9 of 31 Dear Sam

I was going to write a blog post about the state speech competition today, or about the passion of my speech kids, but when I got home, Chloe had already written a post. Well, not really a post. She wrote a letter to Ruth's son, Sam. Sorry. The rest of you will have to wait...

Dear Sam,

I WISH you could come and sit with me. I was home alone for a long time. My dad went some place without me and didn't come home until afternoon! I can't believe they left me home alone.

If you came to see me, we could play on my hill. It's really fun. I climb up to the top and then I slide down it. Sometimes, Mom gives me toys to play with. I take them up the hill and then I chase after them. It's cool.

Mom says you can come anytime to visit. Maybe we could make those cookies you talked about, but I bet my dad won't let me have any. He says dogs can't have chocolate. Phooey.

Anyway, I hope we can play together some time. But until then, we can be pen pals:)



  1. Dear Chloe-
    What are you talking about, dogs can't have chocolate. I eat it every chance I get- every time my boys leave it out in their bedrooms or on the kitchen counter. I have been known to eat a whole bag of chocolate chips! I would like to come visit you and Sam. My mom was home all day, but she said she wouldn't walk me in a blizzard. I don't know what she is talking about- a little snow never hurt anyone! Star

  2. Dear Chloe,
    Sam is going to be ecstatic to read your letter tomorrow. Thanks for taking the time to write him back. He LOVES your author photo.
    Happy writing,
    Ruth (aka: Sam's mom)

  3. Love it! I am sure that Sam is going to be thrilled! are pretty awesome!

  4. Chloe, it's so nice to think of others even when you're lonely. How great to write Sam to invite him over to play. You will make a good friend for him!

  5. I really want to be pen-pals, so sure. We have a big hill too. I go sledding down it just like you do. Do you go sledding? Have you ever gone sledding? love, SAM

  6. Poor Chloe - home all alone. I'm sure Sam will come and play one day. I know Max would if he was closer. He was home alone this morning and tried to ignore us when we got home.

  7. Deb, I love Chloe's voice in your writing. Sam is a lucky guy to get a letter. I love writing letters and still jot notes to people. Something special about getting something addressed to just you (and not a bill).

    1. Thanks, MaryHelen. It's been fun writing back and forth with him. Sam has definitely taken a liking to Chloe
