It was with much joy that I observed our five oldest children sitting around the table together writing limericks.
I thought I would share a few.
From Thomas - age 16
There once was an old man from York
Who went to the pond to catch a stork.
No bird did he find there
Instead a great black bear
Which ate the old man with a fork.
From Isaac - age 12
I saw a bird in a tree
I looked at it and it looked back at me.
I started to say,
"What a beautiful day!"
When it started to fly to the sea.
From Abby - age 10
I want to be in the cast
But the play was real fast.
It was pretty boring
when it was time for showing,
but overall the show was a blast.
(The language homeschool books we use for the elementary years is the Language Lessons series by Sandi Queen which has a Charlotte Mason flavor.)
