Homeschool kids write assignment #17

On this assignment I am supposed to take a fairy tale but tell it from a different point of view.
I picked Cap o' Rushes, an old English fairy tale. I am going to tell it from the cap o' rushes point of view.
Hello. I am a cap o' rushes.The woman that made me uses me herself. She is wearing me to disguise herself because her father has kicked her out of the house. He had asked all his daughters how much they loved them and she said that she loved him as much as meat loved salt. So she was kicked out.
Well she found a home to stay in and is a servant there. They call her Cap o' Rushes because she will not tell them her name. One day there was a ball and everyone was invited, even all the servants. The other servants told Cap o' Rushes about it but she was tired and did not want to go. But as soon as they were gone she took me off and under me there was a beautiful gown. And then she went to the ball and danced with her master's son all night. She went home before the ball ended and the next day the servants told her all about the lady at the ball. They also told her that there was to be another ball that night and that the lady was sure to be there. That evening the lady said that she was to tired to go. But as soon as everyone was gone she took me off and there was that beautiful gown again. She went to the dance and came home before it ended. The next day the servants told her that there was to be another dance this evening and she was sure to be there. That evening Cap o' Rushes said that she was to tired to go. Then she took me off and there was that gown. And off she went to the dance. Well that night the masters son asked her her name but she would not answer. So he gave her a ring and said if he did not see her again he would die. So the next day the servants told her that she wouldn't be able to see the lady for there wasn't to be any more dances. Well the masters son asked everyone about the lady but no one knew anything about her. So he got so sick that he had to stay to his bed. One day the cook was making him some gruel and Cap o' Rushes came in and asked if she could make it. At first the cook said no but finally she gave in. Before the cook took it upstairs Cap o' Rushes put the ring in the bowl. When the man had drank all the gruel he found the ring and asked who had made the gruel. The cook said that she did and he said  "No you did not. Tell me who made it and you shall not be harmed."
So the cook told him that it was Cap o' Rushes and he sent for her and asked her where she had gotten the ring. She said that she got it from the man that gave it to her and he asked who she was and she said that she would show him.
So she took me off and there she was in her beautiful clothes. Well the masters son got better very fast and they were to be married soon. Her father was invited but still no one knew who she was. The day of the wedding the lady told the cook she didn't want any salt on any dish. At the wedding no one could eat the food because it had no taste. But her father had a bite of every dish and started crying. The masters son asked him what was the matter and he said "I had a daughter. And I asked her how much she loved me and she said as much as meat loved salt and I kicked her out of my house and now I know that she loved me best. And she may be dead for all I know." 'No father she is here." And cap o' rushes went up to him and put her arms around him.
And they lived happily ever after.

Mom's quilt

Hey. I am staying at my grandma's house right now and I have been making my mom a quilt for her birthday. She is on a mission trip so I sent her a picture of it on her birthday. It wasn't finished then and it still isn't now. My grandma is hemming the ends right now. After that I have to sew on the label and then it will be done. I can't wait until I can see mom and show it to her. My grandma made my mom a sock monkey tote bag. This is a sock monkey quilt to go along with that. My sister is going to make a sock monkey wonder wallet for her to. Well that's it.

Fourth of July

On the fourth of July we went to my grandparents house for a barbecue. At the barbecue our cousins invited us to stay the night at their house so that  we could stay and watch the fireworks (because we were going to go to our friends house to watch their fireworks) but our parents said no. So we went home and then mom found out that she had left her purse at grandmas house and Jordan left his camera. So when everyone but mom got in the car dad told us that we had one minute to get clothes. We got to stay the night! I spent most of my minute saying goodbye to mom. On the way dad told us that we had to tell everyone that our parents forgot us. When we got there I ran in and grabbed my moms purse and brought it to dad . When I got there my little cousin Sergio asked me what I was doing back. So I said "Our parents forgot us". So Sergio ran to his dad saying" Oh my gosh. Dad! Dad!"

Dog Show

Last month my Mom, Dad, Nathan, Jordan, Kathryn, Aunt Lisa Emily Christina and I went to the Dog Show. We had a great time!!!!!
We looked at all kinds of dogs. There were Huskies, St. Bernard's, Great Danes, Dalmations, and a lot more. We met a movie star!!!!!
This is the movie actor we met!!!!! He was a St. Bernard and he acted in the movie Snow Buddies.

It was really fun and exciting.
We all won a backpack and a bag of dog food.
We met five Great Danes, two Dalmations, one St. Bernard, and I think three Huskies!!!!!
Then we went out for lunch (I think everyone had to take home leftovers) and then we went home.
It was one of the most fun days of my life.
Thank you Aunt Lisa Emily and Christina!!!!!
