Do you like Brain Gym? I do. We can jump on a mat like a frog. Then we walk on a balance beam. We bounce a ball. I think Brain Gym is fantastic.
I have a cat. His name is Garfield. He plays with me! He is orange with stripes. He lives out doors. Garfield sleeps in the garage. My cat has lots of toys. He is a stray.

Princess’s foot hurts because she bumped it on the table. I love my dogs because they are cute and sometimes they come into my room at night.
St. Patrick’s Day
By Hannah Berkebile
Do you know when St Patrick’s Day is? Well I do. It was the night before St Patrick’s Day. I set up traps and every thing I could think of. That night I heard a little squeak saying help. I hurried over there and quick picked up a leprechaun. I said “You’re trapped!”
“Oh please let me go’’ he begged.
“No” I said.
“Fine then I’ll bite your nose”
“Oh no! You won’t” I said
“You know I’m really tricky”. He told me.
And then with that he ran off. I chased him and I got him. “Mother help me” he screamed “This girl won’t let me go” “Coming sweetie” She swished her magic wand. The wind started to blow. Then it was absolutely still. And with that they were gone.
I started to cry. Then the mom said “Bye bye” and I said “Bye bye I love you”
“Me too” she replied
“Come on” she said to her son.
“Ok.” he said.
They lived happily ever after.
