The Unforgettable Day

By Tom Morrison
Once, my dad and l had an unforgettable day. It was fall and we were going to do some yard work. I like the fall for many reasons. I like jumping in the leaves in the fall. I like playing with my friends at school, which starts in the fall. People call it fall because it’s the season that the leaves fall down.

At our house, we saw that most of the leaves had fallen. My dad noticed 2 dead tree branches. We went outside and my dad climbed up his ladder and yanked them down. “AWESOME!!!!” l yelled, running towards the fallen branches. I grabbed 2 other sticks and pretended they were swords and I pretended that the bigger branch was a dragon. I attacked with my swords. Once I was done slaying the dragon, (or branch,) l helped my dad cut him up into firewood with a two-person saw. We made 3 piles: Large sticks, medium sticks, and small sticks. When we finished that, I cut up the other dragon. We brought the piles of sticks down to the driveway. We put them there because we have a fireplace built into the stone wall next to our driveway. Those sticks are still in our driveway right next to our fireplace.

Fall also has 2 of my favorite holidays. Halloween and Thanksgiving. They are, at least what I think, very fun.

The end.

You are an amazing kid! I still have the photo I took of your drawing of an elephant last year. Everyone that I show it to thinks you are very talented. I tell them it runs in the family, HA!

That was a creative story; I could picture everything in my mind :)

Hopefully I'll get to see you and your family in 2008!
