Red Robins Day

Hello future readers!

Well, we all got through the first week of school. It's weird getting back on school schedule after almost 3 months of summer! Anyway, on Friday after school, Cheryl, Sunny and I made plans to have "Red Robins Day". We weren't trying to leave the rest of our friends out, but well, you really get to know a person when you live with them for 2 weeks. It's almost like you're sisters. For example, I know that Cheryl twirls her hair when she's trying to fall asleep. Sunny snores! And both of them brush their hair for 20 strokes every night before bedtime. So we decided to celebrate our being back together with "Red Robins Day". We took Cheryl on a mini tour of our town. Not the whole town, just the good stuff like the park, the library, the candy store, the movie house and we ended the tour with Sam's Snack Shack. Sunny and I ordered crème soda floats, and Cheryl ordered a strawberry milkshake.

I was born here in Springfield, but my friends who have moved here from bigger cities say that living in a small town takes some getting used to. Cheryl thought it was weird that we had only 1 movie house, and no McDonald's. I tell her that it's really cool because everybody knows everybody your folks don't worry about you. I know she'll get used to things, just like all my other friends who moved here did.

Cheryl noticed the jukebox in the corner and put in a dime. She chose "Fire" by the Ohio Players. I love that song! Boogie time!

After we left the Snack Shack, Cheryl invited us over to her house. Far out! Her mom was really nice and was really happy to meet "those nice girls from camp she heard so much about". (haha!) We went up to Cheryl's room, and saw her dog waiting for her!

That pooch was huge, even bigger than Danny's dog, Muttley! Cheryl called her Butterscotch.  She was really friendly and loved to be petted. So we played with the dog and sat around and rapped. Cheryl wanted to know all about our friends, and school, and fun stuff to do in Springfield.

I really liked Cheryl's room. She was into horses, Nancy Drew books, and Wesley Eure who plays Will Marshall in "Land Of The Lost". She has a pretty doll named Samantha, and keeps a dish of candy in her room for company. Outta site!

We all had a pretty good time. We made plans to meet at the playground tomorrow after the Saturday morning cartoons were over. I love making new friends! I knew Cheryl was gonna fit in great with all our friends and love living in Springfield as much as I do!

Until next time , future readers,
Your friend,
Julie Newman
