Past You Said It!

Good Day

Thirteen-year-old Juli asked this question: "What is your favorite time of the day and why?"

These girls shared their thoughts:

My favorite time of day is when I first wake up in the morning. I have "snuggle time" with my mom and sister and then we go downstairs to eat breakfast.
–Lydia, age 8, New Hampshire

Every morning, I go out to feed my pony and she nuzzles up to me just like a dog. The smell of hay early in the morning is calming for me.
–Kate, age 13, Pennsylvania

My favorite time of day is when I walk into my classroom at school and see my friends. I like to talk to them about what happened the night before and about the day ahead.
–Emilia, age 12, Pennsylvania

I have a class at my school called Discovery, and it's my favorite thing to do during the day. We get to build robots, learn new words, write stories, and have lots of fun.
–Ellie, age 10, Texas

My favorite part of the day is lunchtime at school. I have four best friends, and since I have a class with only one of them, it's nice to see my other friends at lunch. It's the perfect chance for us to catch up.
–Macy, age 11, Maryland

Recess is definitely the best time of my day. I look forward to spending time outside and playing lots of games.
–Sophie, age 9, Massachusetts

I love afternoons at my house. I'm home-schooled, so afternoon is when I get free time to read, write, check my e-mail, call my friends, or practice basketball.
–Jenna, age 13, Arizona

The best moment of my day is when I come home from school to my sweet dog, Hudson. He always lifts my spirits if I've had a bad day.
–Annie, age 11, Arizona

My favorite time is 3:30 p.m. That's when my mom comes home and I can tell her all about my day.
–Beth Joy, age 10, Tennessee

Each day, I can't wait to come home from school and see my baby sister. Since I'm at school or practices most of the time, I don't get to see her as much as I'd like. Playing with her is so much fun.
–Allison, age 12, Kansas

My favorite time is around 5:00 p.m.—it's when I'm at my dance class. I dream about being a professional dancer someday, so each class is a step toward making that dream happen.
–Jenna, age 10, Kentucky

Each night after I finish my homework, I spend time with my pet parrot. She's so cute, and I love it when she sits on my shoulder.
–Jo, age 12, Indiana

My favorite part of the day is when the sun sets. My room has a big window, and I like to watch all the beautiful colors flow into the room. It looks so awesome!
–Hannah, age 11, Colorado

The best part of my day is when my whole family comes together and has dinner. I get to be with my family and hear about the special things that happened in their days.
–Finley, age 10, South Carolina

My favorite time is just after it gets dark, because I love to look up at the stars. When I gaze at a starry sky, I feel as if I'm on a different, magical planet.
–Madison, age 12, New York

Bedtime is my favorite part of the day. I feel so relaxed when I lie down on my bed with my magazines. It's also a great time to think about the events of my day. Oh, and I love going to sleep, too!
–An American Girl fan, age 10, Florida
