Today in the car, my Mom and I were talking about the summer. I told her that when we go on vacation to Colorado I am going to read on a horse in the mountains. I want her to take my picture for this contest that we are having at school. I am also going to draw all of the things we see on our way.
My mom Shannon is Mrs. Miller the librarian at Van Meter School and she told us about this fun reading contest called Silly Summerstakes. Mom and her friend Mr. Schu want all of the kids at our two schools to send photos reading in the coolest places this summer.
She asked me where else I could read and I thought about a ton of places....on the giant slide at the Iowa State Fair, at Grandpa and Grandma's farm, on my cousin Cooper's trampoline, on our porch swing, on my cousin Cameron's swing set, on the rock stairs in our back yard, with Uncle Ryan's pigs, in my Mom's big chair (that is where I am reading with her iPad) and at the beach. I want my sister Brianna to read, write, and draw with me too.
When I told Mom I wanted to start a new journal for the summer, she thought it would be fun for me to have my own blog. She asked me what I would call it and I said, "Hagan's Summer of Awesome." We stopped and bought a new journal (my first picture is me reading on a horse in the mountains), created this blog, and I started drawing a new picture to show you later.
I hope you like what I do this summer. Have a fun day. I am going outside to play basketball now.
