This summer, I am looking forward to going to Maryland to spend time with my uncle and aunt and our cousin. After that we’re going to go to my Nana’s house and visit with her and go to some museums because she lives in Washington, DC, so we get to go to the Spy Museum and the American History Museum.
After that trip we’ll come home, restage and repack. Then we’ll go to North Carolina where my grandma and grandpa live and we’ll visit with them and go to some places like the aquarium there and maybe we might venture as far as the Special Operations Museum.
After that, me, my brother and my pastor and his two sons are going on my dad’s aircraft carrier, the Ike, for the day. They’re going to do an air show and kind of show us around. That will be fun. Then I have some summer camps. I go to Cub Scout camp. I’m not sure what I do after that. I think it’s more calm-down stuff. We have a whole jam-packed summer with this after this after this.
I’m excited about fifth grade. One of things my teacher said we’re going to do it American History, which I’m very interested in, especially the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, World War II, World War I — all those kinds of things. We’ll be the top grade in the school and need to lead by example. But then, a year later, we’re in middle school and back to being the kindergartners of middle school.
Why do you like history so much?
Because I have a long line of family members who have served in the military. I mean, I could have this big, long book. My dad’s relatives were Tuskegee Airmen, worked for Tuskegee Airmen, and one of them got captured by the Russians in World War II and didn’t come back until 1946. Then, on my mom’s side of the family, my grandpa was in the military. His dad served as a captain in World War II. I could write this big, long book about everything.
