AFter tryouts, I made the team, this was back in sixth grade. Now, I am a junior and I never would have imagined I would come so far with this sport. This sport has helped me make new friends, learn new things, and made me angry a lot of times. During volleyball season I get so stressed, it is hard playing a sport while keeping up your grades. But, it is so worth it.
“For how long did she say I will get to stay there and when do I leave” I asked “She said she will need help for the whole summer so you will leave right away when school ends” answered mom That summer changed me into a better person. Before I got the exciting news about me babysitting I was always shy and did not talk much. But since I did not know anyone except my great aunt Maria, I was so scared and I honestly did not know what or who to expect. All I knew was that the couple had three kids; a one year old, a two year old, and a twelve year old. Since I did not know how they looked and I had only talked to Bob on the phone once, so I decided to look him up on
