Conditions of Use
One warm and sunny morning, Hattie and Otto headed out to their land out in Nebraska to homestead. They told me that it was a bumpy ride. They had to ration food so that they would still have food at their new land and live in the wagon. Once they got there they both said that the land was nice, it was very big too.
As soon as Hattie and Otto started to build the house a massive storm appeared and a lightning bolt struck their house. It made the house burn down, luckily no body got hurt. Otto said that they can still make it through the rough times. So they had to go back to living in their wagon.
As the house was burning down Hattie thought about the box that Spencer gave her. She went over to the wagon, she was about to open it but then she stopped. She thought about Spencer, he told her to only open it if things got there worst. Otto said that they can still make it on their own. So she did not open the box.
After about a week Otto found his axe that he brought. He went straight out to the woods to go and cut down some wood. It took him about two weeks to cut down enough wood. When he was finished he stopped for 3 days then he started building. It took less time to build the house because they already know what they want it to look like.
Although times for Hattie and Otto were hard, they still made it through. That is the story on Hattie’s b-day box. Thanks for reading my story.
