I got the poems this week from A Burst of Firsts. It is a great book of poems, make sure to check it out. Just in case any one could not understand everything I thought that I would include the poems each one read, starting with Sam and then Gabe's.
First Person to Create Blue Jeans
Levi Strauss - San Francisco - 1873
First, coal miners wore the pants.
(Denim came from southern France.)
Cowboys followed, then came teens--
Half the world is wearing jeans.
You decide which pair you want--
Zipper-fly or button-front,
Loose-fit, wide leg, classic kind...
Half the world's been redesigned,
Sew it seams, on its behind.
First Time the Sound Barrier Was Broken
By a Brontosaurus -- About 100 million years ago
A Brontosaurus tail
Could cause a frightful gale.
THE SNEEZE! The sudden lash,
The wind -- and then the CRASH!
What first broke the sound barrier?
A Brontosaurus derriere.
I am going to video tape the boys each week for their public speaking so I will try and share it with you all. I hope to get back here soon, who knows though. Got a lot of work to do around here right now, a certian little boy around here turns 8 on the 12th. Hope to see you all soon, hacve a good one.
