Tree House Triumph
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Brandon, Austin, and Nathan Bingham worked with their sisters, Lauren and Meghan, to build a tree house in their backyard. Brandon, the oldest, acted as supervisor. He had given each of his siblings a job so that they could all participate, even seven-year-old Nathan. It might not have been the prettiest tree house, but it was the sturdiest. It was only five feet off the ground, but their father had refused to allow them to use it until he gave it a thorough inspection. All five had cheered when Mr. Bingham pronounced it safe and ready for use!
 
2     The children conducted a meeting in the shade under their new play place. "Let's decide what to put into the tree house," Brandon said to his siblings.
 
3     "A refrigerator!" cried Austin, the human eating machine.
 
4     "A TV!" piped Meghan, the cartoon maniac.
 
5     Brandon and Lauren both laughed. Then Lauren said, "Those things require electricity! We don't have electrical outlets in our tree house."
 
6     "You'll have to think of something else," Brandon added.
 
7     Nathan had been thinking. He was anxious to be helpful and do his fair share. "What if we put in a storage space for our play stuff?"
 
8     The others liked that idea. If they had shelves or a cabinet, they could keep some of their outdoor toys in the tree house. Lauren volunteered to ask their parents if there were shelves, cabinets, or storage boxes that they could have. If not, she would try to persuade them to buy something for the tree house.
