First Story - Getting to know me

Dear Readers,

I am pleased to announce that Mrs. Yollis has awarded me my own blog. I earned my blog by demonstrating  hard work and dedication both at home and at school.  Join me on a journey where I will combine "education" and "adventure" to create my own "edventure" on my "Enormous Elevator" ride.

I would like to share with you a little bit about myself.  My name is Ellie, and I am in a family of six.  I have an older brother named Noah, two sisters named Caiti and Ana, and my parents are Jamie and Patty.  My dad is a firefighter and my mom is a chef.  I also have a yellow lab named Charlie.   

I like to eat all kinds of foods, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be spinach.  My favorite colors are blue and greenI am friends with everyone.  

I love playing soccer, and my coach’s name is Felix.  The positions I mainly play are left or right mid fielder.
I am about to score a goal.

I treasure the outdoors whether I am rock-climbing, hiking, camping, skiing, snowboarding, hanging out at the beach, or out riding my dirt bike with my family and friends.

Rock climbing in Joshua Tree.
I like to spend a lot of time in Mammoth and Yosemite.

Snowboarding at Canyon Lodge in Mammoth.

My favorite book is Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary. I enjoy math and reading. In conclusion, I admire Mrs. Yollis for giving me this blog. 


Do you want a blog? Why?

If you had a blog what would you name it? Would you want your blog to be alliteration or a rhyme? Why?
