March 29, 2010 – It’s Elementary!

Martin’s teacher had his class (4th grade) use the lambs on Martin’s farm as the basis of a creative writing exercise. She was good enough to send some of the stories on and I’ve put some on today for your enjoyment!

Spy Lambs

There once was lamb that Martin fed and took care of. One night she gave birth to some babies. Three babies to be exact. They were so cute and cuddly. Two boys and a girl. They were AWESOME SUPER SPIES. They were the best in the business and secretly national jewel thieves. Trust me, they were pretty awesome at what they did, but Martin always thought of them as cute and cuddly animals. One day they were on a mission trying to steal the famous picture of Mona Lisa painted by Leonardo da Vinci!!!!!!! That’s when their worst enemy, Leonardo da Vinci, came through the window shattering the glass with his new and old sidekicks. The old sidekick was Daytona, and his new partner, who came in second, was Joshua. It was an all out battle between the lamb triplets and Leonardo and his sidekicks over the Mona Lisa painting, but when the smoke cleared away the champion was, of course, the 3 babies who then went back home and fell softly to sleep in Martin’s barn.

Tank and the Triplets, Super Family

Tank is a sheep with super powers. Tank has super speed, shape shifting and also has telephonesis. That is when you have a telephone in your head. Tank has triplets and they of course have powers too. These powers include things like the super bahh and they are best in disguises. Unfortunately they will not be able to do super work until they master their powers and train very hard so that they do not get hurt and do not let the bad people hurt other people. Plus they have to grow up a bit and when they do they will get new powers and soon they will be saving the World with their super bahh just like their Mom does.

Just Kidding

Tank the lamb joined the FBI and got her degree. She was so intelligent that she became the head leader in 3 and 1/2 hours and was recognized by the town in 1 hour. She could recognize any fingerprint, so was called upon to help solve many crimes. After that she joined the Navy. She stopped the terrorist Osama Bin Laden. She got to meet Barrack Obama because of this accomplishment. She ran and got home to see Martin before the big flood of 2010. Martin looked at Tank and there were 3 babies beside her. Because of the approaching waters they ran and escaped. Then they lived happily ever after in their secret hideout.

Tank and the Triplets

I think that lambs are very cute, but Tanks triplets are the cutest so far. When I went to the State Fair and visited the farmhouse I got to see a ewe give birth to a lamb! It was very cute and disgusting at the same time! It was still a great experience. I also got to see a cow give birth to a calf. You should go this year and experience these awesome things!

Lambs are very cute animals when they are young. Lambs also represent spring and the new season. The old saying goes that March starts as a lion and ends as a lamb. This means that March starts harsh, but ends sweet. You can say that because lambs are sweet and lions are harsh. I think Martin is very lucky to have a lamb because they are graceful animals and look very cuddly and sweet. They may be hard to take care of with all of the bottle feedings, but in the end you end up with happy, healthy animal. You would be so lucky to have triplet lambs because it may be hard for the third lamb to live, but it can work out if you take good care of it and it’s mama does too. It can be hard, but it’s all worth it in the end! Just ask Martin!

The Big Rush
One exciting morning Martin’s mom rushed into Martin’s room. “Wake up, wake up. Come see something wonderful!” she shouted. So, Martin got up and slipped on some slippers and a jacket. He followed his mom downstairs, through the kitchen, and outside to the barn. Martin was surprised to find three little lambs scattered around Tank. Martin knew automatically that his favorite one was the small girl lamb. She was white with tan spots. He called her Spotty. “They’re adorable,” Martin said. “Adorable indeed,” his mom agreed. They grabbed some bottles and began to feed them.

The Alien Lambs
There were once alien lambs that were trapped on a farm. When they tried to get out they couldn’t get out of that place because they were trapped by a starving monster that was 1,000 feet high. The monster wanted to eat them for supper, but the aliens said, “We do not taste very good!” The monster said, “Ok, we won’t eat you guys because we need you guys to work for us. You can clean the bathrooms, take out the trash, and eat the trash too. Don’t think of getting out of here because you won’t get out at all.” One of the alien lambs said, “We can get out of here tonight. I have a plan!” The others said, “How are we going to get out of here?” The aliens discussed the plan and it worked! The climbed into the trash cans one night before the garbage man came and the three alien lambs were able to escape back to their home planet! They lived happily ever after.

The Bitter Sweet Birthday
There once was a sheep. The ewe’s name was Tank. So, Tank was walking in the field. Then Tank saw a big black funnel. Tank’s owner, Martin, came running outside screaming, “TORNADO, TORNADO!” Martin ran out into the field to put all the animals in the barn. When Martin got into the barn, the tornado hit. After the tornado hit all Martin could see was dust and houses on the ground. But when Martin looked at Tank, he was shocked. Tank had just given birth to 3 babies. Then Martin’s family ran outside. They were all shocked too. Then they lived happily ever after with the 3 fluffy, soft lambs.
