It’s Phoenix – Nana’s guest blogger. I think I’ve posted about 75 blogs since I started in 2013. Nana asked me recently, “Why do you like blogging?” and I can tell you right away – I’m famous when you google my name!
So, I’m heading to Ottawa with my fellow 35 Grade 8 students. I haven’t graduated yet – it’s a bit early to know for sure! lol – but as much as I am really looking forward to this trip, I only want to go on one Grade 8 Graduation trip in my lifetime. I’m really excited because we’re going to have a great time and I’m particularly looking forward to dog sledding. In the hotel that we’re staying in, it’s four to a room so I’ll be with three of my friends. There is a curfew (11:00 pm – 6:30 am is QUIET!) but I’m thinking we might start a rebellion and stay up longer. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do on a school trip????
The other thing I’m looking forward to is eating junk food. I’m planning on packing a couple of tons. My ideal stash would include several chocolate bars, a couple of soft drinks for me and my friends and a definite MUST HAVE is pretzels. We’re also going to Snowflake Kingdom and when Nana and I looked at their website, the slides and the ice sculptures look awesome.
And then, there’s the six hour bus ride. Hopefully, I’ll get the back seats because that’s where you bounce the most.
We’re leaving on Tuesday and it’s going to be hard to concentrate at school on Monday.
I’ll let you know how it goes!
