Hello Readers,

You probably already know this about me but I love soccer. Last year I did a soccer camp called  Upper Island Riptide. I had lots of fun and learned a lot in that camp. I am on the Comox rep or select team. There are two teams on the rep team. We have lots of games and practices. Our team is in the top tier which  is good but we have to play the hardest teams. We only play teams from  Nanaimo witch is annoying driving there every week.

 This year I am doing a soccer camp called  Rush. Lots of people on my soccer team have done Rush and they recommend it so I’m trying it out. I am not doing Riptide this year though.

I used to like Messi but I don’t like him as much anymore. I like Ronaldo and Neymar. I like Ronaldo just a bit more though. My favourite team is Real Madrid, the team that Ronaldo plays on. I think almost all of the players on Real Madrid are good but the players I like most are Ronaldo, Rodregiez, Navas, Benzima, Ramos, Marselo, and Kroos. Sadly, Rodrigeuz is not on Real Madrid anymore, though. There are plenty of different leagues out there but the main ones are Laliga, Ligue 1, Serie A, Premier league, MLS, and Bundesliga. My favourite team from Laliga is Real Madrid which is my overall favourite team, my favourite team from Ligue 1 is PSG. One of my favourite players is on PSG. My favourite team from Serie A is Juventus because they are the best team in Serie A. my favourite team from the Premier league is Manchester city because I think that they are a really good team but not the best. my favourite team from the MLS is Toronto FC because my sister lives in Toronto. and my favourite team from Bundesliga is Bayren Munich witch is the team Rodrigeuz is on now. Also Bayren Munich is the best team in Bundesliga.

I hope you learned about my soccer and the soccer I like to watch.

Places I Want to Go

Hello readers,

If you read my “About Me” post you would know I love geography! This post is about a winter wonderland. Can you guess what it is? It’s Finland and yes it is a winter wonderland.

Facts

Finland is the third most sparcely populated country after Iceland and Norway with only 17 people per square kilometer. Finland is the country with the most lakes with a whopping 187, 888 lakes and also 179 888 islands.

They have a funny contest call the wife carrying world championship where husbands carry their wives. The course is 250m and goes through water and over obstacles. They also hold other weird sports such as mosquito hunting.

Why I Want to go There

In the winter there is loads of snow and I love snow. The activities you can do in the snow are snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding. The sleds are pulled by husky dogs or reindeer. The Northern Lights are visible 200 nights per year. You can even do an overnight trip to see the Northern Lights. On those trips you can even have a sauna! The Finnish people love to have saunas. Finland just seems like a great place to go in the winter!

Halloween!

 

Hello everybody!

The Poppy and the Stormtrooper.

As most of you know that Halloween is coming very soon. The thing about Halloween is it is my favourite holiday. The reasons are because first of all you get loads of candy. Second of all the candy is free! Oh, just forgot you can dress up and stay up extra late.

This year I am dressing up the same as all my friends; we’re all being StormTroopers. Last year was a blast. I was Yoda from Star Wars. We got about one big pillow sack per person! Isn’t that so crazy.

This year our route includes a little bit of trail through the forest. We are very scared if we see would a clown in the small trail because we have been watching scary clown videos on YouTube such as Top Ten Scariest Clown Encounters or Top Ten Scariest Clown Attacks.

I think that this year we will have a great Halloween and get loads of candy.

P.S. What are you being for Halloween.
