Genius Hour #3

This week staci and I made peanut butter pie. They were so good.



1 (14.3 oz) package whole Oreos (about 36 Oreos)
1 cup (16 tablespoons) butter, divided
1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter, divided
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream


  1. Finely crush the Oreos with a food processor, blender, or in a Ziploc bag. Stir crumbs together with 8 tablespoons melted butter until well combined. Press into the bottom and sides of a pie pan. Freeze crust for 10 minutes until set.
  2. Add the remaining 8 tablespoons of softened butter, 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter, and 1 cup powdered sugar to a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on low speed until smooth and creamy. Spoon the peanut butter mixture over the crust into a smooth layer. Place back in freezer.
  3. Place chocolate chips and remaining 2 tablespoons of peanut butter in a large glass or heat-proof bowl. In a saucepan, bring heavy whipping cream to a rolling simmer over medium-high heat. Pour the cream over the chocolate chips and peanut butter and let sit for 5 minutes, then whisk until completely smooth. Pour the chocolate layer over the peanut butter layer. Refrigerate, covered, at least 1 hours until ready to serve.

Iowa Lakes commuity College

I went to Iowa Lakes Community College. I had a lot fun of their because we got to see what it would be like if you went to school there. We even got to learn how to make fruit pizza. I think I would go to that school because it is very laid back and calm. On are tour we got to see what classes are where and how they take classes. We even got to see how they would take classes off of a t.v. screen. We even go to see in the child care room how to make things to keep kids busy. They showed how they would work on different motorcycles,dirt bikes,four wheelers. We learned how it is a well paying job and it can be fun once you get to know how to do it.  We got to meet some of the college kids and they would talk to us about what are some of the fun classes to take their. The way you can get into that school is you can apply to get in or send a letter to get in. You could also go to see someone there and ask how to get into there.

Genius Hour

My topic is singing. Because all the rest of the subjects were either already taken or they were to difficult to do. Music is also something that everyone enjoys and listens to.Some people like other kinds of  music like Rap,Blues,Dixieland and others but the thing with music is that music can make you focus and calm down.Music puts you in a joyful mood or it can put you in a bad mood that’s why music is so important it is what gets us ready for a big sporting event or reminds us of other people. Were learning something.I’m extremely excited! I was thinking about, Love Yourself by: Justin Bieber (even though I don’t like him his music has a good beat, for this song anyway.) And, I like The Sound Of That by: Rascal Flats. I’m not sure yet which one ‘m  going to do. Haley Dow is playing the guitar. While she is playing the guitar we will both be singing.

This Summer



This summer my family and I will be going racing. Last year on the July 4 my dad finished 3rd but the first 2 guys got dequeued for ruff driving. So then, my dad got 1st place. It was one of the happiest days of the 2015 race season. My brother and sister cheer on our dad all the time. We will be watching Nascar on T.V and my sister will yell ” Go dad Go”. My dad has 10  wins in the past 5 years.  In 2015 he won the Rookie Of The Year and he came in 3rd place for points. He also races 2 different race tracks. He races in Fort Dodge and in Webster City. It takes $1,500 for 1 race season for race fuel.

My family and I will also be going camping. We also go camping in the spring,summer, and fall. My family goes camping about 6 times every year. We camp for about 1 week each time we go camping. We also, go camping either at Brushy creek or Kennedy. My brother and sister usually play with their race cars. Sometimes we go on bike rides. My brother and sister’s favorite part is playing at the park. Sometimes we go camping and watch my dad race.


So Long, Farewell

In my blog I have a total of 5 posts , well 6 counting this one. I haven’t wrote any posts that are in my interest of writing and I haven’t wrote any that are school related either. I have a total of 1 comments. The post i liked writing about the most was Type 1 Diabetes because  my step mom has type 1. I

When I went to my conferences my teacher told my grandparents that we were doing a blog, so when we got home I showed them my blog and they read through it all and they told me what i could do to make it better. My dad thought the pictures made my blog look not so boring (and i also agree on that).

So long and farewell

Week 7(Camping)

My family and I always go camping.Camping can be lots of fun, but being prepared is extremely important. My step mom makes a list of what will need to be taken on the trip. Then you need to get your supplies,your equipment also needs to be checked before leaving. Another important step is finding the perfect camping site. You must also set your campsite up correctly. When you are ready to leave the campsite you have pack up correctly. Even though you are ready to leave right then. You’ll be glad you did the next time.  First you determine how long you plan to be camping and how many people you will need to provide for. Two of the most important supplies would be food and water.Even then it is always wise to take back up food supplies. You may even want to take some food that does not need to be prepared. A light source is always good to have also.  My family always brings a grill to cook our food on.  Another important item is cooking utincels. Bring extra clothes just in case the weather changes or you fall into the lake. My family always makes a fire at night and my grandma makes pies for everyone.Sometimes my borther and sister get bit by mosquitos a lot.  The two main camping places that we go are kennedy park and brushy creek.
