The wind nipped my face,
As I flew down the hill,
I’m skiing, I’m skiing!
What a thrill! Read more »
I am most thankful for the Red Sox winning the World Series, because I like how they all have beards. I like them because their designated hitter is amazing. The Red Sox won the World Series because they won the playoffs and then they won the World Series!
The place that I feel most confident is in the show ring at the New York Spring Show in Syracuse, NY. I feel confident because I’ve shown there before and sometimes get high placings. I like to see how many other calves are in my class and where they place. I feel confident because I’ve taught my calf to lead well. My calf is clean and well clipped. I like that I always feel confident at Springs Show and look forward to next spring.
I only wish for a different pet, something normal oh I wish.
Perhaps a cat or a dog, or even a sheep or a fish.
But I have the pet that no one else has,
And it’s really the worst of the worst of the bad.
It tears at the carpet, and scrapes at the floor.
It shatters the glass, and rattles the door.
It sends an icy chill up my spine.
Oh! It’s just the opposite of fine.
It howls all day long, Read more »
Once I went to Deerfield Valley Fair in New Hampshire. My bad luck started when I was clipping my cow’s leg and it must have felt so good she pooped on my head. Then my cousin Sophie Howe had to spray my hair out with a hose but instead she drenched me. Our 4-H club started bedding the cows. One of the 4-Hers, Gabe, was throwing sawdust down but instead he got my face. My mom made me join a pie eating and I came in second place to a sixteen year old and my mom took a picture of me with blueberry pie smudged all over my face. She posted it up on Facebook and I got humiliated. I took three doughnuts and smudged them in my mom’s face and posted it up on Facebook. That was my bad and funny day at Deerfield Valley Fair.
Once at a pool a man named George jumped off a diving board. The man George said “Watch this!” George jumped off the diving board and then the whole diving board snapped in half and hit himself in the back! When George reached the surface he said, “That was awesome!” I fell on the ground and started to laugh.
One summer night college kids were going to their friend’s house near their college that they went to in New York. When the kids were walking to their friend’s drive way most of them fell into a huge puddle. The girls were so dramatic because they were wearing nice clothes. Three of the girls, Amanda, Alex, and Emily were so mad because they had to go back to their dorm and change and take a shower and go back. The three girls were screaming at the boys, Matthew, Charlie, and Nicholas because they apparently they pushed them into the puddle but they really didn’t the girls just fell because they tripped over something and fell with their heels on. So when the girls were showered and ready to go back to their friend’s house they left and had fun time. When they got to their friend’s house Allison said “Why are you guys late?” Amanda, Alex, and Emily said “OMG! Long story.” The girls also said is was a very, disgusting story. When the party was over they went back to their dorm and the girls were not as mad as they were before but they were still a little upset. That is what college drama is. Also college drama can be worse if you’re a girl.
Keenan wants to try this.
Keenan wants to know the flavor.
What will it be?
He smudges his face,
And at the end of the race,
Keenan trashed his face.
He got runner up, for goodness sake!,
Eating 10 ounces of chocolate cake.
I know this doesn’t rhyme.
So to be precise, Read more »
One cold, foggy morning before Stealy got his name, he lived with 7 other dwarfs. They were poor and barely had anything except a little hut. Anyway, he spied on the rich neighbors. When they were gone he stole everything even their dog. After that they were not poor. The dwarfs had a fun time with the dog, and thats how Stealy got his name.
Once upon a time, while 7 dwarves were out stealing, (their work) they found a little baby dwarf wrapped in blankets.
They knew he was a dwarf, because he was smaller then a human baby.
He seemed to be talking to himself. Grumbling, and complaining.
One dwarf, Happy, said; “Why don’t we keep him? Nobody is caring for him.”
The others agreed.
They took him home, out of the cold, and to the warmth of the dwarves’ little hut.
The baby was still grumbling to himself in that odd way.
“Why don’t we name him Rumble?” Doc suggested. “For he’s always rumbling, mumbling, grumbling and complaining.” Read more »
There were seven dwarfs that were hiding in a cave. Another dwarf that was at the Dwarf Olympics lives in that cave too, but most of the time he is away. He plays basketball, hockey, football, soccer, rugby, boxing and lacrosse in the Dwarf Olympics. He knows how to play every sport there is but it would be too much. This dwarf’s name is Sporty and he can brag like a champ because he is in six dwarf Hall of Fames. He was in a world cup soccer tournament too. He never gets the other dwarfs respect but he does not care.
