The Autumn Air Was Fresh, by Rebecca R

I found this beautiful poem as I was sorting through piles and piles of school papers to determine which ones were worth keeping and which ones were going to the great big Hefty Flex garbage bag. She wrote it (all the way back) in the fall of 2nd grade. She is currently in the third trimester of her 3rd Grade year.
The autumn air was fresh.
Off in the distance I heard a leaf blower.
The autumn leaves blew in the air.
I took a deep breath and smelled… PIE!
The countryside looked beautiful.
I noticed a spider in the attic.
I felt wind blowing in my hair,
I wished I could play all day!

Memory Lane: I love this picture!

This picture was taken 2 days before Alexander was born. The kids and our neighbors had a lemonade stand to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Here Rebecca and I are posing back to back. She is pregnant too! By the way, the kids raised over $350 and donated it all to the Red Cross!
