"Oh Shoot! Not again!!" Today had been the third day in a row that Ella had woken up late. What was she going to do? there's no way she could be late again. Ella was home schooled so instead of going to school first thing in the morning she had to go to early morning tennis practice; and then rush home after 5 and a half hours of practice.
As Sylvie rushed down the stairs half dressed; she heard a familiar voice... Sylvie, where are you going; you haven't had your breakfast yet...? Said Sylvie's mom.
"Mom I don't have time... This is about to be my 3rd time in a row being late; and coach makes us run around every tennis court when we're late!" O "Oh come on; what's a little bit of running gonna hurt?" Said Sylvie's mom. "Seriously mom, you couldn't even finnish one lap around the block." "Ok whatever honey, but you know what they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so at least eat a little bit of something.'
