The IRON MANual

Hi my name is Abishai.

Today I am going to tell you about my retirement plan. My career plan is to be in the UFC, but I have learned that mixed martial arts is a sport that you don’t stay in as an old man, so my retirement plan is to become IRON MAN. It has been a childhood and preteen dream of mine to create a flying crime-fighting suit of armor that I could use to protect the city I live in (wherever that is).

Last Sunday I don’t know what came over me, but I just really wanted to start working on it. So, my dad let me have a binder, and I started to draw designs for it like an arm brace, the chest plate, the helmet, and the energy source (it is going to be solar powered). Because my dad is a prepper I decided to go with solar power because, if the apocalypse does happen, I won’t have to find gas, diesel, or water. Part of my weapons arsenal on the suit is an electricity blaster, tranquilizer launcher, missile launcher, plasma blasters, and a frontward EMP blast. I’m also going to have an artificial intelligence unit inside my suit, and his name will be something unique or something complex. Ahh. I know what to call him. I’ll call him Bob. Perfect!

This is my retirement plan. Pretty boss, right?

Peace Out!

Guess what? The picture below is of me as a little dude with an almost real Iron man.

Hi my name is Abishai.

Today I will be talking about my career plans.

My previous career plan was to be the white Michael Jordan. That was always my dream. Now, my career plan is to be a professional UFC fighter.

One of the reasons for that decision is when we first moved to this neighborhood there was a kid named ____ (name withheld for liability reasons). We had been friends for around two weeks when for no apparent reason he started messing with my younger brother Benaiah. I told him not to mess with my brother. So let’s just say by the time that fiasco was over the kid whose name I won’t say had a bloody nose and a black eye. After that his 15-year-old brother didn’t like that I took whatshisname down, so he tried to beat me up. I literally flipped him into the grass.

So I am going to start taking tae kwon do, and then I will start taking judo, and when I am old enough I will try to get into the UFC lightweight category.

That is my new career plan. PEACE OUT!!!!

Hi my name is Abishai.

Today I am going to talk about and tell you how to make a good pot of oatmeal. Normally, I make a pot of oatmeal for our family of six, and it usually feeds us for one week. We all really, really love oatmeal, even my little sister Astrid. She gobbles that stuff up. Well, that is enough stuff about me.

Here is my recipe for scrumptious oatmeal…

Ingredients

  • Water-12 cps
  • Salt-3/4 tsp
  • Oatmeal-8 cps
  • Cinnamon-1 ½ tsp
  • Brown sugar-3 ½ cps
  • Vanilla-2 Tbs
  • Milk-2 cps

Instructions

  1. Fill a big pot with all your water. Remember, this is for six people.
  2. Put it on to boil and add the salt.
  3. Pour the oats into the boiling water.
  4. Add cinnamon and allow to cook. Then add milk and let it finish cooking.
  5. Add brown sugar and stir. Then take it off the heat.
  6. Add vanilla and stir. After that, your DONE!

Serve the oatmeal and let the rest cool a little bit before you put the pot into the fridge.

Options for enhanced oatmeal are endless. Really, you can put virtually anything in it. My list only begins with…

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Banana
  • Apples
  • Cinnamon apples

So there is your recipe for perfect oatmeal and ways to make it even better by adding some pizzazz to it.

Hi my name is Abishai.

Today I am going to talk about me being able to cross something off my bucket list. At Taco Bell they have a “Taco Twelve Pack”, and usually I share one with my dad and brother. We each get four tacos.

Not today though!

Today, I crossed eating a “Taco Twelve Pack” off my bucket list. I, Abishai Powers, ate an entire one of them solo.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Abishai-Taco Bell-bucket list

My family nickname is Pig, but, wow, to be completely honest, by the time that was over, I felt pretty sick. I had never eaten so much food at one time before. It was invigorating. My colon was very energized by it, though, because I had to go three times that day.

So, that is the story of me eating a “Taco Twelve Pack”. Hasta la vista, bro-migos!

