Up the stairs and in between the closet and playroom is my room, where my bed is. I love to be in my warm bed because it lets me do whatever. It lets me have dreams and downright fun! With my brother, we play fishing or dragon slayer. My bed is the place to be.

At Sand Lake, I like to ride dirt bikes and four wheelers. When I go to Sand Lake, I see lots of people on a lot of bikes. If you go over the mountain, there will be a cool pretty ocean. There is a trail in the woods. I love to go through the shaded woods. After a while, we go home.

Through the field, past the bushes, and into the woods is my favorite place to be, the forest. At my dad's, I like to go for walks in the forest, among the trails, squirrels, birds and other woodland critters. Every time the wind blows, the trees sway back and forth. I imagine them dancing and singing their hearts out. If there was no forest, my life would be nothing.
My Favorite Place
by Paige, fifth grade writer
Beyond a little black cottage, a little ways in the woods is a trail. A tiny bit of a walk with the sparrows, ducks and beavers and you’re there. Tall pine trees covering your view of the sky.
There I sit accompanied by my dog. My view is spectacular! We sit as we gaze out to the open water. A small waterfall caused by the busy beavers piling their wood can be the loveliest thing you've ever seen. Soon the ducks will have their children. It will be such a sight to see their mama guide them through the water, seeing their first flight!
My dog is fond of the frogs the most. She loves to go wondering wherever the shoreline takes her. If she does get a glimpse of one she will chase them until they escape.
It is such a pleasure to be there! It seems I have been going on too long, so it is time for my story to come to an end. Everyone has a favorite place and it doesn't matter if it’s full of nature or if it’s full of glamour. It’s what it means to you that matters!
