land, and they have to go there so her father can build a house where there family could live.

 

The darkness was all around her, but through the branches she could see one bright star. She remembered that in the morning her mother told her to keep her courage during the trip with her father. So that night, sleeping under a tree with her father, she began to hear strange sounds. Her father told her they were an owl, a fox and a wolf. And Sarah tried to be brave, remembering what her mother told her about keeping her courage.

 

They continued to travel in the morning and the next night they went to a settlement. The saw a house that was brown and it looked like home. Her father said that they will be staying there for the night Sarah’s father introduced the family to her. The woman named Mistress Robinsons led them near the fire. Then they invited them to dinner. That night Sarah and her father slept by the fire.

 

After travelling some more, Sarah, her father and their horse Thomas were already weary. The Indian trail had been narrow; the hills went up and down, up and down. Sarah and her father were tired, but John Noble said that it’s only a mile away. So Sarah became happy and even picked some pink flowers and put some on the ear of Thomas.

 

John Noble found a cave in the side of a hill, and made a hut for him and Sarah. He said that they will live there until the house is built. Below there was a valley, and there was the Great River. Sarah looked and looked and liked its beauty.

 

The piece of land was very good, and John Noble would build a home that is big and he would build a fence and shed. While he built the house, Sarah Noble would stay in the cave and guard their place.

 

When her father and Thomas went she got her Bible and read lots of stories. Sarah would read on and on. And then one day she heard sounds. There was a rustling sound of feet coming quietly nearer and nearer to her. And Sarah saw a bright eye peering at her through a clink in the log fence.

 

They were INDIANS!

 

They were crowding to her, but they were young Indians, not any older then she was. Still, there were many of them and Sarah was afraid. But she remembered the words of her mother. So she opened the Bible and read to them. They came nearer and nearer.

 

The Indian children came back again and again to play with Sarah. She was not afraid of them anymore, and she began to know each one. She liked a brother and a sister better than all the others. They would go together where the wild strawberries grew. And when John Noble would come home with a duck he had shot, or a fish caught in the river, Sarah would cook for him and also give him ripe berries.

 

Sarah visited their houses, and found out that her father has a friend named Tall John. And Tall John is the father of her friends. They had lots of fun.

 

Finally, when the house was finished, Sarah’s father need to get their family so they can all live in the new house. Her father told her that Tall John will keep her safe until he comes back. Sarah was sad and was scared, but she kept her courage. She went with Tall John and kissed her father goodbye.

 

Sarah became friends with the Indian children and played with them every day. She also helped the women when they spread the corn out to dry. Until one day, Sarah found her father has come back. She was so happy to see her family! She left the house of Tall John to stay with her mother and the baby and all her brothers and sisters were in their new house.

 

Sarah’s mother told her that she had been brave. She had kept her courage in all the things that happened to her and she was growing fast. She gave Sarah that doll that they brought, and Sarah was happy to see the rest of her family finally together.
