Dr. Seuss

Had a birthday yesterday. Owen and Hali listened for a long time to all our Dr. Seuss books leftover from when their Dad and Aunt were children. Those are fun books to read.

Today Owen was playing football in the yard with his Dad. He sure loves football.

Hali was shoveling, how she loves the snow. She finally came in when she was soaked nearly throughout but did enjoy her nice warm bath and nap after.

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.
You'll look up and down streets.
Look 'em over with care.
About some you will say, "I don't choose to go there."
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street.
And you may not find any
you'll want to go down.
In that case, of course, you'll head straight out of town.
It's opener there
in the wide open air.
Out there things can happen
and frequently do
to people as brainy
and footsy as you.
And when things start to happen,
don't worry. Don't stew.
Just go right along.You'll start happening too.
