This tale was written by Emma and she has generously agreed to allow me to share it here with all of you. She will finish it at a later date since she was too tired to do so now.
“Horses Will Never Fly ~ By Emma
Long ago horses were mean animals. If anyone tried to go near, they charged at them. They had big wings and flew higher than eagles.
One day they flew around and caused so much wind that the dust began to fly. Dust and sand covered big areas of earth, making deserts. People and trees were buried below the dust.
Finally when they rested they saw their wings had begun to shed…”
Originally Emma ended this with “They stopped flying. Horses will never fly. The end.” But once we returned to our hotel and discussed it more, Em said it wasn’t quite finished and promised to finish it later when she wasn’t so tired. In addition, I added the punctuation with Emma’s approval. As there is no way to punctuate from a stencil board it must be done afterwards.
These sessions are exhausting and she works so hard. Her story reminded me of Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories that I loved as a child. I cannot wait to read what Emma writes next!
