To the Coliseum
By Jacob Landis
“Yes!” I screamed. I was going to the coliseum! It is a place where you get to play games. I ran to tell my brother. First, I got one hundred chips on my card. Not real chips. I use the card to play the games. I played a Sponge Bob game and a fishing game too and a lot more. Next, I watched my mom play a game. It was a chip pushing game. She tried very hard and finally got the chip that was worth 300 tickets! Then, I played some more games like whack a shark. When I was done I got prizes. I got Legos and a ball. Now you know it was my luckiest day ever.

Disney World
By Katie Fair
“Yippee!” I yelled. My mom had just told me we’re going to Disney world. In the beginning, we got on an airplane and then we got on a bus. It took a long time to get there. When we got there, we went to our room and put the stuff where it was suppose to be. Then, it was time to go to bed. When I woke up, we got dressed and went to ride rides. The ride I rode was the roller coaster. It was really fun. Next, we went to ride more rides and then we were hungry and we went to eat. I ate a hot dog. It was good. So you can see, I had a lot of fun.

Going to First Grade

Ice-Cream

“Yippee!” I yelled when my family and I got ice-cream. I ordered a chocolate ice-cream cone with sprinkles all over it. It was good! Soon, after that I got my ice-cream. My mom and dad sat on the benches. My sister and I walked by the drive through as we ate and saw the people ordering. Finally, we went home.

My Lucky Day
By Kaley Leas
“Yippee! I won!” I yelled when I won Wee Princess 2009. I was so happy. To begin with, this was one of my competitions down in North Carolina, when I won the Wee Princess 2009 title. I was so excited. To win these big titles I learned you have to work hard. I had to model and do twirling and fancy routines. After I won, I got to ride a limo all around North Carolina. It was fun! Last but not least, that day was a happy day for my family and me. That was a lucky day.

I hope you liked reading about my luckiest day.

My Luckiest Day of my Life
By Sydney Cooper
“Yippee!” I yelled as I was jumping up and down. “I’m getting a cat today!” This was the day my family and I were going to get a new cat. So we went to the SPCA and looked at the cat. We saw a cat that was pretty, cute, smart, and sleepy. When my dad tried to pet the cat it hissed at him. I was scared. Then, we picked the cat out that we liked. We paid for the cat and took it home. We tried to think of a name and my brother, Evan, came up with the name Kaliey. We went out and bought her a pink collar and cat food. Next, we went home again. My mom put on the tag of the collar. That was the luckiest day of my life.

My Luckiest Day
By Ja-Leha Thomas
“Yippee. I yelled. I’m getting a sleepover for my birthday and a lot of people are invited to sleep over. One day my mom told me that my friends were allowed to sleepover. I played my V-Flash with them, but they couldn’t do it right. That’s why I helped them and then they got better at it. Now they know how to play it. After that, we painted, colored, and danced and the winners got a prize. Next, everybody got a bag of candy. Then, we ate it and had fun. Finally, I had a very special day with my friends.

My Luckiest Day
By Rachel Ritchey
“Are we going to get our new cat today?” I asked my mom. She said,“Yes!” I started to get very excited. First, we got in the car and drove to Petsmart. My mom told the lady that worked there, “We’re here to pick up Pumpkin.” The lady went behind his cage and unlocked it. She put him on the table. He said, “Meow.” The girl handed my mom a paper to fill out. Then we took him home in a box. Pumpkin meowed all the way home. When mom and I got home, we opened the box. Pumpkin jumped out of the box right away! Mom put out his litter box. Our new cat ran up stairs and sniffed around. After that, we played with him. That was my luckiest day.

My Lucky Day at School
By Shaun Hinkle
“Yippee!” I yelled as I got out of bed. “It’s camp-in day,” I said to my mom. I got dressed and my dad took me to the bus stop. Then, I got to school. We did our math message. We put our blankets on the blue carpet. We were then going to the gym for walk a mile. At the gym, I was the second one done. After two of the recesses were over, then we did our math minute and I passed. Yippee! The day was over and we went home. That was the best day ever at school.

My Lucky Day
By Alexis Halloran
“Yippee!” I yelled. “We were going to have a camp-in,” I told my mom. She looked at the paper and said, “Go get your sleeping bag.” I hugged her. To begin with, as soon as we got in the door of our classroom, we got to get our sleeping bags out of our bookbags. We got to take our shoes off but not our socks. Then, we put are sleeping bags on the floor. We got to have the lights off. Some people brought their flashlights. My friend had a stuffed animal and so do I. Next time, I am going to vote for camp-in again. I liked it and that was my luckiest day.

My Lucky Day
By Mario Banci
“Are you ready to go?” asked my mom. “You bet!” I said. It was Thursday, the day of my last soccer game against the hardest team. I was ready to try and beat them because they beat us the first time that we had faced them. Once we got there, I found my team and we practiced HARD. Then it was time for the game. Two of our good players were are only chance. In the first quarter the light blue team scored one goal and in the second and third quarter nobody scored. Now it came down to this … the final quarter. It’s all or nothing. We had to play our best. It was an amazing game, but at the end the score was light blue 2 and orange (my team) 1. “We lost,” we all said. Finally, even though we had lost, we all still had an awesome game! That was my luckiest day because it was a really exciting game.

The Best Luckiest Day Ever
By Breanna Harvey
“Yippee!” I yelled. We are going to Knoebels. I’ve never been to Knoebels before. To begin with, I couldn’t wait. Days passed but still I could not wait. Finally, the day came. I was so exited. Then, we got in our big, black, truck with a G.P.S. After that, the trip was a little long. When we got there, I got on a lot of rides. Last but not least, we went home. I could barely keep my eyes open on the way home. That day was the luckiest day ever.

The Luckiest Present Ever
By Shaun Lucas
Yahoo! I shouted. I have got a really good present. After I open all my presents on Christmas day, my brother covered my eyes and walked me to another room. Wahoo! I yelled when I saw my best present. It was an awesome, pearl, drum set that Santa had gotten me. That was my luckiest present and day ever.

The Best Day Ever

“Yeah! Yeah!” I yelled. Today was the day that my family was getting a new puppy. First, my sister and I hopped in the car with my mom and off we went to pick out our new puppy. I was so exited! Not long after that, we arrived at our destination. Then, we looked at all the puppies. Immediately, my family saw one of the smallest dogs. All of us knew that we liked it. Later, my mom asked me what I wanted to name her. I wanted to name our new puppy Angel. (My sister wanted to name her Scooby-Doo). As one can see, it was one of the luckiest days ever. (Make that the luckiest).

The Day I went to Disney World
By Maya Sarver
“Hooray!” I shouted. “It’s time to go to Disney World!” Then I ran for breakfast. I gobbled my breakfast as fast as I could and ran up to my room to get dressed. After that, I walked out to wait for the bus to go to school. When I got to school I felt like dancing. After school I was so excited! But before I went to Disney World I had to go to Baltimore. I stayed there for a night and then I got on a plane at 4:30 A.M. Then, when I got to Florida, I almost had to scream. I went to Hollywood Studios first, then Magic Kingdom, then Epcot, and finally, Animal Kingdom. Going to Disney was a great time and I think that was my luckiest day.
