Mia and I

Do you have things in common with your friends? Well Mia and I have a lot in common: We like the same foods, we love laughing, and most of all we have siblings who do funny things.

 The first reason Mia and I have things in common is we love the same foods. We both like cucumbers, we both like peppers, and we both like tomatoes.  I took out my lunch out my bag, I had my least favorite food (cold chicken with brussel sprouts). I looked at my friend. She looked at me, I smiled and started to put my lunch back in my bag. My hands reached to a halt. I felt a bag in my lunchbag. I reached for that bag and in that bag was cucumbers and peppers. I looked at Mia’s lunch, she looked at mine. She had tomatoes. She said ” I don’t like my lunch.”So we feasted together on tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers.’’Yum’’  we said at the same time’’Jinx’’I said as as I knocked my fist on some wood. The sound of laughter filled the room.

  The second reason Mia and I have things in common is we love to laugh. I like that Mia’s not laughing at me, she is laughing with me. We laugh about what our siblings do, we laugh when we say jokes, and we laugh about funny things in life. I told her a joke, she laughed a crackling laugh. Then I laughed because the laugh I heard sounded witchy. We ended up getting contagious sickness called Spring Laughing.

  The most important reason Mia and I have things in common is we both have siblings who do funny things.’’ Yesterday my brother and I had a fight’’ I said ’’ we were listening to a story my mom’s bed  when I tried to pinch my brother. I miss and I accidentally pinched my mom Mia and I laughed.’’ once my sister was sleeping on the car door, somebody opened it and she fell out the car’’ Mia said.’’ When I was 3 my family was in a hotel I ran out of the shower all happy then my 1 year old sister peed on the floor. I slipped and fell and had to take another shower. We laughed as we shared our stories.

Mia is a really good friend we have a lot in common including we like the same foods, we love to laugh, and most of all we  have siblings that do funny things but that does not make us friends we are friends because she is kind, and she makes me happy when I feel blue. I hope we can stay friends forever…

I love the ocean

To me the ocean is a big playground.The surroundings are the swings, swimmingare the monkey bars,and making pools are the slides. They are each  fun in their own way.Do you leave the playground happy? I do, as well as the ocean. I leave the beach happy is because of the beautiful surroundings, the variety of things to do, and most of all because I love making the pools at high tide.

The first reason that I leave the beach happy is because I love the surroundings.I was at the beach and was in trouble.My parents were mad at me.’’Caterina you have to  sit in a chair for 10 minutes’’ So I did.I looked around and just then I noticed how peaceful the ocean is.The waves crashing,the animals and plants,and even searching for the other side of the ocean.I sunk my feet in the soft sand and relaxed.’’Caterina your 10 minutes are done’’But I stayed put.Thinking how peaceful the ocean is.

 Sometimes I think it is not fair I can only enjoy the beach in the summer or late spring-’Caterina what are you doing’’said my sister in an annoying voice.She was not looking at my face she was looking at my hands.I looked at my handsI was holding a box,dead crabs pooled in vinegar, and some gold seashells.‘’I am going to make a mini beach’’I replied‘’Without water’’she added as she climbed out the car. I dumped the sand in the box,then added the shells and some dead crabs pooled in vinegar.‘’Why should I only enjoy the ocean in the summer and spring.’’I thought The surroundings include plants and shells,the surroundings include animals,and the surroundings include the water.Somtimes I like the sound of water ribging threw my ears. https://youtu.be/qREKP9oijWI?t=133


The second reason I leave the beach happy is because there is a variety of things to do. FACTA daily visit to the beach for my family is 5 to 6 hours so there has to be something to do.  My family and I finally reached the beach. I skipped across the sand to the ocean and crashed into a sign. My siblings helped me up and asked what the sign wrote.’Sorry swimmers but the ocean is closed,there are jellyfish.’’I said. I brushed off, and went to go make sandcastles.My siblings followed. My siblings and I finished making a sand castle city. But then a foot stomped on our city. I looked higher to see that it was a round child. He was about 10 when I was 5. I shivered. He joined his friends and together they walked away laughing.When we tried to make our city again. But they came. The horrible laughing was ringing in my ears. I was starting to lose my patience but I saw a big tear rolling down my brother’s cheak. That was it.I took my siblings to look at the beach and they enjoyed the view. Sometimes you just got to have a lot of tools in you belt for one situation’’I thought. I have the sand,  I have the water, but most of all I have the surroundings.To have step by step instructions to make different sandcastles click the link below.https://www.fatherly.com/play/show-your-kids-how-to-be-king-of-the-sandcastle/

  When I was younger I did not swim, I did not make castles with sand, and I  did not look at life. The whole time I was at the beach I played in the playground.But one day…My father said’’Children you can not play in the playground anymore, figure out something else to to do.’’What am I going to.’’I complained in my head.I was always at the playground that I did not know what else to do. I was always making friends in the playground, but now I can’t see them.I said bye to my friends and left. But one of my friends followed me. We laughed and made castles.’’Maybe I don’t need the playground.’’I thought. Although I come back from the beach happy because of the surroundings and the variety of things to do I mostly come back from the beach happy because I make pools in the high tide.

 It was high tide, I could see the wrinkles in the sand. I helped my parents stick the umbrella in the sand. Then my father said we could play.‘’After I play with the sand do you want to take a walk with me?’’My sister said.‘’Sure’’I replied So my sister went to go make castles.I saw my sisters flip-flops in the sand knowing she does not walk barefoot.I took her shoes and dug a hole.Instantly there was water in the hole.’’I did not pour water in that hole, I just dug it.’’I said.I dug another small hole in the sand there was water once again.I rubbed my eyes in disbelief.I put my sister’s shoes back in its place and took my shovel and dug the biggest hole I ever made.I dipped my foot in the water and noticed it was warm.I dipped my whole body in the water and kicked back and relaxed.’’This is the life’’I said.My siblings and I made a pretty pool.We decided that we should make a ramp so that all the ocean water would come in whenever the wave comes.This pool was so big we each had our own sections.But then two, ten year old kids came and asked if they could play.I hesitated thinking they were strangers. We were the ones who made the pool and now they wanted to come.Then my sister said ‘’sure’’. They came in and our space was limited.But then they started telling jokes and playing with us they wanted a friend.‘’Maybe this is not so bad’’ I thought.Then I started laughing at the joke my new friend had told me.
