In " The dot" I learned that you don't have to be amazing at something to be good at it. There will be other people that are better at something than you are, but that doesn't mean you can't do it. In the story, she turned a simple dot into something really cool. You can do anything if you put your mind to it, and never give up.

An Unforgettable School Day
“The bus is here, everybody! Let’s go!” shouted Mr. Walters, my sixth grade teacher. We hurriedly walked to the bus. Makayla and I would sit by each other, we’re best friends. The sixth grade usually goes to the Omaha Zoo but, since Mr. Dwizgo was retiring this year, we were going to his choice. Makayla and I were pretty upset because we really wanted to go to the zoo. This year we were going to the Hastings Museum. I had never been there before, but it didn't really seem fun to me.
When we first got there, we were supposed to go to our group leaders. My group had almost all my friends in it, so that made me a little more excited about this trip. Our group leader was Jeanne Breiner. We took a quick class picture and then headed inside. It was full of all of many unique colors and so many different things. But this was only the start of the trip. First thing my group did, was go into a star area. There, we watched what the sky would look like tonight. We pointed out the constellations too. It was so beautiful and getting better by the second. Next, we went to the 3-D movie theater, where I learned about junk floating around in outer space.
Next, it was time for lunch. When we were at the table trash was blowing like crazy. Mine trash drifted away. Mr. Walters told us to pick up trash or stay in the bus for the rest of the trip. I got up quickly so I wouldn’t have to. Jeanne got a little tired of us calling her “Mrs. Briener.” She hates that. She would chase you all over the place until you promised to never say that again. Then, Jeanne told us that it was time to go back into the museum.
We toured the rest of the museum. We looked at exciting animals and a lady told us about Nebraska history. This was getting very interesting. Now was the coolest part of all; the Kool-Aid part of the museum. We got to see how Kool-Aid started. We even got to see old commercials for Kool-Aid. Mr. Walter’s caught us running around so we were yelled at a little and we stopped. “It’s time to go everyone! Get on the bus!” Mr. Walters said one last time.
We all gathered into the bus. I couldn't believe I thought that this trip wasn’t going to be fun. It was extremely fun! I learned so much about Nebraska and tons of science. Also, I learned to never call Jeanne, Mrs. Breiner, never run in a museum, and most of all, never doubt anything before you even know what’s going to happen.
