Book Clubs: Eight Keys – Jot 1

So far in the book Eight Keys I don’t understand why it’s a mystery because the keys don’t lead to something mysterious. The key just lead to a room with pictures of her mom and a chair with a bear sitting on it and it the bears hand there was a letter from her dad that he wrote before he died (Elise’s parents both died when she was little). The letter didn’t have anything that had to do with mystery in it. I’m thinking that the mystery is having to find the keys and seeing what’s inside each room. I also think that part of the adventure is getting to know her parents a little bit more. Over all I don’t think the book has that much mystery in it.

Disney World/Lego Land

Hi everyone,

When I was 7 I went to Disney world and Lego land. I had so much fun.In Disney world we got a private tour guide (she was so nice). She had front of the line passes so we got to go on all of the rides a bunch of times without having to wait for a really long time. I don’t like roller coasters (especially when I was little) so I didn’t go on a lot of the roller coasters but I did go on some of the less fast ones (that I wouldn’t throw up on) and they were really fun But I did go on one that was really fast and I almost threw up on that I really hated, but that was at the start of the day so I didn’t end off on a bad note. When we went on the rides one of my brothers would go with the tour guide and sit in front or behind us and I would usually sit with my parents and my other brother, but once or twice I sat with the tour guide.At Lego land we didn’t have a tour guide but we did get front of the line passes. We went on so many really cool rides there. Every thing was made out of Lego.I rode a Lego car and I got a fake drivers licence, that was my favorite ride. There was this Lego guy sitting on a bench making sleeping noises that had the same hair as my dad so we took a picture of my dad with the statue. When we went for lunch there was another Lego statue saying “Pizza Pizza, Get your pizza here.I had so much fun in Disney world and Lego land.

California

Hey Guys,

 

I went to California over winter break. It was so much fun. My family stayed in Hollywood at this really fun hotel. We saw so many cool things. These are just some of the things we did. One cool thing was that when we looked out of our window we saw the Hollywood sign, But it was pretty far away so one of the activities we did was hiking to the Hollywood sign. When we got close enough to the Hollywood sign we took pictures and we got this great picture of me wearing my sunglasses looking like a movie star. It was awesome! We hiked with our family friends, but they didn’t go all the way. Another fun thing we did was go to Universal Studios. We went with our other family friends. When we went we did cool rides and we got a tour of where they filmed the movies. The lines were so long so we bought front of the line passes, which was great because if we didn’t it would take us 2 hours to go on a 5 minute ride. But instead it was only about a five minute wait (or less some rides were only a 2 minute wait). The next fun things we did was go on the WB studio tour which is where you get to see the places your favorite shows or movies were filmed. I also got to see my cousins one of them already graduated collage and the other one is a grown up. When we saw my cousin that is a grown up we went to the restaurant that he works at (he is the head chef) we got so much food and we got to go to the kitchen to see where they cooked.When we saw my other cousin (he was with his girlfriend) we went to La Brea Tar Pits which is where you see the bones of some animals that came out of pits of tar and then we got to see the pits of tar. We did so many cool things in California and I highly recommend going there.

Camp

Hello everybody,

 

this summer will be my third year of camp at Tyler Hill, and I’m so exited. We do lots of fun activities at camp such as, gymnastics, cooking, swimming, basketball, soccer and much more. We also get time to hang out with our friends. A couple weeks ago I went shopping with my camp friends at Denny’s for camp stuff. We got a lot of matching outfits. At camp you get to bring a lot of your own stuff to make your bunk look nicer and to make it more like home. At the end of everyday at camp we do a different activity such as, scavenger hunt, trash fashion show (where you make an outfit for one member of your bunk out of unused garbage bags), plays based off of a theme and each person in the age group puts one item into there bunks ┬álaundry bag, every group gets one laundry bag and the items in it are used to act out the play, every night at camp we have a different evening activity. Camp has so many fun things to do and I love going to camp.

Italy

Hello everyone,

 

When I was little I went to Italy. It was so much fun! I went to 4 different places in Italy. I went to Florence, Pisa, Venice and Rome. We stayed in 3 different hotels because we didn’t sleep in Pisa we went to Pisa for 6 hours. All the hotels that we went to were really good and they were like apartments because we got our own kitchen, living room, dining room and much more. We did so many things. One thing that we did was see the Leaning Tower Of Pisa. We got a tour guide/picture taker to take us around. Another thing we did was go in a water taxi. We did that every day when we were in Venice because Venice is full of water so that’s the only way to get around. I also went in a gondola witch was pretty boring because I was little and gondola are slow and when you’re little you like fast things. We also went to a lot of cool restaurants and the food was so good. The only foods I ate in Italy were pizza, pasta, bread and gelato. We did a lot of fun things in Italy.

Spring Break

Hi everyone,

 

I’m so exited for spring break! Even though I’m not going anywhere I’m doing a lot of fun things. One thing that I’m going to do is see my cousins. They don’t live close to me so I don’t get to see them a lot but I always have fun when they come or I go see them. Another thing I’m doing is a gymnastics camp and I love gymnastics so I’m so exited to do it. I’m also going to my grandparents house because it’s Passover. They have a party every year on the first night of Passover and it’s really fun because I get to see some of my cousins (not the ones that live far away from me), my grandma makes the best matzo ball soup and she makes it for Passover. Another thing I’m doing is my family is hosting people for the second night of Passover so that means I get to see more of my cousins, the same ones again and my grandmother on the other side of the family. I love hosting people for party because I like setting up for the party and I also love the party. I’m also having a sleepover and I have a gymnastics competition. The last thing I’m doing is celebrating my mom’s birthday. It’s going to be so much fun. I’m so exited for spring break for so many reasons.
