The story continues. Here’s Chapter 5!
It’s fun to write to my kids’ sense of humor. Chapter 6 is almost done. I had to take a long walk tonight to figure out what I wanted to have happen in chapter 7 — it became a full-page outline. And then, I could work backwards from there to get things set up right in chapter 6. I’m on track to have the whole thing finished by the time the kids and Amy go “off the grid” for family reunion. I can’t miss that deadline, since they won’t have access to the internet to get the exciting conclusion if I’m late!
I’m also very excited to bring you chapter two of Ethan’s story:
But no one else had that trouble.
Then the next night, the boy went sleep walking again. He ate all their food. He went out the front door and ate their neighbor’s food. He went back to bed.
In the morning, the parents said, “Where has the food gone?” Then they heard the doorbell. Their neighbors came in. They said, “Did you eat our food?” and the parents said, “No.” So, they both called a detective. The detective came. They asked him to find out who stole their food. Then the next night, the boy came up and sleep walked AGAIN! He at their food, he ate their neighbor’s food, he ate the neighbor’s neighbor’s food then went back to bed.
In the morning, the detective got up and looked for clues. All he found was a bunch of footprints and even more crumbs.
