An Excited Disaster ~ A Photo Story

Taryn quietly sat up in bed. She was about to go up stairs when she remembered. She had chicken pox! "Oh." she groaned as she felt her head.

 " Wait!" She looked down at her hands. " It's GONE!!!" She shouted as she threw her hands up in the air! 

She raced up stairs to tell her Mom and Dad. When they saw it was gone they said " Now We'll tell you." " What!?" Taryn cried. " It's snowing! " They said together. " We didn't want to tell you when you we're sick because we thought that would make it worse." her Mom said but, Taryn didn't hear her she had all ready got her snow clothes on and ran outside!

She ran towards the lake,

Skates in hand!

"Finally," she whispered, " I'll have another chance at the skating competition!"

She raced down the hill to the lake and out on to the dock. The ice was clean from the wind, no snow to clear away! She plopped down to  put her skates on.

They felt so good to have on again.

She remembered to take her glasses of but..............she forgot to check the ice first.

She twirled and glided across the ice gracefully.

Until she lept into a mid-air spin!

She came crashing down and the ice splintered under her!

She desperately grasped for something and, she found a large branch.

She was soaked to the waist! How would she get back to the house now!!!
It was a long way back to the house.

But she had to get back or she would freeze!

So she whispered a prayer, 

and she began to crawl up the hill because she was too cold to walk.

It seemed like forever before she got up the hill and, she was going to sit the bushes for a break. She was about to sit down but, a voice in her head told her to keep going.

She still had a long way to go.

But she kept going.

She had finally made it.But frozen fingers were to cold to open the door so, she knocked as loud as she could.

Then she fell unconscious against the door.


"Ugh," Taryn groaned. She felt cold still.

"How do you feel?" her Mom  asked. "A little cold is all." Taryn answered. "Good." her Dad said "Now lie down."

her Mom put another blanket over her then said," I called the doctor and the doctor said-"

"No more monkeys jumpin' on the bed?" Taryn said grinning. "No," her Dad said " at least a day in bed!" "Oh." Taryn sighed. "Now try to get to sleep." her Mom said as they left.

"Well, from bed to adventure then back to bed. Oh well." She said to her self as she drifted off to sleep.



Thanks for reading!

In Flanders Field
By John McCrae

In Flanders field the poppies blow  
Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; still in the sky 
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow

Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders field

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders field


Never forget.

New On the Farm

So yesterday my dad said there was someone outside I should see.
I went out the door and dad handed me a bridle I stared at him for a second, then I dashed off to the corral. There he was!

"He is beautiful!" I whispered.

I slowly walked closer.

I dropped the bridle and slowly raised my hand. he sniffed it gingerly. Now for a lot of pictures.

Let's check your hooves.

And the back ones too!

Now let's see if this fits.



So Champlain is finally  here! ( Review coming soon.)And I love him so much!

Hi guys! So today I am going to get a pumpkin from my uncle! he grows them and sells them in his garden! Customers get first pick, of course, but that's OK! 

Oh look! There he is!

Well three choices! Let's see! 

I guess I should take a closer look!

Awww! This one has little stripes!

But, it has a bit of a dent in it.
Option #2

Looks good but...

This would be in the way!

Option #3

Umm, yep! I think I've chosen!
So let's get this home!

My uncle said I should take them all so the chickens could eat the ones I don't use! So let's get ready!

First I'll put down some newspaper so I don't make a mess!

There we go!
Now let's get the tools!

Good! Lots of different tools give you lots of choices!

A bowl for the "guts"!

Now let's find a pattern! Aww! This one is so cute let's use it!

There we go! Perfect!

Let's open this up!

Wow! Lots of seed in a big pumpkin!

Roll up the sleeves! Let's go!

Ah! Much better!

If I poke the holes, then I can follow them with the knife!


Perfect! Just one more thing!

A candle!

All done now I have my own jack-o-lantern! 
I hope you enjoyed!
