Stranded on an Island

It was a beautiful, warm summer day and Cecilia called up her friends and asked them to take a boat ride on the ship with Captain Jake. Captain Jake was Cecilia's uncle.  Most of her friends wanted to came on a boat ride. So when everyone arrived, they started sailing. They got to the middle of the ocean eating junk food and Cecilia said, "I am going to run to the bathroom."  Really she didn't have to go to the bathroom, she really wanted to go see the animals in the ocean. When she looked around she saw a dolphin. So Cecilia couldn't take it anymore she, had to jump in and get the dolphin. So that's what she did, she jumped in and rode on the slippery grayish dolphin. Her friends and Captain Jake did not realize, so they kept on going. And yes after the boat left the area she was lost. Cecilia did not know the boat had left. After about an hour Cecilia said, my friend I have to get back on my boat my friends think that I am going to the bathroom. So she left. Cecilia looked and looked and looked, but she could not find them. By the end of the day Cecilia was so tired. The closest place there was about a mile away.  She swam the mile and by the time she got there she was so tired that she found a sunny spot and went to bed. When she finally woke up she saw a girl starring at her, at first Cecilia thought did someone come and rescue me? The girl that was standing beside her asked "What's your name?" and Cecilia said, "My name is Cecilia. What's your name" The girl said" My name is Briley and it's nice to meet you?" Cecilia wanted to call for the dolphin but she could not because she did not have a name for her. Luckly, the dolphin came back to the island. Cecilia said "If I ever need you I will call your name and your name is Sailor." Sailor must have heard what she said because she made a sound. That made Cecilia feel super loved and special. Cecilia hopped on Sailor's back and said let's take and adventure. Sailor took Cecilia under water. Once they were about 5 feet deep she said "but wait can we have one more person on your back?" And guess what Sailor said "Sure I would love to have one more person on my back." They got back to the island and Cecilia asked Briley do you want to take a serious adventure, it will be super fun and we can get some food. Briley said are you sure you have enough room and if you do I would love to take an adventure with you. That is what they did. Once they got back to shore it was getting darker, the two girls worked together to start a fire. Sailor stayed in that area with them all night. Once they woke up it was about nine o-clock. They caught some fish with the help of each other and Sailor. Over time they became best friends. On a daily basis they would wake up and go fish. Today was different because they found a turtle. It was a sea turtle. They named him Nolan. And a couple days later the girls woke up and found eggs from the turtle. Some of the eggs had no turtles in them so they got to eat them. They were so tired of eating fish because they ate it every day. Once they had one bite of that egg they felt like having a dance party because that taste fit their craving. Luckly half of the eggs had nothing in the so they had enough eggs for about a week. They were so happy. Once they ran out of eggs they had to find a different kind of food because they were so tired of fish. Fish was the last thing on the list on what they wanted to eat. So Sailor took them both on an adventure to find food, they looked all afternoon and no luck. So Briley had and idea, her idea was to look for more turtle eggs tomorrow morning at dawn. Cecilia thought it was a great idea. Cecilia mumbled to herself how stupid of me that I could not think of that idea. So the next day that's what they did. Right before dawn they woke up and got to the shore of the beach and looked for eggs. With the work together they found about fifteen eggs. Once they got about that many eggs, the girls went back to the island that their staying at and went back to sleep. Once they woke up it was about ten o-clock. After they were all alert they took the most amazing trip in their hole trip being alone. Briley most not have been sleeping that long because when Cecilia woke up she told her you want to know what I just saw, Cecilia didn't even have time to answer because right away Briley started telling what she saw. This is what she said, when you fell asleep I was still awake and I started hearing this strange sound and I started thinking about it and I found out it was a blue whale. So I walked to the end of the island and guess what I saw, I saw this baby Blue Whale. It was so cute! I fell in love at the first moment I saw it. I was so close to taking it to this island. But I didn't because I knew it was the right thing. So I talked to her and I named her Breil Ava. Do you think it's a cute name Briley asked Cecilia. And then I came back and took a nap. So Sailor took them to the spot and they saw that blue whale but she didn't see them so Briley called her name and she turned around and she saw him. So Briley told her to follow us. So she did. And once we got  back to the island we fed her and played with Sailor, Nolan and now Breill Ava.  And after a while Cecilia noticed how thirsty she was because she had not drank in like... weeks. So she had no choice but to drink out of the very salty water. So she did and that night she did not feel to well so she had to come up with an idea. So she told Briley what happened and again came up with an idea to get water by swimming until we get to shore and there is a drinking fountain up there. So the next day they swam that five mile and drank for about an hour of and on and swam just around the shallow past for a while playing mermaids. They swam back and the day wore them out. So they were like you know what let's just go to bed. So they found a worm spot and went to bed. When they woke up they saw this huge boat about a mile away and they thought that must just be a cruise ship. So about an hour later the cruise ship stopped on that island. A man with a nice looking outfit came out and said "Are your guys names Briley and Cecilia?" The girls had to say yes. So the man said come on girls we have to take you home. The girls hopped on the boat and had a conversation with the man. His name Justin. He was very nice to the girls. So once they reached land the girls SCREAMED were home. So Justin them took them home in a limo. When they got home Cecilia said " Dad I missed you and I love you.  Cecilia called all her friends and said I miss you and I'm glad I'm back home. So the next day Cecilia came to school and everyone missed her. Even her teacher that was super careless! And I guess that's how I have to end my story!

