The third annual boys-only trip to Bartlett Lake was fun! When my brother and I arrived, we went down by the shore and just hung out. There are so many things to do at the lake like boating, games, fishing,and hanging out by the campfire.

Our Gpaw came a little later with his boat, then our friends went to get their boat. When we went on the boat we jumped off the boat into the lake. (It’s kind of cold!)

Ever since I was a little girl I have dreamed of becoming a firefighter. My dad has been a firefighter with the Phoenix Fire Department for almost 15 years. He loves his job, and I always have a great time whenever I come to visit him at the station.

Becoming a firefighter is a long process. To get hired, you need to pass a physical, oral and written exam. To pass the physical you need to be in great shape. You also need to become an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician). Even though college isn’t required, it is very helpful.

Yesenia Browning has ridden horses for five years. She started riding horses when she was in first grade.  For a girl at her age, she didn’t find riding horses hard. If I was her I would have found it very difficult.            

Yesenia started riding because she has loved horses since she was little. Her neighbors have horses and they teach adults and kids to ride. They even enter in rodeos.

Ever since I can remember, I have dreamed of becoming a barrel racer. I have loved horses all of my life. I got my first horse when I was 2 and I absolutely loved him.

Becoming a barrel racer takes a lot of training. You have to have a trainer and a fast and well behaved horse. It takes a long time to find the right horse. If you are just a beginner rider you don’t want a crazy horse. You will definitely want one that is well behaved. Taking care of a horse takes a lot of time and dedication.
