Have you ever been skiing before? If you have great if not hopefully this book will convince you to step out of your house and ski down the mountain! Skiing has been around a long time. It all started in 1850 by farmers in Scandinavian, hunters and warriors. Skiing is a great sport, so follow me into the snowy peaks and down the hill.
Ski Scavenger hunt!
“Mom I am going out to Maria’s house!” I yelled.
“Okay remember your manners.” She told me. I yanked open the door and slammed it behind me. Little did my Mom know that I was a spy and so was Maria. Dr. Jerry R Willington told us we had to go on a secret mission down the street from Maria’s house. I ran quickly to Maria´s making sure I was't late. As I was walking I was remembering the lesson that I learned last time I was late. Boy did her face get as red as a ripe tomato. I banged at her door and she abruptly opened it.
“Come in quickly!” She motioned her hand telling me to follow her.
When we were settled in her room we through on night black suits and swiftly and sneakily left the house.
“Where are we going?” I whispered.
“We are going to a museum to grab famous skis.” Maria told me.
Ok why are we doing that I thought to myself. Aren't we good spies not bad? After what felt like 5 hours we arrived at a big brick building. We quietly sneaked in the building as a janitor walked out. We strolled down a velvet red carpet. The carpet led us to a glass case with a pair of skis neatly placed in it. Maria grabbed a tiny key out of her pants pocket and unlocked the case. She snatched the skis and started running out of the building. She ran into a tall man holding a flashlight.
“What are you doing?” The man grunted.
Maria hesitated. She bit her lip and her feet were shuffling. Her eyes looked like they were going to burst into tears like a pinyata bursts into candy.
“I um need skis for a ski party on Friday.” Maria confessed.
“Oh you could just go to a local sports store like, Dick’s and Sports Page. You could also go online and look on amazon or ebay. You can get ski boots at these places too”
“Sorry sir but we didn’t know.”
“It is ok!” He took the skis from us and we walked home.
“So this wasn’t really a mission from Jerry R Willington.”
“No sorry I just couldn’t do it without you!”
"Maria that was wrong what you did you should have told me!"
"Sorry will you forgive me?" Maria asked.
"Of course!" I yelped.
