Camping Trip Cancelled
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 John and Jeremy stared out the window as the rain pelted the glass. Their long faces showed their disappointment with the weather.
2 "Why did it have to rain this weekend?" asked John despondently.
3 "I don't know," Jeremy replied sadly. "I wish it was sunny!"
4 Mom crept up behind the two boys and grabbed at their sides, tickling them.
5 John and Jeremy jumped from their seats and started laughing.
6 "That's better," said Mom.
7 Shortly, the sad looks returned to the boys' faces.
8 "I know you're disappointed," Mom said, trying to console them. "We'll go camping another time."
9 "But school starts soon," said John. "It will be a long wait for another time to come."
10 Mom gave the boys a look of compassion. "Speaking of school, we have a few more things to get at the store. Why don't you get your raincoats on and come with me?"
11 John and Jeremy glanced at each other and shrugged their shoulders.
12 "It'll be better than just sitting here, I guess," said John.
13 "O.K., then let's go!" said Mom.
