Rippling water

(I have been writing poems recently. I have written ten poems and I will put all of them up on my blog!)


Basketball in the Snow

I am from my family. My dad and mom’s sides of the family. I am from my mom, my dad, my three brothers, and my grandparents. I am from them all a little bit each. I am from their love that we share as one. I am from my family because without them I would not be who I am.

I am from my summers at Camp Taconic. I am from staying up late while talking with my friends when we aren’t allowed to. I am from all the activities that we travel through, all the way from ropes to waterfront. I am from my counselors who never fail to make my bunk mates and me laugh. I am from keeping candy past visiting day and sleeping through the morning bell. I am from my summer home.

I am from the Berkshires in Massachusetts. I am from the lake. From tubing with my brothers or water skiing with everyone cheering me on. I am from camp fires and the stories we tell. I am from ice fishing in winter as well as normal fishing in the summer. I am from flying down a hill on a sled with my brother right next to me.

I am from Orleans, Cape Cod. I am from its beaches with their barbecues and waves. I am from the pinching crabs scurrying past my feet, too fast to catch. I am from walking all the way out at low tide, then running off back through the water to play until it was too dark.

I am from flying through my house at the first snowfall. I am from cuddling up with my family next to me as we watch a movie. I am from playing basketball outside in the snow and ice. I am from not spending every moment thinking about my brothers about to leave for college, again.

I am from Camp Taconic, the Berkshires, Orleans, and my house. But what really makes me me are my amazing friends and family and the memories we make wherever we go. The memories that I will remember forever.

I will be blogging soon. Bye.


I Don’t Recommend Being the Youngest

(As you know I have been writing narratives. This is a piece from my third and final narrative.)

After Emma left our house, my mom started to cry. Tears streamed down her face, and she looked away to try and hide them, but I could tell. I knew she didn’t want me to know the reason she was crying, like always. Everyone else probably already knew but didn’t care to tell me. I never get told anything first. It is truly horrible to be the youngest, and I don’t recommend it. Finally she called me over. Yes finally she will tell me everything. Maybe she will even tell me first the next time there is something to know. Maybe next time Adam will be told last or even Josh or Daniel. When I come over her face becomes serious but sad. When she speaks her voice is like that too.

My Turn to Learn the Hard Way

(This is a blurb from another narrative I wrote. I hope you like it.)

Five minutes later, as we arrived at the park, thoughts ran through my head. I will prove my mom wrong and she will witness history. Next year when I play on this playground everyone, even the teachers will watch me with astonishment. I will show them all that I am special. I will be so cool.

The First Arrest

(The following is is a blurb from my first narrative)

All of a sudden the shrill of a woman’s voice pierced the air. It’s force so strong it almost shoved me into the water. I was off balance twisting and turning keeping myself from the water when a hand grabbed my wrist. Then it was time for me to let out a shrill of my own. Luckily it was only my brother, Adam. Then we both turned around to see where the first shrill had come from. There was no woman on the water beyond the rock, in the trees on shore, or on the rock with us. I wished that she was and that she wasn’t at the same time. I wished she wasn’t because she sounded angry and I didn’t want her to take her anger out on Adam and I. This made my curiosity to see her grow even more. Even so, I chose to have her stay where she was, but that didn’t matter because it wasn’t my choice. So her shrill just kept getting louder.

Hi I am back! This summer I went to Camp and it was the best summer of my life. I am in fifth grade at my school and we are going to rule the school! My teacher is Mr. B and this year will be so fun and I think I will want to work at a charity. Mr. B says that he thinks it would be fun and that his past students loved it.

I just made the basketball team for my town and I am so happy about it. I hope I make a good lacrosse team but I really want to be with my friends. At school we recently went on a field trip called BOCES. It was so fun and it wasn’t even like school, it was just hanging out with your friends. That is was it seemed at least, I know it was all about team building. So basically it was fun and good for academics.

I am so excited for my brothers to be home from college at the same time. One of them had family weekend a little while a go but I couldn’t go because I had a lacrosse tournament and no one in my family was going on the weekend. My parents were going on Friday but they came get home too late for me to go with them. And they were going to be with all of my brothers friends parents. This year will be amazing especially with my class.

