Choose Your Own Adventure with The Storyboys!

I am happy I get to do this cool adventure! 🙂

Today’s post is part of a Choose Your Own Adventure Story written and hosted by T. Isenhoff and M. Isenhoff on their Storyboys blog. T. is in 3rd grade, and M. is in 6th grade. This story was their winter homeschool project. Travel over to their blog to start at the beginning. Have fun!


“There is no way you are getting me inside that creepy old house when something is moving around in it,” Ed said.

“Okay. We can come back later.”

“All right,” Ed agreed reluctantly. “But I need half a pizza and a two liter of Coke first—for courage.”

They went to Tony’s, scarfed down a Meatlover’s, and played Minecraft until the sun went down. After watching Jurassic Park, Tony told his mom they were spending the night at Ed’s and the two boys rode their bikes back to Cursed Mansion.

Ed shivered. “I hope whatever was inside is long gone.”

“Come on, let’s go in,” said Tony.

The front door creaked as it opened. It was dark inside. They each pulled out a flashlight and shone it around the shadowy room. The light landed on furniture covered with old sheets. Spider webs coated everything, and each step kicked up clouds of dust.

“Nobody’s been here for a long time,” said Ed as they approached a stairway leading down into blackness.

“Then who is smoking?” Tony asked, sniffing the air. “A ghost?”

Ed froze, his light shining down on the floor. “Probably whoever left these footprints. Let’s get out of here!”

Just then, the door blew shut behind them, and they heard the sound of creaking footsteps coming up the stairs.

Sleepy Phyllis

This is part of a contest Ms. Hill is doing. You can see the contest rules HERE. We are supposed to do a Phyllis fashion show, but I think Phyllis likes her pajamas best.

Phyllis says it is too cold out and she is staying in bed to snuggle. She won’t see her shadow because she won’t come out of her hole. 🙂 So she says early spring!

It is a cute story and is good for Groundhog Day!

My next Thrive Art Project – A Dragon

This is my best try at this. I made some mistakes and have to cover them up some. I didn’t think I would do a good job, but I am really happy at how it looks. I took my time with it. My dad said the dragon looked like the number 2 so I shaded a 2 into it. 😀 I thought that was pretty cool. 😎

dragonThis was the last lesson in my beginner Thrive Art course.  I really liked taking the classes. My teacher Ms. Theresa was nice and she explained how to do the pictures so I could do them. I am going to ask my parents if I can do the next classes. You get to learn how to do oil pastels and water colors. 🙂

I Crashed!

I crashed my gokart. I didn’t get hurt (just my thumb a little) but I was mad I couldn’t finish my race. 😳 I was mad because I was in fourth place and beating two boys I usually can’t beat when they pushed me up the wall. 😡 There was only one lap to go!


I can’t wait to race again! I will beat them again! 😀

My New Art Project – A Sea Plane

I am doing an online art class online at Thrive online Art School. I liked doing this picture. I like how the plane came out. In the lesson there were buildings and snowy mountains in the background, but I wanted green mountains and people riding bikes in my back ground. I hope you like my picture! 🙂

My fourth art project – A PUPPY! :D

I am doing an online art class online at Thrive online Art School. I really like the classes and I learn a lot. I like this picture the best so far. I liked this lesson because Miss Theresa told us how to fix mistakes by changing the lines. I made a mistake on my puppy’s ear so I just gave him an all black ear to cover the mistake. My puppy’s name is Joe. I hope you like it! 😀
