The sunlight streaming through Tommyís window woke him up. Today Tommy turned Eleven years old. The great thing about being born during the summer Tommy thought, was that you didnít have to get up before you wanted to and you didnít have to go to school.
Mother fixed Tommyís favorite breakfast, which consisted of pancakes, bacon and eggs.
After breakfast Tommy would walk to half mile down the winding dirt road to Billyís house. Billy is Tommyís best friend and has been since kindergarten. Tommy and Billy have had their share of adventures exploring the woods that surround their houses.
When evening came rolling around, Tommyís relatives all came over to celebrate. There was Aunt Martha and Uncle Jim, his cousins Tony, Elizabeth and Jake, and Aunt Clara. Uncle Steve had sent his gift because he could not attend. He was away on business.
They played games and had cake and ice cream after supper. Everyone had a good time as always and Tommy enjoyed himself very much.
