“Wake up Andrew, Almost time to leave.” Mom said as walking away from my door. I 've never been so awake and excited in my life. This is the first time we’ve ever gone to Gatlinburg Tennessee. The trip there was around 14 hours, stopping at a hotel on the way down. Finally The long ride was over. We saw the sign “Welcome to Tennessee” it stated, We have finally arrived.
My most significant 4-H accomplishment is when I was about 9 years old when I first began my 4-H career. Growing up my mother had told us about the time she was a kid. She had been in 4-H and had shown cattle for many years. I thought that was very interesting and thought I should try it. My mom is my hero so I wanted to follow in her footsteps. We started going out to my grandparents’ house everyday to learn how to show and take care of the cattle. It was a very fun experience and I had learned so much about cattle. The fair was about to begin in a few days so we had to take the cattle in early before the fair actually started. The cattle were loaded up with all of the supplies and we were ready to go to the fairgrounds. I thought it was

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." -Pre. Cross Country is a sport that requires pushing oneself through immense pain to achieve a goal. I never wanted to go through any of those pains to achieve anything. I used to think that I was going to participate in an after school activity for fun, but then my cross country team won the state championship meet, now I know I can do anything I put my mind to.
As a student, I have grown in my skills for academic success by having to write an essay in my Honors English class. We’ve recently finished reading the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and were told to write an essay about one of the given prompts. Before having to write this essay, I was struggling with the type of vocabulary and perspective, which was third-person, I was supposed to use. I had to find the right quotes from the book and explain in detail how they support the prompt, I felt that was the hardest for me. The words “I” or “me” weren’t allowed in the essay, unless they were in quotes. I never wrote anything without writing my thoughts on the subject. Also, the language that is used in the book made it even harder for me to understand what was really going on in the novel, which made the essay harder for me to write. This was the first time writing an essay like this, so it was difficult to me for that reason.
It was a cold winter night in Upstate New York. My mom and dad were enjoying a cup of coffee, my sisters were playing video games, and I was editing a few pictures on my computer. My mom brought up the idea of a vacation. She said” We haven’t been on a vacation for a long time”. We all agreed and were hoping for my dad to also agree. Then my father said with a cheerful voice “Where do you guys want to go for vacation”. Me and my sister Rahma wanted to go to Florida, but, my other sister Selsibila wanted to go to California. Since Florida is closer and most of us agreed on going to Florida my parents said, “Ok then Florida it is” and we all ran to our rooms to pack up our stuff. My father quickly went on his computer and started looking for a rental. After we packed up all our stuff my dad said” Everyone go to bed, so we can wake up fresh in the morning and get the trip started”. So, we all went to bed. I can barely sleep thinking about all the fun were going to have. After about 15 minutes everyone was sound asleep and so was I.
I was excited that I couldn’t sleep. I paced around my room once, then twice, then a third time. I was thinking about what I was about to do tomorrow that would change history. My name and picture would be on magazines and online. I was going to the past.
The National Little Britches Rodeo Association is like a second family. This year’s nationals were in Guthrie, OK at the Lazy E Arena. This was the first year here and I was a little nervous about being in such a humongous and well-mannered facility. I made it to nationals in Barrels, Poles, Goats, Breakaway, and Ribbon Roping. My favorite event is poles even though I do not do well at it. My second favorite event is Breakaway because in my family, we are all ropers and all my siblings do very well at it. My third favorite event is Ribbon Roping,

According to the Mayo Clinic “ an adequate intake of water (AI) for men is roughly about 13 cups (3 liters) of total beverages a day. The (AI) for women is about 9 cups (2.2 liters) of total beverages a day”. I drank none. July Fourth of 2006 was the day I realized I did not like orange soda.
Baseball is what many call “America’s Pastime”. It is the game that never fails to bring me from the highest highs to the lowest lows. The second that you think you are the best, the game will humble you. When you are at a loss for confidence, you will do something amazing that will turn your game around. Nothing beats the smell of the spring air, the dirty pants, the laughs with teammates and the glory of winning. There are many things that I love about the game of baseball but there’s nothing that I cherish more than the memories made and the life lessons I’ve learned through the trials that I’ve faced.
The event that I have chosen is the Freedom Rides, which started May 4, 1961 and ended December 10, 1961. The Freedom Rides were inspired by the Greensboro Sit-ins, and started with 13 African American and Caucasian protestors riding buses into the segregated south to challenge the lack of enforcement to the Supreme Court ruling that segregated buses were unconstitutional. While the activists were peaceful the local law enforcement and people against their message were not. The activists were beaten at several stops along their journey from Anniston to Birmingham with chains, bricks, and bats by Ku Klux Klan (KKK) members in Alabama, and activists that were injured would be refused hospital treatment.

Then during the last week of July we booked a trip to Dollywood! We got really lucky with our reservations because all of the Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg hotels were booked. There was only one hotel we could get and it was in Kodak. It's about 10 miles from Pigeon Forge. Whenever we go to Tennesse on vacation it's usually never that crowded. I guess people were like my family booking last minute summer vacations, and tax free weekend.
“ Do you guys want to go to six flags” , asked my aunt Paula. Then I asked my mom,“ Can I go to six flags with Paula and everyone else?”My mom asked,“who’s going” I said,“ Paula,Samuel,Hans,Quejo, Jackie.” My mom said,“ Let me go talk with dad,” I said ok.” Then she came back and said,“ Yes you can go.” My mom said,“ Bye and have fun.” I got in the car, Although I thought about the scary rides, I was playing on the phone.
It was a gloomy September day and the bear hunting season was about to begin. The old farm truck was loaded full with barrels of cooking grease, assorted candy, birdseed and tubes of sticky frosting. We were to hunt four hours north in a little town called Orr, Minnesota. My family had an 80 acre lot that we used strictly for hunting. My mom volunteered to sit in the stand with me and videotape the hunt. She was excited as I to begin this new hunting experience. Near the Canadian border wildlife was abundant in many different forms and we were hoping to shoot a large black bear. I had only heard stories of bountiful black bear hunts and I was finally able to experience one of my own and make an everlasting memory.
