I interviewed Adam “Crack” Winrich at the Renaissance Festival. He does shows involving whips as well as fire.

Adam Crack practices two to three hours a day and has broken more than one world record, including the loudest whip crack. He got his first whip when he was about 7 or 8 years old. He says that the most dangerous thing about the job is risking cutting your skin open with a whip, especially with fire.

It was really entertaining to interview Adam Crack and I want to go to the Arizona Renaissance Festival again.

 Colorful, splash of color, vibrant, fun, joyful and interesting! These are the words I am using to describe the Crayon Experience in Chandler.

When I first walked in the big door, there was a lot of color. It reminded me of a rainbow, only a splash of color. When I arrived at the experience I saw a machine that wrapped a custom crayon. The employees gave me coins and I was able to put it in the machine. The screen allowed me to put a message on the wrapper. Another station helped put on the custom wrapper.

On March 25, eight Monster Jam trucks lined up, ready to race at the Tucson Convention Center. The floor of the arena was converted to a dirt course. The trucks waited for the go sign, and they were off! The blaring noise of fans cheering deafened the piercing roar of monster truck wheels. The smell of gasoline and burned rubber tickled my nose and fi lled the arena. It sure was a sight to see!

 I recently read the book “One Moment in Time” by Ben Lerwill and Alette Straathof. It is fun! It is like going around the globe, from USA to Australia and from Scotland to India.

Did you know that morning, afternoon, and evening happen at different times in every part of the world? This book explains that children at one moment in time are doing different activities because each of them lives in a different time zone. For example, while it is morning in Brazil, and a child is in math class, in Turkey, a child is borrowing a book from the library in the afternoon.
