This week our student blogging challenge is to write about were we live. I live in the United states or more specifically Lawndale, California.I live in Lawndale, but I’ve only lived here for about a year in a half. Even though I have lived here for a short amount of time I know many events that happen or have happened in Lawndale. For example I know that they just built a new library. I was already living here when they opened it for the first time. I also know that there is a farmers every week on Wed. in front of the library and city hall. I know that because I live close to all of those places. Another event that happens in Lawndale is the holiday decorating contest, which is a contest that happens around Christmas and you decorate your house and (if you register) judges will come around and rate your house in different categories. I know about this because we took place in that competition and won third place in lighting . Lastly there is the Lawndale parade. This is sort of new to me, but I know about it because this year I will be in it on flag team. There are other events here were I live but these were the ones I love the most.