Thanksgiving Day

On a cold Thanksgiving Morning I was driving to Bethany Mo. to go see my grandma.  When we were crossing the border I could tell my mom was turning off the air conditioner because it was not to cold outside. Once I got there, a bunch of my family was already there. I caught up with my family until lunch was ready. Then it was time for our feast. We had golden brown Turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, noodles, ham and cranberry's. It was delicious. Once everyone was done we had  dessert. I had chocolate pie and this angel food cake with pudding and strawberries. I was stuffed. Then I played games and ate bits of food. On Thursday night we went black Friday shopping for a while. Then when we came back to my grandma's, we watched some Family Feud. Then I had to go to bed. On Friday morning I woke up and watched a show. Then I ate breakfast. Then family started coming. And then this girl named Journey and her mom Shawn came. Once we were done eating leftovers, I painted Journey's nails. Then she had to go and that's when we started smelling this burning smell.  So we called this guy named Dan and we found out the smell was coming from the hot water heater. So we took the water heater out. Then our cousins Bryson, Joe and Logan came. I played with them until about three o-clock. Then there mm Amy brought her [thirty-one] bags in and my mom bought me a daisy print bag. Then I had supper. We had deer meat that my aunt Carey made. Then we hung out until about ten. Then I went to bed. On Saturday morning I crochet a dish cloth and then I started reading a book called the Rock stars Daughter. Then I had Cinnamon Toast Crunch for breakfast. It was sweet and sugary. Then I went and bought some Christmas presents. I ate some lunch and then I had to head on home. When I got home, I put up Christmas decorations and my elf on the shelf came. That's what I did over Thanksgiving break. It was a blast to see my mom's family!

My Favorite Place

My favorite place is Sky Zone. Sky Zone is a place where you can come and enjoy a family trip wile jumping on trampolines. There are like fife different things you can do while jumping on trampolines . The different things are a dodge ball court , foam pit, basketball, just jumping and younger kids area for dodge ball. When you're there they play music but all you can hear is people screaming. When I'm there jumping I feel like I'm in my own world with a bunch a weird people. This place is in Des Moines in a huge building. When you just get there it smells like rubber but after a while you get used to it. The reason why I love this place is because you can just have a time of your life and get exercise at the same time. I hope you try to go to Sky Zone sometime. It's a blast!

The Sign of the Beaver

                                                               
                                                                            Day 1
Day one was about a boy names Matt who is to live by himself for seven weeks and is to watch over the corn fields. So he is trying to learn to survive by himself. Matt and his dad built a cabin and Maine. How he kept track of the days was cutting of notches and put them on sticks. He could put seven notches on a stick and that represented a week. His dad left him with a rifle and a watch. The rifle was for keeping himself save and to pass time. He also had to learn to get his own food. He also thought to himself actually I like staying at home by myself.Someone said to him don't waste you gun powder because if you do you will not have enough for the hole seven weeks.
                                                                        Day 2
Day two was about a stranger coming and Matt let the stranger in the cabin. The stranger asked a lot of questions. The stranger was talking about what he did with the Native Americans. Matt was worried that maybe he was a murder or something like that. Matt also wondered why he was in a rush. Matt went to sleep and when he woke up his dad's rifle was gone. He also was trying to find his own food and then he see's the door swing open. He dropped all his stuff and ran  to his cabin. He thinks it might be a stranger and then he thought the stranger would not do that so he thought it might be a Native American or maybe a bear. Matt was so hungry so he went to a bee hive. Matt pick off a piece of honey and and ate it. Matt got stung by bee's a couple times. Then he fell in water and started drowning and he felt unconscious and an native american came and picked him up like a baby. A Native American took Matt to his house and Matt felt alone because the Native American left then the Native American came back and gave Matt bitter medicine. Then luckily fell asleep.
                                                                 Day 3
Day 3 is about Matt got treated with moccasins and Matt was going to trade the Native American back with a book but the Native American but the Native American did not take it because he could not read.The Native American said if you teach me how to read that will be my gift from you. So Matt decided to teach the Native American the A,B,C's and Matt god super tired of teaching the Native American because it might take Matt a year for him to teach the Native American the A,B,C's.
                                                                 Day 4
Day 4 is about Matt telling Attean the story of the gut who fell of the ship and saved his own life. It was also about the white boy telling Attean the story of the canoe and Attean got mad and said he would never be his slave. The last chapter we read was about Matt trying to catch fish and when a fish bit his hook the hook broke so Attean made him a new hook and the was the first time Matt saw Attean smile.

