DewTour Three days before the surprise day, at the Chateau, my brothers were guessing. They got where wewere going right, but our grandparents lied, and so we didn’t know. The surprise day had come and we arrivedat the TD Garden in Boston. We knew what we were doing. We were going to a skateboarding show called theDewTour. We got into the show and skateboarders were signing autographs. So Joe and JT threw their hatsdown to the skateboarders on the floor. But I didn’t have a hat, so I thought I couldn’t get anything auto-graphed. Then, I decided to throw my shoe down. Someone autographed it and threw it back up to our seatsin the balcony. We stayed for almost the whole show and liked everything about it, especially the skateboard-ers doing tricks on the ramp. We were appreciative that our grandparents did that forus. And that was something kind someone did for me. By Jared Kyle’s Surprises “Kyle I can’t come to your house”. “Why he said talking to me”. “Because your dad and Trevor are sick” you should come to my house” .Okay he said. I hear the back door open. “It’s Kyle,” my mom. Said I was downstairs so Kyle came downstairs. What’s this? I wonder. It’s for my baby cousins. A dinosaur and two cars! So about thirty minuets later they’re here so Kyle and I play with them. They go upstairs so do we. I ask Kyle “Do you want to have a remote control car race”? He says yes. Every bodies playing we play for a half in hour and they had to leave. I asked my mom if I could use her lap- top. She says yes. Kyle helps me make a Roblox account. [You are a Lego person in a Lego world play- ing games]. So I play for a while. Now, it’s Kyle’s turn to use his account. He’s a V.I.P on the game we’re game playing so he can say a magic word and gets $500,000. So I see this guy named Luke bunny who only has $90 and I show Kyle and he starts walking towards Luke bunnys house says his word and donates $500,000 to Luke bunny. I was amazed. Those were Kyle’s surprises. By Noah VACATION Over vacation, I was out- side and having a lot of fun. But it was getting late and my mom usually brings me in but she no- ticed that I was busy and didn’t bring me in until I was totally fin- ished out side. By Kyle
