When most people think of swimming they think of the easiest stroke freestyle. Also known as Free. When I think of swimming (my favorite sport in the whole world) I think of the beautiful butterfly. Looking so strong but still very smooth and fast. Butterfly is the hardest stroke but in my opinion the best stroke invented. You feel like you are flying through the water. Lets go back some years and find out who started the stroke of butterfly.
The beginning of butterfly was when a swimmer took breaststroke legs and added it to butterfly arms. This is what it looked like. The old butterfly. The first coach to teach the stroke was David Armbruster of the University of Iowa in 1933. He first started with a breaststroke kick as you can see in the video. Later in 1935 a swimmer changed the breaststroke kick to a dolphin kick with an up and down movement.
Today butterfly is one of the fastest strokes. You swim it with your head down and try to stay as low on the water as possible. The evolution of butterfly has made a huge change in swimming. It’s sad to think that the person who started a stroke is not as well known as the athletes that swim the stroke. If you would like to learn more about the topic of swimming then go to this site.

Yesterday was a lot of fun! Our class got to write limericks. What made it even more fun was when, My teacher Mrs. Smith read a few limericks from her previous class. Some of them were really funny but, a few were outstanding. When Mrs. Smith was reading aloud I was thinking there was no way a 6th grader could of thought of this. So I went on the trusty internet and found the exact same limericks a student wrote. Here is one I wrote about Sahil.
If I could give a gift to Greg I would give the gift of common sense. It would help him realize that you get popular and have more friends by being nice and not judging people for who they appear to be. I think Greg will love this gift because in the long run it will really help him.
A brain tumor is a collection of cells. Tumors are formed when cells reproduce too quickly creating a lump. It is a scary disease that can even kill somebody. I had a close family friend who was diagnosed with brain cancer and lost the fight with a brain tumor.

After my step dad hit me and my mom was sent to a hospital. I was relocated to a foster home. I now live with the Murphys. Ever since I left my home town “Vegas” I have been cared for and loved by the family that took me in. The sad part is I have been caught up in my own world, I have never registered that the people around me love me. My one little word Is register. I will work harder to take the hugs I need and cry a river when my love ones are hurt. I will register the love that filled my empty heart.
This month I have really been into the book H.I.V.E. It is and action packed story with a new twist for every chapter. The main character “Otto” is a supper villain. He is transported to The Higher Institute Of Villainous Education (H.I.V.E) and learns how to fight and cover most of his tracks. While at hive he meets Wing. Wing later in the story is like a brother to him. He fights to make sure that Otto stays alive, they even turn out to be roommates. During the adventures that H.I.V.E. has to offer you will be introduced to allot more characters like Laura, Shelby, and the head of the school, Dr. Nero. Then when you finish the first book and want something to read you can move on the the second and third book.
