Alyssa~ #friendship,#tweens,#tweengirls

Alyssa was excited about starting 6th grade in her new school.Her family had moved from California to New Jersey during the summer.She made friends with two girls (Erin and Tiffany) in her new neighborhood.Alyssa was invited to Erin's birthday party and the three girls went swimming together at park. On the first day of school,Alyssa woke up early. It was raining pretty hard.Her mother had just left for work and Alyssa was to walk to the bus stop with her new friends.She was holding her umbrella,backpack,and purse.Somehow she slipped on the wet pavement and fell into a mud puddle.Her purse was wet and her shoes and pants were soaked with the muddy water. Alyssa was upset and really embarrassed.After picking up her things,she stepped onto the school bus.She look down the aisle of the school bus and saw that Erin and Tiffany were laughing and pointing to Alyssa's soaked shoes.Alyssa could not believe it! This was not a good morning for Alyssa... how could the first day of school go so wrong?!When the school bus arrived at school,Alyssa went to the bathroom to clean up as best as she could.The physical ed.teacher even gave her some clean socks. She wanted to ask her new friends why they laughed at her.Did they have any manners? Should Alyssa keep silent and remain friends with the girls or ask them about the way they treated her that morning? Sweet thoughts, Marie
