Backyard Bowling
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "Mom, we're bored," whined Logan. Behind him stood his younger brother and sister, Luke and Megan.
 
2     "How can you be bored already?" asked Mom. "The summer has only just begun."
 
3     "I don't know," said Logan. "All of our friends are away on vacation. There is no one to play with."
 
4     "What about playing on the swings in the backyard?" asked Mom. "Have you lost all of your toys?"
 
5     "The swings are boring," piped up Luke.
 
6     "So are the toys," added Megan.
 
7     "We want to do something with you," said Logan.
 
8     "Well, I do have one idea," said Mom. "We could do some backyard bowling for a little while."
 
9     "What is bowling?" asked Megan.
 
10     "Do you remember that place we went to for Logan's birthday party?" asked Mom. "You had to roll a ball and knock down pins at the other end of the lane."
