There are two boys on the beach fighting. Their names are Tom and Dick. They are both 10 years old, but Dick is bigger than Tom. Dick knocked over Tom's sand castle, and that made Tom angry. That is why they are getting into a little scrap. The other boys on the beach look like they are cheering them on.
George and Harry are staying out of the fight. They will let them battle it out. George is only 6, so he wants to stay out of the way. Harry is 12 so he's just watching to see what happens.
Harry and George might throw a beachball at them to try to stop the fight. Then Tom and Dick would probably throw it back. Then the other boys would throw it back again. Then the beach ball would go in the water and get lost.
Once the beach ball was in the water all of the boys went swimming. They all got wet. They are all cooled off. They forgot all about the sand castle. Those boys are going to splash at each other.
They are playing ball in the water, too. When the sun goes down they've got to get out of the water. They will have to get dressed and go home.
When they get home they will have supper and go to bed. Mom and dad are pretty happy to have tem go to bed. When they are sleeping they can't get into trouble.