My dad found a cool book he read that wanted me to check out and review for you guys. It’s called Discovering Harold, and it is by another homeschool kid like me, except she’s a girl.

I thought the book was pretty good. I’ve never really thought much about what life is like for a deer, especially with hunters and stuff. I am glad the deer found some nice humans to hang out with.

I think it is a very good book and if you like animals or really good stories, then you will like this book. I think Hannah is a really good writer and her brother is a good artist. I like drawing much better than writing though, but that’s just me.

You can find the book and buy it on Amazon.

Thanks.

My Boo Dog Project

Posted: October 13, 2015 in Science

This is my Boo Dog Project. I really want a Boo Dog because they’re so cute and cuddly. My aunt Honey is the first place I ever heard of one. My dad said the first thing I needed to do was analyze it, especially the money part, so I did. Here’s what I came up with.

  • Boo dogs are Pomeranians
  • a Boo dog costs $1,000 at least
  • I’ll probably need dog insurance because Boo dogs are fragile and dog hospitals cost a lot. I found a plan at www.petinsurance.com/dog-insurance that covers accidents only. If you just want emergency coverage for your dog, this plan is ideal for you. It offers low-cost coverage for injuries only (like poisonings and broken bones), but not medical conditions. It is $10/mo.

I also found out the following…

  • Boo dogs live for 12-16 yrs
  • the leading cause of death is trauma probably because people step on them by accident
  • what will happen if I go to college

If you touch my boo dog without permission down the hole you GO!!!

What I came up with is that I cannot get a boo dog right now but I think with a consistent job for about a year I can do it. I’ll also need to figure out what to do with it when I go to college in a few years.

I wrote this report with my Boo dog pencil.

Note from Dad- As soon as I saw this title pop up in an e-mail newsletter, I sent a note to Sharon Gibson and told her that we wanted to try it for the boys. We’re big on making cooking a big part of our homeschool. It’s a great way to learn practical math and science skills and also teaches the boys a useful craft. I keep telling them that when they get older, a great home-cooked meal from a guy will really impress any prospective wives. Even better, we’ve worked through several of Homeschool Legacy’s Unit Studies in the past and love them. I highly recommend them for your homeschool. In addition to the fun the kids have with them, my wife and I enjoy teaching through them. This one was no different, except for the bonus that we had some really great meals from it.

If you want to try out this or any of the Homeschool Legacy studies, you can find them at their main website HERE or at many of the homeschool conferences. I’ve bought books from them at both.

Alright, enough from me. I’ll turn it over to my son.

Cooking Up History with the Founding Presidents

This unit study tells the history about the first four presidents, their wives, and their favorite desserts. It also shows you the recipe to make those desserts.

Me and my mom read Cooking Up History, and the first lesson was George Washington. George Washington was a very interesting guy, especially since he was the first president and a general in the Revolutionary War. He is awesome, and his favorite desert was cherry pie. So, me and my mom made the pie, and it barely made it past dad. He loved it!! (Note from dad- I ate about 80% of the entire thing.)

20150814_162454

Though I do not like cherries, it was pretty fun to make. I got to roll the dough and everything. I also poured in the pie filling. We also learned about Mr. Washington’s wife. They had a fairly confusing relationship because they were seldom together. It was pretty cool to hear that Martha helped the injured at Gen. Washington’s military camp.

The second president we learned about was John Adams. He and his wife were the first presidential family to move into the White House. The funny thing is that they moved into the White House while it was still being built. They stayed in one of the only rooms that was finished, and Mrs. Adams did not have a clothesline so she hung them in one of the unfinished rooms. The most absolute coolest thing is that John Adams had a pet alligator. My dad and I think that he got it because they did not have a Secret Service yet. We do not know for sure yet though.

20150814_163052

We are not done with the book yet, but we are looking forward to finishing it, and I can’t wait to make more desserts. I highly recommend this to other homeschoolers. It is very fun and tasty at the same time.

That’s all folks!
