A Trip to Lake Michigan This year my family and some friends decided to do something different than our traditional beach vacation. We didn’t want to make the long trip down to Florida to go to the beach for a few days and then have to make the 2-day journey home. So what did we do? We decided to try out the northern beaches of the United States.

Next morning, my dad wasn’t there with us, it felt lonely, as if part of my heart was not there with me. I wanted to cry, but I knew that my dad was not there with us physically but he was with us in our hearts. As time passed, my mom asked us if we wanted to go to The United States and my sister and I were so happy, we said yes because our dad was up there.
The Stargazers were the only thing that kept me sane during the four weeks at camp this past summer. Illahee means heavenly world in Cherokee language. And for me, it has been my haven for the past nine years. But this summer was different. I was living in a rather small cabin with eight, ten-year-old girls and my best friend was not there to keep me from going crazy.
But no, she goes on these wild-goose chases.’ ” “He's been gone forever and I hardly got to see him at all yesterday. ‘ I’ll bet you took Natalie out this morning didn't you?’ ‘ That isn’t fair,’ I say, though I know better.” In conclusion, Moose also doesn’t think it’s fair that only Natalie gets to have a day with their dad.
I went on a Saturday afternoon with my brother and it wasn’t as crowded as I would imagine. We stay there for 2-3 hours because I couldn’t get the shoe I wanted.

I used to have this grudges in my heart when everything go hard that would made me wanted to blame my parent. But I can’t because I was not raise to think that way. When I come to America, I was eleven years old and no one asked me if I wanted to come it just happen in a second. I was in a cold place with extended family that I never met before and that one person who raise me and made me feel secure was still back in the country. I had to lived months without her and next thing you know I adapted and convince myself they are doing this because the wanted the best for me.
Getting down to Nebraska was harsh and the trail was dusty. The children like me had to take care of the animals. Jim, Antonia and myself became really good friends after living next door to each other for a while and we do everything together.

Me and my boys are finally leaving independence to alcove springs which is 166 miles away and will take us about 6 days. My luck is that the train in front of ours were a bunch of city people couldn't handle their animals so we had to sit there for about an hour then we finally went on our way then we noticed a problem there was too much weight so I looked inside the wagon and there was a big dresser in there with nothing in it so we had no choice to throw it out the dresser didn't really mean much but it was expensive

I actually just came back from my class’s bake sale and pie a professor event that I told you about a couple weeks ago.

A War on Three Fronts A flash of light shines in through my eyelids and burns my cornea. Muffled barrages and blasts sound through the silent ringing that overwhelms my eardrums.
