11: I Spy | The Sinking Ship The waves crash onto a surviving ship Making it start to roll and tip Covering the wooden planks Sailors' faces showing blanks The mass on the ship starts to tear People losing things they can't bear Lightning cracking, thunder booms Water flooding all the rooms Salty water floods our heads All we see are blues and reds In little boats we turn around And see our life's work slowly floating down | Paris The Eiffel Tower stands tall and proud Throughout the Paris city With skies so blue and so many clouds And puppies chasing kitties | by Lauren November, 2008 | Forward To move along to move along forward not back, Forward To be pushed to push forward not back, Forward To run to run forward not back, Forward Forward to a great, great achievement. | Into the Dishwasher My cousin was very dirty and very, very mean so I put him in the dishwasher to make him shiny clean I pressed the ON button to see what would happen SWISH SWASH SWISH SWASH He was never mean again. | I spy two rocks, a quarter, a die, A string of small buttons, and eight little eyes. A pink and green turtle, a sunflower clip, A see-through watch, and a bug that's tipped.

17: Honor Choir February 10, 2011 | Lauren had been sick all week prior to the performance, but she refused to miss it. The bus left bright and early for Brookings. It was Thursday, her first day all week without a fever. But, by the time we arrived in Bkgs to watch the performance at 4:30 p.m., I could see in her eyes that the fever had returned. She still had a big grin, sung her heart out, and loved every minute.
