Hello Friends,

It's me again, Tucker Dohr.

Happy New Year!  I hope everybody has an awesome year full of doing  all the things you love to do! Me, I'll be dancing.  And dealing with my tricky, tricky twin  sisters, Blanche and Edie.  And being myself.  Which, sometimes, is  harder than it sounds.

Whatever it is that you like to do, I hope you have a lot of fun.  And that you get to share your fun with family and friends 'cause  that rocks more than anything.

Check you later.
Your friend,

Tucker Dohr

Hey, it’s me again, Tucker Dohr!

Okay, school started. There’s just nothing we can do about that, but here’s something that could be cool:

I want to send a shout out to all of you who like to dance. Anybody—boys or girls. It could be in dance class, or around your room. It could be outside or inside. Send me a picture of yourself, in your PJs, in your jeans, in your dance clothes, in whatever you like to wear. You can dance or spin or twirl or flip and I'll post it on my web site! Be a friend of Tucker Dohr's! Get caught dancing!

Nutcracker PerformanceHere are my friends William and Milo caught dancing back stage at their Nutcracker Performance:

Or, here’s another idea.  Get caught reading!  Send a photo of yourself reading a book!

Can’t wait to see what you got.

Check you later,

Your pal, Tucker Dohr!


Hi, I'm Tucker Dohr. and I want to know where summer went. I CAN NOT believe that it's almost gone. I had three whole months to play, and now, suddenly, what, it's over? I was just getting started.

The good news is that when school starts, I will see ALL my friends. The bad news is that I've been staying up kinda late, and sleeping in kinda late. My Mom doesn't think that sleeping in to 7:35 is sleeping late at all. Her idea of sleeping late would be, oh, 9:30, 10:00. So she asked me why I stay awake so late, and then get up so early, and I told her, Mom, I'm a morning person, AND a night person. She laughed. Otherwise, she would cry. Because Blanche and Edie wake up at dawn like it was noon every day of their lives, which makes Mom want to nap early and often.

Me, I'd rather dance than nap. Napping is for babies. Dancing is for everyone!

Happy first day of school! Only 179 to go!

Check you later, friends.

Your pal,
Tucker Dohr
