I’m early for The Weekend Roundup. I’ll add the link when it becomes available.
Starts with “H.”
House, as in our new house. We looked at so many properties and this one just seemed right to Dear and me.
We get possession on September 20th!
A Favorite. Hobby Horse
Addy looks quite pleased holding the “reins” on this hobby horse!
Horse: The famous White Horse from Banbury Cross.
When I was a school teacher we had a training session on how important nursery rhymes were to a child’s language development and future reading skills. So take that baby on your knee and have fun with all the nursery rhymes out there. Sing them instead of just saying them. I remember bouncing our three kids on my knee with this one. Now with our little granddaughter I’ve enjoyed bouncing her on my knees and repeating this rhyme.
Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross
To see a fine lady upon a white horse
With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes
She shall have music wherever she goes
In 2014 Dear and I visited Banbury in Oxfordshire specifically so that I could see this sculpture in the town center. You can read about this statue and some of it’s history in a post from 2014, Banbury~Oxfordshire
Thank you Tom for hosting The Weekend Roundup!
