  2. hi Joellen tell your sister to not kill your crabs miss you so much is it fun bout schooling hey I changed home schooling to bout schooling sence you are not at a house. Funny right?

  3. Joellen, Hi, I am a friend of your Dads. I have never met you, but I wanted to see if you would like a “pen pal” friend? A Pen Pal is a name you call someone that you share letters with and you’ve never met them before. I did that when I was your age and made friends with people that are still my friends today. You tell each other about yourselves, and share pictures. I am a Grandmother to a 9 year old girl named Lillian. Maybe Lillian can read your blog too and you can be Pen Pal friends with Lillian. She lives in Whitestown Indiana, which is close to Indianapolis. Well, I’ve asked you lots of questions, so I hope we can be friends. Tell me if you want to be Pen Pals with Lillian Alter.
    Have fun on your adventure!! Sincerely, Susan Canal
    PS I will try to learn how to post a picture of me and Lillian so that you can see us. Lillian is very smart with the computer, so she probably can figure it out! 🙂

  11. Joellen- I enjoyed reading your first blog! I didn’t know oatmeal was one of your favorite foods- me too! I’ll think of you every morning when I am eating it. I think it’s really cool that you’re excited about learning Spanish. Do you know any of the language or have you learned any in school? If not, I bet you’ll catch on quickly! Can’t wait to hear more about your adventures. Lots of love, Aunt Jenny
    p.s. Bridget says hello. 🙂

  12. It was fun to read your 1st blog. Jackson blogs with his 3rd grade class at school. My favorite foods are crab legs and cheesecake. Are you getting excited about Christmas? We just got our tree decorated tonight. We can’t wait to see you guys at grandma Ruby’s in a few weeks and look forward to hearing all about your trip!

  13. Hi Joellen – just love your first blog and the attached photos! I have just 2 questions:
    1. Is there a hotplate aboard your sailboat so your Mom can make you oatmeal? and
    2. Do you use rubber bands when you rainbow loom?
