A day at the creek


Sylvia Elmquist, Reporter

It was warm and sunny when I woke up this morning, and that meant I was going to spend the day outside. When I heard the birds singing in the trees outside my bedroom window I knew it was going to be a wonderful day. I got out of bed and ran downstairs. I quickly showered and changed my clothes, then had breakfast with my family. When they asked me what I was going to do today I told them I was going to spend it down by the creek and then later explore. I headed out the door in a rush, more than excited to see where my day would take me.

I ran to the end of my driveway and stopped to pet my neighbor’s dog. My neighbor came out and said hi to me, and we talked about somethings that have been happening in the neighborhood lately. I turned off my road and onto a dirt one. I walked that for half a mile then took a shortcut in the woods. There was the creek and two of my best friends were already there splashing in the water.

I spent a few hours at the creek till going to my friend’s family blueberry farm. We picked berries and laughed till we couldn’t breath. The sun was starting to set, so I left the farm and met with another friend on top of a big hill. We watched the sun set and they even brought sandwiches that were amazing. After that I walked back home and  fell asleep as soon as I laid down. I was right: today was a wonderful day.
