This post is for my language arts class The Reading Workshop. One of my hobbies are playing football. I like football because it is a sport with a lot of contact in it. One year I was bored because I knew after baseball season I would not have a sport to play so I told my mom I wanted to play football. She said I could but it costed a lot of money to sign up, so she said if I wanted to play that bad she said I had to play 110% every play so that was what I did.
Eventually our teams first game came around and we were awesome. We played all of our games and we were undefeated but when the championship came around we lost our first game. Then I decided I would play football until I couldn't play football anymore. So far I have played football for three years and I have gotten better every year.
My team that I play on is the Logan Elm Braves. My favorite NFL team is the New England Patriots. My favorite college football team is the Alabama Role Tide. My position on our football team is Wide Receiver, Corner-back, Safety, and occasionally Middle Linebacker.
My one hobby that I really like to do is I like to go out in my woods and watch the coyotes. Now this may not sound really fun but it is to me! Sometimes I just don't see coyotes I sometimes see deer, birds and other animals! But what I do is I go outside and sometimes I will just sit in my woods or I will sometimes sit in a tree stand that my dad owns. No I do not hunt but I just like to sit there and watch them! I also have this amazing coyote/wolf call that howls! I will take that with me and when I use it the coyotes will sometimes even howl back.
Why I do it: Well I like to watch the coyotes in there habitat and how they act with there pack. I have seen the coyotes take down prey and it's all help because of the pack!! Coyotes like to travel in packs just like wolves! It's amazing to see these creatures in there natural habitat! When I go out to visit the coyotes it can be a challenge! If I don't want them to see me or smell me I have to take some time to get ready to go out. I will dress with really warm and make sure I do not smell really strong to them! But other than that it is pretty easy. Most of the time I see the coyotes but sometime I do not. Sometimes the coyotes will hunt for prey or they are just traveling around. But it is really amazing to see the coyotes like this. They are not any harm! The ones I have seen like to play with there pack!
Why it is so important to me: One of the biggest reasons why is to see how they act! Another one is to hear them! The sounds they make is amazing! I love to hear them howl and make other noices to the pack. Another great one why I like to watch them is how they act with there pack! It really is amazing on how these coyotes act. They are amazing creatures just like the wolf!!

A hobby I have is playing with my dog. My dog is a beagle he is about 2 years old. He is Red,White and Brown his name is Blue. (Zoey and Blue are brother and sister, Zoey is still missing). Why we named him Blue when he is more of a reddish color I have no idea.
Blue is a best friend and will always love to hang out with you. On Sunday Blue and I were in my bedroom and he jumped up into my lap and just sat on me for about 3 minutes. He is also a bed hog. Saturday Blue was on one side of the bed and I was on the other and he scooted so close I had about 5 feet of room to sleep on.
Blue also likes to squish me. I will be laying down watching tv and he will jump up on the bed and stand on me. He is really good at it. The other day I was talking on the phone when he jumped on me. I had to hang up. Blue is my best friend and I love him more than anything. I would do anything for him.

I love to go fishing. I try to go ever day. It is one of my favorite hobbies. But catching a fish is not what I think makes fishing fun, what I think makes fishing fun is just sitting there listening to the birds chirp and watching the grasshoppers hop. That's what I think make fishing fun. So if you ever ask me what do I think makes fishing fun, I'll just say nature!
When I go fishing at my house it is in my pond. My pond is HUGE! It has Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, and Minnows in it. I sit on a floating dock when I fish. It has two chairs on it. The chairs are tied down so that when it rains the wind doesn't blow them into the water.
But then there's the people I fish with. I fish with my dad, brother, sister, and my step-mom and sometimes my cousin. When we fish together we always have a friendly competition and see who can catch the most fish. But at the end of the day we are all happy.

