Listen My Children And You Shall Hear

Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere...
so said Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
We will be reading it today to celebrate
the birthday of Paul Revere, born on January 1,1735.
We are reading the version that is graved and painted by
Christopher Bing.
We will also look at this website
for more information about the man.

Right now Princess is enjoying her first day of t.v.
without Farmer Dad trying to change over to CSPAN,
and I am enjoying having the computer all to myself.
I will be starting a batch of cupcakes right after breakfast
so we can celebrate after school, which we decided will take place
while Little Man naps today so she can watch the tube this morning,
or just run around like a nut without hearing "be careful" and "what are you doing?"
LOL. It has been a long three weeks and as much as we love him, we were ready for
him to go back to work.
I promise to post pictures later today of all we do.

Happy New Year!!

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
