I had a good summer. I went fishing, camping, and swimming. This summer was the first time I went fly fishing. I caught a ton of bluegills on my fly rod. I also went salmon fishing. I caught my first lake trout. We camped in two different places. We camped at heli lake and Mud Lake. The only thing I did at camp was fish. This summer we got a new raft. I spent a lot of time on it. That was my summer.
My summer was really fun I went tubing down the plat river. Me my mom and my brother and my cosines went tubing. I had a really good time. I also went to Florida. I saw my sister. We went to Bush Gardens and whet to the ocean. Me and my mom drove back home. I really wanted to make candles but I never got to. I had a really good summer with my friends. I also went to arcadia beach and played with Daniel. I had a really good summer.

This summer I went to Blue Lake. I went with Madalyn Harvey. We had a great time. I think we were in the best cabin in the whole camp. Everyone in our cabin got along really well, and we are all still friends. It is a uniformed camp, so we all had to dress alike. Everyone wore a light blue polo shirt, tucked in all the way around, navy blue pants, skirt, capris, shorts, or jeans, and “substantial” shoes. The counselors would yell at you if your uniform was “messed up”: your collar popped, your shirt untucked, your sleeves rolled up, or your button unbuttoned. It got really annoying.
There was a carnival when I was there. There were lots of games: a hula hoop contest, a ring toss, a beanbag throw, a water bucket game, and lots more. Also, there was a dance. I went to the dance with a rock. Kelli, my choir partner, did too. Catherine was going to, but she got a date instead. I painted a face on my rock. He had long hair. It was really fun.
I went for voice. I was a soprano one in the SSA choir. We had five hours of rehearsal every day. In the end of camp we had a concert. Lots of people came to the concert. Camp was a really good experience for me.

My summer was great! The day after school ended my church had a youth sleepover. I was sick so I had to go to the doctors office. I had strep throat for the third time. I went to the sleepover but I had to stay away from everybody. The only reason I stayed was because my mom and dad were the supervisors We had a pudding fight, and I got to stand on the cement and throw pudding. When it was time for everybody to go to sleep I had to sleep in the back of the church. The next day I felt the same but I felt a little better. My summer was great.
This Summer was rally fun. I went out in the woods. I target practiced with my bow and 22 Riffle. I also fished. I stayed there for the week. I also went to a place called pirates cove. I had lots of fun. We went on waterslides swimming and racing. I swam almost every day at the beach. I live right next to it. I went swimming with Austin. I also went to arcadia days. I bought a lot I had lots of fun.
This last summer I went paintballing. It was fun. There was a lot of people playing. I goat shot in the ear, leg, arm, and in my back. The one that hurt the most is when I got shot in the ear. I also got some people out. My gun is a tippman 98 custom. Stuff I wanted to do this summer is go to hawiwwi, Wisconsin, or Florida. I went to a lot of friends houses. Also I went skateboarding with my friends. My skateboard is an element. This last summer I had a lot of fun.
This year I went to Indiana for a wedding. My cousin Chris’s wedding he was getting to his girlfriend Sarah. They had the wedding at Chris’s mom’s house. They got married in the front of there house. They had a huge tent if it rained, and it did. But it didn’t rain until at the resection. It was so hot out we all were sweaty. Sarah was so pretty, she had a long white dress. After the wedding came the rain it down pored. They had a golf cart and we just left the house to go on a ride, and it started to rain. There was one problem I was on the back, the back has no top. I was getting so wet, and my cosines Andrei and Luke were laughing at me. They had a top over them. I was soaked my mom said it is good luck if it rains on your wedding day. Apparently they will have a lot of luck.
This summer I went to see a Tigers game in Detroit. The Tigers won the game because Magglio Ordonez hit a grand slam in the ninth inning winning the game. That same week in October I saw a NASCAR race. Also this summer we went camping a lot of times. If I had two more days off school I would off of school I would off went on an Alaskan Cruise. My best friend’s mom took me to Michigan Adventures for the whole day. I rode the oldest wooden roller coaster in the United States. Summer was the best because I had friends over a lot. They also went camping with me. My favorite part was going fishing with my grandpa a lot. I caught a thirty pound King Salomon, it took me an hour and thirty two minutes to reel him in. Summer was the best summer I ever had.
This summer I played softball. One game I had a really bad game. I was sliding into home plate and the catcher hit me, I fell over and landed on my wrist. I went to the emergency room the next day a found out that I sprained my wrist. I fell on it wrong. I was in a splint for about a month, I was lucky that I didn’t break it.
But otherwise I had a great summer. I spent time at the beach I hung out with my friends.
I had a great summer!

This summer my cousins came up 2 or 3 times from Saline. We went over there too, but only 1’s or 2’s. The last time they came over was the best. My cousins names are Darah (12 years old), Erin (11 years old), and Samantha (6 years old). Darah brought one of her friends up named Liz. We climbed trees, played tag, and ate good food. We even gave each other massages and had a sleepover. On the day that they were going to go home we all went to the pier. Then we jumped off the pier! It was so fun.

My summer was good and bad. We have two houses one is in Mesick the other is in Harrison. The house in Harrison is a little trailer. We get to jet sky, fish, kneeboard, and fish. At night we sit around the fire and eat smores. The bad thing is that our neighbors are moving. They were really nice people and when ever we had boat problems they helped. At my house in Mesick I read a bit of star wars and of Erigorn. I also watched the ant bully. I also went fishing with Joe. We caught a king salmon and a Coho. My summer was really fun.
This summer I went to Mackinaw city in girl scouts. I stayed at a hotel there. That day we also went on a bout tour to the island and threw the Soo locks. We stayed in mackinaw city for three days.

This summer I went to the Indiana state fair for my cousin’s birthday. Then we went down to my grandmas and played cards. Then my mom and I saw these black clouds touch ground. We tuned on the TV and it said there was a tornado warning. Then it said there was a tornado sighting at east of third at 11 hundredth and my grandma said that’s right at the corner! Then we came home and went golfing with my cousin and his dad. Then we went golfing again with my friend. On about the fifth hole I chipped it in way to hard and it hit the pin and instead of bouncing off hit went strait down into the hole.
