    Today was super fun! My favorite part of the day was the bus ride here because I got to sit by my friends.I also loved zip lining and bridge walking at the adventure park. at the beginning of the day I was so sleepy. Like I didn't wanna get on the bus. Now I am totally energetic.Like I don't wanna go to sleep.

    My favorite part of the day was the lumberjack show cause it was super cool. I also enjoyed the bus ride my friends and me had a fun time and i think i am going to love the rest of the trip. At first part of the trip i was a little boring cause of the movie. At the end of the day it was alot more fun. I think i am going to love the rest of the trip.n34 n

    Today we went to Mackinac Island, my favorite part was the bike ride. It was very fun because we got to go in the middle of the road. Taylor, Lily, Lauren and I all stayed in the back with Mr.Forrest and we got to party. Tomorrow i really look forward to climbing the sand dunes. This morning I was very tired but then I went on a very relaxing ferryboat ride on the top floor.
    Lily
    The thing that I really enjoyed was sitting next to people that I don’t usually talk to so I could get to know them more. In the morning I felt super excited for the trip. Now that we are on the trip it is very fun. I am looking forward to tomorrow when we go to the island.

    Today was like the best day ever! We went on the ferry to the island and I sat on top both times. But Taylor left because she couldn't handle the winds. i also loved biking! I go every year so this was easy. At the beginning of the day I didn't wanna get up (again). We stayed up late which wasn't smart. After I am sore because of all the biking.
    Lily
    My favorite part of the day was taking the ferry to the island. I liked it because it was a good learning experience and it was fun to look at everything. AT the begenning of the day I felt tired and at the end of the day it was all worth it. I had a good day.
    Taylor
    My favorite part of the day was bike riding. I also liked the tours with the horses. At the first part of the day it was really cold. Later on it warmed up. Next year you should do more bike riding.

    Today was the ferry was my highlight of the day. I loved the ferry because it was something new too do today. I was looking forward from the ferry to get to the island. At the beginning of the day I was tired and woke up as late as possible to get enough sleep and feel asleep a little on the ferry. The end of the day was fun going out to dinner and seeing the lighthouse. Too add on the shopping and biking was very fun.

    Today the highlight was going on top of the ferry i really liked it because it was cold and a good time at the beginning of the day it was kinda of boring and it was cold at the top of the ferry
    i also really like the hourse ride.It was so much fun but i was allergic to the horses but i survived we went on a bike ride that took forever cause we got lost and we had to find our way back home. we got to go to a fort and we played tag and we got to go shopping and we got some fudge for free and i was really happy how the day went at the end of the day to add on, we got to go shopping at it was really cool all the stuff we saw today and the stuff we got.

    Today the highlight of the day was going to Mackinac island with my group and friends. I didn't like how it was very cold on the boat ride and i was freezing my butt off. I got a new cube and i also got to go on a 8 mile bike ride and get fudge. At the start of the day i was very cold and bored. At the end of the day i was very happy that i had such a good day. I also really enjoyed that we got to go to the lighthouse and i took a sweet pick there and posted it on my insta. What I'm looking forward most for tomorrow is that even though it will be very bad that we have to wake up really early, we get to go to sleeping bear dunes and get to go on a hike with my friends and group. I can't wait for tomorrow and also to get home.

    Today the highlight of my day was the riding on the top of the ferry and going to Mackinac Island. Also, shopping with my friends was very fun. It's very fun to go bike riding and hang out with my friends all day at a different place. In the morning, I was very excited for Mackinac and excited to hang out with my friends and it exceeded my expectations. Now as I look back at the day, I am very happy I did every thing I did. Also, I liked taking sweet pictures with my friends and go to cool places.

    Drew-
    I thought the highlight of the day was everything. I really like all of it, the lumberjack show, the zipline, rock wall, and the bridge. I really liked the lumberjack show once I was there. I didn't really know what to expect when I saw the itinerary. I really liked everything at the adventure park. I thought it was all super fun and awesome. I liked the bridge especially. I also really like the bus I think that is fun.
    I really liked everything we did today. I thought the whole day was fun. The only thing I didn't like about this whole is that we got lost biking. I liked everything from going over the bridge to taking the ferry. i have no complaints about the whole entire day. I also really like all the fudge.

    My highlight of the day was the lumberjack show. I thought that it was going to be a boring show about the history of wood. To my surprise it was a fun to watch competition. I also enjoyed the zip line, rock climbing, and the fort. I really enjoyed today and I hope the next few days will be even better.
    Evan-
    This trip is great already.
    I really enjoyed everything we did today. I wasn't sure what to expect fromliked the fort the itinerary.most.

    My highlight of the day was the Lumberjack Show. I thought it was going to be a very boring unentertaining joke, but it turned out to be very fun, interesting, and intense. The competition was thrilling. When I saw the itinerary for the trip, I thought this would be terrible. Now, I am having a blast through one day of zip lining, rock climbing, touring, and wandering around. There is much more to come and I can't wait. Thank you for the amazing opportunity Mr. Jackson.

    Day 2: The ferry ride was so cold. Luckily, the weather got better as the day went on. The carriage ride was interesting. The arch rock was very cool. The biking was awesome but we got lost and it made it a very hilly ride. It was easy to see what improvements they made as time went on in the forts. It was an awesome day!
    Michael- This was a great day. I loved sleeping on the carriage ride, the bus, the ferry, and many more places. Overall it was fantastic. I played freeze tag at the fort. Then, I ate food at a restaurant. Before all this, I biked around the island. It was an extravagant day.

    The best par of the trip was the lumberjack show. The lumberjack show was fantastic because we cooperated with the well trained actors and felt like we were part of the show. I felt tired yet excited in the morning but by the end of the day I felt awake and ready to start the next day. The zip-line was also cool looking from an eagle’s view.

    The best part of the day was the lumberjack show because it was fun to watch. Next, the lumberjack gave me a piece of wood he cut. Finally, and the lumberjack I was cheering for won. This morning I was very tired because it was very early. Now I am also very tired even though I was energized during the day. Lastly, the zip line and bus was very fun because I was able to be with my friends and I love zip lines.
    ...
    the roads. The overall trip was great but I wish they shot a real cannon ball.
    Ethan- The best part of my day was watching the lumberjack show. It was very interactive, and unique to watch. Plus, it is part of Mackinac’s past. At the begging of the day I felt tired. Now, I feel more awake then before.
    There is too many hills on Mackinac Island. I haven't been to Mackinac Island in a while, and it was really neat to relive my old experiences.
