Follow-up: Snapshot of my American Life
I did a lot of thinking after my last post. I have a very different perspective of America because I am from Wisconsin, and I wanted to share something from “my America” with everyone. I associate America with vast landscapes, farmland, bike trails and forests, the Great Lakes, road trips, school dress-up days, high school spirit, big snow storms, summer jobs, fatty food like fried cheese curds, casual fashion (read: sweatshirts, jeans, and tennis shoes every day), and the iconic summer fair. And now it’s time to share…

Some of my family and I climbed Mt. Sugarloaf, on the shore of Lake Superior.
At prom, we’re so cool that we pose with goats.

Welcome Home to Wausau!
Most of us have summer jobs, and because Wausau’s pretty small, we tend to know the kids who work at the ice cream place.
Nick’s summer job is at Briq’s Soft Serve Ice Cream!

My friends and I celebrated the end of the school year with a picnic.
I love cows! This was at the summer fair.

Good ole Wisconsin fields.
Me, on one of my biking adventures. This is at the top of a very, very steep hill.

Some days, it’s just the right day to go to the Children’s Museum and build a tower out of plastic blocks.
Enjoying the spring weather
For extra-credit in history class, I dressed up in a toga and wore it around school all day.
