We've been exploring the writing process in language arts. Kate has been as frustrated by the editing process as each of her sisters before her. Here is her final draft.
I felt good about doing something nice for someone else. Harper is a girl my age in our community who is really sick with cancer. She has two sisters who are also sad because their sister is so sick. I heard they like American Girl dolls but didn't have any. I let each of them choose one of mine. After they picked their favorites, I picked out clothes and furniture to go with them. Harper, Finely and Cadence were excited to get new dolls. I felt good about myself for giving something to a family hurting so much.
If you care to follow Harper's courageous battle with cancer, you can follow her caringbridge site at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/harperwehneman1
or her dad's blog at http://thewadventures.blogspot.com/. Please keep this family in your prayers. Harper is Kate's age and this horrible disease literally came out of nowhere.
