Molly's Column

August 27, 2014
Hi, this is Molly! How are you today? Today I will talk about all my camping trips, school, four cool facts about chickens, and my goals.

My whole summer was practically camping. Our first camping trip was at the Del Mar Fair and I already talked to you about that in my last article. We then went camping at the Ramona Jr. Livestock Fair with my pig Spitfire. We did really well and I met a lot of my personal goals. Also, a special thank you to my buyer Marshall Meyer Welding! Next we went camping at San Elijo Beach. I love the beach. It was so much fun and I worked on my surfing. Finally, we went camping at Lake Skinner with our church, St. Stephens. It was so much fun playing with friends and family. Thank you so much mom and dad for all the fun you have provided us.

Everyone had a great time fishing, roasting jiffy pop, and having campfires. Many of us enjoyed catching our first fish and swimming in the lake. We also learned to never give up when a church member, James Irwin, caught a fish but could not reel it in. It was stuck in seaweed. Finally he reeled in a big glob of seaweed and found a big catfish in it right before we were going to cut the line. I also want to give a huge shout out to my little sister, Madeline, who caught her very first fish. It was a big catfish. Another shout out to my brother Luke who had a couple of fish that got away. Good try!

This year I am in sixth grade and it is so much fun. It was not as scary as I thought it would be. I was with all of my friends in the morning. I felt so tiny next to all the seventh and eighth graders, but when I got off the bus to the elementary school, I felt so big. Sorry this is a short paragraph but I have only had two days of school. I promise a bigger article next week.

1. Did you know that the chicken was the first domesticated breed to ever live?

2. The chicken is the most popular animal breed.

3. What came first the chicken or the egg? Well we believe that the chicken came first because Noah's Ark had two of every animal.

4. Did you know that over 29 billion eggs are eaten a day?

My goal this week is to stay on top of school and to stay on top of things.

I'm soaring away for now…..see you next week!
