We were best friends since first grade, or at least I was her best friend when she wanted me to be. I was always friends with her, but she would dump me in an instant for someone better as she always said, “you’re my bestie.” Every time I heard her say that last year I would go home and cry my eyes out of my mom. She signed up to do dodgeball with me and when I went to do it she didn’t want to anymore and left me. Finally I couldn’t take it any more so I sat at a different table at lunch and she TOLD me, not asked me, to come sit back with her. When I said that I could sit where I wanted she was so ticked at me.
It was a sunny day in the city of paramount in California , today is a special day because mother is coming home from a meeting that was hosted by the N.A.A.C.P. , hours went by and mother was at her home. I was dying of excitement, I think that the meeting was about stopping segregation in California. Mom was driving up the driveway, I saw the excitement in her eyes as she would get off the car. We all rushed inside and sat on the table and then mother spoke "I have really good news today we were told that our black kid and friends will be able to go to a white school '.
It wasn’t supposed to happen that way – The day was filled with the air of excitement as her teammates began to gather for the game. Jill never thought they would make it to the playoffs but here they were at Myrtle Beach. Always a fun place to visit nut no time for fun right now as the hard work was just beginning. She could hear her parents on the sidelines calling her name and cheering her on. So cool!
It was an overwhelming victory for the whole team, and everyone was ecstatic. With all of the exciting energy in the air, Kelsey forgot about her injury. The following morning she went to visit Dr. Reynolds and discovered that she had torn ligaments in her thumb. “They told me I could wait six weeks and see if it got any better, or I could have surgery that coming Friday. I was so overwhelmed but of course I wanted to heal quickly so I opted for surgery,”
It seemed to me that she was getting worried about me. I rushed on over to Tropical Smoothie, to pick out her favorite smoothie, the kiwi quencher. I just know Kendall is sitting at home, thinking about me at this moment. I was still pretty far away from Tropical Smoothie, about ten minutes. Then had to drive all the way to her house, which is about another ten minutes from Tropical Smoothie.
After 7 turns it finally worked and we were back on schedule only back an hour due to car issues which was okay as long as we could keep going. Not only 2 miles later we were back on the side of the road dealing with this stubborn foreign car. With 4 hours of constantly driving it and it breaking down we finally made it to the exit that was 5 miles up the highway. At this exit we were all confused why this was happening to us. It seemed like our vacation was slowly crumbling in front of us.
For the longest time had I been asking to go here, the day has finally came. I was nine then, my first time at Cedar Point (other then when I was like two or three but I don’t count that) and for most of the car ride I was all smiles. My family would look out and see who could be the first one to find the roller coasters. I thought it took forever to get through the car lines-being an anxious and impatient girl- but it was worth it. After we parked, my mom had us put on sunscreen and she took some pictures in front of the big sign.
While my dad went to go rent a Ford Fusion. I was standing around awkwardly twiddling my thumbs since my mom and brother didn’t need any help. We headed out to the car. We had about an hour drive to get to our hotel. During the drive, I either listened to music and
Soon my dad, mom, and two brothers had all found shells and we eagerly looked for more . All of us were excited to take them home with us. My mother told us she wanted us to get a picture with all the shells and everyone groaned loudly. Everybody slowly started to get out of the water and my mom grabbed her camera. It seemed like it took forever for everyone to get to the shore.
My Favorite Trip to Lagoon... This memory was the first time I have ever been in Lagoon. This was around when I was about in 5th grade.The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and the flowers were blooming; ‘Chirp, Chirp, Scream!’. During Summer School, in the middle of the day, my best friend Antonella didn’t come to school because she decided to take a break, and go to Lagoon. I was on the computers playing some games along with some of my other friends.
