Simona B., Age 10
Tribe of Issachar 

Friends9 smHello fellows. My name is Simona, I am ten, and I am in the tribe of Issachar. Back to my story, although I haven’t started yet. I am about to tell you about the history of turtles! But special ones. Here we go.

Once upon a time there lived…a pond. On the walk to the dining hall for breakfast, lunch, and dinner you would see it. It is very mysterious, but according to my calculations, the turtles came from…Jimmy and Denny the turtles. They had lived in the pond forever, ten years. One day, Denny gave birth to 16 babies at one time! They were very happy with their lives. The youngest turtle (by one minute) made quick friends. The other 15 grew up to be racers. Then, the youngest turtle (his name is Monk) met a girl turtle and had 16 more babies! That’s why when you walk to breakfast, lunch and dinner, you see TURTLES! (Special ones.)
