Tom talks about the "dream" he had, which he recalled for aunt Polly. She doesn't know that Tom was really outside the house listening in on the conversation. Tom recalls the entire situation word for word and aunt Polly thinks he can see into the future. She gives Tom a big apple and sends him and Sid off to school. As they are walking Tom feels a mile high, and all of the boys are jealous although they try not to show it. Tom tries to make Becky jealous by talking with Amy Lawrence, but his plan backfires and she goes over to another boy, Alfred Temple. And Tom stares helplessly at the pair, as Amy continues to ramble on and Tom answers halfheartedly. Becky can't help but notice him, but she pretends not to have a care in the world and Tom leaves Amy angrily and goes home at noon seething at Alfred saying he would beat him senseless. When Becky leaves Alfred crying, Tom wants to get back at Tom and dumps ink all over his book.

Overall, windsor was a fun trip. it had its ups and its downs, but as a team we made it work.
When we got to WIndsor after the 90 minute bus drive, my legs were sore. After we stepped out into the cool afternoon breeze and took our bags out of the bottom of the bus, we headed to our cabins. We were in cabin number two, the most spacious by far (besides 5.5 of course) and once were scrambled to get the best bunk, we dropped our bags and went to the steps to get our debriefing. We met Tom, the head of windsor, and his gang of people from outside the country. We then hung out in the cabins, played ping pong and just explored. After they rung the bell it was time to head in for lunch: cheeseburgers. The food was delicious, and continued that way for the rest of the stay. While all of the activities there were fun, one of my favorite was the waterfont. It was like an obsticle course, but in the water. We had to work as a team to get a tennis ball around an obstacle course and onto the other side of the dock. We had the best time of all the groups to complete the course at 4.35 minutes. But it was not until our last try that we did it when we all collaborated on who did which job best and stuch to the plan that we had descussed before the last trial. When we stuck to the plan that we had discussed, it worked the best. e all played manhunt and "star spinning" that night everyone was having a good time. When we all went to bed, everyone was exhausted and fell asleep quickly from the day of excitement. The next day was much the same and when it was time to go, everyone was sad. we had a quick lunch and got on the bus to go back. I took a nap on the way back for the whole time and when we got back I couldn't believe it was already over. Everyone said their goodbyes, and left and it was over.
