Summer Treasure, Part 1
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "Mom, Indiana Jones says that X' never marks the spot!" exclaimed Jim. "You put an X' here on the map."
 
2     "Well, in this case it definitely does," Mom said with a smile.
 
3     "Okay, okay, so what is it we are supposed to do?" asked Jim.
 
4     "You said you didn't have anything to do since school was out. I have a suggestion. I made this map to help you find the treasure I have hidden. All you have to do is figure out the answers to the clues and follow the map. You and your sister can work together to find it."
 
5     "Aw, Mom, I don't want to have to drag her around with me. I was going to get Mark to help me," said Jim with a frown.
 
6     "Well, I don't think you should leave Sandy out of the fun; besides, she could be a big help," said Mom.
 
7     Jim, still frowning, said, "How can she help? She is just a kid."
 
8     Mom laughed out loud. "And what are you, mister smarty pants?"
 
9     "Mom, you know what I mean. She is just a little kid. She doesn't know anything. I don't want to play with her," Jim said as he stuck his tongue out at his sister, sitting in the chair across the table from him.
