TBT: Missing Little Sister

Sitting by the garden
Once upon a time there was a little girl. She lived out in the country on an acre of land with her family. There was her father, her mother, her little brother and her baby sister. They had moved there after her father was transferred into the area. It was a big transition for the little first grader. For as long as she could remember, she lived on her grandpa and grandma's farm surrounded by much of her extended family.

Her mom and dad loved a big garden and raised goats so the acreage in the country was the perfect place to live. During the warmer months, her dad would walk the goats down the road to an abandoned farm overgrown with tall grass and let them wander there and eat all that they wanted. He would leave them there for awhile and come back to bring them home.

Her baby sister was still small and took naps during the day. One day while she was napping, her parents were out in the yard tending the garden while she and her brother played. After some time her mom went in to check on her sister and found that she wasn't in her bed!

She searched all over the house for the toddler but could not find her. After searching everywhere in the house and around the property, her parents decided to take a look down the road. There was their youngest, a toddler, on her way back up the road. She had woken up from her nap, didn't see anyone in the house and thought that her daddy had taken the goats down the road. She set off to find them. When she saw they weren't down the road, she turned around and came back. What a relief to see her making her way home as we ran to greet her!
