At Ann's house there was a backyard with lots of trees and a green lawn big enough for playing games or turning somersaults. In one corner of the yard was a tall slide and a sand pile. But Ann's favorite thing was the tire swing, which was hanging from a high branch in a eucalyptus tree.
Ann was four. Her older brother and sister were Glen and Janet. Ann's mom and dad called them "the big kids." Ann's other brother, Paul, was six. Mom and Dad called Ann and Paul "the little kids." The four kids had fun playing together. And on Sundays they went to the Christian Science Sunday School while Mom and Dad went to church.
One afternoon Mom asked big brother Glen to look after the little kids for about an hour until she got back home. She was going to take Janet to her flute lesson. The flute teacher lived nearby. When Mom and Janet left, Glen and Paul and Ann were playing together in the backyard.
