I have brown eyes.  I love to draw.  I love to fish.  It is very fun and I think I am very good at it.  Once I caught a brown trout. My favorite place to go fishing is the Yellow Dog River in Michigan.  I also love to ice skate.  I think I am very good at it.

I like camping and biking.  I liked going camping when it was thunder storming.  I like running in the rain and playing in the sun.  I like to see cat tails and tigers; but those are at the zoo.  I like to go to the zoo.  I also like Ice Skating but I fall down sometimes.  The last time I went ice skating, I let go of the walker!  It was SO cool!  I even pushed the walker away and stood on the ice by myself.  When I have my birthday, I love having cake!
