She is nice to me, but we fight. But I still love her because she’s my sister and I love her.
Rockets are awesome. They go to space. Since the gravity from earth pulls the spaceship down, it needs rocket boosters.
The rocket boosters push it into space. In space there’s no gravity so it can release them. They land in the water. There’s a boat waiting with a crane. It picks them up then they can be reused. When the rocket is finished the gravity from earth pulls it in.
It has a parachute to stop it. It also has wheels. It needs special tiles because the atmosphere could make it catch fire with these.
The world is very big. Black holes are very big. To the sun is very big too.
A whirlpool is too. I love the world.
I like cheetahs. They can outrun a car. Cheetas are fast. Cheetahs go fast because they rest a long time.
Lions and hyenas sometime steal a cheetah’s meal. Cheetahs live in savanas.
Cheetahs are like camouflage because in the tall grass, you can’t see them and then they jump out on their prey. It’s prey is gazelles.
Shelby is my family’s dog. She is a very good dog.
She knows a lot of tricks. She knows how to lay, sit, and shake hands. I love Shelby a lot.
