It took nearly two hours to push him in the wheelchair down the trail to our fishing spot. Once we finally arrived there the fishing was amazing. We had so much fun we lost track of time. When we decided to head back to the truck twilight was upon us. I tried hard to not let my husband know that I had been extremely scared while walking back in the dark but nevertheless, he could sense the fear in my voice as we discussed the consequences of not keeping up with the time.
My trek first began sophomore year of High School when I heard about the infamous "Appalachia Mission Trip." When students talked about this trip, you got the impression that they had gone to New York City for a weekend bachelor party. As soon as I heard the upperclassmen guarantee it was the most fun they've had on school trip, I knew I had to experience it myself. As it turns out, I had no idea what I was signing up for until we had our first meeting. The intimidating 6 foot 10 inch Kyle Goldcamp, Ex-minor league basketball player and head of the Lasallian Ministry department, was the first to talk about the responsibility and hard work this trip entails.
James where did you go last year ,said I Oh I went here it’s not that bad but the teacher’s love me so I can get away with almost anything. Hey guy’s what time does the bell ring said Mike At 8:00 why do you ask i said Because its 7:58 We all went into a race car mode and rode our bikes as fast as possible once we got to the door’s we were in a all out sprint into the door and then to our classes good thing mine was close or I would have been late like the rest of them. They had got there first day of school which had to suck because you only get three a semester. We all met at the same spot we did before school. Hey Drake you still scared asked James.
“Alright we have our group” yelled Ethan as usual. The trip was long but it didn’t feel like it because we just talked the whole time. “Alright listen get off the bus single file and the captain will let you know where to go once your in your groups.” As we board the ship I heard the teachers say something about danger but I ignored it and followed my group. So the captain put each group in a boat cabin it had a bathroom and enough beds for each group it was like a hotel room but on a ship. It was around nine o’clock and the shaporon came down to tell us to calm down and get ready to sleep.
We were both thinking about it so when we got home we both started to sing her favorite song and somehow it gave us a sense of peace and relief. Immediately after we entered the house it began to hail and the noise of the ice pelting against the roof was the sound of a drum growing louder and louder. I had to stay strong for my sister, and I couldn’t show any sign of fear even though inside I was terrified to. After I had fixed dinner and tucked Catalina into bed the storm seized. I didn’t want to walk outside to see the damage of the storm so instead I went to sleep.
There we were almost time to go to High School, the last time I’m going to see my friends in middle school. To celebrate one last time we all are going to banquet so we can one last time of fun. Our banquet was at the Hilton Hawaiian Village where they have resturant, music, stores, beach, and a hotel where everybody is going to stay. The problem was it cost a lot of money, it was about $41 but my mom paid because she works there.
Bill and Sam were not prepared or committed to their situation which led to awkward or hysterical situations. “I…….. of all nerve’ but i looked at bill who had the most dumb look on any animal. ‘One more night and he’ll drive me crazy.’” The irony of the kidnappers having to pay the ransom amuses the readers. ‘I……. of all nerve.” Shows how appalled Sam was about how the situation had turned from bad to worse.
The Summer of 2014 changed me, along with California, I went on a mission to Seattle and spent 2 weeks back packing. I went into my junior year with full forces studying hard for my ACT, becoming president of clubs, running varsity cross country, taking second in tennis and realizing I wanted to break out of Montana and go out of state for college. My past was my past and I would not change it for anything because it made me who I am today. I had found that same sassy, and independent two year old mentality I had
For the most part, entering middle school is an event either desired or dreaded. In my case, it had been anticipated since third grade at my old school (in Wisconsin). Many of my friends had siblings in middle school and the stories they shared were almost unbelievable. I learned of Jr. High trips to the Appalachians and Washington DC, along with camping trips, canoeing jaunts, and an expedition through the Milwaukee Zoo. By the time I entered sixth grade, I was not sure if much would immediately change in my daily life.
When I got home that day I ran off the bus all the way down to our house and was so excited to tell my parents about my day. “I had the best day ever. We got to do a lot of cool things and I met a lot of new people!” I said to them. My mom said, “ I told you, you would have a fun first day of fifth grade. I’m glad that you had
I thought it was going to be a group of about ten. After we went over the rules we had to board a bus to the river itself, which was about forty minutes or so. After we had made there we were all told to get into a raft and sit on the edges but, of course my dad was in charge telling us all what to do. After, we had done a couple of rapids it was finally time for a swim break, of course I fell out and the water was freezing cold! As soon as I got back in I was back right
One freezing February Saturday, I needed wake up at six in the morning to go play in a volleyball tournament. The rest of my family was in Arizona and had left me in Iowa Falls, so I wouldn 't miss my finishing tournament of the season. I wasn 't jubilant about it, but I agreed anyway. My grandma drove me up to Dike New Hartford High School. There were 10 other teams from all around Iowa.
Henderson was injured while hiking the Appalachian trail when he decided to get off the trail which resulted in him slipping while crossing a stream causing him to break his leg. When this occurred it became a fight for survival. He created a splint from sticks, and string and crawled his way to a main road of the trail while pushing his 40 pound pack with him. “I never doubted that I would be found. I got discouraged sometimes, but I figured that I had plenty of food and thought that if I could get back to the
The Carolina Day Key Middle School went on an overnight in September 2015 at a place called Camp Timberlake for Boys. All of us got to know each other well. On our last day a few of our canoes flipped over while on the French Broad River. One of them was Lacy, Aubrey and Mr. Flamini’s canoe. Lacy and Aubrey’s canoe flipped over when Mr. Flamini tried to clamber in.
