Robin opened his mouth to put Sara in her place, when Uncle Thomas intervened hurriedly:
"Much as I'd like to have you boys beside me, I think it would be better if you went in the back. More room." So Sara made a triumphant face at Robin, and climing into the front seat, was proceeding to make herself comfortable, when her mother looked up from the welter of luggage and bicycles and boys which was surrounding her and said:
"Don't sit about, Sara, get up and do something."
