We’re breaking away from our typical Member Monday to feature a piece by local young writer, Madison Marie McCaffrey. Madison recently completed the second grade at Shasta Lake School and is the second place winner in the Young Writers Contest, sponsored by Writers Forum and Enjoy Magazine. The third place pieces were featured last Monday and the first place piece will be featured next Monday. The winning piece will also be featured in the July issue of Enjoy magazine. The theme of the contest was “Summer Memories”. Congratulations to all of our young writers and welcome, Madison!
My Summer Memory
by Madison Marie McCaffrey
I had a lot of fun during last summer. Here is what I did. I remember when I helped my grandma make ice cream and my cousin Shelly rolled the ice cream in a can back and forth to me. Afterwards we all ate the ice cream. Then we went to bed.
After I spent a week with Shelly, I went to San Diego and spent three weeks with my cousins Marcus and Sean. We went to the beach, Seaworld Park and a lot of other places. When we got home we played video games and Hide-and-Seek. Then we got comfortable on the couch and played more video games. I fell asleep while playing the game.
The next morning we got up and went upstairs and wrestled. It was fun. I totally got hurt, but it was funny. Then we went inside the guest room and jumped on the bed. Then we put on our swimsuits and jumped into the pool. I made a big splash! Then we dried off and went inside and acted like we were having a party. We all had so much fun singing and dancing along with the music. My cousin Marcus used his phone to make a spotlight. Then we went to take a nap.
Then it was time to go home. I was sad, but my mom cheered me up by letting me have a friend over to swim in the pool. Then we dried off and rode bikes. We acted like it was Bike to School Day. Then we played Dress Up. We were looking really cute. I wanted her to spend the night, but it was my first time having a friend over so we just had a small playdate. She went home and my mom gave me a popsicle. I felt happy and sad, but I just went in my room and watched T.V.
These are a bunch of fun things I did over the summer. I might do similar things this summer, maybe, just maybe.
