Coyote and the Cactus
I got to use paints in art class. I LOVE paints but they get messy and Mom says I can't use them so much. But I am better at them.
I wanted to do a rainbow at first, but then I wanted to do a sunset. I saw a picture of a sunset in the desert and it looked like a rainbow going down, so I did that.
Then I glued some black shadows on them Can you guess what they are?
It is a coyote and a cactus.
This coyote is a good coyote, not like the bad one on Road Runner that always gets into accidents. I am going to do a whole story. The coyote will be running from hunters and just before he gets caught, the nice cactus will drop some of its splinters and make the men jump and hop and get stuck and run away.
Then the coyote and the cactus will be friends after that. But they won't see each other a lot because cactuses don't move.
Then one day in years from now it will be really dry, the driest time ever and the coyote will find his friend, but the cactus is SO thirsty he could die. So the coyote will run and find a camel because they have LOTS of water in their bumps and he will come and give the cactus a drink. Then the two friends will sit together and watch the sun set like a rainbow.
Dad says it is a really good story. So maybe I will do more.
For now, there's just this picture. I like how they are friends but I wish the cactus could move. Then they could go on vacation together.
We are on vacation soon for Christmas. I got my list all done for Santa. Mom needs to mail it, but I have to do a picture for Santa first.
Anyway, when you get your story written about the cactus and the coyote, you'll have to have your dad post it for us!
Where are you going on vacation for the Holidays? I'm going skiing with my family in Colorado! I'm super excited about it.
But here in Northeastern Pennsylvania I live in a river-valley so the sun sets earlier and not quite as dramatically.
