A Homeschool Family #109


Here is the assignment: This week’s theme is about your family. Don’t worry. I’m not going to make you write a long essay about all the great things your family does. Just something little diddy that I know everyone will have fun with!

I couldn't figure out how to post the video so for those of you who don't know the poems are to the tune of the old TV show the Adam's Family. If you search on youtube.com you will find the video.
So here are my few verses. At first it was kind of frustrating to find things that rhymed but also had to do with our family and school. Then it kind of took off on it's own and became a fun way of letting out some stress. So here it goes . . .

We live in a small town
It causes us to frown
Somedays we need a clown
The Emmons Family

They think our school's a joke
They tease, make fun and poke
I need another coke
The Emmons Family

We shoot hoops for phys ed class
And learn to make a pass
We run barefoot in the grass
The Emmons Family

We learn of kings and queens
The function of your spleen
And everything in between
The Emmons Family

Our children love to read
To search and find milkweed
They really will succeed
The Emmons Family

We learned about creation
His-tory is our passion
Of God and every nation
The Emmons Family

They think we march offbeat
but our lives are more complete
Somedays are really sweet
The Emmons Family

"adore"
"explore"
"amore"

So that gives you some fun insight to our family. Once you start this project the list could go on and on. The possibilities are endless just like homeschooling.

Hi!
Thanks for you comment! I agree, this was fun after all -- and yours turned out great.
I enjoyed seeing the artwork below this post -- 2 of my boys painted Starry Night at co-op but haven't finished them. I must admit your girls pictures look must better! :D
Come visit me again,
Amy
