Summer Stories – Mudra

The Best Summer Ever

In June 2010, I flew to 3 different countries. First, I went to India for 2 weeks. I went shopping there and played with my cousins. Then, for one week, I went to London. I took some tours and learned very interesting facts. Then, for the last week, I went to Switzerland. We walked and looked around. We took very few tours there. We climbed to a snowy mountain and played in the snow.

The last thing we did for our trip is look at live bears in person. There were 4 bears: 1 adult, 1 young adult, and 2 baby cubs. I liked it when the baby cubs played together. Then we flew back home. I had a fun time, but I missed home a lot.

Every Thursday and sometimes Saturdays, I have swimming lessons.  And I have lots and lots and lots of fun with Ms. Shannon.  And I love to play at home and in the Adventure Science Center.  And I love to go to the Planetarium and watch these different kinds of videos in the Adventure Science Center in the Planetarium.  And I love to do photographs with Ms. Shannon and print them out and put them in frames.  And loooooovvvvveeeee to listen to songs.  And I am going to go to Theater camp.  And I went to Zoo camp and Cheekwood camp.

My Summer Pool Lesson

One day I went to MTSU and my mom signed me up for swimming lessons in level 3 and I did it for two weeks.  My teacher was Ms. Christy and six people were in my class. My friend was Zoe and we learned many swimming skills and rules, we also had fun going on the slide and diving board.  At the end of class every day I got to go free swimming and it was great for those two weeks.  At the end of the whole class we got a certificate and candy and I was so happy.

The End!

Summer Stories – Ojee

This summer I took a camp at University School of Nashville. They provide many summer camps for children. They are for K-12 kids. I chose to do a science and ceramics camp. They were lots of fun. We learned about pressure, planes, weather, and did many great experiments. We made bubbles burst into flames, saw cockroaches, ran hamsters in a maze, made virtual cars, mazes, and a solar system.

In ceramics we made awesome crafts. I made a box, 3 bowls, a plaster mold, a monster, and a piggy bank. I recommend for a lot of kids to do these camps. If you want to register you can just go on their website and register. You don’t have to go to school there to attend their camps.
