Guess what kids! We are flying to California in a few weeks!!!
one day, my parents had a giant surprise for our family. My thoughts and my brother's thoughts were very different
We might crash!!
what am I going to do???
I've never flown on a plane before!
A few weeks passed. As it got closer and closer to the day we were leaving, I got more and more nervous. A lot of thoughts were going through my head.
I'm so nervous!
I dont know what to expect!!!!!
I dreaded the day it was time to go. I questioned myself if I should tell my parents how scared I was to go.
UHH, OKAY I'M COMING!!
Hey Shelby, we gotta go!
Mom and Dad, I am extremely nervous and scared to fly. We might crash. It is unsafe!
I was really embarrassed since I was so scared to fly on a plane, and my little brother wasn't. But I wanted to feel better, and I knew my parents could help. I decided to tell them on the way to the airport.
Shelby, it is not likely at all that we will crash. These pilots are highly trained. There is nothing to be scared of. I will sit next to you. Does that make you feel better?
As we walked through the airport, my dad explained to me that airplanes are perfectly safe.
Don't worry. Everything will be fine.
My dad sat next to me on the plane, and he made me feel so much better during the whole flight. After we got off of the plane, I was so proud of myself that I actually did it! I realized that airplanes are great, and to this day, plane flights don't bother me anymore!
