I have a little guest post for you. I threw my back out and can only be at my computer for about five minutes until the pain is more than I can stand, but my Youngest had to write a descriptive essay for home school and he has decided to share it with you. It's about where he lives so I've posted a picture of our home from last fall. Hope you enjoy it! *Please note the typing, spelling- it's all his. :)
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * *My name is Asher and I'm going to tell you where I live, and what it looks like, feels like, and smells like. My street is "F" st., and my house number is 2000. It's a big house, and it's as yellow as the sun. My family thinks it's very ugly, and we want to make it green. Our house has a garage that's also very yellow, but it's okay. It's not nearly as big as the house, but has the same shape. Our house has a slanted roof, and a bunch of mini-roofs jutting out certain windows.
Now, our yard is a pretty big yard, about 3/4 anchor or so, which is very big for Vancouver! It's a garden, so we can't just randomly go crazy. It's lush green, with dazzling plants like weeds. And that's just one of the wonderful plants we have. We have a compost and garden box, one where all our eggshells and things like that go to help make fertile soil. (My brother Jonas takes care of the compost). I, on the other hand, take care of the garden box. I hoe and plant veggies and things like that. It can be a pain, but it's worth it. The garden smells like air, unless you smell one of the plants.
We live near the street, and cars seem to sometimes go past it. I live in the Arnada neiborhood. we live right across the street from our friend Diane's house. Her house is small and blue, with leaves ever so falling on it. Her yard is small and well-cared for, with lots of plants, few weeds, and a shed at one corner. So that's where I live, what it looks like, smells like, and things like that.
