A Wild Mustang has a Friend



A Wild Mustang has a Friend

(age 8)


Once there was a wild mustang.  His name was Judson.  He liked to buck a lot.  He bucked every cowboy off.  (They did not like the wild mustang.)  Pretty soon nobody came to see him.  

He made a friend.  It was a tiny field mouse.  The field mouse’s name was Eliot.  He liked to scurry about.  He would also scold the wild mustang. 

Judson thought it was very funny.  When he did, the field mouse would scurry into the ground.  When the field mouse did that, the horse stopped laughing.  When he stopped laughing, the field mouse came out.  Then Eliot told Judson that he wasn’t being very nice.  

Eliot said, “That makes me feel sad.”  

Then Judson said, “I am sorry.  Will you forgive me?”  

Eliot said, “Yes!”  

They discussed kindness until suppertime.  They went into the stall and ate some hay and went to sleep.  In the morning they woke up, read their Bible, and did their devotions.  

Judson said, “I will go make eggs and toast.”  Judson and Eliot ate breakfast after Judson cooked it on the wood stove.  After breakfast they would go exploring.  They found all sorts of thing: eggs, boards, and books by the dozen.  

And they lived happily ever after playing with each other.  

The End

The Striped Spider



The Striped Spider
by 
Samantha Wiley
(age 8)


Once there was a striped spider.  It had pink, and purple stripes.  It lived in a river that flowed fast.  The spider’s name was Sharlet.  The trip to the ocean was very long.  It made a house out of sticks that looked like the sand it was walking on so they wouldn’t see her stripes and a bird wouldn’t eat her.  She met a couple of friends along the way.  She met a bird.  His name was Jason.  Jason went on the journey to the ocean with her.  He flew above that house that the spider made to make sure it was safe and chirped loudly at whoever wanted to pick it up.  Isn’t Jason funny?  

Sharlet and Jason met another friend.  She also was a bird.  Her name was Emily.  She was a seagull.  Whenever she saw a fish, she would fly towards it and catch it.  Emily would catch food for her, Jason, and Sharlet in case they run out of food.  They walked along the river.  The end of the river wasn’t long from the ocean.  Sharlet created a web across the river and the ocean to separate them.  So, they settled down there for the night.  That night a whale got caught by the web and wriggled about, and that broke the web.  

In the morning Sharlet found the whale wriggling in the water with the web around it.  Sharlet went into the salty water and tried to get the sticky web off the whale.  Sharlet helped the whale by pulling him out of the water onto land and took the sticky, wet web off of him.  Then Sharlet, Jason, and Emily pushed the whale back into the river.  They all made friends.  The whale’s name was Trenton.  They all lived happily ever after catching fish in the webs Sharlet made and eating them at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Okay.

WAAAAAAA!
That doesn't sound right.
Oops! The music sheet is upside down.
La, la, la. . . .
All this practice is making me tired. I'm going to take a nap again.

The First Thanksgiving




The First Thanksgiving 
by
Caylyn Colburn
(age 8)

Long ago, a group of people called the Pilgrims travelled from Holland on a ship called the Mayflower. The ship sailed across the ocean. 

For awhile the trip was nice and smooth, but all of the sudden a terrible storm came up. The ship tossed back and forth for days. Then as suddenly as it had begun it stopped. The Pilgrims we're thankful to God. So they kept on sailing. 

Finally, they saw land. They rejoiced happily. 

Then the captain came up to them. "This is Cape Cod", he said. Later, a group of men went off exploring for a place to live. 

A few weeks later, they returned! They had found a good place! Soon, they started off toward their new home! Soon they had built a town. They called it Plymouth. 

One day, an Indian walked into Plymouth. His name was Samoset. Another day he brought Squanto. Squanto taught the Pilgrims how to plant corn. The harvest God gave them was so plentiful that the Pilgrims decided to have a holiday of Thanksgiving. This feast lasted for 3 days!

The end.

