Minecraft Creepers Stay Away

      My favorite activity at home is playing Minecraft on the computer. I like that you can practically do or create anything. I love to kill the stupid, exploding creepers because they blow up my hard-built house. Typically, I obliterate them with a sword or a bow and arrow. In Minecraft, which inspires me to play with my Legos, my favorite things to do are fish, play with my weapons, and play around with my armor. I don’t like peaceful mode. Food doesn’t go away. It is boring. Minecraft on the computer is super cool as long as you can keep the creepers away.

Summer Adventure

Summer days are long and hot, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. This year, create a Summer Adventure list! This is a list of things you and your family want to do before school starts up again in the fall. It could be anything from going on a mountain expedition to sleeping in until noon one day. This is a fun way to make some memories as a family and delete the old routine by having big (or small) adventures every day.
Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” ~Helen Keller
