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."
