A Song My Kids And I “Wrote” …

… with some rather significant help for the structure and melody from a favorite Christmas carol! We composed this ditty on the way home from school, and it escapes my memory why we thought it was a good idea. Still, we enjoyed thinking of fun things from school.

I'm a daughter, wife, mother of two, PTA volunteer (way too many hours), church goer, liberal-leaning transplanted Texan. I love to write (boy, do I love to write), watch good TV and talk to other people. I also love sports (when my kids play) and spending time with friends and family. I believe that our society would flourish if we lived the Golden Rule ... really, truly lived it.
