I don’t exactly remember the order, but this is what I remember:
I was exploring the coast along Lake Michigan, but it was rocky, and my friend was exploring down below, closer to the water. Two creatures had washed up on a boulder below. They were transparent like crystal, and one resembled a crawfish. I don’t remember the other. I pointed them out to my friend and asked her if she had noticed. She said that she had.
My aunt was visiting with my mom for a while, and my mom dropped me and my sister off at a daycare. I was frustrated, thinking “Aren’t we old enough?” (And we didn’t actually have anyone watching us. We were just dropped off at the building and had to stay inside. I remember there being multiple rooms and staircases.) Eventually, my aunt came to pick us back up.
I was at my house, out on a balcony, I suppose, but my house opened up to a center grassy area, surrounded by houses on all other sides, and in the distance was either the ocean or the sea. Then, military helicopters began flying in. I didn’t know why they were there. They dropped of children who I assumed were there for military training. They were marching in rows, sometimes locking arms, but they were dressed normally. They were all white with blonde hair — I remember the girls’ long blonde curls — and some looked as young as 5 years old.
I apologize for the conglomeration of notes that follow. I feel like there’s a lot here, but I’m not ready to pinpoint and analyze it all at this point. Needless to say, I felt absolutely wonderful waking up this morning;I know that much!
