Tubing down the river

by makaylaa c., Age 16 , Grade 10, Amery High School, Amery, WI USA
Teacher: Mrs.Ruehlow

Start one place and end another

On our ride we listen to music

 

But that’s not a bother

Because it’s time for our family to en-joy

                                                                                                 

It’s like play time in kindergarten

The tube is the toy

 

 And the water makes us cool.

Most of the time tubing makes a great day

 

Except for when it goes this way...

We get to the end

Right before the bridge comes to a bend

 

We start to pull the tubes from the river

and head towards the van

eventually mom realizes

 that she does not have the keys to van

but it wasn’t a surprise

 

because she tried to keep them on her

tubing down the river for three hours

which wasn’t a smart idea

because she now lost them

 

and we weren’t about to go up stream

too bad this wasn’t a dream

 

because we had to take more than one trip

to the starting point to get everyone back

but luckily, we only live two miles from the river

 

 

Finally we were home,
and we
Ordered a key clone

 

so we could get our van
