This morning, we finished Charlotte’s Web, saying “Good-bye! good-bye!“ to one magical story… just like Charlotte’s own children do as they fly away from the barn. At the same time, we’re saying “Hello! hello!” to the emerging spiders in the corners of our own home and the webs that glisten in our outdoor railing every morning.
Vivienne’s favorite part? “That Wilbur had his little baby spiders because it’s joyful and relieving.” (I’m not kidding; that’s what she said.)
My favorite part? Well, I especially love the ending and aspire to it… “It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both.”
