Will's Field Trip to the Apple Orchard


I spent part of the day at an apple orchard in late Sept with Will and all of the other PreK classes at DLES. So many very little people out in that orchard! Here is a picture of Ms. Sansom's class (Will is blending in to the apples on the ground in the back row...)

He picked this one. Imagine how this area smelled - very strange, indeed.


Oh but wait a minute, I think I might want this one instead. Four-year-olds are awesome.



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
