a tale from milkweed meadow

when B disappears for awhile and all is quiet, you can be sure she is up to something...usually something good! yesterday afternoon B decided to write a story. maybe it was the new Five in a Row book we started this week that was written by a 14 year old girl that inspired her or maybe it was jo in Little Women who is always writing dramatic plays! whatever it was, her imagination was unleashed and when she was done she had printed her story and presented it to me tied with a ribbon. what a girl.

Once upon a time, there was three little mice called Squeaky, Scrabble, and Shim, and they lived in Milkweed Meadow in a small rose bush....

she ended the episode with a promise, "to be continued..." i can't wait to see what will happen next! and i don't just mean in the story...i mean in the life of my girl who wants to grow up and be an equestrian -veterinarian- artist- farmer-knitter- zoo keeper- weaver- baker- author. ;o)
everyday gift: a budding young author

how sweeeeet! I love that story so far. It cracks me up all the things she wants to be, A has a similar long list. Isn't that sweet?

Oh, that is so cool, Stacy! What a blessing your little girl is, and what wonderful plans she has for her life. I hope she gets to experience ALL those things. :)

Btw, how'd the Klondike thing go? I came looking for an update on that. ;)

missy, thanks for reading! and asking about the guys. they had a great time at the klondike...but alas, they did not take the camera and the details are too sketchy to blog about!
