Well, we will start now.  Come in and see my little puppies.  Here they are, and here is Fido too.  Do you think they are pretty?

Yes, I do.  See them play with each other.  They seem to be full of fun. 
Is this your kite, Roy?

Yes, I have two kites.  See what a strong string this one has.

Do you like to fly kites?

Yes, and pretty soon I will try my new one.  It will fly very high.

Come, boys, what shall we do?  Let us play hide and seek.

O yes! that will be fun for all of us.  Who will shut his eyes?  Ned, will you?

Yes, I will shut my eyes while you all go and hide.

Well, Ned, you stand by that tree.

Then Ned shut his eyes and the boys ran off to hide.  Pretty soon Ned said, “Boys, are you all hid?  Yes?  Well, here I go.  One, two, three, look out for me.”

You are in that box.

I spy you, Roy.  You are under the hay.

I can not find Frank.

O there he is!  I spy you, Frank.

Come out of that barn.  I see your black cap.

Fred, you must shut your eyes now, and stand by the tree while we hide.

I will, boys.  You go and hide.

Yes, sister, I must give her a bath.  Here is the bath tub with some nice warm water.

But, Ned, kitty will get sick if you put her into the water.  She will take cold.


No, I will wrap her well in the big shawl, and then she can not take cold.
