*** Wish List ***

My mom said when she was a little girl she would hold her arms out to the sides and run into a big wind and wish she could fly.
My dad would climb high on the jungle bars and wish he could pilot an airplane to exciting places.

*** This is my wish list ***
  • Go to a place that has skate board ramps and play all day and not break my arm.
  • Sit in the front of the airplane with the pilot when I fly to visit.
  • Get to be the pitcher on my baseball team and not let the other team walk to base or hit any pitches I throw.
  • Be on Honor Roll without having to do my homework.
  • Make my good stuff float too high for little kids to reach when they come in my room.
  • Go to regular summer camp and Boy Scout camp in the same summer.
  • Find the stuff I do wrong and fix it before my parents find it.
  • Make the garbage take itself out.
  • Get my dad to teach me to drive before I am 16 years old.