I love to Wrestle. In this story I will tell you why wrestling is my favorite hobby. After you read you might just love wrestling just by the way It sounds. I hope wrestling will be one of your favorite hobbies if you try it. When I was in second grade my dad put me in wrestling. I fell in love with the sport as soon as I got to wrestle boys. I thought that girls would wrestle girls and boys would wrestle boys. When I found out we wrestle weight groups I was so happy.
In wrestling there were only FIVE girls. In third grade there were only THREE girls. I thought there would be a lot of girls but there wasn't.The first year I wrestled my sister Taneshia and my cousin were all in wrestling together but they were only in it for one year because my sister was a girly girl and Kylieann broke her color bone. So in third grade out of my family I was the only one wrestling. That year was the last year I wrestled because my left knee. One day I was in a match and my left leg just gave up. The coaches called time out so my dad had to carry me to the bleachers. The boy I was wrestling said he was sorry.I felt really bad. A little less than a year I had to go to the doctors because my knee still hurt. The doctor said I had to get a MRI so they could see what was wrong. The doctor said that I tore my Meniscus and bruised my knee. I knew right then I was not going to be able to wrestle again.
I was not okay with the fact I was't aloud to wrestle. But I knew if I take care of my knees they would get better and I could wrestle again. I do take care of my knees but over the years both knees are giving up. So I know I might not be able to wrestle but me and my knees are not on the same level. So I am not going to give up like them.
My favorite hobby is studying sharks. Studying sharks is my favorite because I really want to learn about sharks. Here are some examples.
One day I was watching t.v, and then I saw a show called Shark week. It was awesome! After the show, I looked in my book shelf and found a shark book. Now I read it every day, because It has so many facts, I asked my mom,''Can I get more shark books?''
Since 1998, there has been 8 shark attacks per year on beaches and have killed people. In 2012 there has been 24 shark attacks per year. So, I want to invent a machine the can attract and repel sharks . Sharks are attracted to vibration in the water. So, using a high frequent sound waves I can attract a shark and by increasing the sound waves, it should repel the shark.
Why is it my favorite thing? Well since I was little it's been a tradition. We have annual mud runs and the other ones are just for fun. The annual ones are the ones we do every year. The other ones we just go on are usually the best. There is always a cook- out after them and lots of food to eat! I mean LOTS of food. Last of all, Its one of my favorite things to do because I get to drive my own four wheeler! Witch means, I can get even muddier!
The moment when you're waiting in the line to go through the mud hole is really breath taking! The rush of when you're siting on your four wheeler about to charge through a mud pit, a line of people behind you waiting to see if you can make it. You hit the gas as fast as you can and mud fly's everywhere! You make it through with mud dripping from your hair and the sound of truck's and jeeps surrounding you. You see that you have made it through and continue your ride through the woods following the others.
The main reason I love mud running so much is because theirs no one to judge you. Your in a group of people that share your passion, the way you eat and talk to! When your waiting for everyone to arrive at the begging on the trail eating a bad of chips, theirs nothing else you would rather be doing. With no phone service there it keeps the city people far away! (no internet ether) When you start driveling in the fall, the colorfully leafs surrounding you and mud pits laying in front you, its the best thing in the world.

I love basketball. I've played for 5 years now. Basketball is my favorite sport of all times.
If You're like me than you would love basketball as much as I do. My mom put me in basketball when I was 6. I fell in love with it.
I love jumping up and making shots and doing all the plays. Like one time we were right at the end of the game and the teams were tied 22 to 22. I jumped up and made a 3 pointer. The game wining shot. It felt amazing to know that you just made the winning shot at your little league championship tournament.
Know you know why I love basketball so much. And why it's important to me. I love basketball.
I started doing gymnastics when I was in 4th grade. I first started at a place called Extreme it was pretty fun I did it for about a year and than I went to the YMCA but they did not teach me that much so I'm at a place called Charmion now. I really like it there.
One thing that I like the most is my round off back hand spring I'm very good at it. I get lost in the moment I stand there and take a deep breath and run as fast as I can do my round off and than I have to jump up and back as hard as I can I don't ever land it but I'm getting there.
I really like doing gymnastics. I think its a fun experience that everyone should get to do in there life at least once in there life. It's just an amazing feeling when your in the air flipping and turning in different ways that you have never done before.

