First week of Eighth grade!

My first week of school was decent. Although nothing went wrong, it’s still school and I still have to wake up early. I haven’t had much homework, except studying for my Pre-ap reading and English tests, which I hope I did well on. The test was over our summer reading, “The Book Thief.” I really enjoyed the book and I’m glad it was a good book. Hopefully, this will be a good year!

My Passion

It was a normal day at dance, but as we stretched I could feel that it would be a very special day. We started turns in second, and I was pretty nervous because I wasn’t to good at them, but I  had been practicing them a lot. When I did my first  pirouette  I saw in the mirror that everything was precisely in line. My toes  pointed like the crescent moon on a dark, clear night. My arms opened in a perfect parallel to the floor. With every turn I could feel my smile getting broader and broader. My butterflies melted away like butter. As I pulled my leg into passe after my 16 turns I realized that dance was my passion. I also realized that if  you work hard enough at something you will succeed.


2013 and 2014

2013 has come to an end and I can’t believe it! I did so much in what  seemed like so little time!

2013 was a great year with many good and bad moments. One thing great that happened was getting back my Star grades. I was so nervous the day we got our grades back. I was shaking nervously  as my teacher handed me my paper, but as soon as I looked at my grades the nerves melted away like butter, and I couldn’t contain my excitement. Commended on all three tests! I was elated!  Another great moment of 2013 was my birthday. I woke up that morning feeling older and more mature. I went into the living room and my mom and I talked about how we could not believe that I was 11 already. Later we went over to my grandma’s house and swam and opened presents, and I had a great birthday. 2013 was also filled with not so great moments. My little brother and I were playing tag around the house. [never a good idea] I was running and there was a door halfway closed so I slammed it opened and and when I did, it hit the couch, bounced off , and hit my brother smack in the face! I heard his scream and I immediately  ran back him to find him gushing blood out of his eyebrow! My parents rushed him to the emergency room and founds out that he had to get stitches for the very first time!

   I also have many goals for 2014. Of coarse I want to pass fifth grade this year. A major goal I have this year is to be a lot more respectful to my parents. I get in a ton of fights with my older brother and I would really like to stop doing that. I would also like to do more algebra and read the rest of the” Left Behind” series.

  2013 was filled with ups and downs but all together it was a great year and I hope for another great one to come.

My Favorite Part

In the fourth grade we are reading the awesome series Paradise Called Texas, and Willow Creek Home.

In about 1845, a family in Germany had a chance to move to Texas for a low price, so Papa, Mama, and Mina set off on the Margaretha, the boat. Along the way they faced many different tragedies, catastraphies , and exitements.

My favorite part of the book is in ch. 19, Mina is merrily riding her horse with her indian friend, Amaya when all the sudden a Comanche captures Mina, so she tries to escape by spitting in his eyes, but just as her hands almost touch the ground he grabs her ankle so she has to go through a river splashing in her face, but finally she grabs a tree and escapes with raw hands and scrapes all over.

The Tale of Three Trees

There are three trees , and they all knew what they wanted to be when they grew up. Then they all got very sad when they found out that that’s not what they would be.Soon they found out that they got to hold the greatest treasure in the world.

I loved the book it has always been one of my favorite Christmas books ever. Every time I  read it, it makes me feel like I was in the book. My favorite part is in the end when it shows all of the trees on the hill.
