What is everyone doing in the summertime?



Happy summertime 5th graders! So, what is everyone doing? On the last day of school, you said you'd like a place to come in and tell us all what you are up to. Here you go: let us know what you are doing throughout the summer and keep in touch. I hope you all have some fun times to share with us. I know a lot of you are going away on trips; I know of two people who have already left and summer just started! Anyway, let us know what you are up to over the course of summer. I hope to hear from you all.

  6. Fun start to the summer considering school just got out a couple of days ago! I finally got to ride my mountain bike on Friday; almost 20 miles and no crashes. Well, someone I was with may have had a minor crash, but none for me.

    Keep having fun you all!

  8. II’ve pretty much just been hanging around at my house. My family and I have been planning fun things like Disneyland, Universal Studios, Six Flags, and that kind of stuff. We’re even going on a road trip up to Minneapolis to see some relatives, then through Montana to Seattle, and then coming back. I’ve been thinking of places to go over the course of the trip like Yellowstone, Mount Rushmore, maybe the Four Corners monument, I don’t know. But it all depends on time. Other than the road trip, possibly Big Sur, some hiking and more fun things. I’ll post more things when they happen.

    Have a great summer everyone!

    2. That all sounds fun, Dylan. You go to great places. That's a lot of driving, but you will get to see so many things. Yellowstone would be awesome, and I really want to see Mount Rushmore, myself. You have to let us know how your trip goes!

  12. I am having a great time in Japan! Right now I am in Kyoto. We have seen so many shrines and we will soon see 10,000 gates. The food here is great and the mochi with red bean paste is, too. We are learning about the geisha culture. They can’t use a phone for five years. After that they can become independent. There is also a huge language barrier so it is very hard to communicate. There are very few trash cans so every thing is super clean, but it is hard to through stuff away. I hope every body is having a great summer!

    1. WOW! I didn't know that you were going to Japan! It sounds like you are having a great time. No phone for five years? That seems impossible in today's American society. Most people can't avoid picking up their phone for five hours! It's kind of crazy that there are very few trash cans so the place is super clean. I don't think that would work here. Have a great rest of your trip. Tell us about the 10,00 gates.

    2. I'm probably more envious of you than Benjamin.

  13. I just got back from Paris, France. The food was OK, I guess. We walked to a lot of places, such as the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe. We went to lots of museums. We saw the Mona Lisa and Nepoleon's tomb. We ate crepes, beef steaks, croissants, and macaroons.

    1. How fun! You got to see some great sites, Benjamin. I know someone in our class was wanting to see the Mona Lisa; how awesome that you got to see it. Sounds like you had a fun trip. I would really like the museum part, I think!

    1. Donner Lake is so fun-I love being at the site of historical events. I miss you too, Jackson. School will be back before we know it and we can resume our conversations then! In the meantime, have fun!

  15. I am going to 2 summer camps. One is called Camp Kesem. The other is called Camp Winthers. Also I am going on a 10 day trip to Yellowstone, The Grand Tetons, and Craters of the Moon.

    1. I hope that those camps are as fun as Westminster Woods was. I was at Camp Winthers probably 30+ years ago . . . Long time! Yellowstone will be fun. You have to let us know how that trip went. You and Dylan need to meet up.

  16. I just figured out that if you folded paper 103 times, it would equal the diameter of the universe.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But, how many times can you actually fold a paper before you can't do it any more? Give that a try!

      Delete
    2. I folded a piece of paper 6 times.

      Delete
    3. Yeah, it's hard to fold many layers of paper. Good thing we could use aluminum foil for our circuits instead of paper!

  17. Last weekend we went to Reno for a graduation party, then stayed the night in Squaw Valley. The hotel room was huge! There was a main room about the size of a normal sized hotel room, then two bedrooms. It also had a balcony looking over the area. My sister finally fell asleep at like 11:00. For Fathers Day we went to a treetop zipline course, where you are attached to a harness and trolley, and do an obstacle course connecting to the trees in the area. Only my dad and I could do it because Charlee,(my sister), wasn’t tall or old enough for it and my mom needed to watch her. There were ten courses in all, each ranked like ski courses. There were two Green Circles,(easy), six Blue Squares,(intermediate), and two Black Diamonds,(advanced). I’m going to tell about the Black Diamond experiences. Lets just say, i was scared.

    Black Diamond #1: Wind Chimes. On this one, I got the most scared. It started off with a zipline, then a log that I had to walk across. I thought it would be fine. Then the swinging logs came in. there were two ropes connecting to each log. The logs were thin and vertical. I had to step on the logs and be careful so i didn’t fall in between them although i knew that I would catch onto a zipline if i did. I took about a minute to get across. My dad somehow took about 25 seconds, don’t ask me how. the rest was pretty easy, and I was fine.

    Black Diamond #2: Rings. This one was a double black diamond in height and difficulty, but it was easier than the last. It consisted of mostly ziplines. There was a thin metal cable that I had to balance across, some rings i had to swing on, some X and O platforms, and that was it. Very easy

    That concludes my 2nd summer blog post

    Thanks for reading!

    1. That sounds like an awesome weekend, Dylan! I would love just the balcony by itself, let alone the zipline obstacle courses. That should like a fun challenge. It's always good to know that you can't fall because you are harnessed in! I look forward to reading about your next adventure!

  19. Hey Guys! I am currently at a summer camp called ATS. It is called "Creative Writing." Here is some of the content of my story I am making! :D

    ReplyDelete
  20. This story takes place in the imaginary land of Araria. Araria is a patch of flat land on the planet, Internet. Mostly men buy and sell swords and food for hunting. Araria is currently crowded and loud but friendly. But there is darkness spreading around the Internet. Lately, people have been talking about this concept in Araria, but they do not know what the darkness was made of, nor did they know where it was coming from.

      I too am looking forward to more of your story. The storyline sounds intriguing. If you aren't going to illustrate it, you should team up with Elijah H-he's a great illustrator!

  21. Hey guys! So far since I've moved to Folsom :(.. I've had fun rock climbing, swimming, and getting used to the new house. From this Friday-Monday I'll be in Tahoe for my Grandma's 75th B-day:). Last week I went to a camp at the Folsom Aquatic Center that had water slides, high dives, a blow up obstacle course, and swimming. So far I've had a good summer:)
