When we got to the top of a hill, per the boys request or my suggestion or my insistence, I recited what I could remember from Robert Frost's poem. I must have memorized it in high school or college because the first 6 lines came back to me. It was exhilarating. I felt brilliant. I repeated what I knew again. Loudly. Then looked up the rest on my iPhone.
We continued down to the park all the way to The Pool to check out the ducks. It was so satisfying to bring a book to life, yet still be within walking distance to a Dunkin Donuts. 3 hot chocolates with whip cream and 2 donuts later we were ready to do it again. But we had promises to keep. And miles to go before we had to pick Ella up from basketball practice. And miles to go before we had to pick Ella up from basketball practice. Or something like that.
|When it came to the part in the poem about the only sound is downy flake, I asked the boys what they could hear. |
Our woods had a soothing mixture of birds, the crunchy snow beneath our boots, and firetruck sirens.
I just got the updated amount raised for Mohammed's Sneaker Project.
So far the total amount raised is $1500! Incredible.
And in case you're curious, I didn't delete any comments from the post.
There was no need. You guys are so kind. Thank you.
