Story Link-Up

My Sweet Son, John was sitting next to me one evening while I was designing this blog and said he wanted to blog too. He wanted to write a story! For my readers! (son... I don't even have any yet! lol)

So I opened a New Post page and began typing as he told me a story. It was the longest story he's ever told. :) There was a fire in his little heart. <3 I typed as he talked (lucky I have a transcribing background... because he talked fast!) and as he told me his story, I knew this was the beginning of an adventure for him.  So I went with it all the way!

We ended up printing his story out. He drew a picture for it. Then he created a title page. He went all out! And we stapled his pages together and that's when he told me there would be more chapters! :)

So stay tuned! I will post all the chapters of his adventure story here. And if you have a blog and a kid (or two or more!) who loves to story tell.. please share any posts with us here so we can read them too!

P.S. The name "Life of John" comes from his love of the Life of Fred math books. You know the ones! The ones that bring math and reading and imagination and creativity to life in the hands of anyone who reads them. We love Fred now in our house because reading Fred ultimately changed the ball game for my son John and sparked a love for learning inside that has been leading us all over the place! This little nugget of creative exploration, writing stories, is one of them. :)

P.P.S. Dr. Stanley F. Schmidt, if you ever come across our family homeschool blog and have an issue with this *Life of John* stuff... please please please let us know!! We would hate to have any kind of beef with you... since you are currently my son's favorite author!! My e-mail address is! Please e-mail me right away! TY!
