4th Grade Field Trip – St. Augustine


I went to St.Augustine on my field trip.   We got to go the hospital that I hated.  It was so disgusting.  But I’m not going to talk about it.  We went to the Colonial Quarter.  Also the fort and a tram ride around the city.

When we got to the Colonial Quarter we got to see a little house.  And we got to practice shooting a gun in a army line.  That was really fun.  We got to see what the stuff that people used back then.  Like kitchen stuff, and to see what they used to go to the shower.  They used a big bowl.

In the fort we got to see a canon demonstration.  The sound was loud.  Every one was scared.  There was a little room with beds and the beds were filled with hay.

And the tram ride was my favorite.  We went to Flagler College where they had a cool spiky ball fence.  They were used a long time ago if pirates tried to come on to land, the chain with the balls would line the shore and the balls would break the ship and the ship would sink.When we were on the tram we also saw a canon ball stuck in the wall to.Also we saw a statue of Ponce De Leon,he is 4 foot 11.[Small]

And I’m not going to talk about the hospital.

And for the rest the rest was FFFUUUNN!!!


This is a cannon ball stuck in the wall.


This is my class practicing shooting at the Colonial Quarter.


This is me with the spike balls in front of Flagler College.


This is me with my class with the guy who shot the cannon.


in the background you can see the statue of Ponce De Leon. That statue is actual life size and he is SHORT!


It’s all about Minecraft


**This is another post from my 9-year-old son, Brendan. I’ve given him the option of blogging once/week or reading 40 minutes on the weekends. Since he hates reading, he’s choosing to write. Which I love….I hope you do to. Much like his last blog, I have done NO EDITING!!! Please comment below – he loves to read the comments.***

The reason everyone likes Minecraft is because there’s so much adventure in it. There are so many monsters in it too. There are creepers that blow up, skeletons that shoot arrows, spiders that jump on trees and have to touch you to die, and zombies have to touch you to die.

And there are a bunch of ways to kill these monsters, with swords or pick axes or axes and shovels. But swords are mostly for killing. And pick axes are for mining, and shovels are for mining dirt, gravel and sand. Axes are for cutting wood, and hoes are made for planting. And your trying to survive with these things.

Your trying to kill monsters to make materials. Like gunpowder from creepers. Bones from skeletons also arrows. String from spiders. Feathers from zombies. And if you have have low hearts you could kill animals. And eat the food.

And it is really fun when you have something to do.
Not really fun with out doing something.
