Holiday Recount

On a lovely Sunday morning I quickly hopped out of bed and walked to the bathroom to have a shower, later on while I finished showering I quickly got out of the shower and walked to my room then I gently put on my church clothes and did my hair, then I looked for my shoes later on I walked to the cupboard and opened it then I quickly saw my shoes so I took them out and put them on.

Later on my parents shouted out to my brother and sisters and I “Are you guys ready to go!” then we all quickly shouted back “Yes!” afterwards we all quickly got prepared and drove to church, later on we finally got to church we then quickly hopped out of the car and walked over to the doors of the chapel.

We then opened the doors and walked inside and found a seat for us to sit on, so we gently sat down, a few hours later sacrament meeting finished and all kids had to walk upstairs to their classes including me, while I was walking up I got to my class and I found a seat, afterwards I waited for a while for my teacher, while waiting,  my teacher walked in and sat down then a friend named Maia had to stand up and say who was doing what, so while Maia stood up she had to pick who was doing prayer, theme and song.

While we were waiting Maia picked me to do theme, and assigned 2 others to do a part, later on I had to stand up and say our theme for the year, so I nervously got up then I had to stand up at the front of the whole class and say our youth theme to them then they would have to repeat the same words I said.

Once I finished saying our theme I quickly sat down with a nervous look on my face then while the others were saying there parts I quickly sat up straight and listened, a few hours later class finished and it was home time, when we finished I walked out really quick and walked towards my car, then I stood there waiting for my parents to come, so we could go home.

Waiting Recount

On a sunny Saturday morning I got up and slowly and walked over to the bathroom, I quickly brushed my teeth and washed my face, I then walked back to my room and got dressed ready to go to the basketball courts, while I was getting ready my sisters were too, later on we were all ready to go then we walked out of the front door with excitement.

As we made our way out the door my sisters and I quickly walked to the basketball courts down the road to play shoots, as we got there we had a little rest then we all lined up ready to play master, so we all lined up but someone had to be the master so we looked at each-other then we started arguing, afterwards we kept on arguing a few minutes later we all stopped and just picked anyone to be master.

So my eldest sister became the master, then me and my other sister lined up and waited for my eldest sister to get ready while she was getting ready I sat down on the footpath for a rest, later on we had just  started, so my sister threw the ball to my other sister and started playing shoots, one of them had to get  the ball into the hoop, it took so long that I felt like not playing but I still waited for one of them to get the ball in the hoop, afterwards they started talking and tried shooting the ball into the hoop.

While they were talking I waited for a very long time, they went on about school drama, while I was waiting they stopped shooting and sat down, then I quickly said to them “are we even gonna play” they quickly replied “yes, just wait!” then I quickly sat down as well and looked at them chatting about school drama, I quickly walked over to them and snatched the ball and took it with me I then played shoots by myself while they were still going on about school drama.

Later on that day they got up and said “lets go now!” I looked at them with a shock on my face and said “but you guys have not even played for a while!” then they just told me to “hurry up” so I picked up the ball from the ground and we made our way out the gates, later on we walked home feeling tired and stressed out as we got to our street we all walked up slowly, we then got to our house, later on we all rushed through the front door to our rooms and rested on our beds we then waited to see what was going to happen next.
