I was in Ms. Roger's first grade class. It was specials times when this crazy scene happened. "Beep, beep, beep!" I listened as Mrs. Mayfield made the announcement. "Attention, everybody we are having a tornado drill!" I looked around and saw that everyone looked scared. "All boys and girls in the girls restroom, I repeat, I all boys and girls in the restroom." So we all went towards the girls restroom. I could see everyone squished tightly in the restroom as I walked up to the wall and got into position. I remember smelling a bad odor, it was very stinky.
When it was over, I felt relieved because I could stretch out my legs. It felt like we were in there for days. I learned that you always need to be ready for anything.

I was at my grandparents pool having the time of my life swimming and pretending to be a fish because I love the water. I asked my aunt Kate if she could teach me how to dive because I want to be a pro. she said, "Sure, why not?" So she showed me how to start on the side because I wasn't ready for the diving board. When I started on the side , she rolled me off because I was all curled up and I could roll. When I was done doing it a couple of times, she knew and I knew I was ready for the diving board. I was on the board prepared and set. I was in my position and focused, but I was also nervous because I was high up. So my aunt asked, "Are you ready?"
I was thinking and wondering, "Would I dive or should I give up?" I knew that I should dive instead. When I came on the board in my position, I was ready to jump off and do something great. When I jumped off I was thinking about splashing into the water proud. I was imagining that it would be good luck for me to jump off the diving board and go straight into the water being happy as always, but frightened that I wouldn't make it into the water as strong. I was also nervous that I would hurt my face on the water when I got in. I landed straight into the water. When I came up from the water, I felt good to be in the water and I was surprised. It was a good feeling!

I was sitting on the couch with the five cats I love until my mom said, " Gage come here." She said we have to sell the cats but I didn't want to sell them but mom said so and plus we needed the money. In the afternoon I heard a knock and Mom answered. It was a tall man in a suit. He said " I saw the sign outside, 5 cats for sale."
He took two and both were my favorites. I remembered the time I woke up and the cats were sleeping with me. But it was over now I have nothing, the last couple took the rest. A few weeks later we go a dog and cat and I have no idea where they came from.
