John Reading Again

I went thought the blog to gather all of the photos of John reading. Here they are.
 Leather Chair, Book of Mormon Stories, Junie B and Go Dog Go, Babies, Camp ChairClara, Surprise Visit, Dennings Visit , Quite Reading, The Childrens Hour, Making Houses, On John, Valentines Day, and Mo Willams.
Way more then I thought! I think it is so fun to see how he has grown. He goes from being read to, to reading to others. I am sure there will be more to come.

Christmas Violin Recital

 Clara did a great job at her Christmas recital this year. She had great dynamics and fingering. She played Friendly Beasts, Rocking Carol, Ding Dong Merrily on High, and Good King Wenceslas.

Afternoon on a Hill


I will be the gladdest thing
   Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
   And not pick one.

I will look at cliffs and clouds
   With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
   And the grass rise.

And when lights begin to show
   Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
   And then start down!

Thanksgiving Day

 We were so glad to be able to spend Thanksgiving with the Andersons this year. It is always so welcoming and comfortable. I made creamed cauliflower per request and we loved Eileen's banana cream pie. I can see why it is a tradition. We hung out and the children had a great time with the new batch of kittens. I have never seen Margaret with such big smiles.
