She wrote this story for school and read it to us at conferences this week. I loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you. Here's what she wrote, exactly as she wrote it.
My Mom's Trip to Haiti

|Getting love from the girls standing in line for food.|
It seemed weird without my mom but I started to figure it out. My family and I came and went to school off and on. On Tuesday we went to a friends houses and on Wensday we didn't ride the bus we went to dance or the pick up line. I had thought we were doing well and we were. My dad asked me if I missed her and I said, "Do you know how when something is gone and you are doing fine without it but you want it to come back' and he said, "Yeah. I have felt like that."
