Basketball

Hello everyone,

Thank you for visiting my blog! My season of basketball has just ended. I do basketball at my school on the grade 6-7 girls basketball team. Today we played the boys and we ended up losing but we were close were pretty sure the score was 6-10.

My favorite basketball drill is called King of the Court. It’s were you all go in a area with cone or lines and dribble the ball while you try to knock the ball away from other people. If you get your all knocked away your out. While you are out you can go practice shooting or dribbling. You could also play were if you get the ball knocked away you have to do 5 push ups or something similar then your back in the game.

Another drill I like if were you go up against the wall and throw the basketball against the wall and catch it in one hand. Your elbow is near your ear. You can switch hand after ever 10 throws.

I really enjoy playing basketball and I will definitely play next year in high school. Do you play any sport? Make sure to comment and leave your blog URL so I cant visit  and comment on your blog. I hope you have an awesome day bye!

Where I Live!

Hello everyone,

Beautiful British Columbia, more like  beautiful Comox Valley. The Comox Valley is so pretty and if you like snow, rain, hail, thunder, wind and sun you would love it here. One day it will be sunny and beautiful the next it will be snowing, and I’m not kidding! I’m so lucky I live here.

Some of my favorite places to go are:

 

Chimo gymnastics is the perfect spot for a hard-working gymnast. You can sign up for a class or just go for a drop-in on Wednesdays. In Chimo you can learn all levels of gymnastics. When ever I go there I am so excited to start working on achieving my gymnastic goals. Every year they host a gymnastic meet where any competing gymnast can compete in. They call it the PJ meet were you wear your pajamas to the meet and wear your leotard under them. I’ve learned a lot from them and I hope if you go you will have the same experience.

Kin beach is one of my favorite places to go camping with my family. It’s so nice there and it’s right on the beach which is awesome. If it’s really hot when your camping you could go the where you check in and buy yourself a ice cream bar. They also have a park >>were anyone can go play and  a tennis court so if is you ever go there make sure to bring a tennis ball and racket. If you want to have a potluck or just a dinner with some people you can rent a under cover grilling area. Another thing I love about it is that you don’t have to go camping to go to  Kin beach if you want to go for a day there is a parking area and a bunch of picnic tables. If you ever go camping there, tell me about your adventures!

Bill Moore memorial park has several different things for different sports teams to do. But I am talking about the baseball field. Now baseball is a pretty big thing in my life even though I don’t play it. My Mom Dad and Brother do it though so I spend a lot of time there. Since my brother has played baseball for so long he’s gotten quite good so he’s on teams that travel all over the place. So if both my parents go most of the time I do to. This is one of the fields he plays at our are home field. I<<< also has  batting cage right beside it so when they are practicing they practice batting.

Those were some of my favorite places where I live. What are some of your favorite places were you live? Make sure to comment and leave your blog URL so I can comment on your blog. I hope you have  a great day bye!

My camp experience!

(me doing the Leap of Faith)

I loved jumping off a 30-foot pole! Camp was amazing I know I will remember it for the rest of my life. At camp there were so many activities to do like the Leap of Faith, Giants Ladder, Possum Log, Burma Bridge kayaking, and a hike. The Leap of Faith is were you climb up a big pole that have staples in it so it easy to climb then stand on the top of the pole and jump off then try to catch a trapeze. If you catch the trapeze try to do a pull up because all the Adrenalin you will probably do one. The Giants Ladder is were you have a partner and you try to climb up a really big ladder that the logs are far apart. The Possum Log is were you climb up a cargo net then try to get on a log once you get on the log you can rather walk or scooch across to a tree named dug then you high five hug or kiss him then you lay down on the log and hang upside-down then let go. The Burma Bridge  is were you climb up a tree then you walk across some wire to go hug dug give him a high five or kiss him.

I learn so many lesson at camp like, to take risk because you will be happy that you did after words like when I jumped off of the Leap of Faith or when I walked across the Possum Log. But you don’t have to Take a risk by doing anything outside your comfort zone or just taking a risk.

