An Unexpected Arrival – Part 1

Hello! Happy Father’s Day! I have been working on a photostory. Enjoy Part 1!

An Unexpected Arrival – Part 1

( Told from Ivy’s POV)

It was a sweltering hot summer day.

The twins were chattering away as usual, probably planning what to do next.

Ava was humming to one of her favorite songs a little too loudly.

Mary Lynn was trying to convince Surjan to eat ice cream. For some reason, she doesn’t like ice cream. So she was eating a cupcake.

I was sitting there, eating my Popsicle and trying to talk over Ava’s humming.

All too soon, I finished my Popsicle. I set the stick aside and lay down on the grass, closing my eyes and enjoying the sudden breeze.

The sun felt good and the ground wasn’t too hard.

While I was lying there, the twins finished their treats and asked Surjan to play hide and seek with them.

Surjan agreed and began to count. “One, two, three, four…..”

The twins jumped up, climbed over the drowsy Mary Lynn, and ran to hide.

Ava, too, soon finished her Popsicle and sat back, still humming.

I guess I must have dozed off, because next thing I knew, ML was shaking me.

AnunexpectedarrivalPart1 034 (800x600)

“Ivy! Wake up! We have company!”

AnunexpectedarrivalPart1 035 (800x600)

I jumped to my feet and stared.

There, in the yard, were three girls. The tallest one looked to be a little younger than me, and the youngest girl was about the twin’s age. “Um, hi! I’m Hope!”, said the oldest girl. “These are my sisters, Gracie and Nancy. Is this the home of Miss Clara?”

Ava walked up to Hope and shook her hand. “I’m Ava! Miss Clara does live here. Please come in out of this heat and you can explain why you are here.”

To be continued…….

Yep, Nancy is the doll I found at Goodwill! she is an 18″ Fancy Nancy doll. The little doll, Gracie, is a doll I found a another thrift store soon after I got Nancy. She is customized now. More on both of them soon!

Have a great day! 🙂
