While browsing around in the blog world, I discovered this, which my family will appreciate! (Click on the image to enlarge)
Pretty fun, huh?
The Highwayman is a poem that my Dad can recite from memory, and has done so often at family gatherings of all kinds. When I see these words, I can hear his voice saying them.
Dad, could you record that for posterity. Please? I love you!
Here is a link to the actual poem, and here is some interesting information about it on wikipedia.
It's interesting to read this poem again as an adult after not hearing it for awhile. It's rather depressing. But funny thing is, I don't think of it at all that way. I think of it as adventurous and romantic, and very, very cool. I think it's because whatever my Dad did was that way to me when I was growing up.
Speaking of the blogging world, this blog is now listed on Mormon Mommy Blogs, under the Generally Speaking category.
And now, off to fold two loads of laundry. I've milked the cow (with Joseph), made whole wheat pancakes from scratch and scrambled eggs for breakfast, had scripture study, got the kids off to school, and folded two loads of laundry already. Here we go with the day!!
