Comments and Visitors!

I am getting more and more people. And I LOVE IT! So the people who are coming to my blogs please keep coming!:) And For the people who aren’t I will keep writing and keeping my posts up to date to try and get you to come to my blog! I will add widgets and links to make it interesting! 🙂 So this is what I will do to get LOTS of people to visit.

meme-GOLFING!:)

Okay, I have to create a meme for week 8 student blogging challenge. So here’s a link on what it is and how we do this. Student challenge week 8!

I think I am pretty good at golf! My family has owned a gold course my whole life. I have been golfing since I could hold a golf club. I think I have gotten better over the years. I have been golfing for about 11 or 12 years. Last year my farthest hit was 200 yards which is pretty good. Most 13 year olds can’t hit that far. Dad says when I’m older he will take me to Jamacia to one of the long drive competitions he owns. We are also having a long drive competition at our golf course. So I will get to participate in that.:)

In the summer golf is my world. I always golf with my friends. I like to have compitions with them. It helps me get better!:) Some of the people I golf with are in my class. Like Cole and Carter! And many more that aren’t in my class. One day I would like to be a pro golfer. My goal is to hit 300 yards when I’m 16.

These are the people I’m taging:  AidenB, ZoeB, Jill Clayton

GIMP BRACLETS!

This is showing how you make the loops and feed the string over and under.

This is showing how you make the loops and feed the string over and under.

This weekend I had a party. And at this party my friends from cambridge was there. She taught us how to GIMP! There was lots of skill involved. I am going to try and teach you how to Gimp giving you step by step instructions.

First you need two plastic strings.

Then you need to take the strings and hold them together. Making sure their the same lengths. Then fold them in hald.

Once you have found your centre point you take the stings and cross them in the centre. Making it an X.

Now you have to take the strings and make two loops. Then go over a loop then under a loop. with both ends of the strings.

Next you will pull it tight and if the string looks like a square and it has the stings threading through each other then you have done it right.

Then you will keep repeating this step until it is finished.

That’s how you GIMP!

I hope you were able to follow along with my insttructions. Feel free to leave a comment and ask more questions.

Favorite Food!

 

<3 tacos

<3 tacos

My favorite food would have to be TACOS!

I love tacos! They are so good because they have meat, lettuce, tomato, cheese, salsa, sour cream, and whatever else you desire. You can eat them for supper and lunch. I even have them for breakfast. They are colourful and tasty! The mix of many foods mixed together is what I enjoy about it. What’s you favorite food? Do you like tacos? 🙂

 

Here are some websites to teach you a little bit more about tacos!

I will keep Blogging over the summer!

sunIn the summer time I will  defiantly be busy! I have to help my mom with her restaurant and my dad with his golf course! But I’m hoping I can make time for blogging.

I would like to keep blogging because I think it’s fun to update my blog and see what other people say about what you do. I like when people comment on it. Some give tips and others comment because they like what I’m doing.

So I’m hoping to blog over the summer! And I hope you do too!

FLY AWAY LITTLE BIRDS!

You may be asking why I so randomly posted something with the title “Fly Away Little Birds.” That is my title because birds MIGRATE! In case you didn’t know. Geese are one of the animals that migrate. First of all migrate means the animal goes away then comes back. Geese go to the south in the winters and come back in the summers. They need to stay in a warm invironment so they migrate! And this is why birds migrate.“TYPE=PICT;ALT=migrating_geese”
