What I’m thankful for

By Josh McLain

What are you thankful for? I am thankful for many things. I am thankful for these things every day! They are family, books and fishing.

I am thankful for my family because my parents have given me a fun life. I also appreciate my brothers because they have provided me with help to be better at sports. My uncle gives up his free time to be with me too!

I am thankful for books because it helps me learn history of the United States of America. I also like the joy of thrilling stories like “Quake.” It is fun to read amazing books!

Fishing is fun. I like to catch fish and eat them. Plus, fish is a good source of protein too! There are different types of fishing like bobber or Lindy rigging. My dad and I always have a laugh when we go fishing. Once, this summer, I caught a 23 1/2-inch walleye. Another day, we caught five walleyes and boy, did we make them delicious.

I am thankful for family, books and fishing. Do you want to come over and celebrate with me?
