The Moles of White Lake

Winter had finally set in for the small family of moles living on the shores of White Lake.  Summer seemed to fly by and before the family knew it, the cold winds of October had begun to blow.  The family had spent most of the summer preparing for the winter season by collecting earthworms to be consumed during the winter months.  The earth worms were being stored in underground “larders” or storage areas in the ground.

Mickey, the oldest boy of the family, had taken great pride in his ability to catch and store so many earthworms in the larders.  After his birth in the spring of 2009, Mickey grew fast and was forever roaming the grassy area of the savannah.  His parents, Grover and Lilly were constantly reminding Mickey to stay near and not to wonder too far from the safe long grass near the lake.

Meanwhile, his sister Alli was forever exploring the lakeshore for new things.  Alli enjoyed the many flowers that seemed to be everywhere.  She had found Black-Eyed-Susans, Marigolds, Bloodroots, Jack-in-the-Pulpits, Violets, Orchids, and Shooting Stars.  Alli had very little time for collecting earthworms.  She felt that was a job better left for the men of the family.  Alli was more content simply relaxing in the beauty of the flowers.

However, there were many dangers that lurked in the small savannah of the lake.  For in that same area lived eagles, red-tailed hawks, owls, red fox, and wild cats.  Alli needed to learn to take care of herself because there would come a day when her parents would no longer be there for her.
