Storyboard Text

  • Sure, but we have to run errands so you can only go for about 15 minutes. 
  • Can I go play at Josh's please?
  • I really hope Elise can play but if not then I will just go there by myself.
  • Knock Knock
  • On a fall, late afternoon in October of 2008, I had asked my mother if I could go to the neighbors (Josh’s) house to play. My mother said “Sure! But only for about 15 minutes because we have some errands to run.” I said “Ok!” and ran out the door and scootered on over to my friend Elise’s house and knocked on her door.
  • I will ask her if she wants to and send her outside to talk to you.
  • Can Elise play and go to Josh's with me? 
  • At this point, I felt like I was empowered in the fact that I was on top of the world and could do things on my own and had the power to actually get out of the house and play on my own or with friends. 
  • I just have to grab my scooter quick if that's ok. 
  • Ok that's fine. I'll probably just go home when you do then. 
  • When I arrived at Elise's house, I knocked on her door and her mother Julie answered. 
  • I can only play for 15 minutes. 
  • When Julie answered the door, she invited me inside. I asked her if Elise wanted to go to Josh's to play. When I went outside to wait, Julie asked Elise if she wanted to and sent her my way. 
  • Elise came outside and said that she wanted to play at Josh's too. She grabbed her scooter so that she could ride with me down there instead of having to walk. 
  • Elise and I both had our scooters and scootered on down to Josh's.  Elise and I raced each other to see who could get their first. Elise beat me because I was taking my time and didn't want to go too fast and end up falling off.
