Recap: I chose my grandma for a lollipop moment. She has been sad and lonely lately because my grandpa died recently. Last Thursday, I didn’t have softball practice so after school I went to her house and helped her around the house. I weeded her flower beds and got many of her garden decorations out.

- Shaun’s passions in life are snowboarding, skateboarding, and going on adventures. My passion in life is going on Lake Michigan in our boat. My hope is to work hard enough so that eventually I will be able to retire and spend as much time as possible on a boat. In addition, I also enjoy playing softball. I am able to play the sport I love with teammates that have become sisters to me. When I play softball, there is sure to be laughter even if we don’t win.
- There are two parts of social media which consist of creating and consuming. The create aspect is when you post pictures and are able to show people little bits and pieces of your life or inspire others. The consume part of social media is equally important. This part is liking other people’s pictures and commenting on people’s posts in a positive way that makes them feel good. Both give us power because you are able to share with and relate to other people
- The ‘king of the rain forest’ story helps us in life. This story is about frogs that were challenged to make it to the top of a mountain. Many of the ‘normal’ frogs didn’t make it because they could hear other animals telling them how they won’t make it. However, one frog who was deaf made it to the top because it couldn’t hear the animals telling it that it couldn’t make it to the top. This story shows us that you need to block out the people who are negative aspects in your life and keep on track to a successful life.
