Schaidle had a horticulture class that I took my seventh and eighth grade year. It was an Explore class in which we would go outside, work on projects for the school, and keep up the Nature Center. This was something I loved doing and we got a break from book work, which was right up my alley. Picking up sticks became a common job when the parking lot remodel knocked down a lot of trees. All of the limbs went into a pile and when it grew tall we had a bonfire.
Using my old skateboard, I wheeled the anvil down to the designated area of forging, set up by my parents so I wouldn't burn down the house. The rigorous process of setting everything up took roughly one and a half hours. As I lifted the bag of charcoal, the scent of burnt wood stung my
Ladies wore yellow with dark color shoes, and men wore burgundy clothing. After Cousin Janice finished gathering us together to take snap photos, we jumped in the car, lights flashing, music blasting and drove to the parade. Parade goers were asking, “Have you seen this person or that person?” You could feel the urge of people wanting to reconnect with old friends and family they hadn’t seen in months. My cousins aren 't just parade spectators; they are full participants in the spectacle. Even Big Mama, Janice’s mom, gathers along the street waiting for the floats to pass by.

Soon my friends come to join me and we laughed and joked about how the day went and which teacher gave the most homework or what couple ended it and made a big scene in the hallway. My parents never told me to gossip but it was always fun to talk about the news around school. When the bus finally picks me up and drops me off, I still have a long walk back to my house in the heat of the
The traffic was insane and their were about a hundred cars going in all directions, but with the assistance of my uncles everyone and everything was loaded up successfully almost like we had rehearsed it. After getting out of the hectic traffic my uncle turned toward us and said “!Bienvenidos a México!” we all smiled and moments later I was fast asleep. I woke up to more honking horns as the car parked next to the curb as we exited the van and entered my aunts house where we set down our luggage and greeted everyone with big hugs. We did not stay too long because we wanted to make sure we said our hellos to everyone else before the end of the
In my grandmother’s hometown, which is a very small town, children would go to the local liquor to buy beer for their dads. Along with buying beer for their dads, the children will buy matches for themselves, and firecrackers. I remember my mother wouldn’t let me join the other children, as they lighted the firecrackers, which only lasted five minutes. After, when there were no more firecrackers, the children were lighting up random stuff on the ground. I remember when I was on the rooftop with my dad and my older cousin, as we seen little fires growing from different spots, but luckily my dad and my cousin put a stop to it.
In December we have a posada which is celebrating Jesus’ birthday it’s either a week or just a day. So later on in that month we start to ask for donations for food that we use to make burritos. The day before christmas we wake up early in the morning to prepare everything to make the burritos. We also give our time to volunteer at the food bank and help pack the food, we also donate food to them as well. My personal favorite is volunteering at the animal shelter just being with all the dogs and cats is just amazing.
Christmas Break As I saw the Twinkling lights on the christmas tree, the Christmas candles smell rush to my nose like buffalo running from a predator, and the cool, cloudy skies that make breezy wind chill I knew it was almost christmas break. I loved My Christmas break because of the Dallas Stars game, hanging out with my friends, spending time with my family, and opening tons of presents on Christmas Morning. BEEEEP!!! As a car blasted its loud ear drum bursting horn at a stop light in Dallas Texas. The reason I was in Dallas was because I was going to see a Dallas Stars game.
10 lines *Simile: “as brave as a lion” (1), “shaking like a jackhammer” (2), “coursing through my veins like blood” (3), “shouted my line like a yeti” (6), “trotted off the stage like a horse” (10) “Crayola Nightmare” I sped home from work, Running stop signs and lights like there was no tomorrow. I pranced through the door, Only to find a ghastly sight. 5 Every color imaginable was plastered to my walls. I searched the house for the
