Hi from Sophie 🦊

Hi! I’m Sophie. I’m going on this “Strong Historical American Women Tour” with my mom and sister tomorrow (I am not packed yet). It is mostly to see Laura Ingalls Wilder houses and stuff, because of my mom. I have been a huge Annie Oakley fan since I was about 8: I was looking through a stack of old books that my mom had got out, and I came across a “Step into Reading” book, called “Little Sure Shot: The Story of Annie Oakley”, and I sat down and read it right there. The book only had 48 pages, so I finished pretty quickly. But I couldn’t put it down. I read it over and over, until I pretty much had it memorized. I went to the library and I got as many books about her as I could. But now, almost 5 years later, I still have that same book about Little Sure Shot that started it all off, and that inspired me to ask my mom if we could go to her grave on our tour as well, so we changed the name from “Laura Ingalls Wilder Tour” to “SHAW” tour.

  1. What a treasure for us that you are sharing your adventures. I am looking forward to hearing and reading and enjoying all that the three of you write.


  2. I love your introduction! I wonder if there is another book about Strong American Women in our future. I am excited to follow your words about this incredible experience.


  3. Hey Sophie and mom and sis!
    Great to hear that you are all setting out and we look forward to hearing of your adventures. I was just wondering though, if there is sushi in the mid-west….? πŸ™‚
    Sending love and good thoughts from LA and Elderberries.


  4. What a great adventure this will be! I can’t wait to hear more! Also, I hope when Charlotte is older that she too will have a passion for reading like you πŸ™‚


  5. Since i don’t have a girl, i would just have to enjoy reading your post Sophie. You need to tell us all the details and interesting stuff you see and read on your adventure. Gabriel read 2 books of Laura Ingalls Wilder and i don’t think he even finished the second book ( not interested at all )!
    Have a great trip sweet girl and enjoy the time you have with your mom and sister. I’m kind of “jelly” about your tip… πŸ™‚ Take care..

    Much love to the Foster gals!! xo


  7. Sophie, this sounds so amazing! I grew up reading all of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books and I loved them all so much! Keep writing so that we can follow you!


  8. Hi Sophie,

    I remember reading that book! Wasn’t Annie Oakley able to shoot something behind her while riding a horse and looking in a mirror? I hope you have a fantastic trip. Give Annie my love.

    • She could shoot something looking in a mirror, but I don’t think she could do it on the back of a horse. She could also look into a knife blade with her gun behind her back and shoot straight through the middle of a card. 😘🦊
