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."
9 "I will keep trying," Tim said. "I know I can make it to the top."
