Gol is a cow, but Katherine Applegate (author of Home of The Brave) also uses her as a symbol. How does Gol represent Kek’s past, present, and possibly his future?
I think Gol takes Kek back to some of his memories because he was a herder in his old life and so was his family. When he hugs his cow he remembers some of his memories with cows and memories with his family. I think the cow helps him like a camera because it brings him back like i said and since he does not have a phone he cant take photos so the cow is his camera. I think cows are a symbol of Keks future because it gives Kek hope.I think Gol gives Kek what he needs to stay not so depressed because it brings him back to his old life. Kek has a future with Gol because Gol I think is like keks daughter because Kek cares for her so much. I wonder if Kek will ever see Gol again? Will Keks mom ever come to see Gol.
Today in rocketry we did our first launch it was amazing.We were in the back of the famous Heathcote field at 9 am. We got 35 M it was super cool I really like launching a rocket since I got to do super cool job which was pumping the air into our Rockets which is really fun.I also got to set up the rocket on the launch pad so I got to get really a close up look at the launch pad. We added to an extension to a rocket as you might know, now are rocket has a longer top and are nosecone is higher on our rocket.Now that we did that we had this little Area with nothing so we decided to put a Smurf in it. Anyway that is how it looked. In my launch went 3rd and are nose cone came loose when are rocket came down because of all the impact. When I was watching it it was as if time stood still. Today we finished are second rocket it is amazing. We used what worked last time and what didn’t work and took it into consecration . Now ares has smaller wings and a 3.5 width nose cone .Are second launch rocket is done and it looks just like I thought it would .I feel exited and hopeful and I cant wait.Here are some good photos and videos.Try to pause the video at 8 seconds and 11 seconds. For the second video watch from 47 seconds after you watched the normal thing.
Om and I just started a book called THE CITY OF EMBER. So far I like the starting setting because they describe it so well for example It says”In the city of ember ,the sky was always dark . The only light came from great flood lamps mounted on top of buildings in the middle of larger squares . So far the story has been about then main character Lina is getting her job she gets the one were you have to work in the sewers to fix the light generator and Lina dose not want to do that but a friend named Doon wants to do that but I think he has plans to shut down all the power when he gets control.

if she gets found switching she will be in a lot of trouble]I think Lina will get bored of being a messenger and just carrying stuff and will regret switching jobs]I think that Lina will find out that a town she always drew is or was real]I think Lina did not like school because she said now i wont have to worry about the fate of tomorrow[I think running is the reason she wanted to do mail.

In the part of the book I read Doon hated is job in the sewer because he dose not get to go near the light generator and when he gets to see it he thought he could know why it is breaking down with a look but he cant so he is really put down and he regrets trading jobs. I also learned Lisas dad died and right when he died the generator started breaking down so I think he was the only one who understood it.
I love rocketry and I am looking forward to building and launching our rockets. The first thing we had to do was collect information and pictures to make are inspiration boards that will later on help us build our rockets. This part was really fun and funny because It was fun to learn about rockets and Isaac Newton.From studying Isaac Newton I learned how his ideas can help us during rocketry . When my group had are research and I was proud of what I printed and what I researched we were going to share and start are inspiration boards. When we started to share we noticed we all had the same pictures of fins and of diagrams so we cut some of them out and ended using half the stuff we had.
I am really proud of my inspiration board because It gives my group a layout of what to do and good ideas for parts of are rocket. I also loved how it looked.On our inspiration we had how our rocket is going to look. It will basically be a bottle raped in metallic tape and our fins blue yellow and pink. Throughout this stage of making or inspiration board I got frustrated at one thing and that was that we wasted a lot of paper and ink with the same ideas.
The next step was us using post its to write how our ideas will help us.This was a easy and short step so there is not so much writing. Next we did the part I am most proud of our draft which had all our ideas and would eventually be a rocket.Today October 12 I think my group had the most progress because we had assigned different jobs so we got a lot done for example when Lexi and me were making the wings Asher was inside making our design for the three d printer.One thing that happened that really frustrated me was that when we made the wings and we forgot to leave a place for the hot glue to stick the wings to the bottle. I also think I learned to think of every affect of the thing we do before we do It .
