Two Knights and an Adventure ~ True Story
Two Knights and an Adventure
I took my seven year old grandson, Logan, to the library this week and we checked out 8 books. We have read six of them so far, and I always begin our story time with the title, including and of equal importance, the author, and the illustrator. Writing a story is no little thing and credit should be given where it is due.
This afternoon, Logan asked me if we could take a walk and I said I thought that was a splendid idea. He, then, very seriously asked me if he could take his sword on our walk and came waltzing out of his room with two plastic swords, one for him and one for me. As we got to the street, he informed me that we were two knights (hey, we had our swords, after all) and we were off on an adventure.
There is a little retention pond across the street from our house that Logan and I have visited a few times but last year a sign was posted in the neighborhood that an alligator was seen in that pond, so we have not ventured there in awhile. Well, today was the day for bravery and adventure, and Logan wanted to check out the pond, so tentatively we headed across the street.
Then, he informed me that he was Knight Logan and I was Knight Gramma...this is cute, hang on...So we discussed what I should call him....and I suggested "Sir Logan". He was good with that. I, then, asked him what we should call me..."Sir Gramma"? No, that would not do....with his most serious, authoritative little voice he proclaimed, "Your name is "Ma'am Gramma", and we are the bravest knights in the land."!
On our excursion, we saw a turtle, two ducks and about 5 ibis at the water's edge, and explored what looked to be a little sand bag wall with a bridge of iron grating, and then happily headed home. Now here is the really cute part... Logan says to me, "Gramma, you should write a story about this adventure and us knights...I'll be the author and you will be the illustrator!" Now seriously, does it get any more precious than this?
