turned seven on April 2nd. For a birthday present, he got a new bicycle
-- a 16 speed bike so that he could go out on the trails with his
mom, dad, and older sisters, Karen and Martha. But his best present
was a room of his very own. His parents had just bought a new house
in the same neighborhood, and the new house had more rooms. Frankie's
new room had windows looking out on the backyard. His mom told him
they faced east.
first day in the new house was fun. All the furniture from the old
house had to be put into new places. It was like putting
together a puzzle. For their first meal in the new house, they sent
out for pizza. Everybody was laughing and having a great time.
Finally it was bedtime for Frankie. His mom and dad went upstairs
with him to his room to tuck him in. Frankie
had positioned his bed so he could look across
his room and out his window while lying in bed. After Frankie
got into his p.j.'s, crawled into bed, and said goodnights all around,
his parents turned out the lights.
