What I do when its a snow day…

We got about 8 inches of snow in our yard! That’s a lot. My brother and I were outside playing out in the yard with our dog Laddie then we got an idea. To have an ultimate snowball fight with our own two forts. So we did and it and it went well (I think) but I did write about our comparisons and differences in our forts. Here are some things I had in my fort. My fort was a lot taller and larger than my little brother’s fort, it had pre-made snowballs and two miniature snowmen that you had to knock down to enable you to win. In my fort I also had a platform I could stand on. Unlike my fort, my little brother had a trench so he could jump down and hide behind it when I was about to attack. He did not have pre-made snowballs like I did but what he did have was a sled that he could use for multiple purposes, like hiding under, he could slide down the hill and attack me, or he could also use it to store extra snow in it so he could grab a wad of snow and make it into a snowball really fast.  Me and my brother also had some similarities to our forts. We both had something we could hide behind, we both had tools we could use to build our forts with, and we also had secret hiding spots too. That is what me and my brother did outside in the snow today. Both of our forts had different components to it and some of the same.  

I actually took this picture of us while we were having a  snowball fight!

Countdown to Thanksgiving.

 

What are you thankful for? I’m thankful for the food that we have and the roof keeping us protected and warm from the chilly November nights. It’s almost that time of year. Almost time for Turkey, pumpkin pie, loads and loads of great food, and family time… (depending on how Covid 19 is affecting us). I am so excited to get a week off from school. Sometimes us smart hard-working kids need a nice long break. My family and I are thinking of going to my family member’s houses to eat ham, turkey, cranberry sauce, pie. Play games like bingo, monopoly, and card games. I also get to see some of my cousins that I have not been able to see for quite some time! Thanksgiving is two weeks away!
