James Goes To The Fair
“I don’t know. I have so many chores to do. I just don’t know if I’ll finish them all in time enough for the fair.
“But James, you’re not old enough to assist with all these chores.”
"We need to pick up the toys, make up the beds, fold the cloths, put them away, wash the dishes, take out the trash, dust, vacuum, and sweep the floors."
James studies the long list.
“I can pick up the toys, make up my bed, fold cloths, take out the trash, and dust.”
James starts by doing the easy tasks first. He begins by making up his bed. Then, he takes out the trash.
In the kitchen, Mother loads the dishwasher and puts on some music.
“That’s what I like, teamwork. We make a great team,” Mother declares with delight.
As James stands in the kitchen, he smiles proudly at his mother. "Teamwork is certainly essential," James declares.
Next, James dusts the furniture. Then James folds his clothes with the help of his mother. James wondered why he hadn't discovered sooner that spending time with his mother could be so much fun. Later, James and his mother stand in front of the list. They line off completed chores posted on the refrigerator door to discover they're all completed.
“We’re finally finished and now we’ll be able to go to the fair,” Mother stated with delight.
“Hurray,” we’re going to the fair.
Bright and early the next day, James woke up and put on his favorite summer cloths. He puts on his cool orange t-shirt, jean shorts, and snickers.
Later, they arrive at the fair. There were so many people and things to do. James decides to ride on the marry-go-round. Then James rides the bumper cars. James takes a break at the food booth. Hot dogs and lemonade taste so much better at the fair.
After a while, James and his mother rest on a blanket under the shade of a maple tree.
“I love having you as my teammate. Its been so much fun,” James stated.
"I've enjoyed my time with you son. You are my best companion."
