Maria's Plans Maria stared thoughtfully at the tree fort.It was the first thing her grandpa had built for her.She had been little — it was before her younger brothers had been born.
    Of all her brothers,Maria felt that she was most like her grandpa.Grandpa had been a carpenter.Maria had always loved visiting him in his workshop.Only she had been allowed because she was the oldest.He could do anything with his own two hands,she thought(1)
    Recently,Maria had decided that she was going to build a tree swing.Now she was standing(2)
the tree,with her rope,seat,and tools,thinking about the best way to(3)
the swing.She could throw the ropes(4)
the branch.But then how would she tie the knot?She would probably need to(5)
a ladder.
    "Hey,what're you doing?" called a voice from a little distance away.Maria turned and saw her little brother Ricardo ran up to her. "None of your business," she replied.Then,thinking better of it,she said, "(6)
a swing."
    "Really?Can I help?" Ricardo asked.Maria thought it over — it would be nice to have some help.But she was the builder in the family now,so she would have to solve her own problems. "No," Maria said. "I don't need any help."
    Suddenly,her other brother,Emil,came running towards them. "Hey,what're you guys doing?"
    "We're building a swing," Ricardo said.
    "No,we're not," Maria said. "I am!"
    "Can I help?" Emil asked. "No!" Maria was turning red. "This is my project.Not yours.You (7)
even knew Grandpa." She ran into the house,leaving Ricardo,Emil,and her materi als beneath the tree.
    "What's wrong,Maria?" Grandma asked.
    "Ricardo and Emil are bothering me," Maria explained the situation.
    "They're just trying to help.And how are you going to do it all by yourself?"
    "Grandpa didn't need anyone's help," Maria said.
    "Who do you think helped him cut the boards for your tree fort?"
    Grandma asked.Maria was(8)
. "But I don't remember..."
    "Maria,Grandpa was a great carpenter,but even great carpenters need help sometimes.(9)
he needed a second pair of hands,he'd ask me to help." Grandma glanced out the window. "And it looked like you need help,too."
    Maria hurried outside.Ricardo and Emil were carrying the ladder in the yard,waving at Maria.Smiling,she began to wonder if she might not be the only one to(10)
