A Kid's View

Living In South Dakota
I am finally done with unpacking. Well almost. My dad is going back and forth from Nevada to South Dakota, Not flying, driving! I really don’t know how he does it, but he does! So when he is gone it is just my mom and I! Sometimes we get mad at each other but we can’t be mad at each other forever!

South Dakota is a nice place. The weather here is really cold but after a while you kinda get used to it. Yesterday it was snowing and blowing wind like crazy, but today the snow plows came by and scooped up all the snow and made hills which are so fun to play on!

Schools here are much different than the schools in Nevada! A “C” average in Nevada is an “F” average here in South Dakota. So it is a challenge but it isn’t that hard. But for the things I get to do around here it is well worth the extra hard work.

You also can’t forget about Valentine’s Day! I really like Valentines Day. You can sometimes see how many people like you! The funny thing is that in my new school more guys like me than in my old school! Apparently, they don’t know me that much or they actually like me!

Dances are fun here also. On Valentine’s Day I went to my school dance. It lasted from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Instead of just dancing, they had games you could play to win things like teddy bears, chocolate, and drinks. I had so much fun!

I have a lot of new friends here too so it’s perfect! But I still do miss my friends at home and my family that live in Nevada. Of course I am going to visit them when I can, like the summers!

Well that’s all I have for you this month. If you have ever moved or are planning on moving, send me an e-mail at info@bouldercity or you can visit my very own web site located at
