Exploring Physical Challenges

On May 9th my family and many of the fulltime RV families at the Branson, Missouri, Rally participated in a field trip at Fritz’s Adventure, which is a building that has outdoor-type adventures inside! The first thing my friends and I did was the 4-story ropes course. As we were being harnessed, I felt really […]

An Engaging Museum

On April 26th, my mom and I visited the Oak Ridge Children’s Museum in Tennessee, which is another one of my mom’s childhood places. The first exhibit included a Mars playscape area and rocket that I played on for a while. Mom told me the “rock” climbing part used to be a slide when she […]

A Dull Museum

On April 19th, my mom and I visited the American Museum of Science and Energy in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. While we walked through the museum, Mom took a stroll down memory lane and told me some of her childhood stories. I wasn’t impressed with the museum because it was very small, but below are some […]

The Marvelous Cove

On April 9th, my parents and I visited Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. We drove there because we still needed the Tennessee sticker for our RV. Back in the early 1800s, settlers built their farms in the valley of Cades Cove. Now, an eleven-mile, one-way loop takes visitors on a self-guided tour […]

The Better Shot

On March 16th, my dad and I attended a Project Appleseed event at Isaac Davis Memorial Range in Wacissa, FL. At the event, there were three students and ten instructors. We learned about American history and rifle marksmanship. I had to change rifles four times to decide which one was the best fit for me. […]

Canoeing Trip

On March 6, I experienced my first canoe trip with my mom and other full-time RV families (FtF) on the Suwannee River in Florida. The two mile canoe trip was a pre-rally activity for FtF. There were two-seater canoes and if your boat had three people, someone would have to sit in the middle. Luckily, […]

Squid Dissection

On February 25th, my cousin, Jocelyn, and I dissected a squid in my kitchen. We did it because it was a part of my science unit on cephalopods and I wanted to see squid insides! There were some hard and easy parts throughout the dissection. The least difficult part was carefully snipping the mantle open. […]

Teaching ASL

Ever since the beginning of January, I’ve been teaching my mom ASL (American Sign Language) because I was frustrated with art. At first we began learning one sign a day; now we’re learning two signs a day. We are slowly mastering “Forever” by Kari Jobe which was the first song I learned how to sign. I like sign […]

Rosa Parks Museum

My family and I visited the Rosa Parks Museum on February 10th, in Montgomery AL, which was mainly about the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The Montgomery Bus Boycott started when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a public bus  because she believed all people were equal. During the Boycott, the furious white people were very harsh […]

The Chitimacha Museum

At first we thought that the museum was closed, but it turned out to be open. It was the smallest museum I’ve ever seen! When I first walked in I saw a Chitimacha statue(picture). I went to these very interesting woven baskets, I liked them a lot and wished I could do it. But, it […]