Hi. My name is Stinky. I will tell you how I got my name. It all happened one nice fall day. I was out with the other dwarfs. Their names are Doc, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, Bashful, Sneezy, and Dopey. I was in the back of the line.You are most likely thinking, why are we in a line? It is because don’t want to lose any one, not even Grumpy. So we walked and walked for so long we got very thirsty. Then we stopped at a lake to go swimming and I was the first to jump in. But the water was very dirty and so I stay dirty and I like it.
Hidee is the eighth dwarf you have never hear of. He sleeps while hiding in the stuffed bear carpet. If someone found him it would look like he was sleeping but he wasn’t. One day he was hiding like always. Snow White was left there and he kept an eye on her to keep her safe. She didn’t know. Once a witch stopped by but Snow White didn’t know that she was a witch. The witch tied a dress too tight on Snow White choking her, but Hidee untied it and saved Snow White. Another day the witch stopped by and gave Snow White a poison comb. Hidee removed it from her hair and saved her again. The third time the witch came she had a poison apple. Again, Hidee saved Snow White. Snow White never knew that Hidee was the one that saved her each time.
What can this 8th Dwarf do? My 8th Dwarf is Silly. She is very funny and kind. Silly watches out for her best friend, Happy. Silly also is kind because she likes to tell Grumpy that he needs to cheer up a little bit and he never does. Silly loves to jump and laugh a whole lot.
Silly and Happy’s friend Doc is hilarious too. He likes to go over to Grumpy and say “ CHEER UP! You’re a BIG BOY. “ I never like how Grumpy reacts. He is so mean when he reacts. He says, “Don’t worry about me. Worry about yourself.”
So another time Silly, Happy and Doc go over to see Grumpy and he was so mad that Silly, Happy and Doc kept coming over. He said, “Go away and stop annoying me!”
Do you know about the story snow white? There is a new dwarf! I created him. His name is Jokey. Jokey always tells jokes to himself, and to others. Sometimes, Jokey pulls pranks, especially on Bashful, Grumpy, and sneezy. Jokey does not look a lot like the other dwarfs. Jokey has a natural clown-like nose and a rainbow hat. The rest of his clothes is dark green and purple. Jokey is strange, funny, and different. That’s why I created him.
Do you sing in a choir and perform on Christmas Eve? I do. I usually sing alto which is not high, but kind of low. I enjoy being part of the Tunbridge Children’s Choir because each year we get assigned a part. This year I’m an angel with my friends, Margot and Oliva. We will have to memorize a line or even a solo. Our teachers names are Liz, who is the leader, Janet, who is co-leader, and Judy. Judy is one of the best people at piano. That’s what I do on my Christmas Eve.
Winter hurray! Yippee! I am going to focus on doing a lot this winter with my cousins. We are going to play outside in the fluffy, deep, white snow. We are also going to go to the mountains and ski in the cold weather. That’s why we dress really worm. My cousins and I are going to sit underneath the decorative christmas tree and look at the fantastic colorful tree and open presents. We are going to jump in the snow and have a blast because we all love to jump. We are going to sled down some hills and have a blast.
1,2,3,4,5 I LOVE WINTER.
Thanksgiving is coming up, just in a couple of weeks. Do you know what you are thankful for? Well, I do. Three things in particular. Here’s the 1st: It’s school. When I’m older I want to be an orthodontist. I probably want to get as much school as I can right now, but in college I’m going to get a lot of the answers that I have always wanted answered.
Friends and family are two other things I am thankful for. I do not know what I would do without my friends. I show at the fair with one of my best friends and he teaches me a lot. Family give me a lot of support. In basketball they are always there to cheer me on. In baseball my brother is a catcher and I am too, so he teaches me techniques.
I am very thankful for my 3-DS. A 3-DS is a hand held video game that you can play in 3D! It is very fun to play. My 3-DS is purple. I got it for my 10th birthday. I am thankful for it because now I can make videos and make Miis (Miis are like little people). I have always wanted a 3-DS, and now I finally have one.
I am very thankful for a lot of things. Two things I am thankful for are my family and my friends and for all the things they have helped me with and just being kind. I am also thankful for my friends because they have helped me with soccer moves, so I am good at soccer and other sports. I am most thankful for my family and friends because they have helped me some times get back on the right track (not saying I did something bad! Just for other things!).
Do you want to know how thankful I am? I would brag to everyone how I have awesome parents and how I’m fed, with a roof over my head. I am thankful for what I have. I would give up all my toys to help the poor because I have everything I need -- a roof over my head, parents, playing space, and food. My point is that I don’t need toys or a TV. I have every single thing.
One cold, dark Halloween night my second cousins and I decided to play tag. I had my black ghost ninja suit on, so I hid next to my car, a green Subaru. Well, nobody could see me there! When I was it, I hid there, and so on, and so on.
