How to spot a writer...

Doo Doo and the Grumpy Giant

Tonight I’ll share another Doo Doo Story that I found rather inventive. Again, the girls helped me fill in the blanks. This is by far the longest one!!! Once upon a time, there was a large, mean, ugly giant who lived in the sky. His ears were so large that he could hear everything all […]

"There's No Place Like..."
