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

Trapping Cupid!


We have to trap cupid so we can have love in the Comox Valley! Today we had a valentine’s day breakout and once we broke and there were Lego pieces inside the box and we had to try to build a trap so we could catch cupid! We each got Lego pieces and a partner.

Are plan was to build a little box with only one opening then a piece of candy in the middle (so cupid would go in) .Then a door would close once Cupid goes inside so he will be trapped in side. We also put wheels on it so it would be portable and a red flag that is the love flag so cupid would know its safe and full of love.

We have a security camera so we know when cupid flies into the trap then the door will close and cupid will be trapped in the box so we can have all the love!

Thank you for reading my blog post please comment what you think would improve my cupid trap make sure to put your blog URL so I can visit your blog!

The Christmas Disaster!

Winter Snowflake Lights in Park Slope, Brooklyn Chris Goldberg via Compfight

It all started like this…

Billy is 9 and Taylor is 12 and they are Santa’s kids. Santa just hired two new elves to help  make the presents for Christmas but Billy and Taylor feel a little suspicious about them. Their names are Elif and his partner Fle. Billy tells Santa that he does not feel right about Elif and Fle “ Santa are you sure that Elif and Fle are right for the job”. “ Ho ho ho of course their right for the job!” But Taylor and Billy still weren’t convinced that Santa was right.

It was Christmas Eve when Taylor and Billy woke up and went out to the workshop. But there was nothing in the workshop. ”Billy where are all of the presents” Taylor said with worry in her voice. “I-I don’t know” Billy mumbled “maybe Santa and the elves already put them in the sleigh”. “Ya, let’s go check” Billy said with hope that the present were there. “Oh no!” they said in unison “Where are they!”. “Let’s go get Santa”. They both ran to Santa’s room “Santa! Santa! The presents are missing!” “What holy ginger snaps” Santa shouted . All of them go out and see all of the elves running rampantly around saying “Where are the presents?”. “Everyone calm down someone must have hidden them somewhere in this workshop” said Santa . Taylor and Billy look at each other and said ”Fle and Elif”. “Where are they?” Everyone looked around the room. “Ok everyone has to start making presents we only have twelve hours till I have to leave to deliver presents” Santa said trying to keep everyone calm. Everyone got to work with little whispers of what they think happened.

“See Santa now do you think that Elif and Fle did this” Taylor exclaimed proudly.” yes I do now, we need to find them I think we will call the elf police” explained Santa. “No we can find them please Santa you know you can trust us “Billy Begged.”I don’t know that might be dangerous I don’t know if you can handle it” Santa replied “of course we can handle it,  we’re not little anymore”  Taylor explained. “Ok but be careful”. To be continued…

My dog!

(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!

It’s was just a normal day!

It was just a normal day…

We were at school and we were doing math (data analysis to be specific). Then on the announcement it said, “Everyone, everyone! Lockdown! Lockdown! There is a zombie apocalypse!”

Everyone screamed in fright.  “Will we be ok?” I asked in shaking because I was so scared. My teacher assured me that we will be ok and that the scientists were finding an antidote.

We all scurried into the kiln room and called our parents. All are parent said that they will be ok and that we will to ok too. We all started to feel a little more safe now. Then I said, “hey are we just sitting here, we need to go fight the zombies!”.

We all got out of the kiln room and got stuff from our desks to protect us. We patrolled the school to make sure everyone else was ok. It had been one hour and we hadn’t  seen our teacher so we all went and looked for her. We found her in the computer lab making sure they still work

“You scared us,” we all said.

There was another announcement that we all have to hide and that the zombies had got into the school while we were talking to are teache. It had been 5 minutes and we heard banging on the door. We started to scream. The door slowly opened and it got very quiet. No one said a word. We saw a hand. But it was normal hand and then are principal slowly walked in but didn’t show her face.

“I thought you were a zombie,” I said with a sigh of relief. Then she turned around and we saw her face! It was green and look weird. Everyone ran out of the room and we locked her in the computer lab.

Our class looked out of the library and saw that everyone  was a zombie except are class. We were the only ones(That’s what we thought). We all got worried about are family.

””Quiet, the radio is on!” my teacher explained. “We are working on the antidote don’t worry, remain calm,” the radio announcer said with a bit of worrying in his voice.

A loud crash came from the other side of the room that was covered by shelves so we couldn’t see what happened.

“W-what was that? “my classmate said.

“I-I don’t know,”. Some silent went around.

“ARRRRHHHHHHH!” the zombie said.

“AHHHHHHHHHHHH!” we all said.

We ran away. I was the only one that ran into a back room that was in the library. I sat there and heard no voices that I recognised, only zombie noises. I peeked through the window and saw that I was the only one that was not a zombie. I sat there wondering if I was really the only one. Was I the only one who survived? Will I ever see my family or pets.

I heard laughing.

“Huh,” I said, confused. I looked out  the window of the door and saw my class laughing so hard. I unlocked the door.

“Hey w-was this a prank?”

“Yes!” my class said in unison.

“WHAT?” I said with anger in my voice. “B-but you scared me and how did you do that zombie look so well?”.

“Practice makes perfect, “my teacher said with a smile on her face. “Now let’s go and have a zombie party.”

We had an awesome party that was amazing. That was the best day ever.
