The Wreck of the "Miss Adventure" #7
LEGO Dacta Students from Davis Creek Elementary's 5th Grade
Barboursville, West Virginia
Brittany & Adam's Airplane

Journal:

Well, finally I built a plane to scout the island. I found many interesting things like weird animals, weird fish, and other interesting things. I picked up things like shells, birds, bananas, strawberries, and fish. Flying in the air is like listening to the birds sing. I wish I could stay up there all day, but if I did I couldn't wirte in my journal. I love to write and I also love to fly. I wrote H.E.L.P. on the wing so that if any jets or airplanes saw me they would rescue me. Well, I guess that I will have to just sit back and wait. It would be nice for a bigger plane to rescue me so I will fly with the S.O.S. sign on the top. Well, time to fly. Catch you later.
