Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket

Dear Ladybug,

You are my favorite buggy because you are so fiesty and energetic! I think Cricket should have one issue filled entirely with Cricket Country comics! They're the best. To Rebekah A. (May 2007) and Caitlin D. (May/June 2008) I also do not believe in evolution. But I also believe that God created the universe. Just look in the Bible! I am a Christian and am also homeschooled. To all you people out there, homeschoolers should not be stereotyped as dumb kids who live on farms and wear old clothes. Here's a better picture: We get to wear our pajamas all day, have snacks during class, watch history movies, and even go on filed trips to the museum or out to eat occasionally!We also get to have a huge delicious breakfast and lunch, and drink sweet tea during math! (When it's cold)

To Emma K. (March 2008 - "Girls are just as good as boys.") I agree, boys and girls are equal (not superior or inferior) but they are different.  ~ Another thing you should know about me: I am crazy about horses! They are handsome, strong, powerful, and beautiful!  Anybody can love 'em. I also like to draw them. Could you have a drawing contest please? Also, it is there a place to submit to your contests on this website?

Dear Mona,


There is not yet a way to submit to the online contests through the Web site. You need to send entries snail mail. But we're working on it!

Mona, both Emily L. and I are strong Christians who believe in the Creation.  In the Down to Earth section, there is a thread about Creation and evolution.  Not many Christians go to it anymore, so we could use your help.  I'm homeschooled, and people in Maine (even though most people in ME dress like it anyway!:):)) have the same ideas of how homeschoolers look. :( My brother, who used to be homeschooled, had the same thought.  I was just like, Clay, you're homeschooled!  How could you say that????  He never answered me... :P Those points you made about being homeschooled are soooooo true!!! :):):) Pajamas all day rocks!!! :):) So does tea!! :):) Drawing horses is SO much fun!!  I do it a lot!! :):):)

Have you ever entered a Cricket contest?  I just entered the November/December one! :):) Do you have any pets?  I have a cat named, hee hee, Cat; a blue, dopey-yet-cute, male parakeet; a green, mean-yet-sweet, female parakeet; a male canary named Mozart that I sometimes borrow/pet-sit for my piano teacher; and I used to have two male gerbils, Sprite (my brother's tan gerbil) and Pepsi (my black gerbil).  They both got tumors and died :(, but mine lived to be about four!! :):):)

Welcome to the most fun and addictive site in the world!!Cool