The Time I Learned How To Do A Cartwheel

I am going to tell you to how I learned to do a cartwheel. A cartwheel is a like make a star with your body and turn your body at the same time. I always want to learn how to do a cartwheel and finally my dream came true. How to do a cartwheel. My mom actually taught me how to do a cartwheel. I kept trying til I did it. I was about 4 years old. I learned in my back yard and I still practice today. So if you have a dream and you want to get to that dream than work for it. It is a great dream and I hope you can reach you dream.

Camping at Hidden Acres

   Have you ever been to Hidden Acres Christian Center?  Well, if not it is a blast and you should join the party. It was a journey of my lifetime and I will be going back next year.
    When we got in the car I was kind of nervous and excited at the same time.I was more excited than than nervous. When I got there one of my counselor Randellyn took me to my cabin. My cabin number was ten.  My counselors names are Crystal, Randellyn and Faith. 
    Once everyone arrived to camp we went and ate supper.  For supper we had hot dogs, cookies, veggies and fruit. Then, after supper we talked about rules and got to know each other. Sadly, after that we had to go to bed.
    In the morning we got up and ready. Then we went to eat breakfast. After breakfast we went to chapel.  We learned a lot at chapel.  Then it was lunch. Lunch was delicious! Then it was free time.  In free time we went to the tower. The tower is a zip line, a rock tower and a giant swing.  My favorite thing at the tower is the giant red swing. Then it was probably about dinner time.  After dinner we played a game.  Chapel was next.  Then we got showered up and went to bed.
     At seven o clock we got up and ready. After we were all ready we got up we went to breakfast.  Breakfast was a fun time to talk with my friends.  Then it was devotion time.  That's when we talk about God with just our cabin.  After we got our picture done. Then it was chapel.  Chapel is the best time at camp.
Then it was time at our cabin. Then it was lunch.  In my free time I went to the tower with my friends Nora, Emeny and Chloe. I went on the zip line and walked back with mud socks.  We invented mud socks. Mud socks are when you step in mud and it looks like you have brown socks on. After we were done at the tower we went back to our cabin. We went to supper then we had chapel. After chapel we played bonkers.  Then we got showered and up and went to bed.
     When we woke up we got ready and we ate breakfast like normal.Then we went to chapel. After chapel we had devotions. Then we went back to our cabin. After that we went to lunch. Lunch was good. After lunch we went to the lake. At the lake we swam, went boating, blobbed each other and went rope swinging. It was a blast. And that was like our day every day. 
             The End

Big Island Rendezvous!

In October us fourth graders went to Albert Lee, Minnesota, to visit Big, Island, Rendezvous. It was a blast.  It was totally worth the drive! Have you ever been there?
      First, when I got there we just looked around. Then, we went to our first station. Our first station was the wooden tool maker. He showed us how to make handles for hammers. He told us the tools he uses to make the handle of the hammer. It was very interesting. It's cool how he could make a tool that could help us.  After his station was done our class, went to the flute maker.
       The first step to make a flute was to chop down a Mopane tree.  Then he would dig out the middle of the tree.  After he was done with that he would shave off the bark of the tree.  The last step was to make the holes in flute. And then you are done.  The guy was also very talented at playing the flute.  The reason I say that is because he played some songs for us.  Next we went to the silversmith.
       Personally, I really did not find him that interesting but he was very good at working with silver. His jewelry was very interesting to look at.
        Finally, it was time to eat. We got to relax our legs while eating. My legs hurt from walking and standing all morning. Even though walking hurt my legs it was a nice exercise.  After my mom, Chloe and I were done eating we went SHOPPING!  I bought a turtle ring, rock candy and a necklace. Shopping is one of my favorite thing but the bad part was the smell.  It smelled horrible but overall shopping was a blast! After our free time we went to the medicine lady.
        She was my favorite station by far because I learned about one of my dreams to become a nurse or doctor. (And mostly about our skin and I dream to be a dermatologist) What I think was cool that she taught me how to make lotion, cream for burns and what to do if you had a sore throat.{If I lived in that time I would be a medicine lady}
          Our last station was the blacksmith. He made this hanger type thing with very hot fire and metal. It was very cool. Plus he had a huge air pedal that made the fire. He was very phenomenal!
          Overall us fourth graders had a fantastic time.  I hope in your free time you choose to go to Big Island Rendezvous!

