Mindy's Surprise Party
By Phyllis Naegeli
1 "We need to hurry," said James. "Mom said she and Mindy would be home at four o'clock."
2 "I just need to put up this last frog," said Gina, stretching her arm to place the cardboard frog on the wall.
3 Standing in the family room doorway, Mindy's brother and sister admired their work.
4 James grinned. "A leap frog birthday party for a leap year birthday."
5 "I hope Mindy is surprised," said Gina. "She looked a little sad this morning."
6 "It must be hard to have a birthday once every four years," said James.
7 "Yeah, she's eight, but this is only her second birthday," said Gina. "I guess having a birthday on February 29th is a little strange. Oh, there's the doorbell."
8 "I hope that's Katie and Abby," said James. "They're bringing the music for musical chairs."
9 "I'll get the door," said Gina. "You go get the cake."
