{words with friends} off into the sunset

See? There he goes. Off into the sunset.

And my my, when that sun goes down it gets cccold! I gave in and wore socks and shoes today.

You've just gotta hear these boys laugh when I read this poem to them. It's hilarious.

"I know all the sounds that the animals make
And make them all day from the moment I wake
I roar like a mouse and I purr like a moose
I hoot like a duck and I moo like a goose.

I squeak like a cat and I quack like a frog
I oink like a bear and I honk like a hog
I croak like a cow and I bark like a bee
No wonder the animals marvel at me."
---Jack Prelutsky

We're memorizing "I Eat My Peas With Honey" -- I recited it when I was seven or eight, so it's really fun to teach it to my kids. Have you heard it?

I eat my peas with honey.
I've done it all my life. 
It makes the peas taste funny
But it keeps them on my knife!

So there you go. Your literacy lesson for the day. You're welcome. :)

AND I folded the laundry, did the dishes and said goodnight to the kids three times. *fist bump*
