Lucy started telling me that she likes winter because she can play snow ball fights, ice-skating and also Christmas, she loves receiving so many presents. Winter in Narnia is totally different of what Lucy thinks, it’s winter all the time, but no one play snow ball fights and we don’t have Christmas. We haven’t have Christmas for over 100 years. Lucy was really shocked when she heard what I said, but after I told her that the white queen who turned Narnia into winter, endless winter. She’s full of disappointment because there isn’t Christmas in Narnia.
My family showed Elli many things we did as a family such as skiing every Friday night at Elk Mountain and Elli's least favorite was the "family bonding" we did every so often. That consisted of bringing wood into the house for the winter or splitting it for use later. Hosting such an awesome friend, let me experience German culture a little by her cooking, language, and how she acted until she got settled in completely. She showed me that even all the way across the world; people are very alike, no matter where they are from. I am glad that my family decided to be a host family because not a lot of families get to experience such a wonderful time, learn so much about a different culture, or make a life-long
When I was four or five, we traveled back up to Yakima to visit friends, but the only thing I remember from the trip is me and my younger sister throwing crayons out the window of my dad’s truck. Because I was born in Yakima, I have always wanted to learn about the people who gave the city its name. I have come to learn that the Yakama were a peaceful people, thriving off of the riches of the great Columbia River. Like most of the native people in North America, life as the Yakamas knew it changed overnight once they encountered the white man. And like most of the native people in North America, they too were forced to live on a reservation and give up generations-old traditions.

Little Wolf Cheyenne, born in 1820, was a Native American chief of northern Cheyenne that his people respect. His tribe respected him because he was kind, gentle and generous.
