Jay's Perfect Pumpkin
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     Jay could hardly wait. It was fall at last!
2     The trees were changing colors. The air was cooler. School had started.
3     Jay loved the fall. Jay loved pumpkins, too. Fall meant pumpkin time.
4     Pumpkins meant it was time for pumpkin pie. It meant jack-o'-lanterns. It meant Halloween.
5     Jay liked to plan his pumpkin faces. He made sad pumpkin faces. He made scary pumpkin faces, too.
6     He made faces for tall pumpkins. He made faces for short, fat pumpkins.
7     Jay did not know what pumpkin he would get. He wanted to be ready.
8     Then, one day, Dad said it was time. It was pumpkin day! Jay could hardly wait.
9     Mom packed a lunch for them. They had sandwiches, apples, and cookies. They had milk to drink.
