Math

Math

Hi everyone!  This summer has been so fun!  I’ve been all over the place with my family, but this last week we went to visit the Boston Ships and Museum to learn about the Boston Tea Party.  I didn’t know what a big deal that was!  When I first heard of the Boston Tea Party I thought it was a big tea party in Boston, like I do with my Barbie’s and action figures sometimes, but it turns out it was a huge part of our Independence from England!

The Museum is super cool because they have the holograms doing a reenactment, and they have people on the ships that are dressed in real clothes from the time period!

The summer has been really fun, because I learned so much about the revolutionary time period and I’ve gotten to see so much history of our Nation.  It really gets me thinking about the courage and bravery that everyone had in that time.

If you’ve been reading my blog, or my books, you probably know I don’t like math.  It just doesn’t make sense to me.  I know that everyone says how important it is (and I tried to get a candy bar from a store and couldn’t figure out how much money to give the nice lady behind the counter), but for some reason, it’s just really hard for me.

When we went to the reenactment, they kept saying how much tea they had, how many people would have been able to have tea if it weren’t thrown over the side of the ship into the harbor.

I began to think about how courageous these people were.  I thought, “Geeze, if these people could stand up to their government, I could stand up to my math book!”

So I’m not going to let math scare me any more.  I’m going to be as brave as a revolutionary rebel was, and study math until I finally understand it!

Alright guys!  Time to go to rehearsal!  My school is doing a summer performance of “Hamilton” and I’m the lead!

Here I go!
