Listen to the story that I will read.

I stay at my uncle’s farm every summer. I wake

up early every morning to gather ducks eggs. Before
the sun goes up, my cousin Celso and I drive the
goats to the grassy hill to graze. There is plenty of
grass to eat so the goats are full within an hour. By
this time Uncle Pastor is busy among his vegetable
plants. Celso and I help him pull the weeds or
cultivate the soil until lunch time which is around
twelve noon. After lunch, I lean against the trunk of a
huge acacia tree and take a nap for about half hour.
