Hitting the Big Homerun One day a boy decided to join a baseball team. His dad said that he would coach his son's team. The boy's dad got a little carried away on winning. So the boy thought that he wasn't good enough. So he tried to sit out as much as he could. But everybody had to bat and it was the last inning in the final game in the end year tournament. All bases were loaded and there was two out. The first pitch he swung. He missed it. It was a strike. The second pitch was the same thing. Another strike. But on the third pitch he hit it. It was a home run, his first one ever! When he got in his team's dugout everybody on his team was cheering even the best player that always got home runs was cheering. And then he knew his dad was very proud of him because his dad pushed the boy so hard that is how he got the home run.

Weather Trap I was in a open field when the rain came pouring down on me. The sky was gray with deep black clouds that shadowed the ground. A wind came and blew off my hat, that finally had flying lessons. I heard the thunder going Boom!Boom!Boom! I jumped. I was pretty sure it sounded like a bomb just blown. I tried to run back to my cabin but the screeching wind that sounded like an animal in pain was pushing me back. A second later the lightening that was striking the sky hit a tree and almost burned it in half. I was really scared but I couldn't move now for one strange reason. The wind had stopped but the rain was still going at full force. I finally dragged my tired body back to our small cabin. I opened the door and my Mom screamed because at first she didn't know it was me because after I was cleaned up she told I had looked horrible. I laughed and put my freezing cold body in my nice little sleeping bag!

Gone Fishing Once upon a time there lived on the bank of a stream a man and a woman who had a daughter. They never could make up their minds to punish her for her faults or to teach her nice manners; and as for work -- she laughed in her mother's face if she asked her to help cook the dinner or to wash the plates. All the girl would do was to spend her days in dancing and playing with her friends; and for any use she was to her parents they might as well have had no daughter at all. However, one morning her mother looked so tired that even the selfish girl could not help seeing it, and asked if there was anything she was able to do so that her mother might rest a little. The good woman looked so surprised and grateful for this offer that the girl felt rather ashamed, and at that moment would have scrubbed down the house if she had been requested; but her mother only begged her to take the fishing-net out to the bank of the river and mend some holes in it, as her father intended to go fishing that night. Father went fishing at night.
