Grandma essie

  1. 1. April 21, 2010 Prairie from a poem by Carl Sandburg I speak of new cities and new people. I tell you the past is a bucket of ashes. I tell you yesterday is a wind gone down, a sun dropped in the west. I tell you there is nothing in the world only an ocean of tomorrows, a sky of tomorrows. I am a brother of the cornhuskers who say at sundown: Tomorrow is a day.

  4. 4. April 21, 2010 Steps in a Process Packing for the Move Today is moving day for my family. Yesterday I packed everything in my room. First, Dad helped me tape the bottoms of several cartons. Then, we labeled the outside of each box. Next, I packed all my books in the box labeled "Nathan's Books." I put my games and stuffed animals in another box. My clothes went in a big box called a wardrobe container. Finally, I had everything ready for the movers except my hamster, Jolly. I didn't think he'd like being in a box. I was glad when Dad said I could hold him on my lap while we drive to our new home!
