Thanksgiving Plans by Will

Over Thanksgiving my family and I are going to the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida. Universal has two theme parks: Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios. We are staying at the Hard Rock Hotel which is right next to both parks, so you can easily walk from the hotel to the parks in a couple of minutes.

Theme parks are one of my favorite things, so I am very excited, especially because Universal is the best theme park in my opinion. In fact, Universal is my favorite place in the whole world. Below is a picture of the hulk roller coaster in Islands of Adventure.

Community Service by Will P

For community service I went gleaning at a small farm in Raleigh, NC. I did not think that it would be that fun but we made our own fun out of it by racing to see how many bags of potatoes we could fill.

Over the past four summers my family and I have traveled to different countries to do service. The service has ranged from teaching English at a school for middle/high school kids whose parents cannot afford to have them in China, to digging up the ground and putting in pipes at a very poor school in Costa Rica. My favorite part of these vacations is playing with the kids. Playing football (the American version) in Costa Rica, playing soccer in Honduras and Peru, and basketball in China. After gleaning I realized that there are people in need right in our own community.
