I was inspired to do this post from Peter's Plentiful Postings. I have been collecting baseball cards for about 6 months and currently have over 300 cards. I have some very special cards like Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams, David Ortiz, Mike Trout, and many more. Some cards are recent and others are old. For example: Mike Trout is recent, and Lou Gehrig is old.
Lou Gehrig was a player on the Yankees. One month during his playing career he found out he had a deadly disease now known as the Lou Gehrig disease. Even though he could die any second he still showed up to the games and sat in the dugout with the team. He also gave speeches every game to the audience telling them that even though he was sick he will always support his team. Sadly on Monday June 2nd, 1948 he died. At the funeral they did not say any speeches, they all knew him too well.
Do You collect anything?
Do you know any historic facts on athletes?

Over the summer, my family and I took a beautiful trip to Hawaii. Their main islands are called Hawaii, Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Niihau, and Kahoolawe. We stayed on the island of Oahu. First we stayed in the North Shore then we stayed in Ko Olina. We saw many green sea turtles and monk seals. Monk seals are an endangered species of seals only found on the Hawaiian Islands. We went surfing. It was my first time surfing without my Dad helping me. Surfing is very entertaining to do. We also went snorkeling. We saw some butterflyfish, trumpetfish, humuhumunukunukuapua`as, pufferfish, tangs, parrotfish, and many more.

Today was Father's Day and we had a blast! When my dad woke up, we played a little Monoply. It took so long that we just called it a tie. Then my dad opened presents. In school we made a bird feeder for our Dads. We also purchased him some shiny nike hightops. They were red, white, and blue. Also we got him matching shorts and socks!
