When I grow up, I will sail the seven seas.
I'll strap a sword to my side and a parrot
will ride on my shoulder.
I'll stomp around in boots and I'll always
wear my tri-cornered hat, even when I sleep.
When I grow up, my treasure chest will be full of
gold doubloons and I will bury it on a
secret island surrounded by sharks.
I'll call my friends silly names like Scurvy Rat or
Peg Leg and we will say, "Argh" just for fun.
I will climb my ship's mast so I can see past the
horizon wile I look for mermaids. And when I catch
one, she'll tell me all her secrets.
When I grow up, I'll shoot cannonballs at sea monsters.
When I grow up, I'll be a pirate.
|I wrote the words in chalk first to make sure the placement worked|
|Then used a damp washcloth to erase after the quilting|
|I had to add a sword too|
|Tossed pirates and ocean waves for the backing|
This one will be turned in to Project Linus next week. I'm hoping a young boy will choose this one and enjoy his imagination as he looks at all the prints and asks someone to read it to him. Although I tried to work this out using print, rather than cursive, it didn't seem to work for me.
Enjoy your day!
