Peacock Reunion Late Summer 08

The weekend after we moved into our NEW house, and celebrated our TENTH anniversary...we celebrated with most all of Charles' mom's side of the family - the Peacocks/Adkins/Wares/Morrows. It was very fun and all kids played hard. It is amazing to see so many boys and girls all related to each other and having fun. One of the highlights was going down to the neighborhood pool (we were in Eufala, AL) and watching Shane and Marc throw the older kids into the pool - look how high!

From 'To A Young Son' by Julia Johnson Davis

In your face I sometimes see
Shadowings of the man to be,
And eager, dream of what my son
Will be in twenty years and one.

But when you are to manhood grown
And all your manhood ways are known,
Then shall I, wistful, try to trace
The child you once were in your face?

MY LITTLE ONE - By Tennessee Williams

My little one whose tongue is dumb, whose fingers cannot hold to things, who is so mercilessly young, he leaps upon the instant things, I hold him not.

Indeed, who could? He runs into the burning wood. Follow, follow if you can! He will come out grown to a man and not remember whom he kissed, who caught him by the slender wrist and bound him by a tender yoke which, understanding not, he broke.

Poem

We are so very glad that you are happy...
long may you keep so, my dear boy...
May you go on as well
as you have begun.
- Charles Darwin
