Exploring Our Own Lives

Introduction
by Emma Lynn and Katie
Our class listened to a book on tape of the Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs by Betty G. Birney. It was about a boy named Eben. He had been learning about the Seven Wonders of the World. His dad said if he found the Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs he would get to go on a train to Colarado. Eben learned that there are wonders everywhere. Our teacher, Mrs O’Brien, told us to go home and explore our lives to find our own wonder and tell how it is special to us.

My wonder is my dog Daisy. Daisy loves people especially Kenny, Trentin, and me. Daisy likes to wrestle and she’s playful. I hope I get to keep Daisy when I get older. Daisy sleeps with me at night. She lays on my other pillow. People give her a hot dog every time they come out of the meat store next door. I give Daisy a bone or a hot dog as a treat. Daisy loves bones. Every day Daisy runs after me on my bike or my scooter. Daisy and I run in the back yard. I love my dog Daisy.

My wonder is a Grandfather clock. I know that it is very old. It was my Grandfather’s clock. I wonder when it was made? I liked when it chimed 12:00 in the afternoon. It is not my clock it is my Mom’s clock that she got it from my Grandfather. It is not completely put togther so it does not work. I like the Grandfather clock because it looks good.

My wonder is the moon. The moon comes out at night. It orbits the Earth and it is smaller than the Earth. The sun shines on the moon and makes it glow in the sky I have one question, why does the moon seem to follow me where ever I go? My wonder is important to me because it makes me feel happy when I see it. I take care of the moon by saying Hi to it. My family told me that I have always liked looking at the moon.

I walk him after school and before karata. Kona sleeps in my mom’s and dad’s room in his own bed. I play with Kona to keep him company. When he does something bad he rolls his eyes and hides. When he doesn’t have attention he nudges me and he rolls over and barks. I love my dog Kona.

When I was a baby I got my dog. We named her Jenna. Jenna is playful, nice, and good. She is house trained which means she listens to rules. I would like to know how dogs are house trained. Some of my jobs are to feed Jenna and get her ready for bed. She has to wear a housecoat so that she is warm and doesn’t wake us up in the night. Jenna is my wonder because she has been part of my family my whole life.

Then my dad broght in a box with the kitten in it. My brother and I named him Cole because he is black. Cole is so special to me because he loves to play with me and sleep on my lap. If I had my kitten taken away I would be very sad and lonely.

When I was eight I got one again. She was from my gramma too! her name is Abi. Abi is a look alike doll. A look alike doll is when you go on the computer and make a doll that looks like you.

My piano is special to me because my mom learned to play when she was little and now I’m learning to play. My grandparents bought the piano from a man that lived in Turner. When my grandparents were driving home with it the top fell off and they had to get it back. We have a guy that tunes it and my mom sometimes dusts it . My piano is really special to me because my brother and I are both learning to play.

My wonder is my Gerry Cheevers mask because he was the best goalie in the world. Gerry Cheevers played on the Bosten Bruins in the 1970’s. I want to know when he started playing hockey. I take care of the mask by keeping it away from people. He put a stich mark on his mask every time he got hit in the face. It is important to me because I play hockey and used to be a goalie.

Whan I was five yeres old I got my first Webkinz. My Webkinz name is Piggles. Piggles is very old he is 4 years old. Piggles was around since I was in kindergarten. I take good care of Piggles because
when he lost an ear I had to sew his ear back on. When I got lice I had to put all of my toys that had hair, including Piggles, in a big plastic bag and put them up in the attic. I missed Piggles so much. A few weeks later my lice were gone. I got to get all of my toys back down. I looked in the bag for Piggles first. After that I brought Piggles to school. Since Piggles is a Webkinz I can put him on the computer. I can buy him clothes, food, and furniture. Piggles has his own room on the computer. I love Piggles so much.

My wonder is the three cabin owns and we go to every summer. My Gampy was in 5th grade when he built the cabins! Back then there was a lot more people than today. Now there is only a little bit of cabins on the whole entire lake. That lake is called Pocomoonshine Lake. It is also very peaceful there when the stars come out with the loons. We sit on our screen porch. It is screen so the mosquitos can not get in. Especially because they are out a lot at night. In the day time we have a lot of fun! My favorite is swimming and painting rocks. When I swim I love to jump off the swim float. It is a lot of fun! We also do a lot of fishing. We catch bass, picerel, white perch and yellow perch. Somtimes my dad makes the best fish sticks ever! He uses white perch to make them. Yum,Yum,Yum! Sometimes we have a picnic for lunch. Other times we eat in the cabin. It is very cozy in there. There is a kitchen, a bathroom, 3 bedrooms, a dining room, a tiny living room and a screen porch. My Mimi and Gampy live 3/4 of a mile away from the cabins. I really, really love the cabins on Pocomoonshine Lake. I hope it is summer soon!
