Sleepy Small Raccoon

Students - Sometimes life brings on a strange event, and you know that you must write about it! Yesterday, our dog Cali found a baby raccoon that had stayed out too late (early morning for us) and she chased it up a telephone pole. Later in the afternoon, just as the raccoon began to come down...she chased it up a tree. At 10:00pm last night, that poor raccoon tried to come down again, but my husband happened to be outside and it crawled right back up the tree.
Since we never know when unusual events will happen, it's always good to keep paper and pencil handy. This is one of the wonderful things about having a writer's notebook. You can put all kinds of little life-details into it so that you never forget small moments such as this.
