Now is the season for kids to share their school work as soon as they walk in the door.
So, for this week’s Friday Flashback, I chose a similar moment from a couple years back:
Anabelle read aloud what Sam brought home from school – it was Sam’s ‘silly’ sentence from music that was to help diagram the notes of the treble clef: E, G, B, D, F.
I was washing dishes as I heard Anabelle read, “Every Girl Barfs when Daisies Fart.”
I turned to see a cartoon drawing of a flower with bubbles coming out of it and a girl beside the flower with stars shooting out of her mouth.
When I asked Sam about it he said, “When I read my sentence, the class loved it.”
“And the teacher?” I pressed.
Sam replied, “She said, ‘While that’s very creatively done, I’m afraid we can’t hang that up in the hall.’” Sam’s grin was so wide I couldn’t help but grin with him.
On the bright side, I don’t believe he will forget the notes of the treble clef!
