Fly Day

Sweet girl decided that she wanted to learn about 'those little birds that are always outside' , AKA sparrows. So after printing and colouring a picture, she drew her own version, made labels and stuck them on. We made some little feeders to hang outside as well, although Gilby and the neighbour's dog scare all the birds off, and it's still hanging, sadly neglected. In the afternoon we went to the zoo and saw some more birds.

Oh, so lovely and the drawing is brilliant. Lucky birds in your garden to enjoy such a treat :)

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.
