If you didn’t know already, I really like soccer. I have been playing soccer since I was 2 years old. It is my favorite sport followed by American football. Soccer is a very fun sport and it teaches me a lot of skills in life. Some are to communicate with other people and how to be aware of your surroundings. It also is a fun way to get outside and be active. I hope to see you give soccer a try.

On Thursday morning the sixth grade went on a trip to camp Hanes for one night. I was nervous when we stepped on the bus and began driving away. I had never been to a sleep away camp before. But when we got to the camp I knew it would be fun, I saw a waterslide, huge mountains, and a basketball court. All a sudden I was super excited, and knew it would be awesome.
One of my favorite parts of Camp Hanes were the activities. My favorite activity was probably the hike, the epic view at the top was worth the steep climb. Although the climb up was steep, it was fun doing it with my friends. After we got down the mountain we played a game called survival, it was girls vs boys to see which team could make a better fort out of sticks. Our counselor also brought a lighter, so each team got to make a mini fire. It was super fun!
I was proud that I slept overnight, I was super nervous and scared. But the stuff we did before bed made me a lot less scared. By the time it was time for bed I was not nervous at all. Camp Hanes was super fun and thank you for letting us come and giving us an awesome time!
Over the summer we read a book called Finding Someplace by Denise Lewis Patrick. The book was about a girl named Reesie. She and her parents lived in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. When Katrina struck her street both her parents were at work so she had to pack a survival backpack without help. She packed her parents’ important papers, her phone, and Mrs. Martine’s picture frame. She couldn’t get in touch with her parents and while leaving the city she stopped to help a neighbor, Mrs. Martine, an elderly woman. She got caught in her house with her. Then Reesie had to escape with her backpack.
If a hurricane was to hit Durham, these are things I would pack in my backpack. First, I would grab a phone for communication and checking the news. I would need a flashlight in case the power goes out and I need light. I would also pack a change of clothe and shoes in case I get lost and my other clothes are dirty. I would also pack money so I can buy food and a water bottle so I can have water. Next, I would pack an umbrella in case it rains really hard, I can go outside to get from place to place and a blanket in case it is cold. The last thing I would pack would be my Worlds Futsal second place medal because it is probably my favorite thing I own. These are the things I would pack in my backpack in case of an emergency.
