In this blog post, I will talk about baseball. I love baseball and I have been playing for almost my whole  life. This is why I think you should play baseball.

The first reason why you should play baseball is that is is very fun and you will meet all types of new people from different teams. Baseball is fun because you get to try out the different positions and you get to bat. In the photo above that is me batting. Another fun thing about baseball is that it can be very hard or easy. For an example, you can be facing a pitcher that can throw very fast and hard or you can be playing a team with bad hitting or bad fielding but regardless of who you play, always try your best to win.

I play for the Carolina Rattlers and all of my teammate are very nice and supportive of each other. You should always be supportive to your teammates. I have been playing for most all my life and it is my main sport. I play other sports too but baseball is my top favorite. I play tournaments mostly on the weekends all over the state/county.

Wisdom Tail Comic

In 6th grade Language Arts, we did a project about a wisdom tale. We could do different things not just a comic but the choices were: a comic, a rap/song, poem, and stop motion.

I worked with my partner, Branden. We chose to do a comic as you can see above. It was very fun to draw the people and come up with words the characters were going to say. The wisdom tale was about two friends that got tricked by the man with a red and blue coat. The man asked the kids what color his coat was. They both answered differently because they saw different things from each other’s point of view. The man wanted the two kids to question their friendship and that’s just what he did.

Camp Hanes Trip

In the morning on Thursday the 6th grade left for Camp Hanes, for 1 night. We knew that there was a hurricane coming up our way. We had to get on a charter bus and go to where the camp was located, king NC. The bus ride was about 2 hours till we would get there. Everyone was talking and watching a movie on the bus. Some people would think it was fun on the bus and some didn’t think that. When we stepped off the bus and got our bags and brought them into the gym.

We did so many fun things. Then we listened to all the counselors tell us their names and the rules about camp. After that we ate lunch. The 6th graders did adventures activities while we were in camp Hanes. My favorites were the hike and canoeing. Both of them were very fun. The hike had a very pretty view when we got to the top it was about 1.5 miles up and back down. When we get to a few steep parts in the hike we used a rope. When my group did the canoeing we got in partners of 2 or 3. Then we learned how to paddle with the ore and how we should get in the canoe. Never  stand up in the canoe. 

One thing I am proud of is sleeping in a cabin with 16-20 people every once in a while someone gets up, coughs, sneezes or shifts around. But hopefully everyone got a bit of sleep at night. We had to get up at around 6:30-6:50 to eat breakfast. After breakfast we got a small time to play on the fields or in the airnasium. After that we went to the gym and played fun games in groups. Some we needed to work together, some we played for fun. When we finished doing that the buses arrived we loaded up our stuff and unfortunately it was raining. Once we loaded everything on the bus we got on and started our ride back. Camp Hanes was very fun and I would love to go again. It had so many fun things we did.

Finding Someplace Backpack

Over the summer we read the book Finding Someplace. It was an amazing book. In the book there was a girl named Reesie who needed to pack a backpack full of important things to survive. She had to be fast and smart about the things she brought. She had to pack a backpack because hurricane Katerina was going to touchdown in New Orleans. This book took place in 2005. Reesie packed important things to help her stay alive.

If I needed to pack a backpack like she did when a hurricane touched down in her hometown. I would pack useful and important things to me. I would pack an inflatable raft that I could use because it could start to flood and it would be important to have something that you can float on so you don’t drown then I would pack a phone, a phone charger, and batteries to keep my phone charged  I would use my phone to call for help if needed like if i broke a bone. I will also pack a big full water bottle and some money. I would use the money to buy things if needed, then I would have my water bottle to stay hydrated. I also pack a book, a flashlight, and a lot of food that wouldn’t go bad fast. I will use the flashlight when it gets dark out and need it, then for when I have something to entertain myself I pack a book and food for when I get hungry. If I ever get hurt, I have a first aid kit in my backpack too. The next things I would bring are a rain jacket, a change of clothes, a pair of shoes, and a hat. If it rains I have a rain jacket. If I get wet I have a change of clothes. That’s what I would bring in my backpack if I had to pack a backpack in very little time like Reesie did.
