Ashlyn the aspiring writer...

Many of you may have known that our 6 year old daughter is an 'aspiring writer'. Ü She doesn't leave the house without a journal or pad of paper to take notes, write stories, or in her words, "keep track of her inspirations!"

This came home from school today, and I thought you might enjoy it. I'll include the exact wording and spellings as well!

"When I Grow Up" by Ashlyn Kofford

When I grow up I'll be a famous writer.
In the morning I'll think about my story. Then in the afternoon I'll write. Finally at night I'll think abowt (about) wet (what) comes next. I'll love writing. I'll be a carit (carrot) top too.
I can't wait till I'm a grown up! I'll live in a hut in Hawaii! I'll have six Hawaiian cats with hibiscus in thar (their) fur. My hobby will be traviling (traveling) evry (every) summer. Being a grown up will be so much fun!
I'll have 3 kids named...Serena, Mary, and Mike. Thall (they'll) be so cute! Hopefully, my husband will be handsome. But if not, I'll still love him!

Gee, I already know my grandkids names, and where Ashlyn will be living with her "hopefully" handsome husband one day. Now, where will we find Kyle? My guess is China... but more on that story later!

Well Ashlyn...the apple doesn't fall far from the tree! I believe you are going to be a great writer and live in a hut in Hawaii with three kids and a handsome husband. I look forward to meeting them all one day, hee hee.

Denise, glad your Mom is doing so well in Red Bluff.

I still think you should You-Tube your Video of the party. That would be great to see!

Take care, Laura
