Joseph is laying in the grass looking up at the night sky. His family decided to take a walk through the woods.To see, what he has been working on all week with his best friend. They came into the house a couple days ago, looking for supplies to used. They scrambled back and forth carting supplies from the shed. It was the supplies that was leftover last week from his Dad. He built a Garden box for his mom to plant her flowers in and he asked his Mom, “Where is Dad ? He asked? She told him that he was out back in the yard racking the grass, she replied.”
His Dad was racking up a pile of sticks and twigs when he walked around the corner of the house and his Dad just finished racking when he Enter. “Dad what are you doing?, he asked! I just finished racking up the leaves! He replied to him!”
“ Oh, I was wondering if you had any supplies, leftover from the garden boxes you built last week, he asked? He replied to him, just look in the shed there should be some left.”
So, he walked over to the shed to grab the supplies and walked to the woods to where his friend was waiting for him.
His friend was sitting along the path to where the big fir trees was and he was throwing rocks in the brook when he arrived with the supplies. He said, hello to his friend and dugout the boards to hang on the rope. That he and his friend wrapped around the toughest part of the tree limb and knotted it till it was tight and then hung the boards on the end of the knots with some nails. After they was done they tested it out. “I think this is the best swing ever his friend replied to him! Just in time for the meteor shower tonight, he replied to Joseph.
“Do you think my family will like it!, he asked ? Yes I think they will like it very much his friend replied to him.”
After the boys had a few turns swinging on the swing and Joseph look down at his watch and saw that it was time to go! His Mom told him to not to be too long that dinner will be serve soon. So he waved goodbye to his friend and walked through the woods to his home. The walking trail wasn’t to far from the house and it follow along the path to his Grammas house too. So he knew he wasn’t allowed to leave the path. So he walked back home to see his family. They was just about to put dinner on the table when he walked through the door.” Hey! Son, Did you find everything you needed for your project he asked? Yes! He told his Dad and went to washed up for dinner. His Dad was pouring the milk in his glass when he walked into the kitchen and his Mom was just finishing up the salad. “Hey Joseph! Can you take the salad to the table?,his Mom asked?”
He grab the salad and help his Dad finish setting the table and then they sat down and ate their dinner. After they was done they clean off the table and put the leftovers away in the fridge and went outside to watch the sunset. He told he parents about Earth day and clean up the garbage that was hanging around in the ditches and the lawn and he wanted to do something nice for his planet and picked up the garbage. His parents was very glad that he did that and asked him about having a sleepover in the yard. They could pitched the tent up and build a fire in the fire pit to roast marshmallows on later. You can asked a friend over and we will dig out the sleeping bags too.
The sun began setting in behind the hills, not to far away from their neighbourhood in Nateville. His family and friends are getting ready to watch the meteor shower tonight and it is going to be fun to watch from their yard and he invited his friend over to. He couldn’t wait for his friend to come over for a sleepover to watch the shower tonight yams show his family the swing the built.
His family got dress and got ready to go outside to watch the shower and decided to take a walked through the woods. Joseph and his friend could not wait for them to come, so he could show them what they made. The wind was blowing across the trees as the limbs danced in the wind and the swing was swaying back and forth when the boys arrived.
Of course they was there before his family arrived and he fixed up the finished touches on the swing and waited for his family to arrived and as he lay in the grass waiting for them to come, he looked up at the night sky and saw how the stars twinkle brightly as he waited.
Just than he heard a rustle in he woods and looked to see what it was. It was a tan colour animal, with four legs and had a sharp bark when he saw Him. It was his Grandmother’s dog Toby! He was trotting beside his mother and went to say hello! To him. Out around the corner he saw his family walking towards him and the swing he built was swinging in the wind, when they saw him laying in the grass. He arose to greet them and show them the swing he built. “Wow! What a wonderful swing to swing on his Gramma replied!” “Just in time for the Meteor Shower replied his family!”
As he laid the blanket down on the ground for his family they watch the Meteor shower and the stars glowing in the sky. What a nice night to watch the stars, his Gramma replied. After the Meteor Shower was done and than they look at the stars and watch how they twinkle.
