Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt
By Brenda B. Covert

1     The birds sang sweetly. Spring's young leaves rustled in the breeze. The sun warmed the grass and the sidewalks. The fragrance of newly awakened blossoms wafted through the air. It was a beautiful spring day made for outdoor fun!
2     The Crenshaw kids greeted the day with laughter and merriment. While their parents enjoyed a lazy Saturday morning reading the newspaper and drinking their coffee, the kids were jumping into their play clothes, diving into breakfast, and planning the morning's activities.
3     Gabrielle, age 12, loved to plan activities. Benjamin was 10 and more spontaneous. At 8, Michaela (called Micki) was eager to do whatever her older brother and sister were doing.
4     "My bike is calling my name," Ben announced as he tied his shoes, "and I'm going to answer it. I'm going to burn rubber today!"
5     "I hear my bike, too! It says, 'Micki, Micki, come and ride me!' " Michaela giggled.
6     "Listen," Gabrielle said. "I have a better idea. Why don't we do something that all of our friends can do with us?"
7     "Oh, no," Ben moaned. "Look out, Micki, Gabby's about to map out a schedule and tell us what to do all day!"
8     "Ha ha, very funny," Gabrielle retorted. "Why don't you wait and see what my idea is, Mr. Smarty Pants? You just might like it!"
9     "What is it?" Michaela asked.
