Jake and Jackie Prepare to Fly
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "I've never flown on a plane before," Jake shared with Jackie as their mothers discussed an upcoming trip.
 
2     "Me either," Jackie said. "I wonder what it's like?"
 
3     Jake and Jackie's fathers were going on a business trip to San Diego, California, and had decided to take their families along. Their mothers had been excitedly planning for weeks, and everyone would be leaving on Friday. Today was Monday, and they would begin packing.
 
4     The moms called Jake and Jackie into the kitchen to explain some things.
 
5     "It's time for you two to begin packing for our trip," Jake's mom began.
 
6     "Yes, and there are several things you need to know," Jackie's mom continued as she reached into a white plastic shopping bag. She pulled out a number of small trial sized items.
 
7     "Since we are only going to be gone for three nights, we are going to try to pack all our things on carry-on luggage." Jackie's mom continued.
 
8     "What's that?" Jackie asked.
