Hi my name is Louise Smith,and I am 9 years old, and my family and I are poor. We live in Miami, Florida and we have been living there since i was born.I was born in 2001 so we have been living there for quite a while.Neither of my parents have a job so one day as i was riding up and down the street in my neighborhood I noticed something.I noticed that my parents couldn't affored to pay for my school fees or anything to do with my life.So I was thinking.I thought for a while and said to myself "When I get in college, how are my parents and I gonna pay for books and all that?"I was kinda getting tired of riding my bike, so I went back home and asked my mom about what i was thinking.As she told me she said "Your dad and I both are looking for a job sweetie and we are both looking for jobs that are cheap but we both get payed alot."
It was 2 hours later and it was bedtime for me.My mom tucked me in and gave me a big goodnight hug and some goodnight sugars (kisses).As she was walking out of my bedroom she said "I love you baby" "I love you too mommy"I said.
My mom went back into the living room and sat back on the couch with my daddy.I am not too sure but I think I heard my mom telling my dad about what I told her today.But of course he is my dad and thats fine if she tells him. I heard my mom say "Louise was talking to me today about some things and I just feel like I need to share this with you honey." she said.She told him what I told her and he replied back saying "She is just worried that we are gonna be poor the rest of our life."he said."I am working on getting us a job together so we can work at the same place"dad said.
2 days later,Mom and dad were explaining what was happenening.It seemed like a really good plan to me.Finally mom and dad told me that they both got a job together!! "YAY!!!!"I shouted."YAY!!!"
It was Monday morning the last day of school and my mom had to come in a pay the fees for next year.She came in and explained to my teacher what had happened.It seemed like my teacher totally understood what was going on.We had our last day of school party that day and my mom took off and stayed to celebrate.My teacher gave each student a goody bag before we left.My mom made me get a picture with my teacher.As I told Mrs.Sumner "I am gonna miss you alot during the summer and in the next school year!!" "I know i am gonna miss you too,you are one of the smartest,prettiest,and helpful student I have ever had in my class out of the 23 years i have tought" "Aww thanks!!"I said to Mrs Sumner.
And that was how i spend my School year.
