Poetry: All in the Family

​My granddaughter, Evie, is loving kindergarten! One of her first homework assignments was to make an "All About Me" bag. Earlier this week, I found this post on Facebook.


For Evelyn's all about me homework project she asked me to take this picture of her holding Lullaby and Kisses Sweet open to Grandma's poem "Snack Time."  She wants to tell her class that she likes to write poetry with her grandmother. She came up with this all on her own!

 
 
 
Look at that face!   When I read those words and saw the picture of my precious girl, my heart just melted.  I love being a Grandma!  When Evie and Victor (my adorable grandson) come for their next visit, we're going to the Land of the Little Horses (sounds magical, doesn't it)!  I can't wait to write a poem with Evie about our adventure.  We're going to try to get Victor in the act too, if we can get him to sit still long enough. He loves to sing and dance!  I tried to attach of video of my little guy dancing, but it just wouldn't cooperate.  I'll try again soon.
 
 Now, let's head over to Linda's place at Teacher Dance for today's poetry roundup.
 
Have a great Labor Day weekend!

    1. Irene, I wish I could have gotten the video of Victor dancing to work. It would have made you smile. I'll see if I can share it on Facebook. Thanks for stopping by! xo

  2. Hello Linda,
    Your "Snack Time" poem also went to my grand-nephew, Wil, in Rhode Island, for his 1st birthday gift book & his parents said they are enjoying it a lot.
    I love that fun anthology & congratulations on appearing on those board book pages. It's a real treat of a book.
    Wishes for a wonderful middle grade new school year.

  3. There is little better than having a grandchild, Linda. What a wonderful thing that Evie chose for her 'me' bag. I hope you have fun writing together. I looked at that "land of the little horses" site-sounds great for Evie and Victor, maybe poetry inspiration, too! Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Hi Linda, I can't wait to take them to see the little horses. I always wanted to take my sons when they were small, but somehow we never made it. I won't let that happen this time around! I hope you're weekend is wonderful too!

  4. Now that's a compliment if ever there was one, Grandma--So cool that writing poetry with you is one of the ways that she defines herself!

    1. Buffy, I was so tickled when my son called to tell me about it. I haven't stopped smiling since. I hope you're off having a relaxing (and inspiring) weekend!

  5. Linda, how wonderful that your granddaughter wants to share her grandmother's poem with her classmates. This is such a heartwarming story. Enjoy the next visit and I look forward to the land of the little horses writing. Maybe a family poem can be created to grace my fall gallery of digital inspirations.

    1. Carol, I'm going to try to visit her class later this year. Maybe Evie and I can share one of the poems we wrote together.

      I don't think I've seen your gallery yet, but I'll visit your site sometime this week and take a look! Thanks for thinking of me! Have a great weekend!
