Presidents Poem

So, it is a sad day. A man who has meant a lot to me and my brothers and sisters passed away this week. Dr. B is what we called him. He was amazing. He was our 6th Grade teacher. He was more than a teacher he was our family friend. We played with his kids and we knew that he loved us also. He taught at West Elementary in St. George Utah. We were trying to remember a poem that he had us memorize. This is all I could come up with. I only remember the first 8 presidents. I found the rest on the internet and the last part is being pieced together by a classmate named Rachel Melville. Thanks Rachel.

George Washington, the choice of all
By John Adams was succeeded.
And then came Thomas Jefferson,
Who bought the land we needed.
Next Madison was called upon,
To keep our Nobleman.
And James Monroe then ushered in,
The Era of Good Feeling.
John Quincy Adams was the next,
And then came Andrew Jackson.
And after him Van Buren came,
And the Panics wild distraction.
Then Harrison for one month ruled,
And Taylor came in order,
And Polk and war with Mexico,
About a little border.
Then General Taylor was the choice,
But after one year only
Death called the hero to his rest
And left the chair to Fillmore.
Then Pierce and James Buchanan came
And the War closed thickly lowered.
And Lincoln was the chosen one,
The statesman for the hour.
Then after Lincoln's martyrdom,
Came Johnson of Tennessee.
And Grant a war time hero
The Silent Man was he.
Then R.B. Hayes was counted in, then
Garfield, second martyr,
Whose term was ended peaceably by
Chester Adams Arthur.
Next Cleveland came and Harrison,
then Cleveland came once more.
Then Roosevelt came to serve the state,
The people called him Teddy,
Then William .Howard Taft came on,
for duty ever ready.
Then Woodrow Wilson came to fill the
loftiest of stations.
He steered the Ship of State throughout
the World War of the Nations.
Next Harding ruled a few short
months, and Coolidge then succeeded,
Hoover served his country well
wherever he is needed.

31. Herbert Hoover
32. Franklin D. Roosevelt
33. Harry S Truman

34. Dwight D. Eisenhower
35. John F. Kennedy
36. Lyndon Johnson

37. Richard Nixon
38. Gerald Ford
Carter keeps peanuts in his jeans..Reagan he likes jellybeans!

Sweetheart dance

Sofia and Chris went to the Sweetheart dance last night at Bonneville High school. I got a little bit of them getting ready to leave. Sofia looked amazingly beautiful. I am sure she took Chris' breath away.

Friday the "13th"

Wow! It's really friday and supposedly the bad luck day. I don't think it will be bad luck. I don't believe in that. I am showing houses all day today. The people that I have been working with are pretty fun. They have a great sense of humor and I am excited to get to work with them again today. It's Valentines weekend and I just got a call last night for a last minute person to rent the cabin. I think it would be fun to go and play up in Island Park this weekend. Hopefully these people will want to.

Abbi is writing a book report, Lauren is going to a birthday party and Berg, well he's berg.

TTFN (Ta Ta for now!)

blazey day

So far today I have cleaned my house. It has needed it soooo bad. I am so grateful that I have good friends. My friend Darla came and helped me clean it. I am so grateful to her for her help. I am so disgusted by the way I have let it go. It looks tons better and even though it is still not done. It is a great start and the kids, although will not be happy, will have to help with the rest (the downstairs). Anyway, back to work.

We are having a great snow storm today. It just keeps comming down. Even though it would be nice to have it all gone, the new stuff makes it possible for us to continue sleeding at the Ucon pit with the kids. It also covers up the dirty looking snow and makes it so things don't look so depressing outside.

My friend Darla was telling me about a conversation she had with someone about canning. We are really excited about the prospect of doing our gardens and canning this year. This lady was saying that she puts herself on a canning schedule all year and that she does the winter stuff in the winter and summer stuff etc. So, she asked what winter stuff was and it was a huge eye opener for me and a great idea! Chili in the winter, soups, potatos. Why didn't I think of that? This lady was brilliant.

O.k. back to work. Not the house but my other job!

Weekend Sledding with friends

Last weekend we were invited to go sledding with some friends. We had a blast. Below is the video that we took from our fun experience. We also went this weekend. The snow was a little icy, but that just meant we went down faster. The kids had fun and so did us (the parents) Below is the video of our experience.
