I got braces last week, and I didn’t have time to post, so here is Joy’s journal!
We were staring our gym class this week. Miss Rachel the gym teacher stood near the beam, and told us to do a leap, cartwheel, and dismount. Maria instantly fell off. Savanna got on. But she leaped/fell off. Then it was my turn. I was last, and it was almost time to leave. I got on the beam. LeapedCartwheeledAnd dismounted. Savanna started hugging me, and the teacher said something in the background that didn’t click until later.
“You are amazing! I’ll have to see if I can get you into a more advanced class, where you have more time to do stuff.”In bed that night it hurt. A lot. I couldn’t handle all the pain, it hurt so bad. I thrashed around, trying to go to sleep.
“I never want to do gym class again!” I thought“Stop wiggling!” Hope yelled at me as she turned over.
“Fine!” I yelled back. I stopped wiggling, but it hurt. It would hurt to get out of bed and get some pain killer, but it hurt to be in bed. I wanted to scream. Finally I dragged myself out of bed.I went to get Mom who gave me pain killer. Then I slept next to her the rest of the night. I felt better. Until I remembered what Miss Rachel had said. “I’ll put you in a better class where you have more time to do stuff.” What was I going to do now?
