          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.
