prim2pink ~ letter F


“I am so glad that all of you children did so well on your exam last week.” said Mrs. Matlock. “To celebrate we are going to go on a Field Trip today”.
“Yay !!” shouted the children.
“Where are we going Mrs. Matlock?” said Judy as she was putting on her jacket.
“I know I've asked your parents to keep this a secret, but I will tell you now that we are going to go visit a flower farm. That is why I've asked you to wear your jackets and boots” explained Mrs. Matlock.
Everyone was all set to leave and they boarded the bus. It was just a short trip to the flower farm. As they pulled into the driveway, Mrs. Matlock asks “Who can tell me what the sign says?”
Everyone shouted at one time “ Franke's Flower Farm!! Yay we're here!”
When the bus came to a stop, Mrs. Matlock stood up and looked back at the children. “ Before we get off the bus and since this is your first field trip, I have a couple of rules you must follow...
First, you must all stay together
Second, you must all listen to Mr. Franke
Third, take a good look at all the pretty flowers
let's all have fun!”
The children were all excited as they filed out of the bus. Mr. Franke greeted them at the door. “Hello kids! I am Mr. Franke. Let's go look at some of my flowers.” First they came upon some foxgloves growing in the field beside the driveway.

“That's a funny name” said Susie.
“Yes it is” chuckled Mr. Franke. “You must know that this plant is very pretty but it can also be very dangerous because it is a poisonous plant. We aren't going to go touch or smell this one. “
“Wow! Flowers are poisonous?” Georgie asked in amazement.
Next they saw lots of plants growing in pots along the shop wall.

“These are some of the herbs that we grow” said Mr. Franke. “There are also plants that you can eat and they are good for you. It's very important that you should always ask an adult about flowers before you pick or smell them.”
“Oh I like this one! It is my favorite colors!!” Missy said as she pointed towards the ones hanging from the pergola.

“Those are very pretty Missy. I know what they are. They are called Fuschia” Mrs. Matlock said with a grin.
“Now I'm going to take you to the magical part of our flower farm” Mr. Franke said very mysteriously. This is our Fairy Gardens”. All the children stopped walking and looked around. “ This garden is where our fairies come out in the evening and dance among the little flowers. Sometimes they will peek out and see what you are doing, So look very closely” Mr. Franke told the children as he bent over to look under one of the Fern leaves that he had brushed aside. This was the part of the field trip that he most enjoyed. He watched in pure delight as the children were so desperately trying to catch a glimpse of a Fairy amongst the miniature little Furniture that he had made and placed in his garden.

Mrs. Matlock noticed that Judy was yawning. So she glanced at her watch and saw that it was time to leave. “It's time to go kids! Tell Mr. Franke Thank You for the tour”.
“Thanks Mr. Franke” they all chanted as they were boarding the bus. “We had a lot of Fun!”

A New Dress for the Dance

The school is having a Valentine's Dance for everyone on Friday. Judy is so excited! She overheard Billy telling his friends that he was going to be there. She can't wait to go home and tell her Mom about the dance. Oh it's going to be so much fun, she thought.
The bus pulled up to her house to let her out and she almost fell out the door trying to hurry into the house. "Be careful Judy" said the driver. Judy looked back and smiled then continued on her way up her driveway. She burst in the front door yelling "Mom, Mom where are you?"
"In the kitchen" her Mom yelled back. "What's wrong Judy?"
"Mom look!" she said as she handed her Mom the note from Mrs. Matlock. "We are having a dance at school! Can I go??"
Her Mom took a deep breath, relieved that there wasn't a major catastrophe happening. She could see that Judy was pretty excited though. "This would be your first dance, wouldn't it? That would make any little girl a bit anxious. I'm sure you will be able to attend Judy. Maybe we should go shopping tonight for a brand new dress?"
" What? A DRESS!" Judy questioned. "Why do I need a DRESS?"
You see, Judy is a bit of a Tomboy and dresses aren't in her wardrobe very often. But she knew that her Mom wouldn't let her go to the dance in her old holey jeans and a t-shirt. After supper they would go shopping!
Judy and her Mom were in the car on the way to the Shopping Mall, when her Mom tells her "Judy I remember seeing a beautiful dress in this little girls store. I think you will like it. We will go there first."
"OK" she said reluctantly.
When they got to the Mall, her Mom got out of the car and started quickly walking to the doors. "Come on Judy! This is going to be so much fun."
Somehow Judy had a feeling this wasn't going to be as much fun for her as it was for her Mom.
Then when she saw this store coming up that had all the pink, glittery and sparkly signs...she knew. This was not good!
Mom walked right over to the row of dresses and pulled out this DRESS.

