The MDA Carnival Package Arrives
By Phyllis Naegeli

1     Eli ran through the back door. "It's here, it's here," he said, waving a large envelope in the air.
2     "What's here?" asked his sister, Sarah, as she reached into the cabinet to grab a package of cookies.
3     "The carnival kit," said Eli as he sat down at the kitchen counter and started tearing the package apart.
4     Sarah poured herself a glass of milk and put some cookies on a plate. Then she walked over to the counter, placed her snack down, and sat in the chair next to Eli, watching him pull the contents out of the package. "Why do you need a carnival kit?"
5     "I'm going to have a Muscular Dystrophy Association Carnival," said Eli proudly. "It's going to raise lots of money for the MDA, just like Jerry Lewis."
6     "Well la-de-da," said Sarah snippily. "I doubt you'll raise millions of dollars!"
7     Eli glared at his sister. "Maybe not millions, but I'll bet I can raise thousands!"
8     Sarah swallowed a bite of her cookie and washed it down with a gulp of milk. "You have big dreams!" She shook her head. Then she grabbed another cookie and popped it into her mouth.
9     As Sarah continued to eat her snack, Mom came in the back door with an armload of groceries.
10     "Hi, Mom," said Eli. "Look what came today!"
11     "The carnival package!" said Mom, placing the bags of groceries on the counter. "That's great. Have you looked it over yet?"
12     "I just started," said Eli, picking up some of the pieces of paper to look them over.
13     "He thinks he's going to raise thousands of dollars," said Sarah sarcastically.
14     "There's nothing wrong with thinking ‘BIG'," said Eli, spreading his arms out.
