Old Style Yester Year Christmas in July ~ Christmas is for Children ~ Think Ahead and Look Back in Wonder ~

Years go by quickly
and
soon we
are
here today !

 Take time
for the children in your life ...


Before you know it, they are grown ...


When our kids were young,
they attended public schools ....


We nourished our children with healthy food, lots of sleep,
a good simple family homelife ...


trips to see the relatives ..


understanding of their roots ...

celebrating holidays ...


and many trips to our local libraries, wherever we lived .

It as our eldest who led us by need, 1st to the libraries ... as a toddler for
story times in a new city in Texas ...


One of his grandmother's had been keen on poetry and taught his
father poems to memorize for after dinner social times ...



She was quite a bit of poetry herself ...


Our eldest enjoyed stories read aloud from the earliest age ....

Starting as an infant with old fashioned nursery rhymes, folk songs,
a wee bit of reggae, made up as I went along rhymes and songs ...
he became attached to words and letters as a very young stage ...



Soon we had a bundle or brood on our hands ~
the greatest gifts we've known...


Others were spoon fed children ...


or juggled the question of career over family ...


To us, the home was Was family ..

A gift every day ..


tempered with
humble thanks for what we had been given....


We have felt blessed from friends and many angles


With strong minds and hard work
to complete our goals ...



taking time along the way
to gather together when we can ...








Thankful for every year together ...








Cherish good times ..


Arrive alive ...


Celebrate simple gifts ...




Cherish childhood ...







Give back when you can ...




Eat more cranberries ...

























Support your local home team ...





Keep the family pictures ...









Enjoy silly things ..




Take your children to story times at your local library !

Literacy is the greatest gift from your heart ...



Childhood is
such an important time ...





































From generation to generation ....

















Celebrate family and childhood !




They are grown so quickly !










Whether it's hot July
or cold December,
keep family
and children in your hearts !
