What it’s Like on the Farm
Today, Grandpa and his grandson are riding the tractor to get away from the house. The house is too small, there is no room. They are heading out to the corn and wheat fields. Grandpa’s name is Bob, and his grandson’s name is Billy.
The time of year is fall, the weather is cold and chilly. They both grabbed their jackets, hats, and mittens before they left. They might be buying some things in the store for their brothers and sisters because it’s close to Christmas.
They are being careful not to travel on the grass, they want to travel on the road. They are heading to school, and they are giving tractor rides to the school kids.
They have arrived so they can purchase milk, corn, bread, churned butter. The butter doesn’t have much taste unless you add salt. The store smells wet and moldy today. They are making chocolate chip cookies and putting them in a row. They taste like chocolate, nice and cool. And you can taste the butter! And you can smell the butter and vanilla.
Bob and Billy’s farm is in an orchard. Guess what, that small house is really an outhouse! They really enjoy spending time together; Billy’s mom and dad are always working. Billy learns a lot from his grandma who likes cooking. He learns what he needs to start baking. Billy gets so smart out on the farm.
Billy has 10 cousins! Grandpa Bob and Grandma help all the grandkids out. They like to eat when they’re busy. They love eating cookies!
The boys go to find grandma and they find her inside. They decided to have a big coffee party, but Billy had cold milk and Coke. They ate sugar cookies together. They warm up the cookies on the hood of the tractor!

The Boy in the Laundry Basket
A little boy fell asleep, curled up in a laundry basket. His name is Jonathon. He is taking a break from his family asking him to do this, that and the other things. Jonathon has a mama and a papa, a grandma as well as a brother and a sister.
His family is upstairs and Jonathon is in the basement. His family is going about their normal, everyday things and Jonathon escaped! Jonathon is hiding out so he doesn’t have to do any work. Who would think to look in a laundry basket? The washing machine is running…rub a dub dub, 3 men in a tub. The sounds are making him sleepy and the room smells like laundry soap.
Before Jonathon escaped to the basement, he was eating a hot dog. After he ate, he got so sleepy and that’s when he decided to sneak downstairs. After his nap, he work up and saw there were no cloths and he wonders what is happening. But then he sees there ARE cloths in the basket and thinks maybe he will give them to the goodwill. Soon, his family will come get him because it’s time for the next meal. And guess what? There having hot dogs!
