The other day, Nathaniel wrote a paragraph for his grammar which was rather amusing. Here’s the exclusive, unedited version.
Oh, to sit at a desk and write. The words pour from my pen like water over a waterfall. What joy it gives me (when I do it right) to show that finished work to someone. And that thrilling chill when a smile creeps over their face and I wonder is it from my horrible grammar or was it actually amusing.
He’s a good writer and a bit of a silly. It gave Mom a good laugh!
One of the really nice things about living in Florida is that there is a lot to do. A couple weeks ago the whole family went out to Common Grounds park here in Lakeland. It’s a unique park, with a lot of different places to climb and run.
They even have a tunnel that goes through an artificial mountain! The best part is the entire family can play there.
That’s right I said the complete, whole, and entire family. This includes Mom and Dad. It was a fun weekend outing!
As promised yesterday, this post will tell all about Veronica’s new song idea. For some background, you need to be aware that there is a song called the House of Singing Bamboo that was sung by Rosemary Clooney. So, Veronica goes running down the hall to Mom and Dad’s room and begins to pitch her idea. She says “I wrote a song. It’s not much, but I think it’s good. We should give it a try.” Barely able to hold back her excitement she sings “In the house, the house of screaming baboons! Baboons are looking at YOU. In the house of screaming baboons.” So far only three lines, but Dad seems to be behind it. Mom’s not as sure.
