Look! Everything is on sale – stationery, clothes, books…
The new school year is starting. Here is another flier for a back-to-school sale.
Do you want to go shopping? I think you need some new stationery
There is a great place to buy cute notebooks and pens in the mall.
Let’s go. It’s open until nine.
Well, I’m going to yoga class at eight. I wan to get home before that.
That’s fine. We can shop for an hour.
Sarah, let’s play some video games.
Maybe later. I am working on my time management app.
I thought you finished it.
Yes, but I learned something new in summer school. Now I can improve it and make a new version
Sarah, Eric, what about going to the mall this afternoon? There is a back-to-school sale.
Oh, I want to go, but I have to finish my app by next week.
My friends are looking forward to using my new app.
I want to buy a birthday present for my mother.
How about a wallet?
Yeah. She needs a new one.
This style is very popular now. She can put her coins in the side pocket.
Hmm. It is a little big.
Well, this wallet folds in half.
I like it. Do you have this in a different color?
Yes. It also comes in navy, brown, black, and dark green.
Okay. I’ll take the navy one.
I watched Chris’s new movie last weekend. It was fantastic!
I watched it too. I loved the music. I downloaded it and listen to it every day.
I don’t remember the music. I enjoyed the action scenes. They were thrilling. Chris is a great actor.
Will he come to school today?
I don’t know. If he comes, I want to say, “Congratulations!”
Acting is hard. I tried it in summer school, and it was so difficult.
Tomorrow morning you will meet your director. The movie was a hit. He wants to talk about the next one.
Your meeting starts at 8:45. It will finish by 9:45. Then there is an interview for a film magazine. You’ll be free after 10:30.
Great. I don’t want to be absent from school.
I think you like school now.
Well, I like my friends. I want to see them when I have time.
Oh, Chris will be here soon.
Yay! I can talk to him about his movie.
That’s not a good idea because he doesn’t like talking about his career at school.
Hi! What are you talking about? Um…. Your movie. It was great.
Thanks. Guess what! There will be a sequel.
Really? That’s fantastic news.
Yeah. The director is really happy.
Can you tell us about the story? Who will star in it? Oh! Maybe it’s a secret?
Hurry up, Anna. I want to use the bathroom. I don’t want to be late for my first class.
I am styling my hair.
You always take too much time. Take your hair dryer to your bedroom.
Oh, all right. I have to catch the bus soon. Anna I don’t want to be late either.
I can drive you to school today.
Go and eat breakfast. I’ll get ready quickly.
Summer camp was great. Look at these pictures.
Did you and Miki have fun?
Of course. We usually swam in the lake in the afternoon. We sometimes went hiking. At night we always sat by the campfire. I liked Miki’s ghost stories.
By the way, I think I will cut my hair.
Miki has short hair.
But your hair is always long. I like it.
Do you really mean it?
Hi, Mr. Gehrig. I never see you and Babe before dinner.
True. I usually walk him later. But Jessica and I will go to church this evening. There is a special event today. A choir from Harlem will sing.
That sounds nice. I’m going to walk Tom in Red Oak Park. He is always happy there.
Babe likes to go there too. Now, he is old. He can never walk that far. Sometimes I take him there by car.
Guess what! There will be an apple festival next weekend.
Princeton. I know that you will want to go. You love apples, right?
I go with my parents every year. There are many food stalls. They sell apple pie, apple cider, and apple donuts.
What else is there?
Some people sell handmade crafts. There is music and entertainment too.
Don’t forget apple picking. You can visit my uncle’s orchard and pick apples there.
This is so much fun. I always go sweet potato digging in Japan, but this is my first time to pick apples off a tree.
Thanks! My uncle enjoyed showing you around.
What are we going to do next?
I’m starving. Everything smells so good.
Okay. Let’s visit the food stalls.
What do you recommend?
I usually buy apple pie over there. The apples come from my uncle’s orchard. I’m sure that you will like it.
I hope Chris can come soon.
He will. He came last year. He is looking forward to the apple cider.
Yeah. That’s his favorite.
Oh! Let’s look at the gift stalls.
These are beautiful quilts. I love the colors.
You know, Miki, Lewis’s aunt makes these quilts.
Oh no! I’m afraid that Chris can’t come today.
What does he say?
He says, “I have to stay in New York because I must talk to the director.”
