Star of the week-Ariana

Halloween is my favorite time of year because we get to go trick-or-treating for candy.
I have two brothers and one sister. I love my brothers and sister when they are kind and funny.
Camping is so much fun

Swimming made me feel cold but it was fun.

Star of the Week-Thomas

Hi, I am Thomas and I am going to tell you about my summer at the State Fair. First I have to tell you that I love to oil paint.  My Papa Mike started to teach me how to paint when I was just 5 years old.  It is something special I get to share with my papa.  I like to paint pictures about stuff I am learning in school or places I visit.  Last year I painted pictures of Big Trees State Park, Africa, a hedgehog and the rainforest.  I entered 3 paintings into the California State Fair Fine Arts competition and two of my paintings won awards.  My painting of a lion in Africa got 3rd place and my painting of Big Trees State Park got 2nd place and was also awarded a California State Parks Foundation award.  It was awesome to get the special award.  They gave me a lot of cool state park stuff and also passes to go to the state parks for free.  I have already used one pass a Big Trees State Park. I even got my picture put in the California State Parks Foundation Newsletter.  You can click on the link to see the newsletter:

During this summer I also worked in my Papa Mike’s production company building county exhibits for the state fair.  It is a family business my whole family works in together.  I helped paint, clean, stock and even a little building on 7 counties.  The counties we worked on were El Dorado, Shasta, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Butte, Mendocino and Colusa county. Some of the jobs  I would do are paint big fruit, cute little crabs or frames. I would also help my mom by cleaning paint brushes or scraping paint. Once the fair opened my brother, sister and I went in every morning and cleaned the exhibits, restocked brochures and watered plants.  It was a lot of work and I had to get up early but it was worth it when I got my paycheck. Our exhibits won 1 gold and 6 silver medals and we also received a best use of technology and special effects for Monterey county. Here are some pictures of the exhibits. I hope you enjoy them.  I had so much fun and I cannot wait till I am old enough to use the power tools for building. I am the youngest contractor at the CA State Fair.

Star of the Week-AJ

Hi, I am Aj and I just got back from Hawaii.

I love whoppers and pie.  I also love apple juice a lot too.  My favorite restaurant to eat at is Bella Bru.

At Aulani in Hawaii I went on the lazy river and the water slides a whole bunch of times.  I really like science too and they have a fun science class called Stitch’s space goo where you get to make green goo.

I live with my mom and my dad my dog Pasha- she went to the Wag hotel for our Hawaii trip.

My favorite subject in school is workshop and math.  

I love minecraft and I also like the new skylanders game superchargers- i don’t have it yet but i found out there’s all kinds of new elements like earth, sea and sky.

I also love Disneyland- I built a star wars light saber in Disneyland after the star tours ride.  I love the star tours ride!!

I hope you have fun reading my post and looking at my pictures.
