I was recently introduced to this series of videos on YouTube. Kids create dialogue regarding a given scenario, and then adults act them out. Some of them are quite entertaining. Here are my two favorites (of the few that I watched).
In going through my closets in preparation for my upcoming trip, I came across a whole box of these things. They are loaded with everything from college papers to pictures to music to creative writing endeavors to lesson plans. Makes me feel a bit antiquated!
As we drove along a street in Suburbia on Monday, Krista and I observed a man arriving home from a trip to the grocery store. He carried a bag of what appeared to be eggs as he wheeled into his driveway...... on his unicycle. I was sorry that conditions were not optimal for getting a picture.
This past Saturday, a few friends came over to Mom and Dad's to help critique some hymns regarding sing-ability. Somehow, I only managed to get one picture of that actual event. (And that one didn't turn out too well.) The rest of my photo-taking energy was directed toward a certain little bright-eyed cutie. All critiques on this "side note" were exceedingly positive!
"Do you want my pacifier?"
All evening, Eleanor would hold up one finger when asked how old she was. (Her birthday was the 12th.) The exception to the rule was when I had the camera pointed in her direction. Here Grandma coaxes to no avail.
In response to my entry "Poetree" back in April, I received a few lovely tree poems. No one gave me specific permission to share their poem, so I will refrain. However, I very much enjoyed reading them myself and would still be interested in seeing yours if you forgot to send it earlier. 😉
Here are a "few" more trees that I found when I was looking for pictures on line if you need further inspiration. 😃
Aren't they beautiful? Don't they just require poetry?
