King of the Hill

Danny Brewington, sledding

January brings with it snow here in Colorado; this kind of weather is to be expected in January.  This morning we woke to a fresh coat of soft snow.  After a quick clean of our driveway and sidewalks, the boys and I decided to hit the big hill next to the middle school. To our surprise, we were the first to hit the hill.  The Brewington Boys will be the first, kings of the hill, trailblazers making the first grooves in the freshly fallen

A Day In School

This week I decided to write about a day in my life. In my opinion, school is boring, but it will help you improve your life in the long run. On Tuesday, I had a science test about chemical changes. I missed only one questions, so I got a 96. After science, I had Intro to Robotics, where I get to mess around and have fun with my friends. An hour and a half later, I headed toward the Mac

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,

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.
