This girl cannot get enough when it comes to books, and you can usually find her tucked in a corner reading a book IF she is not attached to my hip.

Song for a Fifth Child

by Ruth Hulburt Hamilton
Mother, oh Mother, come shake out your cloth,
Empty the dustpan, poison the moth,
Hang out the washing and butter the bread,
Sew on a button and make up a bed.
Where is the mother whose house is so shocking?
She’s up in the nursery, blissfully rocking.
Oh, I’ve grown shiftless as Little Boy Blue
(Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).
Dishes are waiting and bills are past due
(Pat-a-cake, darling, and peek, peekaboo).
The shopping’s not done and there’s nothing for stew
And out in the yard there’s a hullabaloo
But I’m playing Kanga and this is my Roo.
Look! Aren’t her eyes the most wonderful hue?
(Lullaby, rockaby, lullaby loo).

The cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow,
For children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow.
So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep.
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.

Cowboy Breakfast

So the kids school hosts an annual Cowboy breakfast. This year they had a contest for best dressed and most talented....of course not all four Bolander children could have been chosen (they would start thinking I'd paid the judges!!) but they are all winners.
Maya and Addison both won - most talented -Maya for singing Ingrid Mickelson's song "the way i am" and Best dressed to Addison. The boys danced The Cotton Eyed Joe (which they learned the dance steps off you tube!!) fun stuff here down yonder in Texas~~~
