News Flash! It is Mystery Skype time! The Mystery Skype starts at 3:00. We are talking to 2 students from the other school. They asked questions and answered our questions. It is from 3 to 4 o' clock. During that time, they were guessing my countries better than us. Then, we did a little better. They were in Quality Schools International of Sarajevo.

One day in PE class, I was waiting to play capture the flag, but first, coach J would have to flip a coin. That is so the teams could decide which side of the park we would want. Two big fountains divided the park. Coach J brought a coin outside and was ready to flip it. He put the coin on his thumb, and flicked it to the air. Everything was so quiet that you could hear the air taking it away. I could see it rotating in the air. Heads-tails, heads-tails. My team wanted heads. I sensed that it was going to land in tails. Everybody was praying while saying, “PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.” I looked to my right. Joan was praying to god for tails. I looked to my left, Jenny’s back was towards the coins while pleading for heads. The coin went down, and coach J was about to step on it, but missed. The coin fell and started spinning. It landed on heads. Yes me team was awesome.

I was standing on a big sunny field, watching the player getting ready to kick. What would happen if I miss the ball? This player kicks very well. I think he plays soccer. I looked around, all the bases were filled. This is my last chance to get it right, or else my team will lose. The player kicked the ball in the air. I was so amazed how far the ball went. The player kicked the ball in the air. I was so amazed how far the ball flew. Players on my team ran on the shining grass, heading for the speeding ball. 1…2…3…home runs! I leaped in the air wishing to catch the ball. Sadly the ball rolled off the tips of my fingers. 4...5…home runs! Oh my goodness! The whistle has been blown. The game is over. My team has lost, but the other team did well.

When I was five, I was about three feet tall. That time I liked Soya milk. I liked to cry. When I was five, I really liked toy cars. I had about 200 of them. I had short hair and I was almost bald. At That time, I hated school, because my teacher was mean. They used bamboo sticks to hit us. When I was five, I spoke Malaysian to my Ayi.
Now that I am ten, I am taller. Now I am a hundred and forty one tall. Now I don’t like Soya milk, I like soda. I like electronic more than toy cars now. Now, I play soccer and I am the goalie. Before I had short hair, now I have longer hair. I speak English now because I have forgotten my real language, Malay.
I wonder what I will be like in the next five years.

The nine year olds had an an assembly about the Success Orientation, Trustworthiness. Mrs. Milan's nine year old class demonstrated trustworthiness by making the letters of the trustworthiness, each letter sating something like, 'Tell the truth' for T.
Groups of nine year olds made skits about trustworthiness. There were three skits. The first one was about a boy who wanted to check the time on his silver watch. There was two other boys that lied and told the boy that had the watch that the other boy stole it. They kept lying until 1 of the boys spilled it. In the same one they made the way it should have happened. There was another skit about two girls teasing a new student. At PE class one of the teasing girls could not find her shirt. The new girl hid it because she was tired of being teased at. There was one more skit about 3 boys.
After the skits, the nine and ten year old teachers gave out certificates to two trustworthy students in their class. In our class, Mrs. Varvel gave Anya and Jenny got the Trustworthy certificates. Other trustworthy ten year old students that got the trustworthy certificates was May, Gia, Heyone Jin, Prashansa, Woo Jay, Yang. Afterwards, we went to our fun activities.
