Do you like to swim? I like swimming because Lydia first met me at the Ithaca swim club when I was about 3 years old. Also I love floating all by myself with my neck float. It makes me happy because I get splashed and I am eager for a splash. When I swim I relax because the water feels good on my body.



One goal for fifth grade is independence from adults because I like hanging out with kids without grownups. I enjoy hearing real conversations. Another target is changing the way I participate in class. I would like to do independent writing by answering questions on my own and watching you tube when I am done because then I will have a break.


For several years my family participated in ABR because I have cerebral palsy. ABR is advanced biomechanical rehabilitation which is a massage that helps muscles relax for people with cp. We rolled weighted balls on my body for a timed amount each day. It felt good but it hurt to stay still. I wish it still happened because it was good for my pain. 

The Big Screen

I look forward to watching movies in the theater. It is fun because my dad and my friend Victor go with me. Also it is fun because of the booming sound and the big screen!


I adamantly oppose Trump because he’s a closed minded republican. In particular, Trumpcare would harm millions of Americans by denying beneficial services to those in need! 


Do you know how big the Discovery space shuttle really is? I do because I recently went to the Udvar-Hazy Center. It’s an aircraft museum near Dulles airport. This massive collection includes the real Discovery. I thought it was awesome because It was huge and took the Hubble to orbit.
