“Poppy n’ Pixie”

Hi, my name is Katie.We’re getting 2 goats named Poppy n’ Pixie.Goats are fun, goats are sweet.Goats never get enough to eat.Goats hopI wish they could mop!
At night they sleep.You won’t even hear a peep!



When the wind blows,the chimes chime.When the chimes stop chiming,they are useless and won’t be used again.Just like paper,but paper can be used again.At least you can write on the back,it gives you a second chance to do the right thing.Life doesn’t always give you second chances.
