  • get puppies
  • finish addition in rocket math- I'm close.
  • start and try to teach puppies how to fetch and obey
  • write eight letters to family members
  • decorate my bedroom wall- Mom says we can do this on my birthday since she is going out of town.
  • go on three hikes
  • reread Black Stallion
Are you working on a list too?

Saturday Afternoon Poetry, Week 6

Coil and hiss--writhe and twist--
My hairdo won’t get done.

‘Cause one hair hissing, “Ponytail,”

And one yells, “Simple bun,”

One whispers, “Cornrows,”

One screams, “Bangs.”

One shouts, “Just wash and dry it.”

One snaps, “No, curl and tie it,”
One hollers, “Bleach and dye it.”
And how am I to fix my hair

If my hair will not keep quiet?

Saturday Afternoon Poetry, week 5

Making Light of Auntie
by X. J. Kennedy

I like to shuffle in my socks
across our scuffy carpet.

And touch Aunt Sue
and give her shocks.
I gave her one so sharp it
caused her to shoot right out of her shoes
with WOW a big blue spark!
Now Auntie Sue's the bulb we use

to read by after dark.

Being a Good Steward

My family and I hate littering. Why do people think it's OK to throw their trash on the ground? We were on a hike today at the Roaring River State Park in Cassville, Missouri. We came to a very beautiful place. See?

Anyway, we got out of the car to take pictures and saw a TON of trash all over the place right above where this picture was taken. Including three tires, a garbage can, a case of beer bottles, an old sweatshirt, two dirty diapers, and a bunch more trash. (SUPER DISGUSTING!) I said, "I wish we had plastic bags to pick it up." Luckily, Mom keeps a thing of WalMart sacks in her trunk. Of course, we got them out and our family picked up trash. Look what we found.

We felt fantastic about helping a pretty place look better. After that we went for a hike up to a spring house. The spring house wasn't so great, but look at what pictures I took.

Missouri really is a beautiful place to live. I'm proud that we left the place nicer than we found it.

Please tell me you don't litter, do you?
