Terrible Trio Blogging this Week
This is Dori. You may have read a little about me and my sisters in "Enduring Hope." We're triplets named Dori, Lucy and Belle. Our mom has been sick so we live with our Uncle Joseph for now. Ms. Russell asked us each to write a little bit about Orchard Hill since Ms. Applebaum is on vacation, visiting her sister in Michigan.
Ms. Russell is helping me with the spelling and stuff like that. I'm not so good at that, but we're only going into second grade this fall, so give me a break. Belle thinks she should get to write first because she is good at that stuff, but I'm the oldest so I always get to go first. I keep telling her that's the law, but she doesn't believe me.
So, what do I think of Orchard Hill? It's a dumb place to live. I hate it here and I want my mother back. But it is sort of nice at Uncle Joseph's. There's always someone around if we need them. And no one ever forgets to buy food or toilet paper or stuff like that. And we really like being with Abby. She's our older cousin. She knows all this cool stuff, like how to drive. She'll be getting her license soon. She doesn't know anything about make up though, because Uncle Joseph won't let her wear any. Sometimes Uncle Joseph is a real party pooper.
He has rules about everything. He says what time we go to bed and how much TV we can watch and how many vegetables we have to eat before we can have desert. He is a tyrant. I learned that word in school last year. It means he's really bossy and makes you do everything he wants you to. He even makes us go to church - every single Sunday.
Then there are the boys. They are Abby's brothers, Noah and Peter. Noah is old, like almost eighteen. He doesn't pay much attention to us. Sometimes Peter will play with us, but mostly he says he's too old, even though he's only fourteen. That's old, but not that old.
So that's my family, except for Aunt Hope, but Lucy wants to write about her, so I guess that's about it for me. Thanks for reading (Uncle Joseph told me I had to say that.)
