Hi, it’s Becca! I am nine years old, and I go to Fox Meadow ELementary School.
One of my hobbies is horseback riding. I love horses so much! I go to the farm at least once a week, and I wish I could live at the barn. I love the smell of horse manure, and the neighing, and stomping of the horses. I love the talking of the horseback rider trainers, in the arena. I love every little thing about the barn. I also like to bring an apple, or carrot, or some kind of treat to the horses. It’s amazing how as soon as I give it to them, they munch away. I go to horseback riding camp at
Twin Lakes Farm. That’s one thing you can kind of decipher about me. In school people call me Horse. ( at least my friends do.) When I go horseback riding all of my worries melt away. I love the smooth walk of the horse, the bumpy, bouncy, ride of the trot, the smooth glides of the canter, and the wind whirring by your face in the gallop. And the flying of the horse and the rider, as they jump over the jumps. I love grooming the horses, and getting ready for a horseshow. I’ve been in horse shows before, they are really fun.
I also play the cello. I have lessons once a week at my house, and I also have early morning orchestra, and in school cello. I really like the cello. It has such a mellow, and really nice sound. I love playing it. I just learned how to play Ode To Joy. That is my favorite song that an orchestra plays. I love how my fingers grip onto the bow, and the bow flattens along on the strings, and when I move my hand, a wonderful sound erupts from the beautiful cello. As soon as I start playing the cello all my worries go away. Just like when I go horseback riding.
I have two sisters and one brother. I have an older sister who is 10, and in 5th grade, a younger sister who is 7 and in 2nd grade, and a younger brother who’s 5, and in kindergarten. I have a mom named Sali, and a dad named Michael, and they are both lawyers. They have a law firm called Rakower Law. I once went to court to see my dad in action. And I’m not going to lie, it was super boring for me, I didn’t even understand anything that was going on. In the end, my grandma ( my dad’s mom) started crying, and everyone started hugging, and they were all acting so weird. I asked what was going on, and they said that my dad had won. I was happy for him. The people who hired my dad were really happy too. We were going to go to a restaurant to celebrate when a man from the other side came over to us and said that sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and that’s life. He also said other stuff about my dad, and us. Good stuff.
Everyone says that I’m lucky to have my siblings. I know it’s true. But another thing that I am lucky to have is my parents. I know right now if you are reading this you’re thinking: well, duh! Of course you love your parents, almost everyone loves their parents. I know most people like their parents, but my parents are special. Just like everyone else’s. But mine are special in the “Rakower family” way. My parents always plan super cool adventures and things for us. About a week ago, I just found out that my family is going to South America for three to six months! Whaaaaaaaat?! I know right. It was extremely crazy when I found out too. But I think it will be one of the best adventures I’ve ever been on. It will be really fun! We are going to go to Ecuador, The Galapagos Islands, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Bolivia, so many places! I am going to get homeschooled. It is going to be so much fun! While I’m away, I will post things on my blog telling the people who are reading it, what I am doing, and I’ll show photos, and I’ll explain what I’m seeing, doing, and how it is. I will explain it so clearly, and the photos will have so much detail, that you’ll feel like you are in South America.
Hope you read my blog!
P.S. if you read my blogs while I’m in South America,
I guarantee you’ll feel like you’re there!
