The children have been collecting Lizards for their pets in a jar this week. I was extremely happy to see that they did not just go out and collect 10 of the same Lizard but I can see how much they have grown in their studies because they only collected different specimens. I am very impressed. They are also learning which lizards bite the hardest hehehe! All this Lizard hunting has inspired some new journal entries as well.
Here is a poem from a young man from Pennsylvania it says that Nathan Messner is in Kindergarten!
Not Green Geckos
I have two lizards who are not green
The boy is fat the girl is lean
The boy is Barnes and the girl is Jackie
The don't make noise, so they don't go quacky!
My gecko's aren't the same color at all.
The girl is short the boys is tall.
All over his body the boy has black spots.
The kind of look like squashed up dots.
The girl has dots on her head and tail.
Sometimes in the tank they look kind of frail.
Crickets and meal worms are their favorite food.
They're never in a grumpy mood.
I love my geckos who are lizards.
In all kinds of Weather even blizzards.
I'm the oldest kid in my family
And that's why I have my gecko's, you see!
I have begun toying around with some patterns for the fall. I tried out a new one today that was a modern sort of wrap blouse. I of course put my own spin on it and made it more like a modern sort of wrap vest. I love to layer my clothes...dresses with pants....tshirts with my dresses or something over it I have no idea why I like to do this I guess it is just something special about me lol! Probably not the most exciting fact to know about this Heather! But I put it out there anyways hehehe!! This vest will be great to wear with short sleeve tshirts or when it is cool a long sleeve tshirt. I especially like how it is so different from anything else in my closet right now. I used a steel blue linen like fabric but now that I am feeling confident with this pattern I will probably bust out a fabric that is a little more bold.
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, If anything is excellent or praise worthy- think about such things. And the God of peace will be with you.Philippians4:8-9