"MOM!! Not that one! It's too pink and Puffy!" Judy whined.
Mom held it out in front of her and said "But it has some matching pink glitter shoes and you would look so beautiful."

"But I don't want to be BEAUTIFUL. I just want to dance and you can't dance with those shoes. The glitter would fall off and everybody would know it was from me." Judy was trying her hardest not to cry.
Mom realized that Judy wasn't quite ready to be that dressy yet so she agreed. "I think you are right Judy. This is more of a wedding dress isn't it? What do you think would be a good dancing dress?"
Judy went down the aisles until she found a pretty blue dress. "This is it Mom. I found the perfect dress".
Mom agreed again. It was the perfect dancing dress and her little girl was going to be absolutely beautiful in it.

Friday finally came. All the children were talking about going to the dance. Judy got all dressed up in her pretty blue dress and she did look lovely. Even Billy Burton walked by her and gave her a slug on the arm while he was saying "You look OK".
Judy thought to herself "OK is good!! This is a good night!"

My placemat swap partner....

My placemat swap partner could not have made a more perfect placemat for me!!!
I belong to a quilting group (Tea/Coffee Quit Along) and we had a placemat swap. We were assigned a partner and then you have to make a placemat for that person and in turn they will make a placemat for you! My partner was DEE. She knew that I liked pink & aqua and that one of my collections was of cherries in my kitchen.
When I opened the envelope and saw the colors, I knew I was going to love it. Then when I unfolded it and saw the beautiful handiwork that she had done....I almost cried. Isn't this just the cutest??

prim2pink ~ letter C

All the children were sitting quietly in their seats while listening to Mrs. Matlock read a story from the library book. Then a screech came across the loud speaker "Mrs. Matlock, you have a visitor waiting here in the office."
"Thank you. I'll be there in a couple of minutes" Mrs. Matlock replied.
Luckily she was toward the end of the book, so she finished the story and then told all the children to get a clean piece of paper out while she put the book away.
"I have invited someone here as surprise for you. Children I would like you to get your Crayons out and color a picture of anything you would like. I will be right back." Off she went towards the office.
All the children got out their crayons and started coloring.
A few minutes later, Mrs. Matlock walked into the classroom with a pretty young lady.
Mrs. Matlock & the lady stood in front of the class, "Children I would like you to put down your crayons now. I have someone I would like you to meet." said Mrs. Matlock " I would like for you to say Hi to Carin."

"Hello Carin!!" the children all chimed in.

"Carin is going to college to study Color psychology." continued Mrs. Matlock."I will let Carin explain."

"Hello children!" said Carin. " Do all of you know that there are studies that believe each color has a feeling? I am going to school to learn about colors and their feelings. I've asked Mrs. Matlock to have each of you color on a piece of paper and we are going to see if we can tell what your feelings may be right now. Won't that be fun?"

"Yeesss!!" the children were all excited to see what she could tell them.

Mrs. Matlock had gathered all the colored pictures while Carin was speaking and put them in a pile on her desk.

Carin picked the first one on the pile and held it up.

"Do you see how the color used the most in this picture is PINK?
Pink is a kind color. It means you are sweet and sensitive."
Then she laid that paper down and picked up another. "What color is in this picture class?" asked Carin.

"Green!!" shouted the children.
"You are right" said Carin. "Green is a color for safety. It means that you are generous and goodwilled. Next we have Purple. Do any of you know what that might mean?"

"A King!" said Robby "I drew a king!"
"You are actually right Robby. It is a color for people that are well liked and mysterious." Carin said.

"This color is yellow" Carin said as she held up the next paper. "Yellow is a happy color. This person is probably very playful". All the kids turned towards Cathy. They knew she had colored that paper and she was a happy person. Carin is guessing everybody right so far.

"Then we have this color...red! Red is for people that get excited. They are usually quick and get bored easy. Do you think that the study is pretty close to being right?" Carin asked the children.

They all looked at each other in amazement, "Yeah! It is!"they all shouted.
"Mrs. Matlock?" Cathy said as she was pointing towards the floor. "There's another paper on the floor.
"Whoops! I did drop one." Carin bent down and picked up the paper. Mrs. Matlock started laughing as she looked to see who's it was. It was Judy's paper and it looked like this!

"Now how do you explain this one Carin?" she snickered.
Hummmmmmm..... COLORFUL
