Sundries

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:

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

 

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…. 🙂
