The Indigo Shawl

posted Apr 1, 2010, 10:01 PM by MaryFrances Lynch

I went to the kitchen table and ate my bland cereal while I was thinking about my Aunt coming back from Russia. When I was crunching on my Cheerios my twin baby brothers Ryan and Riley started to fight about how was going to get the most pancakes. Then my older brother, Mark came in yawning. “Good morning.” Said my dad when he walked into the kitchen. “When is Aunty coming?” Asked Ryan. Right then my mom walked in with my oldest sister, Tina. “At noon,” she said to us, “she has surprise for us, though.” I slurped my cranberry juice as my twin brothers went to the living room. “Don’t choke.” My brother said reproachfully. I glared at him as he ran upstairs. I got up and hugged my sister and said good morning to her and washed the dishes when I was washing them I had a vivid memory that Auntie’s surprises were always awesome. When I was done, I went to my room and laid on my bed. Then Tina came in with a big book . I always loved Tina because of her nonchalant ways, but when she brought in that big book I knew she was concerned about something. She told me the surprise was that my great grandma from Russia was coming with Aunty. She showed me some pictures of her, and then that made lots of questions. How old is she? How many brothers and sisters does she have? Does she know me? I deiced that I would preserve these questions for her later.  Suddenly, DING-dong! DING-dong! I ran to the door, there sitting in a wheelchair sat my great grandma with my aunt standing right next to her. I hugged my Aunt while Tina pushed my great grandma into the living room. After I hugged my Aunt I went to the kitchen to help cook lunch. 1:23, I had to exert to get all of the food cooked right. After the lunch with egg pudding, we all went to the living room to talk. Soon after great grandma learned all our names I asked her the questions that were in my head. She said that she was 89 years old and that she had 3 sisters and 8 brothers including my dad. When I was done asking the questions she gave me, my sister and my brothers 1 gift. We opened them. My sister got pretty glass debris earrings. My older brother got a maul that was painted red. My twin brothers both got speckled stuffed houses. Finally I got indigo shawl. It was very cute and then I put it on. My aunt said that my great grandma made it her self. I got up and hugged her and then vanquished my sister to my room. I still have the shawl, but it is now prettier that ever.

The fish story

posted Apr 7, 2009, 1:45 PM by Mary Fran Lynch

One day I found out that I had earned all the money I needed to get a betta fish.  I always wanted one because I heard that bettas live for a long time.  When we get to the pet shop I was so excited.  When I got the fish part, I knew I would name my fish Nikki.  When I found the fish that I wanted, it was bright red and very healthy.  So I bought it and went home to clean the tank that we got.  And after we were done, I knew I picked a good fish. 
The End.
(And just to tell you, my fish Nikki is still alive!)

Hi, my name is AC.  Go get it! Wow, that's a big one!  O sorry, I forgot to tell you.  I'm in the Y.S.G. which means Young Science Group.  We are catching Nutrias.  Did you know, they are all over the place, destroying out wetlands and munching on the wild grasses and ripping out plants by the roots?  The the soil washes and then other plants can't grow.  That leaves no place for other animals to live in!  That isn't all.  The invaders and other invaders are the cane toads, they cause a lot of trouble in Australia.  People brought them there to eat the Beetes, but then they started to eat everything!  Red Lion fish are trouble too.  The lion fish naturally live in the south pacific ocean.  But some how they moved and they are killing lots of small fish.  The last trouble maker is the emerald ash borer, the problem is that there are a lot of them and when they are born, the babies eat the tree bark.  When the tree does not have bark they die.  That is why we have to have the Y.S.G. to stop all the trouble in the world.

The Magic Fish

posted Mar 18, 2009, 7:38 AM by MaryFrances Lynch

Once upon a time, there was a family that lived in a small cottage. Later that day the dad complained that their house was too small. Then the mom started complaining, she said “I’m hungry.” So the sister and the brother went down to the river to catch a fish. When they caught the fish, to their surprise the fish started to complain. He said, ”I’m tired of my slimy friends being caught, can you make one wish for me?” “O.K.” said the surprise children. “But then can you grant us two wishes?” they said. “OK” said the fish, “What are they?” he asked. The kids said,” We wish to never run out of food, and can you turn our cottage into a castle.” the fish said “Your wishes are granted, now can you make me river move to the woods far away so no one can catch us?” “Yes” said the kids. And when their wishes came true they all live happily ever after.

How I got in my brother's body.

posted Mar 12, 2009, 8:47 AM by Mary Fran Lynch

One day I found a sting ray.  I left it alone.  But I just then remembered that my teacher said, "tomorrow I want to learn about the inside of a body, so be prepared."  "I know just how to learn."  I said to myself.  I shrunk myself and I went to my brother's room, (he was sick) and  I was just in time.  My brother was eating hot soup.  So I jumped in and then he swallowed me.  Then I was in a a weird place, later I realized I was in the stomach.  (Now I can tell why they say, "my stomach is upset!")  Then later I saw these cell things.  Then I said, "That is blood."  Later, I guessed that I was in the eye.  It was way different then I thought it would be.  The things my brother are seeing are backwards.  I said to myself, "I have to do something!"  But then I saw that his brain switched it around.  I left the eyeball and I guess went to the lungs.   At the lungs I saw a big hole.  It was closing and opening.  "I think that is where he breathes," I said.  Later I started to get tired.  Then I realized that he was coughing.  So I finally got out of the body and then I got back to my normal size.  The next day, I told my whole class and they loved it.  And when I got home, my brother was better.  And that's how I got in my brother's body. 

Tipper's Story

posted Mar 2, 2009, 4:31 PM by Mary Fran Lynch   [ updated Apr 26, 2009, 9:30 PM ]

Hi, I’m Tipper the crayfish. I’m the one who’s telling the story. The story is about me.

       Once upon a time, I was put in a small aquarium. Later when I woke up from my nap, I was in a classroom and I saw big giant looking things. They where shrouding me. It was very scary. Then I found out the big giant things were kids. The next day I heard the kids talking about me, they said, “My name is Tipper I am 11 c. long and weighs 12 grams.” They said I have one stubby leg and I am calm, (But I’m not always calm.) I was curious, I have white specks on my upper body, and I don’t have my long antennae. When they let me out, they said,  “Tipper likes to crawl off decks”(and I do) then they thought me to pick up a paper and then drop it.

              In the end they were very nice.



The Forest

posted Jan 31, 2009, 10:33 PM by Mary Fran Lynch

Have you been n the forest? To me the forest is a calm, relaxing place where you can have peace. You can smell the strong smell of the pine needles and you can smell the bitter smell of the bark.

As I listened, I heard people playing basketball and the balls made a boom sound when they hit the ground. I heard an airplane go by and cars making a screech noise.  also heard the wind whistling a sweet sound.

I gazed at the dark bumpy, narrow, shadowy, and curved mountains. The sun was bright and sunny. I saw trees and the light brown dirt.

I felt the sharp pine needles and the smooth bark. The forest is a great place to hand out.
