~Went to Activity Days and finished an entry in her journal (that they made 2 weeks ago) and learned about good manners and courtesy. For the first entry in their journal the girls made Bioglyphs.
The round face means female. The 2 long curly strands of hair mean that she was born in February and that she has long red hair. The 29 freckles indicate she was born on the 29th day of the month. The circular eyes mean she has perfect vision and the eyes looking to the side mean she has blue eyes. Her eyebrow shape indicates that her favorite color is purple. The shape of her nose means she walks to school (from the kitchen to our school room). Her necklace doesn't have any charms because she is not involved in any sports, clubs or groups. She has a right ear because she has brothers and a left ear because she has a sister. The one dot on the lower part of her left ear is because her sister is younger than her and the 2 dots on the lower part of her right ear is because her brothers are younger (for those of you who don't know Unicorn has a half-brother from her father's remarriage). Her mouth indicates that she loves art and her cheeks indicate that she loves chocolate ice cream and mint ice cream. Her 1 eyelash indicates that she has 1 pet.
****After I finished this post, Unicorn decided she wasn't done for the week. Click HERE to see what else she did! You will also find the Legend for the Bioglyph!
