Floats My Boat

Though it's been an incredibly wet and cold winter thus far, we have had a few days of sunshine and warmer temperatures to keep us going. On one such day, Denver was home from school with the tail end of a nasty flu, and someone suggested we make boats. Well why not?
I then asked if they wanted to go and float them in the duck pond near our house when they were finished. We thought we could put nice messages on them for people to find.
Denver decided to write "You Are Cool", and Kyla wrote "Never Stop Smiling", Sienna scribbled on hers :)

Boats at the ready.

Boats completed, it was off down to the pond, to launch them.
Off to the duck pond.LaunchingNever Stop SmilingYou are cool
And of course no trip to the duck pond is complete without feeding our duck friends.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
