  •  December of 2009 - One week away, and the Lakeville North High School Marching Band  can be seen stopping traffic, on any Saturday morning with a police escort, as they practice marching up and down the street for the Orlando Citrus Parade. Our director Mr. Earp had told us (the band) that we...

  • I'm sure many of you have wanted to go out somewhere with your whole family. Somewhere, where your kids would love it, you would love it too. Well that place would be the Bay Area! Which means Hayward, CA. Hayward is a small city in California near the famous city San Francisco. It may seem a...

  • The rain came down in a thick shower and the water around our canoes seemed to splash up to catch it. The rain wasn’t cold. But is was generous with a refreshing and revitalizing soaking, even through my waterproof Frog Togs. There was no thunder, simply the excited chirping of the birds as we...

  • It was the Fourth of July 2008, and I have my face squished up against the car window. My dad, brother, aunt, uncle, my two cousins, and myself are on our way to crossing the border into Canada. I rarely ever get to see my dad, my cousins, or my aunt and uncle seeing as I live in Florida and they...

We went to visit my cousin and many different places in Peru. Before I went to Peru, I was wondering whether things...

  • I went to Oaxaca, Mexico with 32 of my closest friends and a couple of adult chaperones. Well actually I wasn’t really close friends with all 32 before we left, but during the trip I got to know most everyone well. We lived together in a dorm and hanging out with friends was a blast.   This was a...

  • My face was tear-streaked as I faced the dreaded crossing into the security check area, not wanting to say goodbye for the last and final time. We were already backing up the line with our prolonged delay, but the continued goodbyes and hugs only made me want to stay longer. In fact, I didn’t want...

  • I love to visit places I have never been before, and do things I never imagined I’d do. I had the privilege to travel with my high school dance team last year on March 20, 2009. It was my Junior year, and we got a bid to nationals located in Disney World Florida. I was honored to go, we stayed at...
