What a Day!
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Sammy was restless. He was so excited. He just couldn't go to sleep. Tomorrow he would be six years old. It was going to be a great day! There would be so many things to do.
 
2     Everyone was going to the park. They would swim in the pool. They would play tag. They would climb trees. They would . . .
 
3     Slowly Sammy drifted off to sleep.
 
4     * * *
 
5     Sammy sat up in his bed. He looked out the window. It was sunny and warm. It was a beautiful summer day. It wasn't too warm and it wasn't too cold. It was just right for a birthday!
 
6     Sammy got out of bed. He put on his clothes and ran to the kitchen.
 
7     "Mom! Dad! Kelly! Dylan!" he shouted. "Let's go to the park right now!"
 
8     "Slow down," his father said. "We have to wait for the others to come."
 
9     "Well, I'm going outside for a while," Sammy said. "I think the sunshine will feel good."
