Even When No One is Watching

Even When No One is Watching

By Rachel A couple of weeks ago, I missed my AP English vocabulary test because I was absent. This test included 60 terms that had to be memorized. The twist was that the test would be a word search.

Who stayed up late to help you finish a science project? Who brought the homework assignment you forgot on the counter to school? Who taught you to pray? It was Mom.
