Dogs by: Ellie

If you go outside and go for a walk how many people do you see? How many of those people have dogs? The answer is a lot. Many people have dogs and many people have cats, but dogs are much cuter! Dogs are loyal and they are like your own free security system. I like dogs because they know exactly how you feel. They know if you are happy and they will play. If you are sad they will comfort. If you are mad they will leave you alone. They also will act like they just had a super-size cup of coffee but all in all dogs are cute and they will be an energetic companion.

Mudslide Fun! By: Ellie M.

While I was at Camp Cheerio I went down the mudslide, which is so much fun. I was very scared because the pool of water that I went in has a visibility level of about 1 inch. I was very scared but the counselor said that the other girls didn’t go until the very end and they regretted not going sooner. So I waited a few minutes and watched people go down the slide. They were going pretty fast down the slide. I was not surprised though because the slide was very steep. One person did a face first landing straight in the water because he sat up at the end and the momentum shot him straight into the water. This made me not want to go down so I waited a few minutes, but against my own will I went down. I lay down on the the tarp. I crossed my knees and the counselor pushed me down. I was scared going down the slide, but when I plopped in the pool I wanted to do it again. The original with the mud visibility was now almost gone as I went down the slide many more times, and by the end of the day my feet were all muddy.
