No More Winter Blues Party
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 Sherry skipped into the kitchen and dropped her book bag on the floor, singing, "We're having a party! We're having a party!"
2 "A party?" her mom asked.
3 "Uh huh, we're having a beach party at school next week."
4 Puzzled, her mom raised her eyebrows. "A beach party? In February!"
5 "Yes! We get to bring in beach balls, summer hats, and shorts," said Sherry. "They are even going to bring in sand to cover part of the gym floor so we can pretend we're at the beach."
6 "Is there some special reason for this?" Mom asked, wiping her hands on a towel.
7 "Because February 20 is Hoodie Hoo Day," Sherry giggled. "At noon, the whole school is going to have a beach party, and we all get to yell 'Hoodie Hoo' to chase away the winter blues."
8 "Hoodie Hoo Day? Are you making this up?" Mom teased.
9 Sherry frowned. "No, really, Mom."
10 "Okay, I believe you. I've just never heard of Hoodie Hoo Day," said Mom. "I wonder who came up with such an idea? Can I help you get your stuff together?"
11 Sherry's smile returned. "Do you know where my summer stuff is?"
12 "It's packed away in the attic," said Mom. "Come on; let's go pull out what you need."
13 Sherry and her mom went to the attic and opened the boxes of summer things. They found shorts, a beach ball, a pail and shovel, and a big summer hat.