There are Monsters in my Closet

When I was four, I thought I could fly. So I climbed an apple tree grabbed three apples and jumped. Then I thought the apples weighed me down, so I tried again without them. The only kind of candy I like is chocolate.  I thought my mom dove to the bottom of the ocean. It was just a pool.  At camp we were talking loudly at night, and a mean, old swim instructor yelled at us. On visiting day I did a double flip on the trapeze by accident. My brother got me a giant banana from the fair. One day I got mad and pulled out all its hair. My friends babysitter was a little scary, but not as much after I spanked her but a couple times. One night at camp when I fell asleep my bunk mates took my giant bear and put it on top of me. When I woke up they were all asleep on top of the bear. I have made my brother through up by bouncing on his stomach. I used to think monsters were hiding in my closet. I’ve always wanted to go to the rain forest. Now that I’m going I am not that excited, because we are going to be on a tour bus.  I have never had a giant lollipop in my life but I always say I love them. I once hot glued my whole hand. I didn’t know what to do so I let it dry. I put a second coat. And a third, and a fourth…  At camp I hid all of my bunks candy under my bed. I am not good at gymnastics. I was walking on the beach me and my family saw a beached whale. We helped move it back to the water. When we got it there it didn’t swim it just floated away.

I will be blogging soon. Bye.


Dip Into Greatness When You’re at the Melting Pot

Are you ready to taste the greatness? If you are, go to the Melting Pot. At the Melting Pot you can cook your own food or dip things into cheese or chocolate fondue of your choice because it is mainly a fondue restaurant. This restaurant deserves 5 stars . The hours are: 5 pm-10 pm on Mondays-Thursdays, 5 pm -11 pm on Fridays, and 12 pm- 11 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. It has a menu that is a little different. Customers can pick a full meal with an option of a main course which is called the “Four Course Experience.” Customers can also order things separately, so they can pick which ones they want. The most customers will pay for the “Four Course Experience” is $50 and the least they can pay is $40.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who asks because it’s really fun and all the waiters are really funny. The last time I ate at the Melting Pot, my waiter’s name was Andre and he always said, “Never fear, Andre’s here.” It takes a long time to finish cooking, but the food always comes right away. It takes a long time because each person can only cook two things at once and each piece of food can take up to two and a half minutes. There is a timer on their website. The atmosphere there is really cheerful, and it is a good place to have a family dinner or a birthday party. For a customer’s birthday, there is a television at the front door that will show a birthday message to the person who is celebrating.

The only time that it is loud is when people are singing happy birthday. Customers don’t have to dress fancy, but I recommend not wearing a t-shirt. It is kid friendly and I really love this restaurant. I would definitely go back and would eat there every night if I could!

Hello, I’m Hannah

Hi, my name is Hannah! I am nine years old. I’m the youngest child in my family, I have three brothers. They are all really nice to me. They are also really old! One is in college, one is in high school and the last one is in middle school. I’m in elementary school and I have the best teacher ever. I play the bass. I like every subject in school. After school, I am either playing a sport, doing my homework, playing with my brothers, or playing with my friends.

I really love playing sports. My favorite sport is basketball. This winter, I played on two basketball teams. One was my town’s Rec basketball team and the other one was a team that my mom put together. The team my mom put together was so fun because a lot of my friends played on it and we made it to the finals. We lost, but I don’t care because the other team was really good and we had a really fun season. I’m really excited to play for that coach again. All of my older brothers also really love basketball. They are also really good. My second favorite sport is lacrosse.  I really love it. But it’s funny because playing goalie is what got me into playing lacrosse and now I don’t even like goalie that much. Next comes soccer. It’s really fun, but I’m sad because my coach just moved away. He was really funny. At all of our games, he would be squatting all the time!

Even though I really love sports, I love school too. I love every single subject. My favorites are math, science, and reading. In science, I really just love doing experiments, but in math I like everything.

I really love camp ! It is  a lot of fun. I meet so many new people and now they are some of my best friends. I almost never get to see my camp friends though. The last time I saw one was actually this week. But she was new. I hadn’t meet her before. I’m really excited because she is very nice and she is going to go to my camp next year. It’s surprising that I’m am going to see another camp friend this week, but that’s fine by me!

I didn’t mention this but I really love dogs. One of my brothers and I had finally convinced my mom to get a dog. Then we announced it to my whole family and another one of my brothers who really doesn’t like dogs started to argue. Ever since, we’ve been trying to convince him to get a dog.

In my blog, I’m going to talk about basketball (and other sports) and things I’m doing in school. I might end up talking about other fun things I’m doing outside of school. Please tell me some other fun things you would like me to talk about in my blog. I’ll try to post as often as possible. I hope you like my blog.
