Sarah Walked and Walked

Sarah hopped and skipped. She was ready to hike around Silver Lake with her family. Her brother, Josh, ran ahead.

Soon the sun began to feel hot on Sarah’s arms. Her legs began to feel tired.

“Don’t worry,” Mom said. “We’re almost back to our car.”

Then Sarah saw a big orange rope blocking the path. “The bridge is broken,” Dad said. “We’ll have to walk back around the lake.”

“But I’m so tired!” Sarah said. Josh sat down in the dirt and frowned.

“Do you remember the story of the pioneers?” Mom asked.

Sarah nodded. She liked the pioneers.

“They had to walk a very long way,” Mom said. “Sometimes it was really hot, and sometimes it was really cold. But they kept walking. When they got to their new home, they built houses and temples.”

Sarah was glad the pioneers kept walking. She would keep walking too. She held her hand out to Josh. “Come on,” she said. “We have some more walking to do.”
