Descriptive Writing

The flag card reminds me of labor day when my family and I went to my mom’s co-worker’s cottage and hung out with her family. We went to a kids day festival and played games, won raffles, and ate lunch. After that we went swimming in some refreshing lake water. After kayaking we went back to the trailer and hung out with baby Ryan and Tanner the dog. We also husked tiny worm infested corn for dinner… weird and gross. Anyway we ate dinner and after that the kids and Chuck (Chuck is my mom’s co-worker’s husband) enjoyed some peace and quiet, comics and tv while the rest of the group went to buy some jerky. So tons of fun on labor day, sadly it had to end but it was totally fun! 🙂

The suitcase card reminds me of when me and my extended family went to Zehnder’s Splash Village for my grandparents’ anniversary. It was a blast, we were in the waterpark at 9:00am till’ 10:00pm most of the time. The drop slide was like its name, it counts down; 3…2…1…LAUNCH…(3 sec. wait) and you drop down about 20 ft. until you get to the slide part and that takes about 5 sec. and if you are like my dad then you come out and… tidal wave! But if you’re like me… you’re like a needle… no splash. The family slide is a four person slide that takes you down through a turning twisting mess of fun! I went on these slides I could go down… about 100 more times, the drop slide never gets old, and the family slide… you can’t help but scream, laugh, or smile, also get wet! This trip was so fun!

The suitcase also reminds me of when I went to Cran-Hill Ranch with my friend Brooklyn. We were waiting to do worship time and were with our “adopted counselor” Anna. The snack was orange slices and I had told Anna and Brooklyn that I didn’t like oranges. There were tons of oranges so we were allowed to get seconds. Anna got a second orange and started chasing me with it. I panicked and ran away, I started to turn around and could feel Anna getting closer, I also saw Brooklyn in front of me blocking my path. Brooklyn tackled me, so I covered my mouth right away. She now was on top of me and I was fighting to cover my mouth. Brooklyn got my hand off my mouth and attempted to squirt orange juice into my mouth but instead got it all over my face. I was not happy after, my face was all sticky… thankfully the orange juice tasted good. I didn’t tell anyone though… I didn’t want to get tackled again. 🙂

Theme Writing

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
I feel like as an 8th grade this verse makes me feel like a stronger leader. I also feel like as a Christian the foundation I have at school will help me in my faith. This verse to me is a great foundation start for my faith as a Christian and for being a leader as an 8th grader at ZCS.

As an 8th grader at ZCS this verse is saying to have a good foundation on God so you will start off with a strong foundation for your faith. I also think it’s saying to have a strong foundation to be a good leader and example for the younger grades at school. Right now we might not be have the perfect foundation to be a good example because we haven’t really been at the top, so we might have only a little foundation in leading others. As we learn to lead others our foundation in that will get stronger. I think we should all try our best to get the best foundation we can on God so we can have a good structure on God for if we go to a public school or even if we go to a christian school. But just having a good foundation in God will give us a good starting point on our faith path.

As a Christian in the world the foundation we get from going to a christian school will give us a great foundation to our faith. There are lots of things to give us a foundation; (Church, youth group, ZCS, others, your parents…). Being a Christian and going to a public high school could be ruff but if you have a strong starting foundation in Him you will have an easier time dealing with harder things. The starting foundation you get from school or from your parents can affect your high school foundation, whether it’s in God or not. I think it’s important to have a strong starting foundation in Christ so you might follow Him forever.

This verse to me is a great foundation start for my faith as a Christian and for being a leader as an 8th grader at ZCS. I want to let you know that I think you should have a good foundation in leadership for 8th grade and have a strong foundation in Christ so you can live your life knowing what He has done for us all.

What I did this Summer :)

This summer Me and my dad’s side of the family went to Zhender’s Splash Village to celebrate my grandparents 50th anniversary. It was very fun, we went down lots of water slides. One of the slides were a drop slide where you dropped down 20 ft and then went down the rest of the slide. I also went camping in Canada this summer witch was really fun! We went fishing and boating. That was really fun also! 🙂

New Addition

I really like the new addition cause it has a lot of new things. The new windows and doors for the classrooms are really cool. Also I like the new atmosphere, like we can go and work as we please and have a nice change to things. I like the mixing of homeroom classes. I also enjoy the new work areas. I am glad that we can have the privilege of being in the new addition for our last year here. 🙂
