Sandusky Hughes here. Hope this finds y'all well!
I just finished my homework (did it on the bus. Math, also a little reading), so the evening is free. There wasn't a lot of it and I am glad for that beacause it means the weekend is free! YES!!!!
I am in the sixth grade now. That means we're the top guns of elementary school: all the littler kids/lower grades have to look up to US. That is a great feeling! :)
My teacher is Mrs. Johannes this year. She's not bad as far as teachers go, but I will miss staying in one classroom. Next year, in seventh grade, we start the "switch classes" routine. That is going to be a pain; I don't relish the thought of getting lost between classes! And , from what I've been told, middle school is rather huge.
The weather is coolish, with temps in the sixties and seventies here (east of us it is in the seventies and eighties with partly sunny to mostly sunny skies). Rather nice, but it's a sign of things to come. I also saw the first leaves starting to change colors, which means fall is not far behind. (And it isn't : as a matter of fact, fall starts next week, on the 21st of this month.)
And Christmas is less than four months (12 weeks away)! Can you believe it already???? Man, this year flew by fast!!!!
I had a good summer: we went to Galveston the week after I got out of fifth grade; it was a BLAST!! I LOVED it!! They have an amusement park there (Pleasure Pier) and they have some killer rides; the Iron Shark was the BEST!! I absolutely LOVED it!! I'm gonna have to ask Mama and Daddy if we can go back to Galveston for Thanksgiving break!
Besides the amusement park, we went to the Rain Forest Cafe', which is this really cool restaurant, saw the Elissa tall ship, went to the Great Storm (a movie about the Great Galveston Storm of 1900; that was sad), saw Moody Gardens, romped in the Gulf of Mexico, hunted for crabs and seashells, and shopped at Murdoch's, among other things. Galveston is awesome!!!!
The only bad part about summer was whe Sawyer (my 8-year-old brother) broke his arm after falling off the shed in our backyard. He busted it in three places, even had to have surgery. He just got his cast off last week. His arm is all white and puny looking. But he is glad to be rid of that cast at last. So are we because whenever we went anyplace, people felt sorry for him.
Sawyer got all the attention and even got some extra gifts. That was a pain!
Whoops! Gotta go; Mama made chili for supper, as well as mashed potatoes and a cuke and lettuce salad. The chili smells delicious! I will write in here again soon; until later, this is Sandusky Hughes saying so long and may God bless you always!
