My Mount Rushmore

The Real Mount Rushmore

Mount Rushmore National Memorial was designed by Gutzon Borglum. It was finished in 1941 and is near Keystone, South Dakota. On Mount Rushmore there are the faces of four former U.S. Presidents. They are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. If I could design my own Mount Rushmore I would have the faces of the following four people: Kendell Holthus, Amy Holthus, Dana Grenfell, and Jenny Finch.

My First Person: Kendell Holthus

The first person I would put on my Mount Rushmore would be Kendell Holthus, my dad. He should be on my Mount Rushmore because he has demonstrated to me some major life lessons. He has shown me good from bad and he has also shown me how to pray. My dad has also taught me how to ride a horse. We go horse riding every spring and summer. My dad has also taught me how to ride, saddle, and lead a horse! Those are the reasons why I want Kendell Holthus on my Mount Rushmore.

My Second Person: Amy Holthus

Amy Holthus, my mom, would be the second person I would put on my Mount Rushmore. My mom has taught me how to take care of myself and how to be kind to one another. My mom has shown and taught me how to take showers, to brush my teeth. and to brush my hair. She also reminds me of the rule, “ Treat others how you want to be treated.” My mom has also shown and taught me how to cook. The very first meal I made was macaroni and cheese. Those are some of the reasons I want my mom, Amy Holthus, on my Mount Rushmore.

My Third Person: Dana Grenfell

Dana Grenfell, one of my favorite babysitters, would be the third person I would add on my Mount Rushmore. Dana is special to me and should be on my Mount Rushmore, because my mom has had Dana take care of my sisters and I ever since I was three. Dana always babysat us until she went to college. One other reason Dana should be on my Mount Rushmore is she has taught me how to babysit kids. She has taught me how to entertain, discipline, and how to get things done with the kids. Those are just a few of the reasons Dana Grenfell should be on my Mount Rushmore.

My Fourth Person: Jenny Finch

The fourth and final person to be put on my Mount Rushmore would be Jenny Finch, she is a famous U.S.A. softball player. Jenny Finch has been my role model for a long time. Jenny has made me want to play softball more and more. Jenny Finch makes me feel like I can be the best softball player I can be. I want to grow up and win medals and trophies just like she did. That is why I want Jenny Finch to be the fourth and final person on my Mount Rushmore.

The Closing

In the end, I would again like to tell you the four people who would be on my Mount Rushmore. They are: Kendell Holthus, Amy Holthus, Dana Grenfell, and Jenny Finch. You might not ever see these people on a real Mount Rushmore, but I know I will treasure these people in my heart forever. That is why I chose those four people to be on my Mount Rushmore.
