When my mom and dad said that we could adopt a
couple of kittens, I jumped at the chance to have some
soft, cuddly animals around the house. So off we went to
the Humane Society where there were a lot of animals up
The first thing I noticed was that
there was not a lot of room for the animals and not a
lot of supplies to care for them. Even though they
didn’t have much, the people who worked there cared
about the animals more than anything, and they did their
best for them. Still, it seemed they had just barely
enough food and medicine to keep the animals
When we started looking around, I
saw a lot of animals and fell in love with each of
them. But my family and I finally settled on adopting
two kittens we named Sox and Sierra. We went up to the
front desk to sign the papers for them, and that’s when
I noticed a box on the counter. The Humane Society was
hoping to get enough donations to buy more supplies for
the animals and also build a new building to help even
more abandoned animals.
We finished up and took
our new kittens home, where they were sure to get a lot of love.
Later that day, my mom and I went shopping, and as we were
walking through the parking lot at the store, I noticed
a green piece of paper three spaces away from our car.
It was kind of wet, but it looked like it could be a
dollar bill, so I walked over and picked it up. It
wasn’t a dollar bill—it was a twenty-dollar
When I got home, I dried it off and thought
about what to do with it. I considered spending it on a
toy and a lot of other things. Right then, Sox climbed
up into my lap, and I knew what I was going to do with
I asked my mom to take me back to the
Humane Society so that I could put the money in the
donation box. The lady at the counter smiled and thanked
me, and I felt really good about what I did.
the Humane Society does raise enough money to build a
new building, I will know that I helped many more
animals that will come to live there one day—hopefully,
only until someone comes along and lovingly adopts them
like we did with Sox and Sierra.

Martin had just
received his brand new driver's license. The
family troops out to the driveway, and climbs in the
car, where he is going to take them for a ride for the
first time. Dad immediately heads for the back seat,
directly behind the newly minted driver.
"I'll bet you're back there to get a
change of scenery after all those months of sitting in
the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive,"
says the beaming boy to his father.
"Nope," comes dad's reply, "I'm gonna sit
here and kick the back of your seat as you drive, just
like you've been doing to me all these
