Today Abilene and I decided to head into the forest!

We are singers, and we needed to learn some new songs from the birds!

As we were singing, we noticed quite a commotion with the squirrels!

They had been run out of their house by the tree,

who was repossessing it.

Times are tough,” said the tree.

“And lately, it feels like all I ever do is give.”

Would we like to join her for a cup of tea?

We told the tree thanks for all that she had done for us.

And then suddenly we spied a little red elf running by the tree’s house!

We thanked the tree for the tea and quickly followed after him!

We knocked on the door,

and he was very kind to ask us in.

He had made it himself, he said,

to have very low impact on the environment.

    thank you so very much for this!! your story reminds me of a perfect day in the woods, and of the magic of wood and water sprites that has never died in my heart. bless you for encouraging your little one to believe. had i ever had the priviledge of having a child, myself, this sounds like an utterly perfect way to spend an afternoon. i wish there were even more people like you in the world! :)