News in the Bayside West Neigborhood


News in the Bayside West Neighborhood
by
Sena Carlson
(age 11)


Bayside West is an exciting and interesting place! The small neighborhood in Owls Head, Maine, has raccoons, foxes, mountain lions, turkeys, and other similar animals.

One day, about ten years ago, Nichole Harvey, one of the neighborhood's residents, was walking with her sister on Bayside West Street and saw something that looked very much like a cougar at her neighbor, Jimmy Haul's, house. Nichole immediately grabbed her sister, Heather, who was very small at that time, and walked as fast as she could, cutting through another neighbor's yard and running home the rest of the way to tell her mother. This is only one of the strange, rare sightings of mountain lions or cougars. Owls Head also has turkeys. These animals are very common and love to go on the resident's lawns. There will probably be many more rare sightings and discoveries in this small neighborhood.

Years ago, one of the residents in the Bayside West neighborhood would secretly put a plastic Easter egg filled with big jelly beans on each neighbor's lawns every Easter morning. Then the lady moved away. Oddly, though, the jelly beans kept on coming! The residents of that neighborhood to this day do not know who puts those mysterious jelly beans on their lawns every Easter morning.

Lab Rat - Parts Seven and Eight

LAB RAT

Elias Cooper
(age 11)


Chapter 7
Jaden Goes Wild

He screamed so loud that Caleb and Jasper stopped in shock long enough to be taken out be Electra and Windwhip. Then Jaden jumped at Frankenstein. Both of his fists were blazing with fire. His shoved one fist up Frankenstein’s left nostril and sent the other in a roundhouse punch crashing into the big guy’s right cheek. 

Frankenstein bellowed and threw Jaden off. But it was too late. The surprise and shock were so great that the world’s latest version of the Incredible Hulk fell all the way down the Empire State Building. He crashed in such fury that there was a tiny earth quake. 

Jaden  expelled the fire from his hands in an aimed shot at Electra. He guided the fire with his mind so that it dodged her desperate attacks of lightning. The flames rammed into her just as she made a weak electric shield. The force pushed her off the edge. Jaden’s whole body burst aflame and he shot the different fireballs in different directions. He guided them all with his mind, sending seven fire balls smashing into Drone. 

The human robot landed on the building to rest, only to be enveloped in a circle of fire. He ran wildly through the flames, heating up his metal body.But in his wild run, he was not looking and fell off the building. 

Victoria tried to move the fire bolts with her mind, but Jaden too many under his control. He sent many streaks of flame into Victoria. She crumpled to the ground. 

Alpha  had gotten his wolves up the building. But Jaden made a ring of fire so big that the wolves retreated. Alpha turned into a six foot long wolf, and commanded that the wolves return. But Jaden singed all the wolves with red hot fire and the beastly dogs ran away for good. 

Wolf Alpha shrugged and launched himself at Jaden. But Flaming Fire punched him in the nose. Alpha himself ran after his wolves. Then Terra shot mud, dirt, rocks, and plants at Jaden, but he deflected them all and punched Terra the old style way. She too, was taken out. 

Windwhip melted into the air but Jaden made a blazing fireball that heated up the air so much she came back out, gasping with pain and sweating from the heat. She retreated in the wind again, but this time leaving the battle. The only one left was Valor. He took one look at the fireball in Jaden’s hands and took a step backwards. “This isn’t over, you brat! Fire Thug!” he snarled. 

“Fire Thug my foot!” Jaden called after Valor’s rapidly retreating figure. 

Jasper stirred from his unconsciousness. Caleb was still out cold. Jasper took one look around and said, “What’d I miss?” Jaden laughed so hard that he almost threw up. “A lot.”

Chapter 8: 
We Still Got Work To Do

The next day the newspaper headlines said U.S.H DEFEATED! GIANT SUPERHERO BATTLE! A SUPER-VILLAIN GIRL FOUND IN BUILDING!

The papers said that Maya got medical treatment but was in prison. No one knew how she survived Frankenstein’s attack.

“We have to break Maya out of jail!” Jaden said urgently.

“I know.” said Jasper.


“Yep,” said Caleb. “We still got work to do.”
