Silly Monkey Story - Onion School
In a nearby town, there is an original schoolhouse built in 1895 with the name "Union School". Shortly after Adam started to read, we drove past it, and he asked me, "Why is that school called 'Onion School'?" We laughed because as with new readers, sounding out words doesn't always work.
Since then, our whole family calls it the Onion School, and every Union Street is also Onion Street. Recently, Dova added a story that the cafeteria at the Onion School serves onions every day, along with mashed potatoes. On the way home from camp, Dova related this story to me on my iPhone via Audioboo:
She is a natural performer and I have been capturing the kids' stories on Audioboo for a few months. Most of them are better than this one... If you're really interested (which I can't imagine unless you are Doug or me), you can subscribe to them as a podcast.
