It was really fun going to Washington D.C. We did a tour around the White House on our first day. But we were only allowed in the east wing. We also saw Bo for a half a second (Barack Obama’s dog). We were all surprised and curious if we actually saw Bo. The rest of it was cool but it wasn’t the best. I learned that they put up about 20 Christmas trees in one room. After we walked to the mall and played on the fields for a while.
After playing we went to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. That was really cool. It shows you how they make money. I saw 100,000,000 dollars in $10 bills in a box. In total I saw about $100,000,000,000,000 dollars. The thing that I liked that I learned was the ways to see the tricks to see if the money was real.
Then we went on a tour of the Capitol. My favorite was seeing Bo for that day. After that day we didn’t walk as much.
We went to the spy museum and I learned what things you have to learn to be a spy. Like you code name. I liked a picture explaining that a pigeon got the Medal of Honor because it was carrying messages from base to base. Then it got hurt but still delivered a messenger then that helped us win a war. But I don’t remember which. We also went to the zoo and saw panda bears! We didn’t stay long because it was about to rain. But it was my first time seeing a panda bear. We also got to see a lion roar. We saw monkeys and elephants. The penguins were closed so we didn’t go there.
We saw the MSU football game with alumni group and we won against Purdue. We also went to the Air&Space museum. Which we saw the Discovery Space Shuttle. A lot of war planes. We even saw the space ship which the guy jumped out then landed back on earth. I saw and learned a bombing plane that dropped a nuclear bomb on Japan and only two nuclear bombs have been blown off.
The next day we went to the Arlington Cemetery. We saw the memorial for the hidden soldier. Also every hour they change their guard and we saw that. The cool thing is there is always someone out there even in storms. We saw all the other memorials to which was really cool. I like Abe the best cause you can run up the stairs and run back down and Abe is huge. After that day we went back home and did are home work that we missed over the 4 days of school we were gone. My favorite was the spy museum. The thingg I liked the most while learning was the engraving.

I have started playing soccer for my school. I was really bad when I started then I got so much better. But I was happy I made the team in the first place because tryouts were hard!
We just played our last game, and we won 4 to 3 in penalty kicks. We scored a goal in the first five minutes of the game. Then we kept it up till the last two minutes. Then they scored a goal. Then we went to overtime. No one scored. Then we went to shoot outs. We had the shot first and we made it. We were all happy that first time. Then they got a goal. Then we missed then they missed. After we made and they missed. Then we made it again then they made it. Then all of it led up to this goal. This person named Santana shot the ball going into the goal and we started running off the field. We were all so happy. Our coach told us before the game if we win this game we can go to Golden Corral.
Our school is not very good at sports but we are the best at education. So that’s we were happy cause it was our first win (in the season). Union park (who we were going against) never won a game either this season. Also I knew someone on their team. His name is Edwin, he was at my school last year. Even though we won one game I still got better and had a great time. Now volleyball!!!
Arbor Ridge Soccer team after their first big win!
Michigan State (MSU) has been decent this season so far. First we went against Jacksonville State and we won 45-7. In the first quarter we had 21 points. In the 2nd quarter we had 17. In the 3rd we only reached one touch down and Jacksonville reached 1 touchdown. Finally in the 4th no one got a touchdown.
Then we went against Oregon and we had a tough loss 46-27. In the first half we got 24 and Oregon got 18. In the second half MSU got 3 and Oregon got 28 points. People said before the game it would be like the rose bowl.
Then we went against Eastern Michigan and we won 73-14. In the first quarter we got 28. In the second quarter we got 21. In the third MSU got 10 and EMU got 7. In the final quarter we got 14 and EMU reached another 7 points. That was a record game for Michigan State.
We just went against Wyoming. In the first half we got 41 points and they got 14. In the second half we got 14 and they got 0.
The next game we had a tougher game. It was against Nebraska. In the first quarter we got 7. In the second quarter we got 10. Leaving Nebraska to 0. But in the second half we didn’t do so good. We got 10 more points and they got 22. It was scary but we still won 27 to 22.
When I grow up I hope to be playing on Michigan State. I would want to be a HB or WR.
