Friends Notes:

As soon as Fred gets out of bed
His underwear goes on his head.
His mother laughs “Don’t put it there,
A head’s no place for underwear!”
But near his ears, above his brains,
Is where Fred’s underwear remains.
At night when Fred goes back to bed,
He deftly plucks it off his head
His mother switches off the light
And softly croons,”Good night! Good night!”
And then, for reasons no one knows
Fred’s underwear goes on his toes.

You are invited to the first ever Winter Gathering in Colorado Springs!
January 7 - 9, 2011

On the agenda: Activities like sledding, ice skating, as well as a chance for a scavenger hunt, sightseeing, fellowshipping with other HSAers, playing games inside if it's too cold outside, and possibly a Civil War Ball…

Check it out: http://www.homeschoolalumni.org/viewtopic.php?t=18693

and let us know if you'd be interested in coming! I know it's rather early for definite responses - we just appreciate getting a “no,” a “maybe,” or a “possibly” if you think you might be interested! Hope to see you there!
