The yellow school bus slowly came to its last stop. Henry, the bus driver, waved and declared, "Have fun during your break!" Happily, Susan and Sharon, identical twins, hopped, skipped and jumped off the bus. The girls could hardly contain their joy and happiness. The school was out for the Summer!
