This morning mommy helped Nick pick out clothes and made Nick breakfast to eat. Then we waited outside for the bus. The bus was late, and Nick was walking around our garden and back and forth on the sidewalk saying "schoolbus."
Finally the schoolbus came, and Nick got on and they drove away. Mommy also told Nick that he was not going to The Long Beach Middle School, he was going to spend the summer at The Long Beach High School.
In the afternoon, mommy kept the door open so she could hear the horn when the schoolbus came home. Nick walked off the bus and gave mommy a little hug. Mommy said "how was school? Did you have fun?" Of course Nick said "no." He does not like to talk about school.
Mommy asked Nick if he wanted to go play in his pool and Nick said "no."
Mommy asked Nick if he wanted to play in the sprinkler and Nick said "no."
Mommy asked Nick if he wanted to go in the car to play in a park and Nick said "no."
Mommy said, "what would you like to do?"
Nick asked for his computer, scissors, tape and paints. He looked for pictures of buildings and stores and restaurants on Google. Then cut them out, painted them and taped them to the wall. It looked just like a street in Long Beach!
