Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday!

Winter by Madison


Brrrrrr! Itś so cold outside I wonder what I could do? Well I guess I could do something like go ice skating! I think that sounds fun but I wonder where I am going to go ice skating at! I got the best idea . . . I can go to Cass park!

WOW, that was so fun! But what am I going to do now?

I got another idea. . . I can go sledding at Rice hill! But again, I am going to be bored if I don’t do something.

Oh I got it, I could build a snowman! Hang on, let me go get a scarf, maybe a hat, and I will go get a carrot for his nose and some rocks for buttons!

Building a snowman and building was fun. Going sledding was great too! Now all I need is some hot cocoa and a GOOD night’s sleep.

The Dream

Once there was a kid named Billy , he lived at a beautiful beach in florida.He had a dog named bella. He loved taking walks with his sister Julia.

Monday, August 12, 2016

  • One day Billy took a walk with his sister, Julia. They had the best time ever! On there way back home they got ice cream , I got vanilla Julia got strawberry. ”This was so fun we should do this again!” Julia said. “yeah definitely that sounds like a lot of fun!” i replied. Then it started to get dark so we headed home. We ate pepperoni pizza on the porch. Then we went to bed. The next morning we swam far out in the ocean it was so fun. Then we went back home. Then it was night and we went to bed. SWOOSH a wave smashed my window. WHIRL breeze of wind came through. SMASH the water smash through my whole wall. Then I ran to get mom and Julia “mom Julia!” He Screamed. Mom told us to go on the roof because it is better to get on a high place. The waves got bigger and bigger the wind almost knocked me down. I grasped on the edge of the roof. Mom pulled me up. Julia and I were very frightened. “OH NO where is bella” He said. Did she get washed away? Is she still in the house? Then the waves got a little smaller the wind stopped. Is it over? Then he realized it was safe in his house he checked the time it was 8:00 in the morning. He was so glad he was safe with his family in florida! It was just a dream.

Head over Heals Gymnastics By Amelia

"Head Over Heals" gymnastics is a very fun place to go if you are planning to go to gymnastics. All the teachers are awesome,nice,and very good at teaching.

You can do vault, beam, floor, bars,and sometimes trampoline and tumble track. On vault you do lots of things like handstands and handstand flat backs. We also jump on the spring boards. Another thing we do is the balance beam. On the beam we do handstands and cartwheels. Head Over Heels gymnastics is a great place.
