My first Yiddish essay

I wrote it on Monday, Alexis illustrated it tonight at dinner:

Transliterally, it says:

Ikh hob sekhs gletlingel.
Es zaynen do tsvey hint.
Es zaynen do drey ketslekh.
Es iz do ayn hezeleh.
Dos hezeleh iz der shef iber ale.

Translaterally, it says:

I have six pets.
There are two dogs.
There are three cats.
There is one rabbit.
The rabbit is the boss over all.

I got a "gut"!
