Christmas is my favorite holiday. I like it because there is time to spend with our families, presents, stories and Christmas cheer. We also don’t have school for three weeks. Sometimes I spend Christmas with my dad in Houston. Other times I stay in Austin with my Mom and step dad. This Christmas I want a MacBook Air.
I am from iPhones,
from toy trains and big stairs,
I am from the old wood floors,
the smell of mom’s cooking,
I am from the Bonsai,
the old oak tree whose branches still remain,
I’m from Christmas with family and big vacations,
from mom and dad,
I’m from healthy food and Easter and from laughing,
I’m from stories and go to sleep and never give up,
I’m from game nights,
I’m from Alaska and Philippines,
rice and moose,
from Grandpa in WWII,
brave and smart,
under my bed.
I think that having iPads at West ridge is a great idea. Although it might be distracting sometimes, they can be useful in many class projects or just for studying on quizlet. I also like having iPads so that I can play fun games from the AppStore. One of my favorite games right now is Real Steel-WRB.
I just got the new Assassin’s Creed game for the Xbox on Tuesday and it is awesome. I play it a lot and I love doing the missions. You start out as a pirate who’s ship got destroyed in a battle. Then you find a new ship and sail elsewhere while completing multiple tasks. The cool thing about the game is that almost everything that happened in the game actually happened in real life.
My favorite ride at six flags was the Iron Rattler. It has a 171 foot drop and is made with wood instead of iron so that it rattles when you go on it.
This weekend I went to Six Flags in San Antonio for Lake’s birthday party. It was really fun and afterwards we went and had dinner at Papasitos.
Last weekend I went to the rope swing across the lake at my house. It is very fun and I can even do a backflip. Usually me and my friends go on one of our kayaks. Behind the rope swing there is a small cave and sometimes we go there after swinging for a while.
Last year at celebration West ridge it was freezing cold but it was lots of fun. My favorite thing to do was climb up on the rock wall.
In the house,
Over the stairs,
Around the corner,
Behind the doors,
Between the drawers,
Next to the cat,
Under a pile of papers,
Lies a key
The Mystery Key
In Texas history we have been learning about longitude and latitude lines and how to read coordinates.
