Non-Fiction/Architecture/Design Today, I read an article on Dornob, and it was about a home made inside of a hill. It was made by the two people who wanted to get the house made for them, and any passers who wanted to help.

I’ve already done both, but this is practice to start the pre-algebra stuff. I learned the commutative property, the associative property, and the order of operations. My mom found a grammar error…
