One day, Randy's friend, Tom, came over to play. Tom and Randy played war in Randy's backyard. Tom saw Randy's cat, Joseph, enter the backyard, and Tom had an idea. He said, "Hey, let's get the cat and make him jump the fence. It'll be fun!" Randy knew that the only way to make Joseph jump the fence is to scare him. Randy didn't want to scare the cat. But he didn't want to upset Tom, either. Randy finally said, "I don't want to scare Joseph. It really hurts his feelings." Tom said, "Oh, OK. Let's find something else to do. I actually didn't want to scare Joseph either. I just wanted to play something besides war." So Randy and Tom played a different game and left the cat alone.

Describe A "First"

Describe a "first." This assignment will be several days long. Day one should be an outline. Days two and three should be two to three body paragraphs. Day four should be a short introduction and conclusion paragraph. Day five should be editing and adding a photo.

When I was four years old, I got trampled by a horse. I nearly died and had to go to the hospital to get stitches in my head. It was very painful. After that I never wanted to get near or ride a horse again.

One day I went to my friend's house. Her name is Hannah. She has two ponies named Grey and Loretta, and I wanted to ride one. I decided to try Grey, so Hannah's mom put on his saddle and got him ready to ride.

Grey was fun to ride! It was bumpy but I didn't care; I was having a good time. We rode around the yard two times, and then I got off and let my brother and sister have a turn. Afterwards, we went inside and had dinner.

I got a bunch of "congrats," and "good jobs," after dinner, which made me feel happy. Now, every time I go to Hannah's house, I ask if I can ride their pony. Who knows? Maybe next time I will ride a horse!
