I am going to be honest with you when I was younger getting a cold turned me into a big baby.  I remember the early mornings laying in

Ho Ho Ho

Christmas is the holiday that I enjoy most. It's so exciting to pick presents for each of the people that I love and try to spread happiness and joy all month long. This year is my second Christmas living in the States. It makes it even more spectacular because, in Chile, Christmas is in the middle of the summer, so everything I have ever watched in movies and cartoons since I was a child was a dream. The States has first place

The Train

This week my family and I were decorating the house getting it ready for Christmas, and my job was to put the star on top of the tree and to put together the mechanical "Train" that goes under the tree.  So first I tried it out, and it turned out great, but then slowly it went down hill. A piece came off the I could not put it back so I asked my dad if he could fix it but he

My Sick Weekend

‍This week was Thanksgiving, and my school district gave us the week off. As you know I would; I spent the whole weekend playing Madden, NBA 2k17, and Call of Duty Black Ops 2. When the weekend arrived, I had a cold. Because of my cold, my parents made me stay on the couch all day. It was fun because I was watching football with my dad and my favorite team is the New England Patriots. This Sunday they are playing the NY Jets,

Ice and Sun

[caption id="attachment_143" align="alignright" width="233"] Presley, Brandon, EV and Danny[/caption] Almost two complete years of being in Colorado and I still don't get the weather. It still looks like summer from my window: sunny, green and blue sky, but you need a proper jacket, hat and sometimes gloves when you go outside. The central heating that everyone has is so different from my Chile; it makes it even more challenging. It's like 28 C degrees permanently inside of the house, so

EV Journal November 26, 2016

[caption id="attachment_126" align="aligncenter" width="700"] I started reading the book inside out this week.[/caption] This week I read the book Inside Out.  I liked the book, it is funny and inspiring.  I learned that you need to be creative. I was also reading my Bible and I learned that no matter where you are or what is happening someone will always be with you.  And I learned that you only need to be still because the Lord will fight for you.

What a Difference a Year Makes.

Wow what a difference a year makes.  I look back over the last year since last Thanksgiving and I can only thank God for all he has done for me and my family.  It was around this time last year that I had no idea how I was going to pay my bills.  Things were not going well, things with our move had taken a turn for the worst.  With my back against the wall I said a simple prayer,

Tennis Anyone?

The Brewington clan has decided to take up tennis in hopes of living a healthier lifestyle.  Considering Longmont has 15 places you can play tennis for free with two of them are within a mile of our house it makes sense.  Tennis is a great sport for families of all ages, it's fun, and you get a great workout whether you are hitting the ball or chasing after those pesky stray shots.

Brandon’s Memoir 2.0

I got woken up abruptly, and it was 3:34 in the morning. My bed, which had gone crazy mad shaking was the reason. Not long after I woke from my sleep, I heard my dad shouting “Kids wake up! It is an earthquake”, while he rushed from his room up to ours. Just as I am in my nightmares I was paralyzed at that moment of high pressure; I was unable to move.
