Cliff Jumping at Smith Lake If you think jumping off a diving board is fun, you should try cliff jumping. At the end of the summer (2015) my family and I went to Smith Lake, Alabama. We had heard about this beautiful lake from some friends of ours who had went recently and loved it. After we had heard about the lake once we kept hearing about it more and more. Nothing ever said about the lake was bad, so my mom decided to look it up.
The view was breathtaking, there was a giant waterfall we used to jump from. We would all play in the water together, there was no such thing as girls play in one side and boys in the other everything was one and the same. After an entire day at the river, just when you thought everyone was worn-out and ready for a long nap, we were all rushing to get home to play baseball. Girls and boys from the neighborhood would gather together, in a deserted field at five in the afternoon to play baseball all night long. This was the life I lived in Cuba full of joy and freedom.
Wyatt will never forget the beach, and he will definitely not forget the smile he had from ear to ear ☺ (Hyperbole), that is why it is a great word to put into the title. Shelley Noble uses the two most powerful words for the title that mean the world to Wyatt and he sure will never forget the words ‘forever beach.’ The title in this book was an amazing fit for the story in general. The author used only two words, but the words had such meaning to the story that is all she needed to write. Sarah and Leila are going to be together forever, they can go to the beach with other families and be free, and Wyatt is in Leila’s life forever now because of the beach scene ☺ (Full Circle Ending). That will always be their family forever
We stay ready and vigilant, trying to stay stationary throughout the race. This year the weather and sea state was good, allowing more swimmers to make it to the finish line at Hemingway’s Restaurant on the eastern shore. We were needed by two swimmers this year. They all seem to come aboard with disappointment and resignation and we bring water and a towel and whatever else we have to offer them. Finding a place to sit, they settle in to wait for the end of the race, when our boat won’t be needed on the water anymore and we can take them to the marina where their supporters wait to console and offer solace to them.
"The Revolution Will Not Be Supervised" by Hannah Rosin is an article written for The Atlantic and is about parenting. The article is in the subject of how overprotective parenting has changed our kids over the past few decades. In my opinion, parenting should not be as overprotective as it is now, and kids are suffering from this. This article is very well written and there are definitely parts I both agree and disagree on. The statement, "The idea was that kids should face what, to them, seem like "really dangerous risks" and conquer them alone.
There were times when I felt completely fed up with him; especially when it came to making the lunches because he would always wake up late despite me telling him to wake up earlier to help. My experience is similar to the story since in both cases, women are expected to cook food for the rest of the family. Also, in both cases, the person we relied on left the house and the rest of the family was exposed to a new situation and had to figure out a way to continue through their daily lives without the help of the person that left. After that, we gain a sense that we should not always take someone’s actions for granted and we should show more gratitude to the person who has done many things for us. In conclusion, we might not always know what we should be grateful towards, but when it comes to the people who are always there for us, we should at least let them know in one way or
We went to dinner an hour or two after going kayaking. That night we had spaghetti, salad and for dessert we had a popsicle.During dinner we got bad news. We had to leave early due to weather changes. Later that night we got to go night snorkeling. I couldn’t handle going night snorkeling because it was a little scary, and it felt like i couldn’t breathe.
I went to the beach and went swimming almost every day. When I didn’t want to walk to the beach I could go to the back yard and jump in the pool we had. And at night when the pool started to get cold I could go on the upstairs balcony and get in the hot tub. The pool had lights in it but the hot tub had lights and jets. While I was down in North Carolina we went to a place with big sand dunes.
The only reason why is because my mom and I were the only ones to stay and watch the fireworks and the sight of the castle and the fireworks and the same times was like a piece of art work! My mom said to me, “This was probably my favorite part about the trip!” We had one more day left in Florida before we left. We went to the CoCo beach. That was my first time going to a real beach. It was so cold, but we all still went in the water.
