I was going through some photos on my phone and came across several videos, too. I had recorded the kids quoting their poems back in September, but never did anything with the video. I wanted to share them here so I’d have them. The poems are from the Abeka spelling, vocabulary and poetry books for their grades.

The first one is Laci quoting “The Elephant”.

Here’s Leslie quoting “Overheard in an Orchard.”

Leslie’s poem reminded me that Lauren had quoted the same poem, many moons ago when she was in third grade.

Here’s Mitchell saying “The Pasture”.

Mitchell quoted these when he was in Kindergarten!

With each child I’ve had, my life seems to have sped up. I’m so thankful for technology, and the ability to savor moments over and over again. Thanks for watching. 🙂

    Those videos are such treasures! You are blessed to have this technology to preserve these wonderful moments. I wish I had such jewels from my children.
