STEP 1: LISTEN TO THE AUDIO
STEP 2: STUDY VOCABULARY
Last weekend was so busy. My brother, Joe, graduated from college. The graduation ceremony was on Sunday afternoon but we celebrated with our whole family on Saturday night. During the day on Saturday, we got ready for the party. My mom spent the morning cleaning the house. While my dad was picking up the food, I helped my brother set up tables and chairs in the yard. We scheduled the party for 6 o'clock but my grandparents came over early. I entertained them while Joe was getting ready. During the party, I helped my mom with the food while Joe was sharing stories about college. On Sunday, our family went to the ceremony. My father took many pictures while Joe was accepting his diploma. It was inspiring to see all of the people receive their degrees. It's a big accomplishment. I'm excited to get mine one day. But I have a long way to go.
