Maconce 2020-2021 Kaleidoscope Winner Congratulations - Maconce Kaleidoscope Winner 2020-2021 Anthony Hodgkin, 5th Grade-Mrs. Ciaramella Camping with my Dad By: Anthony Hodgkin “Anthony! Get packet up your dad is going to be her any minute from now.” Mom said. “ok” I said. I then quickly packed my stuff. I was going camping with my dad. My dad arrived and said, “are you ready to camp on the river?” “Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees.”I yelped. On our drive we stopped to get sum bait and before we got to our campsite. The first thing we did when we arrived was to make a campfire and let me tell you there was a cloud of smoke. "Anthony don't breathe in the smoke.” dad said “ok”. Then I went fishing and caught a largemouth bass. It was small like a baby fish. I almost caught another one but lost it. After a day of fishing, I went to sleep, but we could not get comfortable on the air mattress. I stayed up all night. Finally, we went into the truck, put on the heaters, and fell asleep. The next morning, we made a campfire and cooked hot chocolate pancakes. They were delicious! Shortly after we took our boat out to just drive it. We went upriver and caught a small mouth bass. Five hours later we found nothing, and it was time to get back. So, we paddled and got to where we put our canoe. We went back to our campsite, packed up and got the heck out of there.
