It was a rainy autumn day when I, together with one friend was playing out. All at once we have heard a noise. -Cippp-Cipp-Cip!!! At the beginning, the noise combined with the rain dropping in the slop, we thought that was a lilac. But, when we had listening more clearly, it was evident that it was a sparrow. We followed the noise and found out that the poor sparrow had a wing and a foot broken. We have forth come, but it doesn’t have where scampered, so I took the bird in my hand. After we studied it in details, I decided to take it with me. After one month of attendance, the bird can fly in my bedroom.

It was a very long, but beautiful trip . There, along with our family friends we headed for a villa in the mountains. It was very beautiful. The villa was white and orange and had four rooms, a kitchen, three hallways and two bathrooms and a nice terrace. The villa was guarded by a dog named Ursu. The villa had a big courtyard, it was full of flowers and surrounded by mountains, we went and played in those beautiful places with Ursu, that wonderful dog. He was black with a little bit of white.   It was an unforgettable day. It was a wonderful summer month! Tirlungeanu Bianca-Andreea, School “Dan Barbilian”, Constantza, Romania

A moment of happiness rejoices you. I am happy at school because I see my colleagues again and I play with them. I made my granny happy when I offered her flowers on her birthday. The happiest day of my life was the day I had my 10th anniversary. Although it was winter, in the Christmas’ Eve it didn’t snow at all. It seemed that we were still in the autumn. Since the winter had started I have praised to the heaven to give us a lot of snow as a gift for my birthday. My dream had ended in smoke. But, the next morning, on the 1st of February, I woke up and went to the window and, surprisingly, I saw that everything was covered in white. I was extremely happy. Even if they found difficult to arrive all the guests came to the party. In my opinion, that was the happiest anniversary I have ever had.

On my desk in my bedroom it is waiting, my computer that I desire very much. The flowers and the candies near it, he didn’t make me glad like that time. I thanked my parents for the gift I received and I want that all kids were very happy like me.                                                                           Marinescu Bianca-Elena, School “Dan Barbilian”, Constantza, Romania

A moment of laughing rejoices you. I am happy at school because I see my colleagues again and I play with them. I made my granny happy when I offered her flowers on her birthday. I was happy when I climb the school stairs and when I made my friends, because until the beginning of the school I was only with my parents, and at school I make many friends. And now when I think that it is the last year with some of them and I’ m very sad because they are my brothers and sisters but a think that next year we’ll abandon our school mistress. We shall have teachers. But we stay four years with our teachers and we amuse and we learn many things and learn to love. Stancu Sorina, School “Dan Barbilian”, Constantza, Romania

When I'm at school the best part is the middle of the day. This is when Ihave recess then lunch. Recess is the best part because I get to see my friends that are in the other class. We play things like freeze tag, four square or just hang out and talk. At lunch I sit with my best friendAuburn. She is in the other class and we don't see each other much. We are really good friends.When I'm at home I always do my homework "first." After I'm done I play. The best is playing Dance, Dance Revolution Extreme 2(DDRE2). It's a dance game you play on Playstation 2. I play it with my sister (I always win). She is only seven but she is really good at it and knows what she is doing (not all the time). I also like to play different games with my mom and dad like Connect Four, Guess Where, and Silly Faces. Taking in wood for my Dad is fun to because I get drive the tractor. There are so many things that make me happy. These are just a few things I really like. What makes you happy?Michelle, Franklin Township School, Quakertown, New Jersey, USA

I think happiness can mean thrills and excitement like being on a rollercoaster. I also think it can mean to be proud such as when you get an A+ on a test.At school I feel happy some one compliments me, like the time my friends did when I came third place for the turkey trot. I feel good at home when my mom reads to me at night.I make others feel happy when I compliment them, like the time my friend Zach got an A+ on a quiz. I also make others happy when I don't exclude them from games. Once nobody would let my friend Chase play tag. So I stopped and played a different game with Chase. Then we were both happy.Hugh, Franklin Township School

Quakertown, New Jersey, USA


Slide39 l.jpg

I think happiness is having fun. Happiness is a feeling of enjoyment at a particular time.

All of these are what Ithink happiness is.Hailey, Franklin Township School

You can make a friend happy by helping them out, cheering them up when there down, bringing them to their favorite place, doing something for them, or giving them something.  I know that when I get bad grades I don't feel that well so I make friends feel better.  You can lend people things that they need. I think that when you make somebody happy it should makeyou happy too.Emily, Franklin Township School
