My Summer Blog Post

As they always do, summer went by fast in 2013. Summer is very fun, but I am also excited for summer to be over because that means I get to meet 130 new 6th graders. The start of the school year is exciting, with maybe a little nervousness entering the middle school. Before we get totally into the school year, let's take a moment to reflect on the summer. 
My summer was both good and bad. It was good because I got to spend a lot of quality time with my family. We took a trip to the Black Hills and stayed in a cabin. It was a fun vacation. I worked a lot this summer as well. I shingle houses for Sandia Roofing. We shingled 90 houses in Sioux Falls so we stayed very busy. The weather was pretty good for working outside this summer. Way better than last year's horrendously hot  temperatures. I also spent my time studying because I am currently working on my Masters in Technology. 
Unfortunately, my summer had some bad things happen as well. My dad got in a motorcycle accident on June 25th and has been in the hospital ever since. It was a very tough thing to go through and made the summer not as fun. He is still fighting to get better and perhaps I will tell you more about my dad and his accident in the future.

Task #1: How was the summer for you? In this practice blog post, I want you to tell me about your summer. Try to give me specifics as far as what you did, places you went, things you experienced, etc. Do not just type "My summer was good." I want to hear about your summer!
Task #2: Tell me about elementary school. What do you remember? Who was your favorite teacher?

My summer was great! I went to the pool almost every day, had sleepovers almost every other night, and had the best vacations! First, we went to Arkansas to visit my grandpa and grandmas condo near the lake. I would have swam all day, but my grandpa and grandma didn't want me sunburned! My family and I drove 16 hours there and back! Our second vacation we drove 10 hours to Wisconsin dells indoor and outdoor water park! We had a blast swimming all day! When we returned home I went back to my swimming pool and sleepover schedule again. That was basically my summer!!!!

My Elementary year? Now that brings back good memories. I’d have to say that 5th grade was my favorite year! I was a little worried at first, because everyone was saying that I had the worst teacher. She ended up being one of the best years EVER!!!!! I went to RBE, my favorite teacher was Mrs. Oshiem (yes, my 5th grade teacher). I loved 5th grade! And I hope I can say that about 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, and so on. But for now, I’m just going to stick with 6th!
