A weekend with the Wheeler family
Mark and Sylvie Wheeler live in a big house in California. They have got four children. At the weekend they do a lot of things around the house. They garden quite a bit. They play basketball on the basketball court.
Their son Christopher is fourteen. At the weekends he goes out a lot with his friends, on Friday or Saturday nights. Sometimes he goes to the cinema or just to other people’s houses and watches videos.
There are just two seasons there: winter and summer. Because autumn, winter and spring are very much the same.
But summer is different. In summer on Saturday afternoon they crank up the barbecue. And that is their meal. They like it. They never miss it. In summer it gets very hot and sometimes they just want to be outside, not inside.
Summertime activities are usually involved around the children’s sports. Their youngest son plays Little League – that is baseball. There are a lot of little boys who take the game very seriously. They are all dressed up in their uniforms.
