Excitement! Olivia will be posting pictures here more or less ... we might start with less but I'm working on talking her into more.

Sunday Poetry Post

The end of school always seems topsy-turvy to me. Its sinking in with my kids that summer is beginning but recess is ending.

Mixed-Up School
by X J Kennedy

We have a crazy mixed-up school.
Our teacher Mrs. Cheetah
Makes us talk backwards. Nicer cat
You wouldn't want to meet a.

To start the day we eat our lunch,
Then do some heavy dome-work.
The boys' and girls' rooms go to us,
The hamster marks our homework.

At recess time we race inside
To don our diving goggles,
Play pin-the-donkey-on-the-tail,
Ball-foot or ap-for-bobbles.

Old Cheetah with a chunk of chalk
Writes right across two blackbirds,
And when she says, "Go home!" we walk
The whole way barefoot backwards.
