Wizbanger Times Wizbanger Times- August 28
Hello, everyone! By this time next week my brother and I will have completed a full three days of school! During the school year I will be changing the outline for articles a little bit just to change things up... if you have any suggestions, please tell me and I will consider them!
On Monday I had the pleasure of going tubing with one of my good friends, Ava Gullickson, and her family! We drove to their lake home for an awesome day of swimming and tubing! We played on their water mat, a huge, blue foam mat that floats on the water; water trampoline, a small trampoline that sits on a big inner tube; and of course went tubing!

preacher314 the heart of the king
Woe to those who make unjust laws,
