When they come home they have breakfast with their mother Lisa.
After breakfast, Lisa goes to work.
Mary and Jane walk to school. They leave the house at half past six and
they get to school at seven. At twelve o'clock they have a lunch break.
The school finishes at half past two and the girls walk home. They go
and get water again. They do the washing and clean their small house.
