A duty is a tour, staying in one place for a period of time. Mom and I toured Delaware for one week.
Did you know Delaware joined the United States before any other state, but they drug their feet signing the Constitution? I don’t know if that means anything now, but Delawareans must think it does. All their license plates say “First State” like it’s a big deal.
I can’t tell the difference between Delaware and Pennsylvania. One minute we are in one state, and then there is a sign by the road and we are in a different state. I’m very confused. All the towns look pretty and most of them look really old. This town is New Castle. I didn’t see any new castles or old ones either, just big brick houses.
Hal let me eat at a tavern, but he made me drink coffee and eat soup – no beer. The soup was too hot, so I blew on it real hard. I got some pieces on Hal’s sweater, but he wiped them off, and didn’t get mad at me. He squirted me with a lemon, so we’re even.
Inside the tavern the servers looked old – really old, like 300 years old or so. Mr. Day, the tavern owner, said they brought history to life. I wonder if someone will pretend to be me when I die.
I wanted to go talk to this re-enactor, but Mom said he was just himself. He looked like a character to me. Do you think he was real?
I think it would be hard to ride bicycles here. Look at this rocky road. Is that where rocky road ice cream came from?
Mom, Hal, and I had a great time touring New Castle, DE. The Courthouse is going to become a National Park. This town looks like Colonial Williamsburg, but Hal doesn’t want it to become famous, so please don’t go visit it.
Writing stories when you travel is really easy. I wish you would send me a story you wrote. Here is the way I write a story.
Step One – Look at a picture. Tell what you think about it.
Step Two – Look at another picture. Tell what you think about it.
Step Three – Look at what you wrote and see how it starts to become a story or narrative.
Step Four – Go back to the beginning of the page. Write a topic sentence.
Step Five – Put some more pictures that finish telling the story, and save the rest of the pictures for another story.
Step Six – Write a conclusion, and then press publish. The proof reader makes you fix your spelling. Press publish again.
