For Uncle Jo-Jo

Since my brother asked, and since I've been slackin' on the blog lately (with sick kids and a sick self), here's some fun videos (from January) I think you'll especially like, Joel.

*Joel, I tried to put this up on the very day you asked--two weeks ago!! But Blogger gives me problems with videos, so I had to resort to youtube. Anyway, wanted you to know that I really tried (for two weeks!) because it meant so much that you cared! :)

First, Isaiah reading "PolkaBats"




And now, Elliot reading "Kansas City Octopus"


Translation:
Kansas City Octopus is wearing fancy slacks
Bell-bottom, just got 'em, 50 bucks including tax
Red corduroy and boy-oh-boy, they fit like apple pie
Multi-pocket snazzy trousers custom made for octopi
Fantastic plastic stretch elastic keeps 'em nice and tight
Kansas City Octopus is lookin' good tonight!


**Thanks, dear Hannita, for the very fun poetry book!!!

Great video! I've got to look up that poetry book...

Those poems might make less sense than the Dr. Seuss books I've been reading to my kiddos. But we love them, and I especially LOVE that they love them! I miss you all!
