My name is Reagan. Reagan Laura Peterson. I am 11 years old but look much younger: I look no more than eight on a good day.
People always tell me I look like Laura Ingalls from "Little House On The Prairie". (I don't know if that's a good thing or not.) They say I have the same hair, the same face, the same eyes; I look just like the one from television; people are always asking me if I'm Melissa Gilbert's daughter! LOL
They said if there was a new movie or show about "Little House", I'd be perfect for the starring role. I would like to be an actress, but I don't know if I could read my lines for a bunch of strangers; that would just undo me!!
That is one reason why I don't sing solos at church or be in any talent shows: the people. I don't like doing things in front of people; I'm not exactly miss graceful here, if you know what I mean! (I'm always dropping things or tripping over my own two feet!) I'd much rather play with a few select friends or play by myself; I'm happier that way. Always have, always will be, I guess.
Anyway, my name is Reagan, and I'm 11. I live in Hope, Arkansas, with my mom and dad, my annoying little brother Johnathon (he's six and a regular little pest!!), and my cute baby sister, Lindsay Harper; she's six months old, and is completely adorable! We also have an iguana named "Spike" and a Pomeranian puppy named "Jewels".
I will be going into the fifth grade at Hope Elementary; I just got out of fourth grade, passed all my classes. I was so relieved; if there's one thing I fear, it's failing!!
Some of the things I like to do include skateboarding, riding my bike, climbing trees, playing baseball (yeah, I'm a tomboy!), reading, drawing, being with my friends, and sleeping in on weekends. LOL I also love to watch tv; my two favorite shows are "Little House On The Prairie" (shown on cable, in reruns, but still, it's a great show!) and "America's Got Talent".
Another show I like is "Mulligan's Stew", which most people never heard of, but it was still a good show. It wasn't on long; it got cancelled, which made my mom mad. (She liked that show; she got me watching it on DVD.)
I did like "American Idol", but it got stupid, so I no longer watch it. I am glad the one guy beat the other one who was favored to win; I didn't like Adam Lambert; still don't. He's creepy!
I'd much rather listen to Kris Allen anyday; he's cuter than Adam! :)
Well, Johnny's calling me (he's locked in the bathroom again!), so I'll help him get out. Stupid little brothers; they're the worst thing God ever invented! GRRRR!! I will write in here another day; until then, this is Reagan Peterson saying bye for now! God bless!
~Love, your new friend in Arkansas, Reagan Laura Patterson, age 11.
