if you look closely
just to the left
of the little blue suitcase
a curious young boy
the summer holiday
the best part of it all
safe behind the glass
peeking out into the world
eyes open and full of wonder.
“if a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.”
on the last day
in the last hour
of a wild ride
in a year of ups and downs
we all made it through
the kinder emerged stronger than ever
taking a final gentle walk
into the sunshowers of summer.
“now shall i walk or shall i ride? ‘ride,’ pleasure said; ‘walk’ joy replied.”
today, someone decided
to quietly dump every single puzzle out onto the floor
mix the pieces together
then head up to the loft to play.
it was left in a perfect state of tobubohu
but somehow i couldn’t think of that word
at the moment of discovery
tomorrow we will work on it together
and with it will come a new word.
part of speech: noun
origin: hebrew, unknown
1. a state of chaos, utter confusion
examples in a sentence:
“The mayor’s unexpected announcement left the press in a tohubohu.”
“After recess the students were always in a tohubohu.”
anyone else ever achieve this perfect state?
r figures out a way to play hopscotch
“learning sleeps and snores in libraries, but wisdom is everywhere, wide awake, on tiptoe.”
another delightful discovery
“nature was here a series of wonders, and a fund of delight.”
after hiking to the secret climbing tree
mother nature designed
only for kids
we enter under the canopy of emerald leaves
to find the magic inside.
“wood is only one-syllable word, but behind it lies a world full of beauty and wonder.”
grandie j is at it again
this time it’s pop-up slushie stand
raising money for a boy shed
a clubhouse for him and his friends
lots of work, lots of fun
lots of choices on the treats n’ eats menu
riding off on bikes to drum up business
lots of happy customers
all the employees had rainbow tongues
(it’s important for them to like their own product)
great business, great profits
off to a great start.
“whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision.”
have you ever touched a rainbow?
it’s pure magic.
“and as he spoke of understanding,
i looked up and saw the rainbow leap with flames of many colors over me.”
the best opening line ever
makes this my absolute favorite ode to mom
from a child in my class this year.
happy mother’s day to all
“being a mom has made me really tired and so happy.”
why oh why does our paper fly?
we’ll try over and over and over again
until we find out why.
“learning never exhausts the mind.”
