It was a hectic day. My friend had to call and have his grandparents pick him up which took about 45 minutes because they lived kind of far away. During that time, my dad told me “pack your bags, we need to go visit your grandmother” I remember that I didn’t pack much because I couldn’t think. My mom immediately booked us plane tickets to Portland. It was super close but we made the flight.
Florida This year my family went to Florida. It was our first family trip, and my only trip that I actually got to go on a plane! My grandpa was over at our house and he was giving my mom some flowers to put out on our patio, and I was in my room. When my mom and grandpa started a conversation about Florida.
It was really cold. I checked the forecast and the forecast stated that it was going to get colder later too so I grabbed my notebook and pencil and headed out before it got worse. It was frigid cold out there. I sat on the grass, shivering, and waited.
I got out of bed and grabbed some breakfast pancakes, bacon, and some orange juice. It was delicious. After breakfast, my uncle, grandpa, brother and I loaded up the boat and got on the road. We were headed for Mille Lacs Lake. After about an hour of driving, we pulled into the boat launch and backed the boat in, then my grandpa got bait from the bait store by the launch.
I was extremely happy to celebrate with my dad and sister. However, it was a humbling experience to know how different the world is, and at the same time, how similar our lives are. Traveling can be critical but, what makes it interesting is the adventure, food and companionship, and new things.
My Declaration of Independence When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to completely abolish my doubt. I will not let the pressure consumed by doubt suppress me from living my life. Doubt has already altered my life so much but I will not give in anymore. I hold these truths to be self-evident that as a person my life should not be delayed because the doubt adapted by me and the people around me.
My family was moving to Oregon for my Papa’s job. Papa works as a trader which meant we moved a lot. But once we get to Oregon, Papa plans to find a new job. Anyway, on with the story. First we had to pack only the important stuff in the wagon.
After years and years of tyrannous oppression from the Mother country, the American colonies were ready to be rid of the British monarchy, so much so that in 1776, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence. But the Declaration was not perfect, even after several revisions and rewrites. One major imperfection was its call for equal rights for all men when Africans were still being used as slaves, and it did not state that that would change once the Americans were free from British reign. This one imperfection would cause conflict between the states and their citizens for years. While this issue should have been dealt with and would have best been dealt with in the Declaration of Independence, the southern states would

Canada’s Defining Moment: D-Day Canada played an important role in World War I as they showed great perseverance, courage, and gained decisive victories as shown in the Battle of Vimy Ridge. In World War II, Canada failed to disappoint once again in their contribution to the Battle of Normandy. During that time, Germany had invaded northwestern France and the Allies, which includes Canada, planned on liberating them. The Allies prepared a plan to mislead the Germans into thinking they were not going to invade through the coast of Normandy. Fortunately, the operation to deceive them was a success and the members of the Allied Forces landed on their designated areas.
Ok, so it's your turn to host this year's 4th of July party. As we all know too well, the downtime between eating and watching the fireworks can be a long and arduous one, especially if your party guests have children. So, to bail you out of hours of boredom and the thought of never being asked to host another 4th of July party, below are a few "themed" party games to entertain the masses.
Was the Declaration of Independence really accurate? Was it really true? In Source A, written by Thomas Jefferson, it shows a document stating that all men are equal. Source A, has four different parts to it. Source B is written by Abigail Adams and demonstrates how woman do not have enough rights as the males do. In Source C, written by a former slave, discusses how slaves didn’t have equal rights compared to others. Additionally Source D, is a video of John Adams that covers both Continental Congresses and why they occurred. Therefore, the Declaration of Independence is hypocritical because all men were not created equal.
We watched the other teams play and there were some good games. We all go back to the hotel and swim in the pool to celebrate our big win. The coaches ordered pizza and we all just had fun. Then the next day we had to check out of our hotel, after we ate breakfast. So after the long 3 days of baseball we had to head back home
The Revolutions aren’t always successful. Certain things can help a revolution become successful such as exchange of power, support of the people, and different governments. If the outcome of the revolution isn’t what you set out for, it isn’t successful. The American and Haitian Revolutions were successful. The Haitian Revolution succeeded with ending slavery and the French control over the colonies. The American Revolution succeeded with the colonies declaring their Independence.
