Wendy's World - Changes Over Time
By Jane Runyon
  

1     Wendy could hardly wait to tell Tim and Tess what she had seen. She had just returned from visiting her cousins, Ellen and Kim. They lived in Virginia. Ellen and Kim had taken Wendy to Williamsburg. She had seen so many things there that she wanted to tell her friends about. As soon as Wendy had unpacked her clothes, she ran to Tim and Tess's house.
 
2     "Oh, Wendy," called Tess. "I'm so glad you're home."
 
3     "Yes," added Tim. "It hasn't been the same without you."
 
4     "Tim's only had me to tease all week," said Tess.
 
5     "Ha, ha," said Tim. "You just can't take a joke."
 
6     "I have so much to tell you," interrupted Wendy. "I had a lot of fun. I got to see a lot of interesting things."
 
7     "Like what?" asked Tim.
 
8     "Like what our lives would be like if we had been born more than two hundred years ago," answered Wendy.
 
9     "Life couldn't have been much different," said Tess. "I haven't seen any changes in my life."
 
10     "I was really surprised," said Wendy. "Some things have changed a lot. Some things are the same."
 
11     "What do you mean?" asked Tim. "How can things be different and still be the same?"
 
12     "For one thing," answered Wendy, "we all still live in houses. As a matter of fact, some of the houses today look very much like they did when our country was just colonies."
 
13     "My dad says our house is colonial," said Tess. "Does that have anything to do with the colonies?"
