Ben shot off his new toy rocket.
"That was awesome," said Carmen.
"Ya," replied Ben.
"I wish I could do it again, but it flew so far away I can't find it."
"Well let's go find it!"
Then they looked all through the park. Carmen yelled, "I found it!" and
then came sprinting towards Ben. Carmen then tripped over a tree root
but the rocket was right there, so Ben grabbed it. They took it back to
the launching pad and then it took off but luckily Carmen kept an eye on
it and followed it all the way to where it landed. Carmen and Ben walked
back home and then Ben wished Carmen luck on her math test that she had
the next day.
Ben and Carmen walked to school and their teacher gave them their math
tests. Carmen tried as hard as she could and finally she was finished at
the end of the day. She walked back to her house with Ben and said, ďI
really hope I get an A+ on my math test.Ē Just then they got to their
houses and said bye.
Finally today she would get her results on her math test. She crossed
her fingers as she walked into the classroom. She sat down at her desk
and her teacher gave her the math test with a mark on it. She closed her
eyes, flipped it over, and opened her eyes and saw that she had got an
A+ on her math test! Her smile was so big that her mouth got sore. When
she walked back to her house with Ben and told him that she got an A+,
Ben said that he got a B- but he didnít care.
Next week was Canada Day, and they wanted to go to the fireworks, but
they didnít have any way to get there, so Carmenís mom was going to
drive them. Carmen walked up her front stairs, put her backpack on the
table, and showed her mom her A+. The next day Ben told Carmen that he
was getting a dog and said that it was going to be a puppy. But Monday
was Canada Day, and Ben was getting a dog on Canada Day, and Carmen
wanted to go with him to get the dog, so they just skipped all the
events that were in the daytime and went to the fireworks at night.
Carmen and Ben went to the park and played for the rest of the day.
Carmen went home and told her mom what she was doing on Monday.
Today was Monday. Carmen got ready and went to Ben's house. Carmen rang
his doorbell and his dad answered and said that they were going all the
way to the country. Carmen didnít really care as long as they got back
for the fireworks. Ben and Carmen and Ben's dad drove all the way
through Calgary and finally they got to Airdrie. They got out of the car
went into the pet shop, and Ben chose out a puppy golden retriever.
Carmen followed them to get a chew toy, treats, food, grooming supplies,
a bed, and a water and food dish. They bought all the stuff and then
went back to their house just in time for the fireworks. Carmenís mom
drove them downtown to see the fireworks. They went to the Lions Bridge
to watch the fireworks go off. They were all different kinds of colors -
red, blue, orange, pink, green, purple and yellow. There were ones that
curved as they were going up in the sky. There were ones that exploded
in the sky.
"This is the coolest thing I have ever seen!" said Carmen.
"Me too," said Ben.
The fireworks stopped around 9:30. Carmen's mom came and picked them up
then dropped Ben off first and then they parked outside Carmenís house
and went in. Carmen told her all about the fireworks - how bright they
were, how colorful they were, and how cool they were. Carmen wanted to
take her mom to them next year.
