National Twins Days 2020 happened Friday, Aug. 7 through Sunday, Aug. 9. This event occurs on the first full weekend in August each year.

Being a twin is special because you have someone that understands you. Your twin gets you through hard times and is always there by your side to help you, no matter what.

Another special part that we love about being twins is that we get to share special moments together, like our birthdays (even though Ellie is nine minutes older!)

Isabella, the older twin (by minutes!)

Hello, my name is Isabella and I have an identical twin sister named Gianna! Since National Twin Day is in the month of August, I am going to tell what it’s like being a twin. First of all, I am the older twin by three minutes, but my sister was born a quarter of an inch taller than me. Though we have a lot of similarities, we actually have a lot of differences.

 Recently I was able to attend the first Chief Science Officer (CSO) Math Festival. CSO Sahiba helped to plan the event and presented to those in attendance. Students were able to select two 45-minute breakout sessions to attend in addition to being a part of the general session for everyone. The available sessions included: Interactive Math Problems, Problem Solving Strategies, Math Theory, and Math in Real Life.

 Staying home with your siblings doesn’t have to be a nightmare. With a little creativity and compromise you can have a great week. Here’s how we schedule our week so everyone knows what to expect and how each of us can help.

Sunday: Drive-up church and taking turns calling or texting family members. At night we watch a funny movie or AFV to get everyone laughing.

Monday and Wednesday: Sprinkler play at home in the cool evening. We get to play in the water and mud and my mom gets her garden watered.

 Composting. It's important and useful for gardening Compost is made up of different things we eat. But not just anything. To make compost you can use old fruit and vegetables, for instance beans, bread, apples, bananas, etc. You also need water to make compost.

Once you have compost, some of you may ask, “Why do I need it?” Well, compost is used for plants. When you add all the right food scraps, water and more, over time it breaks down and becomes a rich soil. The soil is then used to help plants. It gives them the nutrients that then help them grow strong and healthy.

 I am American but have lived overseas and never gone to school in America, so am curious about the differences. I bet going to school in England is different from going to school in Arizona, so I will tell you a little about my experience.

In normal times, I would wake up at 7:30 a.m., eat breakfast, brush my teeth, then make the 10-minute walk to school from my home. Once I get there, we go into the classroom, call the register and put our coats and bags up. We start with maths. Yes, we call it ‘maths’ with an

 This year I had the pleasure of participating in the 2nd Annual Wizard Run. The run first took place in 2018 in Joplin, Missouri. The run is 5K, which is equal to three miles. There is a 1 Mile Fun Run you can do as well.

When you register you can choose one of four packages; Broomstick, Phoenix, Owl or Crest. You can also pick one of four colors. I chose the Crest and my dad picked the Broomstick. My shirt was green and his was red. Along with the shirt you receive a custom wand, a medal and a number bib.

 Over the quarantine time period I’ve been able to do things I was too busy to do before, such as making new recipes that previously took too much time to complete, learning fun new hairstyles, and picking up an old ukulele I hadn’t touched in years. I was also able to progress in several piano songs I had been working on for a while, and I’ve already started to finish up some cute DIY presents for my family’s birthdays!
