The sunlight streaming through Tommy’s window woke him up. Today Tommy turned Eleven years old. The great thing about being born during the summer Tommy thought, was that you didn’t have to get up before you wanted to and you didn’t have to go to school.
Mother fixed Tommy’s favorite breakfast, which consisted of pancakes, bacon and eggs.
After breakfast Tommy would walk to half mile down the winding dirt road to Billy’s house. Billy is Tommy’s 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, Tommy’s 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.
