Exciting Day!!!


I have been enjoying my summer so far.  Yesterday was an extra special day!   It was Father's Day, Juneteenth, and my GiGi's birthday!  We had a lot to celebrate.
My mom and my Tias took my GiGi to the Atlanta History Center for a Juneteenth celebration.  I didn't even know what that meant before, but now I do.  

One of the staff members put on a one-man show about a Slave who created beautiful pieces of pottery. His name was Dave. Dave was a slave who learned how to read and write. When he  started to make the pottery he would sign his name and write a short poem on the side of the pottery. I could not read what he wrote on the pottery, because it was written in something called cursive. There was a note in the showcase and I could read that. My GiGi bought the book for me because I did not think it was a true story. There are many things I still don't know
about history but I love learning about new and old things. So many things are different now.

  








You can check out my DIY Tie-Dye shirt I made for my Dad on Youtube.  Now that was plenty of fun to make.  It was messy and GiGi said that we should probably do it outside next time.  But boy was it fun to make!   You have to try it!  We are going to make a shirt for me next time with some of my favorite colors.  I'll let you know how that turns out.

Can't you tell I'm excited!?!? 














I think the shirt turned out great!  
                                                                         
                                                  I think my dad really liked it too!


This was the best day ever!
