Bella's Thanksgiving Poem

Whew! I have LOTS to catch up on! But I'll post this poem for starters.
We just got back into town yesterday afternoon, and for some reason, Bella is convinced that she MUST bring a travel log of her Thanksgiving Vacation to school today - in POEM format.

me: A poem, really? You're teacher told you to write a poem about your vacation?
bella: Yes Mom! (roll of the eyes) Really! We have to, I'm supposed to. Jackson's mom wrote a note last time. And I get to read it before I get on the bus! What will I read before the bus if you don't write something, Mom!?

So here we are. I'm really not sure why - and I know that was NOT the assigned homework - but when Bella is convinced, Bella is convinced. So, here you go Mrs. Jolstad!

Thanksgiving Break
By Bella (& Cumorah) McOmber

For this Thanksgiving
We traveled by air
To California,
To meet the Hunt family there.

Nana and Bapa,
Cousins, uncles and aunts,
Met in Pico Rivera
To party, play, and dance.

Great-Grandma Zena
Was turning ninety,
So we gathered together –
The celebration was “finey”.

We stopped at Disneyland,
The beach, and the L.A. Zoo.
We made a feast for Thanksgiving
And shopped a lot too.

In Valencia we took Daisy and Ivy
Outside for a walk,
Then sat by the fish pond
As we ate and talked.

We went bowling next
With all of the crew.
Nana almost bowled a turkey,
And even Calvin scored a few.

The Sedighis invited us
For a Persian meal,
Nothing was spared –
They served us with zeal!

Seeing family is great
We had a fun time,
But now we’re glad to be home
And are done with this rhyme!
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
I'll post pictures with a few more details (without rhyming!) shortly.
