I really enjoy being with my wrestling team. I’ve made some good friends from The Vipers. The Vipers are a wrestling team from Caruthers – a small town south of Fresno. One of my new friends is Hunter and another one is Diego. I met Hunter three weeks ago and I met Diego at our last tournament. They are good guys and I’m glad I got to be friends with them. My younger brother says I can’t hang out with my new friends because they wrestle for a competing team but I hang out with them anyway. I like having a variety of friends and I like getting to know new people so I will still get to know friends from other teams. I have four medals since I started wrestling. I have two second place medals and a third place medal. I wear them on Fridays at school. People ask me where I got them, so it’s a good way to start a conversation. Fridays are my favorite days.

My O&M Specialist took me on a trip to Five Guys Hamburgers at Riverpark shopping center. We took the city bus and I learned how to use bus tokens. I ordered and paid for my own food. The hamburgers were great.

School is almost over and I’m looking forward to summer because I get to rest and do the things I love like swimming and staying up ate and playing Minecraft. I have been playing Minecraft lately and so far I have found a Nether Fortress and a Blazesponder. But, I’m also not looking forward to summer because I won’t see some of my friends I see every day at school.

Have a great summer.

See you later,

Angel
