If the earth was going to blow up and I could ride a rocket to another planet to live on and we could bring only one thing then I would bring my pillow. I got my pillow when I was four years old and I got it from my aunt. They wouldn't let her on because she is scared of heights and we would be going up really fast and she would be really scared. The pillow will remind me of her. The pillow is camouflage and it will remind me of what the soldiers wore. It has four pockets on the back so I could hold things in them. It would help me sleep on the rocket for four years. To me my pillow is important.
In third grade, Jared wrote a series of paragraphs. This one is my favorite. Jared was 8 years old when he wrote this.

My dad is named Seth Lester Leary III, and I am Jared Lester Leary IV. I was named after him because I am the fourth Lester. I love it when my dad sings songs. They sound so nice. my dad makes really good dinners. he has no hair on his head except a little beard sometimes. He smells like soap because he takes showers a lot. He feels strong because he went to wrestling. I'm going there soon. I'm glad I'm named after him because I want to be like him.
