Agriscience Fair Trip

     On Thursday I left for Ames with all the other Ag students. We were heading for the Agriscience fair. It took two hours to get there. When we got there we set up our displays and got everything ready. When we got done we toured the Iowa State Campus and drove around looking at the places to visit and see. When we got done we went to our hotel. We all got settled in and just hung around in the lounge area hanging out and talking. The eighth grade boys all stayed in the same room, we stayed up until midnight. In the morning Ben and I got up at five in the morning and went to get some coffee. It was about twenty or thirty more minutes until everyone else got up. So Ben and I just drank our coffee. Once we got done we got ready to go to the Hilton Coliseum. First we stopped and John and I bought a whole bunch of gatorade. When we got there we went to our display boards and got everything ready. Once everything was ready the judges started walking around asking questions. We sat at our display for over three hours. We got a break and got to go to lunch. We went to McDonalds. After lunch we sat at our displays for another three hours. We only got one judge when we got back from our break. John and I had a total of six judges come to our display. Then we got to go eat at Culver's. While we were there Joe John Ben and I ate a lot of onion rings. When we got done we went to the award ceremony. John and I got third in our division. When the award ceremony was done we got on the bus and headed for home. It was really dark on the way home and we didn't get back until 11:30.

 

Track Practice

     Yesterday during track practice we were practicing for field events. I did high jump and hurdles. One time we were running and I caught my foot on the top of the hurdle and almost fell on my face. So coach helped me by telling me to kick my leg up so that I could jump a little higher but not to high so that I don't touch the ground. You can only accelerate if you are touching the ground. We ran one hundreds and four hundreds I beat all my old times from last year so I feel good about doing that. After that we ran two hundreds and everyone was saying how they were going to puke. It was only four sprints and besides we got breaks after we ran them so it wasn't very difficult.
