    Hey Ginny ~

    I love the short poem by Robert Louis Stevenson. It was one of my favorites when I was memorizing itwith Richie and Kalene.

    I can still remember lying in my bed while it was still light out, and the older kids were still outside playing in the pool. Oh the jealousy I felt. I just couldn't understand why I had to go to bed. Even thought I was like 6 and it stayed light out until about 10. I do get it now though.

    Thanks for the quotes and the memories.
