Maybe someday we will start our own rock band, and I will be the drummer
It rains a lot in the spring the trees are full of buds and the flowers are starting to bloom
My favorite spring flowers are tulips and Daffodils
The Birds come back from the south I can always tell that spring is here when I see my first robin of the season
the Robins pull worms from the wet ground
When it isn't raining my friends and I go outside and toss the ball around
We look forward to the summer, but we are glad to get outside after the long winter
The Air smells so fresh in the spring my mother always tells me not to track mud into the house
It's very muddy in our yard in the springtime. I wipe my muddy feet before I go into the house
There are a lot of puddles in my yard
I sometimes splash in the puddles and I get wet and cold so I have to go into the house I
Like it when the snow has melted the rain has stopped and the sun comes out on
Sunny days, I always get together with my friends on
Those days we either ride our bikes or play ball
My parents like to go for walks on spring evenings. They also like to clean up the yard in the spring
Everyone seems to be outside the spring time brings people out of their houses

There are blackboards at the front of the room my teacher always has writing all over the blackboards

Classroom is full of desk
There are a lot of students in our class our desks are full of books notebooks and pens
I try to keep my desk neat but I have a lot of things in there

Biographies, so I have taken many of those home. There are also tables at the back of the room
That's where we do our artwork. We spread out big sheets of paper and use paints or crayons to make pictures
Sometimes we cut things out of magazines with scissors, and we glue pictures to the paper. I like art class
After school my friends and I often erase the blackboards for the teacher
Then we take the erasers outside and clap them together to get the chalk dust out of them
My friends and I walk home together and talk about what we did in school, and what we're going to do after supper
My family and I went on vacation to Lake Huron the water is beautiful and blue there and the sand is nice and white
the week that we were there was very hot the sun was hot but the water was still very cold I
Went swimming and tried to catch little fish in my hands. I was careful not to get sunburned
We stayed at a hotel that had a pool and a game room. I played pinball and video games sometimes I
Like to swim in the hotel pool, but I like the beach better
I would lie on a big beach towel and get warm then I would jump in the water and cool off
Sometimes I would just lie on the sand and watch the waves roll up on Shore I
Found some seashells and saw a crab walking on the sand at
First I was a bit lonely because I didn't know anyone there. It wasn't long before. I met some other kids my age
We built Sandcastles together and swam in the lake
The other kids were from Different towns
So we told each other stories about our schools and friends
We found that we had a lot in common even though we were from different places our
Families got together and went to restaurants together
we played volleyball on the beach, and we sat around the campfire at night and sang songs at
The Campfire we would roast marshmallows on a stick. I always burn my marshmallows
That is ok I like them that way
Mostly we just swam in the lake until we were very tired. I was sorry when our vacation was over
I had a good time at Lake Huron. I met some very good friends there. We still write to each other
Maybe we'll see each other next summer

Talked to my brothers and my sister and I a lot we are a very close-knit family
People who have close families are very lucky
Once the fall is over and the snowflakes start to fall I get very excited
I can hardly wait for the ground to be covered with a blanket of white snow
I put on my mittens my scarf my hat coat and winter boots and I run out into the fluffy snow I
Have to be careful, not to slip on the ice
It can get very icy and cold in the winter the first thing that I do is to build a snowman
I sometimes build a snow fort too my friends and I have a good snow ball fight
We laugh a lot and our cheeks and noses get very red
When we get too cold we go into the house and have a cup of hot chocolate
My father fills the backyard with water that freezes and turns into an ice rink
When the ice is hard enough my friends and I get our skates and we go out on the ice to play hockey
all of my friends own hockey sticks
I am usually the goalie and I have to keep the puck from going into the net
My sister and her friends don't really like to play hockey. They would rather just skate around on the ice
I took skating lessons
So I don't usually fall down my little brother is just learning to skate, so he falls down a lot
My father has to shovel the snow off the paths and the driveway in the winter. I help him
Shoveling snow is hard work when my dad, and I finished shoveling the driveway
We go into the house and warm our hands and feet in front of the fireplace
There is probably nothing more beautiful than fresh fallen snow on the trees in the morning when the sun Shines on the snow it
Glistens, I like to leave my footprints in the snow
Winter can be very beautiful and exciting
Some people call autumn the fall you can call it either one
Autumn is the time when the leaves change color they change from Green to
Beautiful shades of gold orange and red it looks like an artist has come along and painted all the trees
The air starts to get a little colder in the autumn we begin to wear jackets or sweaters
We go back to school in the autumn the teachers sometimes gets us to make leaf collections
We collect different types of leaves and make a display of them
Autumn is the time when old friends get back together and talk about what they did on their summer vacations
Halloween comes in the autumn. We dress up in costumes some of them are scary and some of them are funny
We go from door to door and say trick or treat and people give us candies
We wear masks on our faces, and we have a lot of fun
The Autumn winds start to blow the wind blows believes right off the trees until the trees have bare branches
My friends, and I have a lot of fun outside before the winter leaves us shivering. We play football and soccer at school after
School we ride our bikes through the piles of dry leaves the leaves go flying through the air as we drive through them
My parents rake the leaves up and put them in a big pile
I like to jump in the big piles of leaves
But then my parents just have to rake them up again
The skies get a little cloudier in the autumn and we know that soon there will be snow
So we enjoy the brisk autumn weather while we can
Yeah, ooh
School is over. We are free for the summer my friends
And I run out on the last day of school into the bright summer sun
We sing a song about no more pencils and no more books
We can hardly wait to do all the summer things that we like to do we go swimming we play baseball
We ride our bikes and we go to the beach
We go on vacations or some of us go to summer camp?
It is just nice to run barefoot through the grass or lie on your back and look up at the clouds

the doctor
Didn't feel very well last week. I had a sore throat and a fever
my mother took me to see the doctor when
We got there the nurse took my name and said that the doctor would be with me soon
The doctor was a very nice man in a white jacket
I had seen the doctor before when I had my tonsils out at the hospital the doctor took a light and looked in my ears
He put a stick on my tongue, and he shon his light into my mouth. He looked at my throat
He said that my throat was a bit swollen and red
He felt my neck and said my glands were swollen. He took my temperature and said that it was quite high
He listened to my heart and he made me cough
He asked me some questions
He said he might have to do some tests. He sent me to get some blood taken out of my arm
I was scared
But it didn't really hurt the doctor gave me some pills and told me to take one in the morning and one at night
He told me to drink lots of fluids. He told me to get plenty of sleep
I did exactly what the doctor told me to do it wasn't very long before I was feeling well again
I think that I might like to be a doctor when I grow up
    You must  Log in  to get the function.
