My hero is my Dad, Joshua Radcliffe, because he supports me in almost everything that I do. My Dad is the mayor of North Fairfield and works up in Mansfield at Oak Grove Manor as an Occupational Therapists.
My dad is smart, wise, funny, helpful, joyful , cheery, and jolly. My dad likes helping people. He is smart and funny. Up at his work, he helps people with disabilities. My dad likes to help out people that need help with things like when him and me built that swing set for the village of North Fairfield. We had to measure the holes, dig the holes with and hand held augur(that tore my arms, shoulders, and wrists up from digging 6 holes for a whole week). Yesterday, my dad helped some random stranger jumpstart their car. (One bad thing about him though is that he needs to learn how to say "NO" to people.)
My dad helps me out with my homework that I do not understand from class. He supported me on every decision I make. I was Hesitating on joining basketball. My dad told me to go for it and I liked it after that. My dad has taught me very important things that'll need to know later on down the road. My dad also taught me to not be like my older brother, who got tickets and his license taken away. He is my hero because I look up to him because
My summer was pretty fun. This summer went pretty good besides staying at home the whole summer. I got my mud mower running. All I need to do is just hook up a battery and it should start up. I played basketball alot with my friend Eli, but sadly we only had two people to play, so we couldn't have a game going. Eli and me were playing basketball, and while we were playing, we met this kid in our grade from Wilard that wanted to play basketball. I got my mud mower running, which needs a battery and needs a throttle cable.
My short term goals over the summer were to get better at my shooting form and be able to make more shots during a game. The second short goal I had was to get my mudding mower running before winter got here, which I have achieved. I am still improving over the summer, but I am able to make more shots in 20 seconds.
My long term goals during school and the summer is to get a good job to make good money. My second long term goal is to graduate school and get my high school diploma.
