Up and Down, Up and Down

By Kathleen W. Redman
1     Tim stood at the very top of the mountain. He had been climbing for two days. It was a long hike. He was very proud of himself. No one else his age had climbed this mountain.
 
2     The first day Tim had walked up and down, up and down. Each time he walked up, he went a little higher.
 
3     In the morning he had seen other climbers. They were coming down the mountain. They shook their heads at him.
 
4     "The mountain is too high," they said. "You will never make it to the top."
 
5     Tim just smiled and waved at them. He would not quit. He knew he could make it to the top.
 
6     Tim stopped by a stream to have his lunch. He had a big hunk of bread. He had some cheese. He drank some water from the stream. It was a very good lunch.
 
7     In the afternoon he had seen a few more climbers. They were coming down the mountain, too. They looked very tired. They shook their heads at him.
 
8     "The mountain is too high," they said. "You will never make it to the top."
