Of Pirates and Poetry

  logo i heart faces Matt is one of our FAVORITE friends!

He graciously allowed me to take this picture

in his Jack Sparrow hat!

He is the coolest!

captain jack sparrow 2 Pirate Wind

The autumn wind's a pirate,
  Blustering in from sea;
With a rollicking song, he sweeps along,
  Swaggering boist'rously.

His skin is weather-beaten;
  He wears a yellow sash,
With a handkerchief red about his head.
  And a bristling black mustache.

He laughs as he storms the country,
  A loud laugh and a bold;
And the trees all quake and shiver and shake,
  As he robs them of their gold.

The autumn wind's a pirate,
  Pillaging just for fun;
He'll snatch your hat as quick as that,
  And laugh to see you run!

Mary Jane Carr

Happy Halloween!

So cool! I wish I had older kiddos around who would cooperate with Halloween costumes. I'm going to attempt to take photos of the kiddos tonight. Wish me luck! (Last year I was sick and we didn't end up doing Halloween. The year before I had absolutely no talent at taking pictures yet.) :)
