"Get up sleepy head," I am waken with a slight shake. I look up into forget-me-not blue eyes. "Mom!" I yell. I jump up and hug my mother around her neck. "Your back! Your back from Canada!" I shriek. My mom went to Canada a year ago for business. "I sure am. And remember your promise?" My mom says with a sparkle in her eye. I smile wide. "How could I forget?" I say. "Get dressed!" My mom says and leaves. My mom is also horse crazy. And, I made her a promise to take her to the stables as soon as she gets back. I get into my riding clothes, knowing that my mother would do the same. Then I dash out the door and down the stairs. An aroma of pancakes hits me as I enter the kitchen. I throw my arms around my dad's shoulders. "Mom is back!" I say. "I know!" He says. We both giggle. "What's the joke about?" My mom says as she enters the kitchen. Her hair is identical to mine. It's braided down her back. "Nothing!" My dad says and winks at me. I giggle again. "Let's eat!" My mom says. "Then we hit the road. We can walk to the stables," I say excitedly.
