First Day at the Institue
This morning all the students went to our district at four am. I wasnt very tired because i was up all night. Our plane left at six fifteen and arrived at the same time too, then we went to Corvallis from Portland. I was exausted by the end of the day.
Today at the challenge course it was very fun. I got on the zip line and have lots of fun. Then also on others high courses but there was one called the leap of faith. I was determined to grab it. I tried three times and each time i got closer. The first time I was close but I didnt touch it. The second time I touched it with my finger and the third time one of my hands slipped off. I liked how everyone cheered for me and it made me want to try harder.Over all the challenge course was lots of fun. I learned that when working as a team you need lots of communication in everthing you do.
Today as a team our group accomplished many things. We came up with a cheer and built a pyramid with all of us. One of the activities that I liked was the last one we did. We had a rope with many knotes and our goal was to untangle the knotes without us letting go of the rope. We all held the rope with our right hand and never let go. We accopmlished it at the end.
All day yesterday we went to the coast. We left in the morning and came back in the evening. That was my first time going and I liked it very much. I spent it with my friends and with new friends that i met. Before going to the coast we went to the Oregon science marine place. Which was very fun. We disected fish which was nasty but fun. After that we went to the aquarium. We saw different fish and birds. I liked taking pictures of all the different animals and things that they had there. There I bought a bracelet to keep as memory. I also paid a dollar for a picture of our group. I now have another one of all the places we went to. After the aquarium we stoped for lunch and after we headed to the coast. I wanted it to be a nice beautiful day on beach but it was kinda cloudy and a bit chilly. Even though it was like that I had a ton of fun. I didnt take any shorts or a bathing suit so i didnt get in the water. I rolled up my jeans but they got wet so instead Fabi let me wear her shorts. We played soccer on the beach, wrote our names on the beach, and just had tons of fun. I now have so many memories with me. Although my camera broke for a minute and I didnt get to take so many pictures, I will always have the memories with me.
