Our new Pets

 Sienna wanted some tadpoles. We brought four from the local pet shop, but unfortunately none survived. So we decided to go and get frogs instead. We have three, which were all named Stanley by Sienna. Sienna likes to draw pictures of them, I thought this one of Stanley catching a fly was really cute, and Rog is back to chasing flies around the house with his big blue butterfly net.

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.
