  1. Hi Katelyn,

    I'm so sorry that the link to the Canadian show didn't work! That's too bad!

    It sounds like you really enjoyed the 'Britain's Got Talent' program. Isn't it amazing how many different talented people there are in the world??? I bet there are some very talented people in your school! And perhaps you're one of them! Do you like to sing or dance or act in drama productions at school?

    I hope that you're able to get out to play and enjoy the beaches or go tramping a bit during your summer holiday time! Sometimes it's so hot here in the summer that we stay inside during the mid-day to avoid the sun, and we watch a bit of television then. Perhaps that's what you do too.

    I like to knit and sew and so I often will have the television on at night and just listen to a program while I'm knitting and cross-stitching. It keeps me company while I work on my projects.

    I'm glad that you're taking time during your holidays to participate in this blogging program - just great work you're doing! I look forward to your next postings!


  2. Hi Leslie,

    Thank you for taking time out of your day to comment on my work I like to sing and dance but i'm a bit to shy to perform in front of a big crowd.

    Katelyn :)

  3. Great job Katelyn I really think that you continuously doing a amazing job!

  4. Hi Katelyn,

    I'm glad that you're a singer - I can understand why you're a bit shy to perform in front of a crowd. But perhaps one day your class will prepare a dance and/or a song and you can perform on stage as part of a group of classmates. Wouldn't that be fun?!

    Thank you for writing back!