Cheerleading!!!

        
                   Cheerleading!!!!
I do cheer.  It’s very fun.  But it takes a loud voice so loud that you pretty much have to yell.  My cheer coach is Sierra Gustofun.  We practice Tuesday and Thursday from  p.m. to 7 p.m.  It takes a lot of practice to get the cheer, chant or dance down.  Would you put the effort into cheer?  I do.  I cheer every Sunday for two games. It’s a huge commitment. It takes up the whole Sunday afternoon.  We have a dance to the song Appaulas by Lady Gaga.  Altogether we have probably learned twenty five different cheers or chants.  My favorite cheer is roll it shake it.  It goes like this.  Roll it shake it victory let’s take it.  I also like the greeting cheer. It goes like this.  Jump in jump out introduce yourself.My name is Alivia ya. I’m a lion yas.  I’m a cheerleader ya. And I like to shimmy alright alright alright.  We normally do that before our games.  We all travel to different games.  Personally my favorite chant is L-I-O-N-S clap clap clap. Cheer is fun because you can cheer on the boys to get them to have good attitude about about them even if they lost the game.  In cheer you get a uniform, pom-poms, hair bows and if you want cheer shoes.  Cheerleading is an awesome exercise.  If you get bored easily than you would probably get a little bored of just standing there and watching the game.  The hardest part of cheering are the push-ups.  We practice in the field by the middle school.  I love to do stunts, baskets, and thigh stands.  It looks phenomenal after you can do it perfectly.  My team colors are black, gold and  little white.  My cheer uniform is a yellow t-shirt, black shorts and a huge white bow.  Cheering takes a lot of time and effort and you need to keep saying positive things to yourself.  In my cheer squad every time we don’t listen or say I can’t do this.  We have to do ten v-ups.  {Which is very hard and takes a lot of practice}  So if you have never tried cheer lessons.  Try it now !!! It’s a blast!!!

Cheerleading

I do cheer.  It's very fun.  My cheer coach is Sierra Gustafson.  We practice Tuesday and Thursday  from 6  p.m.  to 7 p.m.  It takes a lot of practice to get the cheer, chant or dance down. I cheer every Sunday for 2 games.  It takes the whole Sunday afternoon.  We have a dance to the song applause by Lady Gaga.  We have probably learned about 25 cheers or chants.  My favorite cheer is roll it shake it. I also like the greeting cheer. It goes like this jump in jump out introduce yourself my name is Alivia ya and I'm a lion ya I'm a cheerleader ya and I like to shimmy alright alright alright. We normally do that before a game. We travel to different towns. Personally my favorite chant is L-I-O-N-S clap clap clap. Cheer is good and fun because you can cheer on the boy to get them to have a good attitude even if they lost the game. In cheer you get a uniform, pop-poms, hair bows and if you want maybe cheer shoes. Cheer leading can get a little boring when you have to just stand there and watch. The other things I don't like are push ups after touchdowns. I love to do stunts and thigh stands and baskets. My team colors are black, gold and a little white. Cheering takes a lot of effort and you need to keep saying postive things to yourself. In my cheer squad every time we don't listen or say I can't do this we have to do 10 v-ups. {wicth is very hard and takes a lot of enegry} So if you have never cheered try it out. IT'S A BLAST!!!!!!!!!

My favorite question!


My favorite question was what is your favorite kind of ice cream.If had to choose it would be mint chocolate chip.

I absolutely love mint chocolate chip because it has a great texture and the chocolate likes melts in your mouth.  But thats if I had to choose.  I love sorbet, chocolate, cake batter,  sherbert and
gold rush.  If I could I would eat ice cream every day and every meal.  It’s delicious.  Ice cream  is
one of my favorite treat because of it’s texture and as I’ve  said it’s so creamy that it just melts in
your mouth.  One of my favorite ice cream places are Cherry Berry, Orange Leaf, Aspen leaf and Lemon Tree.  Thats my story about ice cream!
