Frosty's Invitation for Help
winter day, we woke up to lots of snow in our small town. We hurried to
eat our breakfast, put on our winter clothes, and to get outside to build the
tallest and most magnificent snowman. We gathered our supplies and ran to
the middle of our neighborhood to meet all of our friends.
Our twelve excited friends gathered around to talk about how to make the tallest snowman the town has ever seen! John, Hanna, Andrew, Morgan, Leo and Teri started rolling a giant snowball for the bottom of the snowman. They rolled a ball that was taller than Hanna! Jess, LeAnn, Taylor and Chad rolled a medium size ball for the body. Their ball was as tall as Teri! "How can we put the two balls together?" asked Chad. Everyone thought about how to do that.
Leo and Brandon yelled, "We've got an idea! Let's gather around the medium sized snowball, everyone pick it up, and put it on top of the largest snowball. Everyone yelled "Yeah!" Morgan took the lead and said, " On the count of three, let's pick up the snowball; one...., two....., three!"
Suddenly there was a very loud groan from the friends. "Huuuuhhhhh!" The snowball was as heavy as a car. The snowball began to come off of the ground when little Leo accidentally fell underneath the snowball and between his friend's feet.
Leo yelled, "HELP ME!!" Everyone's arms were getting so tired from holding the very heavy snowball. The huge snowball began to wiggle on their arms. What was going to happen?
We yelled, "Leo, get out of our way!!" Leo crawled out from under our feet. He was totally covered with snow but, Leo helped us get the middle snowball on top of the bottom snowball. Finally, we could put our very tired arms down. Our arms felt like wet noodles!
