SHERI's SUTHERN LIVIN'
parents used to take me up to my great-grandmother's house in McHue,
Arkansas for a good part of the summer to help with her chicken
houses. McHue is back in the Arkansas hills but we called them
mountains. I loved it there mostly because my two
cousins, Winfred Lloyd and Larry were there just itching to get me out
and show me things -- so as soon as I got there, we were gone. The
cousins showed me a tree with bees buzzing all around and they said we
would leave it there for the bears. They showed me
tracks in the dirt of a mountain lion. They showed me how to
catch snakes and how to grab catfish out of the pond. And
after a day of running all over the mountain, we'd come home to
Granny's fried chicken and peach pies. Everything she
cooked was cooked on a wood stove. Granny didn't work us too hard because she knew the creek was calling
us. But when we were in the chicken houses, I spent a
great deal of time trying to save sick chickens's lives. Maybe that's when I decided to be an R.N.?
Good summer memories and just look at all the valuable things I learned....smile

reading may not be at the top of your son or daughter's list, but it
should be. Research shows children and adolescents who don't make time
for reading over the summer lose up to two months of instructional
time! The good news is that summer reading can, and should, be fun!
