Today is the last day of school, my fifth grade graduation to middle school AND the one-year anniversary of me writing these Friday blog posts. What a day!
I am excited and nervous to graduate from Ossian Elementary School. Mostly I’m excited but here’s why I’m nervous: I am supposed to play my recorder at the ceremony. I’m not the only one, but still … I hope we don’t screw up!
I am going to miss my teacher and my school, but I am excited to go to Norwell Middle School next year. I am going to play the trombone in the band. I am thinking about running cross country. I am DEFINITELY going out for the soccer team!
It has been fun writing this “column” — I can’t believe it’s been a whole year! I think my writing has gotten a lot better since I started. I have lots of great memories writing this, and I plan to keep doing it over the summer.
Oh yeah, we also had two softball games this week. We won one and lost one, and I got a double in both games. I play first base, just like in baseball. Our team is called the Lionesses and we have a bunch of crazy cheers. What a fun week!
