The Culpepper Spy Ring

The Culpepper Spy Ring

  Ella here. When Goo was writing about our adventures with The Revolutionary War Culpepper Spy Ring I was thinking that our life is like the clothesline they used to hang out secret messages for General George Washington. All the wash gets hung up at the same time but some things take longer to dry than others! The dry wash is allowed to be taken down and put away while the damp wash is allowed to stay on the line! Having damp wash that still needs to dry doesn’t make the clothesline bad, it actually proves that clotheslines are a good...

Sunday Dinner

Sunday Dinner

  Hey guys, Lizzie here. Goo hates it when we say we are “good” at Sunday dinner because we don’t want to try something new. She says if we are really “good” we would say, “I would like to try just a little piece because I never had it before“. Goo is big on “try it and see if you like it.”  She says trying out new and different things is a big part of jumping into the adventure of life. Click Here to see more Ellagrams!

Birthday Party

Birthday Party

  Ella here. Leonardo (Lizzie) asked me to go to a birthday party with her but I said I’m not sure because the party might be boring. But now I feel bad because Lizzie doesn’t want to go alone so I don’t know what to do. Goo says I could just make a decision to have a good time. That sounds like a “Goo crazy” thing to say. If that were true I could make a decision about everything. And then I would end up doing everything I don’t want to do and have fun doing it. That’s weird!! So Goo is saying, “no its not weird, its happiness, just one...

Grandpa Gooshey’s Apple Pie

Grandpa Gooshey’s Apple Pie

  Ella again. Oh well, today I promised to help Goo peel apples for our apple pies for Thanksgiving but I hate peeling apples so I was thinking of not doing it. But then I remembered that Grandpa Gooshey says peeling doesn’t have to be a ten it can be a six. Actually Grandpa Gooshey’s apple pie recipe is a true “6” not a ten because it includes some left behind apple skins from a “6” peeling! Goo says a 6 is always better than a 10 that never happens! “Grandpa Gooshey’s “Sweet Six” Apple Pie Recipe:” 6-7 apples, 1 cup of sugar, 1/4 tsp...

Words Are Weapons Too

Words Are Weapons Too

  Hey guys, Ella here to tell you “Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me” isn’t really true. Words are serious weapons. Lizzie La Tish and I got into a brawl and started calling each other names.  La Tish apologized first but I still felt bad like all the names we called each other were stuck on us forever. So we decided to get all those crazy silly names unstuck by writing down all the things that are great about ourselves and each other. Goo calls it replacement therapy and it really works a lot better than...

Bootie’s Story

Bootie’s Story

  Hey It’s Bootie. My turn today to tell you all my Ella true stories. Ok so as we all know Ella is almost always wrong and I am almost always right. Here’s why – for example: About 3 months ago Ella did something really lame. I forgot what it was but I can tell you it was really wimpiful, so what’s the chances of her doing something like that again – 1000 gigantic percent!! But I can’t get that through her skull because she says that’s lame to keep her stuck in the past and that she gives me a zillion new chances every week....

High School Yearbook

High School Yearbook

  Hey, Ella here. So Campbell Allie and La Rue found Goo’s high school yearbook and there was a note on one of the pages from Goo’s grandma which I think is my great great grandma actually. Anyway the note said “Yesterday is gone, forget it; tomorrow has not come, look forward; but today is here, live it”! So La Tish asked Goo if she liked what her grandma wrote and Goo told us what her favorite author Mark Twain said, “My life was full of many disasters, most of which never happened”. So I guess she liked what her grandma wrote. Bootie...

The Answer to Part 2

The Answer to Part 2

  Ella here. So Mr. Mouse says the best way to find out the answer to Part 2 is to find out how I do the same thing – maybe even to Lizzie.  Its true that sometimes when I start a brawl with her it might be because she’s not paying me any attention and is more interested in not slacking on her Instagram than hanging with me.  Anyway I’m not sure how all these ideas can help me but if you have any ideas please let me know like soon.

Second Chances

Second Chances

  Hey, it’s Ella again: La Tish says the best thing about her and me is that we keep giving second chances. I don’t really always like giving second chances like when Bootie says my hair looks like run-over weeds because I used too much conditioner! But then I remember that Goo says that’s because he really loves me and will get my attention any way he can, even if he has to say stupid things to get me crazy. So I have to ask Mr. Mouse about the Part 2 of all this – like how do I keep all this giant brotherly love he has for me ...

Under the Weather

  Hey, Ella here. It doesn’t seem like happiness lasts very long.

It hangs around a lot longer and doesn’t depend on a happy day to keep it going! Click Here to see more Ellagrams! Click Here to see Ella’s book...
