Workshop a story
Last year, on March 15, I was getting ready for a gymnastics competition called Twisters in Abbotsford, B.C.
I got up at 6:00 am and I was so excited I hardly ate any breakfast. My mom and me drove to the airport in Whitehorse, it is about a fifteen minute drive from our house in Wolfcreek.
We met all of the gymnastics team at the airport, except for Amaya. She left the day after.
We boarded the plane. Cassandra and her mom were sitting rigth beside us so Cassandra and me asked if we could sit beside each other, our parents said yes.
Kelcie wanted to sit with us because there were three seats and she had no one to sit with.
It was my 10th birthday, Moya and Cassandra both gave me a present to open on the plane.
Cassandra stole her brother's DS so we could play it on the plane also.
As soon as we got there, Cassandra and I were so excited. Our moms and us got our own car, it took almost half an hour to get to the cars.
From the ariport we drove to Abbotsford, Cassandra and I were getting bored because our moms could not read the map so we were missing the turn off, when we got there, it smelt like the hotel was close to a farm.
When everyboddy had lunch we decided what to do. All of us wanted to go shopping because we could not go swimming, because Aletta, Gina and Meghan were competing the next day and the water would sofen thier hands so they couldn't compete on bars.
So we went to the mall for about 2 hours, at the mall we found a place that we could play on all different bikes and tredmills.
That night we were going to go to a Mexican restaurant for dinner but thier was a free dinner for all the of the athelets at the gymnastics gym, they had a cake and all the people from our gymnastics club were singing the song "Happy Birthday" to me.
The next day we went to the restarant in the hotel for breakfast and then drove to the place where Aletta,Gina and Meghan were competing, we stayed there untill it was over.
Then after we ate lunch we went to the fun park called Castle Fun Park, it was beside our hotel. Castle Fun Park is an amusment park that has a lot of rides, video games, and two places where you can play mini golf, there is also a go cart track.
On Tuesday, it was Anna's turn to compete, (she was the only one from Whitehorse in her competition), Her competition was in the afternoon so mostly all Cassandra, Amaya and I did was watch television and go to the pool in the hotel. The day after that it was Amaya, Cassandra and me who had to compete. We went to vault first, then bars, beam and floor. There was a team that Amaya called "the purple people crimers". At the end of the competition we went to where the ribons were given out ( I got 8th place on vault with 2 other people).
We did not know that the older girls were going to compete that day also so we had about half an hour to get lunch and come back to the gym.
The next day was our last day in Abbottsford.
That morning we all wanted to go to a restarant that we could get chocolat pancakes for breakfast but when we got there there was a long line and the waitress said that we could be wating for an hour to get a table for all of us. So we went to a different place to get breakfast, by the time we got there it was about lunch time so we had lunch there instead.
After that it was time to bored the plane and go home. Amaya did not come home with us, she went with her dad to see her sister Amber in Victoria. By the time we were home it was around supper time.
My dad and my sister made dinner and then my mom and I had to unpack our bags
I can't wait until next year to go on another competition out of Whitehorse.

Once upon a time there was a little puppy named Emma. She was really sad because she had no friends. So she went home to have supper. Emma told her mom that she needed a friend. Her mom said that a new familly from the other side of town moved in down the street, and maybe you could make a new friend with their little girl the same age as you, why don't you go see if they are home. So Emma went to see if they where home. She nocked on the door, Ali the mom , opened the door .
"Who are you?"said Ali.
Emma said, "I am a little girl that lives down the street and I want to be friends with your little girl". "Ok", said Ali, "I just have to go get her", "I'll be right back".
When she came back Katie , the little girl said "Hi", "I want to be your friend do you want to come to my room and play with some of my favorite toys".
"Please", said Katie.
The little puppy said yes, "but I have to go tell my mom and dad first ","ok".
Emma went to tell her mom that she was going to play with her new friend Katie.
When Emma got back to Katie's house she was playing and playing intell they both fell asleep. Ali took Emma back to her house.
"Thank you" said Emma's mom, "maybe your familly would like to come for supper tonight".
"Ok, I'll go get Tom and Katie, and maybe I can make a salad and some patatoes. I'll be back in two hours with the rest of the familly."
"Good-bye for now" said Emma's mom.
So Ali made the patatos and wonderd what to put in the salad, I now what to put in it maybe some tamato's, lettuce,onions and a little bit of dog treats. They went to Emma's house , the table was all set and Emma was ready to play with Katie. What do you want to play first asked Emma. I want to play Scrable, said Katie. Let's start playing. I go first, they where playing intel katie had to go home.
