I am feeling very excited tonight. I am going on a picnic tomorrow with my classmates. Some of our teachers will also accompany us. We have been planning for this trip ever since our principal gave us permission a month ago. We are going to Nehru Park. It has a large ground where children can run around and play freely. I have packed some food items including potato chips and chocolates. My mother has made a dozen sandwiches and a cake. My friends will alsobe bringing some food, and we shall all share and eat. I am also carrying my cricket bat with me. We plan to play a match.I feel I just cannot go to sleep tonight. I keep imagining all the fun that we are going to have tomorrow. But mother came into the room just now and warned me that if I do not go to sleep now, I might fall asleep at the picnic! As if that is ever going to happen! But maybe she’s right. So, good night!
