## Reading Test

 Hello! My name is Susan, I have got one sister and two brothers, and I am the oldest of them all. Last weekend, the weather was fine. It was sunny and warm. So, we decided to go on picnic. It was Jenny's idea, actually.             On Saturday, we bought plenty of food and juice, and very early the next morning, we took the bus to the countryside*. When we arrived there, Tony and Bob took their cameras and started taking photos while we were busy preparing the camp. I advised the kids not to go near the river.             At noon, Tony played the guitar, and the others sang and danced. After that, we ate all the food and had a nap. In the evening we returned home very happy and relaxed. *countryside = البادية
