Spring Break

As soon as spring break started, it seemed like the winter weather came back. It got a lot chillier over the weekend, so we are all cooped up indoors. This spring break is mostly prime time to shop for clothes for  India. This week has been fairly boring, but it allows us to catch up on things I've been slacking on. Like my blog. How have your weeks been going?

Heat Wave!!

Spring has finally arrived, and with it, a completley new set of temperatures. It is very hot over here, which is very unusual for spring here in Illinois. Here are two poems for you the first is a gmeral poem:

Flowy, Breezy, Nice and Easy
Winter gone, but Summer Still Arriving
Green Grass, Flower Buds, April Showers
Warm, Warmer, Warmest
Spring Has Arrived

The next poem is a little different. It focuses on two opposites instead of one particular thing.

Cold, Dark
Wet, Depressing, Bare
Snowy Days, Rainy Days
Grassy, Warm, Bright
Hot, Sunny

I know I have been neglecting to write recently, but I have great news to share with all of you!
I qualified for the Regional Science Fair in January. The fair was today. I had lots of fun and made many new friends. I got judged 4 times by my main judges, special judges, and even parents who wanted to know more about my project. There were almost 600 people there, but me and my 3 friends were chosen to go to the State Competition. To qualify for state, we all got scores higher than 103. We will all hopefully be going to Champagne, Illinois in May for the competition. I almost got a perfect score!!

Thank you all so much for believing in me! Your prayers and love are all greatly apprectiated!

Long Time No Post...........

Hi everyone! It's been a long time since I posted last! This week we did our standardized testing and it has been pretty easygoing. We are planning  a traditional 8th grade dinner dance, and mom is doing the goodie bags, so she has been very busy as well. We reached 100 days till the India trip on Monday!! Other than that, it's realllly boring over here.

This week I have been spending extra time with my story, so I decided to let you read the first paragraph:

My name used to be Annika Luisa Matthews.

I lived in a big brown house on the corner of Oak Street and Acorn Boulevard.

I used to have a big family. I used to have a mom, a dad, an older sister named Annalisia, the little twins Nate and Eve, and the new baby Genevieve Lea.

 I used to go to St. John’s junior high.

I used to never be afraid.

But I’m different now.

But I’ll never forget that day that my life changed forever.


What did you think? I know it's very vauge, but I don't want it to give too much away. Comment with any suggestions!!
