James' Gems

James has been writing in a journal this summer for school. He doesn't so much write in it willingly, but he does it none the less. I have realized, two weeks from the start of school, that I am guilty of making summer too much fun! James doesn't want to go back to school because he's having too much fun. Time to slow down and have him scrub the toilet every day! Just joking. But really, I do want a slow week or two before school starts. Anyhow, moving along, here are a few of my favorite tales from James' writing:

Once upon a time there was a moose named Clyde. Clyde had a problem. His antlers could fit a jillion people on them. One day a boy named Tom (came along). Clyde said What's your name? Tom. What's yours? said Tom. Clyde. Hi Clyde. Big Antlers, Clyde. I have scissors so I will trim your antlers. OK. So he did and then it was time for Tom to go home and so they did and everyone lived happily ever after.

Once upon a time there was a skyscraper named Cleedo. He was 1000 feet tall. Once at night he was a star and so the star said do you want to be me? Yes and I want to be you. Do you want to trade places? Yes! So they did but after a hour they were board (ha!) and so they traded places again. Then they stayed like that forever and everyone lived happily ever after.

I invented a holiday called James day. When my sister and mom buy dumtruck loads of store bought pizza. If I get sick then my sister will take care of that. I love pizza. My sister would complain. I might let them have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 pieces.
