Once upon a time

there was a big bird.

For those having trouble reading the story (it photographed fairly dark), it reads as follows (with corrections to spelling):

Once upon a time there was a big bird.  The bird went to a baseball game.  The bird went behind the backstop.  Then she went to a park.  The bird went on the swings.  It was hard to go uphill.  The bird was upset.  The boy bird blinked at the girl bird.  They fell in love.  They both saw a shrimp.  The birds blinked at it.  The boy bird saw himself in a mirror.  The two birds saw the sunset.

And from the picture we see that they kissed.

The above is – as noted – chapter 9 of Vash’s bird story.  The kids in his class are asked to write stories using their spelling words (the circled words) and Vash’s have mainly centered around his baby bird.  Well, today the birds are growing up and romance is alive in the first grade classroom.

Vash said he forgot to write in that they ate the shrimp – together.  Just letting you know.  Chip and I think he might have confused blinked with winked, but hey – its his story.  He can write it however he wants.

As the school year is coming to a close, more and more class projects are finding their way home.  This morning Vash proudly produced the following flower . . . .

and his caterpillar . . . .

Court was canceled for today so that means I get to run to the store and pick up his birthday cupcake cake for school and (hopefully) get my car out of the shop.  Who knows, maybe I can find time to blink at my husband and we can run out and share a shrimp!!

    LOL! I hope you and Chip can find the time to blink at each other. Please tell Vash I love his story and would like to read more of his stories, so I hope he writes more of them for you to post. His flower and caterpillar are also very cool.

      I love them kissing at the end as the sun sinks low behind the mountains. I’ve got a little romantic on my hands. His Thanksgiving one was so cool we hung it on the wall. I will get that one in on another post for these periods when I am just doing non-stop stockinette stitch on big things.