I love my family. They treat me well, not meanly. I’m thankful for my family.
A true story!
I’m thankful for my family,
They’re thankful for me.
We’re so happy together,
So happy are we.
They watch out for me
And stay by my side.
We’re a happy family together,
A family with pride.
They’re on my team.
We’re the happiest family that you’ve ever seen.
My family supports me in all that I do,
In the good time and bad, we stick together like glue.
One day I woke up in a town where all the people were ninjas. They only had 6 different colored suits like ... red, yellow, green, blue and purple. Then I looked to the left and there was my friend Kody.
“Hey! We are in the same plaises -- oops. Did I say something wrong?” said Kody in a tired voice.
“Yes,” I said.
Then we went to the town and asked someone, “Why are you in Ninja suits?”
“Because people with alligator heads attack every night. You should go get a ninja suit. OK?”
“OK,” said Kody.
So we went to get our ninja suits. Kody got a blue one, I got a red one.
“It’s 8:00, Amber,” said Kody.
“Is there a changing room in here?” I asked the man who was selling the suits.
“Yes, right there!” Then we changed and night came.
When we got out to fight, there were the people with alligator heads. We fought until one in the morning.
Then we went home.
One time I woke up not knowing where I was. Then I looked around and asked someone “Where am I?”
It turns out that I went through a portal. The portal looked like a black hole but it wasn’t. It was big, with a little green. That is what it looked like.
I was scared. I thought I would never see my family again. I did not give up trying to find a way back.
Finally I thought of an idea. Try to find the portal that I went through. Finally I found the portal. I returned home.
I told it all to my mom when I got home. She said “What do you mean? You were only gone 2 hours?”
Home sweet home.
I wake up and I’m in New York. I’m going to school there. It’s sunny and it’s warm there. It’s beautiful there too. After school I get on the bus because someone is there to pick me up. Then I go back to the hotel and I go back to sleep. I wake up back at my house.
One day I was walking along Vero Beach, Florida. I was on vacation. This beach had a lot of mermaids, and was packed with tourists.
I walked for a while, until the tourists were a tiny dot.
I spread my towel out, near the shore, and sat down. I unpacked my picnic lunch, and took a bite of my sandwich.
Just then, I heard giggling from in the water. I looked over and saw two princess mermaids.
When they saw me they swam over.
For the past couple of days I’d been here, I’d made friends with all the mermaids so they knew and trusted me.
One said, “Can we try out a new spell on you?” (The mermaids were magical so they were always making new spells.)
“Well,” I said, “does it ever wear off?”
“It only lasts one day,” said the other mermaid.
“Whatever time it starts, is the time the spell will end the next day.”
“Well ... I guess,” I said uncertainly.
The mermaid took out her wand, waved it in the air, said a few words, and swam away along with the other one.
Suddenly I felt very sleepy. I lay on my towel and closed my eyes. Read more »
The Earth was destroyed 1 billion years ago. A lot survived but some didn’t. I woke up in a white room. Two people were there, Jack and someone who I did not know. I was in a bed. I heard them talking. I don’t know how I got there.
I must have been unconscious. I heard enough to know that they were drone managers. Jack and I were out on a patrol when aliens came and captured us.
The aliens were actually people. They convinced us to fight the drones. We did and we won and the people that lived there all had a good life after this.
Once when I woke up I was somewhere that I had not been in a while. When I was there I was feeling nervous, scared, and weird because I had not been there in a while. The place I was at was huge, and it had awesome stuff in it. When I was there I was about to scream because I did not know where I was.
Turns out I was with all my family and Isabella, at my cousin’s house in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
It was awesome because it was my little cousin’s birthday. His name is Alexander. We had a blast. He was turning 5. It was also fun because I was with all my other 3 cousins. One is my age, which is 10, and the rest are younger.
I love hanging with them because I don’t see them often because I live in Tunbridge, Vermont, and they live in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.
When we left we all took a plane home. We were all tired and we got home at 1:00 am. Isabella came to my house to sleep.
We got up at 10:00 am the next day. I love being with my cousins.
I did my homework, brushed my teeth, and went to bed.
I wake up the next day and I said, “What kind of bed is this?” I was sitting on a block bed, a block ceiling and a block wall were in the room!
I tried to go back to sleep but I could not.
I finally gave up and went outside. It looked like I was in a video game but I knew that I was not.
I decided to go for a walk. I felt a little scared when I went on the walk.
I got back from my walk about one hour after I left. I brushed my teeth and went to bed.
I woke up in the morning. Everything was back to normal.