My favorite hobby is playing baseball. My favorite hobby is baseball because since I was a little kid, baseball seemed interesting to me. I saw it on TV and it seemed to be a fun sport. I watched baseball everyday to know what it was. That is how my baseball hobby started.
I came home from school when I was four years old with a slip of paper that said "Join Tee Ball". I asked my parents if I could play so I could see how fun it is in my perspective. They said yes and I was jumping for joy. I couldn't wait for tee ball. When tee ball came, I was ready to play. I had all my equipment in my bat - bag. My team and I were practicing catching, hitting, getting ground balls, everything.That was the day I started to try to play baseball everyday.
I play baseball for some reasons. One reason is that it keeps you healthy. Exercising is actually fun in baseball. You can imagine that you are in the batting box, fans cheering your name, bases loaded, and you hit a home run. Another reason is that baseball is the only sport that I think is fun. I also watch football and other sports but they don't interest me as much as baseball.

I like to play sports because all of my family have played sports and I want to follow in there footsteps. Most of my family have played Soccer and Basketball. I have played both of those sports.
I love Soccer because I have played for 8 years. I know so much about Soccer it is unbelievable. Soccer is my life I play almost everyday it is sad that I have no one to play with but sometimes my dog Pablo will play with me.
One time I was a little kid I was going to my soccer game and let me tell you what soccer is a scary sport. So I got to my game and I got kicked in the face with the ball and got stepped on,kick,and shoved I got beat to the ground but I still got up and pretended to that nothing ever happened until I was goal y I got kicked with the ball in THE FACE!! But I can not complain because I blocked the ball from going in the goal, and I was not bleeding or anything. To me sports is everything to me I really would not care if someone hit in the face with the ball I would just keep going no matter what!!!!
My hobby is four wheeler riding on my 2013 Tao Tao 125cc youth four wheeler. I like riding four wheelers because you can use them to get in and out of the woods with heavy loads .
you can use them for carrying deer, wood, tree stands,wagons and many other things. I love getting rain because it gets really muddy . I think its fun to get stuck in the mud because you have to get another four wheeler or a truck. I like to trail ride in Vinton County in apple men holler I go hunting trail riding and fishing in apple men holler . If you get to the top of the holler their is a clear cut and it goes on for miles and miles of nothing but the three line as far as you can see .
One of my many hobbies is Minecraft. I play Minecraft because I can use my imagination to build anything I want to build and I can play with my friends. Minecraft is very fun in any game mode in the game. My favorite game mode in Minecraft is survival. I also play the other game mode creative.
Survival and creative are both fun. In creative a few days ago I made and giant football stadium and tall buildings for my city. I also added a mall with shops and a place to eat. I now have a least 50 buildings in my city and it looks very good so I am proud of myself. In survival you start out with nothing so I gathered blocks and food. I am using the blocks for a large shelter and I need the food so I will not starve to death. What game mode do you like?
I really recommend Minecraft because it is fun and you can use your imagination to build. You can have very fun in any game mode and you can have fun with your friends while you are playing Minecraft like J.C, David and I play sometimes and we have very fun. Do you want to play Minecraft?
I like to go fishing because I get to spend more time with my family. When I do go fishing I usually put a worm on the hook. Then I cast my line out into the water. After I wait for a while I might a catch fish.
When I was little loved to go fishing. The bad part is I was inpatient most of the time. My first fish I caught was a puffer fish. When I went that day I packed some of favorite my snacks.
When me and my family went that day I took out a container with miniature squids in it. I put one of the the squids on the hook and cast my line out into the water. I waited for good hour watch the pelicans fly around stealing peoples fish off their hooks. When I looked at my pole it was kinda bent at the top. Immediately I had to grab the pole. I wound up getting help from my mom.
