The Poinsettia Parade
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 "What time are we leaving?" Ann asked, jumping up and down with excitement.
2 "In about ten minutes," her mom answered. "You need to get a light jacket to wear. It's a bit cool today."
3 "Where are Dad and Ethan?" Ann asked, reaching into the closet to grab her jacket.
4 "They're out in the garage. Do you want to go tell them it's almost time to leave?" Mom replied, smiling at the excited little girl.
5 "Yes!" Ann exclaimed, running out the door to deliver her message. When she reached the garage, her dad and brother had just finished putting the lawn mower away.
6 "What are you doing?" Ann inquired, forgetting the reason for her visit.
7 "We were fixing the lawn mower," bragged Ethan. "It needed a new blade, and Dad let me help."
8 "Hmph," Ann grumbled, pouting at her older brother. "I helped Mom with breakfast this morning."
9 "We had cereal," Ethan snapped.
10 "Okay, enough," said Dad to the kids, reaching over to pick up his six-year-old daughter. "Why are you here?"
11 "Oh, yeah!" Ann remembered. "It's almost time to leave for the parade. Mom sent me to get you."
