Hello future readers,
So on Friday at school, we couldn't go out to play on the playground. Miss LaSalle told us it was because we were getting a new slide and see-saw, and the workman had to put them together. Far out! So on Saturday after the cartoons were over, a bunch of us went to the playground. Jennifer and I played on the new see-saw. It was so much fun!
Sunny and Susan were having a ball on the slide! We loved the new equipment!
Danny and Jason just wanted to play on the old monkey bars.
We were all having so much fun, we didn't see the girl that came onto the playground and started bopping the tether ball around.
Sunny spotted her first and went over to talk to her. Jennifer and I were gonna play on the slide, but I came over to see who Sunny was talking to.
She told us her name was Shante' Crawford, she was 9-years-old, and her family just moved here from Michigan. Wow, what a pretty name. The other kids started coming over and we introduced them to Shante'.
Shante' told us that she'd be starting 4th grade in school on Monday, Outta site! I wonder who class she'll be in?
We did our best to help Shante' feel welcome, and we all took turns playing with her. Sunny played on the new see-saw with her.
Susan and I played a game of hopscotch with her, and she's even better than Susan!
Next, Jennifer and Shante' played on the slide.
And Danny and Jason played a little tether ball with her. She even beat Danny!
We all had a groovy time. I just love making new friends, I think Shante' is really gonna dig living here in Springfield. And wow, she gets to start school right before Halloween, just like Melody did last year. I wonder if she has a costume yet.? Maybe I'll offer to take her down to Woolworth to pick one out, if she doesn't have one. I can't wait til she meets the other kids at school on Monday. I'll bet they'll like her, too. And now even though she's the new kid, she'll have a bunch of friends already!
Until next time, future readers,
