    My, my thank the Lord our God Huckleberyy Finn has returned and promised to be civilized! I am so happy, I have been crying all day. I don't know why he done it but I don't care either. That poor lost lamb, why I am gonna show him, the lifht of the Lord. I also gave him some nice new clothes for he came trotting back in those raggedly old clothes of his. Now today after I cried and prayed for Huck, we all got back on scedule. Huck came in for supper by the ring of my bell and afterwards I taught him about Moses and the Bulrushers. Now Huck still has some work to do; I mean today he asked me if he could smoke! Smoke, can you believe that? Smoking is such a mean practice and so unclean! Well I best be going, My dear sister Miss Watson is pestering Huck again.

    Well this morning Miss Watson and I were drinking tea down in the parlor and in here comes in Huck. All dressed in the nice clothes I gave him but with his own added touch. Huckleberry was covered from head to toe in grease and clay. Now Miss Watson, well she started up an ol' big fuss; pestering poor Huckleberry and telling him to pray. Well I felt so sorry for the poor boy, so I cleaned him off and sent him off to pray in the closet with Miss Watson. And on top of him being scolded, the people in town think they found his Pap. Poor man drowned himself in the river for they found him floating down on his back. They buried him right along side the river, well the man had it coming to him anyway.

    Oh, I am so proud of my little Huckleberry Finn, he has been improving so much and really starting to buckle down. I ain't ashamed of him at all for he is doing so satifactory. Huckleberry has learned to read, write and do him mathematics. Good thing too because everyone in the house now doesn't do so much scolding and yellin'. Well except for today, Huckleberry accidentely spilled the salt shaker and I believe went to throw some over his sholder. But my dear sister got to it first and slapped his hand away. Huck seems to be alright I hope; I told him I would put a good word in for Him.

    Today is the day I should be praying not writing but I thought I should just write down my thoughts. You will never believe it but Huckleberry's Pap has returned and has brought nothing but trouble for Huck. First, he tries to steal all of Huck's money and even Huck himself. Well Judge Thatcher and I went down to try to become one of Huck's guardians. Unfortunatly the new judge thought it best not to break up families and let Pap stay around Huck. Well I got mighy mad and could not take anymore of his drunken foolishness around my house so I told him to quit sticking around here or I'd make trouble for him. Pap got mighty mad and kidnapped my poor Huck and took him up the river. Yesterday Miss Watson sent a man up to try and get Huck to come back. Well the poor young man came paddling back scared half to death saying Pap was shootin' at him and Huck says he'd rather stay there. Miss Watson and I have been praying all day for God to help us bring our Huck back.

    My tears are dropping on the page as I'm writing tonight because my little lamb Huck has been murdered! I just can't believe it but I was told that Pap came running in as a real mess saying "Huck's been killed quick someone come, come help me!" The men of the town then sure assured me that they found his hair on an ax and all. So a bunch of them got a skiff and went on looking for his body for a proper burial. They were throwing over loaves of bread that had quick silver in it so as to show us where his body is. They were also shooting cannons to make the body float to the top. They couldn't find his body, nothing to bury and give the the Lord. So now many people are looking for the one who done it. There''s a $200 award for Pap and a $300 award for Miss Watson's slave Jim. Personally I think that Huck's old Pap done it while he was drunk out of his mind. Well I better go off and pray with Miss Watson for Huck to be put in the good place.

    Likes/Dislikes:
    I enjoyed this book as much as the other book in class. It was a fun story to follow and interesting to disect. Talking about how Huck can make up stories on the dot was really fun to listen too. Also his encounters with others were very fun to watch because they were always to the extremes and always brought danger or trouble. The only thing that I disliked about the book was how I never got to finish it all, but that's okay.

    can we learn?
    Somethings we can
    learn from reading this book is not to judge people by how they look and to do what your heart tells you to do. Both of these concepts were practiced by Huck and Jim. They both made the book?right choice and became friends and Huck helped Jim to freedom even though that was not what society told him to do.
    Essential Questions:
    -What role does society play in shaping who we are?
    Society plays a huge role in shaping who we are because we grow up learning what they tell us and don't think otherwise. They make the decisions on what we believe in unless someone else tells you differently.
    -What does freedom mean to you?
    To me freedom means having my parents trust me and let me go places and be by myself. Also freedom to me means not having to wait around all day to be told what to do but doing my own stuff.
    -How do you go about making important decisions?
    Well, first I look at the which is the better decision by looking at the pros and cons of the matter. Next I would consult my parents and see what they think is better for me. Last, I ponder the decision for a long time; because I am really bad at making a difinite answer. Finally, I decide which matter is the best for me and my future and go with that.
    - What does Huck Finn teach us about what it means to be human?
    Huck Finn teaches us that it doesn't matter what you look like but how you act to be human. I think that at the end of the book Huck Finn learns this lesson and then considers Jim human and not part of anyone's property.
