Friday Favorite (aka Where I blabber about what I love): Hiking

The weather is hot and dry. The grass is making the girl's eyes water and her throat itchy. She pulls on her grape bubblegum shorts.

I was in every show at my school. I did small parts (a dancing poppy and cyclone in Wizard of Oz) and… Continue reading Friday Favorite (aka Where I blabber about what I love): Finding Neverland
