Being in the middle is hard
I hate getting beat up by my big brother
And annoyed by my little brother
And always messed with
Sometimes my little brother
Messes up my room
My big brother tears up my posters
So I have to go to the store and buy another one.
I don’t like being in the middle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When my mom goes out
My little and big brothers toture me.
I don’t like being in the middle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am Foggylogg with a long tail.
I see big birds with purple dots.
I fear lava with jello in it.
I hope one day I can be a fly eater
I am Foggylogg

I am Biggligg Fogglogg’s sister
I think I should fly with birds with purple dots
I cry when Fogglogg eats bugs
I touch anthing nastey
I am Biggligg, Fogglogg’s sister

I am Coggfogg, Fogglogg’s brother
I try to talk to them
I pretend to be a monster
I say to them everyday I love you
I am Coggfogg, Fogglogg’s Biggligg’s brother

I remember when I went to the circus it was when I was six years old. The circus was great I saw all kinds of animals and acts. My favorite of the circus was when I saw the elephant because I love the elephant and I love the part when I saw the woman on the rope she spin around on the rope her hair was flying in the air she was spinning fast and she did not even fall of the rope. I saw my favorite actor I ask her can I get her autograph she said yes. I win lots of games at the circus. I bought some cotton candy it was very good. I saw a clown and I saw lots of mime. I really liked the mime too. I was watching the mime about for an hour I like the part when the mime was walking down then stars I was really interested in the mime I took the mimes picture I ask the mime can he teach me how to walk down the stairs but he really was not walking down
