First Story

Hadley wrote her first story today, and because I have a slight interest in writing, I thought I should document the artist at work.

The inspiration for the story comes from the picture she drew to her right (you can see it on the paper that's taped to the window).

In the above picture she's taking a look at her "rough draft" to get the letters down correctly on her own piece of paper.  She told me what was going on in the picture, and I wrote it down for her so she could copy them.

Here she is working hard.
(She did not draw that tree.  I did that. It's good, right?  Hadley drew the leaves.)

After awhile, Hadley needed to pull up a chair and sit down.  Writing is tough stuff.  It wears you out.
Here is Hadley's story.  Before you read it, I'd like you to know that I had nothing to do with the topic.  This is all Hadley.
"Once there was a little girl who was stuck in the spider's tummy and was named Sarah."

Poor Sarah.  Poor, poor Sarah.

Oh my gosh, I have to read this story to Joshua. He loves spiders, the bigger the better. He's constantly asking to go outside and see our two enormous spiders in their webs. He's going to be very jealous of Sarah, whoever she is.

I'm really looking forward to the sequel of Hadley's first story. And so is Joshua. He'd also like a picture of the spider to hang on our fridge. But let Hadley draw it, because I saw your tree.

(Sorry, just kidding, it was a beautiful tree.)
