Today was another successful day at the Butler Academy. All the campers had a wonder experience by going to Brasa, the Brazilian stake house in Brier Creek. At Brasa the campers tried many foods. However, their favorite seemed to be the bread! When the campers were at Brasa the Butler family took the time to come and spend time with the campers. Everyone had to stand up and tell the Butler family their name, what school they go to, what grade they are going to, and one interesting fact about themselves. The Butler family was impressed with some of the campers’ interest. When the Butler family had to leave, the campers were disappointed because of all the interesting stories that the butlers brought. Also, because that meant they had leave and go learn. When the campers came back to the church they learned about acid and bases and participated in chemical projects. The campers’ favorite part was drinking the experiment when they were done. All the campers left Butler Academy with another smile because they met the Butler family and had a free Gatorade.

After the experiment we cleaned up and got ready for another exciting day of basketball. When we went to Upper Room Christian Academy we met up with Coach Lester. Coach Lester taught the campers how to dribble, shoot, and show good sportsmanship. When the campers finally got on the court they got rite into choosing teams. Once that was settled they began playing in an intense game of basketball and we quickly found out which team was the best (yellow) . Not long after they started playing, they were greeted by Mr. Butler. However, he wasn’t there to just to say hi, he was there to play. Mr. Butler shot around with the campers and showed them “his moves”. After a quick game of basketball with the campers it was time for us to leave. When in the van the campers started to have a intense conversation about who really the best team. All in all it was another exciting day at Butler Academy.

So, today was my first day at the Butler Academy. I really liked the academy because they teach you how to treat people in a nice way and to use your manners. They also taught me and my friends about math and science. The teacher, Mr. Franklin, was a very smart guy and I liked him. I like how they have team leaders. It is good they have them so they teacher will not have to do everything themselves and the team leaders were really cool. I want to be like them and be a team leader one day. We go play basketball at 4:00, and I can’t wait to show off my skills. I also, liked the academy because it is at a church.

Today was my first day at the Butler Academy. The academy started off kind of slow because the other kids took a long time to come, but when they did arrive to the academy started to get fun. First, we had math, I was kind of scared to answer questions and talking to people and our first break I didn’t know who to talk to so, I just talked to my team leader. My team leader, Jameson, was the best. He was very funny and played with me! He was even a great problem solver. After first break I started meeting friends and they nice and helpful too. My first friend talked to me at snack time in the morning. My second friend helped me fix my airplane when I was folding it wrong. Then, we had lunch, it was fun because we watched videos and listened to music. Mr. Franklin, the teacher of butler academy, helped me understand a lot today. I REALLY LIKED HIM TOO!! I am really looking forward for tomorrow, I hope it will be like today because I made a lot of friends.
