My family and I just got back from vacation at Point Clear, Alabama. We did a lot of water activities like water fights, kayaking, and riding water slides. We had a lot of fun at the bay and the pool.
Every day we would go see a cannon being fired to honor the veterans and the active soldiers. It made a loud noise, but there was no projectile. At the cannon firing, I learned that the hotel we were in was an old hospital. That means lots of people died there which could explain the ghost in the picture my cousin found in the lobby.

National day is the day that the United Arab Emirates was formed. National day is celebrated on the 2nd of December, but we celebrated it on 24th of November at my school. The day started with assembly. We had to stand for a very long time. We stood up just to wait for the kindergarten students. After assembly grades 3-9 watched a slide show that Mrs. Fatima made. It showed places for tourist to go and types of transposition in the UAE. Grade 1-2 students had to stamp their fingerprints on a big piece of paper. After it looked like the UAE flag. After all that we had to watch performances. The only problem was that all the performances were in Arabic but not all of us speak Arabic or understand Arabic. Then we all ate. Most of the food was dessert,which was delicious. After we ate we went home. I liked the celebration.
The NFL is an American football league. In the U.S.A. it is really popular. Usually people in the U.S.A. watch a football game every Sunday or Monday night.
There are 32 teams in the NFL. All the teams are in the U.S.A. Lots of the teams are in big cities, like New York, New Orleans, Chicago, and Seattle. There are nicknames for each team. For example, the nickname for New Orleans is the Saints.

Do you have a birthday tradition? I have a birthday tradition of making my own cake instead of buying one. The day before we bake the cake and the next day we bring the cake to the party.
The night before the party we make and decorate the cake. First, we buy decorations, cake mix, and icing. Second, we mix and bake the cake. Finally, we decorate the cake. We put the icing, M&Ms, Oreos, toys, and candles on the cake. Sometimes we have a theme, like cars, baseball, or aliens.
The next day we bring the cake to the party. We have to be careful to protect the cake. We wrap it with foil. We put toothpicks under the foil so the cake’s design will not be destroyed. Also when we are driving we have to be careful. Usually my mom holds my cake in the car. When we get to the party we sing “Happy Birthday.” After we sing “Happy Birthday” we eat the cake.
I like to make my birthday cake because it is fun and we can choose the themes that stores would not have. If it were my birthday, I would have a Star Wars cake. I would put black and yellow icing, and sprinkle a little sugar powder on the cake. I would use the black icing to make space and I would use the yellow to write “Star Wars.” I would use the sugar powder to make a hundred thousand stars. I think it would look great. I think you should try to make a cake instead of buying one.