If you go to an outside camp you should know, there’s going to be bugs! You shouldn’t always kill because some of them help you like spider they eat bug so there won’t always be bug in your cabin. Maybe kill them if there right above your bed though. A lot of people don’t like bug so you should respect that (unless they really over react)

Get sleep when you’re at camp so you have energy for all the cool things you’re going to do. Remember to bring warm and dry clothes for the night so you won’t be freezing all night. Wear warm dry sock and maybe even hoodie. If you’re in a cabin or something with other people don’t talk because you might keep other people awake so they will be tired. Make sure you don’t stay up the whole night because you might be grumpy in the morning.

Going to camp was really fun and I will remember this for the rest of my life! I am so thank full for everyone that help organize or arrange camp. I also am thankful for everyone that works at camp there all so nice.  I will remember all of the lessons. Camp rocks!

Gymnastics!

Shawn Johnson Olympics VaultHi everyone,

Gymnastic is my favorite sport in the whole world! My favorite events (if you don’t know what an event is, it’s bars, beam, floor and vault) are floor or beam, I can’t decide. But then it’s vault, and then bar because bars are my least favorite event and I’m not very good at them either.

My favorite gymnast is Simone Biles. If you don’t know who she is, she is an Olympic gold medalist from the USA who competed in the Rio 2016 Olympics. My other favorite gymnast is Shawn Johnson who is also an Olympic medalist.

I love to do gymnastics on my trampoline in my backyard. One of my favorite things in my gym is the bar pit which is were there’s a bar over the foam pit. It’s  funny because I don’t really like bars, but I think the bar over the pit is so fun.

I also love the tumble track which is a really long trampoline. My favorite thing to do on it is hurdle round offs. The hardest skill that I can do are a round off with no hands on the trampoline, a back handspring (I can do but I’m always scared to go back), or a cartwheel on the beam.

My dream skill is a round off back handspring on the floor. My least favorite skill to do is a back roll on the the beam because it hurts.

My favorite gymnastic quote is,

Don’t practice till you get it right, practice till you can’t get it wrong.

– Shawn Johnson

Thank you guys so much for reading my new blog post and comment if you can do any gymnastic skills! Remember to leave your blog URL.

Bye!

My dog!

p1100539

(This is my dog with her carrot)

Hi everyone,

My dog is so cute! Her ears are so fluffy and funny that if you put them up then she sort of looks like a bunny. Her name is Rosie. She is a Schnauzer Papillion and she’s the cutest dog in the world, I think. Her favorite thing to do is go on walk, but we have to spell it out (w-a-l-k) because if we say it or she will get really excited. She also loves belly rubs, attention, and eating carrots and pepperoni.

I love to pet her in the morning because if I stop she will put her nose under my arm so I will pet her more. She barks at everything that goes past my house even sometimes at nothing. Rosie is so hyper. If I have a friend over she has to jump on them or anyone who comes into our house. Even us if we’re gone more than five minutes.

Rosie sleeps in a crate that my dad made. Its under a counter and it’s pretty big. It’s sorta her safe place like if we’re not home sometimes she will be in there.

When I walk home I see her in the window because she loves it in the window it her favorite spot . She also loves to go on my

mom and dad’s bed. She will always bark when she sees me on the road. It’s so cute.

It’s so funny when Rosie stays in the same spot for a long time with her head on the ground  because it shapes into where she was sitting or lying. I think that my dog is the cutest dog in the WORLD!

Do you have a dog? Ifs so what kind of dog? If you don’t what kind of animal do you have?

Thanks for reading my post and I hope you have a great day!

Emergency preparedness kit!

Electrical TsunamiCreative Commons License fdecomite via Compfight

Hi everyone,

Think, if a natural or non natural disaster happened in the middle of the night what would you do? We have been talking about disasters and we have to write a post about what we would put in an emergency kit for your bedside table. Things I would put in would be

A flashlight so if it’s dark and we have to go outside so we can see.

I would also bring a couple of band aid so if me or anyone else gets hurt I can help them.

Some granola bars (or food that won’t go bad) and some water if you have to stay outside or somewhere else for a long time.  

A pocket knife so you can cut stuff (if you need to) or mark here you are so if you get lost (like if you’re in the forest or something like that).

Something that make you warm like a pocket warmer or something like that.

Maybe a radio(like the ones you crank so it last forever) so you can keep updated from what has happened.

What would you put in your emergency kit? Leave it in the comments(make sure to leave your blog URL I can visit your blog) and don’t forget to have an awesome day!
