1: My name is Scout. Dill and I are best friends. I like to play all summer long.
2: MY LIFE | I love to play outside a lot. One of my favorite games to play is pretending that Jem, Dill and I are the Radley family. When it snowed outside, me and Jem made an awful good looking snowman . My teacher doesn't like that I can read and write but Atticus taught me. Atticus is my dad and I am very proud of him. He stood up to everybody when he took on a case that he couldn't win. I couldn't ask for a better life and a better place to live. Only if Aunt Alexandria would leave then my life would be better. Auntie wants to make me more womenly but I am content with being a tomboy.
3: DILL | Dill is my bestfriend. Me and him are going to get married one day. Unfortunately right now Dill can only visit us in the summers when school is out. He is obsessed with getting Boo to come outside and creates plans to get him to come out. I really like that he sees things fairly no matter who is involved.
4: JEM FINCH | Jem is my older brother. All summer long we play outside with Dill. He has changed a lot but that just comes with getting older. When Bob Ewell tried to attack us he saved my life. Although he can be weird and gets mad sometimes a better brother does not exist in this world.
5: Mrs. Dubose's house is a scary place. As a punishment Jem had to go over there and read to her every day for a month! What we didn't know was that Mrs. Dubose was trying to get off of morphine. Atticus explained it to us and he says we should have respect for her. I am having a hard time getting over how bad she smelled. | Mrs. Dubose with a neighbor
6: Yesterday Jem, Dill, and I saved Atticus' life! A couple of mean looking men started talking to him. When we went up to them and started talking I realized one of them was Walter Cunningham's dad. After I told Mr. Cunningham to say hi to Walter for me all of the mean men left. Later, Tom thanked Atticus for saving his life from those awful men.
7: During the Halloween party I was a ham. It was a simple costume that was made of wire mesh. The costume along with Jem and Boo's heroics helped to save my live when Bob Ewell attacked me.
8: There were a couple of things that Boo left for Jem and I that were important to me. The most important of all was the blanket he put around us during Miss Maudie's fire. He was so careful with putting it around us that we didn't even realize it was there until Atticus told us about it!
9: I think I'm beginning to understand why Boo Radley's stayed shut up in the house all this time...it's because he wants to stay inside (Lee 227).
