A budding writer in the house

Eden's in first grade now, and starting to write weekly essays for homework. The teacher has asked us not to correct the kids' spelling, since phonetic writing is part of the learning curve. Some of her attempts are just plain adorable I can't help memorializing them. Last week she chose the topic, "One little ship can ____." Here's what she came up with. (Notice how she works Iowa in to the essay. She does that just about every chance she can.)

One little ship can go. The ship is saling it is going a
vare laog wea to Iowa. Did you noe that thar is a
wotrfol in the back of the owshin.
