My brother Ammon’s 5th grade English assignment:
I was born a baby. I grew to be a toddler, then a regular child, and finally, an adult. My life sounds pretty exciting, doesn’t it!
As a baby, I had no idea what was happening in life, I was just eating, sleeping and barfing. I have no memory of my infancy, but my parents tell me I was born in Bend, Oregon. I was born the youngest of six kids. I am the youngest of my whole family, including my cousins.
When I grew to be a toddler, I tried out for kinder garden, and the teacher said I should probably skip it and go to first grade, but I decided not to. I played four-year-old basketball and was named M.V.P.(It was probably because you didn’t have to dribble, and I could dunk it on the little baby hoop.)
During my childhood, I was always the handsomest, smartest, and most athletic kid around. It was during this time, I was being the best at two-hand-touch football. As I was playing the position of quarterback (at recess), I was getting ready to throw a touchdown pass when the ball slipped out of my hand. It flew and resulted in an interception. I was shocked and disappointed with my failure, so I was busting my brains out to intercept it back. Finally, when I saw the chance I dove towards the ball, with my tongue sticking out with concentration I grabbed the ball as I was parallel to the ground! I fell and landed on someone’s knee, causing me to bite half way through my tongue. With blood gashing out of my mouth, I dropped the ball. It was an epic failure!
In my teenager stage, I broke four different state records in track. I was thinking about going to Brigham Young University, when I broke my leg. The doctor said I completely cracked it in half and I would never be able to participate in track and field again. I decided to pusue a career in music instead of athletics. I began to write songs and I really enjoyed it.
I graduated college as a music major, with my wife, Sarah, and I lived a happy, peaceful life.
As you can see, my life is pretty exiting! I was a baby, child, and adult!
