It glides through the canyons of love. It moves at speeds faster than you can imagine. Spreading eternal love upon valleys, canyons and mountains. It soars over streams and meadows.

Jennifer VanScoyk Grade 8 Willamina Middle Steve Werth Grade 10 Wiilamina High School THE DAY I GOT MY TONSILS OUT When I got my tonsils out, it was second week of school, September eleventh. I was seven. I couldn't drink or eat anything after midnight. I woke up about six o'clock in the morning. Morn said, "Todays your big day." I smiled. I had to go to Mac Hospital at 9 A.M. Soon it was time to go. I got in the car. We drove to the hospital. I went in to the waiting room. Morn read me a story called "The Day I Got My Tonsils Out." Then Doctor Pfendlar came in to the waiting room. "Why, good morning" he said. I covered up my face with my hands. I was scared. I went into the recovery room. It had lots of beds with white sheets on them. I laid down on the fourth bed. About an hour later at 10:00 1 went into surgery. They put two sensors on my back. Sensors are fastened to the monitor by wires. They put a mask on my nose out of which came sleeping gas. I quickly went to sleep and woke up still in the surgery room yelling for ice. It was about 11:30. Then I went back to sleep and woke up in the recovery room. My voice sounded low and dark. 1 had to drink eight tiny cups of water before I could go home. It stung my throat. But I was sure glad to go home. The End. Melissa Togstad Grade 2 Fauiconer Elementary .. , CLASS OF TODAY WHAT AM I?

Sarah Peer Grade 5 Chapman Grade MEMORIES Do you ever wonder why the things done in times past, always seem to slip away, and never, ever last? TED Jacob Pelzer Grade 5 To me it seems things happen, sometimes without a clue, and then simply fade away, like a cloud in skies of blue. It's strange how things have a way of, slipping into time's endless folds, so we should just be content, and see what the future holds.
