My sweet baby started 1st grade this week…sniff, sniff….So big!

During a business trip last week, I started reading the Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud.  I wasn’t sure I was blown away by the first book…But apparently I was interested, so I read the second.  By the third I knew I liked them.  But then, I have a tendency to like teenage adventure stories.  You should check them out.  It’s approach was a little different.

I‘ve been working on my sewing “do over,” and it doesn’t suck.  I’m trying to figure out a way to do a big reveal without actually having to be in the picture.  Let’s just file this under the “Coming Soon!” heading.

This one remembered she had a B.B. gun and set about to teach herself how to shoot. Have you ever seen a hot pink B.B. gun?  Is it just a Texas thing?  Anyway, she also wrote a Cinquain poem this week in class that I think is awesome:

athletic, funny
laughing, swimming, running
Totally the class clown


I like the Cinquain form, it’s fun and there are a lot of variations.  I think I may have to do a Cinquain for the Weekend…. 🙂

  1. Thank you for the suggestion of the new reads; I like you prefer teen fiction, especially fantasy/adventure! I’ve written it on my “to read” list on my iPhone.
    I’ve never heard of Cinquain form, but then again, I’m not much into prose. I will have to ask my daughter who is an English major (this will be her second degree – she is already an RN). 🙂
    The hot pink BB gun is awesome!

  2. Hello Amy, I remember like if it was yesterday when my son started first grade, time flies ,,,he is a teenager now, taller than me 🙂 enjoy this age..
