It was Saturday in the house and I wanted to do something for Mom. It was swim season and I still have time left. So, I went into the kitchen Stared for a couple of seconds. Then I looked around. My first instant that came to my mind was doing the dishes. So, I ran right to it I opened it up and it was clean dishes so I did the dishes it was almost time to leave. I had five minutes left. So I sat on the couch and watched TV. Mom went into the kitchen and I was excited. She went for the dishwasher she opened the dishwasher and said who did the dishes and I said me excitedly. I thought she would be happy because she always does it and not me.

We were at our house and I wanted to do something for my dad because he is special to me. He was outside raking up leaves from yesterday so it was like two minutes later and he came in and said can you put leaves in piles so I can suck them up and I said yes and I raked for 20 minutes. I felt good and dad had a big smile on his after we were done. I think he felt good on the inside because he had always done it himself.

It was Sunday at church and the service was done. The parents where picking up their kids and leaving when I saw a problem. A mom carrying her boy up the stairs and all of the sudden a blue stuffed monkey rolled down the stairs, and no one noticed. So, I decided to take action. I went down the stairs to pick up the stuffed monkey and the mother with the boy and her hands was already starting to walk out the door. So, I ran up the stairs as fast as I could and then I ran out the door hoping she didn’t left yet. She was already putting the boy and his car seat and ready to go. She hopped in the front seat. I ran faster and finally I got there and said oh you guys dropped a monkey. Oh my goodness she said I couldn’t have left without this. I bet you that she felt thankful that I brought her the stuffed monkey and I was happy to.

After the last snow storm our back porch was covered with a lot of snow and then it turned to ice. We have a dog that has to be let out every couple hours, her name is Aurora. My mom and siblings were not looking forward to taking the dog out because the deck was so snowy and slippery. So, I decided I should make it easier for them. I talked my brother into going outside with me to shovel off the deck. It was a lot of work and we were really tired and sore when we were done. But my mom was so happy and it really made it easier for everyone to take the dog outside. I was happy I could help.

My dad likes to run a lot of errands on the weekend, it’s his only free time. He always asks us kids if we want to go along with him. A couple weeks ago he asked me if I wanted to go to Home Depot with him. I thought about it for a few moments, I was pretty comfortable sitting on the couch watching a movie. But I decided I didn’t want my dad to go alone, I didn’t want him to be sad if I didn’t want to go. He was pretty happy when I said, “sure I will go.” We had a fun time and I know I made my dad’s day.

I have a 3 year old sister named Ivy. She is very attached to my mom and has a hard time whenever my mom has to leave the house. She gets very upset, she cries and is so sad. She doesn’t understand that she can’t always go with my mom. The other day when my mom was taking my older sister Avery to her volleyball practice Ivy started to get upset. I knew I needed to do something to help and distract her. I asked her to come downstairs with me, we found a game, some books and other toys to play with. My mom was able to leave without Ivy getting upset. It felt good being able to help both my sister and my mom. I will try to do this more often.

My mom every now and then will make no bake cookies and once we had a lot extra and I wanted to give some away. So, I thought about who to give it to. Then I thought of how early my bus driver gets up in the morning and then I thought how to give it to. My bus driver. I made sure it was okay with my mom and dad and they said it was a perfect idea so I put three of them in a bag.

I got all ready for school and grabbed my cookies and went to my bus stop and when I got on the bus, I gave the cookies to him and he said, “Thanks bro.” So I replied, “You’re welcome.” Then when I was getting off the bus, he said, “Thanks again for the cookies.” And I replied, “You’re welcome.” But then I didn’t think he would say it again but when I was getting on the to go home, he said again, “Thanks again for the cookies.” So I replied, “You’re welcome.” All of this made me feel so happy and the bus felt happy but anyways I was just so surprised he said it three times.

I noticed that somebody on my bus was lonely every day on the bus, so today I sat by him when he got on the bus. It was so much fun! I got to learn more about him. It was so much fun, I sat by him every time he got on the bus! It made me and him feel happy and glad I did that. And that’s why I sat by him every time he got on the bus.

Today, I made fruit dip for my grandpa and grandma. First, we had to run a few errands, but then we stopped by their house and looked at their workshop because they had recently moved in. So, I gave him the dip and checked their work shop and went home. They did say thank you but they asked about the Blueberries and hopefully they will pay it forward. I did this because they have been working hard.

Me, my granny and my cousin, Nell were at a hibachi restaurant. After we ate our food, it was time for dessert. There was a little boy sitting with us with his family. I said, “granny can I have ice cream?” My granny said yes so, we started looking. My granny heard the little boy ask his mom and dad if he could have some ice cream too so my granny asked if she could pay for the ice cream for my Blueberries assignment. So, I got out a Blueberry Card and gave it to them. After we left, I felt really good about what I did and when my granny offered to pay for the ice cream the little boy’s mom looked like she would cry tears of joy.

I was at home and wanted to cook or bake and we had some gluten-free cake mix. When I was thinking of baking it, I thought of my grandpa that just got out of the hospital. So, I baked the cake and decorated it. I got ready and after dinner, I gave it to him in front of my mom, stepdad, and little brother. I told him to pay it forward to someone else because I didn’t have a Blueberry Card with me. I felt really good after I saw the smile on my grandpa’s face that I didn’t see in a whale.

In December, we went to the Grand Blanc Township Police Station to give the officers cookies. We also went to the Grand Blanc City Police Station to give those officers cookies also. I chose to do this act because I wanted to tell them, “Thank you for your service.” Officer Swartz said he was glad that I gave the time to appreciate them. I felt really good because Officer Swartz was thanking me for giving my time. I got to get my picture taken with Officer Swartz. I think all of the other officers will be very happy too.

My dad came home with good news that night they liked the treat bags. The reason we did this was me and my mom thought that his girls just would like some support before their game. I felt happy when I was making the treat bags because we could have just bought candy from the store and kept it for ourselves and they ended up winning their game too. I knew they would be happy.
