I Spy Completed~



 I Spy a dragon fly on a field of blue,
 
 apron strings, butterfly wings,



 a ladybug or two,
  

no really quite a few! 



 


I spy a rocket ship, a train and tracks, a police car fast!











 The world on a spin, a flower's grin,   crayons in a row,


 a robot on show.

One snowflake,  

one bumblebee,


"my house" that's standing by a tree.

There are happy stars, and racing cars,

A man on a bike,


and a bowling ball's STRIKE!



There are puppies and cats,



their fronts and their backs.

I spy zebras, and chicks,


cows and owls,

A fox, some fish, and dino tricks.

I spy soccer balls, and tennis balls, and baseballs too,








Money to buy your tickets,





-don't forget your shoe!






I spy the church with its pointy steeple,




 

 and smiling faces of happy people.

There is plenty to see, I leave you the rest,








 With a "Thank you for coming! That's it, God Bless!"

 
I have been working on the silly little rhymes for about as long as the quilt! Second graders love the 
I Spy books, sometimes my class keeps them checked out of the school library for the majority of the school year. How perfect that the quilt is done, and will be on display in the classroom for Open House this coming Thursday. 





 



"The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah." Psalm 24:1, 10
