This is her story...
It was a sunny morning when Emily woke up. She saw her mum, brother, his girlfriend and Matilda standing over her with presents, a cake and wonderful surprises.
She got a call at around lunch time, it was Jasmine. She was ringing to tell Emily she was on the driveway and to come outside. Emily was running so fast outside that when she came out she saw not only Jasmine but Belle and Amy she almost tripped over her own feet with excitement. They had presents and cupcakes all set up for Emily. Emily was so surprised she decided that they should have a little party. They played games, told stories and were just enjoying their time together. Suddenly a huge storm approached the Cattle Station. They were soaked in rain water. But nothing was going to spoil Emily's mood on this special day. In fact it made it even more fun on a hot day.
When it was evening Belle, Jasmine and Amy all slept over at Emily's house.
The next day they were planning what they were going to do.
'Climb a tree?' said Belle.
'Play netball?' said Amy.
'How about we do something Emily wants to do' suggested Jasmine. All the girls agreed and Emily chose to climb a tree. As they were climbing Belle wanted to see how high she could climb. She climbed all the way to the top but lost her balance. She fell down, down, down. Emily reached her hand out and was able to catch Belle from her falling track. Knowing she had saved Belle from falling out of the tree and hurting herself Emily realised she had had the best birthday ever.
