Freckles looked down and seen what looked like a soft red carpet. He took one
giant leap down and couldn’t wait to land on the soft red carpet. His sore feet landed and
Freckles slipped down to the cold ground. These strawberries are slippery but yummy.
As he cleaned himself up he studied the tangled vines. He remembered reading about
monkeys swinging from vine to vine. Oh what a fun place this would be to live. It also
has food and shade. But when he tried…Continue

I wanted to share it with you here and would love to get feedback about your experiences as a mother and your reflections on the first year of motherhood.

My daughter Anna will be entering college next fall. I’m both excited and terrified for her and her friends. Who’s to assure us parents that our children won’t encounter a campus security officer like Lieutenant John Pike of the University of California at Davis?
By now many of us have seen the picture of Lt. Pike dressed in riot gear, looking more like a parody of law enforcement as he mindlessly douses a line of innocent kids with pepper spray. He’s as nonchalant as if he…

Hello ladies of She Writes! I've been quietly lurking around She Writes since June 2010, although I know I haven't been using it enough. (I wish there was a way to have my RSS feed post blog entries from my site onto She Writes automatically. Is there?)

The next day Freckles sailed his lily pad out to see if he could find the right place
for him. He waved goodbye to his family and started off on his adventure.
He came across a deer and a wood duck. They all had lunch together and told
Freckles about the story of the Great Purple Flower Hanging Basket. But you must pass
through the Field of Giant Yellow Sunflowers then the Tangled Vines of Red
Strawberries to get to the Great Purple Flower Hanging Basket…Continue
