6th Grade life: Gone, Now, and What’s left

This has been a crazy year. Fun, happy, sad, mean, and whatever other adjectives you would use to describe the year. We first start when we went to Camp Cheerio at the beginning it was nice and then we crashed into a tree on the canoe.  Then we went to Stagville and saw a huge difference of how was life back then. After that we did a plank challenge which still hurts my arms to think about. We went to the Nasher in Durham, NC which was cool. You got to see my baby chicks and how they look now.

All good things must come to an end…

This is the time when I say good….. day because I’m going  to be updating my blog so keep an eye out from this.

See ya’ll soon!

Nasher

 

We had a late start and we went to a local art museum called Nasher. There we saw a lot of unique and beautiful art like the one above is a different form of art that looks just like the John the Baptist. There really cool ones because of the paintings had sticks poking out and had  matches for hair. I recommend it to everyone to see a wild yet beautiful paintings.

Camp Cheerio

This year my school went to Camp Cheerio. There we met friends and classmates that we hadn’t seen in a while.

I didn’t like Camp Cheerio but I didn’t not like it either. See, we went to this other camp last year and we had a lot of fun going there. It was called  YMCA Camp Hanes.  The food there was great, all the activities were great, and even the cringeworthy charades was good. Everything was good there but, then there was Camp Cheerio.

The food was ok, the only good thing there was the gaga pit, the speleo box, and the vertical playpen. The rest was just not that good. The canoeing: my friend and I were terrible, we got stuck 8 times and then someone just capsized. It was pretty dull just being in the canoe doing nothing but also kind of nice watching nature and the fish. The most exciting part was probably when we got smashed into a tree.

The obstacle I liked the most was the Vertical Playpen or the VPP. You were tied to a harness and you were to climb the obstacles to reach the top. For me, it was very hard because I had to use upper-body strength that  I didn’t have. Above in the picture, I am climbing the second obstacle of the last

So I think Camp Cheerio was okay.

Thank you for your time.
