Winning in Ticket to Ride

4 days after the summer started Bubbe & Zayde arrived. When they were here they encouraged us to play ticked to ride. Ticket to Ride is a game that printed on the board is a map of a continent, with many of the trains and cities of that continent showing. You get a couple of destination ticket's that tell you where you need to build trains on the map.  There are 6 long Routes which need 20/21 trains to complete them. There are also many short routes that require about 10 trains to complete them. At the end when you count up your points, Every destination ticket you complete gives you a bonus of a certain amount of points. While Bubbe & Zayde were here we played ticket to ride many times, and I haven't really made an overjoying accomplishment of winning with a unbelievable score. After Bubbe and Zayde left, Immanuel and I Played together Ticket to Ride many times, and not once had I fulfilled my wish. Today I played with Immanuel Ticket to Ride and completed 10 destination tickets and finally made an unbelievable score: 166 Point!!!!!!!!. Finally I can be truly happy knowing I made the record of the family!!!!!!!!!

The Day of Birthday Parties

During the last week of School, the students were all excited about the rapidly approaching summer. Since it was the end of the year, Most of the students wanted to know who their teacher will be next year, but none of the teachers agreed to tell us who it was, despite all our pestering. On the Penultimate day of school, two of my friends organized an end of year activity for the whole class. The plans for the activity were to go to a soccer court, celebrate the parties of all the kids whose birthdays didn’t occur on the school year, and at the end to go to the pizza store and eat lunch. As planned the whole class went to the soccer court and there we celebrated all the birthdays of the kids that shall only take place in the summer. For each kid my friends organized an activity that matches the kid’s likings. At the end they did a surprise activity for the teacher, because his birthday occurred not more than a week before that day. The teacher’s liking was to play with his son, and since we were his students, it was as if we were his kids. My friend made a questionnaire of about 15 easy, hard, and medium questions. That questionnaire test’s the teacher knowledge of the kids in our class. The teacher had to get to 60 points, and every question that he answers right, he gets a certain number of points. If the teacher would get three mistakes he would had to run round around the court, and if he got 60 points, so the whole class would have to run round around the court. Aside from those 15 questions there was an extra bonus question which was worth 20 points. The teacher asked us to ask him the bonus question first. One of my friends read the question that in my opinion was worth more than 20 points: "Who will be our teacher next year?". Unfortunately, the teacher ignored that question and answered the other questions. We finished the activity around 12:30, so we went to the pizza store and bought lunch. Our teacher managed to persuade the school to pay for the pizza for us. The whole class finished the day with disappointment in our spirits, but a delicious nourishment in our bodies.
