Show not tell

At camp we went in to the hall and played a game similar to tennis but in a smaller version. We got to play against a adult It was really fun. We tried and tried to win but He was just to good.

Amazing race

"Fling" as the paper ball went flying, it landed near the bucket. This was part of our first activity where we had make a slingshot to shoot paper balls at targets.  It was really hard to hit the target because when we shot the paper ball the wind blew it.  "Man, this is so annoying," I moaned to my friend Lepa. Amazing at the end we managed to score a whopping 160.

The next challenge we had, was to go around our community to find clues.  The first place we had to go to was was the bakery where we got an egg.  At the pools we got a piece of wood. We also had to go to the Point England reserve  
to get a big tin can and a plastic bag filled with firewood from the beach. On our way back I said to my crew," Why don't we have a rest stop to feed the horses."  Finally we ended up at the office to get a box of matches.

Once we had found all of the clues we went back to the finish line. With annoyance we found out that we were disqualified because we delayed too long.  We came late because we fed the horses. We put it all together anyway and it made a hobo stove. With the hobo stove we had to cook an egg but unfortunately we didn't have enough time, and Stevie dropped the egg anyway. 

Ben Carson

Ben Carson was born in Detroit Michigan.  His mum Sonya dropped 3 grade and got marred 13. When Ben was 8 years old his parents divorced and his dad left his mum to raise them up by her self.

Her mum had to work as a mad 2 times or 3 a day to provide her family with food and cloths. He and his big brother wasn't doing so good at school he was at the bottom.  Also he got angry really fast because he was really stressed.

Then when she was at this rich persons house she realize that thay had lots of books and thay didn't watch t v that often. Then she wanted to turn there lives around by limited t v and not aloud to go out side until thay finish there thay had to read and do a book report on 2 books a week.  Also thay had to hand in a written report to there mother.

One time when the teacher bang in a rock and asked the class what the rock was named. No one but there hand up so he but his hand up and said the right name. He astonished his class mates with his new knowledge.

Soon he was the smartest in his class and wanted to be a medic and then was a neurosurgent and became Inspirational to doctors.

Soft ball tournament

Wack! As the ball went flying as we started the soft ball tournament.  We were so excited in winning the tournament.  The way we were going to win the tournament was if we listed to the mentor.

We started the day with a smashing score of 7-6 to us.  But that doesn't mean that we were going to win the next rounds. I felt that I was getting better at catching. There was a hit so big that it went on to another field I think that was amazing.

As Lepa bowled the ball the opposition hit the ball strait at me and I court the ball. But that wasn't that good enough because they were betting us by twelve home runs. Then it was our turn to hit the ball.  As we were cheering our team on we got so much home runs I lost count but it wasn't enough to win and we lost but we tried our best.

We lost because we didn't listen to the coach and they couldn't catch that well. If we stayed our eyes on the ball we could of won that game.  I think if we all trained on our catching we would on had the chance of winning.

At the end of the day some of us were exhausted and tied.  But the main thing is that we had fun.
