blossoming writer

Number 1 Son today had a writing assignment to go with this spelling work--I know I should make him do more of them but, they are so insanely stupid! A week or so ago, he's supposed to "write a funny story about finding life on another planet" using three of his spelling words--the kid's in first grade and you ask for humor??!?! Ugh. Anyway, he did really well, IMHO, on today's story. It's at least as good as half the stuff I've thrown on here, so I thought I'd share. (this is a piece of fiction)

My pet frog's name was Frisky. We called him Frisky because he was playful. I taught him to jump a hoop for a trick.
