Be Quiet

“ Sit down and be quiet!” “Ha, Ha, Ha!” is the reply I get. My little cousins run back down the hall defiantly. “Why on earth did I agree to babysit them?” I think to myself. I don’t even know if I’m going to get paid!
I was babysitting my little cousins while my aunt ran some errands. Then my aunt walks in and says they are really hyper because they were on medicine. “Great” I thought they would never settle down. What was I going to do?
After,I get them inside and they are just a talking ‘Madi can we play blocks?” “Madi can we get out the Lego’s?” Finally, I said “Ok, let’s go play blocks.” So, we went and played blocks for a little while. After we played blocks we played several different things. We played Lego’s, Barbies, cars, school, and dress up. I knew that they would probably be ok to play a while on their own so I decided to go and watch a movie. Through out the movie, I was listening to them while I was watching, and I thought they were doing ok so I stopped listening. That was a big mistake. Chaos came running at me like a bull. “Madi, Madi, Madi”. Something must have gone wrong or they were bored. I knew they wouldn’t listen if I was nice so I knew I was going to have to yell. “Everyone sit down NOW!”I scream. “No!!”they yell back. “Ugh kill me now!” I thought. Never in my life had I ever been that frustrated.
“Calm down.” I tell myself, “What can I do to calm them down?” Then it hit me. “Hey, Jaci and Peyt, do you want a snack and a movie?” Yes, yes, yes!!” was their reply. I figured that they would want to sit down and eat because they were probably hungry.
They sit down and start watching Frozen. I pop some popcorn and we have a pretty good afternoon. We played a little after that,but then their mother came and picked them up. If I learned anything from that experience, it’s that if you give kids food they are angels.

The Best Summer Ever

It was July 2nd,my birthday!My family was at my grandparents house.I thought I wouldn’t get any presents.I knew it would be a fun day but I wasn’t expecting anything extravagant. I didn’t believe what came next.

My Nana and Aunt said for me to close my eyes.I did,they led me down the hall towards my room. I felt myself smile. The door opened.

“Open your eyes!”my Nana said. I opened my eyes and screamed! I had a new room!it was purple and animal print. My aunt had took a lamp and duck taped it pink and then painted it sparkly purple. I also got glass flowers,a zebra bed spread ,and a bulliton board! My favorite part was the purple rug.I was so delighted.I gave my Nana and aunt a massive hug each.My cousins were both racing around the room. They loved it too.

I plopped down in my chair and looked around in awe. I adored my room

I learned that I needed to trust in my loved ones.Even though I didn’t think I would get any thing I just trusted in my loved ones and got the best gift of my life!

The Day I Got My Hand Stuck

Last year in school we were coming back from lunch.I was first in line and rested my arm on the railing. I yanked my arm up. It wouldn’t budge! My friend had to get the teacher. We had to use soap. All of my classmates walked by. My face turned cherry red.I didn’t look at any of them.It smelled like soap.  The nurse squeezed soap on my arm. I pulled and pulled ! Finally, POP! my arm came out! Now  I know when things seem bad think of the positives.

2013 and 2014


2013 was a great year. I had so many fun adventures. Right now though, I want to look back on my 3 favorites.               Number 1 : My birthday! I was so excited! I was turning 10! My dad was in Longview and so my mom, dad, and I all went to eat lunch at Cheeburger Cheeburger. That day my burger had cheese,chilli,bacon, hot sauce.guacamole,and pickles. Then my dad gave me a $45 gift card and we all went to the mall. I split the money between Claire’s and Justice. Two things I remember getting were neon lipgloss and hair clips.        Number 2: Shlitterbaun! In August my mom and I went to Shlitterbuan. We had so muck fun. First we went to the old Shlitterbaun. We mostly rode the river rides. They were sooo much fun. The next day we went to the new Shlitterbaun. It was awesome! We rode the Master Blaster. That ride was an up-hill water ride. It was voted best water ride. We also rode the longest river ride ever! I had so much fun  on that trip.      Number 3 : My dad.  That Christmas I got to
see my dad. I went to his house in Lobbock TX. I had so much fun. I got to spend time with him and my family. I stayed for 3 days and then had to go back home. He also came to Longviex on Christmas morning!


I hope 2014 will be a great year. I have made some goals for 2014 and beyond. Here they are.

2 new goals I have: 1 I want to make it to 6th grade. 2 Iwant to make it to college.

1 thing I’d like to stop doing: This year I’d like to stop arguing with my mom.

1 thing I want to learn: I want to learn how to make a Cra-z-Loom Starburst braclet.
