The New Boy

We got a new kid in class today. His name is Troy.


It must be hard to be the new kid. I say hi to Troy and ask him what he likes to do for fun.


He says he likes to race toy cars. When it’s a nice day, he likes to ride his bike.


After math, Troy asks where to find the bathroom, and I show him the way.


At lunch, Troy gets his tray, and I make room for him to sit next to me.


Later, we take turns on the swings.


By the end of the day, I have a new pal!
