Swinging is Underrated

Emory and I have been swinging outside everyday since Sunday. I forgot how much fun it is to swing. Betsy and I used to sing the following poem as we would swing at my Nana Cable's house.

The Swing
by Robert Louis Stevenson
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside—
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown—
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
