Yes! I am so excited about starting this colony! I also can't wait to see cousin Maria!
Are you excited to start the new colony with Uncle John?
I am going upstairs now, Mother. Goodbye.
Okay Lila. Your brother will get you when dinner is ready.
Dear Diary, Sorry I have been gone for so long....
On the left, Lila's Brother Zach is calling Lila for lunch. On the right, Lila is say I'm coming. While she is talking, she is finishing her diary entry. It says, Okay diary, I have to go eat lunch now, but I will tell you more about this journey when I come back from lunch. What could this journey be? You will find out soon.
Hello, Uncle John! This place is very interesting.
Lila is having lunch with her brother Zach. Zach asks Lila, "Are you excited to start the new colony with Uncle John?" Lila answers "Yes! I am so excited about starting this colony! I also can't wait to see cousin Maria!" That must have been the journey that Lila was talking about in her diary. This must be very exciting for Lila because she is starting one of the first colonies with her uncle John White and his crew. This colony will be built on Roanoke Island.
I will. I know. Goodbye.
Lila is back in her room writing in her diary. In the thought bubble, she is thinking of what she is writing. When she is finished, this is what her diary entry says: Dear Diary, Sorry I have been gone for so long. My mom made me help with my brothers load of dishes because he had to do "manly" things, so it took a while to wash. Tomorrow, we will land at our destination. Write to you soon, Lila.
Everyone, we have to go! We are under attak! Grab 3 of your most valuble items, a blanket, and a pillow.
Here is where they arrive in the colony. There are already a few shacks built. They are greeting each other. Lila is saying that the place is very interesting. Soon after, John will show them where to go. After that, Lila writes in her diary about what it is like and how her Uncle John will have to leave in a couple of days to get supplies from England.
In this scene, John is leaving for England. Elizabeth, Lila's mom is telling John to be safe. Her dad Edwin is telling him to be careful. He is telling them that he will be safe and he knows to be careful. He is about to get on the boat. Little does he know that something horrible will happen when he's gone.
Stay safe, John.
In this scene, Lila's dad Edwin is shouting that everyone needs to evacuate because they are under attack. Lila says oh no! She is thinking about what to bring with her. She knows that she will bring her diary and her favorite stuffed animal but what to bring as her third item? She decides to bring an oil lamp and some matches. Once everyone is packed, they are off to the mystery spot... the secret fort.... To Be Continued.
