the letter

Our Year in Haiku, for you
*

Doug ~ fine dad, grandpa,

Best father-in-law and friend,

Will be missed dearly.

*

Paige showed running spark,

Earning multiple ribbons

In her track events.

*

Mason joined stage band,

Jazzing up his trombone beats.

Next stop, New Orleans?

*

Disneyland again?

Oh yes, we are obsessive.

Well, Stephanie is.

*

Tumalo State Park,

Where chipmunks stalk the campers

But aren’t too vicious.

*

Cape Disappointment –

Lewis and Clark tried to warn;

We camped anyway.

*

Weekend in Vegas?

Friends, dancing, Crazy Horse show?

Can’t talk about it.

*
The 12-year old boy

Is involved in Drama Club.

A natural choice.

*

The girl chose strings class,

Picking up the viola

To marvel us all.

*

Gone: Mazda sedan

Purchased: rollercoaster-car

(Stu’s Mini Cooper)

*

Beautiful classroom

In a brand-new green building;

Blissful teacher dreams.

*
Kids beg for a dog,

Parents want live-in masseuse,

Yet all still feel blessed.

*

~ Wishing you a merry 2011 ~

Jenn @ Youknow...that Blog? said...

I'd consider this a Noel-type Haiku... which just happens to be our theme for today. You know... just sayin'...

It's been quite a year, hasn't it? Glad I could share some of it, however vicariously, with you.

Merry Christmas, Steph!!
