The joy of a swing...

We've been busy working in the yard and I had a five year old girly helping me.  She had been working hard...

"Mom" the question began, "I'm just getting so tired.  Can I go swing so that I can get some more energy?"

            The Swing

by Robert Louis Stevenson

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside--
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown--
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!


  1. Absolutely love this photo!!! So much like you.

  2. She is so precious! Just the other day Brian was pushing Novalee on the big girl swing and she could not stop laughing. To hear their laughter brings so much joy!
