Today we are getting back from Thanksgiving break. Everybody has been eating, hunting, and resting, but today we all had to get up early and come to school. Over my Thanksgiving break I played with all of my cousins and hunted. Then after I did that I finally got time to dig in to my Nana's chocolate pie. Her chocolate pie is very good, but this year she decided to try a different kind of pie it is called lemon pie. Now it is on my list of favorites along with her chocolate pie, pumpkin pie, pecan pie. We got my Aunt Meadow to taste test and she said that it was the best lemon pie she had ever tasted. My Great Aunt tried to make a pecan pie all though it didn't taste the best its the thought that counts.

We watched a play put on by the 8th grader's called treasure island. it was really cool but they didn't tell us what happened in the end of the book. Today we get out of school early for Thanksgiving break;We don't come back to school until Monday. We also don't have any other classes today. I can't wait until Thanksgiving because I'm going to spend time with my family and friends.

The Nor'easter

Last week starting Thursday we were hit by a Nor'easter. It effected us with flooding, heavy rain, and strong winds. About an hour away from us in Norfolk, VA over 200 people had to be evacuated from their homes and apartments. A famous landmark destroyed by this Nor'easter was the Lynnhaven Pier. Due to the impact on our town, we didn't have school Thursday or Friday. On Saturday my friend and I went to a college football game. When we got out of the car we could see where the water had been. Everything around the school was wet and swampy. This storm had a major impact on our region. -MLT
