Mrs. Sealey’s Sixth Grade Classes At Holy Cross
I had a dream where I was at my house and across the street in my neighbor’s driveway there was this huge truck. I walked over to it. The truck was on and had the keys in it with the window open. I got in it and it went backward down the driveway with the door open and me hanging on. The parking brake wasn’t on so that’s probably why it rolled backward. I got in the truck and steered it into the road and it started rolling forward down the street. I steered the truck down the streets of the North area. Somehow I got to my brother’s school and that’s where the truck finally stopped. I got out of the truck and saw a few of my school friends. Next to the school there was a public bus so my friends and I got in the public bus. I didn’t tell the bus driver where my location was so I didn’t know where I would get off. We arrived to this random park and got off the bus. I looked around when I got off and saw this big building. I walked to it and went inside and saw my mother rehearsing a meeting. I said to her that I wanted to go home because I was freaked out about what happened. So she took me home!

I love fall! It might not be my favorite season of the year, but I do love fall. I just love all the colors of the leaves and how sometimes it’s sunny outside, not too cold or not too hot. That’s one of the things I love about fall and there are more. I also love Halloween. I love Halloween because it’s the time of the year when I can scare people and watch scary movies (which I love). They are my favorite kinds of movies, but they have to be funny too. My brother likes them, but he sometimes is scared. When he is around I put the volume up and he just screams and tells me to put it down. I just laugh at him. Anyways, another thing I love about fall is Thanksgiving because of the FOOOOOD!!! That is one out of the many chances of the year that I get to eat a lot of food!!! I also love Black Friday because I get to go out and buy things that are useful to me like clothes, shoes, and other stuff that are not useful but I still want. Those are all the things I love about fall. All the memories I have made and all the memories that are waiting to happen.

Thanksgiving is a time when you get together and spend time with family and friends. At Thanksgiving my mom always makes the best pumpkin pie and turkey. Sometimes we invite people over to eat with us. Last time we went to our papa’s house and ate, and it was fun to eat at his house even though my mom was making the whole entire meal! It was still good. Have a good Thanksgiving!

One day I had a dream that I was walking through a corn field. When I eventually got to the end I saw a young girl in a muddy ripped dress swinging on a swing that hung from an old oak tree. I started to walk closer and heard she was singing. The little girl’s voice was cracked and raspy. Eventually, she vanished and the swing vanished with her! That was my craziest dream!

Fall is my favorite time of year because it is the perfect weather and Halloween and Thanksgiving are around the corner. I love that all the leaves are changing colors. I also like playing volleyball which is in the fall. In fall you get to go outside and not be cold or hot. I love having all the Thanksgiving food on Thanksgiving. I like to see all the leaves falling. Those are some of my favorite things about fall!

Thanksgiving is about the turkey and football right? Wrong! Thanksgiving started with the Mayflower and colonists wanting freedom from Britain. In 1621 the Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn with the people on the Mayflower. The Wampanoags harvest became a feast that is known now as the first Thanksgiving. It wasn't until 1863 that Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the national Thanksgiving Day!
Ramon Martinez 6th grade Holy Cross School
Fall has to be one of my favorite seasons because I love the weather, colors, clothes, and the sports. Plus you can take great artsy photos. One of my favorite memories from fall was when my dog, Lucy was galloping like a deer and playing in the leaves. Also, Halloween is coming up so you can get candy, a lot of candy. The one thing I absolutely love about fall is the clothes. You get to wear Uggs, leggings, sweaters, and hats. Another thing is that the colors are so pretty, yellows, reds, oranges, and brown. I downright enjoy decorating for fall and Halloween! My favorite sport to watch in the fall is volleyball and I also love to play it, too! The weather in the fall is just perfect, it’s not too hot or too cold.

I don’t know why some people want the TURKEY to be to be the national bird. I think the eagle is a great choice for our country. It represents our power and freedom. Changing it would be a big step. Plus,on Thanksgiving I love to eat turkey, and I wouldn’t want to eat our country’s bird. Plus eagles are known as powerful and turkeys are known as silly. I don’t think the turkey would be a good choice for our bird.
Drew Dickes 6th grade Holy Cross School
I like sports because you get to watch Nebraska beat Iowa in football. In fall I like to watch football, but I do not like playing it. My dad and I like to watch football together except when it comes to college football. My dad and I like different teams so we don't get along when it comes to college football. I like to play basketball because you get to see your friends and run around with them. I like basketball because you are inside and not outside in the cold. I play golf with my brother and Mom. Golf is my favorite sport because it is quiet and it is easy to focus. My family likes to play volleyball but I'm not into that kind of stuff.
Jake Venne 6th grade Holy Cross School
Fall is my absolute favorite season of the four seasons. In the fall the leaves start changing colors and they start falling which I find fascinating because the leaves are so beautiful. I love when leaves fall because I can rake my great grandmother’s yard and earn some extra money. Although school starts in the fall, it’s ok because I go to Heelan and the football games are fun! In fall I love the weather because it’s not too hot and it’s not too cold, it’s perfect outside. Another reason why I love fall is that college football starts! I LOVE THE IOWA HAWKEYES!!! I’m a big Hawkeye fan. Watching football is really fun and interesting to watch...even when I don’t even know half the rules. When we’re in the fall it’s time to start thinking about Halloween, what you’re going to be. Thanksgiving comes and all the delicious food and black friday shopping arrive. I know my parents and grandparents look forward to with all of the sales! Finally, we have my most absolute favorite holiday of all CHRISTMAS! I always get really excited for winter break! During fall I think about all of these holidays coming up, which makes me very excited! When fall starts I have a good excuse to ask my parents if I can start wearing sweatpants! Volleyball and dance start in August which I really enjoy doing. Fall is my favorite season for all of these reasons!

Fall is my favorite time of the year because it is not too cold or hot and my birthday is in fall.
Autumn a time for pumpkin pie and to play some football!
Life starts over again when it gets crisp in the fall.
Look at all the leaves and all the beautiful colors everywhere
Rahmah Sajid 6th grade Holy Cross
I like fall because it is cold outside and I like the cold. When the leaves fall from the trees we make a huge pile by the tree house and we jump off the tree house and land on the pile of leaves. I like Thanksgiving because of all the good food . My cousins come over and it is so fun. That's why fall is my favorite part of the year.
